  1. Structural characterization and AC conductivity of bis tetrapropylammonium hexachlorado-dicadmate, [N(C{sub 3}H{sub 7}){sub 4}]{sub 2}Cd{sub 2}Cl{sub 6}

    Synthesis, crystal structure, vibrational study, {sup 13}C, {sup 111}Cd CP-MAS-NMR analysis and electrical properties of the compound [N(C{sub 3}H{sub 7}){sub 4}]{sub 2}Cd{sub 2}Cl{sub 6}, are reported. The latter crystallizes in the triclinic system (space group P1-bar, Z = 2) with the following unit cell dimensions: a = 9.530(1) A, b = 11.744(1) A, c = 17.433(1) A, {alpha} = 79.31(1){sup o}, {beta} = 84.00(1){sup o} and {gamma} = 80.32(1){sup o}. Besides, its structure was solved using 6445 independent reflections down to R = 0.037. The atomic arrangement can be described by alternating organic and inorganic layers parallel to the (11-barmore » 0) plan, made up of tetrapropylammonium groups and Cd{sub 2}Cl{sub 6} dimers, respectively. In crystal structure, the inorganic layer, built up by Cd{sub 2}Cl{sub 6} dimers, is connected to the organic ones through van der Waals interaction in order to build cation-anion-cation cohesion. Impedance spectroscopy study, reported in the sample, reveals that the conduction in the material is due to a hopping process. The temperature and frequency dependence of dielectric constants of the single crystal sample has been investigated to determine some related parameters to the dielectric relaxation.« less
  2. Former worekrs' notification adn medical screening Hanford

    CPWR is carrying out a screening program for former Hanford construction workers. This program includes continuing screening and re-screening services for the former worker population. The Program contains the following general components: Start-up planning/needs assessment: A modified exposure assessment will be conducted to identify high-risk buildings or areas, primary exposures, and worker populations at risk. Outreach: CPWR, as the research arm of the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO, has direct access to workers. CPWR will rely on direct mailings to lists of former workers, and work through and rely on existing organizations (unions, union pension funds, employers, DOE sitemore » administrators, etc.) to reach former workers and "get the word out." CPWR will establish/maintain an outreach office at each site listed above. This office will serve as the face of the Program to workers and their communities. Communications and intake center: CPWR has two established toll-free phone numbers (1-800-866-9663 and 1-888-464-0009). There is also a dedicated website for the program ( Workers can register with the Program by mail, telephone, or on-line. Work history: A standardized, structured work history is administered with modules that accommodate unique exposure scenarios for different occupations and different DOE sites. A work history interview is administered by a trained program interviewer. The work histories are used to determine whether a participant is eligible for the medical examination and to interpret the findings from the medical examination. Medical evaluation: The Program contracts with local medical providers qualified to deliver occupational medical screening services. All providers are credentialed. The Program contracts with a certified national laboratory and with NIOSH certified B-readers to review x-rays. Based on the work history, the participant is referred to a credentialed medical provider who is located close to the participant's home. If it is not convenient to use a credentialed provider, the Program will make arrangements, if necessary, for the participant to receive a physical exam through the National Supplemental Screening Program. Eligible participants will receive the same core medical exam (including a Beryllium Lymphocyte Proliferation Test, BeLPT), and in addition, based on their work history, they may be assigned to exposure specific modules for asbestos, silica, lead, noise, cadmium, and chromium. Lab work will be sent to a national laboratory for processing, except the blood samples for the BeLPT, which will be sent to a DOE-approved laboratory for evaluation. Determination of work-relatedness and follow-up: A letter of findings will be sent to the participant within 60 days of the exam. The letter is written and/or reviewed by occupational medical health personnel with knowledge of the DOE site(s) where the participant has worked and will include specific follow-up recommendations. Urgent findings are followed up by the provider without delay. Evaluation and quality assurance: All data are entered into the Program Data Management System (DMS). The DMS is web-based and relies on electronic submission of results, whenever possible. A de-identified data set on all participants is provided to Duke University Medical Center for evaluation and analysis. Each participant is asked to complete a satisfaction survey. The DMS will be used for quality assurance purposes and to also report summary data to the DOE. The BTMED.ORG website is encrypted using the industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology (128-bit encryption keys). Each individual that accesses the website is assigned a unique login ID, password, and token. Passwords are required to meet standards for "strength," including minimum length, multi-case, and use of numbers. The website is also protected by additional security layers including additional encryption, hardware and software firewalls, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), and virus protection.« less

  5. Rotationally inelastic collisions of LiH with He: Quasiclassical dynamics of atom-rigid rotor trajectories

    Rotationally inelastic cross sections for the LiH--He collision system are computed classically using a previously derived ab initio potential energy surface (D. M. Silver, J. Chem. Phys. 72, 6445 (1980)). The LiH is in its ground vibronic state and is initially taken to be in its j = 1 rotational state. The He is in its ground electronic state. The system is treated as an atom-rigid rotor interaction. The results are compared with previously computed cross sections derived from the same ab initio potential energy surface using the coupled states approximation for quantum mechanical scattering (E. F. Jendrek and M.more » H. Alexander, J. Chem. Phys. 72, 6452 (1980)). The theoretical total cross sections are averaged over a temperature distribution and are then compared with experimental measurements of corresponding cross sections for a rotationally resolved LiH beam ( j = 1) incident on a He gas target in thermal equilibrium at room temperature (P. J. Dagdigian and B. E. Wilcomb, J. Chem. Phys. 72, 6462 (1980)). The agreement between classical, quantum and experimental results is discussed.« less
  6. Failure of rigid shell models for rotationally inelastic LiH--He collisions

    A simple rigid-body model for rotationally inelastic LiH--He collisions has been implemented. This treatment assumes impulsive collisions between a point particle and a smooth spherical shell whose center is displaced from the center of mass of the LiH molecule. For a given collision energy the radius and displacement of the shell are adjusted for a best fit to the equipotential contour at this energy on the ab initio surface of D. M. Silver (J. Chem. Phys. 72, 6445(1980)). Cross sections for transitions from the rotationless j=0 state to all possible final j' states have been computed in a classical trajectorymore » approach and have been compared to more accurate quantum coupled-states values at E/sub col/=0.3 eV (E. F. Jendrek and M. H. Alexander, J. Chem. Phys. 72, 6452(1980)). The results from this simple model differ drastically both in magnitude and their j' dependence from those obtained in the more sophisticated treatment. While such rigid-body models have been used in the analysis of inelastic scattering experiments, the present study suggests that little physical significance can be attached to the size or shape of the rigid shell contour so obtained.« less
  7. Analysis of geophysical logs from the Hawaii geothermal project well

    A 6445-foot test well was completed on April 27, 1976 in the Puna Area of Hawaii as part of an extensive project to investigate a geothermal reservoir for energy production. Because bottom hole temperatures exceeded 300/sup 0/C, it was possible to run geophysical logs in the upper 3500 feet only. Study of conventional and induction resistivity, self potential, neutron, gamma ray, caliper, temperature, temperature differential and drilling rate logs show that porosity, permeability and fluid flow are qualitatively identified on the logs. Lithologic logs of sample cuttings taken at five- to ten-foot intervals (together with cores taken at approximately 700-footmore » intervals) substantiate preliminary findings of the porous and permeable zones. Although the logs investigated are above many of the zones of production, new information was obtained about the in-situ nature of permeability in Hawaiian basalts.« less
  8. Conventional alternating-current generators and engine generator sets

    Available data and techniques relevant to the selection and analysis of appropriate electrical generating equipment for application in the ICES program are presented. Of the general classes of commercially available a-c generators, the synchronous, rotating field alternator is most suited to ICES applications, and the focus of this technology evaluation. Conventional 60-Hz, alternating-current generators, with standard ratings ranging from 1.25 kVA to 10,000 kVA at voltages from 125 single-phase to 14,400 volts three-phase and speeds up to 1800 rpm are covered. Technical data for representative diesel engine-generator sets for continuous prime power ratings up to 6445 kW are presented. Approximatemore » 1976 costs of standard electrical generating equipment are given for: (1) standard conventional alternating current generators and (2) packaged engine-generator sets. The data indicate a decrease in unit costs as the power ratings increase, with the cost of the slow-speed units somewhat greater than that of the higher speed units. Maintenance data for a typical total energy plant presently in operation indicate that the average cost of maintenance amounts to 41 cents/kWh. A plot of available data also indicates a trend to decreasing operating costs with increasing unit size.« less
  9. Hawaii Geothermal Project. Phase II: final report on well HGP-A extension to Contract E(04-3)-1093

    Drilling was completed on HGP-A to a depth of 6445 feet on April 27, 1976. A final core was taken; a series of logging runs performed, both with Gearhart-Owen equipment and with the Kuster temperature gauge; and the drill stem was withdrawn and laid down on the side adjacent to the rig - as a safety measure against possible volcanic tremors. A maximum temperature to date of 288/sup 0/C (550/sup 0/F) was recorded on May 13 at 4500 feet. The weighted temperature probe would penetrate no deeper into the drilling mud, which apparently is stiffening. The temperature depth relationship developedmore » in HGP-A is illustrated.« less
