Advanced Materials in the Manufacturing Revolution: Proceedings of the Conference Held at Argonne National Laboratory June 14, 1988

Advanced Materials in the Manufacturing Revolution: Proceedings of the Conference Held at Argonne National Laboratory June 14, 1988

Date: February 1989
Creator: Nevitt, Michael V. & Peterson, Norman D.
Description: A conference at Argonne National Laboratory for senior executives of small and medium-size manufacturing companies covered technical and managerial issues involved in adapting advanced materials and new manufacturing methods. Seven speakers discussed how high performance metals, alloys, ceramics, polymerics and their composites are replacing conventional mill-product materials and how these new materials are impacting manufacturing methods and products.

Alternatives for Disposal of Raffinate from the TRUEX Process

Alternatives for Disposal of Raffinate from the TRUEX Process

Date: December 1989
Creator: Trevorrow, L. E. & Vandegrift, G. F.
Description: Possible methods for disposing of the immobilized raffinate from TRUEX processing are reviewed. The purpose of the TRUEX process is to extract transuranium elements from high-level and TRU wastes into a small volume that can be managed at lower cost than that of the original wastes. The raffinate from the TRUEX process, containing negligible concentrations of transuranium elements, would be combined with salt solutions also derived from processing high-level waste, and the mixture would be converted to grout.

Argonne National Laboratory-East Site Environmental Report for Calendar Year 1988

Argonne National Laboratory-East Site Environmental Report for Calendar Year 1988

Date: April 1989
Creator: Golchert, N. W. & Duffy, T. L.
Description: The results of the environmental monitoring program at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) for 1988 are presented and discussed. To evaluate the effect of ANL operations on the environment, sample collections were made on the site, at the site boundary, and off the ANL site for comparison purposes.

An Assessment and Comparison of Fuel Cells for Transportation Applications

An Assessment and Comparison of Fuel Cells for Transportation Applications

Date: September 1989
Creator: Krumpelt, Mike & Christianson, C. C.
Description: Fuel cells offer the potential of a clean, efficient power source for buses, cars, and other transportation applications. When the fuel cell is run on methanol, refueling would be as rapid as with gasoline-powered internal combustion engines, providing a virtually unlimited range while still maintaining the smooth and quiet acceleration that is typical for electric vehicles.

An Automated Procedure for Covariation-Based Detection of RNA Structure

An Automated Procedure for Covariation-Based Detection of RNA Structure

Date: December 1989
Creator: Winker, S.; Overbeck, R.; Woese, Carl R.; Olsen, G. J. & Pfluger, N.
Description: This paper summarizes our investigations into the computational detection of secondary and tertiary structure of ribosomal RNA. We have developed a new automated procedure that not only identifies potential bondings of secondary and tertiary structure, but also provides the covariation evidence that supports the proposed bondings, and any counter-evidence that can be detected in the known sequences. A small number of previously unknown bondings have been detected in individual RNA molecules (16S rRNA and 7S RNA) through the use of our automated procedure. Currently, we are systematically studying mitochondrial rRNA. Our goal is to detect tertiary structure within 16S rRNA and quaternary structure between 16S and 23S rRNA. Our ultimate hope is that automated covariation analysis will contribute significantly to a refined picture of ribosome structure. Our colleagues in biology have begun experiments to test certain hypotheses suggested by an examination of our program's output. These experiments involve sequencing key portions of the 23S ribosomal RNA for species in which the known 16S ribosomal RNA exhibits variation (from the dominant pattern) at the site of a proposed bonding. The hope is that the 23S ribosomal RNA of these species will exhibit corresponding complementary variation or generalized covariation.

Chemical Technology Division Annual Technical Report 1988

Chemical Technology Division Annual Technical Report 1988

Date: May 1989
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory. Chemical Technology Division.
Description: Highlights of the Chemical Technology (CMT) Division's activities during 1988 are presented. In this period, CMT conducted research and development in the following areas: (1) high-performance batteries (mainly lithium-alloy/metal sulfide, sodium/metal chloride, and sodium/sulfur); (2) aqueous batteries (lead-acid, nickel/iron, etc.); (3) advanced fuel cells with molten carbonate or solid oxide electrolytes; (4) coal utilization, including the heat and seed recovery technology for coal-fired magnetohydrodynamics plants and the technology for fluidized bed combustion; (5) methods for recovery of energy from municipal waste and techniques for treatment of hazardous chemical waste; (6) nuclear technology related to a process for separating and recovering. transuranic elements from nuclear waste and for producing 99Mo from low-enriched uranium targets, the recovery processes for discharged fuel and the uranium blanket in a sodium-cooled fast reactor, and waste management; and (7) physical chemistry of selected materials in environments simulating those of fission and fusion energy systems.

Chemistry of Gaseous and Condensed Products in Coal Combustion and Conversion Systems

Date: August 1989
Creator: Sinha, S. N.; Natesan, K. & Blander, M.
Description: A recently developed computer program, based on geometric programming, was used to evaluate the chemistry of gaseous and condensed products that arise in conversion of Illinois bituminous coal under both oxidizing and reducing conditions.

A Classification of Lattice Rules Using the Reciprocal Lattice Generator Matrix

A Classification of Lattice Rules Using the Reciprocal Lattice Generator Matrix

Date: June 1989
Creator: Lyness, James N.
Description: The search for cost-effective lattice rules is a time-consuming and difficult process. After a brief overview of some of the lattice theory relevant to these rules, a new approach to this search is suggested. This -approach is based on a classification of lattice rules using "the upper triangular lattice form" of the reciprocal lattice generator matrix.

Concepts for Installation of the Precast Concrete Stay-in-Place Forming System for Lock Wall Rehabilitation in an Operational Lock

Concepts for Installation of the Precast Concrete Stay-in-Place Forming System for Lock Wall Rehabilitation in an Operational Lock

Date: December 1989
Creator: Waterways Experiment Station (U.S.)
Description: Report describing a study to extend the application of a method to rehabilitate damaged lock walls that uses a stay-in-place forming system. "During this study, operational and design criteria were developed to serve as the basis for design. A number of repair concepts were identified that satisfied the criteria" (abstract, para. 3).
