Acid-Mine-Drainage Problems: Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania

Acid-Mine-Drainage Problems: Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania

Date: 1951
Creator: Ash, S. H. (Simon Harry), b. 1889; Felegy, E. W.; Kennedy, D. O. & Miller, P. S.
Description: Report from the U.S. Bureau of Mines discussing the anthracite region of Pennsylvania and the efforts to prevent coal-mine drainage into nearby streams. According to the introduction, "The purpose of this report is not to develop a practicable or feasible method or process of treating acid mine water but rather to present available factual and deduced data that may be useful in showing pH range over which the treatment is to take place and the sludge products most likely to be handled" (p. 2).

Activation of hydrocarbons and the octane number

Activation of hydrocarbons and the octane number

Date: October 1, 1939
Creator: Peschard, Marcel
Description: This report presents an examination of the history of research on engine knocking and the various types of fuels used in the investigations of this phenomenon. According to this report, the spontaneous ignition of hydrocarbons doped with oxygen follows the logarithmic law within a certain temperature range, but not above 920 degrees K. Having extended the scope of investigations to prove hydrocarbons, the curves of the mixtures burned by air should then be established by progressive replacement of pure iso-octane with heptane. Pentane was also examined in this report.

An active particle diffusion theory of flame quenching for laminar flames / Dorothy M. Simon and Frank E. Belles

An active particle diffusion theory of flame quenching for laminar flames / Dorothy M. Simon and Frank E. Belles

Date: March 4, 1952
Creator: Simon, Dorothy M & Belles, Frank E
Description: An equation for quenching distance based on the destruction of chain carriers by the surface is derived. The equation expresses the quenching distance in terms of the diffusion coefficients and partial pressures of the chain carriers and gas phase molecules, the efficiency of the surface as a chain breaker, the total pressure of the mixture, and a constant which depends on the geometry of the quenching surface. Quenching distances measured by flashback for propane-air flames are shown to be consistent with the mechanism. The derived equation is used with the lean inflammability limit and a rate constant calculated from burning velocity data to estimate quenching distances for propane-air (hydrocarbon lean) flames satisfactorily.

Adaptation of a Cascade Impactor to Flight Measurement of Droplet Size in Clouds

Adaptation of a Cascade Impactor to Flight Measurement of Droplet Size in Clouds

Date: September 18, 1951
Creator: Levine, Joseph & Kleinknecht, Kenneth S.
Description: A cascade impactor, an instrument for obtaining: the size distribution of droplets borne in a low-velocity air stream, was adapted for flight cloud droplet-size studies. The air containing the droplets was slowed down from flight speed by a diffuser to the inlet-air velocity of the impactor. The droplets that enter the impactor impinge on four slides coated with magnesium oxide. Each slide catches a different size range. The relation between the size of droplet impressions and the droplet size was evaluated so that the droplet-size distributions may be found from these slides. The magnesium oxide coating provides a permanent record. of the droplet impression that is not affected by droplet evaporation after the. droplets have impinged.
