Advanced Fuel Cell Development Progress Report: April-June 1981

Description: Quarterly report discussing fuel cell research and development work at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). This report describes efforts directed toward (1) improving understanding of component behavior in molten carbonate fuel cells and (2) developing alternative concepts for components. The principal focus has been on the development of sintered y-LiAIO2 electrolyte supports, stable NiO cathodes, and hydrogen diffusion barriers. Cell tests were performed to assess diffusion barriers and to study cathode voltage relaxation following current interruption.

The Application of Neutron-Activation Analysis to the Determination of Leach Rates of Simulated Nuclear-Waste Forms

Description: The application of neutron activation analysis to the determination of element release from simulated nuclear waste forms during leaching is described for several different glasses. Potential neutron irradiation effects are discussed, and it is shown, by a series of leach tests on activated and non-activated glass samples, that neutron irradiation has no discernible effect on the release of silicon and cesium during leaching. The radioisotopes best suited for analysis with this method and their associated detection limits are identified, and the method's applicability to waste forms other than glass is discussed.

Beam-Profile Measurement of Laser Pulses Using a Spatial Filter to Sample the Hermite Modes of a String of Pulses

Description: Abstract: As a first step in the development of a beam-profile measuring instrument for laser sources that is capable of determining the distribution of low-order (less than 25) Hermitian modes in a series of laser pulses, I designed and evaluated the three key parts of such an instrument. First, there is the telescope system which allows the incident laser beam to be phase, beamwidth, and beam center matched to the optical spatial filter. Second, there is a brief error analysis of the structure of the mismatch function between the beam out of the telescope and that expected by the filter. Finally, there is the detailed analysis and design of the computer-generated spatial filter that will cause the incident-laser beam to be cross correlated with the low-order Hermite modes and will create an array of light spots in the detector (Fourier transform) plane each of which can be uniquely related to a particular Hermite mode of the original laser pulse. The principal conclusion is that the Hermite mode analysis can be done with better than 99 percent separation between modes, provided the phase between modes is uncorrelated from pulse to pulse when the filter has been fabricated with a two-level, gray-scale structure which samples the profile with either 0 percent, or 100 percent transmission.

Chemical Engineering Division Annual Technical Report 1981

Description: Highlights of the Chemical Engineering (CEN) Division's activities during 1981 are presented. In this period, CEN conducted research and development in the following areas: rechargeable lithium-alloy/iron sulfide batteries for electric vehicles and other applications, aqueous batteries--improved lead-acid, nickel/zinc, and nickel/iron--for electric vehicles, as well as advanced lead-acid batteries for electric.-utility load leveling, energy-efficient industrial electrochemical processes, molten carbonate fuel cells for use by electric utilities, coal technology, mainly fluidized-bed combustion of coal in the presence of an SO2 sorbent of limestone, heat- and seed-recovery technology for open-cycle magnetohydrodynamic systems.

A Computer-Based Accountability System (Phase I) for Special Nuclear Materials at Argonne-West

Description: An automated accountability system for special nuclear materials (SNM) is under development at Argonne National Laboratory-West. Phase I of the development effort has established the following basic features of the system: a unique file organization allows rapid updating or retrieval of the status of various SNM, based on "batch numbers," storage location, serial number, or other attributes. Access to the program is controlled by an interactive user interface that can be easily understood by operators who have had no prior background in electronic data processing. Extensive use of structured programming techniques make the software package easy to understand and to modify for specific applications. All routines are written in FORTRAN.

Control Rods in LMFBRs: A Physics Assessment

Description: This physics assessment is based on roughly 300 control rod worth measurements in ZPPR from 1972 to 1981. All ZPPR assemblies simulated mixed-oxide LMFBRs, representing sizes of 350, 700, and 900 MWe. Control rod worth measurements included single rods, various combinations of rods, and tantalum and europium rods. Additional measurements studied variations in B4C enrichment, rod interaction effects, variations in rod geometry, neutron streaming in sodium-filled channels, and axial worth profiles. Analyses were done with design-equivalent methods, using ENDF/B Version IV data. Some computations for the sensitivities to approximations in the methods have been included. Comparisons of these analyses with the experiments have allowed the status of control rod physics in the US to be clearly defined.
