Coupled Hydrodynamic-Structural Response Analysis of Piping Systems

Description: This report describes in detail the expansion of the ICEPEL code for the coupled hydrodynamic-structural response analysis of pipe-elbow loops to general piping systems. A generalized piping-component model, a branching tce junction, and a surge-tank model are introduced and coupled with the pipe-elbow loop model so that a general piping system under the effect of internally traveling pressure pulses can be analyzed hydrodynamically, as well as structurally.

Description: In this work a technique was described to study the repassivation of bare metal surfaces. The advantage of this approach over other techniques is the ease with which multiple repassivation events can be studied. The repassivation rate of aluminum was found to depend on the anion in solution. Repassivation rates are higher for aluminum in phosphate and sulfate solutions compared to borate. It is possible that borate may interact more strongly than sulfate or phosphate on the bare aluminum surface blocking the diffusion of oxygen or changing the rate of repassivation.

Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance in Lincoln and Flathead Counties, Northwest Montana

Description: From abstract: Between mid-May and late June 1976, 3409 water and water-transported sediment samples were collected from 1781 locations spread over an approximate 17 000 kilometer area of northwestern Montana. All of the samples were analyzed for total uranium at the LASL, using standardized procedures and rigorous quality controls--the waters by fluorometry and the sediment (and those waters with >10 parts per billion uranium) by delayed-neutron counting methods.

Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the McGrath and Talkeetna NTMS Quadrangles, Alaska, Including Concentrations of Forty-Three Additional Elements

Description: From abstract: During the summer of 1977, 1268 water and 1206 sediment samples were collected from 1292 lakes and streams throughout the 33 600-km2 area within the boundaries of the McGrath and Talkeetna National Topographic Map Series quadrangles in south-central Alaska. Each of the water samples was analyzed for uranium and 12 other elements, and each of the sediment samples was analyzed for uranium, thorium, and 41 other elements. All of the field and analytical data are listed in appendixes to this report, but only the uranium and thorium data are discussed herein.

As stated in the abstract, "this study provides data on the physical and hydrological makeup of the Great Lakes waterway system and forecasts quantities, traffic patterns, and shipping cost of prospective bulk mineral commerce projected to be transported upon it" (p. 1). This report includes maps, tables, and illustrations.

Imagery from Infrared Scanning of the East and Southwest Rift Zones of Kilauea and the Lower Portion of the Southwest Rift Zone of Mauna Loa, Island of Hawaii

Description: From July 31 through August 4, 1973 night time flights for obtaining infrared imagery along the east and southwest rift zones of Kilauea and the southwest rift zone of Mauna Loa were undertaken on the island of Hawaii. Flights were also made on Hualalai and Kohala volcanoes but because of inconclusive results, they are not included in this report. Ground control stations had been established during daylight hours several days prior to starting the flight program. Students stationed at the ground central points guided the aircraft on predetermined flight paths by the use of directional lights which were visible to the plane's navigator. Results of the infrared scanning program are considered to be very successful. Events leading up to the final imagery on 8 x 10 color prints are discussed. The sum of $23,900 was designated by the NSF to be expended on aerial photogeologic work on the Hawaii Geothermal Project. Infrared scanning was the only aerial technique employed in this phase.

Heat Extraction from a Hydraulically Fractured Penny-Shaped Crack in Hot Dry Rock

Description: Heat extraction from a penny-shaped crack having both inlet and outlet holes is investigated analytically by considering the hydraulic and thermal growth of the crack when fluid is injected at a constant flow rate. The rock mass is assumed to be infinitely extended, homogeneous, and isotropic. The equations for fluid flow are derived and solved to determine the flow pattern in the crack. Temperature distributions in both rock and fluid are also determined. The crack width change due to thermal contraction and the corresponding flow rate increase are discussed. Some numerical calculations of outlet temperature, thermal power extraction, and crack opening displacement due to thermal contraction of rocks are presented for cracks after they attain stationary states for given inlet flow rate and outlet suction pressure. The present paper is a further development of the previous works of Bodvarsson (1969), Gringarten et al. (1975), Lowell (1976), Harlow and Pracht (1972), McFarland (1975), among others, and considers the two-dimensional rather than the one-dimensional crack. Furthermore, the crack radius and width are quantities to be determined rather than given a priori. 11 refs., 1 tab., 5 figs.

Measurement of N* Production in p p ---> p N* between 9-GeV/c and 300-GeV/c

Description: The authors have measured the missing-mass spectrum of p + p {yields} p + MM in the region 1.5 < MM < 7.0 GeV using the acceleration ramp of the NAL machine between 9 and 300 GeV/c and the H{sub 2} jet target. They observe strong N*(1690) and N*(2190) production and are continuing the search for heavier mass resonances.

Missing Mass Spectra from p p ---> p X from 9-GeV/c to 300-GeV/c

Description: Missing mass spectra were obtained by measuring recoil protons from the reaction p + p {yields} p + X in the Jacobian peak region at |t| = 0.175 and 0.25 (GeV/c){sup 2}. The incident momentum range from 9 to 300 GeV/c was covered continuously by taking data during the acceleration ramp of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory machine. Our missing mass range varied from 1.5 to 8.5 GeV and we observed the well known N*(1688) and N*(2l90) but no significant structures at higher mass.

Modifications to Filling and Emptying System of Lock No. 1, Mississippi River, Minneapolis, Minnesota =: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: From abstract: The existing locks at Locks and Dam No. 1 were constructed between 1929 and 1932. Problems have been experienced with accumulation of ice and debris at the intakes, air entrapment in the culverts of the filling and emptying system, excessive turbulence in the lock chamber during filling, and hazardous conditions downstream from the locks during emptying operations.

Neutron-induced mutation experiments. Progress report, March 1, 1975-- February 29, 1976

Description: The relative mutagenic effectiveness of neutrons of different energies were compared with x radiation in mice and Drosophila oogonia employing X-linked recessive lethal and specific locus mutation tests. The energies and doses used were 0.68 MeV, 2 MeV, and 6 MeV (250 and 500$sup 0$R), and 15 MeV (250, 500, and 1000$sup 0$R). The data thus far collected from the recessive lethal test indicate that 0.68 MeV neutrons have the highest RBE among the energies tested, followed by 6 and 2 MeV. The specific locus mutation data also indicate the highest RBE for 0.68 MeV, followed respectively by 2 and 6 MeV. The 15 MeV data is as of now incompletely analyzed, as are some dose points of 2 and 6 MeV. (auth)
