Warheads and Fissile Materials:Declarations and Counting

Description: This paper reviews some of the issues about verifying the dismantlement of nuclear warheads and controlling nuclear materials in the context of arms control objectives. It is asserted that information about the stockpiles of nuclear warheads and materials is necessary to analyze the impacts and verification requirements of arms control measures including warhead dismantlement and fissile material controls. It is proposed that the US and the Soviets engage in a series of declarations about their stockpiles of nuclear weapons and materials. It is also asserted that currently it is more important to verify that warheads are retired to safe, secure facilities than to verify their dismantlement. It is proposed that production of new or rebuilt warheads be limited to less than the number retired each year. Verifying the number of new and rebuilt warheads deployed and the number retired avoids many of the difficulties in verifying dismantlement and material controls.

High beta and second stability region transport and stability analysis

Description: This document describes ideal and resistive MHD studies of high-beta plasmas and of the second stability region. Significant progress is reported on the resistive stability properties of high beta poloidal supershot'' discharges. For these studies initial profiles were taken from the TRANSP code which is used extensively to analyze experimental data. When an ad hoc method of removing the finite pressure stabilization of tearing modes is implemented it is shown that there is substantial agreement between MHD stability computation and experiment. In particular, the mode structures observed experimentally are consistent with the predictions of the resistive MHD model. We also report on resistive stability near the transition to the second region in TFTR. Tearing modes associated with a nearby infernal mode may explain the increase in MHD activity seen in high beta supershots and which impede the realization of Q{approximately}1. We also report on a collaborative study with PPPL involving sawtooth stabilization with ICRF.

Exploratory coprocessing research

Description: The objectives of this project were to (1) study the scope of the beneficial effects of hydrothermal pretreatment of coal on subsequent conversion, (2) identify and study the chemical or physical causes of this effect, and (3) attempt to elucidate the chemistry responsible for any coal-resid synergisms.

Coal Reserves Data Base report

Description: The Coal Reserves Data Base (CRDB) Program is a cooperative data base development program sponsored by the Energy Information Administration (EIA). The objective of the CRDB Program is to involve knowledgeable coal resource authorities from the major coal-bearing regions in EIA's effort to update the Nation's coal reserves data. This report describes one of two prototype studies to update State-level reserve estimates. The CRDB data are intended for use in coal supply analyses and to support analyses of policy and legislative issues. They will be available to both Government and non-Government analysts. The data also will be part of the information used to supply United States energy data for international data bases and for inquiries from private industry and the public. (VC)

Summary of the Exploratory Studies Facility Alternatives Study; Draft

Description: This paper presents a summary of the conduct and findings of the Exploratory Studies Facility Alternatives Study (ESF-AS). The Exploratory Studies Facility (ESF) is being planned for use in the characterization of a site for a potential high-level nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, NV. The purpose of the ESF-AS were to identify and rank order ESF-repository options and to improve understanding of the favorable or unfavorable features of the ESF design. The analysis resulted in the ranking of 34 options, in accordance with the extent to which each option could achieve the objectives. Additional findings regarding design features that were identified as key elements in an option`s ability to provide good overall performance are also discussed.

Fixing the Closed Orbits in the Debuncher

Description: Without a large number of new trims the best way to fix the closed orbits in the debuncher is to move quads. There are some obvious features in the vertical orbit, Figure 1, that look like they are indeed orbit distortions. The horizontal orbit, Figure 2, also has some systematic features that can be removed by moving a small number of quads. It is likely that removing these orbit distortions will help in improving the aperture. In addition, the second order effects of such large offsets in the closed orbit, like changes in phase advance due to the sextapoles, could improve operations.

D-Zero Collider Detector Cryopump Design and Operation

Description: The vacuum pumping of the CC Cryostat was anticipated to be dominated by a water vapor load. The Engineering Note 270, extrapolating from earlier experience, predicts the removal of water vapor will be the dominant pumping load and take ca. 45 days to remove at the pumping speed planned. Part of the planned pumping capability was a homemade, liquid nitrogen temperature, water vapor cryopump. This note describes the design, fabrication and performance experiences of the Cryopump described in the D0 assembly drawing 3740.514-ME-294693.

Confined zone dispersion flue gas desulfurization demonstration

Description: The CZD process involves flue gas post-treatment, physically located between a boiler's outlet and its particulate collector, which in the majority of cases is an electrostatic precipitator. The features that distinguish this process from other similar injection processes are: Injection of an alkaline slurry directly into the duct, instead of injection of dry solids into the duct ahead of a fabric filter. Use of an ultrafine calcium/magnesium hydroxide, type S pressure-hydrated dolomitic lime. This commercial product is made from plentiful, naturally occurring dolomite. Low residence time, made possibly by the high effective surface area of the type S lime. Localized dispersion of the reagent. Slurry droplets contact only part of the gas while the droplets are drying, to remove up to 50 percent of the SO{sub 2} and significant amounts of NO{sub x}. The process uses dual fluid rather than rotary atomizers. Improved ESP performance via gas conditioning from the increased water vapor content, and lower temperatures. Supplemental conditioning with SO{sub 3} is not believed necessary for satisfactory removal of particulate matter. The waste product is composed of magnesium and calcium sulfite and sulfate, with some excess lime. This product mixed with fly ash is self-stabilizing because of the excess lime values, and thus tends to retain heavy metals in insoluble forms within the fly ash.

In-Home Performance of Exempt Pellet Stoves in Medford, Oregon.

Description: Pellet stoves that are considered exempt'' operate at an air-to-fuel ratio in excess of 35:1. They therefore qualify for exemption from the emissions certification process. A primary goal of this project was to determine how a sample of such stoves, operated in homes, would perform compared to their certified cousins,'' which were evaluated the previous year. In-home performance data documenting emissions from exempt stoves and net delivered efficiencies was particularly desired. This project evaluated six pellet stoves representing three major brands in Medford, Oregon. There were three Breckwell model P24FS, one Horizon Eclipse, one Horizon Destiny, and one Earth Stove TP40. The stoves were monitored for four week-long intervals in January and February 1991, for a total of 24 tests. Evaluations were conducted for particulate, CO (carbon monoxide) and PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon) emissions and net efficiency. Monitoring was conducted using the AWES (automated woodstove emissions sampler) sampling system. A new data logger, developed for this project, was used to control the AWES and record real time data. 22 refs., 17 figs., 6 tabs.
