Ultra-High Pressure Modeling and Experiments Review

Description: The RDHWT/MARIAH II energy addition, run time, and mass flow rate requirement simply large air and nitrogen fluid volumes at the highest practicable static enthalpy. The objective of the gas supply concept development is the satisfaction of ultra-high pressure (UHP), high temperature thermodynamic requirements in a facility with acceptable safety and economic risks. The primary challenges for the mechanical design are connecting multiple volumes at pressures greater than 1,400MPa and temperatur… more

Materials Reliability Program: Environmental Fatigue Testing of Type 304L Stainless Steel U-Bends in Simulated PWR Primary Water (MRP-137)

Description: Laboratory data generated in the past decade indicate a significant reduction in component fatigue life when reactor water environmental effects are experimentally simulated. However, these laboratory data have not been supported by nuclear power plant component operating experience. In recent comprehensive review of laboratory, component and structural test data performed through the EPRI Materials Reliability Program, flow rate was identified as a critical variable that was generally not cons… more

Laboratory experiments on dispersive transport across interfaces: The role of flow direction

Description: We present experimental evidence of asymmetrical dispersive transport of a conservative tracer across interfaces between different porous materials. Breakthrough curves are measured for tracer pulses that migrate in a steady state flow field through a column that contains adjacent segments of coarse and fine porous media. The breakthrough curves show significant differences in behavior, with tracers migrating from fine medium to coarse medium arriving significantly faster than those from coarse… more

Water-Level Monitoring Plan for the Hanford Groundwater Monitoring Project

Description: This document presents the water-level monitoring plan for the Hanford Groundwater Monitoring Project, conducted by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). Water-level monitoring of the groundwater system beneath the Hanford Site is performed to fulfill the requirements of various state and federal regulations, orders, and agreements. The primary objective of this monitoring is to determine groundwater flow rates and directions. To meet this and other objectives, water-levels are meas… more

Liquid metal Flow Meter - Final Report

Description: Measuring the flow of liquid metal presents serious challenges. Current commercially-available flow meters use ultrasonic, electromagnetic, and other technologies to measure flow, but are inadequate for liquid metal flow measurement because of the high temperatures required by most liquid metals. As a result of the reactivity and high temperatures of most liquid metals, corrosion and leakage become very serious safety concerns. The purpose of this project is to develop a flow meter for Lockheed… more

Measuring Rates of Outdoor Airflow Into HVAC Systems

Description: During the last few years, new technologies have been introduced for measuring the flow rates of outside air into HVAC systems. This document describes one particular technology for measuring these airflows, a system and a related protocol developed to evaluate this and similar measurement technologies under conditions without wind, and the results of our evaluations. We conclude that the measurement technology evaluated can provide a reasonably accurate measurement of OA flow rate over a broad… more

Quarterly Technical Progress Report

Description: Methane oxidative coupling experiments were conducted in a porous gamma alumina membrane reactor using Mn-W-Na/SiOz catalyst, and its performance was compared with a packed reactor. By varying the helium flow rate and keeping the temperature, methane flow rate, and oxygen flow rate constant, the membrane reactor gave 10% higher Cz yield and 30% higher C2 selectivity than the co-feed reactor operated at the same methane conversion. At similar C2 yield and C2 selectivity, the methane conversion o… more

Transcriptional Profiling Using the Flowthrough Genosensor

Description: A Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation (Contractor) and Gene Logic, Inc., (Participant) was carried out to evaluate the technical feasibility study of the application of the flowthrough genosensor for gene expression (transcriptional) profiling, over the current industry practice of using flat surface hybridization arrays to monitor the relative abundance of individual mRNA species in a cell. Various parameters, including sub… more

Short Term Climatological Wind Data as a Tool for Wind Forecasting

Description: Utilizing short-term climatological wind data can enhance wind speed and wind direction forecasts. An analysis of regional or tower-based wind rose summaries can be useful forecast guides especially when synoptic-scale pressure gradients are weak. Predictive data from multiple models can be plotted against short-term climatological wind data to assess deviations from expected norms and differences between forecast models. Site-specific comparisons between predicted data and observed climatologi… more

An Analysis of Wintertime Winds in Washington, D.C.

Description: This report consists of a description of the wintertime climatology of wind speed and wind direction around the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Meteorological data for this study were collected at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (Reagan National), Dulles International Airport (Dulles), and a set of surface meteorological stations that are located on a number of building tops around the National Mall. A five-year wintertime climatology of wind speed and wind direction measured at Rea… more

Methods of Measuring Lock-In Strength and their Application to the Case of Flow over a Cavity Locking into a Single Side Branch Resonator

Description: Lock-in is a non-linear interaction between a flow induced noise source and a resonator when their respective frequencies are near each other. Lock-in has been reported under many different labels and for many different applications. There is a need however for a consistent community wide method to measure the strength of lock-in so that data from different tests and different source/resonator combinations can be compared. This paper discusses three methods for measuring lock-in strength. The f… more

Dehumidification: Prediction of Condensate Flow Rate for Plate-Fin Tube Heat Exchangers Using the Latent j Factor

Description: Condensate flow rate is an important factor in designing dehumidifiers or evaporators. In this paper, the latentj fimtor is used to analyze the dehumidification performance of two plate-fin tube heat exchangers. This latent j factor, analogous to the total j factor, is a flmction of the mass transfa coefllcient, the volumetric air flow rate, and the Schmidt number. This latent j factor did predict condensate flow rate more directly and accurately than any other sensiblej factor method. The Iate… more

Gas Pipeline Pigability

Description: In-line inspection equipment is commonly used to examine a large portion of the long distance transmission pipeline system that transports natural gas from well gathering points to local distribution companies. A piece of equipment that is inserted into a pipeline and driven by product flow is called a ''pig''. Using this term as a base, a set of terms has evolved. Pigs that are equipped with sensors and data recording devices are called ''intelligent pigs''. Pipelines that cannot be inspected … more

FLOW ANALYSIS OF DIFFUSER-GETTER-DIFFUSER SYSTEMS

Description: Tritium clean-up systems typically deploy gas processing technologies between stages of palladium-silver (Pd/Ag) diffusers/permeators. The number of diffusers positioned before and after a gas clean-up process to obtain optimal system performance will vary with feed gas inert composition. A simple method to analyze optimal diffuser configuration is presented. The method assumes equilibrium across the Pd/Ag tubes and system flows are limited by diffuser vacuum pump speeds preceding or following … more

Simultaneous Production of High-Purity Hydrogen and Sequestration-Ready CO2 from Syngas: Computer Model Development

Description: Two computer modules are being constructed to model a new process for syngas upgrading and purification. The first module simulates the physical processes occurring in a fluid bed reactor where both gas and solid compositions and flow rates vary significantly along the axis of the reactor. The second module simulates the chemistry and mass transfer between the gas and solid phases. Primitive forms of the two modules have been developed and exercised over a range of performance parameters. These… more
