A PROPOSAL FOR A GENERALIZED CARD KEY PUNCH

Description: A key punch is discussed which would be useful in any automatic coding system requiring the initial input to be made via cards with 12 rows such as the standard IBM card. The proposed key punch consists of a keyboard connected to a punch and a electric typewriter so that if a character is struck, it is both punched in a single card column and typed on a sheet of paper. Each character key contains three characters which may be used in superscript, subscript, or main line position. (M.H.R.)

Central Automatic Data Processing System

Description: A series of papers describing a system that will automatically record as many as 300 pressures, 200 voltages, and 24 frequencies in as little as 30 seconds to an accuracy of 0.15 percent or better of full-scale range. The information is able to be used in any high-speed, general-purpose digital computer. The computer will accept the encoded data produced by the recording system and automatically calibrates it, takes averages, forms ratios, and does terminal calculations such as mass flow, momentum, distortion numbers, drag coefficients, thrust, specific fuel consumption, and efficiency.

MAGNETIC RECORDER FOR NUCLEAR PULSE APPLICATION. Covering Period: August 6, 1959 to October 5, 1959

Description: Direct recording of nuclear pulse height data on magnetic tape is being investigated. The characteristics of various brands of commercial tape are being investigated and a waveform analysis is being performed in an attempt to determine the most favorable frequency range for available tapes. Use of the magnetic modulator head is being investigated to minimize variations due to short term tape speed variations. (W.L.H.)

ART-04--A MODIFICATION OF THE ART PROGRAM FOR THE TREATMENT OF REACTOR THERMAL TRANSIENTS ON THE IBM-704

Description: Several recent modifications of the ART program for the study of the behavior of a nuclear reactor during various thermal transients are described. The program requires a 32,000-word IBM-704 computer with six tape units. The major modifications are provision for a slip flow model and for void reactivity contribution. (auth)

Noise Reduction with Microphone Arrays for Speaker Identification

Description: Reducing acoustic noise in audio recordings is an ongoing problem that plagues many applications. This noise is hard to reduce because of interfering sources and non-stationary behavior of the overall background noise. Many single channel noise reduction algorithms exist but are limited in that the more the noise is reduced; the more the signal of interest is distorted due to the fact that the signal and noise overlap in frequency. Specifically acoustic background noise causes problems in the area of speaker identification. Recording a speaker in the presence of acoustic noise ultimately limits the performance and confidence of speaker identification algorithms. In situations where it is impossible to control the environment where the speech sample is taken, noise reduction filtering algorithms need to be developed to clean the recorded speech of background noise. Because single channel noise reduction algorithms would distort the speech signal, the overall challenge of this project was to see if spatial information provided by microphone arrays could be exploited to aid in speaker identification. The goals are: (1) Test the feasibility of using microphone arrays to reduce background noise in speech recordings; (2) Characterize and compare different multichannel noise reduction algorithms; (3) Provide recommendations for using these multichannel algorithms; and (4) Ultimately answer the question - Can the use of microphone arrays aid in speaker identification?

ARMF II REGULATING ROD READOUT AND SHIM ROD DRIVE AND POSITION DISPLAY

Description: A description of the digital readout and drive portion of the Advanced Reactivity Measurement Facility II is presented along with the philosophy used in selecting the system block diagram and components, accuracy considerations, and a preliminary evaluation of performance and usability. The presentation discourages duplicating of the equipment; advantage should be taken of the opportunity to improve upon it. To this end guideposts are provided as well as a documentation of those aspects of the design that are considered worthy of duplication. (auth)

Particle velocity measurements of the reaction zone in nitromethane

Description: The detonation reaction-zone length in neat, deuterated, and chemically sensitized nitromethane (NM) has been measured by using several different laser-based velocity interferometry systems. The experiments involved measuring the particle velocity history at a NM/PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) window interface during the time a detonation in the NM interacted with the interface. Initially, Fabry-Perot interferometry was used, but, because of low time resolution (>5 ns), several different configurations of VISAR interferometry were subsequently used. Early work was done with VISARs with a time resolution of about 3 ns. By making changes to the recording system, we were able to improve this to {approx}1 ns. Profiles measured at the NM/PMMA interface agree with the ZND theory, in that a spike ({approx}2.45 mm/{micro}s) is measured that is consistent with an extrapolated reactant NM Hugoniot matched to the PMMA window. The spike is rather sharp, followed by a rapid drop in particle velocity over a time of 5 to 10 ns; this is evidence of early fast reactions. Over about 50 ns, a much slower particle velocity decrease occurs to the assumed CJ condition - indicating a total reaction zone length of {approx}300 {micro}m. When the NM is chemically changed, such as replacing the hydrogen atoms with deuterium or chemically sensitizing with a base, some changes are observed in the early part of the reaction zone.

A VERSATILE RECORDING POTENTIOMETER

Description: ABS>A recording potentiometer was modified to provide a versatile instrument that can be applied to a variety of problems without time-consuming changes. Ranges may be selected in six spans, from 0.5 to 100 mv. No adjustments of amplifier gain are required when switching from one range to another. Zero suppression is continuously variable over a plus or minus 100 mv range by means of coarse and vernier controls. Cold junction compensation is provided for four standard thermocouples, and chart speeds from 1/2 to 16 im- ./ hr may be selected at will. (auth)

MIST--BUBBLE CHAMBER DATA REDUCTION PROGRAM

Description: MIST is an IBM 7090 program prepared at Brookhaven National Laboratory as part of a cooperative effort for bubble chamber data processing. The program reads the prepared data and outputs it on magnetic tape in a suitable format for input to the Haze-Fog-Cloudy-Fair Programs used with a flying spot digitizer. MIST deletes erroneous data, edits, sequences, and supplies additional physical data not digitized. MIST also prepares detailed summaries and statistics for the events processed and checks digitizer operation. (H.G.G.)

The development of a multiplexing subsystem for use within the reactor pressure vessel is being carried out. The most promising methods of multiplexing investigated are electromechanical commutation and electroric frequency division. (M.C.G.)

AUTOMATIC PROCESSING SYSTEM FOR FILM BADGES

Description: A semiautomatic film badge system was developed to process dosimeter film faster and more reliably than the previously used manual method. The films are automatically loaded and unloaded from the badges and marked with identifying numbers, manually developed, and automatically read. The resultant information is punched into IBM cards.
