Internet: An Overview of Key Technology Policy Issues Affecting Its Use and Growth

Description: The continued growth of the Internet for personal, government, and business purposes may be affected by a number of technology policy issues being debated by Congress. Among them are access to and regulation of broadband (high-speed) Internet services, computer and Internet security, Internet privacy, the impact of “spam,” concerns about what children may encounter (such as pornography) when using the Internet, management of the Internet Domain Name System, and government information technology management. This report provides overviews of those issues, plus appendices providing a list of pending legislation, a list of acronyms, a discussion of legislation passed in earlier Congresses, and a list of other CRS reports that provide more detail on these and related topics.

Internet: An Overview of Key Technology Policy Issues Affecting Its Use and Growth

Description: The Internet touches almost every aspect of modern life. The extend to which use of the Internet continues to grow, however, may be affected by a number of technology policy issues being debated in Congress. First is the availability of high speed -- or "broadband" -- Internet access. Next are a range of issues that reflect challenges faced by those who do use the Internet, such as security, privacy, unsolicited commercial electronic mail ("spam"), protecting children from unsuitable material, and computer security, including the vulnerability of the national infrastructure. Other issues include the governance of the Internet's domain name system. The evolving role of the Internet in the political economy of the United States also continues to attract congressional attention.

A PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF THE EBWR AT VARIOUS POWER LEVELS

Description: An attempt was made to predict the operating performance of EBWR at various power levels, and the results are compared with the experimental data obtained in raising the EBWR to a power of 100 Mw. An IBM-704 code, RECHOP, was used to calculate the recirculating velocity; experimental subcooling data were fed into RECHOP at high power levels. It is concluded that the prediction shows the general trend of the major parameters but requires further work for producing accurate answers. (D.L.C.)

SPERT I LOW-ENRICHMENT OXIDE CORE DESTRUCTIVE TEST PROGRAM SAFETY ANALYSIS REPORT

Description: The objectives of an oxide core destructive test program at the Spert I reactor facility are reviewed. The proposed experimental program of destructive tests on a low-enriched oxide core, the experimental results of nondestructive transient tests that were obtained on the test core and the extrapolation of these results to the destructive case, an analysis of the hazards involved in performing such destructive tests, and a detailed description of the reactor facility and environmental conditions are presented. The supervision and control of personnel during and after each destructive test, and of the plans for reentry, cleanup, and restoration of the facility are discussed. The water- moderated core that will be used for these experiments is mounted in the Spert I open-type reactor vessel, which has no provision for pressurization or forced coolant flow. The core is comprised of approximately 600 4%-enriched UO/sub 2/ fuel rods clad with stainless steel, and four blade-type, gang-operated control rods for reactor control. Reactor transients are initiated at ambient temperature by step-insertions of reactivity, using for this purpose a special control rod that can be quickly ejected from the core. On the basis of the results obtained from previous nondestructivelkinetic tests, an analysis was made to determine the nature of the results to be expected for an assumed 1.8- sec- period test in which tetal core destruction occurs. An evaluation of hazards involved in conducting the 1.8-msec test, based on conservative assumptions regarding fission product release and weather conditions, indicated that with the procedural controls normally exercised in the conduct of any transient test at Spert and the special controls to be in effect during the destructive test series, no significant hazard to personnel or to the general public will be incurred.

XENON TRANSIENT TESTS. CORE I, SEED 2, EFPH 1565.4. Section 1. Test Results T-612081

Description: Tests were carried out to determine if there was sufficient excess reactivity present in the core to override a pesk xenon transient and to obtain data for rod worth calculations. Upon completion of 1565.4 EFPH of plant operation of Core I, Seed 2, there was sufficient reactivity to override the peak xenon transient imposed by a rapid shutdown from an average reactor power level of 102.65%. The override occurred 8 hr and 46 min after shutdown with Group I control rods withdrawn to 69 in. and Group II control rods controlling, withdrawn to 44.75 in. Rod Group III and Group IV were fully inserted. (M.C.G.)

The Technology of Marble Quarrying

Description: From Preface: "The aim of this bulletin is to present to the marble workers of the United States a concise statement of the most efficient and economical methods now in use for producing and preparing marble. The observations outlined refer chiefly to the methods employed in the quarrying of marble and the conditions that affect successful operation; the structure of marble and its relation to quarry processes; waste through rock imperfections and inefficient quarry methods; and means of eliminating such waste or utilizing it if elimination is impossible."
