TATB dry amination fine particle process. Period covered: July--September 1977

Description: A process was developed on the pilot plant scale which can be used to reproduce fine particle TATB by dry amination. A series of 10 batches, with each batch yielding from 15 to 20 kg was produced to evaluate the process. The total chlorine content of the batches was generally about 0.5 percent but one of the batches had a total chlorine content higher than expected (1.05 percent).

Photovoltaic solar panel resistance to simulated hail. Low-Cost Solar Array Project

Description: As part of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Low-Cost Solar Array Project, test methods have been evaluated and procedures developed for testing photovoltaic flat-plate solar cell modules for resistance to impact by hailstones. Testing has included the use of simulated hailstones (frozen ice spheres projected at terminal velocity), steel balls, and other projectile types applied with three loading methods: pneumatic gun, gravity drop, and static loading. Results are presented that compare the adv… more

LSSA Project. Project quarterly report No. 4, January--March 1977

Description: A preliminary version of a workbook for SAMICS, a uniform costing methodology for manufacturing processes, was published. Continued experimentation with the fluidized bed reactor for production of Si by Zn reduction of SiCl/sub 4/ showed that 78 percent of theoretical conversion efficiency from SiCl/sub 4/ to Si was attainable using a hemispherical bed support, versus 68 percent when using the concise bed support. The EFG process is now producing 2-inch wide ribbon at 2 to 3 inches per minute; … more

Cementing of geothermal wells. Progress report No. 4, January--March 1977

Description: A coordinated program for the development of improved cements specifically designed for geothermal well applications was continued. Polymer cements (PC) have been identified as promising well cementing materials. Tests indicate that at temperatures above 218/sup 0/C (425/sup 0/C) only PC materials containing mixtures of silica and portland cement are durable to brine and steam. Differential thermal analysis (DTA) studies are underway to determine the reason. Tests are also being conducted on tw… more
