Improvement of storage, handling, and transportability of fine coal. Quarterly technical progress report No. 2, April 1, 1994--June 30, 1994

Description: Fine coal production is on the rise in the US, and it will continue to increase as underground mining companies invest in more productive equipment. This report describes a process for wetting of coal fines termed the Mulled Coal Process. No thermal drying is involved.

The evolution of consciousness

Description: It is argued that the principles of classical physics are inimical to the development of an adequate science of consciousness. The problem is that insofar as the classical principles are valid consciousness can have no effect on the behavior, and hence on the survival prospects, of the organisms in which it inheres. Thus within the classical framework it is not possible to explain in natural terms the development of consciousness to the high-level form found in human beings. In quantum theory, on the other hand, consciousness can be dynamically efficacious: quantum theory does allow consciousness to influence behavior, and thence to evolve in accordance with the principles of natural selection. However, this evolutionary requirement places important constraints upon the details of the formulation of the quantum dynamical principles.

Relativistic Klystron Two-Beam Accelerator studies at the RTA test facility

Description: A prototype rf power source based on the Relativistic Klystron Two- Beam Accelerator (RK-TBA) concept is being constructed at LBNL to study physics, engineering, and costing issues. The prototype, called RTA, is described and compared to a full scale design appropriate for driving the Next Linear Collider. Specific details of the induction core test and pulsed power system are presented. Details of the 1-MeV, 1.2-kA induction gun currently under construction are described.

Computer modeling in the design and evaluation of electric and hybrid vehicles

Description: This demonstration project uses modern simulation techniques to illustrate the important technologies and design variables that an auto-designer would consider in production a high efficiency, low emissions vehicle. Simulation and modeling techniques use the idea of capturing the relationships between real components of the systems with mathematical equations. These equations are then solved on a computer to simulate the behavior or performance of the system under various conditions. In the current demonstration project, we focus on many variations of a hydrogen-powered vehicle.

Improvement of storage, handling and transportability of fine coal. Quarterly technical progress report No. 3, July 1, 1994--September 30, 1994

Description: The Mulled Coal process was developed as a means of overcoming the adverse handling characteristics of wet fine coal without thermal drying. The process involves the addition of a low cost, harmless reagent to wet fine coal using off-the-shelf mixing equipment. The objectives of this project are to demonstrate that: The Mulled Coal process, which has been proven to work on a wide range of wet fine coals at bench scale, will work equally well on a continuous basis, producing consistent quality at a convincing rate of production in a commercial coal preparation plant. The wet product from a fine coal cleaning circuit can be converted to a solid fuel form for ease of handling and cost savings in storage and rail car transportation. A wet fine coal product thus converted to a solid fuel form, can be stored, shipped, and burned with conventional fuel handling, transportation, and combustion systems. During this third quarter of the contract period, activities were underway under Tasks 2 and 3. Sufficient characterization of the feedstock coal options at the Chetopa Plant was conducted and mulling characteristics determined to enable a decision to be made regarding the feedstock selection. It was decided that the froth concentrate will be the feedstock wet fine coal used for the project. On that basis, activities in the areas of design and procurement were initiated.

Scaling the TBNLC collider design to higher frequencies

Description: The TBNLC collider design uses Relativistic Klystron Two-Beam Accelerator (RK-TBA) units as the rf power source for a NLC-type linac at 11.4 GHz. In this paper we report on a simple analysis using RK-TBA units as a rf power source for a CLIC-type linac at 30 GHz. The desired rf macropulse duration is less than 50 ns with a repetition rate of 600 Hz. We propose to use magnetic pulse compression units driving ferrite core induction cells for this system. Many elements of the TBNLC remain the same for a collider design at this higher frequency.
