Report on process design studies of a tritium recovery process using dual temperature exchange with metal hydrides

Description: Studies were made of the process characteristics of a plant to decontaminate tritiated water using dual temperature exchange with VH/sub 2/. Feed to the plant consists of 300 kg/day on water containing 1 Ci/kg of tritium. A reference design was developed based on a decontamination factor of 10/sup 2/ and 10 kg/day of enriched product. This design requires a total of 48 ideal separation stages, 22 stages in the enriching section and 26 stages in the stripping section. Only low grade heat is required for the heating cycle and a relatively small (12 ton) ice machine is required for the cooling cycle. A total plant inventory of approximately 10 tons VH/sub 2/ is required. A mechanical design of the dual temperature stage complete with all heat transfer surfaces and flow diverters was devised and modeled. Since the process involves periodic swings in temperature between 0 and 60/sup 0/C, a substantial portion of the operation is expected to be in unsteady state transition from one state to another. A two-step experimental program has been presented: the first step consists of a single stage unit, i.e., one hot bed and one cold bed operating in a simple closed loop. The second stage in the experimental program would consist of five stages operating as a small cascade. (DLC)

3(omega) Power Balance Procedure on the NIF

Description: This document defines the detailed NIF full system shot procedure to obtain 8% power balance as specified by the SDR002 3.2.1.04. Because the 48 quads of the NIF will be set up over a period of five years, obtaining power balance will naturally be accomplished in two steps. First, as each quad is brought online, the four laser beams within each quad will be tuned by setting the PABTS splitter ratios so that each beam will give the same laser power on target during low energy square pulse shots. During the quad activation period all of the technical tools and procedures will be developed that are needed for attaining full laser power balance. After the initial settings of the 48 PABTS, if no other tuning is done the overall NIF power balance is expected to be about <15%. In the second step, an iteration procedure with approximately 18 full laser system shots will be needed to obtain 8% power balance by tuning out the remaining systematic differences among the quads to an acceptable small difference of 2% rms (at 3{omega}). This rms difference is smaller than the expected variation of the injection energy or the amplifier gain, and is also of the same order as the laser energy diagnostic accuracy. Therefore, 8% power balance will require a number of precision measurements that will need accurate calibrations combined with a laser performance model that accounts and corrects for variations of the injection energy and the amplifier gain. This document is intended to specify the procedure and the flow-down of requirements from the system design requirement of 8% power balance. It is further intended to help guide the laser shot planning, the laser controls, and the laser performance operations model groups. It should provide input relevant to power balance tuning for the …

Improving development planning in a natural gas storage field through simulation-optimization uncertainty analyses

Description: This is the second of two papers describing the application of simulation-optimization methods to a gas storage field development planning problem. The first paper began by giving a detailed description of the field and earlier efforts to model the effects of selected field development options on the field's productivity. It then outlined the basic steps required to apply a combination of artificial neural networks (ANNs) and the genetic algorithm (GA) to explore a much larger universe of field development planning options. Familiarity with the contents of the first paper is a prerequisite for understanding the material presented in this second paper. The optimized solutions to the planning problem presented in the first paper were based on a deterministic, ''best guess'' view of the field's reservoir properties. However, practical field development planning dictates that at least some of the uncertainties associated with these properties be taken into account. This second paper describes procedures and presents results showing how the ANN-GA approach to optimization can be extended to accommodate three sources of uncertainty pertinent to the field being studied: (1) Alternative hypotheses regarding the permeabilities in a key region of the field; (2) Uncertainty regarding the likely success of remediating existing wells; (3) Risks associated with siting new wells in relatively unknown regions of the field. The first two sources involve physical properties (permeabilities and skin factors, respectively) that are embedded in the simulation of the reservoir response and, therefore, require substantial changes to the knowledge base of simulations. The third source of uncertainty is examined simply by making changes to the objective functions driving the optimization. To streamline the presentation of results, only one of the two injection/withdrawal scenarios described in the first paper is included here, namely the 30-day peak service at the 2.5 Bcf baseload.

Final report summary of LDRD 02-LW-022''Quantum Vibrations in Molecules: A New Frontier in Computational Chemistry''

Description: With the trend towards needing information about chemistry at conditions significantly different from 298K and 1 atm., methods need to be developed to generate and interpret this data. This demand for information about chemistry at extreme conditions comes from many fields. The study of atmospheric chemistry requires knowledge of unusual species that are formed when molecules are exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Studying of energetic materials requires knowledge of the thermochemical and structural properties of a myriad of chemical species under a wide range of temperatures. Basic scientific understanding of the very nature of a chemical bond requires detailed information. Studying these problems computationally requires multiple capabilities. The methodology used must provide both high accuracy and computational efficiency. Studying extreme chemistry also suffers from all the challenges of studying chemistry under non-extreme conditions. Therefore, either a new method must be developed or an old method must be applied in an innovative way. The method we have chosen to use is path integral Monte Carlo (PIMC) for the nuclear degrees of freedom and ab initio electronic structure methods for the electronic degrees of freedom. PIMC and ab initio electronic structure are methods of treating the quantum nature of particles. These methods have been chosen, because an accurate treatment requires treating both the electrons and the nuclei as quantum particles. We developed new ''projected'' methods that reduce the computational demands. These methods along with PIMC in general are described in two Journal of Chemical Physics articles (UCRL-JC-144960 and UCRL-JC-147423). This methodology was implemented into a PIMC code developed as part of this LDRD. The code was parallelized in order to utilize the computational resources of LLNL.

Boiling limits

Description: Uncontrolled boiling of the water in a process tube might result in serious damage to a pile. Consequently, it is desirable to maintain header pressure generally sufficient to sweep out any steam which might be formed. Since the header pressure required to remove the steam depends upon the power output of the tube, the power level of a tube or pile is limited by the pressure available. In the past, tube power limitations have been specified and interpretations thereof. Recently a through study, both theoratical and experimental, has been made to determine the validity of these limitations. The purpose of this report is to present the results of the study must make recommendations for future operations. The limits presented herein are based on tube power levels.

Final vegetative cover for closed waste sites. Revision 1

Description: Low-level, hazardous, and mixed waste disposal sites normally require some form of plant material to prevent erosion of the final closure cap. Waste disposal sites are closed and capped in a complex scientific manner to minimize water infiltration and percolation into and through the waste material. Turf type grasses are currently being used as an interim vegetative cover for most sites. This coverage allows for required monitoring of the closure cap for settlement and maintenance activities. The purpose of this five year study was to evaluate plant materials for use on wastes sites after the post-closure care period that are quickly and easily established and economically maintained, retard water infiltration, provide maximum year-round evapotranspiration, are ecologically acceptable and do not harm the closure cap. The results of the study suggest that two species of bamboo (Phyllostachys (P.) bissetii and P. rubromarginata) can be utilized to provide long lived, low maintenance, climax vegetation for the waste sites after surveillance and maintenance requirements have ceased.

Combustion Research Program: Flame studies, laser diagnostics, and chemical kinetics. Progress report, 15 July 1987--3 December 1990

Description: We have made a detailed study of the care that must be taken to correctly measure OH radical concentrations in flames. A large part of these studies has concerned collisional quenching of hydride radical species (OH, NH, and NH{sub 2}), in particular the dependence upon rotational level and collision velocity (temperature). The results on OH and NH have shown unique and interesting behavior from the viewpoint of fundamental molecular dynamics, pointing to quenching often governed by collisions on an anisotropic, attractive surface, whereas NH{sub 2} quenching appears to depend on state-mixing considerations, not dynamic control. This state-specific behavior of these small, theoretically tractable hydrides has direct ramifications for quantitative flame diagnostics. Our other effort in the diagnostic area has been repeated but unsuccessful searches for laser induced fluorescence in the vinyl radical.

Enhancing the use of coals by gas reburning-sorbent injection. Quarterly report No. 21, October 1--December 31, 1992

Description: The objective of this project is to evaluate and demonstrate a cost effective emission control technology for acid rain precursors, oxides of nitrogen (NO{sub x}) and sulfur (SO{sub x}) on two coal fired utility boilers in Illinois. The units selected are representative of pre-NSPS design practices: tangential and cyclone fired. The specific objectives are to demonstrate reductions of 60 percent in NO{sub x} and 50 percent in SO{sub x} emissions, by a combination of two developed technologies, gas reburning (GR) and sorbent injection (SI). With GR, about 80--85 percent of the coal fuel is fired in the primary combustion zone. The balance of the fuel is added downstream as natural gas to create a slightly fuel rich environment in which NO{sub x} is converted to N{sub 2}. The combustion process is completed by overfire air addition. SO{sub x} emissions are reduced by injecting dry sorbents (usually calcium based) into the upper furnace. The sorbents trap SO{sub x} as solid sulfates that are collected in the particulate control device. This project is conducted in three phases at each site: (1) Design and Permitting, (2) Construction and Startup, and (3) Operation, Data Collection, Reporting and Disposition: Technology transfer to industry is accomplished through the formation of an industry panel. In phase AIII at Hennepin - Testing, Data Collection, Reporting and Disposition - Gas Reburning runs were made that indicate as high as 77% reduction in NO{sub x} emission using about 18% gas. Gas Reburning - Sorbent Injection test results indicated as high as 62% reduction in SO{sub 2}. These results are significantly higher than the project emission reduction goals of 60% NO{sub x} and 50% SO{sub 2} and provide a wide safety margin for maintaining the 60% and 50% emission reductions during long term routine testing. A year of long term testing …

A new constant monitor for ruthenium and iodine in stack gases. Status report

Description: Present methods for monitoring Ru{sup 103}, Ru{sup 106}, and I{sup 131} in stack gases involve sampling by filtration and scrubbing and analysis by chemical separation and counting or by gamma spectrometry. Filtered samples, which are ordinarily collected over a complete day, are analyzed for total ruthenium and iodine by gamma spectrometry and for the individual isotopes by chemical separation and counting. The present scrubber monitors the sampler gas for total activity. As an aid to Radiological Sciences evaluation of stack gas hazards and to operations control of radioactive gas emission, Methods and Instrument Development collaborated on the planning of a continuous monitoring system. This memorandum has the purpose of outlining the plan, reviewing progress since conception in October, 1953, and reporting work still to be done.

Limits for the new DWPF melter off-gas jumper I.D.

Description: In order to minimize solids deposition in the off-gas line between the primary film cooler and the quencher, Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) recommended earlier that a new DWPF melter off-gas jumper be built which would increase the off-gas velocity from less than 40 ft/s under the original design to at least 55 ft/s, excluding the melter air inleakage. Two design changes proposed for the new jumper were: (1) relocation of the entry point for the melter pressure control air from the current position near the quencher to near the film cooler exit, and (2) reduction of the inside diameter of the jumper from 8.33 to 7.156 inches. The objective of this study was to confirm the, optimum inside diameter (I.D.) proposed earlier and determine the upper and lower limits for the optimum, I.D. to initiate the actual design process. Based on more conservative bases for optimization used in this study, it was determined that the design limits for the new jumper I.D. is 7.15 {le} I.D. {le} 7.25 inches.
