Acoustic agglomeration of power plant fly ash. Final report

Description: The work has shown that acoustic agglomeration at practical acoustic intensities and frequencies is technically and most likely economically viable. The following studies were performed with the listed results: The physics of acoustic agglomeration is complex particularly at the needed high acoustic intensities in the range of 150 to 160 dB and frequencies in the 2500 Hz range. The analytical model which we developed, although not including nonlinear acoustic efforts, agreed with the trends obs… more

Description: Spectral analysis of aeromagnetic data collected over north-central California during the summer of 1980 aided in determining magnetic-source bottom depths beneath the survey area. Five regions of shallow magnetic source bottom depths were detected: (1) Secret Spring Mountain and National Lava Beds Monument area; (2) the Mount Shasta area; (3) the Eddys Mountain area; (4) the Big Valley Mountains area; and (5) an area northeast of Lassen Peak. Except for the Eddys Mountain area, all regions exh… more

Description: Aeromagnetic measurements made along flightlines oriented east-west and spaced at 1.6-km intervals and along lines oriented north-south and spaced at 8-km intervals, over approximately 30,000 square km of northern California, exhibit crossing errors of less than 5 nanoTeslas. The measurements show short-wavelength magnetic anomalies associated with near-surface volcanics over and east of Lassen Peak and over and north of Mt. Shasta and the Medicine Lake Highlands, longer wavelength anomalies ov… more

Agricultural production in the United States by county: a compilation of information from the 1974 census of agriculture for use in terrestrial food-chain transport and assessment models

Description: Terrestrial food-chain models that simulate the transport of environmentally released radionuclides incorporate parameters describing agricultural production and practice. Often a single set of default parameters, such as that listed in USNRC Regulatory Guide 1.109, is used in lieu of site-specific information. However, the geographical diversity of agricultural practice in the United States suggests the limitations of a single set of default parameters for assessment models. This report docume… more

Air-quality-model update

Description: The Livermore Regional Air Quality Model (LIRAQ) has been updated and improved. This report describes the changes that have been made in chemistry, species treatment, and boundary conditions. The results of smog chamber simulations that were used to verify the chemistry as well as simulations of the entire air quality model for two prototype days in the Bay Area are reported. The results for the prototype day simulations are preliminary due to the need for improvement in meteorology fields, but… more

Analysis of a system for the measurement of impact loads

Description: A reinforced flat plate supported on load cell force transducers is proposed as a system for measuring the dynamic force of an impact test. The system is mathematically modeled as a beam on elastic supports loaded at its midspan by a half sine pulse. Analytical expressions are derived for the force vs time in the load cells and are shown to be functions of three parameters, the ratio of the load duration to the fundamental frequency of the system, the ratio of support stiffness to beam flexural… more

Analysis of environmental issues related to small-scale hydroelectric development. VI. Dissolved oxygen concentrations below operating dams

Description: Results are presented of an effort aimed at determining whether or not water quality degradation, as exemplified by dissolved oxygen concentrations, is a potentially significant issue affecting small-scale hydropower development in the US. The approach was to pair operating hydroelectric sites of all sizes with dissolved oxygen measurements from nearby downstream US Geological Survey water quality stations (acquired from the WATSTORE data base). The USGS data were used to calculate probabilitie… more

Analysis of Flow Data from the MG-T/DOE AMOCO Fee No. 1 Well

Description: Analysis of buildup data from the Initial Flow Test indicates that the MG-T/DOE AMOCO Fee No. 1 Well penetrates a zone of relatively high permeability (approx. 162 md); this high permeability zone, however, extends to a radius of only about 200 ft from the well. The far field permeability (i.e., for r > 200 ft) appears to be rather low (approx. 11.9 md). (An alternate interpretation of the test data replaces the low permeability region beyond 200 ft with two intersecting faults with a graben an… more

Description: Experimental data for neutron-induced reactions on /sup 165/Ho and /sup 169/Tm have been theoretically analyzed in preparation for calculations on the unstable isotopes of Tm. A set of deformed optical model parameters was determined from measurements of s- and p-wave neutron strength functions, total cross sections, elastic angular distributions, and 16-MeV proton scattering to the /sup 165/Ho ground and first excited states. The parameters for the /sup 165/Ho and /sup 169/Tm nuclei were linke… more

Analysis of the alleged Kyshtym disaster

Description: The alleged Kyshtym disaster has been an intriguing intelligence puzzle for almost 25 years. Zhores Medvedev, a Soviet dissident, has written numerous journal articles as well as two books on the subject. He has argued that a vast contaminated area exists east of the city of Kyshtym in the southern Ural Mountains. Further, he has alleged that a nuclear waste disposal accident in 1957 to 1958 caused the contamination. The authors of this report are in partial disagreement with Medvedev's first a… more

Analysis procedure for americium in environmental samples

Description: Several methods for the analysis of /sup 241/Am in environmental samples were evaluated and a preferred method was selected. This method was modified and used to determine the /sup 241/Am content in sediments, biota, and water. The advantages and limitations of the method are discussed. The method is also suitable for /sup 244/Cm analysis.
