A 0. 4 mm Interferometer System Using Dielectric Waveguide

Description: A 0.4 mm submillimeter-wave, phase-modulated polarimeter/interferometer is used for simultaneous time-dependent measurement of line-averaged electron density and poloidal field-induced Faraday rotation along chords of the plasma column in ISX-B tokamak. Heterodyna detection and hollow dielectric waveguide are utilized to achieve the high sensitivity required for the multichord equipment.

1-D hybrid code for FRM start-up

Description: A one-D hybrid has been developed to study the start-up of the FRM via neutral-beam injection. The code uses a multi-group numerical model originally developed by J. Willenberg to describe fusion product dynamics in a solenoidal plasma. Earlier we described such a model for use in determining self-consistent ion currents and magnetic fields in FRM start-up. However, consideration of electron dynamics during start-up indicate that the electron current will oppose the injected ion current and may… more

2. 6/sup 0/K refrigeration system for CBA magnet testing

Description: The superconducting magnets for the accelerator's rings will be cooled by a forced flow supercritical helium system from a central refrigeration plant. The design temperature for these magnets varies from 2.6 to 3.8/sup 0/K depending on a magnet's location in the ring. This paper describes the forced flow cooling system for testing a prototype magnet near 2.6/sup 0/K; this lowest temperature being of special interest to evaluate magnet quench protection. The test forced flow cooling system uses… more

2-D Eulerian hydrodynamics with fluid interfaces, self-gravity and rotation

Description: The purpose of this paper is to describe in detail the numerical approach we have developed over the past five years for solving 2-dimensional gas-dynamical problems in astrophysics involving inviscid compressible flow, self-gravitation, rotation, and fluid instabilities of the Rayleigh-Taylor and Kelvin-Helmholtz types. The computer code to be described has been applied most recently to modeling jets in radio galaxies (Norman et al. 1981, 1982) and is an outgrowth of a code developed for study… more

S = -2 dibaryons and hypernuclei

Description: Future prospects for the exploration of doubly strange hypernuclear systems are evaluated. Such systems may be produced via the double strangeness exchange reactions (K/sup -/,K/sup +/) or (K/sup -/,K/sup 0/) on nuclear targets. Theoretical estimates are given of the formation cross sections for Xi/sup -/ hypernuclear states via the one-step K/sup -/p ..-->.. K/sup +/Xi/sup -/ process, or discrete states of the ..lambda lambda.. hypernucleus in the two step reaction K/sup -/p ..-->.. ..pi../sup… more

3-D solution of flow in an infinite square array of circular tubes by using boundary-fitted coordinate system

Description: Heat transfer and fluid flow over circular tubes have wide applications in the design of heat exchangers and nuclear reactors. However, it is often difficult to accurately calculate the detailed velocity and temperature distributions of the flow because of the complex geometry involved in the analysis, and a lack of an appropriate coordinate system for the analysis. Boundary conditions on the surfaces of the tubes are often interpolated. This interpolation process introduces inaccuracy. To over… more

A = 4 0/sup +/ - 1/sup +/ binding-energy difference

Description: The A = 4 ..lambda..-hypernuclei provide a rich source of information about the s-wave properties of the fundamental hyperon-nucleon (YN) force as well as offer a unique opportunity to investigate the complications that arise in calculations of the properties of bound systems in which one baryon (here the ..lambda..) with a given isospin couples strongly to another (the ..sigma..) with a different isospin. The ..lambda../sup 4/H - ..lambda../sup 4/He isodoublet ground-state energies are not con… more

1982 engineering conference on reliability for the electrical power industry

Description: Emergency onsite ac power systems at nuclear power plants are a major concern in plant risk assessments because of the relatively large frequency of loss of offsite power and the dependence of most other safety systems on ac power. Detailed reviews of onsite ac power system designs and reviews of experience with diesel generators at US nuclear power plants form the basis of system reliability analyses that show significant improvements in reliability can be obtained at moderate cost for some pl… more

1D thermonuclear model for x-ray transients

Description: The thermonuclear evolution of a 1.41 M solar mass neutron star, with a radius of 14.3 km, accreting various mixtures of hydrogen, helium, and heavy elements at rates of 10/sup -11/ to 10/sup -10/ M solar mass/yr is examined, in conjunction with S.E. Woosley and T.A. Weaver, using a one-dimensional numerical model. We have ignored any effects due to general relativity or magnetic fields. Two cases shall be discussed. In both models, the accretion rate is such that the hydrogen shell burns to he… more

Absolutely calibrated soft-x-ray streak camera for laser-fusion applications

Description: The intensity output of a soft-x-ray streak camera was calibrated (SXRSC) in order to make absolute flux measurements of x rays emitted from laser-produced plasmas. The SXRSC developed at LLNL is used to time-resolve x-ray pulses to better than 20 ps. The SXRSC uses a Au photocathode on a thin carbon substrate which is sensitive to x rays from 100 eV to greater than 10 keV. Calibrations are done in the dynamic mode using a small laser-produced x-ray source. The SXRSC is calibrated by comparing … more

Acceleration of heavy ions to very high energies

Description: The current interest of physicists in the collisions of heavy ions closes an interesting circle in the technology of accelerator building. The first cyclic accelerator, built by R. Wideroe, was a linear accelerator designed to accelerate potassium ions. Subsequent to Wideroe's achievement, much of the art of accelerator construction has been devoted to creating energetic beams of electrons and protons. Now we find ourselves returning to the heavy ions, and Wideroe's linear accelerator structure… more

Accident analysis and DOE criteria

Description: In analyzing the radiological consequences of major accidents at DOE facilities one finds that many facilities fall so far below the limits of DOE Order 6430 that compliance is easily demonstrated by simple analysis. For those cases where the amount of radioactive material and the dispersive energy available are enough for accident consequences to approach the limits, the models and assumptions used become critical. In some cases the models themselves are the difference between meeting the crit… more

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

Acoustic disturbance at ionospheric heights caused by the MILL RACE explosion

Description: The principal objective of the Los Alamos National Laboratory in the MILL RACE experiment was to measure the over-head ionospheric response due to the MILL RACE explosion. Such a measurement enables one to test computer models designed to quantitatively predict ionospheric disturbances caused by known sources. The emphasis of the models has been directed at calculating effects on rf propagation associated with the predicted ionospheric disturbances. Consequently vertical incidence phase soundin… more
