Baseline Gas Turbine Development Program. Twenty-Second Quarterly Progress Report

Description: Progress is reported for a program whose goals are to demonstrate an experimental upgraded gas turbine-powered automobile which meets the 1978 Federal Emissions Standards, has significantly improved fuel economy, and is competitive in performance, reliability, and potential manufacturing cost with the conventional piston engine-powered, compact-size American automobile. Activity during this twenty-second program quarter has continued to emphasize development towards correcting a power deficiency in the Upgraded Engine. Efforts are also being directed towards reducing fuel usage through improved heat recovery and towards improving the mechanical reliability and control of the engine.

Evaluation of selected chemical processes for production of low-cost silicon (Phase II). Silicon material task, Low-Cost Solar Array Project. Tenth quarterly progress report, January 1--March 31, 1978

Description: Progress from January 1 to March 31, 1978, is reported in design of the 50 MT/year experimental facility for the preparation of high-purity silicon by the zinc vapor reduction of silicon tetrachloride in a fluidized bed of seed particles to form a free-flowing granular product. The design of the experimental facility has been concluded and sent to JPL for evaluation. It is also being critiqued by an independent pilot plant design group at BCL. Detailed analyses of equipment and construction costs have led to an estimate of $1.5 million for construction of the facility in an available building at BCL. Although the design was frozen for purposes of cost estimation, some improvements have been made since, and others are contemplatd before it is necessary to freeze the design for construction. Representative flow sheets and related equipment drawings are shown.

Investigations of intermetallic alloy hydriding mechanisms. Annual progress report, July 1, 1977--April 30, 1978

Description: Measurements of hydridation of thin films are described. Film deposition by rf sputtering is discussed and studies of microstructure changes due to hydridation are presented. The influence of factors such as alloy composition, microstructural details, surface layers or contaminants and physical properties on hydriding characteristics such as the kinetics of hydrogen absorption and desorption, quantities absorbed, heats of hydriding and the effects of long-term absorption-desorption cycling were studied.
