Design of a Tunable High-Q Superconducting Notch Filter

Description: The design of a tunable high-Q superconducting notch filter is presented. The filter is designed to be manufactured from high Tc superconductors (Nb3S, Nb3Ge) made by high-rate magnetron sputtering on sapphire substrates. The geometry of the various elements, holder materials for the cryostat, studies relating to the preparation of suitable high Tc materials, and the photo-etching procedures for the filter elements are discussed.

FX2-TH : A Two-Dimensional Nuclear Reactor Kinetics Code with Thermal-Hydraulic Feedback

Description: FX2-TH is a two-dimensional, time-dependent nuclear reactor kinetics program with thermal and hydraulic feedback. The neutronics model used is multi-group neutron diffusion theory. The following geometry options are available: x, r, x-y, r-z, theta-r, and triangular. FX2-TH contains two basic thermal and hydraulic models: a simple adiabatic fuel temperature calculation, and a more detailed model consisting of an explicit representation of a fuel pin, gap, clad, and coolant. FX2-TH allows feedba… more

Market Analysis of Geothermal Energy for California and Hawaii

Description: This is one of the earlier market analyses for geothermal electric power and direct heat. The market for geothermal power was found to be large enough to absorb anticipated developments in California. For direct use, geothermal resources and urban markets in CA and HI are not well collocated.

SEVENTH DOE WORKSHOP ON PERSONNEL NEUTRON DOSIMETRY

Description: This workshop was the seventh of a series and was held on October 23-24. 1978, at the Central Electricity Generating Board, HQ, London, England. Typically~ attendees at the Workshop were concerned with one of three activities: studying and refining existing techniques in an attempt to quantify already-known parameters with greater precision, looking for ways to apply existing neutron dosirr:etry techniques to a specific local problem, identifying the needs and weaknesses of existing systems, wi… more

Role of Neurotransmitters and Protein Synthesis in Short- and Long-Term Memory

Description: Anisomycin is an effective inhibitor of cerebral protein synthesis in mice and is also an effective amnestic agent for both passive and active behavioral tasks. From use of anisomycin in combination with a variety of stimulant and depressant drugs, we conclude that the level of arousal following acquisition plays an important role in determining the duration and the rate of the biosynthetic phase of memory formation. While we have interpreted the experiments with anisomycin as evidence for an e… more

NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF VORTEX BREAKDOWN

Description: Vortex breakdown is simulated by a three dimensional Lagrangian method using vortex filaments. The filaments are approximated by vortex elements and their velocity is computed by a Biot-Savart type law of interaction. The numerical calculations show the development of an axisymmetric bubble with a recirculation zone and resemble in many respects the results obtained in the physical experiments on vortex breakdown.

LONG TERM FILE MIGRATION - PART II: FILE REPLACEMENT ALGORITHMS

Description: The steady increase in the power and complexity of modern computer systems has encouraged the implementation of automatic file migration systems which move files dynamically between mass storage devices and disk in response to user reference patterns. Using information describing thirteen months of text editor data set file references, (analyzed in detail in the first part of this paper), they develop and evaluation algorithms for the selection of files to be moved from disk to mass storage.

Monroe, Utah, Hydrothermal System: Results from Drilling of Test Wells MC1 and MC2

Description: Following detailed geological (Parry et al., 1976; Miller, 1976) and geophysical (Mase, Chapman, and Ward, 1978; Kilty, Mase, and Chapman, 1978) studies of the Monroe, Utah hydrothermal system, a program of drilling two intermediate depth test wells was undertaken. The objectives of the test well drilling were three-fold: (1) to obtain structural information bearing on the poorly known dip of the Sevier Fault, (2) to obtain temperature information below the shallow depths (approximately 300 ft.… more

High-speed Photography of Pyrotechnic Materials and Components with a Coppper Vapor Laser

Description: The evaluation of the properties of energetic materials, such as burn rate and ignition energy, is of primary importance in understanding their reactions and the functioning of devices containing them. One method for recording such information is high-speed photography at rates of up to 20,000 images per second. When a copper vapor lazer is synchronized with the camera, laser-illuminated images can be recorded that detail the performance of a material or component in a manner never before possi… more
