S-1 project. Volume I. Architecture. 1979 annual report

Description: The US Navy is one of the world's largest users of digital computing equipment having a procurement cost of at least $50,000, and is the single largest such computer customer in the Department of Defense. Its projected acquisition plan for embedded computer systems during the first half of the 80s contemplates the installation of over 10,000 such systems at an estimated cost of several billions of dollars. This expenditure, though large, is dwarfed by the 85 billion dollars which DOD is project… more

S-1 project. Volume II. Hardware. 1979 annual report

Description: This volume includes highlights of the design of the Mark IIA uniprocessor (SMI-2), and the SCALD II user's manual. SCALD (structured computer-aided logic design system) cuts the cost and time required to design logic by letting the logic designer express ideas as naturally as possible, and by eliminating as many errors as possible - through consistency checking, simulation, and timing verification - before the hardware is built.

60 GHz and 110 GHz development program. Quarterly report No. 2, October-December 1979

Description: The objective of this program has been changed from developing a microwave amplifier or oscillator capable of producing 200 kW cw power output at 110 GHz to developing families of microwave oscillators capable of producing 200 kW of peak power output at 60 GHz and some higher frequency, possibly 90 GHz or 110 GHz, with pulse durations at 100 ms, 30 s and cw. The use of cyclotron resonance interaction is being pursued. The early design phases of this program are discussed.

700, 100, and 20 hp combustion test facilities. Quarterly activity report, July 2, 1979-September 30, 1979, third quarter. [Coal-oil slurry combustion as retrofit]

Description: Objective of the DOE/PETC 700 H.P. Combustion Test Facility (CTF) is to show the feasibility of coal-oil slurry combustion as a retrofit technology. The coal-oil mixture (COM) parametric combustion test program in the CTF was completed successfully for 30, 40, and 50% coal-oil concentrations; plugging in the nozzles at 50% COM and burner nozzle wear were among the problems. Progress on the 100 and 20 H.P. units is also reported. (DLC)

1979 CECAM workshop on transport of fast electrons in laser fusion plasmas. Progress report

Description: Attention is given to three problem areas in laser-driven electron transport: (1) ion-acoustic turbulence as a source of inhibition, (2) the effects of anti E times anti j heating of the thermals, and (3) the possibility of thermal inhibition by thermal electron runaway or trapping.

2s 2p /Sup 3/P/Sub 1//Sup 0/. --≫. 2s/Sup 2/ /Sup 1/S/Sub 0/ Intercombination Line in Beryllium-Like Krypton, Molybdenum and Tungsten

Description: Transition probabilities are evaluated for the 2s 2p /sup 3/P/sub 1//sup 0/ ..-->.. 2s/sup 2/ /sup 1/S/sub 0/ transition in beryllium-like ions for krypton, molybdenum and tungsten, using configuration-interaction wavefunctions. The importance of the 2s 3p /sup 1/P/sub 1//sup 0/ configuration is considered.

Absorption, distribution and excretion of inhaled hydrogen fluoride in the rat

Description: Rats were subjected to whole body HF exposure for 6 hrs or to nose-only HF exposure for 1 hr. Total and/or ionic fluoride concentrations in selected tissues were determined at various times following exposure. In rats sacrificed 6 hrs after whole body exposure, dose-dependent increases in lung, plasma, and kidney total and ionic fluoride concentration occurred. Rats excreted more fluoride in the urine after whole body exposure than could be explained by the amount of HF inhaled. Considerable ev… more

Activities of the Department of Energy in education. Annual status report, FY 1978

Description: The Department of Energy's responsibilities in implementing President Carter's National Energy Plan include identifying the appropriate role of educational activities and institutions in that work. This study describes educational activities as they existed one year after the creation of the Department of Energy. Educational activities of educational institutions are included in the study, with the deliberate exception of the very substantial research activity conducted by universitie… more

Addition of devolatilization equations to synthane computerized mathematical model. Quarterly report, September 15--December 15, 1978

Description: Six approaches to devolatilization modeling have been reviewed. Two have been selected for further evaluation: the Vand-type model of Anthony and Howard and the diffusion model of Russel et al. The first of these treats particles under kinetic control only. The second includes some mass transfer control along with kinetic control. Behavior of particles in the SYNTHANE process appears to be in the transition region between kinetic and mass transfer control. Work during the next quarter will focu… more

Advanced thermionic energy conversion. Joint highlights and status report, April-June 1979

Description: The DOE portion of the effort at Rasor Associates is directed primarily toward terrestrial applications of thermionic energy conversion. It focuses on the development of converters suitable for use with fossil fueled heat sources in power plants. The NASA program is directed at establishing the technical feasibility of an advanced light-weight long-life thermionic conversion system compatible with a remote nuclear or solar heat source. The principal application forseen at this time is in nuclea… more
