  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  2. EXTENDED FATIGUE LIFE EVALUATION METHODS FOR AGED LWR COMPONENTS

    SBC: O'donnell Consulting Engineers            Topic: N/A

    STRESSES DUE TO PRESSURE AND REPEATED THERMAL CYCLING CAUSE PROGRESSIVE MATERIAL DAMAGE DURING THE OPERATION OF LWR COMPONENTS AND PIPING SYSTEMS. THE PRESENT PRO POSED RESEARCH WOULD IMPROVE THE ACCURACY OF EXISTING S- N FATIGUE EVALUATION METHODS BY COMBINING THEM WITH THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY OF CRACK PROPAGATION AND FRACTURE MECH ANICS. ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE CRACK PROPAG ...

  3. FUNCTIONAL CONDITION OF SOLENOID-OPERATED VALVES USED IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Pentek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PENTEK WILL DEVELOP AND TEST A TECHNIQUE TO DETERMINE THE FUNCTIONALITY OF SOLENOID-OPERATED VALVES IN A NUCLEAR POWERPLANT BASED ON THE MEASUREMTNT AND ANALYSIS OF IN-RUSH CURRENT. THE TECHNIQUE WILL BE DEVELOPED SO THAT ALL MEASUREMENTS CAN BE MADE FROM OUTSIDE THE REACTOR BUILDING WITHOUT DISTRUBING ANY ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS. THE ANALYSIS METHODS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR ON-LINE USE WITH A PERSON ...
