  1. IMPROVEMENTS IN MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE DESIGN AND PREDICTIVE MODELS FOR RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY SYSTEMS

    SBC: KALSI ENGINEERING, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE OPERABILITY PROBLEMS AND FAILURES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AS STATEDIN NRC IE BULLETIN 85-03 AND GENERIC LETTER 89-10. THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT IMPROVING GATE VALVE PERFORMANCE BY (1) DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIVE PERFORMANCE PREDICTION MODELS FOR USE OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, (2) DEFINING LIMITS, BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGNS, BEYOND WHICH E ...

  2. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  3. "ELECTRO-DEPOSITION OF SILICON FILMS FROM LIQUID-METAL SOLUTIONS FOR PHOTOVOLTAIC APPLICATIONS"

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRO-DEPOSITION OF SILICON FILMS FROM LIQUID-METAL SOLUTIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A LOW-COST PROCESS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HIGH-EFFICIENCY THIN-FILM PHOTOVOLTAIC DEVICES. SPECIFICALLY, CURRENT-CONTROLLED GROWTH OF A SILICON FILM ON A SUBSTRATE IS ACCOMPLISHED USING A LIQUID-METAL SOLUTION, SUCH AS TIN, AND A SILICON SOURCE ELECTRODE. THE QUALITY OF SILICON GROWN FRO ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE CHEMICALLY RESISTANT COMPOSITE MEMBRANES

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC MEMBRANES HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PERFORM ENERGY-EFFICIENT SEPARATIONS IN APPLICATIONS IN A GAS- AND VAPOR-SEPARATIONS MARKET THAT TOTALS AT LEAST $750 MILLION. HOWEVER, THE CURRENT SALES OF MEMBRANE SYSTEMS FOR THESE APPLICATIONS IS ONLY A FEW TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS--PRIMARILY BECAUSE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE MEMBRANES CANNOT WITHSTAND EXPOSURE TO THE HYDROCARBONS AND SOLVENTS OFTEN PRESE ...

  8. BOREHOLE PIEZOELECTRIC SOURCE FOR HIGH RESOLUTION SEISMIC APPLICATIONS

    SBC: High Resolution Seismics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. HAS AN ESTIMATED 327 BILLION BARRELS OF OIL IN EXISTING PRODUCTION FIELDS WHICH REMAINS IN PLACE EVEN AFTERPRIMARY AND SECONDARY RECOVERY TECHNIQUES HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED. HIGH RESOLUTION BOREHOLE-TO-BOREHOLE SEISMIC TOMOGRAPHY CAN PROVIDE THE INFORMATION NEEDED TO LOCATE THESE UNPRODUCED REGIONS THROUGH THE IDENTIFICATION OF SUBTLE GEOLOGIC ANOMALIES AND CAN BE USED TO ASSESS THE PROGRESS O ...

  9. APPLICATION SPECIFIC, DISCRETE JUNCTION FET DESIGNED FOR USEIN LARGE PARTICLE DETECTOR PREAMPLIFIER CIRCUITRY

    SBC: Interfet Corp            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED ELECTRONICS IN THE PREAMPLIFIER CIRCUIT OF CALORIMETER DETECTORS IS DESIRED TO IMPROVE THE ABILITY TO COLLECT DATA FROM HIGH ENERGY ACCELERATORS FOR PHYSICS EXPERIMENTS. EXTREMELY LOW NOISE AMPLIFICATION IS REQUIRED TO AVOID POOR SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIOS SINCE ANALOG SUMS OF ALL THE DETECTOR SIGNALS ARE PERFORMED FOR TRIGGER PURPOSES. FAST SIGNAL PROCESSING SPEED IMPOSED BY THE EVENT RATES ...

  10. ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED CHROMATOGRAPHY FOR MONITORING PHOTOCHEMICALDETOXIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTES

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY FOR EFFLUENT MONITORING IS THE RELATIVELY LOW SPEED OF ANALYSIS. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED CAPILLARY GAS CHROMATOGRAPH WHICH WOULD BE SUITABLE FOR THE ANALYSIS OF EFFLUENT SAMPLES IN JUST A FEW SECONDS. THE HEART OF THE NEW INSTRUMENT WOULD BE A MICROBORE COLUMN WITH AN INTERNAL DIAMETER OF 50 MUM O ...
