  2. REAL-TIME COLLECTION OF OPERATIONAL DATA TO SUPPORT RISK-BASED OPERATION REGULATION AND INSPECTIONS AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTERIZED DATA COLLECTION DEVICES EXIST AND ARE BEING USED IN VARIOUS APPLICATIONS AT SOME NPPS FOR SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT NOT INSTRUMENTED IN THE CONTROL ROOM. HOWEVER, CURRENT APPLICATIONS IN THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY ARE RATHER SPORADIC AND NOT EXPLOITING THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE TECHNOLOGY. FOR EXAMPLE, SEVERAL DIFFERENT NPPS USE SUCH SYSTEMS FOR SINGLE- PURPOSES SUCH AS TRENDS IN EQUIPMEN ...

  3. AN ADAPTING FINITE ELEMENT MODEL FOR UNSATURATED POROUS MEDIA

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A TWO-DIMENSIONAL NUMERICAL MODEL BASED ON A HYBRID FINITE ELEMENT METHOD WITH MESH ADAPTATION IS PROPOSED TO CALCULATE GROUNDWATER FLOW AND POLLUTANT TRANSPORT IN UNSATURATED POROUS MEDIA. THE ALGORITHM IS MODIFIED TO ENHANCE COMPUTATIONAL SPEED AND STORAGE, AND INCORPORATES PETROV-GALERKIN WEIGHTING FOR THE ADVECTION TERMS. NONLINEARITIES ASSOCIATED WITH UNSATURATED SOIL PROPERTIES, ATMOSPHERIC ...

  6. A Variable Thurst Detonation Wave Engine, DWE, for Mach 0 to 3 Applications

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a novel, high thrust density Detonation Wave Engine (DWE) applicable to the Mach range of 0 to 3. The geometry of this novel engine concept naturally provides for integration into a new Combined Cycle Engine with Ramjets. The concept is an intermittent combustion jet engine that harnesses travelling detonation waves to accomplish compression and chemical reaction. The goal ...

  7. A Variable Thrust Detonation Wave Engine DWE for Mach 0 to 3

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    An innovative actively cooled structure concept is proposed which integrates proven cooling techniques and state-of-the-art fabrication methods to extend the maximum combustor wall temperature, thereby reducing cooling requirements and aircraft weight while improving engine performance. Specifically, CONvective and TRANspiration cooling (CONTRAN) are uniquely combined, relying on hydrogen coolant ...

  9. Instrumentation for Non-Intrusive Water Droplet Size and Mass Flux Measurements Utilizing the Phase Doppler Method

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for non-intrusive instrumentation to characterize the drop size distribution and volume flux in support of on-line engine/inlet icing tests. The ducts may vary from three to twelve feet in diameter with flow field speeds from Mach 0.2 to 0.5. The Phase Doppler technique offers the best potential for making these measurements non-intrusively and with sufficient accuracy to meet the ...
