  1. DEVELOPMENT OF A DYNAMIC OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL TO SUPPORT RISK MANAGEMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ACTIVITY WITHIN THE NRC AND THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY SEEKS TO EXPLOIT THE BENEFITS OF PRA IN RISK-BASED APPROACHES TO RELIEVE REGULATORY BURDEN ON THE ECONOMICALLY THREATENED NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. THE ACCIDENT PREVENTION GROUP HAS BEEN DEVELOPING THE CONCEPT OF AN INTEGRATED RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (IRMP) TOWARD SUCH GOALS. A KEY ELEMENT OF AN IRMP IS AN "OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL" OF THE NPP THA ...

  2. IN-SITU OPTICAL DIAGNOSIS AND CONTROL OF PULSED LASER DEPOSITION OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR THIN FILMS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH MANY POTENTIAL TECHNOLOGIES EXIST FOR DEPOSITING EXOTIC THIN FILM DEVICES, CONTROLLING THE MATERIAL PROPERTIES HAS BEEN A MAJOR STUBLING BLOCK TO ACHIEVING SUCCESSFUL AND REPRODUCIBLE DEVICE PROPERTIES. IN THE CASE OF PULSED LASER DEPOSITION (PLD) OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR FILMS, THE EMISSION OF THE PLASMA CAN BE CORRELATED WITH THE QUALITY OF FILMS DEPOSITED. BUT THIS MEASUREMENT PROVIDE ...

  4. NEURAL NETWORK APPLICATIONS FOR CLOUD-TRACK WIND DETERMINATION

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO APPLY ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS TO THE DERIVATION OF CLOUD MOTION VECTORS FROM SATELLITE IMAGERY. IN PHASE I, WE WILL CONCENTRATE ON USING A NEURAL NETWORK IN THE FIRST STEP IN THE DERIVATIO OF CLOUD MOTION VECTORS, THE HEIGHT ASSIGNMENT AND TARGET SELECTION. THE NEURAL NETWORK COMBINES, AT EACH IMAGE PIXEL, BRIGHTNESS IN DIFFERENT CHANNELS TO DETERMINE CLOUD TYPE AND LEVEL (I.E., L ...

  5. VIOOL PROVIDES CONCURRENT ENGINEERING SUPPORT FOR BUILDING ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS

    SBC: ALTERNATIVE SYSTEM CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CONCURRENT ENGINEERING IS A CRUCIAL METHODOLOGY IN REDUCING DEVELOPMENT COST AND TIME OF HARDWARE AND ITS COMPLEMENTING SOFTWARE. TODAY NO TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE THAT CAN PROVIDE A TIGHT INTEGRATION OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT (CO-DESIGN). ASC PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF VIOOL (VHDL INTERFACING OBJECT-ORIENTED LANGUAGES) AS A TOOL SUITE TO BOTH BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN WHAT IS NEEDED AND WHAT ...

  9. NANOSTRUCTURE FABRICATION OF SOLID STATE DEVICES

    SBC: Avoca Laboratorytories            Topic: N/A

    AS THE DIMENSIONS OF ELECTRONIC DEVICES APPROACH ATOMIC SCALES, A RANGE OF NEW QUANTIZIED PHENOMENA APPEAR. ONE SUCH EFFECT, COULOMB BLOCKADE, REPRESENTS A FRONTIER AREA OF RESEARCH IN APPLIED NANOSCIENCE. HOWEVER, DIFFICULTIES IN FABRICATING DEVICES SMALL ENOUGH TO DEMONSTRATE QUANTUM BEHAVIOR HAVE RESTRICTED PROGRESS IN THIS FIELD. DURING PHASE 1, AVOCA LABORATORIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND FABRIC ...

  10. PARALLEL METHODS FOR THE SCHROEDINGER EQUATION

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL DEVELOP WAVELET-BASED DOMAIN DECOMPOSITION PROCEDURES FOR THE SOLUTION OF THE INITIAL VALUE PROBLEM FOR THE SCHROEDINGER EQUATION ON MULTIDIMENSIONAL SPATIAL DOMAINS. ACCURATE AND PRACTICAL NUMERICAL CALCULATIONS WOULD BE OF GREAT USE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION AND EXTENSION OF THE BORN-OPPENHEIMER PROCEDURE. BEING BOTH COMPACTLY SUPPORTED AND ORTHOGONAL, WAVELETS COMBINE THE ADVANTAGES OF FINI ...
