Blanket energy multiplication enhancement without afterheat safety hazards

IEEE Thirteenth Symposium on Fusion Engineering, 1989

An approach to augmenting the energy multiplication of fusion reactor blankets is proposed. It consists of including, in the blanket, a high-Q element in a fluid state, thereby allowing removal of its contribution to afterheat in case of a loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA). The two general design approaches proposed are including Mn or Cr-containing particles within a gas coolant, and using ...

  • Blanket energy multiplication enhancement without afterheat safety hazards

    An approach to augmenting the energy multiplication of fusion reactor blankets is proposed. It consists of including, in the blanket, a high-Q element in a fluid state, thereby allowing removal of its contribution to afterheat in case of a loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA). The two general design approaches proposed are including Mn or Cr-containing particles within a gas coolant, and using MnF/sub 2/ or CrF/sub 2/ in a molten salt system. A preliminary feasibility study indicates that both approaches could be practical, so that a more thorough assessment is recommended.<<ETX>>

  • A Note on EMP Safety Hazards

    The character of transient electric fields induced in spherical homogeneous tissue models of man and animals by incident electromagnetic fields similar to that originating from lightning and EMP generators has been theoretically determined. The magnitude of the induced fields is found to be approximately proportional to the time rate of change of the incident field and independent of the pulsewidth. It was also found that maximum EMP induced field in spherical shaped bodies is nearly proportional to the radius of the body. Therefore, for EMP safety standards, more consideration should be given to the time rate of change of the incident field rather than to the pulsewidth, and when laboratory animal data are used as a guide they should be extrapolated to account for body size.

  • Ex-ante assessment of struck-by safety hazards in construction projects: A motion-planning approach

    Struck-by accidents are one of the major causes of fatalities and injuries in construction projects. While the likelihood of struck-by hazards is significantly affected by the layout of a jobsite, sequence of activities, and movement patterns of equipment and workers, there is currently no existing methodology for ex-ante investigation of struck-by safety hazards during the construction planning phase. In this paper, we propose a preliminary methodology for evaluation of struck-by safety hazards using a motion planning approach. We solve the problem of finding collision states and obstacle free paths for working in the middle of moving machinery and in the presence of various obstacles. We present, propose, and implement efficient algorithms to create safe routes for workers that avoid static and moving obstacles. We present a detailed case study of a common construction task involving struck- by hazards. We discuss several avenues for future work that could transform into robust methodologies for safety planning in complex construction projects.

  • Multitasking and the Illusion of Safety: The Potential Impact in Certain Electrical Hazard Scenarios

    Evidence suggests that conducting two or more tasks simultaneously (i.e., multitasking) leads to decreased attention overall and plays a contributing role in accidents and injuries. This article examines the potential impact multitasking can have in a work environment influenced by electrical hazards. This article 1) provides an example of an incident scenario in which multitasking could play a role, 2) describes the psychology of multitasking, 3) explains why we overestimate our multitasking ability and how this leads us to take risks, and 4) suggests how to apply this knowledge in certain electrical hazard scenarios.

  • A primer on emergency response for electrical safety professionals

    This paper provides electrical safety professionals with a general overview of the emergency response process to better prepare them to work with emergency response teams or fire brigades. This paper will explore how an emergency response team works, their function, and their authority. Emergency response planning, knowledge, and skills are required to appropriately and safely address the electrical hazards and the consequences of personnel exposure to electrical energy. Emergency response is a critical, yet often not well considered, element in any electrical safety program. Having a good understanding of emergency response teams and their work will greatly improve an electrical safety professional's ability work with emergency response teams to affect practical, safe, and effective responses to electrical related incidents.

  • How to develop an effective training program

    This article will address some of the basic concepts for developing a training program that would be needed for qualifying electrical maintenance employees. The typical method utilized for developing such an effective training program is the systematic approach to training (SAT) and instructional systems design (ISD) methodology. The analysis phase of the ISD will be the primary focus of this article and will address several key elements which include the requirements for a qualified person, as well as conducting a needs assessment, job/task analysis (JTA), and job hazards analysis to develop and maintain an effective and safe work force.

  • Training electrical maintenance employees to be qualified

    Training electrical maintenance employees to be qualified is vital to a safe and efficient work force, as well as to the reliability and integrity of electrical systems and equipment. This paper will address several key components needed in order to develop a comprehensive training program that will help to qualify maintenance employees. A thorough understanding of the requirements for a qualified person will be of great benefit in conducting the needs assessment as well as the job/task and hazard analysis and therefore benefit the development of the training program. The subjects addressed in this paper should help clarify some of the basic concepts needed in order to develop an effective training program

  • An early warning system for traffic and road safety hazards using collaborative crowd sourcing

    The increase in the number of vehicles running on the roads challenges the road maintenance department to meet the demand for timely repair of the road and therefore, find a unified solution to identify the road construction problems such as potholes, bumps, corrugations, waves, defective street cuts, etc. Without a better real-time traffic alerts system, efficient maintenance of city roads will be difficult. So, a more effective monitoring system is required for detecting and solving road infrastructure problems. This research work presents an analytical model of a system that detects pavement deformities. The system presents a mobile application that captures the accelerometer profile using the in-built accelerometer in smartphone, to obtain the location of pavement deformities. The variations in the accelerometer values with respect to the vehicle speed are taken into account.

  • The automobile: For better or worse: Amid controversy about size, fuel consumption, and safety hazards, there is unanimity concerning the application of electronics to autos

    Cadillac's chief engineer, Robert Templin, is hardly alone among his colleagues in the industry when he asks: “How much pollution is too much? How much fuel efficiency is enough? Who will pick up the tab for a zero-risk, zero-pollution car?” Never in its history has Detroit been faced with so many problems. Henry Ford himself might have opted for horse-drawn buggies instead of horseless carriages in the same situation.
