  • An Experiment in the Reduction of Physics Content

    An experiment has been conducted in which the conventional introductory physics course for engineers has been reduced, and the capabilities of two groups of students-one group having had certain physics topics and the second group without these-have been compared. The comparison was made in mixed classes in engineering statics. Insofar as the data can be analyzed, they seem to show no essential differences in the performance of the two groups. Certainly, preliminary work in physics did not give that group of students any major advantage.

  • A thermodynamic analysis and optimization of a large refrigeration system

    Some new concepts that simplify the analysis and improve the accuracy of the results are provided and applied to the thermodynamic analysis and optimization of a refrigeration system. It is shown that a large quantity of exergy is wasted during the system running, decreasing the exergy efficiency of the system. Methods to reduce the quantity of exergy converted into energy without being utilized are considered. An operating scheme suitable for different conditions is provided and shown to increase exergy efficiency about 70%. From the viewpoint of exergy analysis, there are some problems in the system design. There are many cells with zero or very small efficiencies. Additional studies are required to optimize the design of the system.<<ETX>>

  • Modeling and Dynamic Analysis of Nuclear Power Plant Reactor Based on PSASP

    In this paper, we propose a dynamic mathematical model for nuclear power plant (NPP) reactor, and give an implementation in Power System Analysis Software Package (PSASP) through a user-defined program. NPP is modeled with a bipartite model that consists of the neutron dynamics module and thermodynamics module. Through the simulation results of NPP reactor under different disturbances, a conclusion can be drawn that the temperature effect and poisoning effect are crucial to the self-stability of reactor, which is not only the basis of safe operation of the nuclear power plant but also the aim of the designing. The simulation validated the proposed NPP reactor model, and it can be packaged with the other parts of the NPP detailed model in PSASP for further usage in dynamic calculation of the power system.

  • Some Restrictions on Nuclear Ramjet Engine Performance Imposed by Control System Component Limitations

    There is presented a brief technical discussion of ramjet propulsion thermodynamics. The more important controllable variables effecting thrust are described. Two important performance parameters used in the evaluation of jet engines are explained, thrust coefficient and specific impulse. These parameters are compared for chemically fueled and nuclear powered ramjets, rockets, and turbojets. Theoretical maximum performance, in terms of altitude and Mach number, are computed for an ideally low-drag ramjet vehicle incorporating a nuclear power plant. Considering present state of the art controls and materials limitations, some restrictions to the ideal performance envelope are shown.

  • Noise thermometry for nuclear applications

    The effects of nuclear radiations on conventional thermocouples (type K, C and N) mainly used in irradiation experiments may create significant drifts of the signals. In order to solve these difficulties, the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique has started to develop and qualify in laboratory conditions a miniature device, which combines a noise thermometer and thermocouples, for a future application in a research reactor. In this paper, a particular approach of a combined noise thermometer- thermocouples is described. Although the aim of the method is to cover temperatures over 1000°C, present measurements are realized in laboratory at 300°C which is the mean temperature in materials irradiation experiments.

  • Cooling of Spins via Quantum Data Compression

    To achieve scalability of NMR computers, one needs a large number of highly polarized spins in liquid nuclear-spin systems at finite temperature. In quantum computing terminology, such spin-half states are (almost) pure qubit states. Producing highly polarized spins (almost pure qubit states) out of non-polarized spins (non-pure qubit states) is sometimes called "purification ". From a thermodynamic point of view, purification can be viewed as cooling spins to a very low temperature and can be achieved via data compression algorithms on spins. In this work, we study how classical data compression codes can be used to design cooling algorithms. Specifically, we utilize fixed-rate block compression codes for long molecules and variable-rate lossless compression codes for short molecules and and provide a rudimentary analysis of cooling performance for both short and long molecules.

  • About methodical errors in studies of mass transfer processes induced by intense pulsed ion beams in solids

    The present paper briefly discusses the questions of accuracy of depth profiling techniques in studies of mass transfer processes induced by intense pulsed ion beams (IPIB) in solids. The best measurement tools provide good precision only. An acceptable reproducibility, correctness, and, finally, accuracy of measurement are a result of complete elimination all of the systematic errors. The first ones are caused by a dependence of main SIMS and AES analytical characteristics, ionization coefficients and sputtering factors, on a degree of IPIB exposure. It is shown that the preferable application of nuclear analysis methods, RBS and PIGE, avoids these errors. A mechanical polishing conventionally applied for surface preparation of specimens under investigation engenders to unpredictable changing of mechanical, electric and thermodynamic properties of the surface layer, for at least 1 /spl mu/m depth in the case of Cu surface polishing and for the depth less than the previous one by the factor of 3-5 for /spl alpha/-Fe, steel, Zr, etc. Surface preparation with electrochemical polishing allows a second kind of error to be avoided. A third kind of systematic error is connected with vagueness of the main IPIB parameters (ion species, energy distribution, flux) at the investigated section of the modified sample. Use of more detailed specimens analyzed by cross section is suggested in order to avoid these errors.

  • Studying phase equilibrium liquid-vapor in the system UF/sub 6/-BRF/sub 3/ with 343.15 and 353.15 K

    The given paper studies the liquid-vapor phase equilibrium in the system UF<sub>6</sub>-BrF<sub>3</sub> under temperatures of 343.15 and 353.15 K. For the experiments, bromine trifluoride and industrial uranium hexafluoride were used. Cleaning UF<sub>6</sub> and BrF<sub>3</sub> from HF was performed by long low-temperature vacuum distillation laws of phase equilibria. Thus, the thermodynamic analysis of experimental and calculated data by the phase equilibriums liquid-vapor in the system UF<sub>6</sub>-BrF<sub>3</sub> at the temperatures 343.15 K and 353.15 K revealed their conformity to main laws of phase equilibriums. Obtained experimental data show the capability of dividing the considered system into pure components by the methods of distillation and rectification.

  • Thermo-economic performance comparison between two steam source schemes in the auxiliary steam system in nuclear power plants

    Two steam source schemes in the auxiliary steam system of nuclear power plants, which are the main steam directly desuperheated and decompressed scheme and the main steam as heat-emission medium forming a integrate steam- water circulation transformation scheme, have been presented. The indices of each scheme, such as exergy consumption coefficient, unit thermo-economic cost, cost difference and exergy economic coefficient, have been calculated and analyzed by thermo-economics analysis method. The results show that the cost of the steam source obtained by the main steam directly desuperheated and decompressed scheme is lower than the main steam's steam-water circulation transformation scheme in either energy cost or non-energy expenditure, and in the secondary one, the vulnerable spots in energy utilization mainly are the auxiliary de-aerator and the feed-water pump, the reasons of which are the higher heat exchange temperature difference in de-aerator and higher delivery head of feed-water pump.

Over the last five years, a series of education experiments were performed in introductory thermodynamics classes for sophomore and junior engineer students at Penn State University, USA. The class sizes ranged from 12 to 70, and students enrolled in the classes were from mechanical, aerospace, nuclear and civil engineering departments. In most cases, these experiments were conducted in standard three period per week formats.
