Phase digitizing sharpens timing measurements

IEEE Spectrum, 1988

Oscilloscopes and other instruments that so precisely measure voltage are ill- suited to handling time-based communications signals, for their preoccupation with amplitude compromises timing accuracy, wastes memory, and complicates timing analysis. A measurement technique is presented, called phase digitizing, that remedies the situation by continuously counting a signal's zero-crossings and recording exactly when they occur. The deficiencies of previous approaches ...

  • Safety Analysis of “ Older/Aged ” Handling and Transportation Equipment for Heavy Loads, Radioactive Waste and Materials in Accordance with German Nuclear Standards KTA 3902, 3903 and 3905

    The purpose of this paper is to present a general safety analysis of important handling and transportation processes and their related equipment (“load chains” consisting of cranes, load-bearing equipment and load-attaching points). This project was arranged by the responsible Bavarian ministry for environment, health and consumer protection (StMUGV) in agreement with the power plant operators of all Bavarian nuclear power plants to work out potential safety improvements. The range of the equipment (e.g. reactor building, crane, refuelling machine, load-bearing equipment and load-attaching points covers the handling and transportation of fuel elements (e. g. with fuel flasks), heavy loads (e. g. reactor pressure vessel closure head, shielding slabs) and radioactive materials and waste (e. g. waste flasks, control elements, fuel channels, structure elements). The handling equipment was subjected to a general safety analysis taking into account the ageing of the equipment and the progress of standards. Compliance with the current valid requirements of the state of science and technology as required by German Atomic Act and particularly of the nuclear safety KTA-standards (3902, 3903 and 3905) was examined. The higher protection aims "safe handling and transportation of heavy loads and safe handling of radioactive materials and waste" of the whole analysis are to avoid a criticality accident, the release of radioactivity and inadmissible effects on important technical equipment and buildings. The scope of the analysis was to check whether these protection aims were fulfilled for all important technical handling and transportation processes.

  • Identified Risks at Swedish Recycling Centres during Handling of Waste from Electric and Electronic Equipment

    Waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE) is the most rapidly growing waste stream. Further, producer responsibility was enforced in EU member countries during 2005. Most of the WEEE in Sweden is collected at manned recycling centres, which have a key role for the downstream handling in order to ensure high collection rates of WEEE and a proper initial sorting. The Swedish concept for collection of WEEE is based on manual work which creates risks for the employees. This paper have identified a number of risks in the work environment at recycling centres during handling of WEEE, particularly frequent heavy manual lifting of televisions, white goods and net cages. The personnel especially suffer from ache or pain from the back, and they show a high number of occupational accidents

  • How to strengthen food safety in circulation field by HACCP

    In recent years, the situation of food safety has been better than before in our country, but we are still facing severe challenge as there are often food safety issues in circulation field, so strengthening food safety management in circulation is the keystone in food safety work in China. 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and 2010 World Expo in Shanghai will further promote economic development, in which food safety is very important. There is much food safety experience and measures to ensure food circulation safety abroad well worthy of our learning. HACCP Certification System is generally applied in the world and is helpful to strengthen food safety in the circulation of our country. Through analysis of factors causing food safety hazards, this thesis puts forward the existing food safety issues in the circulation field of our nation and focuses on research how HACCP enhances the safety of food circulation.

  • TRU waste systems models

    Transuranic waste is currently generated and/or stored at several sites throughout the Department of Energy complex in the US. The goal of the DOE National Transuranic Waste Program is to effect a safe, integrated, and economical disposal system for these wastes. Several alternatives are being considered. The selection process will involve tradeoffs of cost, risk, dose, and system efficiency. Simulation models are being used to aid in the analysis of the various options. In addition to modeling the material flow, the simulation tracks many specialized operational parameters related to the material processed or the elapsed time. These parameters track the radiological and chemical exposure dose to workers; the radiological, chemical, and hazardous risk associated with processing and storing drums; and the capital and operating costs of the facilities. The system being modeled has a timeline of approximately 30 years to fund, design, construct, operate, and decommission the needed facilities. The intent is to model this timeline and to include facility costs not directly related to processing. The tracking of these parameters is piggy backed onto the main simulation engine. Flexible simulation models, controlled by the user at run time, were developed. Two such models are presented.

  • Advanced Approach for Calibration of the Segmented Gamma Scanner for the Radioassay of Drummed Waste

    Fast and complete waste characterization is essential for waste handling and environmental protection. Nondestructive assay by gamma ray scanning can provide a fast, convenient and reliable way of measuring many radionuclides in closed items. Segmented gamma scanner (SGS) is designed to perform accurate quantitative assays on gamma emitting nuclides found in fission product, activation product, and transuranic (TRU) waste. In this paper we describe a challenging waste measurement need resulting in the development of a spectroscopy system with a wide operational dynamic range. The instrument described represents an advance in the state of the practice of segmenting gamma scanning technology. It combines in a single device the ability to accurately measure drummed contact handled (CH) radioactive waste with high sensitivity and also the items of high activity. In the former case a fairly conventional transmission corrected approach is followed with a traditional slot collimator. In the latter case an attenuator with three narrow slits is used to define a representative field of view of the segments and the gross matrix correction based on the average drum density. The calibration of the system is also novel because whereas experimental measurements in the factory are practical in the sensitive mode it is not possible to construct and use simulated waste forms representative of the high activity waste. To overcome this limitation the response with the slit collimator was estimated using the ISOCS numerical simulation approach benchmarked to the experimental data in the sensitive mode. Numerical simulation for waste assay is an emerging technology. It is gaining acceptance especially for difficult to measure situations. Standards bodies have recognized this trend and are working toward formulating best practice guides. The present work provides a successful case history on this important development.

  • The Handling of Telegrams in Facsimile

    The adaptation of facsimile scanning and recording apparatus to the handling of commercial telegrams has dictated the use of several expedients to accelerate the processing, among them being higher speed of trace and scanning rate, minimization of wasteful scanning, dry-process recording, and automatic loading and discharge. Apparatus incorporating these features is in daily use, having a capacity of 50 telegrams per hour.
