The Morgantown Energy Technology Center`s particulate cleanup program  

SciTech Connect

The development of integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) and pressurized fluidized-bed combustion (PFBC) power systems has made it possible to use coal while still protecting the environment. Such power systems significantly reduce the pollutants associated with coal-fired plants built before the 1970s. This superior environmental performance and related high system efficiency is possible, in part, because particulate gas-stream cleanup is conducted at high-temperature and high-pressure process conditions. A main objective of the Particulate Cleanup Program at the Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC) is to ensure the success of the CCT demonstration projects. METC`s Particulate Cleanup Program supports research, development, and demonstration in three areas: (1) filter-system development, (2) barrier-filter component development, and (3) ash and char characterization. The support is through contracted research, cooperative agreements, Cooperative Research And Development Agreements (CRADAs), and METC`s own in-house research. This paper describes METC`s Particulate Cleanup Program.

An Organizational Cultural Assessment of the Morgantown Energy Technology Center  

SciTech Connect

An Organizational Cultural Assessment (OCA) was performed at the Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC) by administering an Organizational Culture Survey (OCS) that queried employees on the subjects of organizational culture, various aspects of communications, employee commitment, work group cohesion, coordination of work, environmental, safety, and health concerns, hazardous nature of work, safety and overall job satisfaction. The purpose of the OCS is to measure in a quantitative and objective way the notion of culture;'' that is, the values, attitudes, and beliefs of the individuals working within the organization. In addition, through the OCS, a broad sample of individuals can be reached that would probably not be interviewed or observed during the course of a typical assessment. The OCA also provides a descriptive profile of the organization at one point in time that can then be compared to a profile taken at a different point in time to assess changes in the culture of the organization. 9 refs., 33 figs., 6 tabs.

Environment, Safety and Health Progress Assessment of the Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC)  

SciTech Connect

This report documents the result of the US Department of Energy`s (DOE) Environment, Safety and Health (ES&H) Progress Assessment of the Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC) in Morgantown, West Virginia. METC is currently a research and development facility, managed by DOE`s Office of Fossil Energy. Its goal is to focus energy research and development to develop engineered fossil fuel systems, that are economically viable and environmentally sound, for commercial application. There is clear evidence that, since the 1991 Tiger Team Assessment, substantial progress has been made by both FE and METC in most aspects of their ES&H program. The array of new and restructured organizations, systems, and programs at FE and METC; increased assignments of staff to support these initiatives; extensive training activities; and the maturing planning processes, all reflect a discernable, continuous improvement in the quality of the ES&H performance.

Transfer of oil shale research data into the Morgantown Energy Technology Center data base  

SciTech Connect

The US Department of Energy (DOE), Morgantown Energy Technology Center constructed a fossil energy research data base to make data readily available to the public, to avoid duplication of research, to guide future research, and to reduce costs of future research. Western Research Institute (WRI) was awarded a contract to put data from work done prior to 1983 into the data base. Most of the data that WRI transferred to DOE on magnetic tape was oil shale data because the underground coal gasification (UCG) data base was not ready to receive data until late in the contract period. The high cost of processing data in the manner specified prevented all of the highly ranked data from being transferred with available funding. One hundred and ten sets of data were transferred to DOE on magnetic tape: ninety-three sets of oil shale data and two sets of UCG data to the test data data base, and fifteen sets of oil shale data including assay, mineralogy, and lithology data from 12,907 samples using 7,972,404 computer words to the resource extraction data base. Two thousand and seventy sets of data were microfiched and transferred to DOE; these included 1111 sets of oil shale data, 211 sets of tar sands data, 195 sets of UCG data, and 216 sets of environmental data. Three recommendations are made for reducing the cost of transferring data into the data base: (1) eliminate the use of data input forms, (2) eliminate the waiting time between responses from the computer, and (3) keep the data base updated. 3 refs., 1 fig., 2 tabs.

White spotting variant (Wv) mouse as an experimental model for ovarian aging and menopausal biology  

PubMed Central

Objective Menopause is a unique phenomenon in modern women, as most mammalian species possess a reproductive period comparable to their lifespan. Menopause is caused by the depletion of germ cell-containing ovarian follicles, and in laboratory studies is usually modeled in animals in which the ovarian function is removed by ovariectomy or chemical poisoning of the germ cells. Our objective was to explore and characterize the white spotting variant (Wv) mice that have reduced ovarian germ cell abundance, a result of a point mutation in the c-kit gene that decreases the kinase activity, as a genetic model for use in menopausal studies. Methods Physiological and morphological features associated with menopause were determined in female Wv/Wv mice compared to age-matched wildtype controls. Immunohistochemistry was used to evaluate the presence and number of follicles in paraffin-embedded ovaries. Bone density and body composition were evaluated using the PIXImus X-ray densitometer, and lipids, calcium, and hormone levels were determined in serum using antigen-specific EIAs. Heart and body weight were measured, and cardiac function was evaluated by transthoracic echocardiography. Results The ovaries of the Wv/Wv females have a greatly reduced number of normal germ cells at birth compared to wildtype mice. The remaining follicles are depleted by around 2 months, and the ovaries develop benign epithelial lesions that resemble morphological changes that occur during ovarian aging, whereas a normal mouse ovary has numerous follicles at all stages of development and retains some follicles even in advanced age. Wv mice have elevated plasma gonadotrophins and reduced estrogen and progesterone levels, a significant reduction in bone mass density, and elevated serum cholesterol and lipoprotein levels. Moreover, the Wv female mice have enlarged hearts and reduced cardiac function. Conclusions The reduction of c-kit activity in Wv mice leads to a substantially diminished follicular endowment in newborn mice and premature depletion of follicles in young mice, though the mutant females have a normal lifespan after cessation of ovarian function. The Wv female mice exhibit consistent physiological changes that resemble common features of postmenopausal women. These alterations include follicle depletion, morphological aging of the ovary, altered serum levels of cholesterol, gonadotropins, and steroid hormones, decreased bone density, and reduced cardiac function. These changes were not observed in male mice, either age-matched male Wv/Wv or WT mice, and are unlikely caused by global loss of c-kit function. The Wv mouse may be a genetic, intact-ovary model that mimics closely the phenotypes of human menopause to be used for further studies to understand mechanisms of menopausal biology.

La2O3-reinforced W and W-V alloys produced by hot isostatic pressing  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

W and W-V alloys reinforced with La2O3 particles have been produced by MA and subsequent HIP at 1573 K and 195 MPa. The microstructure of the consolidated alloys has been characterized by scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy analyses and X-ray diffraction. The mechanical properties were studied by nanoindentation measurements. The results show that practically full dense billets of W-V, W-V-La2O3 and W-La2O3 alloys can be produced. The microstructure analysis has shown that islands of V are present in W-V and W-V-1La2O3 alloys. In W-1La2O3 islands of La2O3 are also present. The nanohardness of the W matrix increases with the addition of V, while decreases with the addition of La2O3.

Long-term benthic monitoring programs near the Morgantown and Calvert Cliffs power plants. Annual report, 1980-1984  

SciTech Connect

Macrobenthos and physical/chemical factors known to affect them were monitored near Calvert Cliffs on the mainstem of the Chesapeake Bay (1971-1984). These data, along with data collected near Morgantown on the Potomac River (1980-1984), were used to quantify variation in macrobenthic abundance due to spatial patterns, season, year, and power plant operations. Macrobenthos were persistent within bounds determined by year-to-year variation in salinity and dissolved oxygen. All species responded to anoxia by declines in abundance. Species that prefer high mesohaline salinity increased in abundance at Calvert Cliffs; freshwater and estuarine species increased in abundance at Morgantown.

Inter-calibration of METEOSAT IR and WV channels using HIRS  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The detection of climate change and analysis of climate variability at inter-annual scales requires long-term, well calibrated observations that are homogenized in time and space. Observations from EUMETSAT's series of Meteosat First and Second Generation geostationary satellites span a period from 1982 to today for satellites operated over the Atlantic Ocean (sub-satellite longitude 0 degrees), and from 1997 to today for satellites operated over the Indian Ocean. Although these satellites provide data for climate analysis at multi-decadal scales, their applicability for such analysis is hampered by heterogeneities in the time series due to successive radiometers having different filter functions and changes in the calibration methodology. To improve the quality of these time series EUMETSAT has initiated an activity to inter-calibrate their data to community references, following the principles of the Global Space-based Inter-Calibration System (GSICS). We present the strategy to inter-calibrate the complete time series of Water Vapour (WV, 6.3 µm) and Infrared (IR, 11.8 µm) channel radiances from the MVIRI instrument on Meteosat First Generation and the SEVIRI instrument on Meteosat Second Generation. Two different inter-calibration methods are evaluated i.e., (1) inter-calibrate to a homogenised time series of HIRS observations, and (2) inter-calibrate using the so called double differencing methodology. The latter method compares, for instance, observations from two Meteosat instruments to observations of one HIRS instrument, and then calculates the difference between the two Meteosat instruments, or vice versa. Both methods are validated against reference observations, for which observations from the IASI instrument are used. In addition, the stability of the HIRS on Metop is investigated with Metop IASI observations. We have analysed the uncertainties introduced in both methods by changes in filter functions, collocation scene variability, instrument noise and calibration drift. A systematic review of spectral conversion functions, which often dominate the errors, indicates that the best set up is to use collocations under all conditions, i.e., all latitudes covered by the collocated observations, all atmospheric situations including cloudy scenes, and all viewing angles. Estimates of spectral conversion uncertainties have been computed among pairs of different instrument types (HIRS/2, HIRS/3, MVIRI and SEVIRI), and are almost an order of magnitude larger for the WV than the IR channel. For the WV channel spectral conversions from HIRS/2 to HIRS/3 and HIRS/4 have an uncertainty of approximately 1 K, whereas the conversion uncertainties from MVIRI to SEVIRI are about 0.5 K. With some exceptions the conversions among the same type of instruments, such as HIRS/3 to HIRS/4 or SEVIRI to SEVIRI, have uncertainties of less than 0.1 K.

WvFEv3: An FPGA-based general purpose digital signal processor for space applications  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Waves instruments aboard the Juno and Radiation Belt Storm Probe (RBSP) spacecraft represents the next generation of space radio and plasma wave instrumentation developed by the University of Iowa's Radio and Plasma Wave group. The previous generation of such instruments on the Cassini spacecraft utilized several analog signal-conditioning techniques to compress and condense scientific data. Compression techniques are necessary because the plasma wave instruments can often generate significantly more science data than can be transmitted using the narrow telemetry channel of the hosting spacecraft. The next generation of plasma wave instrumentation represents a major shift of analog signal conditioning functionality to the digital domain, drastically reducing the amount of power and mass required by the instrument while simultaneously further condensing scientific data, increasing the precision of plasma emission measurements, and adding flexibility. The solution presented in this thesis is to utilize a low-cost radiation tolerant field programmable gate array (FPGA) that serves as a space qualified implementation platform for a custom designed general-purpose digital signal processor, called the WvFEv3.

A Reduction of Cyclooxygenase 2 Gene Dosage Counters the Ovarian Morphological Aging and Tumor Phenotype in Wv Mice  

PubMed Central

Menopausal ovaries undergo morphological changes, known as ovarian aging, which are implicated in the high incidence of ovarian cancer occurring during the perimenopausal and immediate postmenopausal periods. The germ cell-deficient Wv mice recapitulate these postmenopausal alterations in ovarian morphology and develop tubular adenomas. We demonstrate that a reduction of cyclooxygenase 2 gene dosage rescued the ovarian aging phenotype of the Wv mice, whereas homozygous deletion was accompanied by a compensatory increase in ovarian cyclooxygenase 1 expression and prostaglandin E2 synthesis. Cyclooxygenase inhibitors also reduced the tumor phenotype in a preliminary study. These findings suggest that increased cyclooxygenase activity contributes to the preneoplastic morphological changes of the ovarian surface epithelium, which can be reversed by a reduction of gene dosage achieved by either genetic or pharmacological approaches.

Spatial unmixing for environmental impact monitoring of mining using UAS and WV-2  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The three principal activities of the mineral resources mining industry - mining, mineral processing and metallurgical extraction - all produce waste. The environmental impact of these activities depends on many factors, in particular, the type of mining and the size of the operation. The effects of the mining (extraction) stage tend to be mainly local, associated with surface disturbance, the production of large amounts of solid waste material, and the spread of chemically reactive particulate matter to the atmosphere and hydrosphere. Many studies have shown the potential of remote sensing for environmental impact monitoring, e.g., [1]. However, its applicability has been limited due to the inherent spatial-spectral and temporal trade-off of most sensors. More recently, miniaturization of sensors makes it possible to capture color images from unmanned aerial systems (UAS) with a very high spatial resolution. In addition, the UAS can be deployed in a very flexible manner, allowing high temporal resolution imaging. More detailed spectral information is available from multispectral images, albeit at lower spatial resolution. Combining both types of images using image fusion can help to overcome the spatial-spectral trade-off and provide a new tool for more detailed monitoring of environmental impacts. Within the framework of the ImpactMin project, funded by the Framework Programme 7 of the European Commission, the objective of this study is to implement and apply the spatial unmixing algorithm, as proposed by [2], on images of the 'Vihovici Coal Mine' area, located in the Mostar Valley, Bosnia and Herzegovina. A WorldView2 (WV2) satellite image will be employed, which provides 8-band multispectral data at a spatial resolution of 2m. High spatial resolution images, obtained by a SmartPlanes UAS, will provide RGB data with 0.05m spatial resolution. The spatial unmixing technique is based on the idea that a linear mixing model can be used to perform the downscaling of the spectral information of the first image to the spatial resolution of the second image. The spatial unmixing technique has shown potential as a fusion approach [2], but has never been tested on real settings at a very high detail, i.e., cm level spatial resolution. The aim is to demonstrate suitability of the spatial unmixing method on this type of imagery, and to investigate how this can contribute to increase the detail of environmental impact monitoring in the region under study. The results will be presented at the conference. [1] R. Latifovic, K., Fytas, and J. Paraszczak, J.. "Assessing land cover change resulting from large surface mining development."

Cross-language specialization in phonetic processing: English and Hindi perception of /w/-/v/ speech and nonspeech.  

PubMed

This study examined the perceptual specialization for native-language speech sounds, by comparing native Hindi and English speakers in their perception of a graded set of English /w/-/v/ stimuli that varied in similarity to natural speech. The results demonstrated that language experience does not affect general auditory processes for these types of sounds; there were strong cross-language differences for speech stimuli, and none for stimuli that were nonspeech. However, the cross-language differences extended into a gray area of speech-like stimuli that were difficult to classify, suggesting that the specialization occurred in phonetic processing prior to categorization.

First-principles model for phase stability, radiation defects and elastic properties Of W-Ta and W-V alloys  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Tungsten alloys are candidate materials for DEMO divertor applications because of their high melting point and low sputtering yield. We explore, using ab initio methods, the phase stability trend of W-Ta and W-V alloys. The available experimental phase diagrams of these alloys describe phase stability only in the high temperature limit. In this study, structural and phase stability, point defects and anisotropic elasticity properties of binary W-Ta and W-V alloys are investigated as functions of alloy composition, through a combined density functional theory and Monte-Carlo approach. For W-Ta alloys we find that for the more stable phases the order-disorder transition temperature is close to 600 K. This is coherent with recent mechanical test, which show that the ductile-to-brittle transition temperatures of all the W-V and W-Ta alloys are higher than that of pure W.

Examination of a 15. 24-cm ball valve from the Morgantown Energy Technology Center Lock Hopper Valve Testing and Development Project: failure analysis report  

SciTech Connect

A 15.24-cm ball valve failed while undergoing tests in simulated lock hopper service. The valve stem developed severe torsional deformation after 3134 cycles while handling limestone fines, and a replacement stem also exhibited deformation after an additional 124 cycles. The test was terminated at that point due to excessive valve leakage. Inspection of the valve at METC revealed large quantities of limestone fines packed between the valve ball and the body, and also revealed chipping of the chromium oxide coating around the valve stem slot. The valve seats, ball, and stem were sent to the Materials Science Division of Argonne National Laboratory for further examination. A visual examination at Argonne confirmed the general features seen at METC, and also revealed chipping of the coating on the overspray region of one of the valve seats. It was determined that the torque required to cause gross plastic deformation of the valve stem was well below that which the actuator was capable of applying in the valve test at METC. A microstructural examination of sections from each of the two valve seats indicated no significant debonding of the coating, and an independent analysis by the Linde Division of Union Carbide Corp. found the coating to meet the manufacturer's specifications. Variations in coating thickness on the valve ball of the order of 50% were observed using eddy-current techniques, but absolute values for the coating thicknesses were not obtained.Hardness readings on the valve-seat coating material were found to be slightly below the specified values, but the difference did not appear to be significant.

Molecular bases of dominant negative and loss of function mutations at the murine c-kit/white spotting locus: W37, Wv, W41 and W.  

PubMed Central

The proto-oncogene c-kit encodes a transmembrane tyrosine protein kinase receptor for an unknown ligand and is allelic with the murine white-spotting locus (W). Mutations at the W locus affect various aspects of hematopoiesis, the proliferation and migration of primordial germ cells and melanoblasts during development. The original W mutation and W37 are severe lethal mutations when homozygous. In the heterozygous state the W mutation has a weak phenotype while W37 has dominant characteristics. Wv and W41 are weak W mutations with dominant characteristics. We have characterized the molecular basis of these four W mutations and determined their effects on mast cell differentiation by using a fibroblast/mast cell co-culture assay. We show that W37, Wv and W41 are the result of missense mutations in the kinase domain of the c-kit coding sequence (W37 E----K at position 582; Wv T----M position 660 and W41 V----M position 831), which affect the c-kit associated tyrosine kinase to varying degrees. The c-kit protein products in homozygous mutant mast cells are expressed normally, although the 160 kd cell membrane form of the c-kitW37 protein displays accelerated turnover characteristics. The W mutation is the result of a 78 amino acid deletion which includes the transmembrane domain of the c-kit protein. A 125 kd c-kit protein was detected in homozygous W/W mast cells which lacks kinase activity and is not expressed on the cell surface.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) Images Fig. 2. Fig. 3. Fig. 5.

Preliminary results comparing DHSVM and Sacramento Model simulations versus observed flows in the Cheat River Basin, WV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The National Weather Service (NWS) Ohio River Forecast Center (OHRFC) has calibrated the Sacramento Soil Moisture Accounting (SAC-SMA) Model to approximately 100 subbasins in the Ohio River Basin for use in current daily operations. Many additional calibrations are expected to be completed in the coming months. However, research is also underway to evaluate the use of a fully distributed hydrologic model, the Distributed Hydrologic Soil-Vegetation Model (DHSVM), developed at the University of Washington. DHSVM has been implemented for the Cheat River Basin, a high terrain region of West Virginia, that experiences significant snowfall and orographically driven precipitation enhancement. Model simulation comparisons between the SAC-SMA model and DHSVM against observed flows will be presented. Distributed hydrologic models have long promised improvements over lumped conceptual models such as the SAC-SMA. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) combined with significant improvements in both the quantity and quality of soils, vegetation, terrain, landuse, and other geophysical data sets have made it feasible to objectively estimate model parameters for hydrologic models over broad areas, namely, the Ohio River Basin. The more physically-based hydrologic models become, the more quickly these models can be implemented and the more easily their model states can be interpreted and compared to remotely sensed observations, while minimizing subjective model calibrations. An additional benefit of the use of physically-based distributed hydrologic models, like DHSVM, is the capability of interfacing with atmospheric numerical weather prediction (NWP) models through their land-surface parameterizations.

Interactions between multiple-seam longwall and room-and-pillar operations. A case study in Boone County, WV. Report of Investigations/1990 (Final)  

SciTech Connect

In order to reduce waste and improve resource conservation, mine planniNg, and development, the U.S. Bureau of Mines is investigating the effects of multiple seam interactions associated with longwall coal mining. Field investigations were conducted at a mine located in Boone County, WV, where a longwall panel was operating subjacent to room-and-pillar workings in an overlying seam. To assess the effects of overlying workings on longwall headgate stability, the Bureau gathered various geotechnical information at this minesite. Headgate pillars and entries were instrumented and monitored to study their behavior during side-abutment loading as the longwall panel approached and passed beneath the overlying room-and-pillar develpments. The two operations are separated by 800 ft of interburden, and although interactions between operations separated by this distance are uncommon, geomechanical measurements indicate the occurrence of an interaction. These measurements show that convergence on the headgate entries was most adverse subjacent to barrier pillars in the overlying mine. Pillar measurements indicate that side-abutment pressure increases were slightly greater than predicted values. Several factors related to both geology and mine design, believed responsible for this large interactive distance, are discussed.

Long-term monoclonal reconstitution of erythropoiesis in genetically anemic W/Wv mice by injection of 5-fluorouracil-treated bone marrow cells of Pgk-1b/Pgk-1a mice  

SciTech Connect

The spleen colony-forming assay does not represent the number of hematopoietic stem cells with extensive self-maintaining capacity because five to 50 spleen colony-forming units (CFU-S) are necessary to rescue a genetically anemic (WB X C57BL/6)F1-W/Wv(WBB6F1-W/Wv) mouse. We investigated which is more important for the reconstitution of erythropoiesis, the transplantation of multiple CFU-S or that of a single stem cell with extensive self-maintaining potential. The electrophoretic pattern of hemoglobin was used as a marker of reconstitution and that of phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK), an X chromosome-linked enzyme, as a tool for estimating the number of stem cells. For this purpose, we developed the C57BL/6 congeneic strain with the Pgk-1a gene. Bone marrow cells were harvested after injection of 5-fluorouracil from C57BL/6-Pgk-1b/Pgk-1a female mice in which each stem cell had either A-type PGK or B-type PGK due to the random inactivation of one or two X chromosomes. When a relatively small number of bone marrow cells (ie, 10(3) or 3 X 10(3) were injected into 200-rad-irradiated WBB6F1-W/Wv mice, the hemoglobin pattern changed from the recipient type (Hbbd/Hbbs) to the donor type (Hbbs/Hbbs) in seven of 150 mice for at least 8 weeks. Erythrocytes of all these WBB6F1-W/Wv mice showed either A-type PGK alone or B-type PGK alone during the time of reconstitution, which suggests that a single stem cell with extensive self-maintaining potential may sustain the whole erythropoiesis of a mouse for at least 8 weeks.

A cyber medical center.  

PubMed

This paper describes the design and implementation of a Cyber Medical Center (CMC) using web technology. The intention is to overcome the inefficiency of the traditional filing system for patients' medical records, which are considered to be time and space consuming. Another objective is to enhance the interaction between the user - the patient in this case - and the medical center personnel - the doctors and staff. This task is achieved by developing a cyber medical center interfaced with the Internet to provide direct public access. The traditional filing system is replaced by a database system for maintaining the electronic medical records of all patients in the medical center. The doctors or staff can either view the medical records or update them through the Intranet/Internet. This system has been successfully developed, implemented and tested on the Intranet platform. It will be available in a university medical center for practical use. PMID:16520147

Breast Centers in Austria  

PubMed Central

Summary Breast centers (BRCs) in Austria are currently managed and will be managed in the future as interdisciplinary and largely virtual, well-structured entities. The goals of the initiative to set up these centers are convergence of care, enhancement of the quality of care delivered to women diagnosed with breast cancer, and a significant actual benefit for the affected women. Given the geographical and infrastructural circumstances and partly already existing diagnostic and therapeutic facilities, a collaborating center model seems to be the target-oriented solution to employ the already existing resources. Evaluation and optimization of outcome quality (i.e. overall survival rate, disease-free survival, breast conservation rate, etc.) necessitate the implementation of treatment pathways with data collection and recording in a central registry. The aim should be to create an independent ‘neutral’ certification commission (a standard setter) in order to adapt the requirements of BRCs to Austrian circumstances. An appointed certification agency reviews compliance with the specifications of the certification commission. The European Society of Mastology (EUSOMA) specifications, as laid down in the European Parliament, serve as guidelines. These specifications were compiled by the brain trust of the Austrian Federal Institute of Health (ÖBIG) in Chapter 3.6.11 ‘Breast Health Centers’ for implementation in the Austrian Health Care Structure Plan (ÖSG). BRCs in Austria should demonstrate a minimum caseload of 100 primary diagnoses per year. The collaborating partners – the affiliated centers – may, however, join a BRC with a demonstrated minimum caseload of 30 per year. In this model, the outcome quality should be achieved even with a smaller caseload with structure quality assurance. It is planned that, by the end of 2016, breast health centers will take over the comprehensive care of breast cancer patients nationwide. Center certification is viewed as quality enhancement since care is provided to all patients on a verifiable high quality level, subject to constant improvements.

QUAD FAMILY CENTERING.  

SciTech Connect

It is well known that beam position monitors (BPM) utilizing signals from pickup electrodes (PUE) provide good resolution and relative accuracy. The absolute accuracy (i.e. position of the orbit in the vacuum chamber) is not very good due to the various reasons. To overcome the limitation it was suggested to use magnetic centers of quadrupoles for the calibration of the BPM [1]. The proposed method provides accuracy better then 200 microns for centering of the beam position monitors using modulation of the whole quadrupole family.

Trap centers in molybdates  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Charge carrier trapping centers have been studied in molybdates CaMoO4, SrMoO4 and PbMoO4 with the scheelite crystal structure as well as in ZnMoO4, which crystallize in a-ZnMoO4 structural type. The trap parameters such as activation energies and frequency factors have been determined. It is shown for the first time that both electrons and holes are trapped by the elements of regular crystal structure in ZnMoO4. The effect of the charge carrier trapping on luminescence properties is demonstrated. Potential influence of the traps on the scintillation process is discussed.

Space Weather Action Center  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In this interdisciplinary activity, learners create a Space Weather Action Center (SWAC) to monitor solar storms and develop real SWAC news reports. Learners work in teams to first investigate sunspot regions, storm signals, a magnetosphere, and auroras and share their research with their peers. Then, learners assemble an instructional flip chart, data collection clipboards/notebook, and display board for their SWAC. Learners conclude the activity by writing their own weather reports, which can be filmed or broadcast if equipment is available. Once learners create a SWAC, solar storm research and reporting can become an ongoing activity.

HEMISPHERIC CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY  

SciTech Connect

The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) demonstration of the diamond wire cutting technology on the surrogate of the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor (TFTR), Figure 1, was performed from August 23-September 3, 1999. The plated diamond wire, Figure 2, was successful in cutting through all components of the TFTR surrogate including stainless steel, inconel and graphite. The demonstration tested three different void fill materials (mortar with sand, Rheocell-15, and foam) and three cooling systems (water, air, and liquid nitrogen). The optimum combination was determined to be the use of the low-density concrete void fill, Rheocell-15 with an average density of 52 lbs/ft{sup 3}, using a water coolant. However, the liquid nitrogen performed better than expected with only minor problems and was considered to be a successful demonstration of the Bluegrass Concrete Cutting, Inc. proprietary liquid-nitrogen coolant system. Data from the demonstration is being calculated and a summary of the technology demonstration will be included in the October monthly report. An ITSR will be written comparing the diamond wire saw to the plasma arc (baseline) technology. The MTR Chemical Protective Suit, a proprietary new suit from Kimberly Clark, was evaluated from 8/9/99 to 8/12/99 at Beaver, WV. This particular suit was tested on subjects performing three different tasks: climbing through a horizontal confined space, vertical confined space (pit), and loading and unloading material using a wheel barrow. Multiple test subjects performed each task for 20 minutes each. Performance of the innovative suit was compared to two commonly used types of protective clothing. Vital statistics, including body temperature and heart rate, were continuously monitored and recorded by an authorized physician. A summary of the demonstration will be included in the October monthly report. Along with the MTR Chemical Protective Suit, the VitalSense{trademark} Telemetric Monitoring System from Mini Mitter Co., Inc. was evaluated. A summary of the demonstration will be included in the October monthly report. A Kool-Vest from MicroClimate Systems, Inc. was evaluated during assessment at Beaver, WV from 8/16/99 to 8/17/99. The evaluation was performed in the same manner as the MTR Chemical Protective Suit described above. A summary of the demonstration will be included in the October monthly report. A brochure announcing the new Gateway to Environmental Technology (GET) website was produced by FIU-HCET and is being distributed to the D&D community by FETC-DDFA. The website provides links to the TIS and other decision support systems developed at FIU-HCET.

Taking the center to market.  

PubMed

Community mental health centers have seldom been involved in marketing their services. Marketing is defined as responding sensitively to human needs, not hucksterism, and is an appropriate activity for centers. Centers are vulnerable because of declining federal funding and in order to serve the poor, must also service other populations with greater ability to pay for services or face retrenchment. Over the past twenty years, locally controlled centers have broadened their missions to serve many types of personal and family problems, not just the chronically ill. Centers should omit "mental health" for their names because of the stigma. Guidelines for creation of a positive image including name and logo selection, color, open houses, and ad campaigns are given using Madison Center (formerly the Mental Health Center of St. Joseph County) as a case study. Reactions of other providers, creative delivery of services through consultation and education, market segmentation and message levels of advertising are also discussed. PMID:3830554

COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE CENTER  

SciTech Connect

Computational Science is an integral component of Brookhaven's multi science mission, and is a reflection of the increased role of computation across all of science. Brookhaven currently has major efforts in data storage and analysis for the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the ATLAS detector at CERN, and in quantum chromodynamics. The Laboratory is host for the QCDOC machines (quantum chromodynamics on a chip), 10 teraflop/s computers which boast 12,288 processors each. There are two here, one for the Riken/BNL Research Center and the other supported by DOE for the US Lattice Gauge Community and other scientific users. A 100 teraflop/s supercomputer will be installed at Brookhaven in the coming year, managed jointly by Brookhaven and Stony Brook, and funded by a grant from New York State. This machine will be used for computational science across Brookhaven's entire research program, and also by researchers at Stony Brook and across New York State. With Stony Brook, Brookhaven has formed the New York Center for Computational Science (NYCCS) as a focal point for interdisciplinary computational science, which is closely linked to Brookhaven's Computational Science Center (CSC). The CSC has established a strong program in computational science, with an emphasis on nanoscale electronic structure and molecular dynamics, accelerator design, computational fluid dynamics, medical imaging, parallel computing and numerical algorithms. We have been an active participant in DOES SciDAC program (Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing). We are also planning a major expansion in computational biology in keeping with Laboratory initiatives. Additional laboratory initiatives with a dependence on a high level of computation include the development of hydrodynamics models for the interpretation of RHIC data, computational models for the atmospheric transport of aerosols, and models for combustion and for energy utilization. The CSC was formed to bring together researchers in these areas and to provide a focal point for the development of computational expertise at the Laboratory. These efforts will connect to and support the Department of Energy's long range plans to provide Leadership class computing to researchers throughout the Nation. Recruitment for six new positions at Stony Brook to strengthen its computational science programs is underway. We expect some of these to be held jointly with BNL.

Industrial Assessment Center Program  

SciTech Connect

Over the five-year period (2002-2006) the Oklahoma State University Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) performed energy assessments for 106 different clients, writing 835 recommendations, for a total of $23,937,099 in potential estimated annual savings. IAC clients served consisted of small and medium-sized manufacturers ranging from food manufactures to foundries. The OSU IAC served clients in Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Texas. In addition to client service, student training and instruction was a major accomplishment. The OSU IAC employed (and trained) 12 baccalaureate-level students, 17 masters-level graduate students, and 7 doctoral-level graduate students. Most are practicing in the energy management area. Training was focused on both energy assessment and safety. Safety training was both center-based training as well as on-site training. Energy management related training was focused on classroom (for academic credit) work at both the undergraduate and graduate level. IEM 4923 (Energy and Water Management) was developed to serve both the IAC as well as non-IAC students. It was delivered once per year, with enrollments of typically 10 to 20 students. This course was required for IAC student employees, both undergraduate and graduate. This course was patterned after the AEE CEM (five-day) course for practicing professionals. IEM 4923 required each student to attend at least one on-site assessment and write at least one recommendation for their client’s report. Hence, a hands-on approach was practiced. Advance level courses were used to train graduate students. Two courses played major roles here: IEM 5923 (Advanced Energy and Water Management) and IEM 5943 (Hazardous Material and Waste). Graduate student participation in these courses helped the IAC to gain additional perspectives in on-site assessment and resulting recommendations. Numerous hands-on demonstration/training was conducted by directors and graduate students in order to gain proficiency in using the combustion analyzer, IR camera, logging equipment, light metering equipment, and other equipment. Instruction included usage and basic maintenance. While undergraduate students worked with the coursework and on-the-job training, graduate students were expected to do more. A typical MS student was required to complete a 3-hour independent study in some interesting facet of energy management under the supervision of a director. PhD students were expected to complete from three to six hours of independent study work in the energy management field, as well as center their dissertation research in the general area of energy/productivity/quality management. During the project period, two PhDs were completed, with several more near completion.

The U.S. government has been assisting the Russian Federation (RF) Ministry of Defense (MOD) for many years with nuclear weapons transportation security (NWTS) through the provision of specialized guard escort railcars and cargo railcars with integrated physical security and communication systems, armored transport vehicles, and armored escort vehicles. As a natural continuation of the NWTS program, a partnership has been formed to construct a training center that will provide counterterrorism training to personnel in all branches of the RF MOD. The Abramovo Counterterrorism Training Center (ACTC) is a multinational, multiagency project with funding from Canada, RF and the U.S. Departments of Defense and Energy. ACTC will be a facility where MOD personnel can conduct basic through advanced training in various security measures to protect Category IA material against the threat of terrorist attack. The training will enhance defense-in-depth principles by integrating MOD guard force personnel into the overall physical protection systems and improving their overall response time and neutralization capabilities. The ACTC project includes infrastructure improvements, renovation of existing buildings, construction of new buildings, construction of new training facilities, and provision of training and other equipment. Classroom training will be conducted in a renovated training building. Basic and intermediate training will be conducted on three different security training areas where various obstacles and static training devices will be constructed. The central element of ACTC, where advanced training will be held, is the 'autodrome,' a 3 km road along which various terrorist events can be staged to challenge MOD personnel in realistic and dynamic nuclear weapons transportation scenarios. This paper will address the ACTC project elements and the vision for training development and integrating this training into actual nuclear weapons transportation operations.

Substation Reliability Centered Maintenance  

SciTech Connect

Substation Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is a technique that is used to develop maintenance plans and criteria so the operational capability of substation equipment is achieved, restored, or maintained. The objective of the RCM process is to focus attention on system equipment in a manner that leads to the formulation of an optimal maintenance plan. The RCM concept originated in the airline industry in the 1970s and has been used since 1985 to establish maintenance requirements for nuclear power plants. The RCM process is initially applied during the design and development phase of equipment or systems on the premise that reliability is a design characteristic. It is then reapplied, as necessary, during the operational phase to sustain a more optimal maintenance program based on actual field experiences. The purpose of the RCM process is to develop a maintenance program that provides desired or specified levels of operational safety and reliability at the lowest possible overall cost. The objectives are to predict or detect and correct incipient failures before they occur or before they develop into major defects, reduce the probability of failure, detect hidden problems, and improve the cost-effectiveness of the maintenance program. RCM accomplishes two basic purposes: (1) It identifies in real-time incipient equipment problems, averting potentially expensive catastrophic failures by communicating potential problems to appropriate system operators and maintenance personnel. (2) It provides decision support by recommending, identifying, and scheduling preventive maintenance. Recommendations are based on maintenance criteria, maintenance history, experience with similar equipment, real-time field data, and resource constraints. Hardware and software are used to accomplish these two purposes. The RCM system includes instrumentation that monitors critical substation equipment as well as computer software that helps analyze equipment data.

VLBA Detects Earth's Motion Around the Milky Way's Center  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It takes our Solar System more than 200 million years to orbit the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, 26,000 light-years away. Despite that tremendously long time span, astronomers using the National Science Foundation's (NSF) powerful Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) radio telescope have shown they can detect this orbital motion in ten days! In addition, they have made a new and more accurate determination of just how long it takes us to circle our Galaxy -- 226 million years. "Not only is this a tremendous technical achievement, but it also has allowed us to greatly strengthen the scientific case for a supermassive black hole at the Galaxy's center -- definitely ruling out a multiple-star system," said Mark Reid of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Reid, along with Anthony Readhead and Rene Vermuelen of Caltech and Robert Treuhaft of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, announced their discovery at the American Astronomical Society's meeting in Chicago. The scientists used the continent-wide VLBA, part of the NSF's National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), to observe a radio-wave-emitting object called Sagittarius A* (pronounced "A-star"), that has been thought to mark the exact center of the Milky Way since its discovery more than two decades ago. They were able to measure its position on the sky within nearly one ten-thousandth of a second of arc -- a precision 600,000 times greater than that of the human eye and more than 500 times greater than that of the Hubble Space Telescope. With this precision, the astronomers were able to detect the slight apparent shift in position of Sagittarius A* compared to the positions of much more-distant quasars behind it. That apparent shift was caused by the motion of the Solar System around the Galaxy's center. "From these measurements, we estimate that we are moving at about 135 miles per second in our orbit around the center of the Milky Way," Reid said. "Even though it takes more than 200 million years for us to complete an orbit of the Galaxy's center, we can detect this motion in ten days' observing with the VLBA!" The observations allowed the scientists to calculate a more accurate figure for how long it takes the Solar System to orbit the Galaxy's center. "Our new figure of 226 million years is accurate to within six percent," Reid said. "The measurements we made with the VLBA place Sagittarius A* very close to, and most likely at, the exact (dynamical) center of our Galaxy, just as we expected," Reid said. "Right now, the new data also indicate that the minimum mass for this object is about 1,000 times the mass of the Sun. This rules out a multiple-star system and strengthens the idea that this object, much smaller than our own Solar System, contains a black hole about 2.6 million times more massive than the Sun," Reid added. "We plan future observations that will increase the accuracy of our measurements even further, and, we suspect, raise the minimum mass for this object by as much as 100 times," Reid said. The Milky Way's center, a complex region containing not only Sagittarius A* but also numerous supernova remnants and magnetic features, is obscured from optical telescopes by dust. Sagittarius A* was discovered in 1974 by astronomers using radio telescopes at the NRAO facility in Green Bank, WV. The NRAO's Very Large Array (VLA) and the VLBA both have been used for numerous studies of the Galactic Center region. The VLBA is a system of ten radio-telescope antennas, each 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter, stretching some 5,000 miles from Mauna Kea in Hawaii to St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Operated from NRAO's Array Operations Center in Socorro, NM, the VLBA offers astronomers the greatest resolving power, or ability to see fine detail, of any telescope currently operational. The NRAO is a facility of the National Science Foundation, operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc.

Senior centers. Shifting student paradigms.  

PubMed

The purpose of this study was to evaluate an innovative service learning experience for new nursing students involving senior citizen centers. Junior nursing students (n = 128) were assigned in cohorts to one of five centers for a 5-week rotation. A questionnaire was administered post hoc to the students, teaching assistants, center directors, and a sample of senior citizens at each site. The majority of students believed the experience was a valuable part of the curriculum and saw prospects for community health nursing roles. However, they had concerns regarding losing time in acute care and relevance and number of assignments, and reported some difficulty in applying classroom content in the setting. Directors and senior citizens were universally positive about the experience. Student and teaching assistant reports were key in revising the curriculum. Revisions include logistics of the placement of the experience and assignments as well as incorporation of this experience within the community context. PMID:9923238

Galileo: Sun-Centered System  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Before the 17th century, people generally believed that Earth was at the center of the universe, a system originally developed by Ptolemy. Galileo, however, was not afraid to challenge existing beliefs when he published his work in support of the Sun-centered, or heliocentric, theory developed by Copernicus. This video segment describes the two opposing worldviews and Galileo's observation that Venus exhibited phases, like Earth's moon, certain evidence in support of the Copernican theory. The segment is five minutes six seconds in length. A background essay and discussion questions are included.

The Water Resources Scientific Information Center (WRSIC) acquires, abstracts and indexes the major water resources related literature of the world, and makes information available to the water resources community and the public. A component of the Water Resources Division of the US Geological Survey, the Center maintains a searchable computerized bibliographic data base, and publishers a monthly journal of abstracts. Through its services, the Center is able to provide reliable scientific and technical information about the most recent water resources developments, as well as long-term trends and changes. WRSIC was established in 1966 by the Secretary of the Interior to further the objectives of the Water Resources Research Act of 1964--legislation that encouraged research in water resources and the prevention of needless duplication of research efforts. It was determined the WRSIC should be the national center for information on water resources, covering research reports, scientific journals, and other water resources literature of the world. WRSIC would evaluate all water resources literature, catalog selected articles, and make the information available in publications or by computer access. In this way WRSIC would increase the availability and awareness of water related scientific and technical information. (Lantz-PTT)

Sanger Center reaches out. Japan.  

PubMed

In an interview with the Japanese Family Planning Association (FPA), Alexander Sanger, president of Margaret Sanger Center International (MSCI), Planned Parenthood of New York City (PPNYC), sketched the history of the clinic and research center founded by his grandmother, Margaret Sanger. The first person to come to the clinic from another country for training was Shidzue Kato of Japan. In addition to providing FP services and training, the clinic became known as a research center for new methods of contraception. After its 1973 merger with PPNYC, the clinic continued to function as an international training center with funding from the US Agency for International Development and the UN Population Fund. MSCI works with governments and nongovernmental organizations worldwide and focuses on 1) improving quality of care in FP clinics, 2) integrating FP into primary health-care centers, 3) promoting family life education, 4) improving male involvement in FP, 5) HIV/AIDS education, and 6) training FPAs in FP and women's rights advocacy. Sanger noted that FP advocates in the US were unsuccessful in lobbying to prevent a decrease in US funding of international FP programs (down to $385 million in 1996 from $548 million in 1994). Sanger called upon Japan and European countries to help make US politicians understand that providing FP funding is a responsibility of the most powerful nation in the world. Rather than cutting support, the US should be increasing funds for international FP efforts in conjunction with the US commitment to the International Conference on Population and Development's Program of Action.

Connection: Schwartz Center Rounds at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center  

PubMed Central

Shortly before his death in 1995, Kenneth B. Schwartz, a cancer patient at Massachusetts General Hospital, founded the Kenneth B. Schwartz Center®, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and advancing compassionate health care. The Center sponsors Schwartz Rounds®, a multidisciplinary forum in which doctors, nurses, chaplains, social workers, and other staff reflect on important psychosocial issues that arise in caring for patients. Attendees participate in an interactive discussion about issues anchored in a case presentation and share their experiences, thoughts, and feelings. The patient narratives may center on wonderful events and transcendent experiences or tragic stories, during which staff can only bear witness to the suffering. The Rounds focus on caregivers' experiences, and encourage staff to share insights, own their vulnerabilities, and support each other. The primary objective is to foster healing relationships and provide support to professional caregivers, enhance communication among caregivers, and improve the connection between patients and caregivers. Currently, >50,000 clinicians attend monthly Schwartz Rounds at 195 sites in 31 states, numbers that are rapidly growing. In this article we explore the reasons that contribute to the success of this model of multidisciplinary reflection.

Person-centered medical interview  

PubMed Central

Abstract We are witnessing an unprecedented development of medical science and personalized medicine. However, technological superiority must not make us lose sight of the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual totality of the patient. The core of the medical profession has always been and will be the relationship between the health professional and the person seeking assistance. However, the traditional relationship between the physician and the patient has changed and is greatly impacted by huge social, philosophical, economic, and scientific developments. It is important to develop and promote the culture of health instead of the culture of illness through a patient-doctor collaborative partnership, as well as partnership among professionals. Person-centered medical interview is an important bridge between personalized and person-centered medicine.

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Housed at Jefferson's University (otherwise known as the University of Virginia), it makes sense that the Miller Center of Public Affairs would be located at such a distinct institution. With a mandate to "gather new knowledge about the American presidency and our government", they have created six different initiatives to complete this task. They include a massive collection of oral history materials gleaned through presidential recordings and interviews as well as their substantial series of publications. While some of these materials have been transcribed and are available online, the real treat here is the archived editions of the Miller Center's Forum Program. While there are over 1900 programs available dating back to the start of the Forums in 1977, only the last one hundred or so can be viewed online here. There are some real gems here, including panel discussions on such topics as civil renewal and the legacy of Sandra Day O'Connor.

Architecture of the Getty Center  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Created by Charles Rhyne, an emeritus art history Professor at Reed College, this site exploits the power of the Web to, in Professor Rhyne's words "make available many more large, high quality color images than can ever be afforded in print publication, whatever the subject." In fact, there are over 600 images of the Getty Center at the site, taken by Professor Rhyne during trips to the museum, 1997-2000. Rhyne believes in the use of pictures as evidence, and his aim is to provide comprehensive visual documentation of the Getty Center for study by students and faculty. All of the pictures are dated, and users can approach via two routes: an Image Survey, starting at the entrance and going through the museum, or by selecting images from categories that include locations on a map and thematic groupings. In addition to serving architectural study purposes, the site also presents a huge number of quality images that are a pleasure to behold.

CNC electrical discharge machining centers  

SciTech Connect

Computer numerical control (CNC) electrical discharge machining (EDM) centers were investigated to evaluate the application and cost effectiveness of establishing this capability at Allied-Signal Inc., Kansas City Division (KCD). In line with this investigation, metal samples were designed, prepared, and machined on an existing 15-year-old EDM machine and on two current technology CNC EDM machining centers at outside vendors. The results were recorded and evaluated. The study revealed that CNC EDM centers are a capability that should be established at KCD. From the information gained, a machine specification was written and a shop was purchased and installed in the Engineering Shop. The older machine was exchanged for a new model. Additional machines were installed in the Tool Design and Fabrication and Precision Microfinishing departments. The Engineering Shop machine will be principally used for the following purposes: producing deep cavities in small corner radii, machining simulated casting models, machining difficult-to-machine materials, and polishing difficult-to-hand polish mold cavities. 2 refs., 18 figs., 3 tabs.
