The Reactivity Effects of Nuclide Buildup and Decay During Long-Term Fuel Storage

Long Term Stability of Natural Glasses

Active Versus Passive Radon Monitoring at the Yucca Mountain Site

Above and Below Boiling Thermal Loading Strategies for Large Waste Packages

A Symbol-form Mapping Framework for Conceptual Design Support
Engineering design involves a strong notion of the geometric structure of design artifacts. Research efforts to support the geometric aspects of design have concentrated on the representation...

Settlement of Dynamically Compacted Deposits
This paper compares predicted and measured settlements of deposits that were densified by means of dynamic compaction. Settlement records are presented for sites consisting of old, midage,...

Plain flooding: near field and far field simulations
The paper deals with the problems met in the attempt of simulating the plain submersion produced by a levee breaking in the inertia dominated region (near field), scaling with the typical...

2DV Circulation-Pattern: Wave Decay and Undertow Modelling with Nearcir Code

Nondestructive Evaluation of Wood

Recent Assessment and Decontamination Studies of Contaminated Sediments in the New York/New Jersey Harbor

WAPPA Modeling of Post-Emplacement Performance of the AECL HLNW Package
Environment Canada (EC) is anticipating, in the near future, a review of the EIS document released by AECL which addresses the performance of their HLNW disposal concept. This paper presents...

The Analysis of Repository-Heat-Driven Hydrothermal Flow at Yucca Mountain
To safely and permanently store high-level nuclear waste, the potential Yucca Mountain repository site must mitigate the release and transport of radionuclides for tens of thousands of...

Optimal Processor Mapping for Massively Parallel Finite Element Computations
The exploitation of massively parallel computer for finite element analysis requires efficient usage of processors as well fast speed. For example, the efficiency of a parallel matrix...

Parallel-Adaptive Finite Element Analysis on a Transputer Cluster
This paper describes a parallel-adaptive finite element approach on a parallel transputer cluster of the MIMD type. The analysis is controlled by a special error indicator. In comparison...

Production and Decomposition of Spartina patens in a Degrading Coastal Marsh
Production and decomposition rates were calculated for Spartina patens in a mesohaline coastal marsh in Louisiana. Production was estimated to be 800 g m-2 ur-1 during 1991 and 1,696 g...

Mixing Character and Meandering Mechanism of a Plane Jet Bounded in a Shallow Water Layer
A plane jet in a shallow water layer is characterized by the jet width b1/2 much larger than the water depth h at large downstream distances x/h...

Trenchless Diversity Fuels Growth of Construction Activities
This paper describes a variety of trenchless technology methods of reconstructing America's decaying pipeline infrastructure by using minimum and /or 'no-dig processes'. The decay of our...

Aspects of Parallel Processing in Reservoir Simulation
Vectorization techniques have proved to be extremely effective for large-scale reservoir simulations. Parallel capabilities hold even greater potential for these enormous problems. Domain...

Orbital Construction of a NTR Mars Transfer Vehicle
This paper examines a reference Nuclear Thermal Mars Transfer Vehicle (NTMTV) in terms of on-orbit construction. The identification of subassemblies, payload manifesting, on-orbit connections,...

Space Habitat Contaminant Growth Models—Part II
This paper reports on the continuation of work being done at NASA's Center for Space Environmental Health (CSEH) at the University of Colorado at Boulder on contaminant growth modelling...
