The DOE Waste Acceptance Process for the Vitrified High-Level Waste Form
Borosilicate glass from Defense HLW producers will be emplaced in the civilian radioactive waste repository. Vitrified HLW will be under production before the repository license application...

Fission Product Distribution in Nuclear Test Cavities/Chimneys
When a nuclear device is exploded, residual radioactive material is distributed throughout the resulting underground cavity and rubble chimney. Refractory materials are more concentrated...

The Effect of Gamma Irradiation on the Volatility and Redox State of Simulated DWPF High-Level Nuclear Waste Glasses
Gamma-induced volatility of simulated DWPF high-level nuclear waste glasses is highly dependent upon the redox state of the glass. For oxidized glasses with an Fe2+/(Fe2+...

Thermal-Hydraulic Analyses of Molten Glass in a Joule-Heated Melter
Physical modelling using glycerine and three-dimensional mathematical modelling were executed to study temperature and flow profiles of molten glass in the melter for the vitrification...

Evaluation of Borosilicate Glass as a High-Level Radioactive Waste Form
The choice of a borosilicate glass as a high-level nuclear waste form is evaluated base on observations of natural and artifical glass hydration and reaction, experimental results of glass...

Characterization of Man-Made Vitreous Fibers by Image Analysis
This paper deals with the characterization of man-made vitreous fibers (MMVF), seen as an application of the techniques of image analysis and mathematical morphology. We present the whole...

Composites Performance in the Infrastructure
Fiberglass reinforced plastics (FRP) composites have been used in demanding structural applications, mostly for special corrosion resistant construction products, for several decades....

Experimental Investigation of Self-Tapping Fasteners for Attachment of Corrugated Cladding Panels to Pultruded Fiber-Reinforced Plastics Beams in Industrial Building Construction
This paper describes an experimental investigation of self-tapping fasteners for the attachment of corrugated fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) cladding panels to pultruded FRP beams. Although...

Bond Strength of Straight GFRP Rebars
An overview of a study on bond of straight Glass-fiber-reinforced-plastic (GFRP) rebars to concrete is presented. The 54 specimens to be tested include several variables, such as the mode...

Glass-Fiber Reinforcing Rod: Characterization and Application to Concrete Structures and Grouted Anchors
This paper presents the physical and mechanical characteristics of a new glass-fiber reinforcing rod which was developed to be used as a rebar for concrete structures or a tendon for grouted...

Nonprestressed and Prestressed FRP Sheets as External Reinforcement of Wood Members
The paper presents a summary of an analytical and experimental investigation of a new form of wood construction involving external bonding of thin fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) sheets...
