Guideway and Conductor Rail Heating for a Winter Environment
The power and signal conducting rails are maintained using self-limiting heat trace cable in combination with an inherently protected rail. The cable's high inrush power along...

Design Verification of HVAC Duct Turning Vanes in Nuclear Power Plants
HVAC ducts in nuclear power plants utilize short radius elbow construction with turning vanes to minimize the space requirement for duct work and to reduce flow losses in the elbows. Turning...

Evaluation of the Ultimate Pressure Capacity of Rectangular HVAC Ducts for Nuclear Power Plants
Structural design criteria are presently based on the AISI Code which limits the duct panel width-to-thickness ratio to a maximum of 500 and the maximum height-to-thickness ratio to 200,...
