An improved manual method for NOx emission measurement by L. A Dee( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current manual no (x) sampling and analysis method was evaluated. Improved time-integrated sampling and rapid analysis methods were developed. In the new method, the sample gas is drawn through a heated bed of uniquely active, crystalline, Pb02 where no (x) is quantitatively absorbed. Nitrate ion is later extracted with water and the concentration subsequently determined by a no3 ( - ) selective ion electrode. A simple selective precipitation eliminates electrode interferences derived from Pb02 absorption of other combustion products such as hc1, so (x), hf, and co. Field tests were conducted at various stationary source sites and the data are presented herein. (Ntis)

Antiproton annihilation propulsion by Robert L Forward( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antiproton annihilation propulsion is a new form of space propulsion, where milligrams of antimatter are used to heat tons of reaction fluid to high temperatures. The hot reaction fluid is exhausted from a nozzle to produce high thrust at high specific impulse. This study was to determine the physical, engineering, and economic feasibility of antiproton annihilation propulsion. The conclusion of the study is that antiproton propulsion is feasible, but expensive. Because the low mass of the antimatter fuel more than compensates for its high price, comparative mission studies show that antimatter fuel can be cost effective in space, where even normal chemical fuel is expensive because its mass must be lifted into orbit before it can be used. Antiproton annihilation propulsion is mission enabling, in that it allows missions to be performed that cannot be performed by any other propulsion system.

Accident management orientation guide by Deborah K Shaver( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Accident Management Orientation Guide identifies the guidelines needed for mitigating the hazards associated with a hazardous materials (HM) in-service railroad derailment and a HM yard accident. The guide addresses all phases of on-scene emergency response operations from initial notification of emergency response personnel through departure from the accident scene of the cleanup/disposal teams, and resumption of normal operations. Examples of programmed decision-scenarios for handling HM rail derailments and yard accidents are included

Research and development of an automatic borane monitor / prepared by the IIT Research Institute; Robert S. Braman, author by Robert S Braman( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A portable, continuous automatic flame emission pentaborane-in-air monitor has been developed having a sensitivity of 10 parts per billion. The technique has been found to be comparatively interference free and to be unaffected by momentary high concentrations of volatile materials. Details of the instrumentation and electronics developments and details of calibration and interference tests are given. (Author)
Identification of exhaust species from the combustion of lm and lmh fuels by William H McLain( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second report of a twelve-month research program being conducted to study the metastable chemical species produced in boron fueled rocket plumes. Experimental studies of boron-fueled, air-augmented propellant systems indicate that metastable species are formed in the condensate fraction of the propellant stream. X-ray and differential scanning calorimetric analyses of the condensate fraction indicate the presence of one or more metastable intermediates. X-ray analysis shows a clearly defined crystallographic species exists in addition to the expected boron oxide and boron nitride. Differential scanning calorimetric analysis of the condensates formed during combustion of boron fuels show a relatively complex exothermic behavior between 298 and 1000 C. This indicates the presence of one or more species that have been quenched in a metastable condition. The infrared spectra of the plume emission for pentaborane fueled studies show chemiluminescence in the 5.3 - 5.8 micron region of the infrared. Similar chemiluminescence was not observed in the infrared for boron slurries, possibly indicating a different reaction mechanism. (Author)

Solar Thermal Propulsion: An Investigation of Solar Radiation Absorption in a Working Fluid by Frank J Perry( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The objective of this solar thermal propulsion study was to examine the state of the science of direct absorption of solar radiation into a working fluid for use in propulsive devices. In particular, the absorption characteristics of alkali seeded hydrogen gas were investigated. Because of obvious parallels, the laser propulsion literature was reviewed as well as the solar propulsion literature. The investigation also covered peripheral areas such as aerodynamic windows and alkali/hydrogen mixing techniques. This report presents the important details from the existing information with an extensive list of references included. Recommendations for future theoretical and experimental Air Force research were made based upon the data uncovered. Topics addressed include: Absorption Coefficients, Solar Radiation Absorption, Hydrogen-Alkali Absorption, Laser Propulsion, and Aerodynamic Windows
