Short-term evaluation of a bridge cable using acoustic emission sensors by Devendra S Parmar ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Varina-Enon Bridge carries I-295 across the James River and crosses over the shipping channel that leads to the Richmond (Virginia) Marine Terminal. The bridge is a cable-stayed bridge that was opened to traffic in July 1990. It has 150 ft of vertical navigational clearance and 630 ft of horizontal navigational clearance. The overall bridge length is 4,686 ft. The bridge has six lanes (three each way) with full right and left shoulders. This study used acoustic emission (AE) to assess the condition of strands by examining for active defects (such as corrosion, crack expansion and rubbing, wire breaks, and similar active defects) on a single stay-cable, from anchorage point to anchorage point, of the Varina-Enon Bridge. Testing was performed over short durations of time during periods that included low traffic volumes (acoustically quiet) and high traffic volumes (acoustically noisy). In addition, computer software was used to determine the source and location of the acoustic event. The most significant finding was that AE events were being generated inside the pylon in the saddle region. Further, although AE responses from the stay-cable did not contain any signatures of rubbing from previously broken cable and/or breaking during the testing period, AE signals were detected, possibly because of higher winds or blowing debris striking the cable/anchorage region. The study recommends that the Virginia Department of Transportation's Richmond District Bridge Division measure and map the cracks in the northern and southern stay-cable pylons of the bridge; evaluate the northern pylon saddle regions using AE and determine which areas show the greatest acoustical activity; evaluate the stay-cable anchorage regions more closely using AE; and determine the source of the AE signal that was detected during this study. Finally, the anchorage regions should be evaluated, and VDOT should consider using AE periodically to evaluate the health of this structure and determine which regions are exhibiting significant AE activity. Regions with elevated AE activity should take precedence over non-active regions during inspection
DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL CATALYST FOR NO DECOMPOSITION ( )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Air pollution arising from the emission of nitrogen oxides as a result of combustion taking place in boilers, furnaces and engines, has increasingly been recognized as a problem. New methods to remove NO(subscript x) emissions significantly and economically must be developed. The current technology for post-combustion removal of NO is the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NO by ammonia or possibly by a hydrocarbon such as methane. The catalytic decomposition of NO to give N₂ will be preferable to the SCR process because it will eliminate the costs and operating problems associated with the use of an external reducing species. The most promising decomposition catalysts are transition metal (especially copper)-exchanged zeolites, perovskites, and noble metals supported on metal oxides such as alumina, silica, and ceria. The main shortcoming of the noble metal reducible oxide (NMRO) catalysts is that they are prone to deactivation by oxygen. It has been reported that catalysts containing tin oxide show oxygen adsorption behavior that may involve hydroxyl groups attached to the tin oxide. This is different than that observed with other noble metal-metal oxide combinations, which have the oxygen adsorbing on the noble metal and subsequently spilling over to the metal oxide. This observation leads one to believe that the Pt/SnO₂ catalysts may have a potential as NO decomposition catalysts in the presence of oxygen. This prediction is also supported by some preliminary data obtained for NO decomposition on a Pt/SnO₂ catalyst in the PI's laboratory. The main objective of the proposed research is the evaluation of the Pt/SnO₂ catalysts for the decomposition of NO in simulated power plant stack gases with particular attention to the resistance to deactivation by O₂, CO₂, and elevated temperatures. Therefore, it is proposed to perform temperature programmed desorption (TPD) and temperature programmed reaction (TPRx) studies on Pt/SnO₂ catalysts having different noble metal concentrations and pretreated under different conditions. It is also proposed to perform NO decomposition tests in a laboratory-size packed-bed reactor to obtain long-term deactivation data. In the previous reporting period the GC-MS system was calibrated and the TPD runs for the 15% Pt/SnO₂ catalyst after treatment with NO and subsequent treatments with NO and O₂ were done. For these runs the catalyst was pretreated with dry helium for 2 hours at 40 C. The Temperature Programmed Reaction (TPRx) of NO and NO+O₂ mixtures on the catalysts containing 15% Pt and 10% Pt were also performed. In this reporting period some TPRx runs with the catalysts containing 15% and 10% Pt were repeated due to the uncertainty of the oxygen content of the feed
Hot gas desulfurization with oxides of zinc, iron, and vanadium ( )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The objective of this study is to develop an improved sorbent which can reduce H₂S levels up to 1 ppmv or less, which can stabilize zinc, and produce economically recoverable amounts of elemental sulfur during regeneration. For this purpose, the desulfurization performance of sorbents prepared by the addition of various amounts of V₂O₅ to the zinc ferrite sorbent is investigated
Hot gas desulfurization with sorbents containing oxides of zinc, iron, vanadium and copper. Quarterly technical progress report ( )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The main objective of this research is to evaluate the desulfurization performance of novel sorbents consisting of different combinations of zinc, iron, vanadium and copper oxides; and to develop a sorbent which can reduce H₂S levels to less than 1 ppmv, which can stabilize zinc, making operations above 650°C possible, and which can produce economically recoverable amounts of elemental sulfur during regeneration. This objective will be accomplished by evaluating the sorbent performance using fixed-bed and TGA experiments supported by sorbent characterization at various reaction extents. The work done in the fourth quarter can be summarized as follows: (1) Calibration of the gas chromatograph for low and high H₂S and SO₂ is completed. (2) The determination of surface areas and densities of the promoted sorbents is completed. (3) Preliminary screening of the promoted sorbents in the packed bed reactor has started
INVESTIGATION OF MIXED METAL SORBENT ( )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Simultaneous removal of SO₂ and NO(subscript x) using a regenerable solid sorbent will constitute an important improvement over the use of separate processes for the removal of these two pollutants from stack gases and possibly eliminate several shortcomings of the individual SO₂ and NO(subscript x) removal operations. The work done at PETC and the DOE-funded investigation of the investigators on the sulfation and regeneration of alumina-supported cerium oxide sorbents have shown that they can perform well at relatively high temperatures (823-900 K) as regenerable desulfurization sorbents. Survey of the recent literature shows that addition of copper oxide to ceria lowers the sulfation temperature of ceria down to 773 K, sulfated ceria-based sorbents can function as selective SCR catalysts even at elevated temperatures, SO₂ can be directly reduced to sulfur by CO on CuO-ceria catalysts, and ceria-based catalysts may have a potential for selective catalytic reduction of NO(subscript x) by methane. These observations indicate a possibility of developing a ceria-based sorbent/catalyst which can remove both SO₂ and NO(subscript x) from flue gases within a relatively wide temperature window, produce significant amounts of elemental sulfur during regeneration, and use methane for the selective catalytic reduction of NO(subscript x). The objective of this research is to conduct kinetic and parametric studies of the selective catalytic reduction of NO(subscript x) with NH₃ and CH₄ over alumina-supported cerium oxide and copper oxide-cerium oxide sorbent/catalysts; investigate SO₂ removal at lower temperatures by supported copper oxide-cerium oxide sorbents; and investigate the possibility of elemental sulfur production during regeneration with CO or with CH₄-air mixtures
Improved pyrolysis submodel for the Wen Fixed-Bed Gasifier Program. Final report ( )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A generalized model for devolatilization of large coal particles typically encountered in a fixed or moving bed gasifier has been developed. Two models were developed, one which does not consider diffusion of the volatile matter from the coal during devolatilization and the other which does consider diffusion of volatile species through the coal matrix. Both models predict a time-temperature history of the particle in a convective heat transfer environment
