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 inspection92ocn068494641com20041.00DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL CATALYST FOR NO DECOMPOSITIONAir 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 current reporting period first the GC-MS system was calibrated. Then 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 C81ocn017345779visu19670.35La Presencia africana en HispanoaméricaHistoryInstructor & Student guides inside video case (5 pages)81ocn021961401visu19880.47L'Afrique Noire FrancophoneThe political geography and socio-economic problems of French-speaking West and Central Africa are presented in a format suitable for use in beginning and intermediate French classes82ocn068498480com19991.00INVESTIGATION OF MIXED METAL SORBENTSimultaneous 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 mixtures71ocn047441763book20000.592000 Langley aerospace research summer scholars program (LARSS) : technical reports52ocn727204010com19911.00Improved pyrolysis submodel for the Wen Fixed-Bed Gasifier Program. Final reportA 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 environment821ocn787879642book20120.56Burrell, Reuben VOne shot : a selection of photographs by Reuben V.
