A continuation of the study in the field of fluid seals for high-speed rotating equipment by R. E Chapel( Book )

2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a continued surveillance of technical literature, vendor information and analysis of various fluid seal problems, the fluid seal problem in general seems to be reaching a point of status quo. Research is being continued on seal applications involving super parameter requirements, rotating speed, pressure, temperature, and special fluids, but the applications for the majority of aircraft accessory situations seems to be fairly well solved. Speeds of 25,000 to 40,000 rmp, pressures as high as 300 psi, and conventional fluids, such as hydraulic fluid, jet engine fuel, seem t offer little problem in sealing with present day seal designs.

An estimate of the cost of electricity production from hot-dry rock by K. G Pierce( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper gives an estimate of the cost to produce electricity from hot-dry rock (HDR). Employment of the energy in HDR for the production of electricity requires drilling multiple wells from the surface to the hot rock, connecting the wells through hydraulic fracturing, and then circulating water through the fracture system to extract heat from the rock. The basic HDR system modeled in this paper consists of an injection well, two production wells, the fracture system (or HDR reservoir), and a binary power plant. Water is pumped into the reservoir through the injection well where it is heated and then recovered through the production wells. Upon recovery, the hot water is pumped through a heat exchanger transferring heat to the binary, or working, fluid in the power plant. The power plant is a net 5.1-MW[sub e] binary plant employing dry cooling. Make-up water is supplied by a local well. In this paper, the cost of producing electricity with the basic system is estimated as the sum of the costs of the individual parts. The effects on cost of variations to certain assumptions, as well as the sensitivity of costs to different aspects of the basic system, are also investigated
Supply of geothermal power from hydrothermal sources : a study of the cost of power in 20 and 40 years by Susan Petty( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study develops estimates for the amount of hydrothermal geothermal power that could be on line in 20 and 40 years. This study was intended to represent a snapshot'' in 20 and 40 years of the hydrothermal energy available for electric power production should a market exist for this power. This does not represent the total or maximum amount of hydrothermal power, but is instead an attempt to estimate the rate at which power could be on line constrained by the exploration, development and support infrastructure available to the geothermal industry, but not constrained by the potential market for power
