Investigation of defects in ice using positron annihilation (project pan)( Book )

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

Water substance, at temperatures below and just above its melting point, is not a pure liquid or solid as classical approaches would suggest. Rather, it is evident that at temperatures just above the melting point the liquid phase contains molecular groupings which, because of temporary bonding, have more ice-like than liquid-like characteristics. Similarly, at temperatures colder than zero degrees Celsius liquid-like clusters of molecules exist on a statistical basis. Indeed, a three-component behavior is adduced, the relative importances of the three as controlling phenomena being different as temperature is altered. Because electronic bonds in hydrogen are involved in these interior changes of state, the phenomenon is amenable to study by the method of positron annihilation. In such an investigation, the existence of temporarily broken electron bonds (defects) is statistically assessable because the (defect) electrons are more likely than bound ones to combine with positrons in the annihilation process. This report provides a theoretical background and outlines and experimental attack on the problem of this defect structure in liquid water and ice. (Author)
Outer-space environment models for use with space vehicle simulators by W. A Livingston( Book )

2 editions published between 1961 and 1962 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A summary of the important aspects of the environment in cislunar space important to the simulation of space vehicles is presented. Models of this environment are developed, and estimates of the required parameters are made on the basis of currently available data. These models have been constructed with an emphasis toward maximum simplicity of representation, in order that the computations be compatible with real time simulation of space vehicles
