    la fuerza constante. Al considerar los distintos aspectos que concurren para llegar a una forma constructiva real que satisfaga a las actuales condiciones funcionales y estéticas, el autor se extiende en consideraciones personales aplicables dentro del ámbito nacional polaco, pero dando carácter de universalidad al principio técnico que debe dirigir la solución racional de la forma como parte integrante de la estructura. Las realizaciones que acompañan e ilustran este trabajo son obras polacas de indudable interés constructivo, en las que se ha empleado el criterio de la constancia de la fuerza. Termina el autor su trabajo fijando clara y sencillamente toda su teoría en una fórmula práctica que ha de observarse para llegar racionalmente a la forma: la constancia de la fuerza en los distintos elementos estructurales.

    Full Text Available En nuestro centro asistencial se han atendido en el año 2012, 1.304 primeras asistencias, de las cuales 85 fueron consideradas no accidente de trabajo/enfermedad profesional. Hemos elegido al azar 10 casos clínicos donde existió discrepancia por parte del paciente cuando los servicios médicos determinaron que la patología que sufría el paciente no era accidente de trabajo y/o agravamiento por lo que se derivó a su médico de atención primaria quien emitió parte de baja por contingencias comunes y se inició determinación de contingencias ante el INSS por parte del Servicio Andaluz de Salud. En 7 de los casos existió discrepancia entre los inspectores médicos del INSS y los servicios médicos de la mutua, en 3 de ellos se consideraron enfermedad común al existir enfermedad preexistente. De los casos analizados comprobamos que no existían criterios unificados, claros y precisos entre enfermedad preexistente, agravamiento y/o accidente de trabajo dependiendo del médico evaluador y/o médico de la mutua determinar si era o no accidente de trabajo. Si no existían antecedentes médicos por el SAS y/o bajas previas por ITCC por la misma patología o similar el INSS determino siempre la contingencia como accidente de trabajo. El tiempo medio de los 10 casos analizados entre el inicio de la determinación de contingencias y la comunicación de la resolución por parte del INSS fue de 240 días. De los 7 casos que fueron accidente de trabajo, 6 seguían en situación de baja laboral y un caso se encontraba curado e incorporado a su puesto de trabajo.

    Full Text Available La interoperabilidad se considera fundamental en los sistemas e-learning. Han surgido estándares basados en XML que facilitan métodos comunes de descripción, identificación y búsqueda de LO desarrollados bajo diversos formatos y plataformas, que garantizan su reusabilidad. En este ámbito se está imponiendo el Estándar SCORM desarrollado por Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL basado en propuestas de organizaciones como IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC, Learning Object Metadata Working Group y IMS Global Learning Consortium. Las plataformas e-learning más modernas utilizan los estándares antes mencionados para lograr la interoperabilidad entre los distintos sistemas, sin embargo existe mucho contenido útil, disponible bajo diversos entornos, que no está estructurado según los estándares, lo cual provoca serias dificultades para que puedan ser reutilizados. Por tal motivo se hace imprescindible la búsqueda de alternativas que permitan emp aquetar dichos contenidos de modo que puedan ser importados y utilizados en las diversas plataformas existentes. Se propone un procedimiento automatizado que permite construir Bibliotecas Digitales compuestas por Objetos de aprendizaje a partir de estructuras de contenidos desarrolladas previamente. Se han desarrollado herramientas que facilitan este proceso. Se ha aplicado a contenidos desarrollados sobre una plataforma para la enseñanza del español, obteniéndose como resultado una Biblioteca Digital Multimedia de LO.

    Full Text Available El objetivo de esta presentación es discutir algunos aspectos estructurales de la frontera y someter a discusión la estrategia de investigación del Departamento de Estudios Económicos de CEFNOMEX. Aquí se explica cómo la frontera norte cuenta con una estructura comercial dual con patrones variables de consumo de servicios en Estados Unidos, tales como los educacionales, médicos, asistenciales, etc., que han afectado a la creación de una infraestructura local, y que la zona fronteriza del norte de México exhibe importantes distorsiones estructurales que deben estudiarse para entender sus funcionamiento económico. Es importante mejorar la base informativa con recolección directa. La investigación económica de la región requiere tanto del estudio de sus instituciones, como del monitoreo constante y cuidadoso de sus signos vitales. Una estrategia adecuada de investigación debe combinar ambos y aprovechar las complementariedades de los dos tipos de estudio.

    Full Text Available Este estudio buscó identificar la estructura de socialización de una subcultura urbana con la medición de indicadores estructurales de su red social e identificación de subagrupaciones. Se empleó el instrumento Arizona Social Support Interview Schedule (ISSIS con 11 miembros de la subcultura roqueros. Se procesaron los datos mediante el análisis de redes sociales (ARS con el software Ucinet, para detectar conjuntos de actores con el procedimiento de conglomerados jerárquicos; y los gráficos de la red se crearon con NetDraw. Se identificaron niveles moderados de indicadores estructurales y las agrupaciones presentaron un número amplio de actores según el criterio de atracción por similaridad. Los subgrupos en la red fueron escasos, lo que muestra a la subcultura como una unidad social cuya integración se da por vinculaciones estrechas entre sus miembros.

    Full Text Available El objetivo del presente artículo se enmarca en la revisión de la teoría y la implementación numérica de uno de los métodos numéricos sin malla usados para la solución de problemas de tipo estructural, el método de los elementos naturales (MEN, junto con la contrastación de los resultados obtenidos para dos problemas estructurales elástico-lineales en dos dimensiones con la solución analítica exacta y la aproximada por el método de los elementos finitos (MEF. Se describe la técnica de interpolación usada por el MEN para obtener las funciones de forma y se presen-tan las características más importantes del método en su forma estándar. Se presentan los resultados de dos simula-ciones de problemas estructurales realizadas usando un código escrito en Matlab 6.5 para la solución de ecuacio-nes diferenciales de elasticidad lineal en dominios bidimensionales. Se concluye que el método de los elementos naturales es similar al de los elementos finitos en cuanto a estabilidad y convergencia, con la ventaja de que la ma-lla es generada automáticamente y la no dependencia de la solución aproximada con la distribución de la nube de puntos que define la geometría.

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available En esta ponencia se plantean puntos de reflexión sobre el reto que supone la aplicación de métodos de innovación en el campo de las matemáticas en general, y en particular en los nuevos planes de estudio de los grados de Empresa. Hasta ahora, la enseñanza de la mayoría de materias se centraba casi exclusivamente en la transmisión de conocimientos, especificados en los contenidos de un programa. En el futuro inmediato, los contenidos deben perder importancia en favor de las competencias. Pero el dilema que ya existía en torno a la pregunta matemáticas instrumentales contra matemáticas estructurales y formativas vuelve a aparecer al introducir el asunto de las competencias. ¿Hemos de dar a nuestros alumnos únicamente destrezas de cálculo siguiendo el esquema que han venido siguiendo desde el bachiller, o, sin prescindir de estas, también hay que introducirlos en el mundo más rico y complicado del pensamiento lógico-formal? En este artículo ofrecemos algunas consideraciones que esperamos ayuden a la reflexión y elaboración de mejores respuestas a esta pregunta.

    Full Text Available El uso de la modelación mediante ecuaciones estructurales ha sido empleado de manera amplia en las áreas de las ciencias del comportamiento, mercadotecnia, preferencias del consumidor y servicio al cliente. Sin embargo, existe poca bibliografía que muestre su uso en áreas de manufactura, calidad o mejora continua. El presente artículo presenta la aplicación exitosa, estadísticamente significativa y relevante de ecuaciones estructurales en una investigación realizada en plantas de manufactura de Apodaca, México. En ese estudio se analizan aspectos de manufactura y mejora continua y su impacto en la eficiencia operacional de las plantas, y se presentan los resultados de la aplicación en las áreas mencionadas, sugiriendo que las ecuaciones estructurales pueden ser utilizadas  en distintas áreas con la misma eficacia y confiabilidad que otras técnicas estadísticas de análisis multivariado.

Metodología: Se formula un modelo econométrico empleando mínimos cuadrados ordinarios para estudiar la aplicación de las leyes de Kaldor para el caso Antioqueño. En su aplicación, por un lado, se analiza el comportamiento histórico del PIB total y del PIB por sectores, así como información sobre la producción bruta, empleo y activos fijos de la Encuesta Anual Manufacturera. Por el otro lado, el comportamiento sectorial de Antioquia, se basa en la relación sectorial y de efectos estructurales en el PIB total, a través de comparativos de las tasas de crecimiento y de las participaciones de los sectores en el PIB. Hallazgos: El sector industrial Antioqueño ha reducido su participación en el Producto Interno Bruto de Antioquia, mientras que los servicios han ganado espacio. Así mismo, a partir de la evidencia empírica se reconoce a la actividad industrial como el motor del crecimiento, dado que la elasticidad de este sector está por encima del 40%. El análisis sectorial del Antioquia durante el periodo 1980-2005 ha revelado que la actividad industrial está estrechamente vinculada con la actividad comercial, y se puede reconocer a este sector como otra fuente de crecimiento.   Abstract Objective: This article analyzes the participation of the economic sectors (industrial, commerce, agriculture, mining and real estate sector in the total GDP of Antioquia in the period 1980-2005, and reviews the application of the first and second law of Kaldor in the department, during the mentioned period.

Inicialmente se realizaron transformaciones del campo gravimétrico (Continuación Ascendente y cálculos de gradientes horizontales y se representaron en mapas de isolineas y de relieve sombreado. Se establecieron nuevas regularidades estructurales de la cuenca que evidencian el marcado control tectónico de la región. La mayoría de los sistemas de fallas conocidos se relacionan con alineaciones del campo gravimétrico, de igual manera existen zonas alineadas, principalmente de direcciones noroeste-sureste y noreste-suroeste, que no se asocian a estos sistemas, y que pueden constituir zonas de fallas no reportadas. La presencia de grandes zonas anómalas positivas debajo de las secuencias cuaternarias indica la existencia en profundidad de secuencias vulcanógenas-sedimentarias o vulcanógenas depositadas durante la actividad volcánica cretácica. Se define una zona de altos gradientes con dirección noreste-suroeste que sugiere el límite entre las secuencias plegadas y sobrecorridas del paleomargen pasivo y el hemigraben de la Cuenca Central. Las rocas de bajas densidades alcanzan grandes profundidades hacia el extremo noroccidental y central de la región, mientras que al occidente alcanzan grandes profundidades las de altas densidades. Los elementos antes señalados permitirán una mejor planificación de investigaciones geológicas en la región.

En este marco, se logró controlar la situación dehiperinflación, acceder al crédito externo, equilibrar el gasto público, promover lainversión de capital y activar un ciclo de crecimiento económico. Como consecuenciade este proceso, si bien descendió inicialmente la pobreza, creció el desempleo,aumentó la precariedad laboral y se ampliaron las brechas de desigualdad social.

    Full Text Available La falta de series macroeconómicas históricas para las economías regionales dificul-ta la profundización en el conocimiento de los factores explicativos de su evolución económica. En este artículo se utiliza una serie anual del producto interno bruto, estimada por la vía de la oferta, para Andalucía a lo largo del siglo XX. A partir de estas cifras se establece los cortes estructurales que se producen en esa etapa y que contribuyen a explicar el atraso económico relativo andaluz. Se encuentran tres fechas significativas de corte y los resultados obtenidos permiten establecer que la tasa de crecimiento económico medio anual del producto interno bruto al costo de los factores (PIBcf per capita fue igual a 1.64%, lo que supone un diferencial de más de medio punto porcentual respecto al 2.20% de España.

    Full Text Available Not available.Se presentan las propiedades de los suelos granulares estabilizados in situ mediante dos «inyecciones químicas» estructurales, de base silicato sódico, utilizadas por primera vez en la Ingeniería Geotécnica por el autor, y se describen las primeras obras importantes ejecutadas con ellas, en Milán, Barcelona y Madrid, Una de estas soluciones químicas, que produce un gel duro, y que utiliza básicamente como reactivo una mezcla de formamida-acetato de etilo, soluble en el sistema líquido, ha sido tratada ampliamente en el reciente congreso sobre inyecciones, organizado por la ASCE, de Nueva Orleans (Febrero 1982 y se consideran sus resultados en este trabajo. Se describe la utilización para la estabilización de suelos, de otro tipo de solución, también de base silicato, que expansiona durante el proceso de gelificación, y que es compatible con la primeramente indicada, es decir, que se pueden obtener productos con propiedades intermedias. Se pone especial énfasis en la necesidad de un mejor conocimiento de los procesos físico-químicos y reológicos en estos sistemas y de la influencia del factor tiempo sobre su estabilidad y comportamiento intrínsecos y su relación con el medio, que se debieran interpretar a partir de su estructura químico-molecular, de la que dependen también sus propiedades mecánicas.

    Full Text Available INTRODUCCIÓN. El objetivo de la presente publicación fue comunicar los casos detectados en nuestro estudio de anomalías estructurales de la glándula tiroidea en pacientes que recibieron radioterapia para el tratamiento de tumores malignos de cabeza y cuello. MÉTODOS. Se realizó un estudio descriptivo de corte transversal para determinar la prevalencia de alteraciones estructurales de la glándula tiroides en 43 pacientes sobrevivientes de tumores malignos de cabeza y cuello, que habían recibido radioterapia y que fueron atendidos en los Hospitales Pediátricos Docentes «William Soler» y «Juan Manuel Márquez» en un período de 10 años (1990 a 2000. RESULTADOS. La alteración estructural de la glándula tiroides más frecuente fue la fibrosis glandular (18,5 %, seguida del adenoma tiroideo y de quistes simples de la glándula (11,1 % respectivamente. Hubo 2 casos de carcinoma diferenciado de la glándula tiroides (7,4 % y uno de lesión mixta adenofolicular (3,7 %. La citología aspirativa con aguja fina permitió la detección de la mayoría de estas lesiones y posibilitó, guiada por ecografía, la detección de lesiones intraparenquimatosas de la glándula. El tratamiento de las alteraciones encontradas fue quirúrgico y se practicó tiroidectomía total a los dos pacientes con carcinoma diferenciado de la glándula tiroides, tiroidectomía subtotal a los tres pacientes con quistes de la glándula y adenomas tiroideos. En los casos de fibrosis glandular se detectó hipofunción tiroidea concomitante, por tanto se administró tratamiento sustitutivo con levotiroxina. CONCLUSIONES. La citología aspirativa con aguja fina guiada mediante ecografía de la glándula tiroides permitió diagnosticar alteraciones estructurales no detectadas en el examen físico. La patología maligna más irradiada correspondió a los linfomas no Hodgkin. Cuanto mayor es la dosis de irradiación, mayor es la patología tiroidea.INTRODUCTION: The aim of

    Full Text Available Introducción. La entrada de rotavirus a las células parece estar mediado por interacciones secuenciales entre las proteínas estructurales virales y algunas moléculas de la superficie celular. Sin embargo, los mecanismos por los cuales el rotavirus infecta la célula diana aún no se comprenden bien. Existe alguna evidencia que muestra que las proteínas estructurales de rotavirus VP5* y VP8* interactúan con algunas moléculas de la superficie celular. La disponibilidad de las proteínas estructurales de rotavirus recombinantes en cantidad suficiente se ha convertido en un aspecto importante para la identificación de las interacciones específicas de los receptores virus-célula durante los eventos tempranos del proceso infeccioso. Objetivo. El propósito del presente trabajo es realizar un análisis de las interacciones entre las proteínas estructurales de rotavirus recombinante VP5*, VP8* y VP6, y las proteínas celulares Hsc70 y PDI utilizando sus versiones recombinantes purificadas. Materiales y métodos. Las proteínas recombinantes de rotavirus VP5* y VP8* y las proteínas recombinantes celulares Hsc70 y PDI se expresaron en E. coli BL21 (DE3, mientras que VP6 se expresó en células MA104 con virus vaccinia recombinante transfectada. La interacción entre el rotavirus y las proteínas celulares se estudió mediante ELISA, co-inmunoprecipitación y SDS-PAGE/ Western. Resultados. Las condiciones óptimas para la expresión de proteínas recombinantes se determinaron y se generaron anticuerpos contra ellas. Los resultados sugirieron que las proteínas virales rVP5* y rVP6 interactúan con Hsc70 y PDI in vitro. También se encontró que éstas proteínas virales recombinantes interactúan con Hsc70 en las balsas lipídicas (“Rafts” en un cultivo celular. El tratamiento de las células, ya sea con DLP o rVP6 produjo significativamente la inhibición de la infección por rotavirus. Conclusión. Los resultados permiten concluir que r

    Full Text Available Las aleaciones de alto cromo son empleadas para la fabricación de bolas de molino en industrias de procesamiento de minerales. Los usuarios y fabricantes requieren lograr mejores resultados técnicos-económicos en sus aplicaciones, por lo que necesitan aumentar los conocimientos relacionados con los aspectos estructurales de estos materiales. En este trabajo se realiza una investigación con vistas a establecer relaciones entre la estructura de las aleaciones y su comportamiento ante el impacto repetido que es un fenómeno característico en estos procesos. Se funden bolas con varias aleaciones hipo eutécticas, eutécticas, e hipereutécticas; se prueban en un equipo que simula el impacto repetido. Los resultados permiten comprobar los buenos resultados de aleaciones hipo eutécticas con relaciones de Cr/C altas y a su vez altos contenidos de Cr y de aleaciones eutécticas para menores relaciones de Cr/C y menores contenidos de Cr, en ambos casos los carburos eutécticos son de forma simétrica, regulares y no forman redes continuas de carburos asimétricos bordeando los granos, que presentan peores comportamiento en el impacto repetido y que son el caso de las hipoeutécticas con bajas relaciones Cr/C y las hipereutécticas donde aparecen también grandes carburos primarios.High Chromium alloys are used to manufacture grinding balls for the Industry of Construction Materials. Customers and users need to improve their knowledge about the relationships between microstructure and the parts damage in these alloys to obtain better technical-economics results. In this paper the results of a research to obtain different microstructures of eutectics, hipoeutectics and hipereutectics alloys are presented, searching for the lesser damage in these alloys. These alloys are tested in a repeated impact testing machine that simulate its mechanical behaviour .The results show a good behaviour for hipoeutectic alloys with high relations of Cr/C and high

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: En el presente artículo se recogen las principales reformas estructurales que han tenido lugar en Chile desde 1970 y que constituyen la base de la solidez actual de dicha economía latinoamericana. Se propone una división en períodos en la que se distingue la época del gobierno de la Unidad Popular, el gobierno de la Junta Militar y la transición a la democracia para evaluar los resultados económicos que se registraron a la luz de las distintas estrategias de desarrollo. Las principales reformas que se dieron en el periodo 1970-1973 bajo la "vía chilena hacia el socialismo" fueron la creación del Área de Propiedad social, la profundización de la Reforma Agraria y la nacionalización de la Gran Minería Durante el monetarismo ortodoxo (1974-1982 destacan como principales reformas la liberalización y desregulación de los mercados, la l a ronda de privatizaciones, la apertura comercial, la liberalización financiera y las "siete modernizaciones", todas ellas respaldadas por la ortodoxia de la denominada Escuela de Chicago. Tras la profunda crisis de 1982 que afectó a todo el continente latinoamericano fue necesario replantear el modelo y se introdujeron distintas medidas de carácter neoliberal que consiguieron que fuera posible aprovechar los beneficios de las reformas realizadas con anterioridad. La transición a la democracia constituye un reto para la sociedad chilena, en tanto que contando con las bases de una economía sólida deben incorporarse la visión social y política para que el crecimiento se convierta en desarrollo. En este sentido toma importancia la última estrategia de la CEPAL de "Transformación productiva con equidad".ABSTRACT: In this paper, the main structural reforms are searched, which happened between 1970 and 1995. These are the base of the actual economic framework. The different considered periods are: the "Unidad Popular" government, the military government and the democratic transition. Finally

    Full Text Available Objetivo: describir y analizar los determinantes estructurales y su relación con el índice de COP en países de desarrollo alto, mediano y bajo durante las últimas tres décadas. Materiales y métodos: estudio descriptivo realizado a partir de una revisión de la literatura internacional y nacional en bases de datos y páginas web. Resultados: se encontró un país con índice de COP elevado; un país con índice de COP moderado; 10 países con índice de COP bajo; y 10 países con índice de COP muy bajo. Los países de desarrollo alto y los países de desarrollo bajo se comportan de manera similar en tanto reportan índices de COP inferiores al promedio mundial sugerido por la OMS (2.4. Discusión y conclusiones: se concluye que los valores de COP están asociados fuertemente a factores macroeconómicos, como las políticas y servicios de cuidado de la salud disponibles para la población, más que a la clasificación de desarrollo del Banco Mundial. Los determinantes sociales están directamente relacionados con las políticas estructurales que afectan el bienestar social, la salud y la calidad de vida de la población.

Un total de 12 jugadores, varones de categoría nacional (edad, media ± dt: 16.57  1.51 años participaron de forma voluntaria en el estudio. Veinticuatro horas antes de competir, los sujetos realizaron una prueba máxima e incremental en tapiz rodante, determinándose diferentes parámetros cardiorrespiratorios, como el consumo de oxígeno (VO2 y la frecuencia cardiaca (FC. En la competición se registró el tiempo total de juego (TT, el tiempo real de juego (TR y el tiempo de pausa (TP, contabilizando todos los golpeos efectuados por los sujetos analizados. Además, se obtuvieron los valores relativos al VO2 y FC durante el esfuerzo competitivo. El VO2 en competición alcanzó cifras inferiores al 50% del valor máximo alcanzado en la prueba sobre tapiz, mientras que la FC media representó, aproximadamente, un 74% de la FC máxima alcanzada en la prueba de laboratorio. Por otra parte, el ratio TP:TR fue de 1:0,79 s, existiendo un predominio de los golpeos directos entre los que destaca la volea. Tras la definición de las características estructurales y funcionales del pádel de competición, éstas últimas muy parecidas a las del tenis individual, se posibilita un mejor diseño de los programas de entrenamiento de los jugadores, recomendándose su práctica, además, a un amplio espectro de la población.

Recientemente la literatura científica ha señalado la importancia de comprender las manifestaciones de estigma más allá de las interacciones individuales. Por tal razón, investigaciones recientes en y fuera de Puerto Rico enfatizan la importancia de entender cómo factores socio-estructurales (FSE) influyen en los procesos de estigmatización social. Con el propósito de examinar los FSE que influyen en las manifestaciones de estigma relacionado al VIH/SIDA, realizamos y analizamos nueve grupos focales compuestos por hombres y mujeres en tratamiento para el VIH/SIDA que habían tenido experiencias estigmatizantes. Los participantes identificaron FSE relacionados a las manifestaciones de estigma, tales como el uso de viviendas especializadas, descentralización de los servicios de salud y el desarrollo de protocolos administrativos excluyentes en los servicios de salud. Los resultados demuestran la importancia de considerar los FSE en el desarrollo e implementación de intervenciones dirigidas a la población. PMID:24639599

    Full Text Available El vínculo que se constituye entre profesor y estudiante, que involucra afectos y emociones, es fundamental en el proceso educativo y no está ajeno a elementos sociales, históricos y estructurales que le rodean. Considerando aquello, el propósito de esta investigación es comprender los discursos que los docentes construyen en torno a las condicionantes estructurales del vínculo profesor-estudiante. Para el logro de este objetivo, nos posicionamos desde el enfoque del análisis crítico de discurso y utilizamos dos técnicas para la producción de datos, el grupo focal y la entrevista episódica. Los participantes del estudio fueron docentes pertenecientes a cuatro escuelas secundarias de Santiago de Chile y para el análisis de los datos seguimos el modelo tridimensional propuesto por Norman FAIRCLOUGH. Los principales resultados dan cuenta que en los discursos docentes se logra identificar condicionantes estructurales del vínculo, tales como la institución escolar jerárquica, el modelo educativo agobiante y la sociedad como una estructura que aplasta. No obstante, también encontramos contradicciones y variabilidad discursiva en el posicionamiento del docente que podrían deberse al contexto actual de reformas y movilizaciones sociales por la educación.

La fase de α-Fe se presenta en los tres difractogramas mediante un pico característico cuya  intensidad disminuye al reemplazar el Tb por el Gd, presentándose la menor en x= 0 así mismo se observa un aumento de su ancho atribuible a la presencia de átomos de Gd en lugares propios del Fe. Los espectros Mössbauer (EM fueron ajustados con sextetos, dobletes, singletes y distribuciones de campo hiperfino lo que señala que el orden magnético se ve alterado al sustituir el Tb por el Gd en la composición. Las propiedades magnéticas extrínsecas de la composición en estudio, la caracterizan como materiales magnéticamente semiduros.

  1. Influencia de la relación Ti/N sobre la resistencia a la deformación en caliente y sobre la recristalización estática en aceros estructurales

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Vega, M. I.

    2004-04-01

    Full Text Available To obtain a complete dissolution of the nitrides of titanium (TiN is necessary to reach temperatures close to the melting temperature or even higher temperatures corresponding to the liquid state. For this reason, TiN are good controllers of the austenitic grain size. This characteristic is used in structural steels to control the microestructural evolution in the hot rolling and in heat processes like in the welding in the zone affected thermically (ZAT. However, the quantitative influence of TiN particles on the hot deformation strength and on the static recrystallisation, this latter responsible for the microestructural evolution, is practically unknown. In the present work, the influence of different Ti and N compositions on the hot deformation strength have been studied determining the peak stress of the flow curves and the activation energy. The influence on the static recrystallization have been determined by means of the static recrystallisation fraction versus time and with the activation energy. A precipitate study by means of SEM and TEM was done in order to better understand the influence of the Ti/N ratio of the steels.

    Para conseguir una disolución completa de los nitruros de titanio (TiN es necesario alcanzar temperaturas próximas a la temperatura de fusión o incluso temperaturas superiores correspondientes al estado líquido. Esto hace que los TiN sean buenos controladores del tamaño de grano austenítico. Esta característica es aprovechada en los aceros estructurales para controlar la evolución de la microestructura en todo el proceso de laminación en caliente y en procesos de aporte de calor como la soldadura en la zona afectada térmicamente (ZAT. Sin embargo, es prácticamente desconocida la influencia cuantitativa que ejercen dichas partículas sobre la resistencia en caliente y sobre la cinética de la recristalización estática, responsable esta última de la evolución microestructural durante la laminaci

En este trabajo se presentan los resultados texturales y estructurales de una zeolita USY comercial lixiviada, de una serie de catalizadores con 7, 15, 25, 35 y 45% de material activo y los de estos materiales desactivados hidrotérmicamente. Las muestras se caracterizaron por fluorescencia de rayos X (FRX, difracción de rayos X (DRX, resonancia magnética nuclear de silicio (29Si RMN y fisiadsorción de nitrógeno a 77 K. A partir de estos resultados se hallaron correlaciones entre el volumen de microporo y el contenido de zeolita y entre el grado de cristalinidad y el porcentaje de zeolita. Además, se encontró que un tratamiento con sólo 20% de vapor de agua a 1033 K durante 16 horas destruye los grupos estructurales Si(2Al y Si(3Al como reflejo de la dealuminización drástica que sufre el material.

    2007-08-01

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se evalúa el efecto de la humedad relativa del ambiente de servicio en las resistencias a compresión y a tracción y en el módulo de elasticidad de hormigones livianos estructurales. Además se establecen relaciones que permiten estimar estas propiedades en función de la humedad relativa del ambiente y del tiempo de secado. Los hormigones se fabricaron con dos tipos de áridos gruesos livianos, piedra pómez y pellets de ceniza volante, y con un árido fino de densidad normal. Los hormigones se sometieron a dos condiciones ambientales de servicio: una a 90% de humedad relativa y otra a 90% de humedad relativa durante los 7 primeros días y luego a 50% de humedad relativa hasta la edad de ensayo. Los ensayos se efectuaron a 7, 28, 60 y 90 días de edad. Se observó un deterioro importante de las propiedades medidas por efecto de las condiciones de secado; a 83 días de secado, en promedio las pérdidas de resistencia a tracción y compresión fueron de 20% y 15%, respectivamente, y de módulo de elasticidad de 40% respecto a hormigones a 90% de humedad relativa. Se concluye que hay dos variables principales que regulan el efecto del secado en el hormigón liviano. La primera de éstas corresponde a razón agua-cemento y que define entre otras cosas la permeabilidad de la fase resistente. La otra variable corresponde al contenido relativo de árido liviano en la mezclaIn this paper the effect of the ambient relative humidity at service on the compressive and splitting strengths and in the modulus of elasticity of structural lightweight concretes is evaluated. Also, relationships are proposed allowing estimating these properties as a function of the ambient relative humidity and drying time. The concretes were made with two types of coarse lightweight aggregates, pumice and fly ash pellets, and with normal density fine aggregate. The concretes were subjected to two different environmental service conditions: 90% relative

    Aparicio, M.

    2001-02-01

    Full Text Available The fact which currently excludes the use of C/SiC composites in high temperature structural applications is the high oxidation rate of carbon fibres at temperatures higher than 450ºC. In this second part of the paper, a review of the different oxidation protection systems, including inhibitors, surface modification of composites, coatings and previous infiltration of the substrates, has been carried out. The addition of inhibitors reduces the oxidation rate, but only up to 850ºC, while the surface modification of composites leads to thin coatings with poor thermal shock resistance. On the other hand, the external layers are the most usual method employed because allows combining different compositions and thicknesses. The multilayer coatings are especially interesting in applications with wide temperature range and thermal shocks requirements. The infiltration of substrate porosity improves slightly the oxidation resistance of C/SiC composites reducing the oxygen accessibility to carbon fibres. However, the infiltration complements very well the oxidation protection performance of a coating system at low temperature, since these normally present open cracks due to mismatch between coating and substrate thermal expansion coefficients.

    La utilización de los materiales compuestos C/SiC en aplicaciones estructurales a alta temperatura está limitada por la elevada velocidad de oxidación de la fibra de carbono a temperaturas superiores de 450ºC. En esta segunda parte del trabajo se realiza una revisión de las posibilidades de protección contra la oxidación de estos materiales, incluyendo inhibidores, modificación superficial del material compuesto, recubrimientos e infiltración previa del sustrato. La eficacia de los inhibidores de la reacción de oxidación esta restringida a temperaturas de hasta 850ºC, mientras que la modificación superficial del material compuesto da lugar a capas delgadas y poco resistentes a los ciclos t

    Full Text Available Describimos e interpretamos las definiciones aportadas por un grupo de estudiantes de bachillerato sobre el concepto de límite finito de una función en un punto en términos de aspectos estructurales, compilados y sintetizados de investigaciones previas. Los aspectos estructurales son la interpretación como objeto o como proceso de la noción de límite, los algoritmos y las destrezas prácticas para su cálculo, su alcanzabilidad y su rebasabilidad. A partir de ellos, analizamos las definiciones recogidas. Entre los resultados, destacamos la riqueza de significado de estas definiciones por razón del carácter no alcanzable y no rebasable atribuido al límite y por su consideración dual como objeto o proceso. We describe and interpret the individual definitions of a group of non-compulsory secondary education students related to the concept of finite limit of a function at one point in terms of structural aspects compiled and synthesized from prior research. These aspects are the interpretation of the limit notion as an object or a process, its exact or approximate character, the algorithms and practical skills for its calculation, its reachability and its possibility of being exceeded. Among the results we point out the richness of meaning from these definitions by the not reachable and not exceedable attributed character of the limit, and also by the dual consideration of the limit as an object or process.

    Full Text Available The aim of the present study is determinate if the steel space grid envelope structures, for tall buildings (framed tube, are more optimal and efficient if their design is based on the isostatic lines of their equivalents structural elements according to their solicitations. In this study, 600 models of tall buildings, for different triangled façades and geometric slenderness, are analyzed. The methodology employed consisted of detecting the wind loads that affects tall buildings applying the Equivalent Static Wind Loads (ESWL in relation to the wind speed and turbulence result of the roughness terrain and the topographic. However, it was also needed to establish the frequencies and modes of vibration of each structure as well as defining the coefficients of pressure, force and moments produced by the wind. The results conclude that space grids are more efficient if they do adopt the trajectory of the main and dominant load, in this case the wind.El objetivo del presente estudio es determinar si las mallas estructurales de acero, envolventes de edificios en altura (entramado en tubo, son más óptimas y eficientes cuando su diseño se adapta a la trayectoria de las líneas isostáticas de los elementos estructurales equivalentes bajo las acciones solicitantes. Se analizan 600 modelos de edificios en altura, para distintas triangulaciones de fachada y esbelteces. Las cargas de viento que influyen sobre los edificios se determinan con el método de Cargas Estáticas Equivalentes de acuerdo a la velocidad del viento y turbulencia provocados por la rugosidad del terreno y la topografía. También será necesario determinar las frecuencias y modos de vibración propios de cada estructura, así como definir los coeficientes de presión, de fuerzas y de momentos resultantes del viento. Los resultados concluyen que las mallas ganan eficiencia cuando identifican la trayectoria de las líneas isostáticas generadas por la acción principal, el viento.

    TODOS: Se usaron diferentes métodos y técnicas de recolección de datos en una investigación etnográfica quinquenal de la infección por el VIH/sida en colaboración con 96 ciudadanos de Cartagena. Se resumió en un diagrama la situación de vulnerabilidad al VIH tras analizar la información obtenida en 40 entrevistas a profundidad y 30 historias de vida de los habitantes. Este diagrama se evaluó y se complementó por medio de análisis grupales con representantes clave de organizaciones gubernamentales y no gubernamentales locales y con personas interesadas en la epidemia o afectadas por ella. RESULTADOS: El diagrama ilustra las interrelaciones dinámicas y complejas que existen entre los factores estructurales (es decir, determinantes sociales de la infección por el VIH, como el machismo; la falta de trabajo, dinero y servicios sociales; la dinámica local de la función del estado; y la dinámica internacional de la industria del turismo sexual. Sobre la base del diagrama, los grupos de representantes clave propusieron medidas estructurales prioritarias, como reducir las desigualdades socioeconómicas y proporcionar acceso a la atención de salud y la educación. CONCLUSIONES: Los determinantes sociales que se muestran en el diagrama se relacionan con las fuerzas de poder que históricamente han configurado situaciones de vulnerabilidad en Cartagena. La colaboración entre los participantes y los investigadores genera marcos conceptuales que permiten comprender y gestionar la complejidad de la determinación social de la infección por el VIH. Este enfoque permite relacionar las desigualdades locales con los flujos internacionales de poder, como el turismo sexual, y pone de manifiesto las ventajas y las limitaciones de los métodos actuales para la prevención de la infección por el VIH.

    El modelo funicular sirvió de apoyo a la tarea creativa de Gaudí facilitando la concepción de nuevas formas estructurales. Ese modelo, perfectamente apto para la representación de estructuras prismáticas (soportes, arcos, nervios, tenía sus limitaciones tratándose de estructuras superficiales. En este trabajo se presentan los resultados de una tarea de investigación cuyo objetivo fue precisamente extender las ideas de Gaudí al campo de las estructuras superficiales. Luego de revisar la técnica y el ideario de Gaudí, los autores proponen la utilización de un modelo que denominan homeostático en razón de que su génesis se apoya en el principio biológico de la homeostasis. Igual que el modelo funicular, el modelo homeostático es un modelo físico, pero en lugar de hilos, está constituido por material termoplástico y su forma se obtiene por la acción simultánea de cargas y calor. Este último degrada las propiedades mecánicas del material del modelo que sufre una metamorfosis en procura de nuevas formas de equilibrio. Se exponen los principios de la teoría del diseño y se describen los procedimientos de la Técnica del Modelo Homeostático (HMT. Se discuten los resultados de las experiencias realizadas destacando, entre otras, la ventaja de la HMT en su aplicación al diseño de formas libres. Se ilustra con fotografías el procedimiento aplicado y algunos de los modelos construidos.

    Full Text Available La satisfacción del cliente es una variable importante para la gestión del servicio de los bancos; sin embargo, comúnmente es medida con metodologías que no tienen en cuenta: primero, que desde el punto de vista estadístico, es una variable sujeta a errores de medida y segundo, la posible interrelación de las variables que la determinan.Así mismo, debido al alto grado de abstracción del concepto, para la medición del nivel de satisfacción de los clientes con su banco, se requiere de una metodología que permita descomponer el concepto en dimensiones del servicio y estas a su vez en indicadores. La metodología empleada es la modelización mediante sistemas de ecuaciones estructurales, tomando como base para su especificación, consideraciones teóricas y variables latentes detectadas por medio de un análisis factorial. De esta forma, se construye una medida basada en la relación de algunos indicadores de servicio con las dimensiones de imagen,producto y procesos, que subyacen la estructura del nivel de satisfacción. Los resultados del modelo presentado en este trabajo, permiten una mejor comprensión de una estructura sencilla de la satisfacción de los clientes con el servicio de un banco y plantea una línea base de análisis para este concepto.

    Full Text Available Carbide metal matrix composite materials are known for a high resistance to all types of wear. It is due to a beneficial combination of properties given by hard phase particles included in a tough matrix. Different kinds of those materials have been employed in the development of new high properties cutting tools. Laser cladding (LC technique allows obtaining an accurate defect-free coating with a low thermal affectation of the component. But in the case of WC cermet coatings due to its high laser absorption and the different mechanical and thermal properties between substrate and coating can appear a wide range of different defects as cracks, pores, massive carbide dilution and lacks of adherence. The aim of the present work is to study the metallurgical transformations during LC process of WC cermet coating on cold work tool steel substrate (EN 12379. Also it has been related process parameters with defects generation. Microstructure and composition of the coating and the heat affected zone have been analysed. Microhardness evolution profile has been obtained. Results show that although process parameters control reduce the generation of defects, in the deposition of overlapped layers appear different metallurgical transformations related with massive WC decomposition and the diffusion of alloying elements from substrate to the coating.

    Full Text Available En el diseño estructural, la capacidad de disipación de energía en elementos que conforman los sistemas resistentes a fuerzas dinámicas, como las impartidas por la actividad sísmica y eólica, es suministrada por un minucioso detallado del acero de refuerzo y dimensiones en las secciones transversales de los elementos. Esta práctica es realizada bajo muchas suposiciones que en algunas ocasiones no corresponden a la realidad, y como es de esperarse, producen resultados inexactos y un desconocimiento del desempeño de la estructura. Por lo anterior es riesgoso confiar el 100% de la capacidad estructural a los elementos sobre todo cuando conforman sistemas estructurales diseñados en zonas de amenaza sísmica alta. En este artículo se presentan los sistemas de control, los cuales son una serie de dispositivos adaptados a las estructuras que absorben gran parte de la energía sísmica y liberan los elementos estructurales en gran porcentaje de la acción sísmica, logrando disminuir en ellas las solicitaciones (fuerzas internas y las respuestas (derivas con el objetivo de conseguir un buen desempeño, limitar el daño y abaratar los costos de reparación de fallas localizadas. Los sistemas de control que se analizarán en el presente artículo se dividen en control pasivo, control activo, control semiactivo y control híbrido.

    Full Text Available This work shows the use of Structural Equations Modeling (SEM methodology to validate the conceptual structure of context questionnaires employed in national and international studies that evaluate the educational achievement of students. Unfortunately, evaluation agencies do not assign the same amount of technical resources to context questionnaires as those allotted to achievement tests, consequently the former are rarely subject to validity studies. In order to show the use of SEM methodology, a questionnaire was selected, which was employed by the National Institute for the Evaluation of Education to investigate the background factors associated with educational achievement of elementary school students in the third grade. It was administered to a national representative sample of 55,312 students. This questionnaire is analyzed according to SEM procedures of confirmatory factor analysis (CFA. The obtained results provide evidence for the constructive validity of this tool.

    Full Text Available Boron nitride (BN thin films were deposited on silicon substrates by thermal CVD using mixtures of ammoniac and diborane. The effect of the deposition temperature (T on the structural and optical characteristics of the BN samples was studied in the temperature range of 500 – 1000 oC. The deposition rate reached its maximum (1600 Å/min at T = 900 oC. The activation energy (Ea of the reaction NH3 + B2H6, determined from the Arrhenius plot, is of 13.6 kcal/mol in the 500 – 900 oC range. The Infrared spectroscopy revealed the existence of different bands corresponding to B-H, N-H and B-N bonds. The concentration of B-H and N-H species is below the detection limit of IR spectroscopy in the BN films deposited at T ≥ 800 oC. The chemical analysis by XPS spectroscopy showed the presence of B-B and B-N bonds. An increase of the deposition temperature lead to a decrease of B-B bonds, which favors the formation of quasi-stoichiometric BN at T = 1000 oC. At this temperature, the resulting BN films are highly transparent with a refractive index of 1.7. The BN films deposited at T ≤ 900 oC are amorphous, nevertheless at T = 1000 oC they are partially crystallized with a turbostratic structure.

    Full Text Available Abstract: The present research had as objective to know information regarding the level of relation of the telecommunications and the user and financial management in the educational institutions of higher level (IES in Mexico, through a structural equations model. The methodology to know the impact of telecommunications in the management of users and financial management consisted of conducting surveys with 28 questions to a sample of 34 public universities in Mexico. The application of the same was of induced character, and of structured form with questions mostly by a Likert scale. Three hypotheses were formulated that we considered fundamental. To verify, a model of structural equations was designed with the telecommunications service, internal process management, user management and financial management as constructs. With data from the surveys, a cross-sectional database was created and introduced to specialized statistical analysis software called Smart PLS V. 2.0 (M3. The results of the statistical model show that the telecommunications service provided by IHEs in Mexico has a strong relationship with the management of internal processes and this in turn has a very strong relationship with user management and financial management. It is generally concluded that telecommunications that exist in public IES have a strong influence on user management and financial management supported by Internal Process Management. Resumen.

    Full Text Available Na última década, o crescimento permitiu ao Brasil se tornar a sexta economia do mundo, enquanto o México ficou para trás, mesmo que, em meados da primeira década do século XXI, as duas economias estivessem emparelhadas. As raízes dessa diferença podem ser encontradas nas políticas governamentais que no Brasil fortaleceram mercado interno, enquanto o México buscou por estabilidade e a globalização dificultou o potencial do mercado interno e reduziu o efeito das cadeias de valor globais. A análise comparativa das economias latino-americanas confirma a abordagem teórica da teoria do desenvolvimento, que o fortalecimento do mercado interno é a melhor maneira de aproximar economias de escala na economia global.

    2009-08-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo reflexiona sobre el alcance que debe tener la vivienda social en el momento actual, que supera su limitada condición de oferta higiénica, funcional y programática. La calidad arquitectónica y su integración urbana es ya parte de esa dignidad que requiere el diseño social; la permanencia de los sectores sociales más desfavorecidos en los centros históricos y en sus arquitecturas patrimoniales debe ser así un derecho adquirido. Tras ofrecer una introducción somera del agotamiento del sueño moderno en la periferia residencial y la vuelta a la ciudad, el artículo reflexiona sobre la especulación inmobiliaria que ha rodeado a estas arquitecturas históricas en España a partir de los años ochenta del pasado siglo y que ha convertido el reciclaje de estos contenedores patrimoniales para vivivienda social en una obligación de los agentes públicos. La experiencia pionera en Andalucía de establecer una línea específica de integración de vivienda social en centros históricos es expuesta a partir de proyectos de la propia autora. Estas operaciones tienen el potencial de integrar la protección patrimonial, impedir la tematización de ciudad histórica asegurando la diversidad social y evitar en su caso la despoblación de los municipios menores.

    Full Text Available This paper addresses the social and environmental conflicts in a protected landscape of sustainable use which has faced urban expansion of high social exclusion. In this scenario of both socio and environmental vulnerability, the Protected Landscape of Borore-Colonia was created, at the same time that municipal natural parks in the interior of this APA were also created as compensatory measure for the environmental licensing of the South Part of the Metropolitan Ring Road. The research question that guided the study is: What are the interference of environmental licensing of the Metropolitan Ring Road both in existing conflicts and in the generation new conflicts in the implementation of the Municipal Natural Park Itaim in the region of Borore-Colonia Protected Landscape? The objetive of this study was to analyze the conflicts in the Protected Landscape of Borore-Colonia considering both the pre-existing conflicts to the environmental licensing of the Southern Ring Road stretch and the conflicts that emerged with the creation of the park as a compensatory measure of this licensing. This research was developed as a case study having documental analysis, semi-structured interview carried out with nine social actors, and participatory research as major sources of information. The ethnographic perspective was the selected one for the conflict analysis. As a result, both socio and environmental conflicts that took place previously and simultaneously to the environmental licensing of the South Part of the Metropolitan Ring Road were analyzed with identification of the natural and social agents involved, the major actors (including the Public Power, and their power of quotas. As a conclusion, it was perceived that the pre-existing conflicts were accentuated by the new ones resulting from the licensing and the environmental impacts of the construction of the Southern Section of the Ring Road and the conduct of the Bill of the creation of the protected landscape. It is recommended that the environmental licensing, particularly environmental compensation mechanisms, should not only comply with environmental legislation, but also incorporate the resolution of environmental conflicts that affect local communities directly impacted by the project. It is recommended that the environmental licensing for impact assessment do incorporate safeguards for resolving environmental conflicts that affect local communities that are directly impacted by infrastructure works (e.g. Ring Road in its environmental compensation mechanisms.

    Full Text Available The increasing of big cities with a great population density, flows to the multiplication of light and thin towers in very high buildings, with an small natural damping. So, those buildings are exposed to the wind oscillations and to the earthquakes. Those oscillations could produce damages in the structure, affect its functionality and/or to be a cause of discomfort. In order to reduce the structural risk of excessive deformations or accelerations, we want to bring up here a solution lied with the dissipation of vibrational energy in the structural dampers. The objective of this work is to bring a c1ear and complete c1assification and description of all isolation and vibration controls known till the moment and their main application' fields. The definition of those systems is completed with graphics, characteristics and structures examples. This c1assification will allow a real interpretation of advantages and disadvantages of all isolation and vibration controls concerning structural applications.El aumento de la densidad poblacional y de las grandes urbes ha incrementado la necesidad de las torres de edificios de gran altura, las cuales tienden a ser muy livianas y delgadas, por lo tanto poseen un amortiguamiento natural muy pequeño, lo que los hace más propensos a las oscilaciones del viento y los sismos. Dichas oscilaciones pueden causar daño a la estructura, afectar su funcionalidad y/o causar incomodidad. Una solución planteada para reducir el riesgo estructural de experimentar deformaciones excesivas o aceleraciones es la disipación de energía vibracional en los amortiguadores estructurales. El objetivo de este trabajo es brindar una clasificación clara y completa de todos los sistemas de aislación y control de vibraciones existentes hasta al momento, además de una descripción de los mismos y sus principales campos de aplicación.

En este trabajo se muestra un nuevo tipo de metodología, los modelos estructurales marginales (MEM, y se estima la efectividad de la terapia antirretroviral de gran actividad (TARGA sobre la incidencia de sida o muerte. Sujetos y métodos: Se identificaron los sujetos sin TARGA seguidos a partir de 1997 en las cohortes de seroconvertores al virus de la inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH del proyecto GEMES (Grupo de Estudio Multicéntrico Español de Seroconvertores. Para estimar el efecto sobre la incidencia de sida o muerte, se obtuvieron los parámetros de un MEM mediante una regresión logística ponderada por probabilidad inversa. La estimación de los pesos se basó en el recuento de CD4, el tiempo desde la seroconversión, el sexo, la edad, la categoría de trasmisión y el tratamiento previo. Resultados: Los 917 sujetos elegibles se siguieron durante una media de 3,4 años, durante los cuales se observaron 139 desenlaces de interés. El 42,1% de los participantes recibió TARGA durante el estudio. La tasa relativa fue de 1,01 (intervalo de confianza &(IC& del 95%, 0,68-1,49 mediante un modelo de Cox convencional sin covariables, y de 0,90 (IC del 95%, 0,61-1,32 mediante un modelo de Cox convencional con covariables cambiantes en el tiempo. La tasa relativa causal estimada por un MEM fue de 0,74 (IC del 95%, 0,49-1,12. Conclusiones: El efecto beneficioso del TARGA encontrado por los MEM está bien establecido, pero los modelos convencionales no pudieron detectarlo. El uso de un MEM permitió ajustar apropiadamente por la variable CD4, que es a la vez una variable de confusión dependiente del tiempo y está afectada por el uso previo de tratamiento.Objectives: Standard methods to evaluate population effectiveness of treatments in observational

We have obtained monophasic materials: LiCo1‑xNixO2 (0≤x≤0.8, LiCo1‑xMgxO2 (0≤x≤0.05, LiCo1‑xAlxO2 (0≤x≤0.3 and LiCo0.5Ni0.5‑xAlxO2 (0≤x≤0.3. In general, the samples obtained with succinic acid have better ordered lithium layers than malic samples.The capacity of the Li//LiCo1‑ xMxO2 batteries decrease upon doping. However, more stable charge‑discharge cycling performances have been obtained as compared to those displayed by the native oxides. In LiCo1‑xMgxO2, small amounts of MgO appear as secondary phases for 0.05 En este trabajo preparamos, mediante un método sol‑gel, óxidos LiCo1‑xMxO2 dopando LiCoO2 con Ni, Al y Mg, con el fin de comprobar la influencia del catión dopante y del grado de dopaje en su comportamiento electroquímico como cátodos de baterías de litio. Estudiamos la influencia de las condiciones de síntesis (utilizando diferentes agentes quelatantes para la formación del gel en las propiedades morfológicas y estructurales de los materiales obtenidos, que condicionan, a su vez, su comportamiento electroquímico.

En este artículo se propone un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales para explicar la influencia de la RSC y su integración en el sistema de gestión de la empresa, facilitada por la existencia de sistemas de gestión normalizados previos, y cómo influye dicha integración en la estrategia de la empresa y si esto tiene un reflejo en el performance económico de la empresa tecnológica. El estudio se llevó a cabo en empresas ubicadas en parques científicos y tecnológicos españoles. Los resultados del modelo revelan que existe una relación positiva, directa y estadísticamente significativas entre la integración de la RSC y la estrategia, por un lado, y la integración y el performance, por el otro. Asimismo se evidencia unas relaciones indirectas entre los sistemas de gestión normalizados previos a la implantación de la RSC y el performance y, por tanto, con implicaciones prácticas para la gestión de la RSC en empresas tecnológicas. || The importance of management systems for the integration of CSR in the company strategy is a vital resource that has been little studied in technology companies.

La investigación se desarrolló en tres municipios de dos departamentos, utilizando como técnicas de recolección de información: análisis de documentos, entrevistas semi-abiertas con funcionarios del sistema, observaciones directas y el acompañamiento del proceso de cambio. Los resultados fueron: no hay preparación en los municipios para el cambio, llevando al desconocimento de elementos importantes en el nuevo sistema, lo que se asocia con la reducción de coberturas del PAI y con la disminución de la detección de casos de tuberculosis. Problemas estructurales del nuevo sistema fueron: oportunidades perdidas de inmunización y de análisis de contacto de pacientes con tuberculosis. Las potenciales del nuevo sistema fueron el desarrollo de una nueva estructura organizacional municipal y el mejoramiento del sistema de información y la debilidad de ser expuesto a intereses políticos del nivel local. Se concluye que el período de transición del sistema es mucho más largo de lo previsto y requiere un mayor flujo de información hacia el nivel municipal y comunitario. Hay desajustes pasajeros y desajustes estructurales los cuales requieren respuestas políticas.

    heart rate and game intensity depending on the game parameters used during the game situation. Different key words such as conditioning and basketball in different data bases such as Pub Med or ISI web of knowledge were checked throughout the selection process. Finally, 12 articles were included in the review showing that the modification of some game parameters such as number of players, space conditions, time aspects and game rules, can influence the orientation of the endurance training in basketball. Thereby, a methodological proposal was created to illustrate the usefulness of the different game parameters in order to control and plan the endurance training integrated with technical and tactical drills in basketball. However, the background studies of the methodological proposal should be considered since these studies only have analyzed the simple effects of the different parameters and due to the fact, future studies should study the interaction of the different parameters in order to validate the proposal. Nevertheless, it is believed that this methodological proposal can be helpful so as to integrate endurance training with technical and tactical drills.

    Full Text Available Los profesores de español como lengua extranjera en Taiwán se encuentran, además de los errores normales de gramática: verbos mal conjugados, preposiciones, etc., o de sintaxis, como la colocación del adjetivo sistemáticamente delante del verbo –errores propios de las diferencias lingüísticas existentes entre el chino y el español–, con otro problema que suele llamarles especialmente la atención: la falta del “principio de economía”, es decir, los estudiantes usan palabras que no son necesarias para que se produzca la comunicación, es más, son redundantes; por ejemplo, es fácil encontrar giros como: “comer comida”, “dormir sobre la cama”, etc. Si se conoce la lengua china, se sabe que muchos de estos errores de los alumnos se producen por lo que se denomina “calco estructural”, ya que se trata de una traducción literal no solo del significado sino también de la sintaxis de su lengua materna. Por ello, para ayudar a los aprendientes a que reconozcan estos “calcos estructurales”, lo fundamental es poder mostrarles un estudio contrastivo de ambas lenguas. Ya que como menciona Kayne en la introducción a su Syntaxe du français: le cycle transformationnel hay que “esclarecer la lengua a través de la teoría y la teoría a través del estudio de la lengua”. Por ello, este artículo se centra en hacer un estudio contrastivo, atendiendo a la forma para enseñar a los aprendientes taiwaneses a reconocer algunos de los “calcos estructurales”, para que así puedan evitar caer en ellos.

    Full Text Available Carbon fibre reinforced polymers are increasingly replacing the steel reinforcing systems in the repair and strengthening of concrete structures thanks to their high strength/weight and stiffness/weight ratios, corrosion resistance, lightweight, and ease of handling and application. This paper presents a study on the behaviour of bridge concrete beams strengthened with CFRP sheets when the strengthening is made when traffic is acting so that the structure is subjected to dynamic loads while the adhesive is still fresh. No reduction in the effectiveness of the strengthening was observed in the tests.

    Los polímeros reforzados con fibras de carbono se están utilizando cada vez más para el refuerzo de estructuras de hormigón, reemplazando a los sistemas tradicionales de refuerzo con acero. Esto es debido a sus altas resistencia y rigidez específicas, resistencia a la corrosión, ligereza y facilidad de manejo y puesta en obra. Este artículo presenta un estudio sobre el comportamiento de vigas de puentes reforzadas con bandas de CFRP mientras se mantiene el puente en servicio de manera que la estructura está sometida a cargas dinámicas con el adhesivo fresco. En los ensayos realizados se ha observado que las cargas dinámicas no afectan a la efectividad del refuerzo.

    Full Text Available Las reformas educativas en América Latina y Argentina¿particularmente- estuvieron propulsadas por la introducción de un nuevo modelo económico y social hegemónico a nivel global de orientación neoliberal. Este modelo abogaba por una economía de libre mercado capaz de garantizar una permanente y exitosa apertura comercial y financiera, así como la consolidación de estados eficientes y "mínimos" que obraran como genuinos garantes de la competencia, la equidad social, el fortalecimiento de la ciudadanía desde una esfera individual y el funcionamiento adecuado de las instituciones a nivel democrático. En el campo educativo se constata que los fundamentos teóricos y políticos inherentes a la reforma en el momento de su incorporación a principios de la década del ´90 en la práctica encontraron profundas obstaculizaciones y reticencias que operaron como un marco de limitación estructural para la transposición de los proyectos y objetivos más significativos de este nuevo proyecto político. En este contexto los jóvenes como actores estratégicos del desarrollo a la luz del fracaso inminente de los procesos y esfuerzos destinados a la transformación y modernización de la política educativa se hallan desprovistos de capitales y herramientas cognitivas, sociales y culturales necesarias para participar de un mundo cada vez más complejo, especialmente en el mercado de trabajo, la organización social y la vida política e institucional. La dilemática situación que atraviesa a los jóvenes compromete no sólo el destino de una sociedad sino principalmente la sustentabilidad del modelo de desarrollo vigente interpelada por la exclusión social, el desempleo, la precariedad y la pobreza.

    Full Text Available The conception of a structure made up of a core and periphery is a common, classic paradigm in many fields of science. Following this line, in 1999 researchers Stephen Borgatti and Martin Everett developed a model of structural analysis based on the delimitation of a core formed by a group of densely connected actors, in contrast to a class of actors, more loosely connected and forming the periphery of the system.The original approach of these authors is modified, employing measures that, in our opinion, show a larger degree of coherence and accuracy in the proposed objectives.

    1998-01-01

    The present invention provides a device suitable for switching of electric motors for driving each of control rods in a nuclear reactor. Namely, in a control rod controlling device, a plurality of previously allotted electric motors connected in parallel as groups, and electric motors of any selected group are driven. In this case, a voltage of not driving predetermined selected electric motors is at first applied. In this state an electric current supplied to the circuit of predetermined electric motors is detected. Whether integration or failure of a power source and the circuit of the predetermined electric motors are normal or not is judged by the detected electric current supplied. After they are judged normal, the electric motors are driven by a regular voltage. With such procedures, whether the selected circuit is normal or not can be accurately confirmed previously. Since the electric motors are not driven just at the selected time, the control rods are not operated erroneously. (I.S.)

Asimismo, en este estudio ex post facto, se investiga el papel mediador del afrontamiento y las emociones entre las creencias de control (CC y los resultados de salud. Se utilizó un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales. Participaron 315 pacientes con SFM de atención primaria y reumatología, que completaron medidas del estado de salud, creencias de control, afrontamiento, ansiedad y depresión. Los resultados mostraron que las CC que contienen el elemento de competencia (autoeficacia y competencia percibida en salud tienen un efecto directo sobre todas las áreas del estado de salud; además, apoyaron el papel mediador de las emociones entre las creencias de competencia y el impacto físico y psicosocial, mientras que el afrontamiento únicamente medió la relación entre la autoeficacia y el impacto físico. Las CC y las emociones son elementos centrales en la explicación del impacto del SFM. Los esfuerzos terapéuticos deberían incrementar las creencias de competencia para mejorar significativamente los resultados de salud y el distrés emocional de la SFM. Estos hallazgos contribuyen al entendimiento sobre cómo los factores psicosociales influyen en la adaptación de pacientes con SFM.

Se realizó este estudio con el objetivo de dirigir la atención hacia la coincidencia topográfica de los paroxismos electroencefalográficos, con lesiones estructurales demostrables por neuroimagen, para facilitar el diseño de estrategias terapéuticas futuras. MÉTODOS. Se realizó un estudio descriptivo, longitudinal prospectivo, con 44 niños con diagnóstico de epilepsia focal de difícil control, ingresados en el Servicio de Neuropediatría del Hospital Pediátrico Docente «Juan M. Márquez», entre enero de 2003 y junio de 2007. Se realizaron estudios por electroencefalograma (EEG al ingreso y videoelectroencefalograma, además de estudios de neuroimagen por tomografía axial o resonancia magnética nuclear. RESULTADOS. Los paroxismos en EEG involucraron el lóbulo frontal hasta en el 68 % de los pacientes. En el 48 % de los pacientes, los paroxismos electroencefalográficos coinciden con zonas de alteración estructural según neuroimagen, más frecuentes en el lóbulo frontal. En el 25 % no hay coincidencia topográfica y en el 27 % no se precisan alteraciones estructurales. CONCLUSIONES. En las epilepsias focales de difícil control se debe prestar especial atención a las zonas elocuentes con coincidencia entre el EEG y la neuroimagen, para evaluar de forma temprana las alternativas quirúrgicas de tratamiento.INTRODUCTION: Focal epilepsies are the more frequent conditions in children and a pharmacologic treatment resistance could be present up to 30% of patients.

La investigación se desarrolló en tres municipios de dos departamentos, utilizando como técnicas de recolección de información: análisis de documentos, entrevistas semi-abiertas con funcionarios del sistema, observaciones directas y el acompañamiento del proceso de cambio. Los resultados fueron: no hay preparación en los municipios para el cambio, llevando al desconocimento de elementos importantes en el nuevo sistema, lo que se asocia con la reducción de coberturas del PAI y con la disminución de la detección de casos de tuberculosis. Problemas estructurales del nuevo sistema fueron: oportunidades perdidas de inmunización y de análisis de contacto de pacientes con tuberculosis. Las potenciales del nuevo sistema fueron el desarrollo de una nueva estructura organizacional municipal y el mejoramiento del sistema de información y la debilidad de ser expuesto a intereses políticos del nivel local. Se concluye que el período de transición del sistema es mucho más largo de lo previsto y requiere un mayor flujo de información hacia el nivel municipal y comunitario. Hay desajustes pasajeros y desajustes estructurales los cuales requieren respuestas políticas.This paper analyzes the effects of health reform in Colombia on public health programs at the local level, particularly the Expanded Program of Immunization (EPI and the tuberculosis control program.

    The present invention provides a control rod position control device which stores data such as of position signals and driving control rod instruction before and after occurrence of abnormality in control for the control rod position for controlling reactor power and utilized the data effectively for investigating the cause of abnormality. Namely, a plurality of individual control devices have an operation mismatching detection circuit for outputting signals when difference is caused between a driving instruction given to the control rod position control device and the control rod driving means and signals from a detection means for detecting an actual moving amount. A general control device collectively controls the individual control devices. In addition, there is also disposed a position storing circuit for storing position signals at least before and after the occurrence of the control rod operation mismatching. With such procedures, the cause of the abnormality can be determined based on the position signals before and after the occurrence of control rod mismatching operation stored in the position storing circuit. Accordingly, the abnormality cause can be determined to conduct restoration in an early stage. (I.S.)

    Purpose: To realize effective utilization, cost reduction and weight reduction in neutron absorbing materials. Constitution: Residual amount of neutron absorbing material is averaged between the top end region and other regions of a control rod upon reaching to the control rod working life, by using a single kind of neutron absorbing material and increasing the amount of the neutron absorber material at the top end region of the control rod as compared with that in the other regions. Further, in a case of a control rod having control rod blades such as in a cross-like control rod, the amount of the neutron absorbing material is decreased in the middle portion than in the both end portions of the control rod blade along the transversal direction of the rod, so that the residual amount of the neutron absorbing material is balanced between the central region and both end regions upon reaching the working life of the control rod.

    2016-01-01

    This book is based on lectures from a one-year course at the Far Eastern Federal University (Vladivostok, Russia) as well as on workshops on optimal control offered to students at various mathematical departments at the university level. The main themes of the theory of linear and nonlinear systems are considered, including the basic problem of establishing the necessary and sufficient conditions of optimal processes. In the first part of the course, the theory of linear control systems is constructed on the basis of the separation theorem and the concept of a reachability set.

    During 1984, all portions of the Nova control system that were necessary for the support of laser activation and completion of the Nova project were finished and placed in service on time. The Nova control system has been unique in providing, on schedule, the capabilities required in the central control room and in various local control areas throughout the facility. The ambitious goal of deploying this system early enough to use it as an aid in the activation of the laser was accomplished; thus the control system made a major contribution to the completion of Nova activation on schedule. Support and enhancement activities continued during the year on the VAX computer systems, central control room, operator consoles and displays, Novanet data communications network, system-level software for both the VAX and LSI-11 computers, Praxis control system computer language, software management tools, and the development system, which includes office terminals. Computational support was also supplied for a wide variety of test fixtures required by the optical and mechanical subsystems. Significant new advancements were made in four areas in integrated controls this year: the integration software (which includes the shot scheduler), the Praxis language, software quality assurance audit, and software development and data handling. A description of the accomplishments in each of these areas follows

    Purpose: A control rod has been developed, which provided a plurality of through-holes in the vicinity of the sheath fitting position, in order to flatten burn-up, of fuel rods in positions confronting a control rod. Thereby to facilitate the manufacture of the control rods and prevent fuel rod failures. Constitution: A plurality of through-holes are formed in the vicinity of the sheath fitting position of a central support rod to which a sheath for the control rod is fitted. These through-holes are arranged in the axial direction of the central support rod. Accordingly, burn-up of fuel rods confronting the control rods can be reduced by through-holes and fuel rod failures can be prevented. (Yoshino, Y.)

    Incremental development and maintenance of large systems imply that control be clearly separated from knowledge. Finding efficient control for a given class of knowledge is itself a matter of expertise, to which knowledge-based methods may and should be applied. We present here two attempts at building root systems that may later be tuned by knowledge engineers, using the semantics of each particular application. These systems are given heuristics in a declarative manner, which they use to control the application of heuristics. Eventually, some heuristics may be used to compile others (or themselves) into efficient pieces of programmed code

    Full Text Available This research aims to determine information regarding the level of job satisfaction of the Mexican Institutes of Technology (TecNM. in northeastern México with a structural equation model. The methodology designed to explain job satisfaction level consisted of a survey questioner with 37 questions applied to a sample of 485 professors and administrators from the National Institutes of Technology located in Tamaulipas Mexico (Cd. Victoria, Matamoros, Nuevo Laredo, Nuevo León (Linares City and Coahuila (Saltillo. The sample was random, stratified, and structured with questions mostly using a Likert scale. Six fundamental hypotheses were formulated for testing a structural equation model with job satisfaction as dependent variable. A database of cross section data was created with the sample, and processed with a statistical data analysis software called SmartPLS V. 2.0 (M3. The results of the structural model show that two of the five constructs are highly relevant and statistically significant on their impact on job satisfaction and they refer to the benefits received by employees and the working environment we live in institutions. It is concluded generally that the perception we have in relation to variables that influence job satisfaction are not significant as we think.

Such alignments are located in the sub-geological system of the Sierra de Guadarrama, and they coexist with to already known rectilinear alignments. In the sub-westem system, Sierra de Gredos, are detected rectilinear alignments. The circular structures of Sierra de Guadarrarna would have a relationship to geological processes still unknown after the Hercynian Orogeny but before of the Oligocene.Utilizando una metodología semicuantitativa, las redes de drenaje de los ríos Alberche y Guadarrama ponen de manifiesto que existen alineaciones circulares sobre las rocas graníticas y metamórficas de la Cordillera Central, cuya presencia hasta ahora se había detectado por análisis de imagen de satélite. Tales alineaciones se sitúan en el subsistema geológico de la Sierra del Guadarrama, en donde coexisten con alineaciones rectas ya conocidas. En el subsistema occidental, la Sierra de Gredos, se detectan alineaciones rectas. Las estructuras circulares de la Sierra de Guadarrama tendrían su origen en relación con procesos geodinámicos todavía desconocidos, ocurridos con posterioridad a la Orogenia Hercínica, pero antes del Oligoceno.

    Purpose: To prevent fuel element failures during power conditioning by removing liquid absorbents in poison tubes of control rods in a fast power up step and extracting control rods to slightly increase power in a medium power up step. Constitution: A plurality of poison tubes are disposed in a coaxial or plate-like arrangement and divided into a region capable of compensating the reactivity from the initial state at low temperature to 40% power operation and a region capable of compensating the reactivity in the power up above 40% power operation. Soluble poisons are used as absorbers in the poison tubes corresponding to above 40% power operation and they are adapted to be removed independently from the driving of control rods. The poison tubes filled with the soluble absorbers are responsible for the changes in the reactivity from the initial state at low temperature to the medium power region and the reactivity control is conducted by the elimination of liquid absorbers from the poison tubes. In the succeeding slight power up region above the medium power, power up is proceeding by extracting the control rods having remaining poison tubes filled with solid or liquid absorbers. (Seki, T.)

    Purpose: To provide a sufficient shutdown margin upon reactor shutdown, prevent sheath deformation without decreasing neutron absorbents and prevent impact shocks exerted to structural materials. Constitution: The control rod of the present invention comprises a neutron absorption region, a sheath deformation means attached to the side wall and means for restricting and supporting axial movement of the neutron absorbent rod. Then, the amount of absorptive nuclei chained absorbents in the lower region is reduced than that in the upper region. In this way, effective neutron absorbing performance can be obtained relative to the neutron importance distribution during reactor shutdown. In addition, since the operationability is improved by reducing the weight of the control rod and the absorptive nuclei chained neutron abosrbers are used, mechanical nuclear life of the control rod can be increased. Thus, it is possible to prevent the outward deformation of the sheath, as well as prevent collision between the neutron absorber rod and the structural material on the side of inserting the control rod generated upon reactor scram by a simple structure.

    Brown, S.

    1996-01-01

    Members of the public are exposed to environmental radiations from a variety of sources. In terms of average dose received the major component is from natural sources of radiation for which there is little or no scope to reduce exposure. Where such opportunities do exist, in those homes with high radon concentrations, the householders tend to ignore the risks despite the availability of comparatively straightforward and inexpensive remediation measures. By comparison there is significant public concern about radioactive waste management and the disposal and discharge of radioactivity to the environment despite strict environmental controls. This paper describes the controls and the wider policy context for radioactive waste management following a major review of policy last year. (author)

    With the purpose of eliminating the controversy about the lineal hypothesis without threshold which found the systems of dose limitation of the recommendations of ICRP 26 and 60, at the end of last decade R. Clarke president of the ICRP proposed the concept of Controllable Dose: as the dose or dose sum that an individual receives from a particular source which can be reasonably controllable by means of any means; said concept proposes a change in the philosophy of the radiological protection of its concern by social approaches to an individual focus. In this work a panorama of the foundations is presented, convenient and inconveniences that this proposal has loosened in the international community of the radiological protection, with the purpose of to familiarize to our Mexican community in radiological protection with these new concepts.

  17. Control rod

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Takeda, Toshikazu; Inoue, Kotaro.

    1979-01-01

    Purpose: To flatten the power distribution in the reactor core without impairing neutron economy by disposing pins containing elements of lower atomic number in the central region of a shroud and loading pins containing depleted uranium in the periphery region thereof. Constitution: The shroud has a layer of pins containing depleted uranium in the peripheral region and a layer of pins containing elements of lower atomic number such as beryllium in the central region. Heat removal from those pins containing depleted uranium and elements of lower atomic number (neutron moderator) is effected by sodium flow outside of the cladding material. The control rod operation is conducted by inserting or extracting the central portion (pins containing elements of lower atomic number such as beryllium) inside of the stainless pipe. Upon extraction of the control rod, the moderator in the central region is removed whereby high speed neutrons are no more deccelerated and the absorption rate to the depleted uranium is decreased. This can flatten the power distribution in the reactore core with the disposition of a plurality of control rods at a better neutron economy as compared with the use of neutron absorber such as boron. (Seki, T.)

    1994-01-01

    Neutron absorbers are contained in a tubular member comprising, integrally a tubular portion and four corners disposed at the outer circumference of the tubular portion at every 90deg, to provide a neutron absorbing tube. A plurality of neutron absorbing tubes are arranged in parallel in the lateral direction, and adjacent corners are joined, into a blade to constitute a control rod. Such a control rod has a great structural strength, simple in the structure and relatively light in weight and can contain a great amount of neutron absorbers. Upon formation of the control rod by arranging the blades in a cross-like shape, at least a portion thereof is constituted with short neutron absorbing tubes shorter than the entire length of the blade, and gaps are formed at positions in adjacent in the axial direction. With such a constitution, there is no worry that a wing end of the blade collides against or be abraded with a fuel channel box or a fuel support. Even if fuel channels are vibrated upon scram of the reactor, such as occurrence of earthquakes, it can be inserted to the reactor easily. (N.H.)

  19. Controlled fragmentation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Arnold, Werner

    2002-01-01

    Contrary to natural fragmentation, controlled fragmentation offers the possibility to adapt fragment parameters like size and mass to the performance requirements in a very flexible way. Known mechanisms like grooves inside the casing, weaken the structure. This is, however, excluded for applications with high accelerations during launch or piercing requirements for example on a semi armor piercing penetrator. Another method to achieve controlled fragmentation with an additional grid layer is presented with which the required grooves are produced 'just in time' inside the casing during detonation of the high explosive. The process of generating the grooves aided by the grid layer was studied using the hydrocode HULL with respect to varying grid designs and material combinations. Subsequent to this, a large range of these theoretically investigated combinations was contemplated in substantial experimental tests. With an optimised grid design and a suitable material selection, the controlled fragment admits a very flexible adaptation to the set requirements. Additional advantages like the increase of perforation performance or incendiary amplification can be realized with the grid layer

    1987-01-01

    Purpose: To reduce the weight and thereby obtain satisfactory operationability of control rods by combining absorbing nuclear chain type neutron absorbers and conventional type neutron absorbers in the axial direction of blades. Constitution: Neutron absorber rods and long life type neutron absorber rods are disposed in a tie rod and a sheath. The neutron absorber rod comprises a poison tube made of stainless steels and packed with B 4 C powder. The long life type neutron absorber rod is prepared by packing B-10 enriched boron carbide powder into a hafnium metal rod, hafnium pipe, europium and stainless made poison tube. Since the long life type absorber rod uses HF as the absorbing nuclear chain type neutron absorber, it absorbs neutrons to form new neutron absorbers to increase the nuclear life. (Yoshino, Y.)

    Microsoft's Visual Basic (VB) and Borland's Delphi provide an extremely robust programming environment for delivering multimedia solutions for interactive kiosks, games and titles. Their object oriented use of standard and custom controls enable a user to build extremely powerful applications. A multipurpose, database enabled programming environment that can provide an event driven interface functions as a multimedia kernel. This kernel can provide a variety of authoring solutions (e.g. a timeline based model similar to Macromedia Director or a node authoring model similar to Icon Author). At the heart of the kernel is a set of low level multimedia components providing object oriented interfaces for graphics, audio, video and imaging. Data preparation tools (e.g., layout, palette and Sprite Editors) could be built to manage the media database. The flexible interface for VB allows the construction of an infinite number of user models. The proliferation of these models within a popular, easy to use environment will allow the vast developer segment of 'producer' types to bring their ideas to the market. This is the key to building exciting, content rich multimedia solutions. Microsoft's VB and Borland's Delphi environments combined with multimedia components enable these possibilities.

    Purpose: To ensure the fuel safety by constituting a control rod with a plurality of poison bodies suspended in a cross-like section and shorter length poison bodies made movable and engageable in the gap between each of the above poison bodies thereby maintaining the function of the shorter length poison constant. Constitution: Cross-like supports are secured to the upper and lower parts of a driving shaft journaled in a sheath and poison bodies composed of neutron absorber poisons of a large thermal neutron absorption cross section and neutron absorber poison tubes for containing them are suspended from the supports. A movable cross-like support is mounted slidably at its base to the lower part of the driving shaft and poison bodies shorter than the above poison bodies and composed of neutron absorber poisons having a greater absorption cross section at the neutron energy region higher than thermal neutron region and neutron poison tubes for containing them are suspended to the movable support at the position capable of engaging in the gap between each of the poison bodies.

  6. Radiation control

    This paper describes on how the condition of radiation level in the ring (storage ring) experimentation room changes corresponding to the operating stage of SOR-ring (synchrotron radiation storage ring), and does not describe on the present radiation control in the SOR facility. The operating stage of SOR is divided into the following five: (1) 307 MeV electron injection, (2) 307 MeV electron storage (used for SOR experiments), (3) energy increase from 307 to 380 MeV, (4) 380 MeV electron storage, (5) re-injection and completion of operation. Gamma and X ray levels are shown when electron beam is injected from the electron synchrotron to the SOR-ring. Two main causes of the high level are reported. Spatial dose rate in storing 307 MeV electrons in also illustrated. This is sufficiently lower than that at electron incidence. The measurement of radiation level at the time of energy increase from 307 to 380 MeV has just started. Since the radiation level in 380 MeV storage, measured at the points about 20 cm apart from the electron orbit, showed several mR/h, the level seems to be negligible at the points where experiments are carried out, 1 m away from the measurement points. The radiation level in electron reinjection and completion of operation may be large during a short period (a few Roentgen) like the time of energy increase. Therefore, the beam shall be re-injected or decreased after confirming that all experimenters have retreated into the predetermined place. (Wakatsuki, Y.)

    2001-01-01

    This paper studies active vibration control of multi-degree-of-freedom system. The control techniques considered are LTR, H/sup 2/ and H/sup infinite/. The results show that LTR controls the vibration but its respective settling time is higher than that of the other techniques. The control performance of H/sup infinite/ control is similar to that of H/sup 2/ control in the case of it weighting functions. However, H/sup infinite/ control is superior to H/sup 2/ control with respect to robustness, steady state error and settling time. (author)

  14. Incoherent control of locally controllable quantum systems

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Dong Daoyi; Zhang Chenbin; Rabitz, Herschel; Pechen, Alexander; Tarn, T.-J.

    2008-01-01

    An incoherent control scheme for state control of locally controllable quantum systems is proposed. This scheme includes three steps: (1) amplitude amplification of the initial state by a suitable unitary transformation, (2) projective measurement of the amplified state, and (3) final optimization by a unitary controlled transformation. The first step increases the amplitudes of some desired eigenstates and the corresponding probability of observing these eigenstates, the second step projects, with high probability, the amplified state into a desired eigenstate, and the last step steers this eigenstate into the target state. Within this scheme, two control algorithms are presented for two classes of quantum systems. As an example, the incoherent control scheme is applied to the control of a hydrogen atom by an external field. The results support the suggestion that projective measurements can serve as an effective control and local controllability information can be used to design control laws for quantum systems. Thus, this scheme establishes a subtle connection between control design and controllability analysis of quantum systems and provides an effective engineering approach in controlling quantum systems with partial controllability information.

  16. Covariance upperbound controllers for networked control systems

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ko, Sang Ho

    2012-01-01

    This paper deals with designing covariance upperbound controllers for a linear system that can be used in a networked control environment in which control laws are calculated in a remote controller and transmitted through a shared communication link to the plant. In order to compensate for possible packet losses during the transmission, two different techniques are often employed: the zero-input and the hold-input strategy. These use zero input and the latest control input, respectively, when a packet is lost. For each strategy, we synthesize a class of output covariance upperbound controllers for a given covariance upperbound and a packet loss probability. Existence conditions of the covariance upperbound controller are also provided for each strategy. Through numerical examples, performance of the two strategies is compared in terms of feasibility of implementing the controllers

    Science.gov (United States)

    Halyo, Nesim

    1996-01-01

    The need for integrated/constrained control systems has become clearer as advanced aircraft introduced new coupled subsystems such as new propulsion subsystems with thrust vectoring and new aerodynamic designs. In this study, we develop an integrated control design methodology which accomodates constraints among subsystem variables while using the Stochastic Optimal Feedforward/Feedback Control Technique (SOFFT) thus maintaining all the advantages of the SOFFT approach. The Integrated SOFFT Control methodology uses a centralized feedforward control and a constrained feedback control law. The control thus takes advantage of the known coupling among the subsystems while maintaining the identity of subsystems for validation purposes and the simplicity of the feedback law to understand the system response in complicated nonlinear scenarios. The Variable-Gain Output Feedback Control methodology (including constant gain output feedback) is extended to accommodate equality constraints. A gain computation algorithm is developed. The designer can set the cross-gains between two variables or subsystems to zero or another value and optimize the remaining gains subject to the constraint. An integrated control law is designed for a modified F-15 SMTD aircraft model with coupled airframe and propulsion subsystems using the Integrated SOFFT Control methodology to produce a set of desired flying qualities.

  17. A new controllable damper with neuro controller

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Kobayashi, N.; Kobayashi, H.; Saito, O.; Yokoi, R.; Morishita, S.

    1993-01-01

    A new controllable damper is proposed for suppressing the vibration of the piping system for wide frequency range. Electro-Rheological fluid (ER fluid) is enclosed in the damper casing in place of oil, and the apparent viscosity of ER fluid can be varied by applying electric field strength (E.F.S.), which is controlled by an adaptive neural network controller. The shaking test is conducted about a simplified L-shaped piping model with a prototype controllable damper. The test results show the effectiveness of the presented controllable damper for suppressing very small amplitude vibration of the piping system. Furthermore an application of neural network is discussed to control E.F.S. of the electrode. (author)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Fukawa, Naohiro.

    1982-01-01

    Purpose: To alleviate the load of an operator by automatically operating the main controller, the speed controller, etc. of a recirculation control system and safely operating them without erroneous operation for long period of time, thereby improving the efficiency of a plant. Constitution: An electric type hydraulic control device controls loads of a turbine and a generator and outputs a control signal also to the main controller of a recirculation flow rate control system. At this time, the main controller is set at an automatic position, and the speed controller receives a recirculation pump speed signal from the main controller at the automatic position. The speed controller outputs a pump speed control signal to the recirculation pump system, and a reactor generates a power corresponding thereto. When the power control is automatically performed by the recirculation flow rate control, an operator sets a rate of change of the recirculation pump speed and the rate of change of the mean power range monitor at a change rate setting unit. Therefore, the control of the recirculation flow rate under the power control can be substantially entirely automated. (Yoshigara, H.)

    This thesis is divided into two parts, i.e., adaptive extremum control and modelling and control of a wind turbine. The rst part of the thesis deals with the design of adaptive extremum controllers for some processes which have the behaviour that process should have as high e ciency as possible...... in parameters, and thus directly lends itself to parameter estimation and adaptive control. The extremum control law is derived based on static optimization of a performance function. For a process with nonlinearity at output the intermediate signal between the linear part and nonlinear part plays an important....... Firstly, it is assumed that the nonlinear processes can be divided into a dynamic linear part and static nonlinear part. Consequently the processes with input nonlinearity and output nonlinearity are treated separately. With the nonlinearity at the input it is easy to set up a model which is linear...

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hussey, R.B.; Gottsche, M.J. Jr.

    1963-09-17

    A hydraulic servo control mechanism of compact construction and low fluid requirements is described. The mechanism consists of a main hydraulic piston, comprising the drive output, which is connected mechanically for feedback purposes to a servo control piston. A control sleeve having control slots for the system encloses the servo piston, which acts to cover or uncover the slots as a means of controlling the operation of the system. This operation permits only a small amount of fluid to regulate the operation of the mechanism, which, as a result, is compact and relatively light. This mechanism is particuiarly adaptable to the drive and control of control rods in nuclear reactors. (auth)

    Edwards, R.M.; Power, M.A.; Bryan, M.

    1992-01-01

    A sequence of reactor and related experiments has been a central element of a senior-level laboratory course at Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) for more than 20 yr. A new experiment has been developed where the students program and operate a computer controller that manipulates the speed of a secondary control rod to regulate TRIGA reactor power. Elementary feedback control theory is introduced to explain the experiment, which emphasizes the nonlinear aspect of reactor control where power level changes are equivalent to a change in control loop gain. Digital control of nuclear reactors has become more visible at Penn State with the replacement of the original analog-based TRIGA reactor control console with a modern computer-based digital control console. Several TRIGA reactor dynamics experiments, which comprise half of the three-credit laboratory course, lead to the control experiment finale: (a) digital simulation, (b) control rod calibration, (c) reactor pulsing, (d) reactivity oscillator, and (e) reactor noise

    2002-01-01

    The presence of considerable time delays in the dynamics of many industrial processes, leading to difficult problems in the associated closed-loop control systems, is a well-recognized phenomenon. The performance achievable in conventional feedback control systems can be significantly degraded if an industrial process has a relatively large time delay compared with the dominant time constant. Under these circumstances, advanced predictive control is necessary to improve the performance of the control system significantly. The book is a focused treatment of the subject matter, including the fundamentals and some state-of-the-art developments in the field of predictive control. Three main schemes for advanced predictive control are addressed in this book: • Smith Predictive Control; • Generalised Predictive Control; • a form of predictive control based on Finite Spectrum Assignment. A substantial part of the book addresses application issues in predictive control, providing several interesting case studie...

    Purpose: To enable to monitor the coupling state between a control rod and a control rod drive. Constitution: After the completion of a control rod withdrawal, a coolant pressure is applied to a control rod drive being adjusted so as to raise only the control rod drive and, in a case where the coupling between the control rod drive and the control rod is detached, the former is elevated till it contacts the control rod and then stopped. The actual stopping position is detected by an actual position detection circuit and compared with a predetermined position stored in a predetermined position detection circuit. If both of the positions are not aligned with each other, it is judged by a judging circuit that the control rod and the control rod drives are not combined. (Sekiya, K.)

    Jagd, Søren

    This paper focuses on the leadership challenge of balancing trust and control. The relation between trust and control has for a long time been a puzzling issue for management researchers. In the paper I first show that there has been a dramatic change in the way the relation between trust...... and control has been conceptualized in trust research. While the relation between trust and control earlier was conceptualized as a more or less stable balance between trust and control, more recent research conceptualizes the relation between trust and control more as a dynamical process that involves...... an ongoing process of balancing the relation between trust and control. Second, taking the departure in the recent conceptualization of the balance between trust and control as an interactive process I discuss the challenges for management in handling this more subtle balancing of trust and control...

    The use of CAMAC controllers in an autonomous system of data acquisition and measurement is considered. The system consists of a control intelligence controller, memory modules, and user modules in the CAMAC standard. The controller and all the modules have an output into the highway and this permits to exchange data among them without using special external cables. To increase the servicing rate, an auxiliary controller which has direct access to memory and controls the user modules, is additionally connected to the data acquisition and measurement system. In this case, the intelligence controller is passive. The system of data acquisition can be realized in the form of a multiple system with branch usage. The controller module width is three units, and the controller incorporates the Intel-8080-type microprocessor and the following interfaces: of CAMAC highways, of interruption, of memory bootstrap, and of data sequence channel

    Miyamoto, Yoshiyuki; Higashigawa, Yuichi.

    1996-01-01

    The present invention provides a control rod terminating system in a BWR type nuclear power plant, which stops an induction electric motor as rapidly as possible to terminate the control rods. Namely, the control rod stopping system controls reactor power by inserting/withdrawing control rods into a reactor by driving them by the induction electric motor. The system is provided with a control device for controlling the control rods and a control device for controlling the braking device. The control device outputs a braking operation signal for actuating the braking device during operation of the control rods to stop the operation of the control rods. Further, the braking device has at least two kinds of breaks, namely, a first and a second brakes. The two kinds of brakes are actuated by receiving the brake operation signals at different timings. The brake device is used also for keeping the control rods after the stopping. Even if a stopping torque of each of the breaks is small, different two kinds of brakes are operated at different timings thereby capable of obtaining a large stopping torque as a total. (I.S.)

  15. Plasma position control device

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Takase, Haruhiko.

    1987-01-01

    Purpose: To conduct position control stably to various plasmas and reduce the burden on the control coil power source. Constitution: Among the proportional, integration and differentiation controls, a proportional-differentiation control section and an integration control section are connected in parallel. Then, a signal switching circuit is disposed to the control signal input section for the proportional-differentiation control section such that either a present position of plasmas or deviation between the present plasma position and an aimed value can be selected as a control signal depending on the control procedures or the state of the plasmas. For instance, if a rapid response is required for the control, the deviation between the present plasma position and the aimed value is selected as the input signal to conduct proportional, integration and differentiation controls. While on the other hand, if it is intended to reduce the burden on the control coil power source, it is adapted such that the control signal inputted to the proportional-differentiation control section itself can select the present plasma position.

Thus, since the resistive members project to provide a greater resistance to the coolants flowing between them and the control rod guide tube in the normal operation where the gripper is engaged to drive the control rod by the control rod drives, a major part of the coolant flowing into the control rod guide tube flows into the control rod. This enables to cool the control rod effectively and make the temperature distribution uniform for the coolant flowing from the upper end of the control rod guide tube to thereby attain the relaxation of the thermal stress resulted in the rectifying mechanisms or the likes.

    1987-01-01

    This patent describes a nuclear reactor including a core, cylindrical control rods, a single support means supporting the control rods from their upper ends in spaced apart positions and movable for displacing the control rods in their longitudinal direction between a first end position in which the control rods are fully inserted into the core and a second end position in which the control rods are retracted from the core, and guide means contacting discrete regions of the outer surface of each control rod at least when the control rods are in the vicinity of the second end position. The control rods are supported by the support means for longitudinal movement without rotation into and out of the core relative to the guide means to thereby cause the outer surface of the control rods to experience wear as a result of sliding contact with the guide means. The support means are so arranged with respect to the core and the guide means that it is incapable of rotation relative to the guide means. The improvement comprises displacement means being operatively coupled to a respective one of the control rods for periodically rotating the control rod in a single angular direction through an angle selected to change the locations on the outer surfaces of the control rods at which the control rods are contacted by the guide means during subsequent longitudinal movement of the control rods

    During the last decade or so, fuzzy logic control (FLC) has emerged as one of the most active and fruitful areas of research and development. The applications include industrial process control to medical diagnostic and financial markets. Many consumer products using this technology are available in the market place. FLC is best suited to complex ill-defined processes that can be controlled by a skilled human operator without much knowledge of their underlying dynamics. This lecture will cover the basic architecture and the design methodology of fuzzy logic controllers. FLC will be strongly based on the concepts of fuzzy set theory, introduced in first lecture. Some practical applications will also be discussed and presented. (author)

    The air pollution control equipment marketplace offers many competing technologies for controlling emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in air. If any technology was economically and technically superior under all conditions, it would be the only one on the market. In fact, each technology used to control VOCs is superior under some set of conditions. The reasons for choosing one control technology over another are situation-specific. Some general guidelines to VOC control technologies and the situations where each may be appropriate are presented in this article. The control technologies and applications are summarized in a table

    2005-01-01

    The LHCb experiment at CERN has a large number of custom electronic boards performing high-speed data-processing. Like in any large experiment the control and monitoring of these crate-mounted boards must be integrated into the overall control-system. Traditionally this has been done by using buses like VME on the back-plane of the crates. LHCb has chosen to equip every board with an embedded micro-controller and connecting them in a large Local Area Network. The intelligence of these devices allows complex (soft) real-time control and monitoring, required for modern powerful FPGA driven electronics. Moreover each board has its own, isolated control access path, which increases the robustness of the entire system. The system is now in pre-production at several sites and will go into full production during next year. The hardware and software will be discussed and experiences from the R&D and pre-production will be reviewed, with an emphasis on advantages and difficulties of this approach to board-control.

    1997-07-01

    McDermott Technology, Inc. (a subsidiary of Babcock ampersand Wilcox) is conducting the Advanced Emissions Control Development Project (AECDP) which is aimed at the development of practical, cost-effective strategies for reducing the emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAPS) from coal-fired electric utility plants. The need for such controls may arise as the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proceeds with implementation of requirements set forth in the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA's) of 1990. Promulgation of air toxics emissions regulations for electric utility plants could dramatically impact utilities burning coal, their industrial and residential customers, and the coal industry. AECDP project work will supply the information needed by utilities to respond to potential HAPs regulations in a timely, cost-effective, enviromnentally-sound manner which supports the continued use of the Nation's abundant reserves of coal, such as those in the State of Ohio. The development work is being carried out using the 10 MW Clean Environment Development Facility wherein air toxics emissions control strategies can be developed under controlled conditions. The specific objectives of the project are to (1) measure and understand production and partitioning of air toxics species for a variety of coals, (2) optimize the air toxics removal performance of conventional flue gas cleanup systems, (3) develop advanced air toxics emissions control concepts, (4) develop and validate air toxics emissions measurement and monitoring techniques, and (5) establish a comprehensive, self-consistent air toxics data library. This project is supported by the Department of Energy, the Ohio Coal Development Office within the Ohio Department of Development and Babcock ampersand Wilcox. A comprehensive assessment of HAP emissions from coal-fired electric utility boilers sponsored by the Department of Energy and the Electric Power Research Institute concluded that with the exception of

    1980-01-01

    To control a 1300 megawatt nuclear power plant, about 15000 plant parameters must be collected together to control and operate the plant. The control room design therefore is of particular importance. The main design criteria are: Required functions of the power plant process - Level of Automation - Ergonomics - Available Technology. Extensive analysis has resulted in a control room design method. This ensures that an objective solution will be reached. Resulting from this methodical approach are: 1. Scope, position and appearance of the instrumentation. 2. Scope, position and appearance of the operator controls. Process analysis dictates what instrumentation and operator controls are needed. The priority and importance of the control and instrumentation (this we define as the utilisation areas), dictates the rough layout of the control room. (orig./RW)

    1982-01-01

    Purpose: To improve the reactivity controlling characteristics by artificially controlling the leakage of neutron from a reactor and providing a controller for controlling the reactivity. Method: A reactor core is divided into several water gaps to increase the leakage of neutron, its reactivity is reduced, a gas-filled control rod or a fuel assembly is inserted into the gap as required, the entire core is coupled in a system to reduce the leakage of the neutron, and the reactivity is increased. The reactor shutdown is conducted by the conventional control rod, and to maintain critical state, boron density varying system is used together. Futher, a control rod drive is used with that similar to the conventional one, thereby enabling fast reactivity variation, and the positive reactivity can be obtained by the insertion, thereby improving the reactivity controlling characteristics.

    This patent describes a velocity control arrangement for a reciprocable, vertically oriented control rod for use in a nuclear reactor in a fluid medium, the control rod including a drive hub secured to and extending from one end therefrom. The control device comprises: a toroidally shaped control member spaced from and coaxially positioned around the hub and secured thereto by a plurality of spaced radial webs thereby providing an annular passage for fluid intermediate the hub and the toroidal member spaced therefrom in coaxial position. The side of the control member toward the control rod has a smooth generally conical surface. The side of the control member away from the control rod is formed with a concave surface constituting a single annular groove. The device also comprises inner and outer annular vanes radially spaced from one another and spaced from the side of the control member away from the control rod and positioned coaxially around and spaced from the hub and secured thereto by spaced radial webs thereby providing an annular passage for fluid intermediate the hub and the vanes. The vanes are angled toward the control member, the outer edge of the inner vane being closer to the control member and the inner edge of the outer vane being closer to the control member. When the control rod moves in the fluid in the direction toward the drive hub the vanes direct a flow of fluid turbulence which provides greater resistance to movement of the control rod in the direction toward the drive hub than in the other direction

    At present, 23 units of PWR type reactors have been operated in Japan since the start of Mihama Unit 1 operation in 1970 and various improvements have been made to upgrade operability of power stations as well as reliability and safety of power plants. As the share of nuclear power increases, further improvements of operating performance such as load following capability will be requested for power stations with more reliable and safer operation. This article outlined the reactor control system of PWR type reactors and described the control performance of power plants realized with those systems. The PWR control system is characterized that the turbine power is automatic or manually controlled with request of the electric power system and then the nuclear power is followingly controlled with the change of core reactivity. The system mainly consists of reactor automatic control system (control rod control system), pressurizer pressure control system, pressurizer water level control system, steam generator water level control system and turbine bypass control system.

    Electricity cannot be stored in large quantities. That is why the electricity supply and consumption are always almost equal in large power supply systems. If this balance were disturbed beyond stability, the system or a part of it would collapse until a new stable equilibrium is reached. The balance between supply and consumption is mainly maintained by controlling the power production, but also the electricity consumption or, in other words, the load is controlled. Controlling the load of the power supply system is important, if easily controllable power production capacity is limited. Temporary shortage of capacity causes high peaks in the energy price in the electricity market. Load control either reduces the electricity consumption during peak consumption and peak price or moves electricity consumption to some other time. The project Optimisation of Load Control is a part of the EDISON research program for distribution automation. The following areas were studied: Optimization of space heating and ventilation, when electricity price is time variable, load control model in power purchase optimization, optimization of direct load control sequences, interaction between load control optimization and power purchase optimization, literature on load control, optimization methods and field tests and response models of direct load control and the effects of the electricity market deregulation on load control.

    Purpose: To obtain the optimum controllability for the plasmas and the thermonuclear device by selectively executing control operation for proportion, integration and differentiation (PID) by first and second controllers respectively based on selection instruction signals. Constitution: Deviation between a vertical direction equilibrium position: Zp as the plasma status amount measured in a measuring section and an aimed value Zref thereof is inputted to a first PID selection controller. The first controller selectively executes one of the PID control operations in accordance with the first selection signal instruction instructed by a PID control operation instruction circuit. Further, Zp is also inputted to a second PID selection controller, which selectively executes one of the PID control operations in accordance with the second selection instruction signal in the same manner as in the first controller. The deviation amount u between operations signals u1 and u2 from the first and second PID selection controllers is inputted to a power source to thereby supply a predetermined current value to control coils that generate equilibrium magnetic fields for making the vertical direction equilibrium position of plasmas constant.

    In the field of automobile control technology, electronic was first adopted for the electronic fuel control as an answer to the exhaust gas regulations. The operations of the driving system, frame system or the automobile itself which is the combination of the two were optimized by adding sensors, computers, actuators, etc. to alleviate the burden of the driver, offering easier drivability and confortableness. For local driving control, measurement of distance up to obstacle has been practiced using the ultrasonic radar sensor. Research and development of microwave radar sensor have been carried out for years. Automatic driving has been a dream technology, and the study for the technology was started since early times. Remarkable progress was made recently in the navigation system for traffic control in wide area. New automobile traffic information communication and other systems are being developed. Historical description is made on the control and information systems for road transportation, dividing the period into the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generations. 10 references.

  16. Arbitrating Control of Control and Display Units

    2007-01-01

    The ARINC 739 Switch is a computer program that arbitrates control of two multi-function control and display units (MCDUs) between (1) a commercial flight-management computer (FMC) and (2) NASA software used in research on transport aircraft. (MCDUs are the primary interfaces between pilots and FMCs on many commercial aircraft.) This program was recently redesigned into a software library that can be embedded in research application programs. As part of the redesign, this software was combined with software for creating custom pages of information to be displayed on a CDU. This software commands independent switching of the left (pilot s) and right (copilot s) MCDUs. For example, a custom CDU page can control the left CDU while the FMC controls the right CDU. The software uses menu keys to switch control of the CDU between the FMC or a custom CDU page. The software provides an interface that enables custom CDU pages to insert keystrokes into the FMC s CDU input interface. This feature allows the custom CDU pages to manipulate the FMC as if it were a pilot.

    Mina Ratones environmental restoration project included petrological, structural,geophysical, hydrogeological and hydrogeochemical studies. The main objective of the geologic-structural and geophysical studies was the Albala granite structural characterization around the Mina Ratones uranium mine. The location of facies, fault zones (faults and dykes) as well as the distribution of some physical properties inside the rock massif was obtained for a granitic black of 900, 500, and 500 m. The geologic-structural and geophysical techniques applied to Mina Ratones provided a multidisciplinary approach for high resolution characterization of rock massif, and the structures potentially containing fluids,able to be applied to the hydrogeological modelling to a particular area. Geological studies included a detailed structural mapping of the area surrounding the mine (1:5,000 scale), the geometric, kinematics, and dynamics analysis of fractures of all scales, the petrology and geochemistry of fault rocks and altered areas surrounding fractures, and the microstructural studies of samples from surface and core lags. The construction of geostatistical models in two and three dimensions had helped to characterize the Mina Ratones rock massif showing the spatial distribution of fault zones, fracture intensity, granite composition heterogeneities, fluid-rock interaction zones, and physical properties.

    Full Text Available El análisis de las conexiones entre elementos fabricados en Bambú guadua (Guadua angustifolia Kunth laminado pegado prensado para un proyecto de vivienda, es mostrado en este artículo. El análisis se ejecutó en cuatro etapas: diseño, prueba de carga, simulación numérica y modelación por elementos finitos. El diseño se realizó por el método de los esfuerzos de trabajo. En la prueba de carga fueron medidos desplazamientos para conocer el comportamiento de las conexiones para diferentes incrementos de carga. La simulación numérica fue realizada en el programa ETABS® con la carga real impuesta en cada etapa de la prueba de carga. Finalmente, la modelación por elementos finitos se realizó en el programa ANSYS®. Se encontró que existen diferencias entre los resultados experimentales y los numéricos, las cuales pueden ser consecuencia de que las condiciones reales de la prueba de carga no corresponden exactamente a las consideraciones supuestas de diseño como nudos completamente rígidos o articulados.

    Full Text Available El objetivo principal de este trabajo es analizar los efectos de oferta de las ayudas comunitarias recibidas por Andalucía, concretamente del Marco de Apoyo Comunitario 1994-1999 (MAC 94-99. En particular, se examinan los efectos derivados de una mayor y mejor dotación de recursos productivos e infraestructuras sobre la producción y el empleo de la región, mediante la estimación, mediante técnicas de cointegración con series temporales, de una función de producción agregada para el sector privado de la economía en la que el stock de capital público aparece como un factor productivo separado y diferente, así como de una demanda de trabajo derivada de dicha función. Las simulaciones realizadas sugieren que las inversiones en infraestructuras financiadas con cargo al MAC 94-99 habrían hecho posible que la economía andaluza creciera en términos reales durante el período 1994-2001 a una tasa acumulativa del 3,42%, frente al crecimiento del 3,15% que hubiese experimentado de no recibir dichas inversiones. En cuanto al mercado de trabajo, los resultados obtenidos indican que el MAC 94-99 habría generado o mantenido una media de 79.034 empleos durante el período 1994-2001, lo que habría contribuido a reducir la tasa de paro en unos 2,87 puntos porcentuales.

    Full Text Available The development of aero-engine and aircraft industry is aimed to hypersonic technology, efficiency enhancements and pollutant emission reductions. This objective can only be reached by increasing the operating temperatures, utilising new materials which mechanical properties are retained up to high temperatures. SiC matrix composites reinforced with carbon fibres (C/SiC are good examples with very good bending and thermal shock resistance at temperatures up to 1600ºC as well as low density. However, the fact which currently inhibits the application of these materials is the high oxidation rate of carbon fibres at temperatures above 450ºC. In the first part of the paper, a review of the most important properties and oxidation mechanisms of C and SiC has been carried out. The influence of each material disposition, individually and as composite, has been analysed.

    El desarrollo de la industria aeroespacial se orienta actualmente hacia la tecnología hipersónica, el incremento en el rendimiento de las reacciones de combustión y la reducción de la emisión de contaminantes. Estos objetivos sólo pueden alcanzarse aumentando la temperatura de combustión, para lo cual es necesario desarrollar nuevos materiales que conserven sus propiedades mecánicas hasta temperaturas muy elevadas. Entre ellos se encuentran los materiales compuestos de matriz de SiC reforzada con fibra continua de carbono (C/SiC, cuyas propiedades más importantes son una elevada resistencia a flexión y al choque térmico desde temperatura ambiente hasta 1600ºCy su reducido peso específico. Sin embargo, el principal problema que acompaña a los materiales compuestos C/SiC es la elevada velocidad de oxidación de la fibra de carbono a partir de 450ºC. En la primera parte del trabajo se realiza una revisión de las características más relevantes del carbono y SiC, y de su comportamiento frente a la oxidación, tanto por separado como formando parte de materiales compuestos de matriz de SiC y fibra de C.

    The structural materials which are manufactured the pressure vessels of the BWR reactors undergo degradation in their mechanical properties mainly due to the damage produced by the fast neutrons (E> 1 MeV) coming from the reactor core. The mechanisms of neutron damage in this type of materials are experimentally studied, through the irradiation of vessel steel in experimental reactors for a quickly ageing. Alternately the neutron damage through steel irradiation with heavy ions is simulated. In this work the first results of the damage induced by irradiation of a similar steel to the vessel of a BWR reactor are shown. The irradiation was performed with fast neutrons (E> 1 MeV, fluence of 1.45 x 10{sup 18} n/cm{sup 2}) in the TRIGA Mark III Salazar reactor and separately with Ni{sup +3} ions in a Tandetrom accelerator (E= 4.8 MeV and an ion flux rank of 0.1 to 53 ions/A{sup 2}).

    Full Text Available Mn-Ga and Al-Ga mixed oxides have been prepared in all compositional range by a conventional co precipitation method and subsequent thermal treatments. In the Al-Ga mixed oxide system, solid solutions are observed for samples up to 50% Ga content, identifying only the γ-Al2O3 phase below 800 ºC and the α-Al2O3 phase for temperatures above 800 ºC. BET specific surface decreases significantly as Ga addition increases. Ga-addition to manganese oxide produce phases no thermodynamically stable, but very interesting from the catalytic point of view, i.e. MnO2 in samples with 10% Ga content and treated at 400 ºC. Increasing the temperature, biphasic materials composed by Mn3O4 (hausmannita y Mn2O3 (bixbyita phases are identified in the X-ray patterns for Ga contents > 20%. These data are complemented by the evolution of FT-IR and electronic spectra.

En el sistema Al-Ga, se observan soluciones sólidas hasta el 50% de Ga3+ identificándose la fase γ-Al2O3 por debajo de 800 ºC y la fase α-Al2O3 para temperaturas superiores. Las superficies específicas BET disminuyen con el incremento del contenido de Ga. La adición de Ga (10% en moles y 400 ºC al óxido de manganeso origina la obtención de fases termodinámicamente inestables, como el MnO2 (pirolusita, interesantes desde el punto de vista catalítico. El aumento de temperatura conduce a mezclas de fases Mn3O4 (hausmannita y Mn2O3 (bixbyita para contenidos de Ga mayores del 20%.

Using ab-initio computational model, based on the Density Funtional Theory (DFT, and starting from spacial group Fm-3m, we calculate lattice parameters, equilibrium energies and equations of state among other quantities. The energy minimization as a function of volume allows to obtain a attice constant of 15.861 Bohr. The results of electronic density of states (DOS show that the double Perovskite Ba2 InTaO6 has an indirect gap of ~ 4.25 eV.

  15. Óxidos con estructura tipo perovsquita laminar: síntesis, características estructurales y propiedades eléctricas

    Full Text Available The Aurivillius type oxides show a layered perovskite structure, built up by the interleaved of perovskite [An-1BnO3n+1] and [Bi2O2] sheets. The structural stability of these oxides is presented as a function of the ionic radii and lone pair of electrons (ns2 of cations. New mechanochemical activation synthesis methods have been used in order to facilitate the preparation of Aurivillius phases and to cheapen their production systems. Some Aurivillius ferro-piezoelectric and ionic conductors examples are shown. The mesostructure and ferro-piezoelectric properties are improved by processing materials from mechanochemically activated amorphous powdered precursors. Change in unit-cell volume of these materials, by means of cationic substitutions, are responsible for the changes of their Tc. Ionic conductivity in Aurivillius oxides occurs by hopping between neighboring oxygen positions within perovskite layer while ion migration within bismuth layer would have a negligible contribution. Mechanical processes can recycle some of these materials, damaged by consecutive thermal treatments.

    Los óxidos tipo Aurivillius presentan una estructura perovsquita laminar, constituida por el apilamiento de capas tipo perovsquita [An-1BnO3n+1] y capas [Bi2O2]. Se estudia la estabilidad estructural de estos óxidos en función de los radios iónicos de los cationes que participan en ellos y de la influencia de pares electrónicos libres (ns2 asociados a los cationes que constituyen la capa de bismuto. Se han puesto a punto métodos alternativos que permiten optimizar las condiciones de síntesis y abaratar los sistemas de producción, como el de activación mecanoquímica. Se muestran ejemplos de fases de Aurivillius, en los que se pone de manifiesto las propiedades ferro-piezoeléctricas y de conductividad iónica de estos materiales. La mesoestructura y propiedades ferro-piezoeléctricas se ven netamente mejoradas gracias a la utilización del método mecanoquímico. Se demuestra que la Tc es fuertemente dependiente de la estructura cristalina, la cual depende del tamaño y naturaleza de los cationes que constituyen cada fase. La conductividad iónica en estos materiales se produce por salto de iones oxígeno entre posiciones ocupadas y vacantes en la capa perovsquita, mientras que es insensible a la presencia de vacantes aniónicas en la capa de bismuto. Tratamientos mecánicos permiten el reciclado de ciertos materiales deteriorados en ciclos térmicos.

    Full Text Available In this work some aspects related to the synthesis of nickel aluminate as a ceramic material by the sol–gel processing, are studied. The solids obtained are analyzed by atomic absorption and x ray flourescence in order to determine their chemical composition. Texture is investigated using N2 adsorption–desorption isotherms, the structure is verified by x ray diffraction, and the morphology is looked using scanning electron microscope. The results show that the hydrolysis of aluminum tri–sec–butoxyde in presence of nickel nitrate at 80 °C and pH 10, produces a xerogel whose treatment at 900 °C results in a bright blue, fine, porous, spinel type solid, NiAl2O4. Texture data of these materials as shown by type IV isotherms with hysteresis loops type E; it verifies that hydrolysis temperature does not influence the surface area and confirms that these solids have a monomodal pore size distribution.En este trabajo se estudian algunos aspectos asociados con la síntesis, mediante procesamiento sol–gel, del aluminato de níquel. A los sólidos obtenidos se les determina la composición elemental mediante absorción atómica y fluorescencia de rayos–X, se les investiga la textura por sortometría de N2 a 77 K, se les analiza la estructura por difracción de rayos–X y se les examina la morfología con microscopía electrónica de barrido. Los resultados muestran que la hidrólisis a 80 °C y pH 10 de tri–sec–butóxido de aluminio en presencia de nitrato de níquel conduce a un xerogel cuyo tratamiento a 900 °C resulta en un sólido azul brillante, finamente dividido, poroso y altamente compatible con la espinela NiAl2O4. La textura de estos materiales se manifiesta por isotermas adsorción–desorción de nitrógeno tipo IV y anillos de histéresis tipo E; se verifica que la temperatura de hidrólisis no ejerce una marcada influencia sobre el área superficial de los sólidos y se comprueba que los sólidos poseen una distribución monomodal de tamaños de poro.

    Full Text Available Se realizó un estudio del efecto de la porosidad y el tamaño de poro sobre las propiedades de transporte de hidrógeno en un medio poroso desordenado, utilizando Monte Carlo Cinético. Se corroboró la aleatoriedad de los poros en el medio, inscrito dentro de un retículo cúbico simple, calculando el umbral de percolación a partir del parámetro de orden. En cuanto al transporte de masa, los resultados sugieren que el tamaño del poro, variado entre 1 y 5 nm, sólo afecta a la difusividad efectiva si los valores de porosidad se encuentran cerca al umbral de percolación, y que dicha difusividad es prácticamente independiente de la concentración de las moléculas de H2. La simulación permitió caracterizar el comportamiento difusional anómalo en función de la porosidad, siendo este consecuente con el reportado previamente para retículos bidimensionales.

Utilizamos una versión modificada del “Point Matching Method” para resolver el problema deidentificación de parámetros en las ecuaciones logísticas y hemos obtenido una nueva versión de la ecuación de Bass que nos simula la tendencia real de la citada variable. Tal metodología se corresponde con la particular evolución de los diferentes destinos de atracción turística en el Archipiélago, que han completado sus ciclos de vida a despecho de intereses exógenos, asociados con la “particular” vinculación histórica de Canarias con la conocida Expansión Atlántica de ciertos países europeos. En concreto, basándonos en estudios previos podemos afrontar nuestro estudio al modo de la Teoría de la Lucha por Recursos Escasos, tal como fuera formulada por Vito Volterra. Por lo demás, los shocks de etiología coyuntural han sido enfrentados con un tratamiento de carácter estocástico, que nos ha permitido diferenciar la estructura epistemológica inicial de aquellos efectos puntuales, que habremos de asignar a la coyuntura económica de los países emisores de visitantes a nuestras Islas

To the traditional gravi-magnetometric methods employed to define the model from 2D, 2½D and 3D inversions, we have incorporated the following ones to our study: a Semi-empirical methods: Euler and Werner deconvolution, analytical signal and gradients, which allow finding lineaments, contacts and faults. b Determination of the Curie isoterm from spectral analysis of magnetic anomalies (determination of the basement top and bottom depths and the Curie temperature. Its rises or falls are important to understand the actual crustal state. c Studies of the crustal characteristics (thickness and densities, isostatic balance from the geoid undulations N, and the future mobility. d Double inversion of gravity and geoid, in order to obtain a more consistent model. Alter the application of this methodology to the Claromecó basin, very important lineaments were found, and the isostatic balance was certified. The basin was found to present a sedimentary thickness of one third the normal crustal thickness of the area.

  4. Genetic-Structural relations in some types of spanish uranium deposits; Relaciones genetico-estructurales de algunos tipos de mienralizaciones uraniferas espanolas

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Alia Medina, M

    1962-07-01

    On the spanish hercynian areas there are different types of uraniferous deposits, which may be classified in the following groups: Group I, high temperature magmatic deposits, Group II, low temperature veins and Group III supergenic deposits, generated by weathering of the former ones or by lixiviation of the intra granitic uranium. The deposits belonging to Group I are founding the hercynian ge anticlinal; those of Groups II and III, chiefly in the eugeosyncline. The explanation suggested for these genetic-structural relationships assumes that, in the ge anticlinal, uranium would migrate from the dioritic magmas to form and high temperature deposits. In the eugeosyncline, a large fraction of the uranium would migrate towards more differentiated granites, in which it might partially remain or from which it might have been finally concentrated in the epithermal veins or by later tectonic actions. The Group III deposits ar more frequent in the eugeosyncline, due to the greater abundance of more differentiated intrusive rocks. (Author) 16 refs.

    Prompted by manager concerns about span of control, a large, integrated health system set out to determine if span of control really mattered. Was there something to it, or was it just an excuse for poor performance? A team of middle managers studied the problem and ultimately demonstrated a strong relationship between span of control and employee engagement. Consequently, it was decided to add 4 management positions to note the effect. One year later, positive changes were observed in employee engagement scores in all 4 areas. This study suggests careful review of manager spans of control to address the untoward effects of large spans of control on employee engagement.

It is shown that the Youla parameterization will give a residual vector directly in connection with the fault diagnosis part of the fault tolerant feedback controller. It turns out...... that there is a separation be-tween the feedback controller and the fault tolerant part. The closed loop feedback properties are handled by the nominal feedback controller and the fault tolerant part is handled by the design of the Youla parameter. The design of the fault tolerant part will not affect the design...... of the nominal feedback con-troller....

    Purpose: To secure the reactor operation safety by the provision of a fluid pressure detecting section for control rod driving fluid and a control rod interlock at the midway of the flow pass for supplying driving fluid to the control rod drives. Constitution: Between a driving line and a direction control valve are provided a pressure detecting portion, an alarm generating device, and a control rod inhibition interlock. The driving fluid from a driving fluid source is discharged by way of a pump and a manual valve into the reactor in which the control rods and reactor fuels are contained. In addition, when the direction control valve is switched and the control rods are inserted and extracted by the control rod drives, the pressure in the driving line is always detected by the pressure detection section, whereby if abnormal pressure is resulted, the alarm generating device is actuated to warn the abnormality and the control rod inhibition interlock is actuated to lock the direction control valve thereby secure the safety operation of the reactor.

  13. A national control system

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Larsson, A.

    1975-01-01

    An effective control of nuclear fissionable material is dependent on three different kinds of control, the industry - laboratory management, a national control system and an international safeguards system. The national systems of control differ greatly between various industrialized countries. Two principal reasons for fact can be mentioned. The type and the amounts for nuclear material may be different depending upon the stage of development of the nuclear industry in the country in question. Another reason may be that the country may wish to establish a very elaborate national system of control in order to minimize the IAEA control as much as possible. The two safeguards agreements between the Agency and Sweden on one hand and the Agency and Japan on the other hand can serve as examples for the understanding of the latitude of the IAEA safeguards system under NPT due to the influence of the national control system. If it thus is apparent that the national control system is strongly interrelated to the international safeguards system it is equally influenced by the control and accountancy systems which exist at the nuclear plants and development laboratories. A detailed study of national control systems and their relations to plant management control would fall outside the scope of this article. Some important features will however be examined. (author)

    Okutani, Tetsuro.

    1988-01-01

    Purpose: To provide a simple and economical control rod drive using a control circuit requiring no pulse circuit. Constitution: Control rods in a BWR type reactor are driven by hydraulic pressure and inserted or withdrawn in the direction of applying the hydraulic pressure. The direction of the hydraulic pressure is controlled by a direction control valve. Since the driving for the control rod is extremely important in view of the operation, a self diagnosis function is disposed for rapid inspection of possible abnormality. In the present invention, two driving contacts are disposed each by one between the both ends of a solenoid valve of the direction control valve for driving the control rod and the driving power source, and diagnosis is conducted by alternately operating them. Therefore, since it is only necessary that the control circuit issues a driving instruction only to one of the two driving contacts, the pulse circuit is no more required. Further, since the control rod driving is conducted upon alignment of the two driving instructions, the reliability of the control rod drive can be improved. (Horiuchi, T.)

  15. Integrated Biological Control

    JOHNSON, A.R.

    2002-01-01

    Biological control is any activity taken to prevent, limit, clean up, or remediate potential environmental, health and safety, or workplace quality impacts from plants, animals, or microorganisms. At Hanford the principal emphasis of biological control is to prevent the transport of radioactive contamination by biological vectors (plants, animals, or microorganisms), and where necessary, control and clean up resulting contamination. Other aspects of biological control at Hanford include industrial weed control (e.g.; tumbleweeds), noxious weed control (invasive, non-native plant species), and pest control (undesirable animals such as rodents and stinging insects; and microorganisms such as molds that adversely affect the quality of the workplace environment). Biological control activities may be either preventive (apriori) or in response to existing contamination spread (aposteriori). Surveillance activities, including ground, vegetation, flying insect, and other surveys, and apriori control actions, such as herbicide spraying and placing biological barriers, are important in preventing radioactive contamination spread. If surveillance discovers that biological vectors have spread radioactive contamination, aposteriori control measures, such as fixing contamination, followed by cleanup and removal of the contamination to an approved disposal location are typical response functions. In some cases remediation following the contamination cleanup and removal is necessary. Biological control activities for industrial weeds, noxious weeds and pests have similar modes of prevention and response

    1986-01-01

    To improve the efficiency and to cut down on cost at the uranium mine at Roessing in SWA/Namibia, the control of all the various plants in the complex has been concentrated in one centralised control system. The processing of uranium ores is also discussed. The selection of future operators of the control system was made at the start of the project. Considerable effort went into conceptualising the role and skill requirements for their job, as well as into their training. The project was concluded in 1984. The original hardware installed in the central room was configured with two basic operating stations controlling the Uranium Plant and an additional station controlling the Acid Plant. Since full implementation of the central process control system, the uranium recovery has been significantly increased whilst tighter control of process parameters has enabled reductions to be made in consumable and utilities usage

    Bick, Christian; Kolodziejski, Christoph; Timme, Marc

    2014-01-01

    Predictive feedback control is an easy-to-implement method to stabilize unknown unstable periodic orbits in chaotic dynamical systems. Predictive feedback control is severely limited because asymptotic convergence speed decreases with stronger instabilities which in turn are typical for larger target periods, rendering it harder to effectively stabilize periodic orbits of large period. Here, we study stalled chaos control, where the application of control is stalled to make use of the chaotic, uncontrolled dynamics, and introduce an adaptation paradigm to overcome this limitation and speed up convergence. This modified control scheme is not only capable of stabilizing more periodic orbits than the original predictive feedback control but also speeds up convergence for typical chaotic maps, as illustrated in both theory and application. The proposed adaptation scheme provides a way to tune parameters online, yielding a broadly applicable, fast chaos control that converges reliably, even for periodic orbits of large period

    Purpose: To ensure the scram operation of a control rod by the reliable detection for the position of control rods. Constitution: A permanent magnet is provided to the lower portion of a connecting rod in engagement with a control rod and a tube having a plurality of lead switches arranged axially therein in a predetermined pitch is disposed outside of the control rod drives. When the control rod moves upwardly in the scram operation, the lead switches are closed successively upon passage of the permanent magnet to operate the electrical circuit provided by way of each of the lead switches. Thus, the position for the control rod during the scram can reliably be determined and the scram characteristic of the control rod can be recognized. (Furukawa, Y.)

    Purpose: To protect the reactor floor by alleviating the shock imparted to the reactor floor by a dropped control rod when a wire rope accidentally breaks. Constitution: A control rod is hung by wire rope from a control rod drive, and shock absorbers are mounted at the upper and lower portions of the control rod. The outer diameter of the upper shock absorber is made larger than the inner diameter of a control rod inserting hole formed in the reactor core. If the control rod drops, the upper absorber is stopped at the upper tapered portion of the inserting hole. Thus, the dropping energy of the control rod can be sufficiently absorbed by the upper and lower shock absorbers. (Kamimura, M.)

    1998-01-01

    In order to achieve the two-fold goal of maximizing the energy obtained from reactor fuel and ensuring the large flexibility of plant operation in respect to safety regulations and keeping the reactor integrity the control of PWRs is generally based on real time monitoring and analysing of independent neutronic parameters: thermal power release, axial power distribution in the core and temperatures of the primary loop. Two control chains more or less coupled according to the control chosen mode are in charge of the control of these parameters. With the brief history of control in French power reactors the advanced X control mode adopted by Framatome for N4 plants is described in detail. A summary of N4 reactor control and protection system is included

    This paper reports that instrument manufacturers must develop standard network interfaces to pull together interrelated systems such as automatic start-up, optimization programs, and online diagnostic systems. In the past individual control system manufacturers have developed their own data highways with proprietary hardware and software designs. In the future, electric utilities will require that future systems, irrespective of manufacturer, should be able to communicate with each other. Until now the manufactures of control systems have not agreed on the standard high-speed data highway system. Currently, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), in conjunction with several electric utilities and equipment manufactures, is working on developing a standard protocol for communicating between various manufacturers' control systems. According to N. Michael of Sargent and Lundy, future control room designs will require that more of the control and display functions be accessible from the control room through CRTs. There will be less emphasis on traditional hard-wired control panels

    Predictive feedback control is an easy-to-implement method to stabilize unknown unstable periodic orbits in chaotic dynamical systems. Predictive feedback control is severely limited because asymptotic convergence speed decreases with stronger instabilities which in turn are typical for larger target periods, rendering it harder to effectively stabilize periodic orbits of large period. Here, we study stalled chaos control, where the application of control is stalled to make use of the chaotic, uncontrolled dynamics, and introduce an adaptation paradigm to overcome this limitation and speed up convergence. This modified control scheme is not only capable of stabilizing more periodic orbits than the original predictive feedback control but also speeds up convergence for typical chaotic maps, as illustrated in both theory and application. The proposed adaptation scheme provides a way to tune parameters online, yielding a broadly applicable, fast chaos control that converges reliably, even for periodic orbits of large period.

    In this paper a review of control methods for high performance PWM inverter-fed induction motor drives is presented. Starting from the description of an induction motor by the help of the space vectors, three basic control strategic are discussed. As first, the most popular Field Oriented Control (FOC) is described. Secondly, the Direct Torque and Flux vector Control (DTFC) method, which - in contrast to FOC - depart from idea of coordinate transformation and analogy with DC motor, is briefly characterized. The last group is based on Feedback Linearization Control (FLC) and can be easy combined with sliding mode control. The simulation and experimental oscillograms that illustrate the performance of the discussed control strategies are shown. (orig.) 35 refs.

    The field of artificial intelligence (Al) has generated many useful ideas and techniques that can be integrated into the design of control systems. It is believed and, for special cases, has been demonstrated, that integration of Al into control systems would provide the necessary tools for solving many of the complex problems that present control techniques and Al algorithms are unable to do, individually. However, this integration requires the development of basic understanding and new fundamentals to provide scientific bases for achievement of its potential. This book presents an overview of some of the latest research studies in the area of intelligent control systems. These papers present techniques for formulation of intelligent control, and development of the rule-based control systems. Papers present applications of control systems in nuclear power plants and HVAC systems

    The use of a thyristor Graetz bridge as the interface between the 3-phase ac source and the superconducting magnet (SM) has become standard in superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES). In the future, the bridge will be DDC (direct digital control) controlled by microprocessors and the higher computations, such as the strategy for economical operation of the SMES plant will be computed by a large-scale computer resulting in a hierarchical control scheme. Some of the problems of DDC control of a SM are discussed, control schemes for effective and reactive power are compared, and the control system for the sequential control of a 0.5 MJ pulsed magnet, which is under construction, is described

    Purpose: To reliably prevent dangerous operation in the control of the position of the control rod by checking for abnormal pulse motor coil excitation voltage and, at the time of occurrence of abnormality, immediately holding the control rod stationary lest it should be moved to an unsafe position, this being accomplished excitation from a compensating excitation system. Constitution: In an FBR reactor, a circuit for memorizing the correct output states of individual drive signals at arbitrary instants and consequtively producing the memorized results is provided, and the output of the circuit and the actual drive signal are compared at all times to discriminate whether the drive signal being compared is normal or not. When the actual drive signal is abnormal, a series signal varying after a predetermined pattern is shifted to enable replacement of the actual drive signal, so that irrespective of whether the problem drive signal is ''on'' or ''off'', a drive signal of the correct pattern may be supplied to the pulse motor to hold the control rod and prevent it from being moved toward the dangerous side due to its own weight or other causes.

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available Price control at macro level is part of integral macro marketing strategic control system, or more precisely, part of social marketing mix control. Price impact is direct, if it is regarded in the context of needs satisfaction, and indirect, within the context of resource allocation. These two patterns of price impact define control mechanism structuring. Price control in sense of its direct impact at process of need satisfaction should comprise qualitative and quantitative level of needs satisfaction at a given price level and its structure, informational dimension of price and different disputable forms of corporate pricing policies. Control of price allocation function is based at objectives of macro marketing system management in the area of resource allocation and the role of price as allocator in contemporary market economies. Control process is founded, on one hand, at theoretical models of correlation between price and demand in different market structures, and on the other hand, at complex limits that price as allocator has, and which make whole control process even more complex because of reduction of the degree of determinism in functioning of contemporary economic systems. Control of price allocation function must be continuous and dynamic process if it is to provide for convergence with environmental changes and if it is to provide for placing control systems at micro marketing levels in the function of socially valid objectives.

    The Tango control system framework allows you to control an accelerator complex as well as single equipment. The framework contains the communication bus with the standard communication modes (synchronous, asynchronous, event driven) as well as the basic hardware access modules, GUI tools and development kits, bindings to commercial products (LabView, Matlab, IgorPro) and services (administration, archiving, access control) to set up a control system. Tango was mainly developed by several synchrotron light sources that have to support not only the accelerator complex but also a lot of experimental end stations. For synchrotron experiments we have to control the whole process from basic hardware access over data taking to data analysis. This paper describes in the first part the special features of Tango allowing flexible experiment control. The dynamic configuration, the rapid hardware interface development and the sequencing and scanning framework are some examples. The second part gives an overview of some packages developed in the Tango community for experiment control: A HKL library for diffraction computation and diffractometer control, a library to control 2D detectors and a data analysis workbench with workflow engine for on-line and off-line data analysis. These packages are not part of Tango and can be used with other control systems. (author)

  16. Fission reactor control rod

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Irie, Tomoo.

    1991-01-01

    The present invention concerns a control rod in a PWR type reactor. A control rod has an inner cladding tube and an outer cladding tube disposed coaxially, and a water draining hole is formed at the inside of the inner cladding tube. Neutron absorbers are filled in an annular gap between the outer cladding tube and the inner cladding tube. The water draining hole opens at the lower end thereof to the top end of the control rod and at the upper end thereof to the side of the upper end plug of the control rod. If the control rod is dropped to a control rod guide thimble for reactor scram, coolants from the control rod guide thimble are flown from the lower end of the water draining hole and discharged from the upper end passing through the water draining hole. In this way, water from the control rod guide thimble is removed easily when the control rod is dropped. Further, the discharging amount of water itself is reduced by the provision of the water draining hole. Accordingly, sufficient control rod dropping speed can be attained. (I.N.)

    2013-01-01

    Quality control is a constant priority in electrical, mechanical, aeronautical, and nuclear engineering – as well as in the vast domain of electronics, from home appliances to computers and telecommunications. Quality Control Applications provides guidance and valuable insight into quality control policies; their methods, their implementation, constant observation and associated technical audits. What has previously been a mostly mathematical topic is translated here for engineers concerned with the practical implementation of quality control. Once the fundamentals of quality control are established, Quality Control Applications goes on to develop this knowledge and explain how to apply it in the most effective way. Techniques are described and supported using relevant, real-life, case studies to provide detail and clarity for those without a mathematical background. Among the many practical examples, two case studies dramatize the importance of quality assurance: A shot-by-shot analysis of the errors made ...

    2014-01-01

    This brief presents a description of a new modelling framework for nonlinear/geometric control theory. The framework is intended to be—and shown to be—feedback-invariant. As such, Tautological Control Systems provides a platform for understanding fundamental structural problems in geometric control theory. Part of the novelty of the text stems from the variety of regularity classes, e.g., Lipschitz, finitely differentiable, smooth, real analytic, with which it deals in a comprehensive and unified manner. The treatment of the important real analytic class especially reflects recent work on real analytic topologies by the author. Applied mathematicians interested in nonlinear and geometric control theory will find this brief of interest as a starting point for work in which feedback invariance is important. Graduate students working in control theory may also find Tautological Control Systems to be a stimulating starting point for their research.

    Applied Control System Design examines several methods for building up systems models based on real experimental data from typical industrial processes and incorporating system identification techniques. The text takes a comparative approach to the models derived in this way judging their suitability for use in different systems and under different operational circumstances. A broad spectrum of control methods including various forms of filtering, feedback and feedforward control is applied to the models and the guidelines derived from the closed-loop responses are then composed into a concrete self-tested recipe to serve as a check-list for industrial engineers or control designers. System identification and control design are given equal weight in model derivation and testing to reflect their equality of importance in the proper design and optimization of high-performance control systems. Readers’ assimilation of the material discussed is assisted by the provision of problems and examples. Most of these e...

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Resumen: La interacción entre variables es una característica inherente de los procesos multivariables, que dificulta su operación y el diseño de sus sistemas de control. Bajo el paradigma de Control por desacoplo se agrupan un conjunto de metodologías, que tradicionalmente han estado orientadas a eliminar o reducir la interacción, y que recientemente algunos investigadores han reorientado con objetivos de solucionar un problema tan complejo como es el control multivariable. Parte del material descrito en este artículo es bien conocido en el campo del control de procesos, pero la mayor parte de él son resultados de varios años de investigación de los autores en los que han primado la generalización del problema, la búsqueda de soluciones de fácil implementación y la combinación de bloques elementales de control PID. Esta conjunción de intereses provoca que no siempre se pueda conseguir un desacoplo perfecto, pero que sí se pueda conseguir una considerable reducción de la interacción en el nivel básico de la pirámide de control, en beneficio de otros sistemas de control que ocupan niveles jerárquicos superiores. El artículo resume todos los aspectos básicos del Control por desacoplo y su aplicación a dos procesos representativos: una planta experimental de cuatro tanques acoplados y un modelo 4×4 de un sistema experimental de calefacción, ventilación y aire acondicionado. Abstract: The interaction between variables is inherent in multivariable processes and this fact may complicate their operation and control system design. Under the paradigm of decoupling control, several methodologies that traditionally have been addressed to cancel or reduce the interactions are gathered. Recently, this approach has been reoriented by several researchers with the aim to solve such a complex problem as the multivariable control. Parts of the material in this work are well known in the process control field; however, most of them are

  5. Reset Control Systems

    CERN Document Server

    Baños, Alfonso

    2012-01-01

    Reset Control Systems addresses the analysis for reset control treating both its basic form which requires only that the state of the controller be reinitialized to zero (the reset action) each time the tracking error crosses zero (the reset condition), and some useful variations of the reset action (partial reset with fixed or variable reset percentage) and of the reset condition (fixed or variable reset band and anticipative reset). The issues regarding reset control – concepts and motivation; analysis tools; and the application of design methodologies to real-world examples – are given comprehensive coverage. The text opens with an historical perspective which moves from the seminal work of the Clegg integrator and Horowitz FORE to more recent approaches based on impulsive/hybrid control systems and explains the motivation for reset compensation. Preliminary material dealing with notation, basic definitions and results, and with the definition of the control problem under study is also included. The fo...

    2006-01-01

    A flight control actuation system comprises a controller, electromechanical actuator and a pneumatic actuator. During normal operation, only the electromechanical actuator is needed to operate a flight control surface. When the electromechanical actuator load level exceeds 40 amps positive, the controller activates the pneumatic actuator to offset electromechanical actuator loads to assist the manipulation of flight control surfaces. The assistance from the pneumatic load assist actuator enables the use of an electromechanical actuator that is smaller in size and mass, requires less power, needs less cooling processes, achieves high output forces and adapts to electrical current variations. The flight control actuation system is adapted for aircraft, spacecraft, missiles, and other flight vehicles, especially flight vehicles that are large in size and travel at high velocities.

    The goal of this book is to serve both as a practical technical reference and a resource for gaining a fuller understanding of the state of the art of spacecraft momentum control systems, specifically looking at control moment gyroscopes (CMGs). As a result, the subject matter includes theory, technology, and systems engineering. The authors combine material on system-level architecture of spacecraft that feature momentum-control systems with material about the momentum-control hardware and software. This also encompasses material on the theoretical and algorithmic approaches to the control of space vehicles with CMGs. In essence, CMGs are the attitude-control actuators that make contemporary highly agile spacecraft possible. The rise of commercial Earth imaging, the advances in privately built spacecraft (including small satellites), and the growing popularity of the subject matter in academic circles over the past decade argues that now is the time for an in-depth treatment of the topic. CMGs are augmented ...

    1991-01-01

    The authors have developed a new power supply controller which would combine 20-bit precision, simple interfacing, and versatile software control. It performs many tasks internal to the power supply and also communicates with an external host computer. Parameters can be entered and/or read over a serial link using one of the 82 command words. In addition, an optional remote control panel can be located up to thousands of feet away. This new controller will reduce the software development time normally spent by the user, while increasing the reliability of the system. The cost is less than buying the equivalent separate CAMAC system. Nonvolatile memory remembers all configuration data; one generic controller can thus be programmed to use anywhere from the smallest power supply to the largest. The controllers will be used at the Clinton P. Anderson Meson Facility at Los Alamos

    Highlights: •ISTTOK fast controller. •All real-time diagnostic and actuators were integrated in the control platform. •100 μs control cycle under the MARTe framework. •The ISTTOK control system upgrade provides reliable operation with an improved operational space. -- Abstract: The ISTTOK tokamak (Ip = 4 kA, BT = 0.5 T, R = 0.46 m, a = 0.085 m) is one of the few tokamaks with regular alternate plasma current (AC) discharges scientific programme. In order to improve the discharge stability and to increase the number of AC discharge cycles a novel control system was developed. The controller acquires data from 50 analog-to-digital converter (ADC) channels of real-time diagnostics and measurements: tomography, Mirnov coils, interferometer, electric probes, sine and cosine probes, bolometer, current delivered by the power supplies, loop voltage and plasma current. The system has a control cycle of 100 μs during which it reads all the diagnostics connected to the advanced telecommunications computing architecture (ATCA) digitizers and sends the control reference to ISTTOK actuators. The controller algorithms are executed on an Intel{sup ®} Q8200 chip with 4 cores running at 2.33 GHz and connected to the I/O interfaces through an ATCA based environment. The real-time control system was programmed in C++ on top of the Multi-threaded Application Real-Time executor (MARTe). To extend the duration of the AC discharges and the plasma stability a new magnetising field power supply was commissioned and the horizontal and vertical field power supplies were also upgraded. The new system also features a user-friendly interface based on HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and Javascript to configure the controller parameters. This paper presents the ISTTOK control system and the consequent update of real-time diagnostics and actuators.

Mathematical Control Theory is a rapidly growing field which provides strict theoretical and computational tools for dealing with problems arising in electrical and aerospace engineering, automatics, robotics, applied chemistry, and biology etc. Control methods are also involved in questions pertaining to the development of countries in the South, such as wastewater treatment, agronomy, epidemiology, population dynamics, control of industrial and natural bio-reactors. Since most of these natural processes are highly nonlinear, the tools of nonlinear control are essential for the modelling and control of such processes. At present regular courses in Mathematical Control Theory are rarely included in the curricula of universities, and very few researchers receive enough background in the field. Therefore it is important to organize specific activities in the form of schools to provide the necessary background for those embarking on research in this field. The school at the Abdus Salam ICTP consisted of several minicourses intended to provide an introduction to various topics of Mathematical Control Theory, including Linear Control Theory (finite and infinite-dimensional), Nonlinear Control, and Optimal Control.

  18. The arms race control

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Nemo, J.

    2010-01-01

    Written in 1961, this paper presents the content of a book entitled 'The arms race control' where the author outlined the difference between disarmament and arms control, described the economic and moral role of arms race, the importance of force balance for international security. He wandered whether arms control could ensure this balance and whether nuclear balance meant force balance. Force balance then appears to be a precarious and unsteady component of international security. He commented the challenges of disarmament, recalled some arguments for a nuclear disarmament. Then he discussed what would be an arms control with or without disarmament (either nuclear or conventional)

  19. An integrated gyrotron controller

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Michel, Georg, E-mail: michel@ipp.mpg.de; Sachtleben, Juergen

    2011-10-15

    The ECRH system of W7-X is composed of 10 independent gyrotron modules. Each module consists of one gyrotron and its peripherals such as power supplies, cooling plants and distributed PLC systems. The fast real-time control functions such as the timing of the two high voltage supplies, trigger pulses, protection, modulation and communication with the central control of W7-X, is implemented in an integrated controller which is described in this paper. As long-term maintainability and sustainability are important for nuclear fusion experiments, the choice fell on an FPGA-based design which is exclusively based on free (as in 'freedom') software and configuration code. The core of the controller consists of a real-time Java virtual machine (JVM) that provides the TCP-IP connectivity as well as more complicated control functions, and which interacts with the gyrotron-specific hardware. Both the gyrotron-specific hardware and the JVM are implemented on the same FPGA, which is the main component of the controller. All 10 controllers are currently completed and operational. All parameters and functions are accessible via Ethernet. Due to the open, FPGA-based design, most hardware modifications can be made via the network as well. This paper discusses the capabilities of the controllers and their integration into the central W7-X control.

Yet it is claimed that work becomes increasingly “knowledge intensive” and that organizations rely heavily...... for their productivity on the knowledge and creativity of their work force. In this type of “knowledge work,” the strong focus on vertical control is insufficient as it fails to account for the important operative and horizontal interactions upon which many contemporary organizations depend. Drawing on practice theory...... and an ethnographic study of engineering work, this paper theorizes control as a form of work that does not only belong to formal management, but is dispersed among various work activities, including horizontal ones.

    1992-01-01

    The guideline of the Ministry for Environmental Protection for controlling radioactive waste with a negligible development of heat defines in detail what data are relevant to the control of radioactive waste and should be followed up on and included in a system of documentation. By introducing the AVK (product control system for tracing the course of waste disposal) the operators of German nuclear power plants have taken the requirements of this guideline into account. In particular, possibilities for determining the degree of radioactivity of radioactive waste, which the BMU-guidelines call for, were put into practice by means of the programming technology of the product control system's module MOPRO.

    Sellers, David; Friedman, Hannah; Haasl, Tudi; Bourassa, Norman; Piette, Mary Ann

    2003-05-01

    The ''Control System Design Guide'' (Design Guide) provides methods and recommendations for the control system design process and control point selection and installation. Control systems are often the most problematic system in a building. A good design process that takes into account maintenance, operation, and commissioning can lead to a smoothly operating and efficient building. To this end, the Design Guide provides a toolbox of templates for improving control system design and specification. HVAC designers are the primary audience for the Design Guide. The control design process it presents will help produce well-designed control systems that achieve efficient and robust operation. The spreadsheet examples for control valve schedules, damper schedules, and points lists can streamline the use of the control system design concepts set forth in the Design Guide by providing convenient starting points from which designers can build. Although each reader brings their own unique questions to the text, the Design Guide contains information that designers, commissioning providers, operators, and owners will find useful.

    A high pressure water injection recycling system comprising injection pipelines of a high pressure water injection system and a flow rate control means in communication with a pool of a pressure control chamber is disposed to a feedwater system of a BWR type reactor. In addition, the flow rate control means is controlled by a power control device comprising a scram impossible transient event judging section, a required injection flow rate calculation section for high pressure water injection system and a control signal calculation section. Feed water flow rate to be supplied to the reactor is controlled upon occurrence of a scram impossible transient event of the reactor. The scram impossible transient event is judged based on reactor output signals and scram operation demand signals and injection flow rate is calculated based on a predetermined reactor water level, and condensate storage tank water or pressure control chamber pool water is injected to the reactor. With such procedures, water level can be ensured and power can be suppressed. Further, condensate storage tank water of low enthalpy is introduced to the pressure suppression chamber pool to directly control elevation of water temperature and ensure integrity of the pressure vessel and the reactor container.

    2003-01-01

    Control over the quantum dynamics of chaotic kicked rotor systems is demonstrated. Specifically, control over a number of quantum coherent phenomena is achieved by a simple modification of the kicking field. These include the enhancement of the dynamical localization length, the introduction of classical anomalous diffusion assisted control for systems far from the semiclassical regime, and the observation of a variety of strongly nonexponential line shapes for dynamical localization. The results provide excellent examples of controlled quantum dynamics in a system that is classically chaotic and offer opportunities to explore quantum fluctuations and correlations in quantum chaos

    LHCb has designed and implemented an integrated Experiment Control System. The Control System uses the same concepts and the same tools to control and monitor all parts of the experiment: the Data Acquisition System, the Timing and the Trigger Systems, the High Level Trigger Farm, the Detector Control System, the Experiment's Infrastructure and the interaction with the CERN Technical Services and the Accelerator. LHCb's Run Control, the main interface used by the experiment's operator, provides access in a hierarchical, coherent and homogeneous manner to all areas of the experiment and to all its sub-detectors. It allows for automated (or manual) configuration and control, including error recovery, of the full experiment in its different running modes. Different instances of the same Run Control interface are used by the various sub-detectors for their stand-alone activities: test runs, calibration runs, etc. The architecture and the tools used to build the control system, the guidelines and components provided to the developers, as well as the first experience with the usage of the Run Control will be presented

  6. Pattern Recognition Control Design

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gambone, Elisabeth A.

    2018-01-01

    Spacecraft control algorithms must know the expected vehicle response to any command to the available control effectors, such as reaction thrusters or torque devices. Spacecraft control system design approaches have traditionally relied on the estimated vehicle mass properties to determine the desired force and moment, as well as knowledge of the effector performance to efficiently control the spacecraft. A pattern recognition approach was used to investigate the relationship between the control effector commands and spacecraft responses. Instead of supplying the approximated vehicle properties and the thruster performance characteristics, a database of information relating the thruster ring commands and the desired vehicle response was used for closed-loop control. A Monte Carlo simulation data set of the spacecraft dynamic response to effector commands was analyzed to establish the influence a command has on the behavior of the spacecraft. A tool developed at NASA Johnson Space Center to analyze flight dynamics Monte Carlo data sets through pattern recognition methods was used to perform this analysis. Once a comprehensive data set relating spacecraft responses with commands was established, it was used in place of traditional control methods and gains set. This pattern recognition approach was compared with traditional control algorithms to determine the potential benefits and uses.

  9. Control rod drives

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Hayakawa, Hiroyasu; Kawamura, Atsuo.

    1979-01-01

    Purpose: To reduce pellet-clad mechanical interactions, as well as improve the fuel safety. Constitution: In the rod drive of a bwr type reactor, an electric motor operated upon intermittent input such as of pulse signals is connected to a control rod. A resolver for converting the rotational angle of the motor to electric signals is connected to the rotational shaft of the motor and the phase difference between the output signal from the resolver and a reference signal is adapted to detect by a comparator. Based on the detection result, the controller is actuated to control a motor for control rod drive so that fine control for the movement of the control rod is made possible. This can reduce the moving distance of the control rod, decrease the thermal stress applied to the control rod and decrease the pellet clad mechanical interaction failures due to thermal expansion between the cladding tube and the pellets caused by abrupt changes in the generated power.

    1998-01-01

    Full Text Available In 1975 the Special Programme for Schistosomiasis Control was introduced in Brazil with the objective of controlling this parasitic disease in six northeastern states. The methodology applied varied largely from state to state, but was based mainly on chemotherapy, This Programme was modified about ten years after it beginning with the main goals including control of morbidity and the blockage of establishment of new foci in non-endemic areas. In two states, Bahia and Minas Gerais, the schistosomiasis control programme started in 1979 and 1983, respectively. The recently made evaluation of those two programmes is the main focus of this paper. It must also be pointed out, that the great majority of the studies performed by different researchers in Brazil, at different endemic areas, consistently found significant decrease on prevalence and incidence, when control measures are repeatedly used for several years. Significant decrease of hepatosplenic forms in the studied areas is well documented in Brazil. After more than 20 years of schistosomiasis control programmes in our country, chemotherapy has shown to be a very important tool for the control of morbidity and to decrease prevalence and incidence in endemic areas. Nevertheless, in medium and long terms, sanitation, water supply, sewage draining and health education seem to be the real tools when the aim is persistent and definitive schistosomiasis control.

    1995-01-01

    CEBAF has recently upgraded its accelerator control system to use EPICS, a control system toolkit being developed by a collaboration among laboratories in the US and Europe. The migration to EPICS has taken place during a year of intense commissioning activity, with new and old control systems operating concurrently. Existing CAMAC hardware was preserved by adding a CAMAC serial highway link to VME; newer hardware developments are now primarily in VME. Software is distributed among three tiers of computers: first, workstations and X terminals for operator interfaces and high level applications; second, VME single board computers for distributed access to hardware and for local control processing; third, embedded processors where needed for faster closed loop operation. This system has demonstrated the ability to scale EPICS to controlling thousands of devices, including hundreds of embedded processors, with control distributed among dozens of VME processors executing more than 125,000 EPICS database records. To deal with the large size of the control system, CEBAF has integrated an object oriented database, providing data management capabilities for both low level I/O and high level machine modeling. A new callable interface which is control system independent permits access to live EPICS data, data in other Unix processes, and data contained in the object oriented database

    Luiz C. de S. Dias

    1995-04-01

    Full Text Available Despite the success of control programmes, schistosomiasis is still a serious public health problem in the world. More than 70 countries where 200 million individuals are evaluated to be infected of a total 600 million at risk. Though there have been important local success in the control of transmission, globally the infection has increased. Economic constrains in developing countries, environmental changes associated with migration and water resources development have been blocking the progress. The main objective of schistosomiasis control is to achieve reduction of disease due to schistosomiasis. We discussed the control measures like: health education, diagnosis and chemotherapy, safe water supplies, sanitation and snail control. We emphasized the need to give priority to school-age children and the importance of integrating the measures of control into locally available systems of health care. The control of schistosomiasis is directly related to the capacity of the preventive health services of an endemic country. The strategy of control requires long-term commitment from the international to the local level.

    Purpose: To increase the driving speed of control rods at rapid insertion with an elongate control rod and an extension pipe while ensuring sufficient buffering performance in a short buffering distance, by providing a plurality of buffers to an extension pipe between a control rod drive source and a control rod in LMFBR type reactor. Constitution: First, second and third buffers are respectively provided to an acceleration piston, an extension pipe and a control rod respectively and the insertion positions for each of the buffers are displaced orderly from above to below. Upon disconnection of energizing current for an electromagnet, the acceleration piston, the extension pipe and the control rod are rapidly inserted in one body. The first, second and third buffers are respectively actuated at each of their falling strokes upon rapid insertion respectively, and the acceleration piston, the extension pipe and the control rod receive the deceleration effect in the order correspondingly. Although the compression force is applied to the control rod only near the stroke end, it does not cause deformation. (Kawakami, Y.)

    Imura, Fumito; Kuroiwa, Hiroyuki; Nakada, Akira; Kosaka, Kouji; Kubota, Hiroshi

    2007-11-01

    The technology of the sub-femtoliter volume control of liquids in nanometer range pipettes (nanopipettes) has been developed for carrying out surgical operations on living cells. We focus attention on an interface forming between oil and water in a nanopipette. The interface position can be moved by increasing or decreasing the input pressure. If the volume of liquid in the nanopipette can be controlled by moving the position of the interface, cell organelles can be discharged or suctioned and a drug-solution can be injected into the cell. Quantity volume control in the pico-attoliter range using a tapered nanopipette is controlled by the condition of an interface with a convex shape toward the top of the nanopipette. The volume can be controlled by the input pressure corresponding to the interfacial radius without the use of a microscope by preliminarily preparing the pipette shape and the interface radius as a function of the input pressure.

    2015-01-01

    The present invention is an intelligent flow control valve which may be inserted into the flow coming out of a pipe and activated to provide a method to stop, measure, and meter flow coming from the open or possibly broken pipe. The intelligent flow control valve may be used to stop the flow while repairs are made. Once repairs have been made, the valve may be removed or used as a control valve to meter the amount of flow from inside the pipe. With the addition of instrumentation, the valve may also be used as a variable area flow meter and flow controller programmed based upon flowing conditions. With robotic additions, the valve may be configured to crawl into a desired pipe location, anchor itself, and activate flow control or metering remotely.

    Since the last ICALEPCS, a small multi-region team has developed a reference design model for a control system for the International Linear Collider as part of the ILC Global Design Effort. The scale and performance parameters of the ILC accelerator require new thinking in regards to control system design. Technical challenges include the large number of accelerator systems to be controlled, the large scale of the accelerator facility, the high degree of automation needed during accelerator operations, and control system equipment requiring 'Five Nines' availability. The R and D path for high availability touches the control system hardware, software, and overall architecture, and extends beyond traditional interfaces into the technical systems. Software considerations for HA include fault detection through exhaustive out-of-band monitoring and automatic state migration to redundant systems, while the telecom industry's emerging ATCA standard - conceived, specified, and designed for High Availability - is being evaluated for suitability for ILC front-end electronics.

    2014-01-01

    Discrete Control Systems establishes a basis for the analysis and design of discretized/quantized control systemsfor continuous physical systems. Beginning with the necessary mathematical foundations and system-model descriptions, the text moves on to derive a robust stability condition. To keep a practical perspective on the uncertain physical systems considered, most of the methods treated are carried out in the frequency domain. As part of the design procedure, modified Nyquist–Hall and Nichols diagrams are presented and discretized proportional–integral–derivative control schemes are reconsidered. Schemes for model-reference feedback and discrete-type observers are proposed. Although single-loop feedback systems form the core of the text, some consideration is given to multiple loops and nonlinearities. The robust control performance and stability of interval systems (with multiple uncertainties) are outlined. Finally, the monograph describes the relationship between feedback-control and discrete ev...

    The enormous growth of the Internet during the last decade offers new means to share and distribute both information and data. In Industry, this results in a rapprochement of the production facilities, i.e. their Process Control and Automation Systems, and the data warehouses. At CERN, the Internet opens the possibility to monitor and even control (parts of) the LHC and its four experiments remotely from anywhere in the world. However, the adoption of standard IT technologies to Distributed Process Control and Automation Systems exposes inherent vulnerabilities to the world. The Teststand On Control System Security at CERN (TOCSSiC) is dedicated to explore the vulnerabilities of arbitrary Commercial-Of-The-Shelf hardware devices connected to standard Ethernet. As such, TOCSSiC should discover their vulnerabilities, point out areas of lack of security, and address areas of improvement which can then be confidentially communicated to manufacturers. This paper points out risks of accessing the Control and Automa...

    2011-01-01

    The present invention provides computer implemented methodology that permits the safe landing and recovery of rotorcraft following engine failure. With this invention successful autorotations may be performed from well within the unsafe operating area of the height-velocity profile of a helicopter by employing the fast and robust real-time trajectory optimization algorithm that commands control motion through an intuitive pilot display, or directly in the case of autonomous rotorcraft. The algorithm generates optimal trajectories and control commands via the direct-collocation optimization method, solved using a nonlinear programming problem solver. The control inputs computed are collective pitch and aircraft pitch, which are easily tracked and manipulated by the pilot or converted to control actuator commands for automated operation during autorotation in the case of an autonomous rotorcraft. The formulation of the optimal control problem has been carefully tailored so the solutions resemble those of an expert pilot, accounting for the performance limitations of the rotorcraft and safety concerns.

    Full Text Available A growing trend of neuroimaging, behavioural and computational research has investigated the topic of outcome uncertainty in decision-making. Although evidence to date indicates that humans are very effective in learning to adapt to uncertain situations, the nature of the specific cognitive processes involved in the adaptation to uncertainty are still a matter of debate. In this article, we reviewed evidence suggesting that cognitive control processes are at the heart of uncertainty in decision-making contexts. Available evidence suggests that: (1 There is a strong conceptual overlap between the constructs of uncertainty and cognitive control; (2 There is a remarkable overlap between the neural networks associated with uncertainty and the brain networks subserving cognitive control; (3 The perception and estimation of uncertainty might play a key role in monitoring processes and the evaluation of the need for control; (4 Potential interactions between uncertainty and cognitive control might play a significant role in several affective disorders.

    The operation of the VIVITRON electrostatic accelerator designed since 1981 and under construction at the CRN since 1985 needs a dedicated process control set up. The study and design of this control system started in 1987. The electrostatic accelerators are rarely operated by a modern control system. So little knowledge is available in this field. The timing problems are generally weak but the Vivitron specific structure, with seven porticos in the tank and sophisticated beam handling in the terminal, imposes control equipment inside the tank under extreme severe conditions. Several steps are necessary to achieve the full size control system. Some tests in the MP used as a pilot machine supplied practical information about surrounding accelerator conditions inside the tank. They also provided better knowledge of the beam behavior, especially inside the accelerator tube

  15. Low noise control valve

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Christie, R.S.

    1975-01-01

    Noise is one of the problems associated with the use of any type of control valve in systems involving the flow of fluids. The advent of OSHA standards has prompted control valve manufacturers to design valves with special trim to lower the sound pressure level to meet these standards. However, these levels are in some cases too high, particularly when a valve must be located in or near an area where people are working at tasks requiring a high degree of concentration. Such locations are found around and near research devices and in laboratory-office areas. This paper describes a type of fluid control device presently being used at PPL as a bypass control valve in deionized water systems and designed to reduce sound pressure levels considerably below OSHA standards. Details of the design and construction of this constant pressure drop variable flow control valve are contained in the text and are shown in photographs and drawings. Test data taken are included

    Full Text Available CONCEPTUAL DELIMITATIONS OF CONTROLLING Nedelcu Serban Universitatea ,,Babes-Bolyai`` Facultatea de Stiinte Economice si Gestiunea Afacerilor 'Controlling' represents a new concept in the Romanian economic environement, being implemented successfully in very few companies. Unlike the German space where controlling is very well represented both at a practical level and in the academia, in Romania controlling can only be found at a practical level, and the specialized literature is restraint, almost absent. Since the practicians of controlling in Romania only know the toolkit they use and not the theoretical elements as well, what is needed in this case is a conceptual delimitation so that controlling would be better implemented, and improved with various elements of the economic environment. In practice, inside various linguistic areas different problems of communication may occur very often in regards to the use of different concepts that may be missunderstood. Therefore in the Romanian research area it becomes imperative to try and clarify the existing issues and to intensify the reasearch in this field. Studying the evolution of the concept we observe that the need for its implementation is primarily experienced at the practical level of the companies, to be then followed by a debate in the specialized literature. The internationalization and the fierce competition that the Romanian companies are confronting on the ecenomic market represent the decissive factor in adopting the concept of controlling.This article is part of the research conducted for my doctoral thesis, 'Controlling in hetergenous economic envirnoments', under the coordination and supervision of Prof.Dr.Dumitru Matis.

    Items to be evaluated in the group control of elevators, and a typical control system are described. A new system in which the fuzzy rule base is employed is introduced together with the configuration. The items to be evaluated are waiting time, riding time, accuracy of forecasting, energy saving, and ease of usage. The everage waiting time of less than 20 seconds with less than 3% waiting rate of more than 60 seconds is accepted as a satisfactory service condition. There are many conflicting matters in group-controlling, and the study for the controlling must deal with the optimization of multi-purpose problems. The standards for group-control evaluation differ according to building structures and the tastes of users, and an important problem is where to give emphasis of the evaluation. The TRAFFIC PATTERN LEARNING METHOD has been applied in the system for careful control to accommodate the traffic. No specific function is provided for the evaluation, but the call allocation is made by fuzzy rule-base. The configuration of a new group-control system is introduced. 7 references, 7 figures, 1 table.

    Highlights: • This is a new technique for controlled fusion. • There will be an attraction force between the two oscillating nuclei. • The attraction force is greater than the Coulomb repulsion between the two nuclei. • The kinetic energy and the density of the two nuclei can be controlled. • The electric vector and the frequency of the light can be controlled. - Abstract: This is a new technique for controlled fusion. When two nuclei are colliding with each other, light, whose the frequency is higher than the minimal threshold frequency of lithium, will be aimed directly at the two nuclei, the two nuclei will perform the simple harmonic oscillation, the charged particle’s simple harmonic oscillation can be considered as an oscillating electric dipole, and the two oscillating nuclei will radiate the electromagnetic wave. Either of the two oscillating electric dipoles will attract each other, or they will repulse each other. There will be an attraction force between the two oscillating nuclei. When the attraction force is greater than the Coulomb repulsion between the two nuclei, the two nuclei will fuse together. Where the kinetic energy and the density of the two nuclei can be controlled, the electric vector and the frequency of the light can be controlled also and, therefore, the fusion can be controlled

    This report summarizes the results of the Load Control System Reliability project (DOE Award DE-FC26-06NT42750). The original grant was awarded to Montana Tech April 2006. Follow-on DOE awards and expansions to the project scope occurred August 2007, January 2009, April 2011, and April 2013. In addition to the DOE monies, the project also consisted of matching funds from the states of Montana and Wyoming. Project participants included Montana Tech; the University of Wyoming; Montana State University; NorthWestern Energy, Inc., and MSE. Research focused on two areas: real-time power-system load control methodologies; and, power-system measurement-based stability-assessment operation and control tools. The majority of effort was focused on area 2. Results from the research includes: development of fundamental power-system dynamic concepts, control schemes, and signal-processing algorithms; many papers (including two prize papers) in leading journals and conferences and leadership of IEEE activities; one patent; participation in major actual-system testing in the western North American power system; prototype power-system operation and control software installed and tested at three major North American control centers; and, the incubation of a new commercial-grade operation and control software tool. Work under this grant certainly supported the DOE-OE goals in the area of “Real Time Grid Reliability Management.”

    One of the amazing successes of biological systems is their ability to "learn by doing" and so adapt to their environment. In this paper, first, a deterministic learning mechanism is presented, by which an appropriately designed adaptive neural controller is capable of learning closed-loop system dynamics during tracking control to a periodic reference orbit. Among various neural network (NN) architectures, the localized radial basis function (RBF) network is employed. A property of persistence of excitation (PE) for RBF networks is established, and a partial PE condition of closed-loop signals, i.e., the PE condition of a regression subvector constructed out of the RBFs along a periodic state trajectory, is proven to be satisfied. Accurate NN approximation for closed-loop system dynamics is achieved in a local region along the periodic state trajectory, and a learning ability is implemented during a closed-loop feedback control process. Second, based on the deterministic learning mechanism, a neural learning control scheme is proposed which can effectively recall and reuse the learned knowledge to achieve closed-loop stability and improved control performance. The significance of this paper is that the presented deterministic learning mechanism and the neural learning control scheme provide elementary components toward the development of a biologically-plausible learning and control methodology. Simulation studies are included to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.

    Heretofore, since the aimed value of a reactor power has been determined only based on the deviation between a temperature variation coefficient and the aimed value, it involves a problem that a region for finely determining a control constant is complicated. In view of the above, in the present invention, an approximate value of the aimed reactor power value is determined based on the aimed value for the temperature variation coefficient, then a compensation value for the aimed power value is determined based on the deviation between the temperature variation coefficient and the aimed value and, further, the aimed power value is determined based on the approximate value and the compensation value. Control elements are automatically operated so that the power follows the aimed value after determining the aimed value. Then, since the aimed reactor power value is controlled finely so that the responsiveness of the temperature variation coefficient is satisfactory and the temperature variation coefficient agrees with the aimed value, the stability for the control of temperature variation coefficient is satisfactory. That is, high performance control is enabled by a simple control algorithm to reduce the number of the steps for the design and the device control. (N.H.)

    Full Text Available Many degree courses at technical universities include the subject of control systems engineering. As an addition to conventional approaches Fuzzy Control can be used to easily find control solutions for systems, even if they include nonlinearities. To support further educational training, models which represent a technical system to be controlled are required. These models have to represent the system in a transparent and easy cognizable manner. Furthermore, a programming tool is required that supports an easy Fuzzy Control development process, including the option to verify the results and tune the system behavior. In order to support the development process a graphical user interface is needed to display the fuzzy terms under real time conditions, especially with a debug system and trace functionality. The experiences with such a programming tool, the Fuzzy Control Design Tool (FHFCE Tool, and four fuzzy teaching models will be presented in this paper. The methodical and didactical objective in the utilization of these teaching models is to develop solution strategies using Computational Intelligence (CI applications for Fuzzy Controllers in order to analyze different algorithms of inference or defuzzyfication and to verify and tune those systems efficiently.

    Based on Khodas et al (2004 Phys. Rev. Lett. 92 086602), we propose a device acting like a controllable prism for an incident spin. The device is a large quantum well where Rashba and Dresselhaus spin-orbit interactions are present and controlled by the plunger gate potential, the electric field and the barrier height. A totally destructive interference can be manipulated externally between the Rashba and Dresselhaus couplings. The spin-dependent transmission/reflection amplitudes are calculated as the control parameters are changed. The device operates as a spin prism/converter/filter in different regimes and may stimulate research in promising directions in spintronics in analogy with linear optics.

    The GSI accelerator facility consists of an old linac and two modern machines, a synchrotron and a storage ring. It is operated from one control room. Only three operators at a time have to keep it running with only little assistance from machine specialists in daytime. So the control tools must provide a high degree of abstraction and modeling to relieve the operators from details on the device level. The program structures to achieve this are described in this paper. A coarse overview of the control architecture is given. (author)

    With haul truck tyres and fuel taking a greater toll on operating costs, controlling haul truck payloads is more important than ever. The paper explains the technologies behind two new optional systems that let operators take control. P & H has introduced two new shovel-based payload measurement options that break new ground for accuracy in the Payload{trademark} and Payload{trademark} Plus Monitoring Systems. Both require P & M's Centurion supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. The Payload system can be retrofitted on existing shovels. 4 figs.

    2008-01-01

    This lecture begins with a definition of an accelerator control system, and then reviews the control system architectures that have been deployed at the larger accelerator facilities. This discussion naturally leads to identification of the major subsystems and their interfaces. We shall explore general strategies for integrating intelligent devices and signal processing subsystems based on gate arrays and programmable DSPs. The following topics will also be covered: physical packaging; timing and synchronization; local and global communication technologies; interfacing to machine protection systems; remote debugging; configuration management and source code control; and integration of commercial software tools. Several practical realizations will be presented.

    There is a general lack of data available with regards to criticality control in the use of incineration for full scale processing of TRU waste. In addition to the new analytical tools, such as PRA, are only now starting to be applied to criticality control. These factors have made the development of the PREPP Criticality Control Plan somewhat unique. It is hoped that the PREPP experiences gained in these efforts will provide new insight which will be useful to future facilities processing waste material containing fissile material. 1 fig
