    This thesis describes the development of large-area magnetic calorimeters which could for example be used for the investigation of the dissociative recombination or the measurement of the Lamb-shift for hydrogenlike heavy ions. The detectors consist of two meandershaped niobium thin film pickup coils and a paramagnetic sensor. The deposition of energy in the sensor results in a temperature change and therefore in a change of magnetisation of the sensor, which can be measured by a SQUID-magnetometer with high precision. As sensormaterials a dilute alloy of gold-erbium (Au:Er) as well as silver-erbium (Ag:Er) were used. Whereas the Ag:Er-sensor was glued on the pickup coil the Au:Er-sensor was for the first time microstructured by a novel microstructuring process established in this thesis. For the characterisation of the detectors and the sensormaterials a fluorescence source and a {sup 55}Fe source were used. The thermodynamic properties of the Au:Er-sensors thereby show promising results, as the magnetisation shows bulk properties down to 20 mK. The measurements of the signalize and the magnetisation with the detector which was equipped with a Ag:Er-sensor showed that the thermodynamic properties of the Ag:Eralloy could be fully described. Furthermore the shape of the pulses, the noise and the energy resolution of both detectors will be discussed. (orig.)

    Environmental hazards are obstacles to the development of communities and regions if they occur on broad areas with different sorts of damage at the same time, like ground damage caused by mining, ground contamination and damage to forests. In industrialized countries, people become increasingly aware of such grievances, mainly concentrating attention on certain types of areas like old industrial areas, mining and conversion areas. Often general problems of areas with weak structure (weak economical value creation, poor access possibilities) are added to the environmental hazards and this is the case in the former uranium mining area around Johanngeorgenstadt in the Saxonian Erzgebirge. The autonomous strengthening of negative processes causes the people to migrate and the settlement areas start to shrink. Facing such problems, approaches offering purely technical solutions for individual cases as practised in the past by the regional structural policies quickly reach their limits. Instead, more complex solutions are needed, connecting individual projects with the development of new perspectives for the communities involved. As a result of the positive experiences in uranium mining, the area of rehabilitation and development, the states with significant environmental hazards are given the recommendation to integrate areas needing rehabilitation and development into their plans for the state and regional development. This is based on the consideration that at first problematic areas must be determined in the development plans and then the actions plans containing the formulation and implementation of the goals of rehabilitation and development must be set up. [German] Umweltschaeden bilden fuer Gemeinden und Regionen ein Entwicklungshindernis, wenn sie grossflaechig auftreten und wenn sich unterschiedliche Schadensbilder, z.B. bergbaubedingte Tagesbrueche, Bodenkontaminationen und Waldschaeden ueberlagern.

    Eco-efficiency is achieved when goods and services satisfy human needs, increase the quality of life, at prices which are competitive and when environmental impacts and resource intensity are decreased to a degree that they are in accordance with the expected capacities of the Earth. Eco-efficiency is a management approach that allows enterprises to carry out environmental protection measures from a market-oriented point of view. Eco-efficiency shows that ecology and economy do not contradict each other. On the contrary, in combination, they present a gain for enterprises. The motto is: To produce more with less. The WBCSD and its member enterprises have agreed to make economic growth and sustainable development the guideline for their economic entrepreneurial actions. The WBCSD supports the close co-operation of the economy, government and other organizations, as it is only together that we can help sustainable development to achieve a breakthrough. (orig.) [German] Oekoeffizienz ist dann erreicht, wenn Gueter und Dienstleistungen die menschlichen Beduerfnisse befriedigen, die Lebensqualitaet erhoehen und wettbewerbsfaehige Preise aufweisen, und die oekologischen Auswirkungen und die Ressourcenintensitaet waehrend des Lebenszyklus soweit verringert werden, dass eine Uebereinstimmung mit der voraussichtlichen Belastbarkeit der Erde besteht. Oekoeffizienz steht fuer einen Managementansatz, der Unternehmen erlaubt, Umweltschutzmassnahmen unter Marktgesichtspunkten durchzufuehren. Mit Oekoeffizienz wird zum Ausdruck gebracht, dass Oekonomie und Oekologie sich nicht ausschliessen, sondern in Kombination einen Gewinn fuer Unternehmen darstellen. Das Motto lautet: Mehr mit weniger produzieren.

    - and p-type emitters have been fabricated. After a very short development time conversion efficiencies have been obtained ({eta}{sub max} = 15.2%) which are reported for PECVD emitters. (orig.) [German] Zwei neue Anlagen zur vollstaendigen bzw. grossflaechigen Abscheidung von a-Si:H basierenden Solarzellen mit der sog. 'Hot-Wire (HW)' CVD wurden aufgebaut. Die Abscheidebedingungen fuer geeignete n- und p-dotierte a-Si:H- bzw. {mu}c-Si:H-Schichten wurden ermittelt. Weltweit wurde erstmals eine a-Si:H-pin-Zelle vollstaendig mit der HWCVD-Methode hergestellt, ein Anfangswirkungsgrad von {eta}{sub initial} = 8,9% wurde erreicht. Nach Entwicklung eines p/n-Tunnel- bzw. Rekombinationsueberganges ist es weltweit ebenfalls erstmals gelungen, pin-pin-Tandemstrukturen mit a-Si:H-Absorbern vollstaendig mit der HWCVD-Methode abzuscheiden. Nach Teilalterung wurden noch Wirkungsgrade von {eta}{approx}7% ermittelt. Generell ist die Stabilitaet der all-HWCVD-Zellen noch unbedriedigend, was auf strukturell instabile p-Schichten zurueckgefuehrt werden konnte. Erste nip-Solarzellen auf Edelstahlsubstraten wurden ebenfalls vollstaendig mit der HWCVD praepariert ({eta}{sub initial}>6%). Der Einbau von {mu}c-Si:H-Absorberschichten die mit HWCVD bzw. ECWR-PECVD hergestellt wurden, in pin-Solarzellen war bisher wenig erfolgreich. In einer Anlage zur grossflaechigen HWCVD-Abscheidung wurden a-Si:H-Schichten mit guter Qualitaet und einer Schichtdickenuniformitaet von {delta}d = {+-}2,5% hergestellt. Fuer sog. 'Huepfzellen', nur die i-Schicht wurde in der Anlage abgeschieden, wurden auch sehr uniforme Anfangswirkungsgrade {eta}{sub initial}=6,1{+-}0,2% fuer kleinflaechige Zellen auf einer Flaeche von 20 x 20 cm{sup 2} erreicht. Diese Ergebnisse koennen als 'proof of concept' fuer die grossflaechige HWCVD-Abscheidung fuer a-Si:H-basierende Solarzellen betrachtet werden. Erstmals wurde die HWCVD zur Abscheidung von Emitter-Schichten fuer Hetero-Solarzellen auf c

    Full Text Available Computerspiele sind heute aus der digitalen Medienwelt nicht mehr wegzudenken. Ihre rasante technische Entwicklung sowie ihre hohe Akzeptanz in der Jugendkultur werfen Fragen nach pädagogischer Verwertbarkeit dieses Mediums auf. Auf diesem Gebiet besteht Forschungsbedarf: Für den Einsatz aktueller Spielkonzepte als Lehrmittel existieren keine fundierten Theorien oder Konzepte. Der schöpferische Umgang mit Spielen durch Anwender («Emergent Gameplay» bietet hier durch sein hohes Motivationspotential einen vielversprechenden Ansatz. Die oft wenig beachtete Rolle der digitalen Spielen zugrunde liegenden Softwaretechnik sollte stärkere Berücksichtigung finden: Es existiert einerseits ein für die Akzeptanz beim Anwender notwendiges Minimum, andererseits ist der Einsatz des aktuellen technischen «state of the art» für die Umsetzung pädagogischer und didaktischer Ambitionen durch seine enormen Anforderungen wenig zielführend. Im Ergebnis sind Idee und Spielspass das Mass auch für Anwendungen des Game Based Learn­ing.

    Full Text Available Nathalie Friedrichs proposes the following lesson plan for the senior classes of the German Gymnasium (grammar-school: „Die Entwicklung eines nationalen Identitätsbewusstseins in den von Napoleon besetzten Ländern“ (The Development of a National Sense of Identity in the Countries Occupied by Napeoleon.The central question, however, is whether this new German national consciousness at the dawn of the 19th century can be traced back to Napoleon’s reign in the Rhineland region or whether it emerged during the wars of liberation as a result of a firm rejection of Napoleon.The following materials will be given to the pupils beforhand: A short preparatory text with essential background information, a pithy quote , and two historical sources, namely the appeal of Ludwig Adolf Peter Graf von Sayn-Wittgenstein to support the war of liberation, and another more francophile source by the physician Adolf Kußmaul. The latter source points in the direction of a positive experience during the time of French occupation and therefore relativises the claim of a German patriotism as a direct result of the war against France. From a didactical viewpoint, the lesson aims to develop the prerequisites for a critical analysis of historical source texts and different points of view on the topic. Finally, a table listing the respective pros and cons of the Napoleonic arguments is sketched out, visualising the perspectives of the students and leading to the final discussion, which should produce answers to the questions of the role of Napoleon for the Germans.

    Mycotic aneurysms of the aorta and the visceral arteries are life-threatening diseases, due to potential rupture and organ or limb ischemia. They occur in endocarditis, immunodeficiency, bacteremia and fungemia, and have a poor prognosis.We report on a case of a 54-year-old male patient suffering from abdominal angina after mitral valve replacement for septic mycotic endocarditis. In presence of a mycotic-embolic occlusion of the left popliteal artery and multiple septic organ infarctions a mycotic aneurysm of the superior mesenteric artery was found in abdominal spiral-CT.Based on sequential spiral-CT examinations, this case demonstrates the development of a septic aneurysm of the superior mesenteric artery.

    Strings of laser cooled ions stored in microstructured Paul traps (microtraps) have promising potential for quantum information science. They provide a system which can be screened from a decohering environment, accurately prepared, manipulated and state selectively detected with efficiency close to unity. Magnetic field gradients allow for addressing trapped ions in frequency space. Furthermore, coupling of the ions' motional and spin states and long range spin-spin coupling of the ions' internal states are induced by such a gradient. This method is called Magnetic Gradient Induced Coupling, MAGIC. In this thesis, the design, construction and first characterization of a novel microtrap with an integrated solenoid is reported. The solenoid is designed to create a high magnetic field gradient per dissipated heat. The microtrap consists of three layers stacked onto each other. The outer layers provide a trapping potential, while the inner layer creates the switchable magnetic field gradient. Another specialty of this trap is the 33 pairs of DC-electrodes, allowing to move the ions along the trap axis and to adjust the range and the strength of the ions' spin-spin interactions. The microtrap is fixed on top of a ceramic block that provides the necessary electrical connections via thick film printed wires, a technique adopted in the context of microtraps for the first time, and in addition acts as a vacuum interface. The volume of the vacuum chamber is quite small, allowing for pressures in the low 10{sup -11} mbar range. In this microtrap, {sup 172}Yb{sup +}-ions are trapped, cooled and shuttled over a distance of about 2 mm. Trapped ions are used as magnetic field gradient probes, with a relative magnetic field precision of {delta}B/B{sub 0}=7.10{sup -6}. The addressing of two ions with the MAGIC method in the solenoid's magnetic field gradient is demonstrated.

    In August 1993 the first German `Delphi Report on Developments in Science and Technology` was published. It was elaborated by the Fraunhofer Institute for System Engineering and Innovation Research (FhG-ISI) in cooperation with the Japanese National Institute of Science and Technology Policy (NISTEP). The `MINI-DELPHI` now completed by FhG-ISI, again in cooperation with NISTEP, is a further development of the Delphi approach in that it is more differentiated in its questions and assessment criteria than its predecessors. `MINI-DELPHI` is not intended as a comprehensive forecast on technology in general but rather focusses on key topics. Its emphasis is on technology demand and the relevance of technologies to social issues. Although the Mini-Delphi study was primarily aimed at further refining the methodology employed, it nevertheless contains a wealth of information and details on circumscript questions. The requisite database is provided by tables on the results of two inquiry rounds among Japanese and German experts.

    A short-term test method for in-situ measurement of the collector field, pipelines and heat exchanger of large-surface solar systems was developed at ZAE Bayern, together with the necessary technical systems (mobile acquisition of meteorological data via telemetering, non-invasive surface temperature sensors and ultrasonic volume flow measuring instruments). Dynamic measurements were made for 11 days in a large-surface solar system of the ``Solarthermie 2000`` programme using the new measuring system. In order to optimize the evaluation procedure, the plant was simulated, and the influence of different models and operating conditions during the measurements on the prediction quality was investigated in detail. On this basis, it was possible to predict the long-term collector yield of the ZfS Hilden, which was measured for a period of 7 months, with an error of less than 5%. The method will be validated in two further industrial-scale systems. [Deutsch] Am ZAE Bayern wurde ein Kurzzeittestverfahren zur insitu-Vermessung des Kollektorkreises (Kollektorfeld, Rohrleitungen, Waermetauscher) grosser Solaranlagen entwickelt.

    The study presented here describes the development of a laboratory test system for the determination of aerobic biodegradability of substances at low concentrations in surface water. It was aimed to prepare a draft guideline for a biodegradation simulation test according to OECD format. The experimental approach was based on a literature study conducted within the frame of this project. Further useful information on the possible test design was derived from the German BBA guideline 5-1. Natural water and sediments were collected. Radiolabelled Lindane or 4-Nitrophenol was added. The test vessels (reactors) were aerated and incubated under controlled conditions for up to 92 days. The results showed biological stability of the sediment/water systems even without addition of nutrients and adherence to non-reducing conditions. Mineralisation of 4-Nitrophenol was influenced by the sediment type, the method of aeration and temperature. Factors affecting the mineralisation of Lindane were the method of application and again, the sediment type and temperature. Considerable amounts of the radioactivity were bound to the sediment and were to a large extent unextractable. The potential of a reactor to mineralise a test substance could not be correlated with the biological parameters measured. (orig.)

    The focus was on the development and optimisation of the close-spaced sublimation process in an inline coating plant for production of stable high-efficiency CdS/CdTe solar wafers. An inline plant was to be constructed by ANTEC GmbH and ISFH. Film layers were to be optimised, and investigations were to show whether processing of single films is possible without breaking the vacuum, e.g. for etching. The results were to be used directly by ANTEC GmbH. An efficiency of 14 percent and an idle voltage of about 850 V were to be achieved with a film thickness of 2 {mu}m. To achieve these goals, the following project stages were envisaged: 1. Replacement of the expensive window material ITO by a less costly material. 2. Higher stability of the back contact by using appropriate intermediate layers. 3. Alternative activation processes other than the conventional CdCl{sub 2} activation. 4. Investigation of the effects of the activation step on the electric properties of the sample. [German] Die uebergreifende Aufgabenstellung des Projektes war die Entwicklung und Optimierung des Close-spaced-Sublimation verfahrens in einer Inline-Beschichtungsanlage fuer die Herstellung stabiler und hocheffizienter CdS/CdTe Duennschichtsolarzellen. Mit dem Wissen der ANTEC GmbH sollte zusammen mit dem ISFH eine Inline-Anlage konzipiert und gebaut werden. Die fuer die Solarzelle notwendigen Einzelschichten sollten in dem Inline-Prozess optimiert werden. Es sollte ermittelt werden, ob eine Prozessierung der Einzelschichten ohne Brechen des Vakuums, z.B. fuer einen Aetzschritt, moeglich ist. Die erzielten Ergebnisse sollen direkt der ANTEC GmbH zufliessen. In dem Projekt wurde als Endziel ein Wirkungsgrad der CdTe/CdS-Duennschichtsolarzelle von 14% und eine Erhoehung der Leerlaufspannung auf Werte um 850 mV angestrebt. Gleichzeitig sollte die CdTe-Schichtdicke auf 2 {mu}m vermindert werden. Um dieses Gesamtziel zu erreichen, sollen folgende Teilaufgaben bearbeitet werden: 1) Das teuere

[German] Waermedaemmstoffe finden in unterschiedlichen Bereichen, aus denen ihre speziellen Aufgaben resultieren, Anwendung. Materialien wie Daemmstoffe aus Mineralfasern und Schaumkunststoffe werden im Bauwesen und fuer die Industriedaemmung eingesetzt. Waermedaemmstoffe aus natuerlichen Rohstoffen finden, wenn auch nur begrenzt, im Bauwesen Anwendung. Im Bekleidungsbereich werden neben Vliesstoffen aus synthetischen Polymeren oder Schafwolle besonders im out-door-Bereich gestrickte Fleece verwendet. Die Zielstellung des Projektes besteht in der Entwicklung eines Daemmmaterials mit sehr geringer Waermeleitfaehigkeit bei sehr geringer Dichte sowie hohen Freiheitsgraden hinsichtlich der Struktur- und Stoffparameter. Die Umsetzung erfolgt mit dem Verfahren der elektrostatischen Beflockung. Es wird ein Rechenmodell zur Ermittlung optimaler Strukturen hinsichtlich Waermeleitfaehigkeit und Dichte erstellt. Im Anschluss an eine anforderungsgerechte Materialauswahl werden praktische Untersuchungen zur Wirkungsweise des Materials durchgefuehrt. Es wird eine Technikumsanlage zur kontinuierlichen Herstellung des Materials installiert und erprobt. Das Ergebnis des Projektes besteht in einer sehr variablen gestaltbaren Daemmstoffstruktur mit hervorragenden Eigenschaften. Das entwickelte Material wird als Super-Isolations-Flock-Daemmstoff bezeichnet. Bei definierten Strukturbedingungen und entsprechender Materialauswahl koennen Werte fuer die Waermleitfaehigkeit im Bereich von 0,027 W/mK und 0,030 W/mK erreicht werden.

    This study presents the development of a continuously operating fluidized-bed bioreactor for on-line evaluation of radiotracers in vitro, which combines tissue-like three-dimensional cell cultivation in open porous microcarriers with a technique for on-line radioactivity detection. The long time stability of steady-state permits a large number of experiments using the same culture. All relevant parameters (O{sub 2}, pH, T, etc.) can be adjusted according to the experimental requirements. The flux of the circulating medium can be adapted to the blood flow of the corresponding organism, while the input function of the radiotracer is freely adjustable for simulation of in vivo conditions. Sampling and examination of the immobilized cells care possible at any time. Using this system, the kinetics of 2-[{sup 18}F]fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG) in human glioma cells (86HG39) were studied and it was shown that the dependence of the lumped constant (LC) for FDG on the medium glucose concentration is similar to that obtained in the rat brain. For normoglycemic concentrations the LC was determined to be in the range of 0.7, while in hypoglycemia it increased progressively up to a value of 1.22 at a glucose concentration of 3 mM. The rate constants in the three compartment model were found to be similar to those obtained in vivo using PET; indicating the validity of the system for tracer evaluation. Furthermore the kinetics of both diastereomeric forms of 4-[{sup 18}F]fluoro-proline was investigated and found that both diastereomeres were not metabolized and reached an identical intracellular steady state concentration. The trans-form was transported three times faster than the cis-diastereomere, indicated by the rate constants. (orig.)

    und die Erstellung eines einheitlichen Berechnungsansatzes. Als Grundlage fuer die durchgefuehrten Berechnungen dienten die deutschen Vorschriften der aktuellen Energieeinsparverordnung in Kombination mit der Berechnungsnorm DIN 4108-6 sowie DIN 4701-10. Hierzu wurden die klimatischen Bedingungen Russlands am Beispiel der russischen Metropole Sankt Petersburg in die Berechnungen integriert. Die Datenanalyse des Bestandsgebaeudes eroeffnet eine grosse Bandbreite an Moeglichkeiten zur Erhoehung der Energieeffizienz. So wird unter anderem im Zuge der Berechnungen festgestellt, dass durch relativ kostenguenstige Massnahmen zur Verbesserung des Waermeschutzes eine bedeutende Verringerung des Endenergiebedarfs erreicht werden kann. Es werden weiterhin moegliche Sanierungsvarianten unter Einbeziehung verschiedener Materialien und Heizungsanlagen vorgestellt. Die Ergebnisse machen deutlich, dass die Zukunft russischer Wohnhaeuser wie der hier dargestellten Typenserie 1-507 alles andere als aussichtslos ist, wie oft vermutet wird. Sie koennen im Gegenteil durchaus als komfortabler und funktionaler Wohnraum dienen. Auch die Verwendung regenerativer Energiequellen wie der Solarenergie ist unter den Bedingungen einer noerdlich gelegenen Stadt wie Sankt Petersburg realisierbar. Die durchgefuehrten Berechnungen zeigen, dass eine Sanierung der russischen Wohnbauten der ersten Periode des industriellen Bauens durchaus lohnenswert sein kann, insbesondere wenn man die Entwicklung der Energiepreise betrachtet. In seiner energieeffizientesten Form (''Passivhaus'') bringt eine Sanierung eine Reduzierung des Endenergiebedarfs von bis zu 90 % im Vergleich zum Bestandsgebaeude mit sich.

  2. Untersuchungen zur Entwicklung von Satellitengalaxien

    Science.gov (United States)

    Seidel, Björn

    2002-01-01

    Gleichgewichtsmodelle ein- und zweikomponentiger Satellitengalaxien werden erzeugt und die Gezeiteneinwirkungen der als starres äußeres Potential angenommenen Milchstraße auf sie betrachtet. Eine erste Reihe von Simulationen mit anfänglich kugelsymmetrischen einkomponentigen Satelliten zeigt, daß sich nach elliptischer Deformation ein Balken und Schweife ungleicher Länge ausbilden, deren Aussehen sich periodisch ändert. Mithilfe von Vergleichssimulationen wurden folgende Phänomene am Satelliten entdeckt: (1) Hochdichtebereiche in den Schweifen, (2) Niedrigdichtebereiche um den Kern bzw. Balken und (3) ein oft verdeckter Balken. Analysiert wird das Erscheinungsbild in Zeitabhängigkeit. Die Teilchen gehen dem Kern über den Balken verloren und bewegen sich entlang gewisser stets gleich aussehender charakteristischer Strukturen in die Schweife. Nach einer Herleitung allgemeiner Größen des mehrkomponentigen Kingprofils werden drei stabile Standardmodelle zweikomponentiger Satellitengalaxien mit Massenverhältnis 1:10 (baryonische zu dunkle Materie) und unterschiedlicher Verteilung der dunklen und sichtbaren Materie gefunden. Ohne die Allgemeinheit der Ergebnisse zu beeinträchtigen, wurde dabei die Große Magellanische Wolke als Grundlage der Modelle genommen. Nach geeigneter Wahl der Bahn, zu der der Gezeitenradius des verwendeten dreikomponentigen Milchstraßenpotentials sowohl analytisch als auch numerisch berechnet wird, werden Simulationen der Modelle analysiert. Hauptaugenmerk ist das unterschiedliche Verhalten der Komponenten. Hauptergebnisse: (1) Es ist möglich, große Anteile dunkler, jedoch nur geringe sichtbarer Materie abzulösen. Dunkle und sichtbare Materie können unterschiedliche morphologische Strukturen bilden. (2) Je nach Konzentration der Komponenten ist die Eigengravitation der Teilchen mehr oder weniger für das Aussehen bestimmend. (3) Die Kernauflösung des Satelliten findet im Perigalaktikum (PG), sein Zerfall aber erst im Apogalaktikum statt. (4) Die Geschwindigkeitsdispersionen der Komponenten im Kern sind im PG entlang der Sichtlinie kurzzeitig stark erhöht, sie fallen ebenso wie die Dichten und deren Verhältnis mit jedem PG stufenförmig ab; einiges davon sind nur Projektionseffekte. (5) Der radiale Verlauf der Geschwindigkeitsdispersion ist vom Bahnort abhängig er wurde genau untersucht. (6) Der Satellit zerfällt über einen Kreislauf aus Massenverlust, flacher werdendem Potential und kleiner werdendem Gezeitenradius. Equilibrium models of one- and two-component satellite galaxies are created. The tidal influence of the Milky Way, which is modeled as a rigid external potential, is examined. A first set of simulations adopting originally spherically-symmetric, one-component satellites show that after elliptical deformation, a bar and tails of unequal length arise which change their morphology cyclically. By considering comparative simulations, the following phenomena are discovered: (1) High-density regions in the tails, (2) low-density zones around the core or bar, (3) an often concealed bar. The overall morphology as function of time is analysed. The particles are lost from the core via the bar and move along certain morphologically characteristic structures into the tails. After deducing general quantities of the multi-component King model, three stable standard models of two-component satellite galaxies with different distributions of dark and visible matter are found. These models have a mass ratio of 1:10 for baryonic to dark matter. Without restriction to the universality of the results, the Large Magellanic Cloud was taken as basic prototype for these models. To choose the proper orbits, the tidal radius of the three-component model of the potential of the Galaxy is calculated both analytically and numerically. Then the simulations are analysed with the different behaviour of the components being the main focus of interest. Main results: (1) It is possible to detach a large fraction of dark matter but only a small amount of visible matter. Dark and visible matter may form different morphological structures. (2) Depending on the concentrations of the components, self-gravity may be the decisive factor for determining the morphology. (3) The dissolution of the core of the satellite occurs at perigalacticon (PG), but it does not decay before apogalacticon. (4) At PG the core densities of the components, their ratio and the velocity dispersions fall off in steps, the velocity dispersions along the line of sight show a high narrow peak. Some of these effects are just projection effects. (5) The radial dependence of the velocity dispersion is dependent on the orbital position; it is analysed in detail. (6) The satellite decays through a cycle of mass loss, an increasingly shallow potential and decreasing tidal radius.

    First, a simple and efficient tool for projecting solar thermal power systems was to be developed by ITW Stuttgart (see separate ITW Stuttgart report). Parallel to this, a fast and simple method was to be developed for in-situ assessment or the annual yield of such systems, with a maximum error of 5 percent. The following steps were taken: 1. Development of a measuring system for the task; 2. Selection of methods of evaluation for the dynamic in situ short-term test; 3. Development and testing of the method in several industrial-scale systems and validation by comparison with the results of conventional measurements. The dynamic in situ short-term test method developed on this basis consists of six steps which are described in the report. The measuring accuracy depends on the correct function of the plant. [German] Zunaechst sollte fuer solarthermische Grossanlagen ein Katalog standardisierter Anlagenkonfigurationen erstellt und anschliessend in die gaengigen Planungswerkzeuge TRNSYS und TSOL uebertragen werden, um Planern ein einfaches und leistungsfaehiges Werkzeug zur Auslegung und zur Berechnung des GSR zur Verfuegung zu stellen. Damit sollen Planungsfehler aufgrund fehlender Erfahrung mit Solaranlagen vermieden und ein Standard fuer innovative Anlagenkonzepte verbreitet werden. Dieser Arbeitspunkt wurde ausschliesslich durch das ITW Stuttgart bearbeitet, siehe separater Berichtsteil des ITW Stuttgart. Parallel dazu war ein Testverfahren zu entwickeln, mit dem der Jahresertrag grosser thermischer Solaranlagen in situ, d.h. an der installierten Anlage vor Ort, ohne Eingriff in die Anlage, um die Gewaehrleistungspflicht des Anlagenbauers zu erhalten, auf 5% genau, um ein klares juristisches Kriterium fuer die Feststellung einer etwaigen Nachbesserungspflicht des Erbauers zu haben, kostenguenstig und in kurzer Zeit (maximal 6 Wochen) bestimmt werden kann. Hierzu waren folgende Arbeiten notwendig: 1. Entwicklung einer an die Aufgabenstellung angepassten Messtechnik

    With the translation of Agenda 21 all the documents released in connection with the United Nations Conference of Environment and Development (UNCED) at Rio de Janeiro (June 1992) have now been made generally available also in the German language. Agenda 21, which in 40 chapters discusses the basic political platforms of environment-oriented sustainable development, is an action programme for the 21st century adopted at Rio by more than 170 states. The action programme contains detailed instructions as to the practices to be abandoned to prevent any further deteriorations as well as strategies to be adopted to gradually relieve the situation and to ensure a reasonable and sustainable exploitation of our natural resources. One important approach to this goal is that environmental issues are considered within a global context, thus being a prominent factor in all political spheres. The rules set up in this action programme are applicable to industrial and developing countries alike. It offers - in broad outline - prescriptions for the combatting poverty, control of overpopulation, reconciliation of commercial and environmental interests, disposal of refuse and chemicals, for climate, energy and agricultural policies as well as the ways in which industrial and developing countries could cooperate both financially and in terms of shared technologies. The bilateral and multilateral development policies of the Federal Government are largely based on Agende 21.

    Solar cells were produced of wafers of die-cast and strip-drawn multicrystalline silicon and characterized. Production methods like SOD (spin-on doping), RTP (rapid thermal processing), PECVD (plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition), RIE (reactive ion etching) and screen printing were investigated. The results are summarized as follows: 1. Layer resistance can be adjusted by variation of the RTP temperature cycle and by selecting appropriate doping materials (P507 by Filmtronics); 2. The low resistance required for screen printing metallization are obtained only with a different doping material (P8545SF-Filmtronics); 3. Metallized aluminium and copper require a 30 nm TiN layer as diffusion barrier; 4. Reflectivity will be reduced most effectively by RIE with chlorine gas on monocrystalline and multicrystalline silicon wafers. [German] Im Rahmen des Projektes wurden auf Wafern aus blockgegossenem und bandgezogenem multikristallinen Silizium Solarzellen hergestellt und charakterisiert. Fuer die Herstellung wurden Verfahren wie SOD (spin-on doping), RTP (rapid thermal processing), PECVD (plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition), RIE (reactive ion etching) und Siebdruck untersucht. Die Ergebnisse lassen sich wie folgt zusammenfassen: 1. eine Einstellung des Schichtwiderstandes wird durch Variation des RTP-Temperaturzyklus sowie Auswahl verschiedener Dotierstoffe (P507 von Filmtronics) erreicht; 2. die fuer die Siebdruckmetallisierung erforderlichen geringen Schichtwiderstaende werden nur durch die Wahl eines anderen Dotierstoffes (P8545SF-Filmtronics) erreicht; 3. Aluminium- und Kupfermetallisierungen benoetigen eine 30 nm dicke TiN-Schicht als Diffusionsbarriere; und 4. die wirksamste Verminderung des Reflexionsgrades ist mittels RIE-Verfahren unter Verwendung von Chlorgas auf ein- und multikristalline Siliziumwafer erreichbar.

    Requirements for improvement of pedestrian protection are the result of real-world accidents and test conditions, which take an important role in development of front-end structures of passenger cars at present, based on legal regulations (EU directives expected in 2005) and on car assessment programmes (application as per EuroNCAP since 1997). Styling and packaging are major considerations in conceptual realisation on a large scale. Furthermore, demands for minimisation of weight and cost have to be considered as marginal conditions. Solutions for this conflict of aims, which results from the new safety requirements and performance criteria for front-end structures, are to be represented and discussed based on concrete examples. (orig.) [German] Anforderungen zur Verbesserung des Fussgaengerschutzes resultieren einerseits aus dem Unfallgeschehen und andererseits aus Versuchsbedingungen, die derzeit auf der Basis von gesetzlichen Regelungen (erwartete EU-Richtlinie etwa im Jahr 2005) und von Sicherheitsbewertungen (Anwendung im Rahmen von EuroNCAP seit 1997) in der Vorbau-Entwicklung von Personenkraftwagen eine bedeutende Rolle einnehmen. Die konzeptionelle Umsetzung tangiert sowohl Styling als auch Packaging in erheblichem Umfang, darueber hinaus sind als Randbedingungen die Forderungen nach der Minimierung von Gewicht und Kosten zu beruecksichtigen. Die Loesungen dieses Zielkonfliktes, deren Wirkungsfeld durch die neuen Sicherheitsanforderungen und die Auslegungskriterien fuer Vorbaustrukturen aufgespannt wird, sollen anhand von konkreten Beispielen dargestellt und diskutiert werden.

    When it comes to assessing the hazards emanating from heavy pollutants in waters mere elemental analysis provides too little information. Due to the great differences in toxicity and mobility it is important to know more about the exact species in question. This is particularly true of heavy metals that form stable organyls, specifically As, Pb, Sn and Hg, but also of alkylated arsenic acids, which need to be measured in complex anion mixtures. The purpose of the present project was to develop robust, powerful analysis methods and thus overcome the existing deficit in reliable analysis methods for these substances. An important approach in this connection is the use of coupled chromatography and detection systems for separation and analysis. [German] Hinsichtlich der von einer Schwermetallbelastung in Gewaessern ausgehenden Gefahren liefert die reine Elementanalytik nur unzureichende Aussagen. Aufgrund der grossen Unterschiede in Toxiditaet und Mobilitaet ist die Kenntnis der jeweils vorliegenden Spezies bedeutungsvoll. Dies gilt in besonderem Masse fuer die stabile Organyle bildenden Schwermetalle As, Pb, Sn und Hg sowie die alkylierten Arsensaeuren, die es innerhalb komplexer Anionengemische zu bestimmen gilt. Hinsichtlich ihrer sicheren Bestimmung bestehen methodische Defizite, die das vorliegende Projekt durch die Entwicklung robuster, nachweisstarker Analysenverfahren zu beseitigen versucht. Grosse Bedeutung kommt dabei gekoppelten Systemen aus Chromatographie und Detektion als Trenn- und Bestimmungsmethode zu. (orig.)

    Major objectives of this project are: to prepare a cross-disciplinary analysis of all characteristic aspects of the energy supply and demand patterns of a group of selected energy-intensive companies in the Karlsruhe and Rhine harbour area (5 industrial power consumers, 1 utility), to identify practical approaches for optimization and integration of energy and material flows, (networking), and to develop optimised investment and energy supply options within the framework of given conditions. The basis of the optimal solution and energy network presented and explained in detail is a new combined-cycle power plant running as a gas-fired CHP plant, substituting about 50% of the systems formerly used. (orig./CB) [German] Fragestellungen der Effizienzsteigerung und der Verwertung von Abfaellen und Abwaerme gewinnen an Relevanz vor dem Hintergrund der begrenzten Aufnahmekapazitaet der Umweltmedien fuer Schadstoffe. Im Rahmen des Projektes wurde am Beispiel der Region Karlsruhe (5 Industrieunternehmen und 1 EVU) die Entwicklung betriebsuebergreifender Energieversorgungssysteme (Netzwerke) interdisziplinaer analysiert und beschrieben. Zielsetzungen des Projekts waren unter anderem: Bestimmung von zukunftsfaehigen Optionen, intelligente Vernetzung von Energiestroemen, wirtschaftliche Optimierung betriebsuebergreifender Energiemanagement-Loesungen. Die optimale vorgestellte Loesung ist charakterisiert durch den Neubau einer zentralen, gasgefeuerten GuD-Anlage, die etwa die Haelfte der bisherigen Anlagen ersetzt und zusammen mit den weiterhin genutzten Anlagen die Energieversorgung der Unternehmen sicherstellt.

    A solar refrigerator for air conditioning and cooling was developed. The key component is a two-phase, two-component jet pump with ammonia and water as working fluid. Both the pump flow and the suction flow can be two-phase flows. This way, the advantages of both the absorption and the compression principle will be utilized, and a compact size will be achieved. Upon termination of the calculations, the function of the pump will be investigated in a 0 W pilot plant. For this, various geometries were calculated and tested for their potential efficiencies. A prototype will be constructed on the basis of the results. [German] Das Ziel des Vorhabens besteht in der Entwicklung einer solarbetriebenen Kaelteanlage fuer Klimatisierungs- und Kuehlungszwecke. Die Hauptkomponente der Kaelteanlage ist eine Zweiphasen-/Zweikomponenten-Strahlpumpe, die mit dem Arbeitsgemisch Ammoniak/Wasser betrieben wird. Sowohl der Treib- als auch der Saugstrom koennen zweiphasig sein. Dadurch sollen einerseits die Vorteile des Absorptions- und des Kompressionsprinzips miteinander verknuepft und andererseits ein kompakter Aufbau erreicht werden. Nach Abschluss der thermodynamischen und kinetischen Berechnungen soll die Funktion der Zweiphasen-/Zweikomponenten-Strahlpumpe mit Hilfe einer Pilotanlage mit ca. 20 kW Kaelteleistung untersucht werden. Dazu werden nach Vorausberechnungen verschiedene Geometrien in Bezug auf erzielbare Wirkungsgrade getestet. Die Ergebnisse bilden die Basis fuer den Bau eines Prototyps. (orig.)

    Statistiken aus der Post-Accord Elections (PAE Datensammlung, die in diesem Artikel präsentiert werden, haben gleichwohl ergeben, dass Frieden, Power-Sharing und Demokratie eng miteinander verflochten sind; Friedensabkommen sehen heute in den meisten Fällen sowohl Power-Sharing als auch Wahlen vor. Im Gegensatz zu früheren Forschungen, die von der Annahme ausgingen, das Power-Sharing ein Instrument zur Beendigung von Gewalt darstellt, belegen die Daten, dass der Konflikt häufig nach Unterzeichnung eines Abkommens fortlebt, auch wenn Regelungen zur Machtteilung vorgesehen sind. Dass Power-Sharing Wahlen begünstigt, lässt sich nicht belegen; im Gegenteil, es kommt häufiger vor, dass nach einem Friedensprozess ohne Power-Sharing-Abkommen Wahlen abgehalten werden. Eine Periode der Machtteilung vor Wahlen scheint eine anschließende friedliche Entwicklung nicht zu fördern; Wahlen sind in diesem Fall ähnlich konfliktreich wie Wahlen, die nach Friedensvereinbarungen ohne Machtteilungsklauseln abgehalten wurden. Als gute Nachricht kann gelten, dass Power-Sharing keinen negativen Effekt auf eine friedliche Entwicklung nach Wahlen zu haben scheint.

    The aim of the present project is to develop a stack design for a 5-kW HTPEFC system. First, the state of the art of potential materials and process designs will be discussed for each component. Then, using this as a basis, three potential stack designs with typical attributes will be developed and assessed in terms of practicality with the aid of a specially derived evaluation method. Two stack designs classified as promising will be discussed in detail, constructed and then characterized using short stack tests. Comparing the stack designs reveals that both designs are fundamentally suitable for application in a HT-PEFC system with on-board supply. However, some of the performance data differ significantly for the two stack designs. The preferred stack design for application in a HT-PEFC system is characterized by robust operating behaviour and reproducible high-level performance data. Moreover, in compact constructions (120 W/l at 60 W/kg), the stack design allows flexible cooling with thermal oil or air, which can be adapted to suit specific applications. Furthermore, a defined temperature gradient can be set during operation, allowing the CO tolerance to be increased by up to 10 mV. The short stack design developed within the scope of the present work therefore represents an ideal basis for developing a 5-kW HT-PEFC system. Topics for further research activities include improving the performance by reducing weight and/or volume, as well as optimizing the heat management. The results achieved within the framework of this work clearly show that HTPEFC stacks have the potential to play a decisive role in increasing efficiency in the future, particularly when combined with an on-board supply system.

    The development of direct-injection gasoline engines at Volkswagen was supported strictly from the beginning by the means of optical diagnostics and CFD-simulations. Basic phenomena, such as the formation of the in-cylinder flow field, the penetration of the spray formed by a hollow-cone swirl-type injector at high fuel pressure, the interaction of spray and flow and the formation of an ignitable mixture were analysed in details. The paper describes the laser-optical techniques-particle-image-velocimetry, laser-Doppler-anemometry, videostroboscopy, high-speed cinematography and laser-induced fluorescence - which were used during the development of the DI gasoline combustion process. Examples taken from engines with optical access to the combustion chamber demonstrate the capability of the techniques and pinpoint where the design of the combustion process benefits from experimental and simulation investigations. (orig.) [German] Die Entwicklung von Ottomotoren mit Benzin-Direkteinspritzung wurde bei Volkswagen von Beginn an konsequent durch den Einsatz optischer Messverfahren und CFD-Simulationen unterstuetzt. Damit konnten grundlegende Phaenomene, wie die Ausbildung des Stroemungsfeldes im Motorbrennraum, die Ausbreitung des durch einen Hohlkegel-Drallinjektor unter hohem Druck eingespritzten Kraftstoffs sowie die Wechselwirkung der Luftstroemung im Zylinder mit den Einspritzstrahlen und die Bildung einer zuendfaehigen Ladungswolke detailliert untersucht werden. Das Paper beschreibt die laseroptischen Messverfahren - Particle-Image-Velocimetry, Laser-Doppler-Anemometry, Video-Stroboskopie, Hochgeschwindikgkeits-Kinematographie und Laserinduzierte Fluoreszenz - die bei der Brennverfahrensentwicklung eingesetzt werden und zeigt anhand einer Reihe von konkreten Beispielen, wo Antworten auf Grundsatzfragen zur Auslegung des Brennverfahrens durch Messergebnisse an optisch zugaenglichen Motoren und durch CFD-Simulationen erarbeitet werden koennen.

    The topic of the habilitation thesis is the development of an X-ray diffraction method for measurement and depth-resolved analysis of internal stresses in the surface region of polycrystalline materials. The method relies on the basic approach of varying {tau}, the penetration depth of the X-rays in the materials, by the scattering vector g{sub theta{psi}} via stepwise specimen rotation. Thus, depth profiles of the interlattice plane distances d(hkl) in the specimen system can be derived for given direction and inclination angles {theta} and {psi} of the scattering vector. This offers the possibility to identify individual components of the stress tensors of the basic equation of the X-ray diffraction analysis, and to perform separate analyses of those components. For calculation of the relevant internal stress distributions {sigma}{sub ij}({tau}) using the interlattice plane distance profiles, a self-consistent method is established which takes into account the high sensitivity of the derived internal stresses in relation to the interlattice plane distance d{sub 0}(hkl) in the stress-free crystal lattice. The evaluation yields results describing the depth profiles as well as the strain-free interlattice plane distance d{sub 0}(hkl), so that a quantitative analysis is possible of tri-axial internal stress states in the surface region of the materials. (orig./CB) [German] Den Gegenstand der vorliegenden Arbeit bildet die Entwicklung eines roentgenographischen Mess- und Auswerteverfahrens zur tiefenaufgeloesten Analyse des oberflaechennahen Eigenspannungszustandes in vielkristallinen Werkstoffen.

Damit koennen Tiefenprofile der Netzebenenabstaende d(hkl) fuer fest vorgegebene Azimut- und Neigungswinkel {theta} und {psi} des Streuvektors im Probensystem ermittelt

    The topic of this thesis has been the development of new heterogeneous catalysts for the decomposition of methanol into hydrogen and carbon monoxide. As an important constraint here, the content of noble metals of the catalysts should be as low as possible. High-throughput-methods were applied in some of the syntheses and experiments to accelerate the development, as, for example, the use of liquid based sol-gel syntheses and the examination of catalyst libraries by spatial resolution gas chromatography. This screening technique allowed to test up to 207 different substances during one single experiment. Then, different combinatorial strategies were applied. First, these methods led to a highly active and stable catalyst in the ternary system of Cu-Ni-Zn, which showed high conversion and selectivity comparable to an industrial reference catalyst. Its activity during an 18 hour long term run was constant in contrast to the reference. Second, an additional approach starting from a broader variety of elements led to a Ce- Ru- and to a Cr-Ru-catalyst. Both of them were highly active in short term experiments, but lost their outstanding performances during long term runs. (orig.) [German] Die vorliegende Arbeit befasste sich mit der Entwicklung neuer heterogener Katalysatoren fuer die Spaltung von Methanol zu Wasserstoff und Kohlenmonoxid, die einen moeglichst geringen Gehalt an Edelmetallen aufweisen sollten. Um diesen Prozess zu beschleunigen, wurden in einem Teil der Synthesen und Experimente Hochdurchsatzmethoden verwendet. Neben der Roboter gestuetzten Sol-Gel-Synthese umfasste dies die Untersuchung von Katalysatorbibliotheken mittels ortsaufgeloester Gaschromatographie, die es ermoeglichte, in einem Experiment bis zu 207 verschiedene Substanzen auf ihre katalytische Aktivitaet zu testen. Unter Anwendung verschiedener kombinatorischer Strategien wurde zunaechst ein sehr aktiver und stabiler Katalysator im ternaeren Cu-Ni-Zn-System entdeckt. Neben Umsaetzen und

    The project intended to develop a galvanizing drum with higher efficiency (30 percent) without inducing limitations, either by reducing the exposure time at identical energy consumption or by permitting a higher coating rate at higher energy consumption. Developments during the last 50 years have been unsatisfactory in this field. (orig.) [German] Ziel des Projektes war, eine Galvanisiertrommel zu entwickeln, die ohne sonstige Einschraenkung eine signifikante Leistungssteigerung erbringt, konkret bei gleichem Energie-Einsatz (V x A) die Expositionszeit beim Galvanisierprozess reduziert oder bei gleichem Energie-Einsatz ein groesseres Warenvolumen mit der gleichen Schichtdicke, galvanisch beschichtet. Angestrebte Effizienzsteierung war 30%. In der gleichen Groessenordnung sollte eine Energieeinsparung einhergehen. In den letzten 50 Jahren gab es nur eine Entwicklung in diese Richtung, die sich aus einer Reihe von Gruenden nicht dauerhaft durchgesetzt hat. (orig.)

    rztliche Handeln essentiell sind. Im Juli 2005 begann der Aufbau eines interdisziplinären Trainingszentrums an der medizinischen Fakultät der Rheinisch-Westfälischen Technischen Hochschule Aachen, genannt „AIXTRA“ (Aachener interdisziplinäres Trainingszentrum für medizinische Ausbildung. Sach- und Personalmittel zur strukturellen und methodischen Etablierung des sog. Skillslab wurden zunächst aus einem fakultätsinternen Förderprogramm für innovative Lehrkonzepte, im weiteren Verlauf zum überwiegenden Teil aus Studienbeiträgen zur Verfügung gestellt. Methodik: Im Vorfeld wurden die folgenden notwendigen Schritte eines Projektmanagements erarbeitet: Entwicklung eines methodischen Rahmenkonzeptes, Definition der inhaltlichen Ausrichtung und Auswahl der Fertigkeiten, Schaffung infrastruktureller Voraussetzungen (Räume, Unterrichtsmaterial, Personal, Konzeptionierung von „Pilot-Kursen“, Realisierung repräsentabler „Meilensteine“, Gewinnung weiterer potenter fakultätsinterner Partner für zukünftigen Ausbau, Implementierung Kursangebot in laufende Curricula, Evaluation der Einzel-Kurse und des Gesamtkonzeptes. Ergebnis: Die vorab festgelegten Teilschritte des Projektmanagements erwiesen sich als zielführend bei der Umsetzung des Projektes. Eine „Minimal“-Infrastruktur in Bezug auf räumliche und personelle Ressourcen wurde etabliert, das methodische Konzept umgesetzt. Im Sommersemester 2008 besuchten insgesamt 709 Teilnehmer in 133 fakultativen Kursen und ca. 900 Studierende in curricularen Veranstaltungen das Skillslab „AIXTRA“. Schlussfolgerung: Nach drei Jahren wird im interdisziplinären Trainingszentrum eine breite Palette von Kursen angeboten, in denen Studierende praktische Fertigkeiten erlernen, trainieren und optimieren können. Die bisher gewonnenen Erfahrungen in der Konzeptionierung und Organisation des Kursprogramms sind essentielle Grundlage für den weiteren strukturellen und methodisch-didaktischen Ausbau des Skillslab.

Nach Angaben der Turbinenhersteller bedeutet dies einen Partikelgehalt <3mg/m{sup 3} i.N. bei einem Partikeldurchmesser < 3 {mu}m und einem Alkaligehalt < 1 ppm. Zur praktischen Erprobung dieser Entwicklung wird in Dorsten auf dem Gelaende eines frueheren STEAG-Kraftwerkes eine Versuchsanlage gefahren. Mit ihr wollen die Betreiber den Gas-Dampfturbinenprozess, der mit Heizoel oder Gas Wirkungsgrade von z.Z. 57 % erreicht, auch fuer Kohle nutzbar machen. Die in Dorsten errichtete Versuchsanlage besitzt eine thermische Leistung von 1 MW und kann bis zu einem Druck von 20 bar betrieben werden. Ein Ueberblick ueber die bisher erzielten Ergebnisse und gewonnenen Erkenntnisse zu Einsatzkohle, Verbrennung und Rauchgasreinigung wird der schematischen Darstellung der Anlage folgend gegeben.

    Fiber optic sensors have been developed or further developed, for specific tasks of the research project reported, as for instance detecting and signalling changes of geophysical or geochemical parameters in underground waste storage sites which are of relevance to operating safety. Such changes include e.g. materials dislocations, extensions, temperatures, humidity, pH value and presence of gaseous carbon dioxide and hydrogen. The measuring principle chosen is the fiber Bragg Grating method, as a particularly versatile method easy to integrate into fiber optic networks. After development and successful lab-scale testing of all sensors, except for the gas sensors, field test systems have been made for underground applications and have been tested in situ in the experimental Konrad mine of DBE. Most of the problems discovered with these tests could be resolved wihtin the given project period, so that finally field-test proven sensing systems are available for further activities. The report explains the system performance with a concrete example which shows inter alia beneficial aspects of the system with respect to on-site operation, and the potentials offered in establishing more direct connections between numerical safety analyses and measured results.

    This report completes the documentation for the research project 'High Pressure Compressor - Preliminary Design as Basis for the Development of an Efficient and Environmentally Friendly Core Engine' which was funded by the Ministry of Economics of State Brandenburg. The objective of the project is to deliver a preliminary compressor aerodynamic design as well as design studies for an efficient, weight and cost improved compressor. The increase of stage pressure ratio and improved efficiency, whilst stage and blade count is reduced, has been achieved by advanced 3D methods. Compressor stability also at off-design conditions will be retained. The mechanical design focusses on a cost and weight optimised rotor not only for a conventional bladed discs but also for Blish stages. Various options for split casings have been developed and assessed. Alternative vortex reducers based on different design options have been carried out. The results from this project will be directly exploited in a follow-on project for a new nine-stage compressor. The new high pressure compressor will be a key element of the future two-shaft-engine architecture. (orig.)

    A new technology for fast, large-surface deposition of high-quality semiconducting thin films for PV systems. The new technology, CSVT (close-space vapour transport), is based on a combination of VPE (vapour phase epitaxy) in open systems and CVT (chemical vapour phase transport) in closed systems. The two-source CVD experiments with two different transport gases, i.e. Cu{sub 2}Se with iodine and Ga{sub 2}Se{sub 3} with HCl, enabled controlled variation of the Cu:Ga ratio in the gaseous phase. The solar cells produced had efficiencies of more than 4%. The best solar cell produced had an efficiency of 4.8% and an open terminal voltage of 863 mV. [German] Ziel des Vorhabens war die Entwicklung einer neuen Technologie zur schnellen, grossflaechigen Abscheidung von qualitativ hochstehenden, halbleitenden Duennschichten fuer die Photovoltaik.

    Aim of the was the development of a prototype of a 3 axis HTc SQUID magnetometer for the geophysical exploration. The prototype was tested during the project in Germany and in China. Metronix task was the supervision of the development with the direction that the sensor can be used for field measurements and that the manufacturing costs will be acceptable. For magnetotelluric measurements (MT/CSAMT) further development is required to enhance the drift and noise properties of the sensor. The advantages in the geophysical TEM exploration are: greater sounding depth and good conductors (ore bodies) can be penetrated completely; the thickness of the resource can be estimated this way. At the same time the measuring time can be reduced tremendously because of the better signal to noise ratio. The productivity of the measuring campaign increases. If due to further developments coils systems can be replaced in total by the SQUID, SQUID systems will dominate the TEM market. (orig.) [German] Ziel des Projektes war es, einen Prototyp eines 3-achsigen HTc SQUIDS zur Verfuegung zu haben, welcher die Anforderungen fuer geophysikalische Messungen erfuellt. Dieser Prototyp wurde im Laufe des Projektes in Deutschland und China getestet. Die Rolle der Firma Metronix in diesem Projekt war die Einflussnahme auf die Entwicklung in der Form, dass zum einen die aus der Feldmesstechnik resultierenden Anforderungen beruecksichtigt werden, zum anderen auf eine spaetere kostenguenstige Herstellung geachtet wird. Bei magnetotellurischen Messungen (MT/CSAMT) besteht weiterer Bedarf an Verbesserungen hinsichtlich der Drift- und Rauscheigenschaften des Sensors. Fuer die geophysikalische Exploration in der TEM ergeben sich folgende Vorteile: die Erkundungstiefe ist groesser und gute Leiter (Erzkoerper) koennen vollstaendig durchteuft werden; damit kann die Maechtigkeit des Vorkommens bestimmt werden. Gleichzeitig kann auf Grund des besseren Signal / Rauschverhaeltnisses die Messzeit deutlich

    The impacts of a long-term change from our present industrial society to an economy based on circular flow concepts approaching the characteristics of the concept of sustainable development have to be taken into account in macroeconomic modelling as well, or else there is no appropriate basis for examination and assessment of the effects of various resource management policy options on the economy. One possible methodological approach is to link single, process-oriented models of sectors of the industry with input-output models and macroeconomic models. This study presents an approach using as an example the pulp and paper industry of Germany, covering the period from 1995 until 2020. The results are found to improve the methodological perspective between the process models and the MIS model of the family of IKARUS models and also offer an additional advantage in that they may serve as a data source for other input-output models and macroeconomic modelling. (orig./CB) [German] Diese Einfluesse eines langfristigen Wandels von einer heutigen Industriegesellschaft zu einer Kreislaufwirtschaft mit Merkmalen einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung muessen sich auch in den Strukturen makrooekonomischer Modelle wiederfinden, um die Auswirkungen verschiedener ressourcenpolitischer Optionen auf die Wirtschaft angemessen pruefen zu koennen. Ein methodischer Weg zu dieser Aufgabe ist die Verknuepfung einzelner prozessorientierter Branchenmodelle mit Input-Output-Modellen und makrooekonomischen Modellen. Der vorliegende Bericht will hierzu einen Baustein am Beispiel der Zellstoff- und Papierindustrie fuer die Bundesrepublik Deutschland fuer die Zeitperiode 1995-2020 beitragen. Diese Ergebnisse verbessern nicht nur die methodische Perspektive zwischen den Prozessmodellen und dem MIS-Modell der IKARUS-Modellfamilie, sondern koennen als Erfahrungs- und Datenquelle fuer andere Input-Output-Modelle und makrooekonomische Modelle genutzt werden.

    The main topics of this thesis are the development and characterization of La/B{sub 4}C multilayer systems. For this these materials were evaluated and characterized for the applied electron-beam evaporation. For the monitoring of the evaporation process two separate in-situ layer thicknesses were available. For periodic multilayer systems the X-ray reflectometry used for Mo/Si multilayers was accepted. Because of the change from Mo/Si on La/B{sub 4}C the driving of the evaporation process had to be material-conditionedly further developed and optimized. For the fabrication of aperiodic La/B{sub 4}C multilayer systems additionally an in-situ ellipsometer was taken into operation. Furthermore a decreasement of the interface roughnesses and by this following increasement of the reflectivities of La/B{sub 4}C multilayers by polishing of the single layers with accelerated ions during the fabrication shall be studied. The fabricated multilayers are characterized and evaluated concerning roughnesses, reflectivities, ans spectral band width. [German] Im Mittelpunkt dieser Arbeit stehen die Entwicklung und Charakterisierung von La/B{sub 4}C-Multischichtsystemen. Dazu wurden diese Materialien fuer die verwendete Elektronenstrahlverdampfung evaluiert und charakterisiert. Fuer die Ueberwachung des Aufdampfprozesses standen zwei separate In-situ Schichtdickenkontrollen zur Verfuegung. Fuer periodische Multischichtsysteme wurde die fuer Mo/Si-Multischichten genutzte Roentgenreflektometrie uebernommen. Aufgrund des Wechsels von Mo/Si auf La/B{sub 4}C musste materialbedingt die Steuerung des Verdampfungsprozesses weiterentwickelt und optimiert werden. Fuer die Herstellung aperiodischer La/B{sub 4}C-Multischichtsysteme wurde zusaetzlich ein In-situ Ellipsometer in Betrieb genommen. Des Weiteren soll eine Senkung der Grenzflaechenrauigkeiten und damit einhergehende Erhoehung der Reflektivitaeten von La/B{sub 4}C-Multischichten durch das Polieren mit beschleunigten Ionen der

    The PVS simulation program for Windows was to be extended to the development and simulation of PV-supported equipment and small systems. The following new functions were to be integrated: a) Simulation and dimensioning of indoor power supply of systems with different light sources and independent outdoor systems. b)Integration of small wind generators in the simulation and dimensioning of isolated autonomous systems, including wind data and a component database for small wind turbines; c) Differentiation of the PVS battery model for different battery types (lead, Ni/Cd, Li etc.), optimized operating strategies and flexible dimensioning including an additional component database for battery types; d) Extensive cost analysis for PV-supported appliances and small systems, from investments to consumption, operation and maintenance. This will facilitate investment decisions and help systems of this type along in the market. All program components were designed for high flexibility. Users should be able to vary as many parameters as possible, and to generate and modify their own records. The current project focused on the user interface, i.e. input, data processing, and output. Parallel to this, the Fraunhofer ISE Institute worked on modifications of the computer hardware. [German] Das Projekt zielte auf eine Erweiterung des Simulationsprogramms PVS fuer Windows zur Entwicklung und Simulation von PV-versorgten Geraeten und Kleinsystemen hin.

    The main goal of the interdisciplinary research syndicate was to develop integral strategies for overcoming the water availability problems and conflicts of water use following in the wake of global change as well as the environmental and socio-economic problems resulting from this in the Elbe catchment area. To negotiate this task the Integrative Methodological Approach of GLOWA-Elbe (IMA) was developed and applied. The entire river system of the Elbe served as study region. The study also included an intensive substudy focussing on water quality problems of the Unstrut river system as well as an analysis of the momentous surface water availability conflicts in the Spree catchment area which was performed for the Upper Spree and Spree Forest subregions (cf. Dietrich et al. 2004) and Berlin (cf. Finke et al. 2003). The project on the Upper Spree subregion, performed as part of GLOWA Elbe, was dedicated to an analysis and assessment of the Upper Spree subregion where, as a result of the decade-long history of brown coal mining in that area, one of Germany's greatest surface water availability and quality conflicts has evolved. It was in the context of this subregion project that IMA was developed and tested. The present outcome report presents the more important water management and socio-economic results of this subregion project, though various results from other part-projects of GLOWA Elbe have also been incorporated. Reports dealing with individual aspects of the GLOWA Elbe project in greater detail have been published elsewhere. Interested readers are referred to the GLOWA Elbe website at http://www.glowa-elbe.de and to the PIK report. The latter report contains, in various places, references to further literature on the Upper Spree subregion project.

    Purpose: To develop a model for simulation the CT morphologic situation of acute pulmonary embolism, to evaluate the accuracy of spiral CT and 3D reconstruction in the detection of artificial emboli and to investigate the influence of the orientation of emboli depending on z-axis orientation. Materials and Methods: Standardized artificial emboli made of wax and of defined size and shape were positioned into the pulmonary arteries of porcine lungs. Castings of the embolized pulmonary arterial trees were made by injection of a special opaque resin. After performance of spiral CT the data sets of the emboli and the pulmonary arteries were post-processed. The 3D segmentations were compared with the anatomic preparation to evaluate the accuracy of spiral CT/3D reconstruction-technique. Technical specimens simulating CT-morphology of acute embolized vessels underwent spiral CT in six different positions with respect to the z-axis. The CT data were reconstructed using a standardized and a contrastadapted method with interactive correction. The 3D emboli were analysed under qualitative aspects, and measurements of their extent were done. Results: In nearly 91%, there was complete agreement between CT and the corresponding findings at the anatomical preparation. Measurements of the 3D reconstructed technical specimens showed discrepancies of shape and size in dependence of the size of the original preparation, orientation and reconstruction technique. Overestimation up to 4 mm and underestimation to 2,2 mm were observed. Measurements of preparations with heights from 14 to 26 mm showed variances of {+-}1,5 mm ({proportional_to}6-11%). Conclusion: The presented models are suitable to simulate CT morphology of acute pulmonary embolism under ex-vivo conditions. Accuracy in the detection of artificial emboli using spiral CT/3D reconstruction is affected by localization, size and orientation of the emboli and the reconstruction technique. (orig.)

    Within the scope of the before hot dip galvanizing necessary treatment in pickling bathes, which are mostly run with hydrochloric acid the possibility of development of atomic hydrogen on the steel surface is given. The subsequent described trials aimed at making the process of hot dip galvanizing of high tensile fasteners, which are possibly susceptible of cracking due to influences of hydrogen because of their high tensile strength, more controllable under aspects of quality assurance and possibly improve the process. The field-suitable test method for process monitoring of inhibited pickling bathes is realized by tension tests. The test method works with locking rings according to DIN 471 in a specially developed tensioning device. The safety of the indication of the test method is proved by the comparison of the results with those achieved with other test methods achieved with the same pickling bathes. The ''safety of iteration'' of the developed test method is proved by similar results of trials with samples from different charges of production and heat treatment. As a consequence the tension test is qualified as test method for the field. In addition it requires little time and expenses, is easy to handle and has a robust and fault-tolerant construction. With the testing scheme developed during the project it is moreover possible to evaluate capaciously the effectiveness of inhibitors for the pickling of high-tensile fasteners.

[German] Ziel: Entwicklung und Anwendung dynamischer Magnetresonanztomographiemessungen zur Erhebung von Perfusionsparametern bei Rektumkarzinomen unter Bestrahlung in der klinischen Routine. Patienten und Methode: Bei Rektumkarzinompatienten (n=8), die sich einer praeoperativen kombinierten Radiochemotherapie unterzogen, wurden Perfusionsdaten erhoben. An einem 1,5-Tesla-Ganzkoerperkernspintomographen wurden ultraschnelle T1-Mapping-Sequenzen zum Erhalt von T1-Maps mit Intervallen von 14 und 120 Sekunden implementiert. Die Messzeit der dynamischen Messungen betrug 40 Minuten. Die Messschicht (Schichtdicke 5 mm) wurde so gewaehlt, dass sowohl Tumor als auch arterielle Gefaesse dargestellt wurden. Gadolinium-DTPA-(Gd-DTPA-)Konzentrations-Zeit-Kurven wurden nach einem prolongierten Bolus im arteriellen Blut und im Tumor berechnet. Die angewendete Methode erlaubte eine raeumliche Aufloesung von 2x2x5 mm und eine zeitliche Aufloesung von 14 Sekunden. Die Messdaten wurden vor und in konstanten Intervallen waehrend Therapie erhoben. Ergebnisse: Die raeumliche und zeitliche Aufloesung der T1-Maps war ausreichend, um Areale mit unterschiedlicher Kontrastmittelkinetik innerhalb des Tumors zu erfassen sowie die grossen Beckenarterien sicher zu identifizieren. Bei sechs Patienten konnten Gd-DTPA-Konzentrationskurven im Tumor unter Therapie erhoben werden. Der Perfusionsindex (Pi) versus Strahlendosis zeigte eine signifikante Zunahme in der ersten oder zweiten Woche der Bestrahlung, bevor er entweder kontinuierlich absank oder nach anfaenglichem Abfall einen erneuten Anstieg aufwies. Der durchschnittliche Pi-Ausgangswert betrug 0,16 ({+-}0,049), das durchschnittliche Pi-Maximum war 0,23 ({+-}0,058). Die relativen Perfusionsveraenderungen betrugen zwischen 20 und 83%. Schlussfolgerung: Unsere Ergebnisse zeigen, dass sich die verwendete Methode zur Erfassung von Perfusionsparametern unter Bestrahlung eignet und in der klinischen Routine anwendbar ist.

Als Zugang wurde die Technologie der interaktiven Whitebords gewählt, um gegenwärtige Entwicklungen der Digitalisierung von Unterrichtsräumen zu thematisieren und dabei ausgewählte Aspekte von Medienkompetenz zu fördern. In dem Projekt haben verschiedene Einrichtungen der Universität und der Lehrerbildung kooperiert, um eine Multiplikator/-innenschulung für Studierende zu erarbeiten und zu etablieren. Es wurde eine 28-stündige Qualifizierungsreihe entwickelt, die sich aus modularisierten Workshops zur medientechnischen und -didaktischen Auseinandersetzung mit interaktiven Whiteboards, Elementen der Tutor/-innenausbildung sowie der Erarbeitung eines eigenen Unterrichtsentwurfes zusammensetzt. In dem Artikel werden die entwickelten Module vorgestellt und bewertet, inwieweit sie den von Herzig, Aßmann und Klar (2014 formulierten Zielvorstellungen zur Medienkompetenzförderung für das Lehramtsstudium entsprechen. Im Abgleich mit diesen Zielvorstellungen werden Entwicklungspotentiale des Konzepts identifiziert. Darüber hinaus fliessen Ergebnisse der praktischen Durchführung in Optimierungsvorschläge zur Steigerung der Nachhaltigkeit und Qualität der didaktischen Kompetenzen zum Einsatz von interaktiven Whiteboards in der Lehramtsausbildung – und darüber vermittelt im Schulunterricht – ein.

    Abstract: The innermost layer of the ATLAS tracking system is a silicon pixel detector. The use of radiation tolerant components is mandatory due to the harsh radiation environment. The smallest independent component of the pixel detector is a hybride pixel module consisting of a large oxygen enriched silicon sensor and 16 specifically developed ASICs. To achieve the necessary radiation tolerance the ASICs are produced in a 0.25 µm technology in combination with special design techniques. The measurements of the readout electronics during all stages of production of a full module are presented and the performance of the modules is compared with the strict requirements of the ATLAS pixel detector. Furthermore a new powering scheme for pixel detectors is presented, aiming at reducing the total power consumption, the material for the electrical services and the amount of power cables. The advantages and disadvantages of this concept are discussed on the example of the ATLAS pixel detector with pixel modules mo...

    Psychiatric reforms in Upper Austria have considerably improved the quality of life of psychiatric patients. Modernizing the status of acute psychiatric departments based on a bio- psycho-, social concept implemented multidimensional approach in diagnostics and therapeutic methods applied by multiprofessional teams. Prophylactic procedures and rehabilitation programs have minimized chronification of psychiatric diseases. By "late rehabilitation programs" increased autonomy, more individualized planning of life processes could be achieved even with "chronic" patients. We do not see any need to confine "chronic" psychiatric patients in psychiatric hospitals. These patients are cared for, socially integrated by special rehabilitation measures and professional rehabilitation in community - based services and units of Pro Mente Upper Austria - a non-profit organization. Problems are decreased duration of stay in psychiatric hospitals, increased admission rates when the number of beds in psychiatric departments was considerably decreased in the course of psychiatric reforms in Austria. In our province - Upper Austria - these problems are of lesser importance because private non-profit organizations like Pro Mente Upper Austria have provided a variety of community-based services (mental health centres, day clinics, housing facilities and special services for drug addicts and geriatric patients ) in ever increasing numbers. Still there is need of further development of community-based services provided by specially trained professionals. These services are financed mainly by the state, the provincial government, the labour market services and to a small degree by funds of the European Union. In these days of reduced social budgets of the state and social departments of provincial governments it is not easy to keep our standards and meet the increased needs of our clients.

    In this work, large area epitaxial 3C-SiC films on Si(100) and Si(111) were formed by ion beam synthesis and subsequently characterized for their structural and crystalline properties. These SiC/Si structures are meant to be used as SiC pseudosubstrates for the homo- and heteroepitaxial growth of other compound semiconductors. The suitability of these pseudosubstrates for this purpose was tested using various epitaxial systems and thin film growth methods. For this the homoepitaxial growth of 3C-SiC employing C{sub 60}-MBE and the heteroepitaxial growth of hexagonal GaN films grown by MOCVD and IBAMBA was studied in detail. The comparison of the structural and crystalline properties with data from literature enabled a qualified judgement of the potential of the 3C-SiC pseudosubstrates as an alternative substrate for the epitaxial growth of such films. These new 3C-SiC pseudosubstrates also enabled studies of other little known epitaxial systems: For the first time hexagonal ZnO films on (111) oriented pseudosubstrates were grown using PLD. The method if IBAMBE enabled the growth of cubic GaN layers on (100)-oriented pseudosubstrates. (orig.)

    Liquid and gaseous releases of {sup 129}I from European reprocessing plants result in a continuous accumulation in the environment. Aim of the project was to quantify the inventories and input and discharges of {sup 127}I and {sup 129}I of different environmental compartments all over Germany. Aerosol, rainwater and river water samples were collected continuously over a period of 2 years. Additionally, soil samples were collected at 30 different sampling sites. For {sup 127}I no correlation of concentration or deposition rates and distance of sampling sites from the North Sea was found for aerosol and precipitation samples, whereas the results for {sup 129}I showed decreasing values with increasing distance from the coast. Also for {sup 129}I inventories of soils a trend to decrease could be observed from the northern to the southern and from the western to the eastern part of the country. However, there is a close relationship between iodine and soil properties. Comparison of results with earlier investigations does not show a current increase of isotopic ratios and deposition rates. Thus, at present {sup 129}I concentrations and isotopic ratios do not pose the risk of an increased thyroid dose for the public.

    In the research project on the ''Review and development of safety-related assessments of disposal facilities with negligible heat generation; development and provision of the necessary set of tools, using the example of the Konrad disposal facility'' (Untersuchung und Entwicklung von sicherheitstechnischen Bewertungen fuer Endlager fuer Abfaelle mit vernachlaessigbarer Waermeentwicklung; Entwicklung und Bereitstellung des notwendigen Instrumentariums am Beispiel des Endlagers Konrad - Forschungsvorhaben 3612R03410), the state of the art in science and technology of the safety-related assessments and sets of tools for building a safety case was examined. The reports pertaining to the two work packages described the further development of the methodology for accident analyses (WP 1) and of building a safety case (WP 2); also, comparisons were drawn on a national and international scale with the methods applied in the licensing procedure of the Konrad disposal facility. As part of the project, the report of Work Package 1 depicts the methodology of the operating safety analysis in order to control malfunctions and incidents (accident analysis) using the example of the Konrad mine accident analysis. Set of criteria in this connection is the state-of-the-art international and national comprehensive body of legislation identifying the incident requirements. In extracts complementary safety analysis procedures of other countries are presented where applicable. It becomes apparent, that the majority of the investigated countries use a deterministic accident analyses to identify incidents. Here, common international practice is to com-plement the deterministic accident analysis by a probabilistic analysis. This procedure acts on the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) terms of reference using both deterministic and probabilistic methods for the determination of facility hazard potentials. Based on the Konrad mine method, aspects of incident

    Natural gas qualities in Europe will become increasingly diverse and combustion characteristics (Wobbe index, methane number) will vary over wider ranges. The article presents the gas qualities to be expected over the medium term and analyses and discusses their effects on future gas utilisation. Aside from rich (high-calorific) LNG qualities, future natural gas and biomethane qualities are not expected to cause problems in gas utilisation in most European countries. This also applies where up to 10 % of hydrogen produced from renewable surplus electricity is admixed except for three important applications: tanks for compressed natural gas used as a motor fuel, gas turbines with premixed burners and underground porous rock storage facilities; here further R and D input is still required. Biomethane produced from contaminated feedstock may carry undesirable trace substances. Particularly careful treatment and quality control are then necessary. Hydrogen or methane produced from renewable surplus electricity will have a high purity level and, like biomethane, will contribute to further reducing CO{sub 2} emissions. This will make natural gas an even more climate-protecting fuel compared with other fossil fuels. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Mit der gegenwärtigen Diskussion um Mediatisierung und Digitalisierung ist die Forderung verbunden, der Medienbildung und/oder der informatischen Bildung ein größeres Gewicht in der schulischen Bildung zu verschaffen. Dies legt die Frage nahe, wie ein produktives Verhältnis zwischen beiden gestaltet werden sollte und wie beide am besten zu einer zeitgemäßen Bildung beitragen können. Bei entsprechenden Überlegungen spielen unter anderem Entwicklungen eine Rolle, die sich seit frühen Forderungen nach einer Computerbildung im Verhältnis zur damaligen Medienerziehung herausgebildet haben. In dem vorliegenden Beitrag werden solche Entwicklungen skizziert und Schlussfolgerungen für die gegenwärtige Diskussion formuliert. Dabei kommen unterschiedliche Auffassungen zur bildungsbezogenen Auseinandersetzung mit Medien sowie mit Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien in den Blick. Für das Verhältnis von Medienbildung und informatischer Bildung ergibt sich als zentrale Schlussfolgerung, dass sowohl eine Integration der informatischen Bildung in die Medienbildung als auch eine umgekehrte Lösung unangemessen erscheint, wiewohl beide Bereiche auf Anteile aus dem jeweils anderen Bereich angewiesen sind. Danach werden für eine Medienbildung mit informatischen Anteilen ein geeigneter Medienbegriff und eine tragfähige Bildungsauffassung sowie ein Ansatz zu einem inhaltlich-thematischen Kompetenzrahmen beschrieben. Überlegungen zur schulischen Umsetzung schließen den Beitrag ab.

    In West Germany, 2.5 - 2.75 million t/a of dehydrated sewage sludge from municipal sewage systems must be managed every year. About 30% of this volume is used in agriculture, 14% is combusted,and 56% is dumped. Medium-term forecasts envisage a further increase of the sewage sludge volume to about 3 million t/a for East Germany and West Germany together. According to the specifications of the TA Siedlungsabfall (Technical Guide for Management of Domestic Waste), dumping of untreated sewage sludge will be prohibited from 2005 at the latest. (orig.) [Deutsch] In den alten Bundeslaendern sind derzeit 2,5-2,75 Mio. t/a Klaerschlammtrockensubstanz (TS) aus der kommunalen Abwasserreinigung zu entsorgen, von denen z.Zt. ca. 30% landwirtschaftlich verwertet, ca. 14% verbrannt und 56% auf Deponien abgelagert werden. Die mittelfristigen Erwartungen gehen von einem weiteren Anstieg der Klaerschlamm-Mengen aus, so dass in den alten und neuen Bundeslaendern mit mehr als 3 Mio. t/a Klaerschlammtrockensubstanz (TS) zu rechnen ist, die einer Entsorgung zugefuehrt werden muessen (Quelle: H. Kaiser Unternehmensberatung Tuebingen 1996). Aufgrund der Anforderungen der TA Siedlungsabfall wird spaetestens ab dem Jahr 2005 eine direkte Ablagerung von unbehandelten Klaerschlaemmen auf Deponien wegen des zu hohen organischen Anteils nicht mehr zulaessig sein.

    The change of the individual mobility on environmentally friendly and sustainable approach is not only in Germany an important concern, but also a global challenge. The main reasons for an involvement are dwindling crude oil reserves and the greenhouse effect. Due to the road traffic as one of the largest emitters of CO{sub 2} possibilities are discussed to make mobility more environmentally friendly and energy-politically sustainable. In this context, the electric car is seen as a possible component of the vision for the future of the environment and mobility. The contribution under consideration reports on the possible development of electric vehicles in Munich in 2030 based on three scenarios. The results are based on a fundamental study of the Institute fortiss GmbH (Munich, Federal Republic of Germany) and a recent study by the Research center for Energy Economics (Munich, Federal Republic of Germany) for electric vehicles.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this paper is to analyze the legal and economical problems of the PPP-projects (mainly in Tallinn and the comparative analysis of the PPP-projects in some EU countries. Unfortunately the PPP-projects in Estonia is such a new topic that there have been no scientifically qualifiying publications written about it. Quite many topic-related articles have been published in journalism but the purpose of them has been mainly political. In Estonia (mainly in Tallinn the PPP-projects have been exercised since year 2000. Since then the PPP-projects have been debated over by the state (Ministry of Finance and the City of Tallinn about whether the PPPprojects should be counted into the debt obligations of the city or not? According to the Rural Municipality and City Budget Act a rural municipality or city may take loans, on the following conditions, the total amount of unrepaid loans shall not exceed 60 percent 20 per cent of proposed budget revenue for that budgetary year. Until 2008 Tallinn counted the costs of the PPP-projects only as yearly payments to the private sector but not as a loan. Since 2009 the new bookkeeping rules were enacted and the PPP-projects were counted upon the local government dept obligations. Thereat it is relevant to mention that the methodics of the Eurostat don`t calculate PPP-projects as dept obligations of the public sector. Until now the PPPprojects in Estonia have been exercised only for some years and it has been done only for renovation of the social infrastructure objects (schools or construction (dwelling houses, sport structures. Although the PPP-projects have been planned to be used in development of the technical infrastructures (roads these plans haven`t been accomplished yet. PPP-projects have been Tallinn-centered and the reason for this is that Tallinn has compared to other cities a lot more potential to administer and finance the complicated projects. More extensive use of the PPP-projects has been obstructed by the lack of the statewide regulations

    Air pollution has markedly decreased in the last 20 years. Through the introduction of filter and flue-gas denitrification systems in power plants and industrial installations; and the use of modern catalysts and fuels, considerably fewer pollutants are today released into the atmosphere. EU-wide air quality limit values for sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, benzene and lead are no longer exceeded in Germany. On their way from the emission source (for example, flue or exhaust) to receptor (humans, flora and fauna), pollutant emissions are subject to atmospheric transport and mixing processes as well as chemical reaction. Pollutant concentration in the atmosphere (given, for example, in micrograms per cubic metre of air) can therefore not be directly deduced from the emitted pollutant quantity (given, for example, in tonnes per year). In principle, however, markedly reduced pollutant emissions give cause to expect that pollutant concentration in the atmosphere will also decrease. We observe, however, that since the beginning of this decade air pollution in Germany through particulates, nitrogen oxide and ozone, despite steadily reduced emissions, no longer shows a clear trend, but is subject rather to mainly interannual fluctuations. The limit values for particulates, which were laid down already in 1999 and are obligatory since 2005, are exceeded in many places in Germany. The same applies for limit values for nitrogen dioxide, which come into force in Germany on 1 January 2010. In urban areas - and, above all, in places affected by heavy traffic - air pollution with particulates and nitrogen dioxide is particularly high. Other than in the case of particulates and nitrogen dioxide, ozone pollution is highest in rural areas. For some years, a trend towards higher ozone concentrations has been noticeable in urban areas. In this booklet we describe trends in air pollution with particulates, nitrogen dioxide and ozone, and explain their connection to changes in air pollutant emissions. (orig.)

    At cryostats and dewars for lowest temperatures - especially in connection with liquid-helium cooling at around 4 K, as well at the most applications of the superconductivity - often joints and shutters on the base of low-temperature suited adhesive tapes are required. A current method for the thermal isolation of cold surfaces is their covering with highly reflecting aluminium foils, which are fastened by adhesive aluminium tapes. Selection, usage, and reliability estimation of presumably suited adhesive tapes respectively aluminium tapes occurs presently rather heuristically. A corresponding testing apparature for the measurement of the maximal pulling force was developed and tested by means of a series of test measurements. The testing set-up and measurement results for the validation of the measurement concept with adhesive aluminium tapes are presented in this contribution.

    For the accurate measurement of gas density in natural gas meter runs, a special test densimeter has been developed. It covers a temperature range from 0 C to 50 C at pressures up to 100 bar; its total uncertainty is {<=}{+-}0.05% for densities {>=}20 kg/m{sup 3}. The new densimeter has been specially designed as a portable device for in situ checking of commercial gas density transducers (with vibrating thin-walled metal cylinders or vibrating forks as density sensors) installed in natural gas meter runs with density converters or differential-producing meters. Also, it can be used in natural gas meter runs with PTZ converters to check the density calculated by the converter or to check verification measurements. This paper describes the measurement principle and the design of the densimeter and presents the results of field measurements performed. (orig.)

    The present technology assessment study examines the effects of three technology scenarios on future energy consumption and the energy-related emissions by industrial manufacturing in Switzerland. The three paths of development (Trend, High-Tech, Alternative) can be represented as follows: After a reduction until 2015, the Trend development entails a slight increase in consumption of energy. Until then consumption is some 10 percent lower in both the High-Tech and the Alternative Scenarios. Consumption of electricity increases in all scenarios, the proportion is highest in 20 year's time under the High-Tech scenario. SO{sub 2} and CO{sub 2} emissions decrease in all scenarios until 2000 and then level out at a low level. The emissions are lowest in the High-Tech scenario. In contrast the NO{sub x} and the VOC emissions diminish until 2000 and then rise again continuously. At this juncture important bases are still not yet available for a definitive evaluation with respect to the sustainable development. Sustainability objectives are currently being compiled for Switzerland in the wake of the Berlin Climate Conference and the Rio Conference. In the political lobbies the Green factions are making demands, such as those currently under discussion internationally (e.g. CO{sub 2} reductions on a scale of some 80 percent by 2050), whereas conservative and industrial circle representatives support the objective of sustainable development but reject a quantification of objectives. The official objectives of the Swiss Energy 2000 programme can be achieved with all scenarios. With the High-Tech and Alternative scenarios, concepts of a reduction in CO{sub 2} by 20 percent by 2015 (as currently under discussion in Switzerland), are realistic. However, further energy-relevant efficiency potentials in industrial production can be activated by energy-policy motivated measures. More extensive objectives, such as e.g. a CO{sub 2} reduction of 50 percent, are hardly attainable, even in the long-term, without sufficiency considerations in industrial production. The degree of acceptance of measures diminishes on the conservative and business sides with increasing interventionism whereas the Green lobby would put up with direct guidance measures and, above all, negative effects on the Swiss labour market.

  15. Entwicklung von Landnutzungsszenarien für landschaftsökologische Fragestellungen

    2002-04-01

    Die Landschaften Mitteleuropas sind das Resultat einer langwierigen Geschichte menschlicher Landnutzung mit ihren unterschiedlichen, z.T. konkurrierenden Nutzungsansprüchen. Durch eine überwiegend intensive Beanspruchung haben die direkten und indirekten Auswirkungen der Landnutzung in vielen Fällen zu Umweltproblemen geführt. Die Disziplin der Landschaftsökologie hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, Konzepte für eine nachhaltige Nutzung der Landschaft zu entwickeln. Eine wichtige Fragestellung stellt dabei die Abschätzung der möglichen Folgen von Landnutzungsänderungen dar. Für die Analyse der relevanten Prozesse in der Landschaft werden häufig mathematische Modelle eingesetzt, welche es erlauben die Landschaft unter aktuellen Verhältnissen oder hinsichtlich veränderter Rahmenbedingungen zu untersuchen. Die hypothetische Änderung der Landnutzung, die als Landnutzungsszenario bezeichnet wird, verkörpert eine wesentliche Modifikation der Rahmenbedingungen, weil Landnutzung mageblich Einfluss auf die natürlichen Prozesse der Landschaft nimmt. Während die Antriebskräfte einer solchen Änderung überwiegend von sozio-ökonomischen und politischen Entscheidungen gesteuert werden, orientiert sich die exakte Verortung der Landnutzungsänderungen an den naturräumlichen Bedingungen und folgt z.T. erkennbaren Regeln. Anhand dieser Vorgaben ist es möglich, räumlich explizite Landnutzungsszenarien zu entwickeln, die als Eingangsdaten für die Modellierung verschiedener landschaftsökologischer Fragestellungen wie z.B. für die Untersuchung des Einflusses der Landnutzung auf den Wasserhaushalt, die Erosionsgefahr oder die Habitatqualität dienen können. Im Rahmen dieser Dissertation wurde das rasterbasierte deterministische Allokationsmodell luck (Land Use Change Scenario Kit) für die explizite Verortung der Landnutzungsänderungen entwickelt. Es basiert auf den in der Landschaftsökologie üblichen räumlichen Daten wie Landnutzung, Boden sowie Topographie und richtet sich bei der Szenarienableitung nach den Leitbildern der Landschaftsplanung. Das Modell fut auf der Hypothese, dass das Landnutzungsmuster als Funktion seiner landschaftsökologischen Faktoren beschrieben werden kann. Das Veränderungspotenzial einer Landnutzungseinheit resultiert im Modell aus einer Kombination der Bewertung der relativen Eignung des Standortes für die jeweilige Landnutzung und der Berücksichtigung von Standorteigenschaften der umliegenden Nachbarn. Die Durchführung der Landnutzungsänderung im Modell ist iterativ angelegt, um den graduellen Prozess des Landschaftswandels nachvollziehen zu können. Als Fallbeispiel für die Anwendung solcher räumlich expliziten Landnutzungsszenarien dient die Fragestellung, inwieweit Landnutzungsänderungen die Hochwasserentstehung beeinflussen. Um den Einfluss auf die Hochwasserentstehung für jede der Landnutzungskategorien – bebaute, landwirtschaftlich genutzte und naturnahe Flächen – abschätzen zu können, wird im Landnutzungsmodell luck exemplarisch für jede Kategorie ein Teilmodell für die Veränderung von Landnutzung angeboten: 1) Ausdehnung der Siedlungsfläche: Dieses Teilmodell fut auf der Annahme, dass sich Siedlungen nur in direkter Nachbarschaft bereits bestehender Bebauung und bevorzugt entlang von Entwicklungsachsen ausbreiten. Steile Hangneigungen stellen für potenzielle Standorte ein Hemmnis bei der Ausbreitung dar. 2) Stilllegung von Grenzertragsackerflächen: Gemä der Hypothese, dass sich die Stilllegung von Ackerflächen an der potenziellen Ertragsleistung der Standorte orientiert, werden in diesem Teilmodell alle Ackerstandorte dahingehend bewertet und die Flächen mit der geringsten Leistungsfähigkeit stillgelegt. Bei homogenen Gebietseigenschaften werden die Stilllegungsflächen zufällig auf die Ackerfläche verteilt. 3) Etablierung von Schutzgebieten in Ufer- und Auenbereichen: Ausgehend von der These, dass sich entlang von Flüssen sensible Flächen befinden, deren Schutz positive Folgen für das Leistungsvermögen der Landschaft haben kann, werden in diesem Teilmodell schützenswerte Ufer- und Auenbereiche auf derzeit landwirtschaftlich genutzten Flächen ausgewiesen. Die Gröe der Schutzgebietsfläche orientiert sich an der Morphologie der umgebenden Landschaft. Die drei Teilmodelle wurden hinsichtlich der implizierten Hypothesen mit vielen unterschiedlichen Ansätzen validiert. Das Resultat dieser intensiven Analyse zeigt für jedes Teilmodell eine zufriedenstellende Tauglichkeit. Die Modellierung der Landnutzungsänderungen wurden in drei mesoskaligen Flusseinzugsgebieten mit einer Fläche zwischen 100 und 500 km² durchgeführt, die sich markant in ihrer Landnutzung unterscheiden. Besonderer Wert wurde bei der Gebietsauswahl darauf gelegt, dass eines der Gebiete intensiv landwirtschaftlich genutzt wird, eines dicht besiedelt und eines vorwiegend bewaldet ist. Im Hinblick auf ihre Relevanz für die vorliegende Fragestellung wurden aus bestehenden Landnutzungstrends die Szenarien für (1) die prognostizierte Siedlungsfläche für das Jahr 2010, (2) die möglichen Konsequenzen des EU-weiten Beschlusses der Agenda 2000 und (3) die Novelle des Bundesnaturschutzgesetzes aus dem Jahr 2001 abgeleitet. Jedes Szenario wurde mit Hilfe des Modells auf die drei Untersuchungsgebiete angewendet. Dabei wurden für die Siedlungsausdehnung in allen drei Gebieten realistische Landnutzungsmuster generiert. Einschränkungen ergeben sich bei der Suche nach Grenzertragsstilllegungsflächen. Hier hat unter homogenen Gebietseigenschaften die zufällige Verteilung von Flächen für die Stilllegung zu einem unrealistischen Ergebnis geführt. Die Güte der Schutzgebietsausweisung ist mageblich an die aktuelle Landnutzung der Aue und die Morphologie des Geländes gebunden. Die besten Ergebnisse werden erzielt, wenn die Flächen in den Ufer- und Auenbereichen mehrheitlich unter derzeitiger Ackernutzung stehen und der Flusslauf sich in das Relief eingetieft hat. Exemplarisch werden für jeden Landnutzungstrend die hydrologischen Auswirkungen anhand eines historischen Hochwassers beschrieben, aus denen jedoch keine pauschale Aussage zum Einfluss der Landnutzung abgeleitet werden kann. Die Studie demonstriert die Bedeutung des Landnutzungsmusters für die natürlichen Prozesse in der Landschaft und unterstreicht die Notwendigkeit einer räumlich expliziten Modellierung für landschaftsökologische Fragestellungen in der Mesoskala. Today′s landscapes in Central Europe are the result of a long history of land-use, which is characterised by many different demands. The immediate and long-term consequences of predominantly intensive land-use have led to environmental problems in many cases. Therefore it is necessary to develop strategies for the maintenance of landscape efficiency which take into account the different claims of utilisation. In this context the estimation of possible impacts of land-use changes represents an important statement of problem. For the analysis of the relevant processes within the landscape, it is common to apply mathematical models. Such models enable the investigation of the landscape under current conditions or with regard to modified boundary conditions. A hypothetic alteration of land-use, which is termed as land-use scenario, represents a substantial modification of the boundary conditions, because land-use exerts a strong influence on the natural processes of the landscape. While the driving forces are predominantly governed by socio-economical and political decisions, the exact location of land-use changes within the landscape mainly depends on the natural conditions and follows partly transparent rules. With these presumptions it is possible to develop land-use scenarios, which can serve as input data for the modelling of different questions of landscape ecology such as the influence of land-use on the water balance, the danger of erosion or the quality of habitat characteristics. In the context of this thesis the grid-based deterministic allocation model luck (Land Use Change Scenario Kit) for the allocation of land-use changes was developed. It is based upon the types of spatial data, which are commonly used in landscape ecology, such as information on land-use, soils as well as topography. The derivation of scenarios follows the approaches of landscape planning. The model is based upon the hypothesis, that land-use structure can be described as a function of its landscape ecological factors. The potential of a site to become subject to land-use changes, results from a combination of its local qualities and the site characteristics of its neighbourhood. Land-use change is realised iteratively in order to simulate the gradual process of changes in the landscape. The influence of land-use changes on flood generation serves as a case study to demonstrate the need for spatial explicit land-use scenarios. For each land-use category – built up areas, agriculturally used areas and natural/semi-natural land – the model luck offers a submodel for investigating the effect of land-use changes on flood generation: 1) Expansion of settlement area: This submodel is based upon the assumption that settlements spread only in the neighbourhood of already existing built-up areas and preferentially along infrastructural axes of development. Steep slopes inhibit the spreading on potential locations. 2) Set-aside of marginal yield sites under agricultural use: Setting-aside of arable land is based on the hypothesis that the selection of arable land to be set-aside depends on the potential yield efficiency of the locations. Within this submodel all fields under agricultural use are valued to that effect and the ones with the least productive efficiency are selected as set-aside locations. In case of homogeneous area qualities the set-aside locations are selected randomly. 3) Establishment of protected areas in waterside and ripearian areas: This submodel takes into consideration that the protection of sensitive areas along the river courses may have positive consequences for the efficiency of the landscape. Therefore this submodel establishes protection zones on waterside and ripearian sites under currently agricultural use, that might be of value for nature conservation. The size of the protection area depends on the morphology of the surrounding landscape. The three submodels were validated with respect to the implied hypotheses by the help of many different approaches. The result of this intensive analysis shows a satisfying suitability for each of the submodels. The simulation of land-use changes was carried out for three mesoscale river catchments with an area between 100 and 500 km². Special attention was paid to the fact that these areas should be markingly different in their land-use: One study area is predominantly under intensive agricultural use, one is densely populated and the third one is covered by forest in large parts of the area. With regard to their relevance to the onhand question from existing land-use trends scenarios were derived for the prognosed settlement area for the year 2010, for the possible consequences of the EU-wide agreement of Agenda 2000 and for the amending federal conservation law dating to the year 2001, which enhances the enlargement of protected areas. Each scenario was applied to the three study areas utilizing the model luck. For the expansion of the settlement areas in all three study areas realistic land-use patterns were generated. Limitations arose only in the context of the search for marginal yield fields. Here, the random distribution of areas to be set-aside under homogeneous conditions led to unrealistic results. The quality of the establishment of protected areas in waterside and ripearian areas is substantially bound to current land-use and the morphology of the area. The best results for this submodel are achieved if waterside and ripearian areas are mainly arable land and if the river has lowered its course into the morphology. The hydrological consequences are described exemplarily for each land-use trend with a historical flood event. The interpretation of the hydrographs does not allow global statements about the influence of land-use. The study demonstrates the significance of land-use pattern for the natural processes in the landscape and underlines the necessity of spatially explicit modelling for landscape ecological questions at the mesoscale.

  16. Development of a low-level radon reference chamber; Entwicklung einer Low-Level-Radon-Referenzkammer

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Linzmaier, Diana

    2013-01-04

    The naturally occurring, radioactive noble gas radon-222 exists worldwide in different activity concentrations in the air. During the decay of radon-222, decay products are generated which are electrically charged and attach to aerosols in the air. Together with the aerosols, the radon is inhaled and exhaled by humans. While the radon is nearly completely exhaled, ca. 20 % of the inhaled aerosols remain in the lungs in one breath cycle. Due to ionizing radiation, in a chain of events, lung cancer might occur. Consequently, radon and its decay products are according to the current findings the second leading cause of lung cancer. At the workplace and in the home measurements of radon activity concentration are performed to determine the radiation exposition of humans. All measurement devices for the determination of radon activity concentration are calibrated above 1000 Bq/m{sup 3}, even though the mean value of the present investigation in Germany shows only 50 Bq/m{sup 3}. For the calibration of measurement devices in the range below 1000 Bq/m{sup 3} over a long time period, the generation of a stable reference atmosphere is presented in this work. Due to a long term calibration (t>5 days) of the measurement devices, smaller uncertainties result for the calibration factor. For the calibration procedure, a so-called low-level radon reference chamber was set up and started operation. The generation of a stable reference atmosphere is effected by means of emanation sources which consist of a radium-226 activity standard. On the basis of {gamma}-spectrometry, the effective emanation coefficient ofthe emanation sources is determined. The traceability of the activity concentration in the reference volume is realized via the activity ofthe radium-226, the emanation coefficient and the volume. With the emanation sources produced, stable reference atmospheres within the range of 150 Bq/m{sup 3} to 1900 Bq/m{sup 3} are achieved. For the realization, maintenance and dissemination of the unit Bq/m{sup 3}, a large volume transfer standard was developed. The transfer standard consists of a multiwire im pulse ionisation chamber as weil as the respective developed electronic measuring equipment and the corresponding software. With the multiwire impulse ionisation chamber, {alpha}-particles in dependency of the energy are detected. Out of the measured {alpha}-energy spectra an activity concentration is determined. The calibration of the multiwire impulse ionisation chamber is performed via a primary standard. The multiwire impulse ionisation chamber is now available as a secondary standard and is used for the calibration of commercial measurement devices. At one of the first calibrations of a commercial device a relative uncertainty of 3.5 % for k=2 for the calibration factor at 200 Bq/m{sup 3} has been achieved.

    The small hydroelectric power station of Rupboden in the Oberfranken district was reactivated after having been decommissioned for 30 years. This new low pressure plant consists of an open-flume turbine with an adjustable diffusor and a firm rotor disk (propeller) with a vertical rod. A large range of operation at a constant height of fall is ensured by a variable revolution number. The profiles of the adjustable diffusor and rotor disk and the design of the draft tube were optimized using numerical flow calculation. First operating experience is very positive. The turbine runs extremely smoothly over the entire range. (orig.) [Deutsch] Das Kleinwasserkraftwerk Rupboden in Oberfanken wurde nach 30 Jahren Stillstand reaktiviert.

    After the events at the Japanese nuclear power plant of Fukushima Daiichi, the German federal government decided that Germany will give up electricity generation from nuclear power within a decade. The last reactor will be disconnected from the power grid in 2022. Helping to make this opt-out as safe as possible is one of the duties of the Helmholtz Association with its Nuclear Safety Research Program within the Energy Research Area. Also the demolition of nuclear power plants and the repository problem will keep society, and thus also research, busy for a number of decades to come. Giving up electricity production from nuclear power thus must not mean giving up the required nuclear technology competences. In the fields of reactor safety, demolition, final storage, radiation protection, and crisis management, in critical support of international developments, and for competent evaluation of nuclear facilities around Germany, these competences will be in demand far beyond the German opt-out. This is the reason why the final report by the Ethics Committee on 'Safe Energy Supply' emphasizes the importance of nuclear technology research. Close cooperation on national, European and international levels is indispensable in this effort. Also nuclear safety research in the Helmholtz Association is aligned with the challenges posed by the opt-out of the use of nuclear power. It is important that the high competences in the areas of plant safety and demolition, handling of radioactive waste, and safe final storage as well as radiation protection be preserved. The Nuclear Safety Research Program within the Energy Research Area of the Helmholtz Association therefore will continue studying scientific and technical aspects of the safety of nuclear reactors and the safety of nuclear waste management. These research activities are provident research conducted for society and must be preserved for a long period of time. The work is closely harmonized with the activities of the partners in the Nuclear Competence Association. As of January 2011, the Dresden-Rossendorf Helmholtz Center (HZDR), with its 2 Institutes of Safety Research and for Radiochemistry, is an integral part of the Nuclear Safety Research Program within the Energy Research Area. Both institutes work on topics of safety research for nuclear reactors and safety research for nuclear waste management. In this way, the 2 institutes represent very welcome added value as well as a supplement to the Nuclear Safety Research Program. (orig.)

    The present technology assessment study examines the effects of three technology scenarios on future energy consumption and the energy-related emissions by industrial manufacturing in Switzerland. The three paths of development (Trend, High-Tech, Alternative) can be represented as follows: After a reduction until 2015, the Trend development entails a slight increase in consumption of energy. Until then consumption is some 10 percent lower in both the High-Tech and the Alternative Scenarios. Consumption of electricity increases in all scenarios, the proportion is highest in 20 year's time under the High-Tech scenario. SO{sub 2} and CO{sub 2} emissions decrease in all scenarios until 2000 and then level out at a low level. The emissions are lowest in the High-Tech scenario. In contrast the NO{sub x} and the VOC emissions diminish until 2000 and then rise again continuously. At this juncture important bases are still not yet available for a definitive evaluation with respect to the sustainable development. Sustainability objectives are currently being compiled for Switzerland in the wake of the Berlin Climate Conference and the Rio Conference. In the political lobbies the Green factions are making demands, such as those currently under discussion internationally (e.g. CO{sub 2} reductions on a scale of some 80 percent by 2050), whereas conservative and industrial circle representatives support the objective of sustainable development but reject a quantification of objectives. The official objectives of the Swiss Energy 2000 programme can be achieved with all scenarios. With the High-Tech and Alternative scenarios, concepts of a reduction in CO{sub 2} by 20 percent by 2015 (as currently under discussion in Switzerland), are realistic. However, further energy-relevant efficiency potentials in industrial production can be activated by energy-policy motivated measures. More extensive objectives, such as e.g. a CO{sub 2} reduction of 50 percent, are hardly attainable, even in the long-term, without sufficiency considerations in industrial production. The degree of acceptance of measures diminishes on the conservative and business sides with increasing interventionism whereas the Green lobby would put up with direct guidance measures and, above all, negative effects on the Swiss labour market.

    In the case of Indonesia 3 goals in particular were linked to the industrial process: to improve the balance of payments, to reduce unemployment and to develop remote regions. Thus, development plans and official development policy have not adopted merely one strategic approach to industrialization, but have combined several: export diversification, promition of labour-intensive, small-scale and large-scale enterprises, and industrial production linked to basic needs. In 1991 the KfW gave financial support to the following projects: transformer plant and Suralaya, railway investment programme, electricity transmission system Krian-Paiton, supply of 3 ferries, staff development fund III.

    In the FAIR project (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) at the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research GmbH, high intensity heavy ion beams will be provided by the superconducting synchrotron SIS100. Medium charge state ions will be used instead of high charge state ions. The medium charge state ions on the one hand shift the space charge limit towards higher intensities and, on the other hand, avoid intensity losses in stripper stages. The most demanding challenges in the operation with medium charge state heavy ions are beam losses due to charge exchange in collisions with residual gas molecules. Further ionized ions are separated from the circulating beam and get lost on the chamber wall, while releasing a big amount of gas via ion stimulated desorption. The local pressure rise increases the probability for further charge exchange of beam ions, and a self-amplification can evolve. This process may result in a complete beam loss. One way to damp this amplification is given by the installation o...

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the Swedish system of higher education and research with respect to the allocation of research resources. The main findings are a considerable expansion of the system since the post war era as well as a strong trend towards decentralization during the last decades. The earlier visible hand of close governance has left power to an invisible hand of market governance. Also, methods of New Public Management have been introduced. Despite an increasing tendency for research evaluations in Sweden the link to funding has so far been weak, however. Even if resources for research to an increasing extent are allocated through short-term project grants rather than long-term block grants a clear tendency towards funding of fewer and larger programmes rather than many small projects can be observed.

    SPICE and CADENCE based tools for designing, simulating and optimizing SFQ and RSFQ circuits have been developed as well as a standard cell library corresponding to the fabrication technology established at the IEGI. A 12 bit flux shuttle shift register using Nb/Al Josephson junctions with a new write and readout gate has been fabricated and tested successfully; the power dissipation is 9 nW/bit/GHz. A pseudo random pulse generator was developed correspondingly. Simulations of RSFQ toggle flipflops during a large number of clock cycles demonstrated that the digital performance of counters is limited to clock frequencies below 100 GHz by dynamic effects, especially of parasitic inductances. Therefore dc measurements based on the voltage-frequency Josephson relationship must be followed by real time measurements of single SFQ word pulses. A four stage Nb based RSFQ counter in a coplanar waveguide test jig was tested up to a frequency of 2 GHz, limited by the available 32 bit pattern generator and the bandwith of the sampling oscilloscope, yielding bit error rates of about 10{sup -12}. Using YBCO technology, a 4 bit SFQ shift register (T=40 K) as well as miniaturized coplanar microwave devices for satellite and communication applications at 10 GHz (T=77 K) have been designed and fabricated. A 4 bit instantaneous real time frequency meter (IFM) and a microwave filter with a 3-dB bandwidth of only 1.8% have been mounted on the cold head of a split-cycle Stirling cooler (AEG, 1.5 W rate at 80 K) and tested successfully. Hybrid devices, e.g. amplifiers and oscillators, combining active semiconductor components and low loss coplanar YBCO transmission lines operated at 77 K seem very promising. (orig.) [Deutsch] Werkzeuge der Auslegung, Simulation und Optimierung von SFQ- und RSFQ-Schaltungen auf der Basis von SPICE und CADENCE wurden am IEGI entwickelt und eingesetzt. Eine auf die Technologien des Instituts zugeschnittene Bibliothek von Zellen ist vorhanden. Mit der bewaehrten Niob-Technologie wurde ein 12 bit SFQ-Schieberegister mit einer Schreib- und Leseschaltung und mit extrem kleiner Verlustleistung von 9 nW/bit/GHz hergestellt und impulsmaessig vermessen. Nach dem gleichen Prinzip wurde ein Zufallsimpulsgenerator ausgelegt. Die Simulation von RSFQ-Toggle-Flipflops mit einer grossen Zahl von Eingangsimpulsen zeigte, dass dynamische Effekte besonders durch Streuinduktivitaeten den digitalen Zaehlerbetrieb auf Taktfrequenzen unter 100 GHz begrenzen koennen, obwohl Gleichspannungsmessungen einen einwandfreien Betrieb bei hoeheren Frequenzen erwarten lassen. Daher sind Echtzeitmessungen der einzelnen SFQ-Impulse eines Wortes notwendig. Echtzeitmessungen mit einem Abtastoszillographen an einem 4-stufigen RSFQ-Zaehler der Niob-Technologie mit entsprechend breitbandiger Leitungszufuehrung ergaben bis zur Grenzfrequenz eines vorhandenen 32 bit Wortgenerators bei 2 GHz Bitfehlerraten um 10{sup -12}. Mit der YBCO-Technologie wurden ein 4 bit SFQ-Schieberegister fuer 40 K und miniaturisierte koplanare Mikrowellenschaltungen fuer die Satelliten- und Kommunikationstechnik um 10 GHz fuer 77 K ausgelegt und implementiert. Ein 4 bit Echtzeitfrequenzmesser und ein Filter mit einer 3 dB-Bandbreite von nur 1,8% wurden im IEGI erfolgreich auf dem Kaltkopf eines AEG-Kleinkuehlers ausgemessen. Hybride Schaltungen, z.B. Verstaerker und Oszillatoren, mit aktiven Halbleiterbauelementen und koplanaren YBCO-Verbindungen mit geringen Verlusten koennen bei 77 KJ interessante Eigenschaften besitzen. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Das Innovationsmanagement dient der aktiven Gestaltung von Wandlungsprozessen, welche es der Bibliothek ermöglichen, rasch auf das sich schnell verändernde Bibliotheksumfeld zu reagieren. Innovativ sein heisst folglich auch, sich ständig zu verändern. Somit sollen sich auch im Innovationsmanagement Prozesse, Strukturen und Schwerpunkte stetig wandeln können und daher sollten sie laufend evaluiert werden. Aus diesem Grund wurde zu Beginn des Innovationsmanagements an der Universitätsbibliothek Bern beschlossen, nach zwei Jahren eine erste Evaluation durchzuführen, um die Prozesse und Kernaufgaben der aktuellen Situation anpassen zu können. Die Ergebnisse zeigten, dass eine stärkere Fokussierung auf strategische Handlungsschwerpunkte und die Förderung der internen Innovationskultur notwendig sind. Als neuen Schwerpunkt setzt die UB Bern nun auf die Implementierung einer systematischen Kundenforschung. Mögliche weitere Erfolgsfaktoren für ein gelingendes Innovationsmanagement sind die enge Verknüpfung zum Projektmanagement und die Einführung eines Produktmanagements. Innovation Management is actively shaping processes which will enable libraries to respond to rapidly changing environments. Being innovative means, therefore, being able to adapt to change and disruption. Processes, structures and focuses in innovation management are also subjected to change and, as a consequence, should be constantly evaluated. For this reason, at the beginning of the implementation of innovation management at University Library Bern the decision had been taken to perform an evaluation after 2 years in order to adjust the processes and core functions to the current situation. The results highlighted that both a stronger focus on strategic priorities and the promotion of internal culture of innovation are necessary. For this purpose, UB Bern focuses on the implementation of a systematic customer research. Other possible factors for successful innovation management include close links to project management as well as the introduction of product management. La gestion de l’innovation a pour but le développement actif de processus de transformation permettant à une bibliothèque de réagir rapidement aux changements dynamiques de son environnement. Être innovant signifie donc évoluer en permanence, ce qui implique le renouvellement et l’évaluation continus des processus, des structures et des priorités. Pour cette raison, lors de la mise en place d’une gestion de l’innovation à la Bibliothèque universitaire de Berne, la décision a été prise d’effectuer une évaluation après deux ans afin d’ajuster les processus et les missions principales à la situation actuelle. Les résultats ont démontré la nécessité de se concentrer sur des priorités stratégiques et d’encourager une culture interne de l’innovation. Dans ce contexte, une nouvelle priorité a été donnée au développement d’une gestion systématique de la clientèle. Un contact étroit avec la gestion de projets et la mise en place d’une gestion des produits sont également considérés comme des mesures favorisant une gestion réussie de l’innovation.

    When the ground water rose in the marginal batter of an opencast mine damage occurred. This was caused by the processes of internal erosion and suffusion in fine sand layers of slight thickness and by the disintegration of the overlying strata due to the formation of sinkholes. Effective safety measures involved lowering the ground-water level in the zone immediately in front of the area in question and installing an auxiliary filter unit at the marginal batter. (orig.).

    A collaborative project funded by the BMBF in the framework of the R and D program ''Energie 2020+'' by 4 Universities, 2 Research Centres and ANSYS was coordinated by Helmholtz- Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR). The present report describes the contributions of HZDR done from September 2009 to January 2013. The project was directed towards the development and validation of CFD models of boiling processes in PWR in the range from subcooled nucleate boiling up to the critical heat flux. The report describes the developed and used models. Main achievements were a comprehensive study of the boiling process itself and a better description of the interfacial area by coupling of wall boiling with a population balance model. The model extensions are validated and the present capabilities of CFD for wall boiling are investigated. By means of rod bundle experiments was shown that the measured cross sectional averaged values can be reproduced well with a single set of calibrated model parameters for different tests cases. For the reproduction of patterns of void distribution cross sections attention has to be focussed on the modelling of turbulence in the narrow channel. The experimental work was focussed on the investigation of the flow in a rod bundle. Using a rod bundle test rig the turbulent single phase flow field (PIV) and the average gas volume fraction (gamma densitometry) are measured. The timely and spatial resolved gas fraction was measured applying the ''High speed x-ray tomography'', developed in Rossendorf.

    Currently, all potential must be tapped in order to reach the increasingly tighter CO{sub 2} limits for vehicles. From the variety of possible options for reducing fuel consumption, the contribution of improved heat management should not be ignored since increased friction during warm-up results in greater fuel consumption. Engine warm-up models that calculate thermal behavior and fuel consumption are a relatively inexpensive alternative to empirical measures. In order to achieve satisfactory simulation results, the exact modeling of thermal behavior as well as friction conditions is necessary. This paper identifies the demands placed on the individual submodels based on the requirements for precision that thermal warm-up models must meet. Before treating the friction model it will explain the development of the heat input model in detail. In addition, it presents the test program needed to establish and validate the simulation model with the required measurement accuracy. (orig.)

    The separately excited synchronous machine (SSM) has outgrown the status of an expensive high-tech gimmick for technology enthusiasts. Brose-SEW has evaluated the basic concept of this type of E-machine with inductive rotary transmitter and the development chain required for the realisation of specific aggregates to the extent that machine development programs can already be reliably predicted and implemented today. Ongoing development projects are used for the further development of future large-series productions that can be regarded as market ready from today's point of view in terms of costs. The maintenance-free and wear-free SSM clearly outdistances all of the alternatives with respect to functional safety and control behaviour. (orig.)

    The increase in road safety in Germany could for example be indicated by the reducing number of seriously injured and killed people (/6/) in spite of increasing number of cars and total amount of kilometres. The selective measures therefore are based on four points: Improvement of active and passive security, direct and indirect psychological measures. While developing systems, which assist drivers on the guidance level, the question of safety of these measures more and more occurs. This led to the development of software, which contains a so called normative driver model, and compares actual driving data with this model. Thereby, situations can be identified, which deviate from the situational normative model, and consequently could be classified as critical. The practical application to driving data with active assistance systems with regulation in longitudinal and lateral direction showed significant improvement of driving safety in comparison to data without system usage.

    This work focuses on the development and the optimization of the metal wrap through (MWT) solar cell. Primary goal of this work has been the development of an appropriate process flow for MWT solar cells, which generates only insignificant extra costs compared to the conventional process flow, however, achieves a significant efficiency increase for MWT cells compared to conventionally processed cells. The latter was one of the main challenges of this work. For this purpose MWT solar cells have been studied and characterized in detail. Loss mechanisms have been detected and improvements evaluated as well as transferred to the cell process. Furthermore, the assembling process for MWT solar cells in the module has been optimized focusing on less series resistance losses. A comparison with the conventional module assembling process is presented. A process flow similar to the one for the conventional process has been developed for MWT solar cells. Merely two additional laser process steps for hole drilling and rear contact isolation as well as one screen printing step for the through connection turn out to be necessary. It is shown that the additional screen printing process can be omitted without significant efficiency losses, if the through connection and solder pad metallization is done in a single process step. Furthermore, a fast and reliable through connection process has been developed and characterized in detail. Moreover, a gauge mounting block for MWT solar cells has been constructed, analyzed and calibrated for current-voltage-characteristic measurements. With multi crystalline MWT silicon solar cells an efficiency gain up to 0.5% absolute has been achieved compared to conventionally processed solar cells - thereby reaching a maximum cell efficiency of more than 16.7%. Due to a novel MWT module technology developed in this work the efficiency compared to the conventional technology could be improved further by another 0.3% absolute. The primary loss mechanisms of the MWT solar cell could be evaluated. These are on the one hand recombination losses in the region of the through connection and the rear n-contact and on the other hand lateral resistance losses of the base - again in the rear n-contact region. Furthermore, recombination losses due to a non optimum rear passivation of the solder pad region play a decisive role. The influence of the loss mechanisms on the efficiency has been evaluated for the different loss mechanisms and a reduction of the losses has been reached.

    In past years, energy stores based on double-layer capacitors have been increasingly tested and used on rolling stock. The reasons for using energy stores are the recuperation of the braking work, the reduction of emissions related therewith, and the possibility of doing without overhead line installations in sensitive areas. In order to be able to assess the efficiency of such a system, it is necessary to estimate its expected service life, which is the subject matter of this paper. Examined is the dynamic influence of temperature and cell voltage on the ageing process. (orig.)

In an exploratory study Steinert et al. (2015 showed that learners perceive these new knowledge exchange partners even without explicit instructions. The present study systematizes the approaches of this study and examines whether there are differences in the perception of cognitive and social awareness information as well as the strength respectively proximity of the exchange partners’ interrelations. Hence, based on the current state of research, an awareness taxonomy for formal learning settings was theoretically derived and empirically tested.

    The newly developed solar-assisted drying plant permitted to reduce drying time from between 30 and 40 days to between 18 and 22 days, and to increase the amount filled in from approximately 27 to 67 kilogrammes per square metre. Leaf loss during drying was cut down from between 4 and 6 per cent as previously to about 0.2 per cent. Specific energy demand was by a factor of 12 lower than the demand of conventional driers: the actual demand was 4.8 MJ per kilogramme of tobacco as compared to 58 MJ per kilogramme previously. Taking into account capital, labour, energy and repair costs, a rise in proceeds from solar-dried tobacco of about US $ 1.50 per kilogramme, and the cost involved by higher leaf loss using the conventional technique, drying cost using the solar-assisted method was US $ 2.16 per kilogramme of tobacco. For the conventional method, drying cost was US $ 4.74 per kilogramme. Accordingly, the amortization period of the solar-assisted plant is only two to three years. The solar-assisted method would only cease to be economical if investment costs were increased by 64 per cent, if the interest rate went up to 44 per cent or if the costs arising from leaf loss dropped to US $ 0.8. (orig./HW) [Deutsch] Durch den Einsatz der neu entwickelten solargestuetzten Trocknungsanlage konnte die Trocknungsdauer von bislang 30 bis 40 auf 18 bis 22 Tage reduziert und die Fuellmenge von ca. 27 auf 67 kg/m{sup 2} gesteigert werden. Die Blattverluste waehrend der Trocknung wurden von bislang 4 bis 6% auf ca. 0,2% gesenkt. Der spezifische Energiebedarf war mit 4,8 gegenueber 58 MJ/kg Tabak um den Faktor 12 geringer als der Bedarf konventionller Trockner. Unter Beruecksichtigung von Kapital-, Arbeits-, Energie- und Reparaturkosten, des im Mittel um 1,5 US Dollar/kg hoeheren Stueckerloeses solargetrockneten Tabaks, sowie der Kosten aufgrund der hoeheren Blattverluste beim konventionellen Verfahren, betrugen die Trocknungsstueckkosten des solargestuetzten Verfahrens 2,16 US Dollar pro kg Tabak. Die Stueckkosten des konventionellen Verfahrens betrugen 4,74 US Dollar/kg. Dementsprechend betraegt die Amortisationsdauer der Solaranlage lediglich 2 bis 3 Jahre. Erst bei einer Steigerung der Investitionskosten um 64%, einer Erhoehung der Zinsen auf 44% oder einer Verringerung der Nutzungskosten auf 0,8 US Dollar/kg ist das solargestuetzte Verfahren nicht mehr wirtschaftlich.

    Mobility is a key element in our society and often synonymous with traffic. It is desirable to secure a clean and diversified energy supply, to design a more sustainable transport structure and to minimize the burden on people and environment. This requires an updating of the fuel strategy 2004 and its progress toward a comprehensive mobility strategy and fuel strategy. Under this aspect, the contribution under consideration presents a preliminary investigation of the development of a mobility strategy and fuel strategy in Germany. Over the past ten years, the transport sector has reduced its energy consumption only slightly. The targets for the energy reduction now are -10 % up to 2020 and -40 % up to 2050. The transport sector challenges a significant contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In order to advance the necessary energy political as well as climate political changes the Federal Government wants to develop a comprehensive mobility strategy and fuel strategy. For this purpose, the contribution under consideration provides nine concrete recommendations for action for this.

    Boehnel, Michael

    2012-03-28

    This thesis presents the development and evaluation of a new personal dosemeter, based on the technology of energy-resolving pixelated photon-counting X-ray detectors. The basis of the development is a detailed study of the Timepix detector. The main focus is on the investigation of the energy resolving properties of the Timepix detector in counting mode and in the spectroscopic time-over-threshold mode. The approach for the production of fluorescence radiation for the detector calibration, necessary for the experiments, is presented. By using Monte Carlo simulations the spectral distribution of the resulting fluorescence spectra in dependence on the fluorescence material, the used primary X-ray radiation and the arrangement of the laboratory setup is discussed. Besides the actual fluorescence lines, the simulated calibration spectra also contain the background of scattered primary X-ray photons and fluorescence radiation contributions from parts of the experimental setup. Furthermore, the simulated spectra exhibit the corrected intensity conditions of the fluorescence emissions of the K- and L-shell. These calibration spectra permit a better match of measurements and simulations than the simplified fluorescence spectra used so far. For the detector calibration in counting mode, accelerated energy calibration methods are introduced. From measuring energy deposition spectra, the energy resolution of single pixels and the energy resolution of the complete detector could be determined by the application of a global energy calibration. It was shown that the influence of the threshold dispersion broadens the energy resolution of the single pixels, depending on the given energy deposition. The resulting energy resolution of the whole pixel matrix is thereby reduced. The negative effect of the threshold dispersion can be eliminated by the application of a single-pixel calibration. The relative energy resolution of the Timepix detector operated in the counting mode can thus be improved between 5% and 50% in the investigated photon energy interval of 9 keV to 60 keV. The energy resolution of the Timepix ASIC in the spectroscopic time-over-threshold mode is studied in detail with the help of the test pulse functionality, and the influence of different detector configurations is presented. The detector counting artifacts in the energy deposition spectra, arising in the time-over-threshold mode, are described using examples. A concluding discussion supplies a comparison of the energy resolving characteristics of the two operating modes of the Timepix detector. The results of the experiments concerning the characterisation of the Timepix detector are used for the extension of an existing Monte Carlo simulation. The modelling of the counting mode and the new implementation of the time-over-threshold mode in the simulation are presented. The main focus is the correct description of the energy deposition spectra in the simulation. A comparison of measurements and simulation results show a good agreement for the selected approach to modelling the Timepix detector. One application for the presented X-ray detectors is dosimetry. In this work a procedure is presented for determining the personal dose equivalent from the data of energy resolving pixelated X-ray detectors. The quality of the dose reconstruction obtained by simulations and experiments are demonstrated by utilizing a Timepix detector. For a field use in a dosemeter, the Timepix detector is not suitable due to its limitations. The need for the development of a new detector arises, a detector particularly adapted to the requirements of personal dosimetry. The outline of the development of the Dosepix detector is given and its functional principles are explained. The dosemeter for the determination of the personal dose equivalent H{sub p}(10) consists of three individual Dosepix detectors, with two of the units covered by converter materials (tin and aluminum). Based on simulations, the dose reconstruction is studied with respect to its dependence on the photon energy, direction of the photon irradiation and dose rate. The achieved response R for the reconstruction of the personal dose equivalent H{sub p}(10) in the photon energy range of 15 keV to 2 MeV and an angular irradiation of ±60 is 0.85 ≤ R ≤ 1.4. This response R stays very well within the given specifications of -29 % and +67 %. A comparison of the Dosepix dosemeter with existing personal dosemeters promises a substantial improvement of the dose reconstruction quality.

  3. Development of a metallic magnetic calorimeter for high resolution spectroscopy; Entwicklung eines metallischen magnetischen Kalorimeters fuer die hochaufloesende Roentgenspektroskopie

    In this thesis the development of a metallic magnetic calorimeter for high resolution detection of single x-ray quanta is described. The detector consists of an X-ray absorber and a paramagnetic temperature sensor. The raise in temperature of the paramagnetic sensor due to the absorption of a single X-ray is measured by the change in magnetization of the sensor using a low-noise SQUID magnetometer. The thermodynamic properties of the detector can be described by a theoretical model based on a mean field approximation. This allows for an optimization of the detector design with respect to signal size. The maximal archivable energy resolution is limited by thermodynamic energy fluctuations between absorber, heat bath and thermometer. An interesting field of application for a metallic magnetic calorimeter is X-ray astronomy and the investigation of X-ray emitting objects. Through high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy it is possible to obtain information about physical processes of even far distant objects. The magnetic calorimeter that was developed in this thesis has a metallic absorber with a quantum efficiency of 98% at 6 keV. The energy resolution of the magnetic calorimeter is EFWHM=2.7 eV at 5.9 keV. The deviation of the detector response from a linear behavior of the detector is only 0.8% at 5.9 keV. (orig.)

    Today's raising demand for energy relies to a degree of 85% on the consumption of fossil fuels. A change to regenerative forms of energy is an important and inevitable step in order to face the challenges of climate change and fading natural resources. Photovoltaic's (PV) plays a special role within the various forms of renewable energy since it converts sunlight, our most important and virtually endless energy source, directly into electricity. However, currently available PV-systems are still very expensive and, in combination with their relatively low performance, can hardly or cannot compete with conventional sources of energy from an economical point of view. One possibility to overcome this problem is the combination of highly efficient multi junction solar cells with cost-efficient concentrator optics that focus the incident sunlight to a small spot. The material system (GaIn)(NAs) is envisioned to play an important role in a future generation of multi junction solar cells for concentrator applications being a further development of existing device concepts. However, especially the carrier diffusion lengths in (GaIn)(NAs)-based solar cell layers are currently to low for the fabrication of highly efficient PV-structures. In this work, two novel techniques for the characterization of solar cells are developed and evaluated by experiments on test structures and numerical simulations. Both are based on the measurement of laser-induced currents. Spatially-resolved photocurrent spectroscopy (SRPS) allows a spatially-resolved determination of locally induced photocurrents at a fixed bias voltage while spatially-resolved IV-characteristics (SRIV) are measurements of local I-V-characteristics at a certain position. It is found that SRPS and SRIV allow for a reliable and meaningful characterization of solar cell prototypes with a high spatial resolution. Especially the local p-n-parameters of the sample become accessible. These are the short circuit current, the saturation current, the ideality factor and the excitation-induced shunt resistance. Subsequently, SRPS and SRIV served as characterization techniques for the evaluation of annealing experiments on processed (GaIn)(NAs) solar cell layers for concentrator applications. The goal of these experiments was to improve the material quality of such structures by treating them with high electrical currents and strong lasers pulses. Such enhanced devices could be used in a future generation of PV-systems leading to a significantly increased efficiency. Concerning this some first achievements were made. The use of high electrical currents led to a significant increase of the short circuit current, especially if applied as reverse bias. However, this also caused a reduction of the shunt resistance which eventually dropped down to a few ohms. The application of intensive laser radiation led under certain conditions to a considerable increase of the carrier lifetime and photoluminescence but no improvement of the electrical properties of the devices could be found. A second project dealt with the effect of carrier-depletion on the evaluation of data obtained by the variable stripe length method which is a technique for measuring the optical gain of potential laser materials. Numerical simulations and accompanying experiments on a GaAs-quantum well structure showed that this approach is only valid within a small parameter range. Outside this range an unavoidable carrier depletion caused by stimulated emission processes leads to significant errors in the obtained results. The determination of the corresponding borders is very complicated and requires a detailed knowledge of the sample properties. As the variable stripe length method is typically used to get a first insight into the properties of a novel sample such knowledge is generally missing. Therefore the reliability of experimental results obtained by this technique is doubtful.

    Full Text Available Dieser Beitrag skizziert ein Konzept zur Sprachstandsermittlung, das aufbauend auf Ergebnissen der gebrauchsbasierten Spracherwerbsforschung die sprachlichen Fähigkeiten von Vorschulkindern in quasi-natürlichen Gesprächssituationen misst. Den Maßstab bilden dabei die altersgemäßen Deutschkompetenzen monolingualer und bilingualer Kinder im Vorschulalter. Mit dem neuen Verfahren soll eine akkurate Bewertung der kommunikativen Kompetenzen der Kinder am Übergang zur Schule erfolgen, die eine systematische Benachteiligung mehrsprachig aufwachsender Kinder aufgrund von Vergleichen mit zielsprachlichen Erwachsenennormen vermeidet. Das neuartige Erhebungsverfahren wird dabei in Form einer digitalen Spielumgebung (App entwickelt, die eine Umsetzung der Prinzipien des handlungsorientierten Sprachenlernens erlaubt. This paper presents the implementation of a new concept of first and second language assessment for pre-school children between four and six years. The concept is theoretically grounded in usage-based linguistics. It assesses language in authentic communicative settings in a game based app. The settings provide the children with incentives to engage in communication. As a result, the assessment tool does not evaluate formal aspects of language. Instead it relies on functional categories for evaluation. Norms for evaluations are derived from longitudinal corpus studies of authentic child language production. The goal of the new approach is to generate an accurate and fair assessments of the children’s communicative capacities. Pilot studies indicate that children with L2 German appear to be more advanced than shown by traditional form-based assessment methods.

  11. Development and standard of batter slope monitoring by means of simple telemetering. Entwicklung und Stand von Boeschungsbeobachtungen mittels einfacher Distanzmessungen

    Duddek, H

    1990-11-01

    In the search for mainly automatic measuring techniques that furnish real-time areal data on deformations in marginal batters of opencast workings, it was decided inter alia to adopt the technique of direct linear measurement across the workings at the brown coal opencast mines in the Rhineland. The present paper describes the development of this technique from the use of instruments which initially were operated manually to the introduction of automatic measuring stations. The successful application of this technique in all the opencast workings in the Rhineland brown coal mining area is discussed. Since the accuracy obtained in electro-optical telemetering depends to a large extent on the meteorological conditions, it can hardly be increased with the instruments at present available. Hence, it is essential that two-colour telemeters which are perfected for field-work and are not refraction-prone should be developed. (orig.).

  12. Development and testing of passive autocatalytic recombiners cooled by heat pipes; Entwicklung und Erprobung mittels Heatpipe gekuehlter katalytischer Rekombinatoren

    2012-11-26

    A severe accident in a nuclear power plant (NPP) can lead to core damage in conjunction with the release of large amounts of hydrogen. As hydrogen mitigation measure, passive autocatalytic recombiners (PARs) are used in today's pressurized water reactors. PARs recombine hydrogen and oxygen contained in the air to steam. The heat from this exothermic reaction causes the catalyst and its surroundings to heat up. If parts of the PAR heat up above the ignition temperature of the gas mixture, a spontaneous deflagration or detonation can occur. The aim of this work is the prevention of such high temperatures by means of passive cooling of the catalyst with heat pipes. Heat pipes are completely passive heat exchanger with a very high effective thermal conductivity. For a deeper understanding of the reaction kinetics at lower temperatures, single catalytic coated heat pipes are studied in a flow reactor. The development of a modular small-scale PAR model is then based on a test series with cooled catalyst sheets. Finally, the PAR model is tested inside a pressure vessel under boundary conditions similar to a real NPP. The experiments show, that the temperatures of the cooled catalytic sheets stay significantly below the temperature of the uncooled sheets and below the ignition temperature of the gas mixture under any set boundary conditions, although no significant reduction of the conversion efficiency can be observed. As a last point, a mathematical model of the reaction kinetics of the recombination process as well as a model of the fluid dynamic and thermohydraulic processes in a heat pipe are developed with the data obtained from the experiments.

  14. Development and application of cryogenic radiometry with hard X-rays; Entwicklung und Anwendung der Kryoradiometrie mit harter Roentgenstrahlung

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gerlach, Martin

    2008-06-06

    To establish cryogenic radiometry with hard X-ray radiation for photon energies of up to 60 keV, a novel type of cavity absorber had to be developed for the cryogenic radiometer SYRES I, which is deployed by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) as primary standard detector at the electron storage ring BESSY II. This new type of cavity absorber allows for the complete absorption of hard X-ray radiation in combination with an appropriate sensitivity and an adequate time constant for the measurement of synchrotron radiation at BESSY II. As the process of fabrication of different types of absorbers is very time-consuming, the interaction of hard X-ray radiation with different absorber materials and geometries was studied intensively by using the Monte Carlo simulation code Geant4. The accuracy of the simulations was verified comparing them to scattering experiments performed at a wavelength shifter beamline at BESSY II with a calibrated energy dispersive detector. It was shown that Geant4 describes the photo-effect, including fluorescence as well as Compton- and Rayleigh scattering, with high accuracy. The simulations and experiments resulted in a cavity absorber with a gold base 550 {mu}m in thickness and a cylindrical shell made of copper 90 {mu}m in thickness to reduce losses caused by fluorescence and scattered radiation. Monochromatized synchrotron radiation of high spectral purity was then used to calibrate semiconductor photodiodes, which can be used as compact and inexpensive secondary standard detectors, against a cryogenic radiometer, covering the entire photon energy range of three beamlines from 50 eV to 60 keV with relative uncertainties of less than 0.5 %. Furthermore the spatial homogeneity of the spectral responsivity, the transmittance and the linearity of the photodiodes was investigated. Through a direct comparison of the free-air ionization chamber PK100, a primary detector standard of PTB used in dosimetry, and the cryogenic radiometer SYRES I the values of {mu}{sub en}/{rho} for photons in air were determined for the first time experimentally in the hard X-ray range from 10 keV to 60 keV with relative uncertainties of less than 1 %.

    The paper looks into the opportunities for and limitations of using oligonucleotide probes for in-situ hybridisation in anaerobic systems. As is demonstrated, a large part of the populations can be detected using this method and different physiological groups like sulfate reducers and methanogens can be verified with a high resolution. The technique permits assessing the physiological activity of these groups so that inferences to reactor performance can be drawn. Various physiological groups such as fermenters and homoacetogenous bacteria so far can be detected with inadequate resolution only. Ongoing work with a view to amending this is described. (orig.) [German] Dieser Beitrag beschaeftigt sich mit den Moeglichkeiten und Limitierungen des Einsatzes von Oligonukleotidsonden zur in situ Hybridisierung in anaeroben Systemen. Es wird gezeigt, dass ein grosser Teil der Population mit Hilfe dieser Methode erfasst werden kann und verschiedene physiologische Gruppen wie die Sulfatreduzierer und die Methanogenen mit hoher Aufloesung nachgewiesen werden koennen. Die physiologische Aktivitaet dieser Gruppen kann abgeschaetzt werden und damit sind Rueckschluesse auf die Reaktorleistung moeglich. Verschiedene physiologische Gruppen wie die Gaerer und die homoacetogenen Bakterien werden bisher nur in unzureichender Aufloesung erfasst. Die derzeit laufenden Arbeiten zur Loesung dieser Probleme werden beschrieben. (orig.)

    A standard BMW 6-cylinder engine with 4 valves was converted for methanol flexible fuel operation. New performance characteristics of air/fuel mixture and ignition timing were determined for different methanol concentrations (M20, M50, M85). The recognition of the methanol concentration was made by means of a capacitive alcohol sensor and the adaptive Lambda Control. Without any modification of the catalyst the HC emission was reduced about 40% in US-test cycle. The efficiency of M85 was upgraded about 8% under vehicle operation conditions. Under any method concentration the driveability of the car was as well as operated with pure gasoline. Operating with M85 the engine increased torque and power by 11%. (orig.).

    For millennia the power of water was used by direct power transformation and in the year 1850 about 70000 hydroelectric power plants were running in Germany. When remote transmission of electricity became possible around the beginning of the 20{sup th} century, enormous possibilities for the development of hydropower arose. In this article the situation in Bavaria will be presented as an example and the development in the last hundred years will be shown, which has been marked by the struggle for fair electricity tariffs. In addition, this article will look into the present use of hydropower and its possible development potential. A significant role in the development of hydropower has also been played by the hydropower magazines which have been propagating the idea of hydropower. Among these are the magazines ''WasserWirtschaft'' as well as the ''wassertriebwerk'' and their respective predecessors. (orig.)

    Germany is a high-wage country. Hence the internationally competitive extraction of raw materials in Germany can only be ensured by highly efficient working processes. Tackling the associated extreme requirements on road-driving, coal winning and transport equipment has resulted in the German mining industry and its suppliers achieving the role of an international leader in technology. To safeguard this position also in the future the successful mechanisation will now be followed by the mechatronisation in the mining industry. Efficiency will be increased by (partial) automation and assistance systems. This contribution is a first step towards a series of articles, which explain the principles of mechatronic development methods in the mining industry and will make the development engineers in the mines aware of the high potential of mechatronics in the mining industry.

    A framework for driver task analysis is derived from a model of the drivers information processing. The first step of the procedure (SAFE) is to divide a given driving task (e.g. left turning in a signalised intersection of a certain type) into subtasks. These subtasks are appointed to defined stretches of the road and the time structure of the subtasks is determined. For each subtask an analysis format is used, that organizes different requirements into perception, expectation, judgement, memory, decision and driver action. In a next step, typical driver errors are appointed to the subtasks. Afterwards the information gathered in the analysis procedure is compressed to ratings of the complexity and risk included in each subtask. After the crucial subtasks of a driving task have been determined, a list of those requirements that led to that rating can be compiled. These lists give the potential for aiding the driver e.g. by use of driver assistance systems. (orig.) [German] In den Verkehrswissenschaften existieren bislang keine verkehrsspezifischen Standardverfahren, die eine Anforderungsanalyse auf der Ebene der Fahraufgaben erlauben. Dieser Beitrag stellt die Grundzuege eines Verfahrens zur Fahraufgabenanalyse dar (SAFE: Situative Anforderungsanalyse von Fahraufgaben). Es basiert auf einer Modellvorstellung zu den Informationsverarbeitungsprozessen, die waehrend der Bewaeltigung der Fahraufgabe eine Rolle spielen. Der erste Schritt der Aufgabenanalyse besteht darin, eine ausgewaehlte Fahraufgabe (z.B. Linksabbiegen in einer ampelgeregelten Kreuzung bestimmten Typs) in Teilaufgaben zu zerlegen und eine zeitliche Strukturierung dieser Teilaufgaben vorzunehmen. Diese werden raeumlichen Segmenten zugeordnet, die nacheinander durchfahren werden muessen. Fuer jede Teilaufgabe erfolgt dann die eigentliche Anforderungsanalyse, die nach den Kapiteln Wahrnehmung, Erwartungsbildung, Beurteilung, Gedaechtnisprozesse, Entscheidung/Planung sowie Fahrzeugbedienung mit jeweils bis zu acht Unterkapiteln gegliedert ist. In weiteren Schritten werden die fuer jede Teilaufgabe typischen Fehler aufgelistet, Komplexitaets- und Risikoeinschaetzungen vorgenommen und daraus Listen von Anforderungen erstellt, die das Entlastungspotential bilden, das z.B. durch Fahrerassistenzsysteme ausgeschoepft werden koennte.

    The current work is concerned with the development of highly selective facilitated transport membranes for olefin/paraffin separation. Adsorption measurements with 7 silver salts showed that silver-perchlorate was the most promising carrier material. This carrier was embedded into two different commercial available polyetherblockamides - Pebax trademark 4011 and Pebax trademark 2533 with up to 41 wt.-% of silver ions. The solubility of the carrier in polymer and the influence of humidity on the separation characteristics of the membranes were studied in detail. The aging of the membrane samples was investigated as well. A composite membrane with a top layer of Pebax trademark 2533/silver-perchlorate showed the best performance. Ethylene permeabilities in the range of 0.1 to 0.4 m{sup 3}/m{sup 2} h bar and gas mixture selectivities of 110 to 400 were measured with an humidified equimolar gas mixture of ethylene and ethane. Best results were obtained with membranes manufactured from proposely aging coating solutions and a sub-surface-structure. These membranes showed a permeability coefficient up to 1000 Barrer for ethylene with a gas mixture selectivity of 400. (orig.)

    The purpose of this thesis is the development and proving of a high precision in-situ hygrometer for the research airplane HALO which uses the Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy. To provide tropospheric and stratospheric measurements between 2 ppmv and 10000 ppmv two different lasers are implemented: One for high mixing ratios up to 10000 ppmv in the 1,4 {mu}m absorption band of the wate molecule and one for low mixingratios between 2 ppmv and 400 ppmv in the 2,6 {mu}m ground vibrational band. For noncontact measurements of gas phase water an open path cell with two absorption paths has been developed. In contrast to the common Herriott setup of such a cell with multiple absorption paths this cell has been designed as a White cell to include a direct fiber coupling. By using a computational based optimization for the optical absorption paths the disruptive interfering effects could be reduced below a level of 266 ppmv which is given by the used lasers. Due to the technical difficulties by measuring temperature and pressure inside an open path cell the avionik data of the airplane will be used for the spectroscopical analysis. Fluid dynamical simulations revealed that the airflow disturbance could be reduced to an extend, that the originated errors would be equal or less than 7,7%. Furthermore a simulation could show that the cell would not be dealigned during extreme flight situations. The laser radiation of both lasers is transmitted by single mode fibers to the open path cell. To realize that a special airproof optical box was developed for the 2,6 m-Laser. This box contains the fiber coupling of the free laser beam and other spectroscopic components. Because there where no experiences by using the needed fluor based fibres for a spectrometer a characterization was done. In this connection a temperature dependent damping was ascertained. This causes an additional damping of up to -1,2 dB at low temperatures of -80 C. Comparison measurements of the 1,4 m spectrometer with reference instruments showed a deviation of less than 2,5% in the absolute values. For the 2,6 m spectrometer the deviation was bigger for humidities greater than 80 ppmv, but the sources of interference was located. With the reached detection limit and the actual not utilised potential this instrument will provide high precision humidity measurements during the HALO campaigns. (orig.)

    Historically early steam power plants were developed to replace muscular power of men and animals and to gain independence from wind and water power. The further development of power plant technology was driven by the demand to meet the fast growing consumption of electric power with a higher degree of efficiency. In the nineteenth century steam power was the key element for industrialisation. Instrumentation and control equipments were the key factors for the safe operation of power generating processes, becoming more and more complex during the twentieth century. The use of control concepts with increasing performance induced the development of adequate instrumentation and control systems. This paper outlines the history of steam power from the beginning to the seventies and focuses on automation concepts, without further regarding details of apparatus und system technology. (orig.)

    This revised final report on the development of a research programme for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) describes the proposals for the development of a concept for Swiss hydropower research activities for the period 2008 - 2011. According to the authors, the new research programme will not only include activities in the small hydropower area, but rather all aspects of hydropower usage, including dams and large hydropower stations. The results of a survey made concerning research and further education in the hydropower area are discussed. These results formed the basis of the new concept. The report also presents a review of the present situation with regard to hydrological questions and dams as well as mechanical and electrical equipment. The education and training of professionals is looked at and national and international co-operation in the hydropower area is also discussed. Future developments are looked at, as are the economic aspects of the use of hydropower. Measures to be taken in the research area are proposed.

    A new electrolytic process was developed to form solar selective layers on aluminium. In the developed process, both the formation of the alumina layer and the deposition of metals into the layer takes place in only one treatment step using a single electrolysis bath. The main step of the so called ISOC-method (impulse structured oxide ceramic) is the anodic oxidation of aluminium which was carried out by using a pulse technique at different voltages. During the anodic polarisation a thin alumina ceramic layer was formed, while the cathodic led to the metal deposition as copper and nickel. The conditions of the electrolysis were varied in order to estimate optimal parameters achieving solar selective layers with high selectivity. Furthermore, a scale-up of the lab scale apparatus to a mini plant was carried out. Finally, the corrosion resistance of the absorber layers was improved by the formation of a thin hydrophobic overlayer using a sol-gel treatment. (orig.) [Deutsch] Ein neuartiges Behandlungsverfahren zur Erzeugung von solarselektiven Absorberschichten auf Aluminium wurde entwickelt. Bei dieser elektrochemischen Behandlung wird in einem Einstufenprozess mit einem Elektrolyten durch eine Kombination von anodischer Oxidation und bipolarer Pulsbehandlung auf der Oberflaeche des Aluminiums eine impulsstrukturierte Oxidkeramik (ISOK) erzeugt. Dabei entsteht durch eine anodische Oxidation eine strukturierte Aluminiumoxidschicht. Bei der bipolaren Pulsbehandlung erfolgt dann eine Abscheidung der im ISOK-Elektrolyten befindlichen Metalle Cu und Ni auf oder in die Aluminiumoxidoberflaeche. Die ISOK-Behandlung wurde vom Labormassstab zu einem ISOK-Verfahren im Miniplant-Massstab entwickelt. Der Einfluss der elektrischen Parameter und der chemischen Zusammensetzung der ISOK-Elektrolyte wurde untersucht. Durch eine auf das ISOK-Verfahren abgestimmte Nachbehandlung, ein Tauchverfahren in einer Sol-Gel-Loesung, entsteht ein Schichtsystem mit hoher Solarselektivitaet. (orig.)

    The natural and anthropogenic partial component of the ecological surrounding field in Saxony are loaded unacceptably high, show extreme noxious effects and impair directly and indirectly the well-being of the human being as well as the new structurization of economy through its inhibiting influence on investments. Since the old structures of the society could not be reformed with the renaissance of the Saxionian Free State, at present the appearance of the socio-economic environment with the components economy and social security is affected by a negative tendency favored by the effect of the ecological environment. The change of this tendency is required vehemently. The realization of simultaneous economic development, reduction of environmental impact and removal of endangering potentials force to open up new ways. Time is pressing from the ecological as well as from the socio-economic point of view. The market as controlling regulative is not sufficient. The view of the entire society and the togetherness overlapping the frontiers are requested. The institutionalization of the common interests in a European region Bohemia-Saxony-Silesia to be formed has a historical significance for Europe and should be supported. (orig.)

    Solid oxide fuel cells offer high potential in transforming the chemical energy of hydrogen or natural gas into electrical energy. Due to the high efficiency of fuel cells, lots of effort has been made in the improvement of net efficiency and in materials development during the last years. Recently, the introduction of high performance, low-cost production technologies become more and more important. At the Institute of Energy Research IEF-1 of Forschungszentrum Julich, standard SOFCs were processed by time and work consuming methods. On the way to market entrance, product costs have to be reduced drastically. The aim of this thesis is the introduction of a high efficient low-cost processing route for the SOFC manufacturing. Therefore, the well-known and well established shaping technology tape casting was used for generating the anode substrates. As the first goal of this approach, two different tape casting slurries were developed in order to get substrates in the thickness range from 300 to 500 {mu}m after sintering. After shaping of the substrates, sinter regimes for the different necessary coatings were adapted to the novel substrate types in order to obtain cells with high performance and strength. Therefore, the different coating technologies like screen printing and vacuum slip casting were used for cell manufacturing. The optimization of the different coating steps during cell manufacturing led to high performance SOFCs with a 10% higher power output compared to the Julich state-of-the-art SOFC. Additional experiments verified the workability of the novel tape cast substrates for the manufacturing of near-net-shape SOFC. Finally, the novel cell types based on tape cast substrates were assembled to stacks with up to ten repeating units. Stack tests showed identical performance and degradation compared to stacks containing state-of-the-art SOFCs. Thus, the complete lifetime circle of a SOFC starting from powder preparation to stack assembly has been investigated and optimized. Next generation SOFC were developed by using tape casting as the shaping method for the necessary layers of half cells. With respect to cost effective processing methods, stepwise casting onto dried, but unfired tapes offers a lot of advantages. Furthermore, the flattening of the half cells during the sintering is not necessary, if identical electrolyte powders were used in the anode substrate and the electrolyte layer. Single cell tests with the novel tape cast half cells showed good power output. (orig.)

    This publication shows the influences of innovative mild-hybrid functions on the design of neuralgic powernet components. It is pointed out which special demands need to be fulfilled by the energy storage devices and the alternator when introducing novel powernet measures. The consequences on the electrical vehicle powernet are derived and it is shown, which countermeasures can be taken in order to avoid negative influences on the customer as far as possible. This paper demonstrates, how Powernet Profiling can be used for these purposes as an integral method for the development and design of safe vehicle powernets. (orig.)

    Germany, like other states, committed itself to sustainable development in the Rio declaration of 1992. The boundary conditions for this are set by nature itself, whose laws must be respected if goals like reliability of supply and economic efficiency are to be achieved. This study of the Federal Environmental Office shows how sustainable power supply can be achieved. It is possible to combine climate protection, reliability of supply and economic efficiency, even without nuclear power and without constructing new conventional power plants that do not have the function of combined heat and power generation.

    The power supply sector in Germany will be faced with many challenges in the near future. On the one hand, there is the dependence on imported energy sources and the impending shortage of fossil fuels with the consequence of dramatic price increases; on the other hand, there are enhanced climate protection efforts both on a national and an international scale. Increasing competition in the power generation sector requires greater efforts as a consequence of increasing deregulation and an increasing need for newly constructed power plants; the latter will depend to a considerable extent on the residual operating time of the existing nuclear power stations. Against this background, the ''Energieprognose 2009'' takes a look at the long-term development of power supply in Germany through 2030. (orig.)

    der Vergangenheit oft als waermetechnische Schwachstellen in der Aussenhuelle eines Gebaeudes angesehen. Steigende Anforderungen an den baulichen Waermeschutz wurden von allen Beteiligten als Herausforderung angenommen. Die Entwicklung neuer Verglasungen und verbesserter Rahmen machte es moeglich, auch nach Inkrafttreten der neuen Waermeschutzverordnung am 1. Januar 1995 grossflaechige Fenster und verglaste Fassadenelemente einzusetzen. Von wesentlicher Bedeutung ist in diesem Zusammenhang die jetzt moegliche Beruecksichtigung des Energiezugewinns von aussen ueber transparente Bauteile. Die einzelnen Komponenten von Fenstern, Fensterelementen und Leichtfassaden wie Rahmen, Verglasungen, Paneele und Zusatzbauteile, wie z.B. Rollaeden, muessen allerdings genau geplant werden. Neben den thermischen Eigenschaften sind auch stets die anderen Kriterien wie Brandschutz, Schallschutz, Sonnenschutz und Sicherheit zu beruecksichtigen. Die neuen Landesbauordnungen und die vom Deutschen Institut fuer Bautechnik gefuehrte Bauregelliste legen fest, welche Verwendbarkeits- und Uebereinstimmungsnachweise fuer die verschiedenen Bauprodukte wie Rahmen, Glas, Fenster, Rolladenkaesten, Heizkoerperabdeckungen usw. erforderlich sind. Dabei wird z.Zt. noch ueberwiegend auf nationale Regelwerke Bezug genommen. Zukuenftig werden jedoch mehr und mehr europaeische Normen fertiggestellt und auch eingefuehrt. Auch bei Fenstern und Verglasungen wird es hier einige entscheidende Veraenderungen geben. Waermebrueckeneffekte werden staerker beruecksichtigt. Fuer die Ermittlung von waermetechnischen Eigenschaften wird es verstaerkt die Moeglichkeit der Berechnung geben. Fenster und Verglasungen sind heute bei richtiger Planung und Ausfuehrung waermetechnisch hochentwickelte Bauprodukte, die auch in grossflaechigen Abmessungen energiesparendes Bauen ermoeglichen.

    Thin crystalline Si wafer solar cells were processed at reduced temperatures. In addition multicrystalline thin-film solar cells were fabricated on graphite substrates. Large area (175 cm{sup 2}) wafer solar cells made from mono- as well as from tricrystalline Si material were processed with reduced thicknesses down to 100 {mu}m. Conversion efficiencies were obtained in the range between 11.5 and 12.5% without antireflection coating. The reduction of the process temperatures had no positive impact on the expected cost reduction because of the degradation of the electrical cell data during processing. Tricrystalline Si wafers have shown to be mechanically stronger than monocrystalline Si material. Consequently, tri-Si ingots can be sawn in thinner wafers with higher yield. The concept of backside-contacted solar cell was realized by the preparation of thin slit solar cells (150 {mu}m thin, 43 cm{sup 2} in area) made from tri-Si. A conversion efficiency of 14,3% was reached. Amorphous Si layer deposited on graphite substrates were recrystallized by the electron beam recrystallization method developed by the Technical University in Hamburg-Harburg. The recrystallized Si layers showed large grains and were suitible as seed layers for the following gas phase epitaxy (CVD). With the CVD method 20 to 40 {mu}m thin Si absorber layers were deposited on the seed layers with the same excellent crystallographic properties. In contrast, their electrical properties were not sufficient for the preparation of solar cells having more than 3% efficiency. The study of the different concepts has shown, that the development of thin wafer solar cells made from tri-Si has the highest potential with respect to a further cost reduction. (orig.)

    Common decisions for locations of production plants are based on criteria such as availability of commodities, energy, infrastructure and costs related with these. Sizing of product capacities depends on other things such as production quantities to be sold and profits to be obtained. The condition is an permanent availability of the required energy. For concepts of using surplus renewable energies especially wind energy for hydrogen production common methods are only partly suitable. Thus in this work an evaluation methodology was developed which integrated duration and amount of available energy for decisions of locations and dimensioning of the plant. Initially the hydrogen plant is modularised and segmented to the sub processed energy supply, water supply, water electrolyses, cooling, storing and compression for transport. After the specification of technological and economical parameters, the material and energy streams as well as the costs are calculated for every individual plant. Based on the given conditions, the configuration of plant and also the investigation of site-specific production costs is done. By variation of technology and costs parameters, feasibility studies and different operating scenarios can be demonstrated. The application of this evaluation methodology is demonstrated by case studies. A hydrogen plant situated at an industry park serves as a reference plant for the continuous operation with grid energy. Using a wind energy propelled hydrogen plant as an example, the effects of amount and duration of the usable energy are shown. Based on predefined hydrogen prices, the correlation between optimal plant capacity and plant utilization is described and the difference between the predefined price and the operation costs is calculated. This difference can be used to finance the wind farm operation. The results serves among others for the development of optimal operation concepts and also for first cost estimations, prior to a detailed plant design.

    In this thesis, the possibilities and limitations of a hydrometallurgical clean-up technique are shown for treating mercury contaminated solids. The principles of the technique were described by models that derived from theoretical considerations. These models were experimentally examined, tested with realcontaminated solids and used to design a new process, the electroleaching. Two variants of this cyclic process were developed. They differ in the combination of a chloridic oxidative leaching step, a cathodic mercury deposition and an anodic leachate regeneration. All steps were analysed thermodynamically and kinetically. Treating highly contaminated soils residual concentrations of mercury below 1 mg kg{sup -1} were achieved. It was also possible to separate simultaneously traces of gold from mercury containing gold mining residues and to lower contents of chlorinated hydrocarbons a well. (orig.) [Deutsch] In dieser Arbeit werden die Moeglichkeiten und Grenzen einer hydrometallurgischen Reinigungstechnik fuer Feststoffe aufgezeigt, die mit Quecksilber kontaminiert sind. Dazu wurden aus theoretischen Ueberlegungen heraus entwickelte Modellierungen experimentell abgeprueft, verfahrenstechnisch umgesetzt und an realkontaminierten Feststoffen erprobt. So wurde ein neues Kreislaufverfahren entwickelt, die Elektrolaugung. Die zwei vorgestellten Prozessvarianten unterscheiden sich durch die jeweilige Kombination von chloridisch-oxidierender Laugung, kathodischer Quecksilberabscheidung und anodischer Laugungsmittel-Regenerierung. Alle Teilprozesse wurden sowohl thermodynamisch als auch kinetisch analysiert. Bei Behandlung industrieller Altlasten konnten Quecksilber-Restgehalte unter 1 mg kg{sup -1} erreicht werden. Ebenso konnten Goldspuren aus quecksilberhaltigen Abgaengen brasilianischer Goldgewinnung abgetrennt sowie Gehalte an chlorierten Kohlenwasserstoffen verringert werden. (orig.)

    Studies assign a tremendous growth potential related to biotechnology. However, the predicted proportion of biotechnological manufactured products in the chemical industry for the year 2010 by 20 % will more likely remain by today's 5 %. The study deals with the question why biotechnological products are currently established at the market in the obvious slow way. Therefore, the current constraints and existing respectively new incentive instruments referring to the white (industrial) biotechnology are analyzed to focus on the promotion of the development and application of environmentally friendly biotechnology products and methods. In addition to a search concerning environmental relevance and further development of white biotechnology, the postulated constraints and incentives as well as new promotions are discussed with the help of expert interviews. On the basis of a preliminary study - after further discussion with experts - concrete proposals on improvements related to an ongoing establishment of biotechnology will be derived. Based on case studies (2nd generation biofuels, polyhydroxybutyrate as biopolymer and phytase as an animal feed additive), the practical effects and specific conditions to incentives, from the perspective of biotechnological processes and environmentally friendly products are investigated. Overall, about 40 activities were recommended, which could be assigned to areas of direct government incentives (tax policy/subsidies, subsidies, education and research policy, basic political conditions, government demand and information policy/consumer intelligence) as well as non-governmental incentives (knowledge transfer and cooperation, organisation-related policy, capital market financing).

    The article uses the example of solenoid-based fuel injectors for diesel engines to demonstrate how a combination of reconfigurable logic and microcontrollers may be employed towards the rapid implementation of new control concepts for timely testing either directly on the engine or in the vehicle. Emphasis is given to the development and optimization of electronic engine management components. In contrast to the nonexistent modification options on conventional production ECUs, the new concept allows for the modification and fine-tuning of a number of injection parameters. The rapid prototyping system is a joint development of the Research and Advanced Engineering Department of Robert Bosch GmbH and ETAS GmbH. (orig.)

    The newly developed evaluation procedure considers multidiscipline influences on the fuel consumption of a vehicle and thus enables an objective quantification of the influence of different steering systems on the fuel consumption under customer-relevant driving conditions. The energetic analysis and the comparison of the steering systems are based on driving cycles which cover different customer-relevant driving maneuvers. As a condition, different boundary conditions are selected such as input by the driver, vehicle parameter and road conditions. Hardware-in-the-loop simulation is used for the accurate reproduction of the inputs. The results refer to steering systems with hydraulic and electromechanical principles of operation as well as demand-oriented hydraulic steering systems. The potential of improvement of the conventional hydraulic steering system with a pump with adjustable flow rate is experimentally determined.

The task of an intelligent Power Management System is to optimise power generation as well as to achieve a reliable supply for electric loads. This paper deals with tools for development and evaluation of these functions. The preliminary design of control concepts is based on simulation. The simulation models are completely described by an object-oriented modeling language. Parameters of components from present power systems are extracted from measurements in the vehicle and with the help of a Hardware-in-the-Loop test bench. First simulation results indicate the quality of the new power management concepts. In parallel, these concepts can be approved on the test bench. (orig.)

    As the parameters describing air currents in rooms will change to the opposite when the characteristic length is shortened, small-scale investigations of room air currents are not possible. For this reason, the E.ON Energy Research Center set up a ''Hardware-in-the-Loop'' (HiL) test stand which models a real hydraulic heating system of an apartment or a building. The test stand consists of several interconnected model rooms with typical heating units, and only the enclosing building volume is reduced. The model rooms all have a volume of 3-4 m{sup 3}. Depending on the heat emitted by the radiators, the boundary conditions of air supply (volume flow and temperature) and of the walls (wall surface tempeartures) are calculated using the simulation software Modelica and are emulated in the test stand. The measured heat emissions of the radiators are used as boundary conditions in the thermohydraulic simulations. The function of the HiL test stand was first tested in a single model room. Verification of the test stand concept took place via measurements of the velocity and temperature field in front of the radiator, which were compared with measurements in a thermal test stand with realistic room dimensions. [German] Da die Parameter zur Beschreibung von Raumluftstroemungen bei einer Verkleinerung der charakteristischen Laenge ein gegensaetzliches Verhalten aufweisen, koennen die Untersuchungen von Raumluftstroemungen nicht kleinskaliert werden. Deswegen wird am E.ON Energy Research Center ein ''Hardware-in-the-Loop'' (HiL) -Pruefstand entwickelt, welcher ein reales hydraulisches Heizungsnetz einer Wohnung oder eines Gebaeudes mit geringem Platzbedarf nachbildet. In den Pruefstand, welcher aus mehreren vernetzten Modellraeumen besteht, werden typische Heizkoerper eingebaut und nur das umschliessende Volumen wird verkleinert. Die Modellraeume haben jeweils ein Volumen von 3-4 m{sup 3}. Abhaengig von der Waermeabgabe der Heizkoerper werden die einzustellenden Randbedingungen der Zuluft (Volumenstroeme und Temperaturen) und der Waende (Oberflaechentemperaturen) mit Hilfe der Simulationssoftware Modelica berechnet und am Pruefstand emuliert. Die gemessenen Waermeemissionen der Heizkoerper werden als Randbedingungen an die thermohydraulische Simulation uebergeben. Um die Funktionsweise des HiL-Pruefstandes zu testen, wird zunaechst ein einzelner Modellraum aufgebaut. Zur Verifizierung des Pruefstand-Konzepts werden Messungen des Geschwindigkeits- und Temperaturfeldes vor dem Heizkoerper gemacht und mit Messungen in einem thermischen Pruefstand mit realistischen Raumabmessungen verglichen.

    Downsizing in combination with turbocharging represents the main technology trend for meeting climate relevant CO{sub 2} emission standards in gasoline engine applications. Extended levels of downsizing involve increasing degrees of pulse charging. Separation of cylinder blow downs, either with double entry turbines or valve train variability, is key for achieving enhanced rated power and low-end-torque targets in highly boosted four-cylinder engines. However, double entry turbines feature specific development challenges: The aerodynamic design via 3D CFD calculations presents a difficult task as well as the engine performance modeling and matching process in 1D gas exchange simulations. From a manufacturing standpoint, casting of the turbine housing is complex especially for small displacement applications below 1.6 l due to e.g. thermo-mechanical boundaries. This paper demonstrates how to design and model double entry turbine performance characteristics within 1D gas exchange simulations, requiring special measured and processed turbine data, which is experimentally assessed on a hot gas test bench using a double burner setup. It is shown how the collective of the described development strategies can be used in assessing the potential of different turbine design concepts. This allows the turbocharger to be designed exactly to specific engine requirements. (orig.)

    The data acquistion system SOS has been developed for the SAPHIR experiment at the Bonn stretcher ring ELSA. It can handle up to 280 kilobytes of data per second or a maximum triggerrate of 200 Hz. The multiprocessor based online system consists of twenty VIP-microprocessors and two VAX-computers. Each component of the SAPHIR experiment has at least one program in the online system to maintain special functions for this specific component. All of these programs can receive event data without interfering with the transfer of events to a mass storage for offline analysis. A special program SOL has been developed to serve as a user interface to the data acquisition system and as a status display for most of the programs of the online system. Using modern features like windowing and mouse control on a VAX-station the SAPHIR online SOL establishes an easy way of controlling the data acquisition system. (orig.).

    Two examples are chosen to describe the possiblities and limitations of using 3D seismic data for the interpretation of structures and the seismic characterisation of reservoirs. New techniques of seismic classification offer a great deal of possibilities, especially if - as in the case of Ruehme - there is a sufficiency of data from many borehole locations which enables the training of algorithms.(orig.) [Deutsch] Anhand zweier Beispiele wurden die Moeglichkeiten aber auch die Grenzen des Einsatzes 3D seismischer Daten bei der strukturellen Interpretation und der seismischen Reservoircharakterisierung aufgezeigt. Neuartige Techniken der seismischen Klassifizierung erweitern die Moeglichkeiten dabei betraechtlich, insbesondere, wenn - wie beim Beispiel Ruehme - durch die vielen Bohrlokationen ausreichend Daten zum Trainieren der Algorithmen zur Verfuegung stehen.

    Spectrometric probes with medium energy resolution (NaI, LaBr{sub 3}, CZT) have the potential to enhance existing gamma dose rate monitoring networks as a early warning system by increasing the sensitivity and specificity. In an emergency situation nuclide specific information with sufficient spatial resolution can be made available to decision makers. An ongoing research project between BfS and the Freiburg Material Research Centre (FMF) aims at the development of semiconductor detectors based on Cadmium-Zink-Telluride which can be used for low cost ruggedized spectrometric systems suitable for deployment in an environmental network. The new probe contains also a newly developed versatile multi channel analyser. The system has a modular design and is based - where ever possible - on open source components. It is complemented by specific analysis software using established data exchange formats. This facilitates international cooperation and exploits synergies through distributed development of components.

    Global environmental policy has hardly made headway after the United Nations World Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio in June 1992, despite there being no shortage of programmes, institutions, and actors. Obviously, formal structures for political action based on the system of institutions of the United Nations do not suffice. Global environmental policy strategies must reach further, overcoming system-immanent obstacles to sustainable development. This necessitates analyzing the causes of environmental destruction and making a critical evaluation of the relations between the societies of the North and South that received their imprint from development policies. Only after such a preliminary elucidation by interdisciplinary approaches in the light of political and ecological economy and human ecology does an empirical analysis of politically controlled processes in environmental and development policy make sense. The analysis points to strategies for this international political field that rely on non-governmental actors and social movements, and question the traditional European model of an environmental policy determined by government institutions.

    It is a declared goal of the Federal Government and almost all German parties to implement e-mobility by 2050 and to achieve the decarbonisation of the energy industry by the end of the century. Starting from these two premises, the motor vehicle industry and the electricity market will develop very dynamically. However, they must be coordinated by legal frameworks and, as far as possible, driven by market incentives for producers and purchasers of motor vehicles, electricity producers and consumers as well as network and storage system operators. Various approaches can be developed for this. [German] Es ist erklaertes Ziel der Bundesregierung und nahezu aller deutschen Parteien, die E-Mobilitaet bis 2050 durchzusetzen und die Dekarbonisierung der Energiewirtschaft bis Ende des Jahrhunderts zu erreichen. Von diesen beiden Praemissen ausgehend, werden sich die Kraftfahrzeugbranche und der Strommarkt sehr dynamisch entwickeln. Sie muessen aber durch gesetzliche Rahmenbedingungen koordiniert und moeglichst marktkonform durch Anreize fuer Produzenten und Kaeufer von Kraftfahrzeugen, Stromerzeuger und -verbraucher sowie Netz- und Speicherbetreiber gelenkt werden. Dafuer lassen sich verschiedenen Ansaetze entwickeln.

  16. Development and test of a high-resolution detector for synchrotron radiation imaging; Entwicklung und Test eines hochaufloesenden Detektors zur Bildgebung mit Synchrotronstrahlung

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ruebsamen, Oliver

    2011-07-01

    For medical imaging with x-rays, especially coronary angiography in vivo, high position resolution detectors are needed, thereby being able to deliver a contrast better than 1% and a readout speed faster than milliseconds. Since coronary angiography uses a contrast agent like iodine or gadolinium, high energy photons up to 51 keV are needed for imaging. The k-edge subtraction method allows visualizing small vessels because of the sharp jump of absorption at the k-edge of the contrast agent and the almost constant absorption of the surrounding tissue and bone, as well as the measurement of the concentration of the contrast agent to explore heart dynamics. Various detectors and detector materials are in use or development to match these conditions. Solid state Si-, Ge-, CdZnTe-, CdMnTe- or CdTe-seminconductor detectors are used or tested for imaging, each of them having different physical and/or technical problems which prevent to meet the required specifications. These problems are low absorption efficiency (Si) and reduced position resolution if scintillators are used, cooling and poor resolution (Ge) and charge spread along many pixels and technical problems to manufacture a detector chip (CdZnTe, CdMnTe, CdTe). The approach made in this work is a gas filled ionization chamber, built as a integrating line detector. In general, ionization chambers always suffer from poor absorption efficiency, but this can be overcome using the noble Gases Ar, Kr or Xe at very high gas pressures around 50 bar and relatively long (in the range of cm) anode strips. This design is critical for parallax effects, so an x-ray beam with a very small beam divergence is needed. This requirement in combination with the desired contrast and timing resolution can only be achieved by synchrotron light sources of the third generation, like the DORIS ring at DESY, Hamburg or the ESR in Grenoble. A different problem of ionization chambers is fluorescence photons, which produce a background signal over many readout strips. This problem is reduced by a small gap (< 1mm) between the cathode and the anode strips, so that the solid angle for detected fluorescence photons gets very small. The small gap in combination with the high pressure reduces also the diffusion process, since the mean free path of drifting electrons is proportional to the inverse of the pressure and the spread due to diffusion is proportional to the square root of the gap. The time resolution is limited by the ion drift velocity, typically of the order of cm/{mu}sec and the readout electronics. With a gap of 0.5 mm, timing resolutions of 100 {mu}sec are possible. In combination with already tested Jamex readout electronics, which provide a readout cycle of 128 {mu}sec, dynamit heat measurements even for small animals are possible. The aim of this thesis is to discover the physical limits of the described ionization chamber by developed simulation software. This simulation considers the physical processes inside the gas volume after exposure to a monochromatic x-ray beam, as well as the detector geometry to calculate the spread of the charge cloud. A prototype detector is build to demonstrate the technical realizations of such a detector design and to show the physical limits of the simulation via a simple experiment. Furthermore, a prediction of spatial resolutions of this detector type according to the developed software is shown. (orig.)

    The Institute of Physics in Heidelberg participates in the development and construction of the Outer Tracker (OT) of LHCb at CERN. The OT is a modular system of straw tube drift chambers of up to 5 m length. This thesis reports the prototyping at the end of 2001 and the developments up to the definite design at the beginning of the mass production in spring 2004 at Heidelberg. Based on the experience gained from the prototype production and following operation tests, several components of the chamber, as well as the production process were gradually optimized. In addition to the operation tests of a full size prototype, ageing studies were performed with specially designed chambers at the X-ray facility of the Institute of Physics. Two drift gases Ar/CO2/CF4 and Ar/CO2 were tested to compare their ageing properties. Moreover the impact of the water content in the gases on wire etching and deposits on the anode wires was studied. In addition the possible impact of different construction materials on ageing was...

    The introduction of the bolter miner technic at Auguste Victoria/Blumenthal mine will be shown. This benchmarking project coming from the australian mining industry was put into practice for the first time in the german hard coal industry. It was rapidly turned out, that the demands of the roadways concerning the number and length of the required bolts and as well as the safety aspects are very different to the visited headings in Australia. The way starting with an average drivage rate of 5 m/d day in the first project up to today's performance level of 16 m/d in the third project is represented. From a view on the totality it is described, what kind of demands are required by the logistics, the infrastructure, the organization of the operation, the ergonomics and last but not least the motivation of the crew to achieve a high performance of 22 m/d. (orig.) [German] Im Beitrag wird die Einfuehrung der Bolter-Miner-Technik auf dem Bergwerk Auguste Victoria/Blumenthal aufgezeigt.

Zudem wird der Weg von durchschnittlich 5 m/d im ersten Projekt bis zu den heutigen Leistungsdaten von 16 m/d im dritten Projekt dargestellt. In einer ganzheitlichen Betrachtung wird aufgezeigt, welche Anforderungen in der Logistik, in der Infrastruktur, in der Betriebsorganisation, in der Ergonomie und in der Motivation der Mannschaft notwendig waren, Spitzenleistungen von 22 m/d zu erreichen.

    This two-step method described here for the determination of the total carbon-14 content in saturated salt solutions is divided in the analysis of the carbon-14 in the evaporable and the non-evaporable fraction. After driving off the inorganic carbon by acidification, the volatile carbon compounds and volatile decomposition products follow with rising temperature inside the sample vessel in a mild stream of oxygen to a tube furnace equipped with CuO catalyst for oxidizing the carbon compounds to CO{sub 2} at a temperature of 800 C. Water is condensed out with an intensive condenser and the released CO{sub 2} is absorbed in a wash bottle filled with sodium hydroxide. Similarly, an aliquot of the evaporation residue is put in the first zone of the tube furnace during the second step of the analysis. After heating the catalyst in the second zone of the furnace to 800 C the residue is heated stepwise to 800 C. By proceeding in this way, the non-volatile compounds are decomposed or oxidised in the oxygen stream and finally completely oxidized by the aid of the catalyst. The released CO{sub 2} is again absorbed in another wash bottle. The carbonate of each fraction is then precipitated as BaCO{sub 3} separately. Finally, the precipitate is washed, dried, finely grounded and covered with toluene scintillation cocktail for measurement in a LSC. The detection limit is about 0,2 Bq/l for a sample volume of 250 ml.

An electric efficiency of 50% can be achieved provided that the liquefied CO2 is utilized to substitute CO2 liquefaction in another point of the process. The high-temperature waste heat of the 250 kW SOFC is fed into the brewer's copper via feedwater preheating.

Unter der Voraussetzung, dass dieses verfluessigte CO{sub 2} als Produkt Verwendung findet und die CO{sub 2}-Verfluessigung an anderer Stelle substituiert, kann der von der SOFC gelieferte Energiebeitrag zur CO{sub 2}-Verfluessigung dem Gesamtsystem gutgeschrieben werden, so dass der elektrische Wirkungsgrad bei 50% bleibt. Die Hochtemperaturabwaerme der 250 kW-SOFC wird ueber eine Speisewasservorwaermung in den Dampfkessel der Brauerei eingekoppelt.

    To ensure that steel jacket foundations for offshore wind turbines are securely anchored, they are fixed to the seabed by means of ''pins''. The pins consist of pipe piles weighing up to 140 metric tons, and are driven into the seabed by a vibratory hammer and then anchored by impact driving. ThyssenKrupp Tiefbautechnik has modified a vibratory hammer so that it can pick up the piles horizontally directly from the working ship or pontoon and then vibrate them vertically into the ground. This significantly reduces installation times and foundation costs. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Since the reign of Philip the Good, the combination of fire-iron, flint and fire has been used in the Duchy of Burgundy for symbolic purposes. On the founding of his Order of the Golden Fleece in the year 1430, the Golden Ram was added to create the symbol of the Order. The article sheds light on the way this symbolism was utilised within the iconography of the Dukes Philip the Good and Charles the Bold as well as the Emperors Maximilian I. and Ferdinand I. The motivation approaching and analysing this question arose out of the substantially unrecognized elitist usage and scale of implementation of this imagery under Ferdinand I. which never has been a subject of intense research so far. Compared to his predecessors, Ferdinand I. used these symbols in all his art procurement with exceptional concentration, especially on his residential architecture, i.e. the Belvedere in Prague, Bratislava Castle, and the Hofburg in Vienna. This had an enduring effect also on the art of his successors.

    The term risk analysis summarises the systematic endeavour to identify and evaluate the risks within an organisation associated with projects and actions, and make it possible to regulate risks. Risk analyses are an integral component of risk management, and thus essential to consolidating safety. In that respect, the adequacy and reliability of the findings obtained by way of risk analysis directly depend on the availability and quality of the knowledge resources supplied organisationally. Access to knowledge relevant to making decisions is, however, hampered, in the real world of work through the impact of various informational barriers. Knowledge that is conducive to understanding and avoiding risks is frequently stored in very specialised database systems, the individual syntactic and semantic structures of which make it a very time-consuming and laborious operation to use such knowledge in the context of applications other than the one originally linked to the databases. In addition, a degree of ambiguit...

    In Wind-Kraft-Journal 3-/2003, the various possibilities of analyzing dynamic processes in wind power systems were presented, using the example of the main gear. This contribution now focuses on shaft displacement in axial direction, which enhances the possibility of axial sliding of the rolling elements. SKF, one of the main producers of bearings, always took care to analyze both types of analysis in the design of momentum bearing concepts. The results showed that higher stiffness is achieved ideally with a two-row tapered roller concept combined with a flexible cage and a pressure angle up to 45 degree. (orig.) [German] Im Wind-Kraft-Journal Ausgabe 3/2003 wurden am Beispiel des Hauptgetriebes verschiedene Moeglichkeiten der Analyse dynamischer Vorgaenge in Windkraftanlagen vorgestellt. Anhand des Phaenomens Drehmomentenumkehr, welche in WKA nachgewiesen ist, wurde aufgezeigt, wie sich die Lastuebertragung in den Waelzlagern veraendert und die Wellen zu einander verschieben. Diese Relativbewegungen werden mit zunehmender Elastizitaet der gesamten Konstruktion und mit zunehmendem Lagerspiel groesser. Aufgrund der traegen Massen der bewegten Bauteile erzeugen die Wellenverschiebungen unerwuenschte Zusatzlasten fuer die Waelzlager. Der groesste Anteil der Wellenverschiebungen erfolgt in axialer Richtung. Damit steigt bei Rollenlargern die Wahrscheinlichkeit des Auftretens von Verschleiss erzeugendem axialen Gleiten der Waelzkoerper. SKF hat von Anfang an bei der Auslegung von Momentenlagerkonzepten beide Analysemethoden eingesetzt. Die Ergebnisse haben gezeigt, dass die oben genannten Massnahmen zur Erhoehung der Lagersteifigkeit ideal mittels eines Lagerdesigns auf Basis eines zweireihigen Kegelrollenlagers in Verbindung mit einem flexiblen Kaefig und einem Druckwinkel bis 45 realisiert werden koennen.

    The mutual potential influence of geothermal duplicates and the scientific investigation of the relationship between seismic and hydraulic parameters are investigated in the joint research project 'Geothermal characterization of fractured karst limestone aquifers in the Munich metropolitan area'. Thirteen doublets and triplets being in production or sunk illustrate the great geothermal potential and provide important data on the development of a thermal-hydraulic modeling of the reservoir. 3D seismic Unterhaching, 3D structural model, hydrogeological model and a high-resolution 3D temperature model form the basis of the numerical modeling. Different seismic signatures, seismic attributes and variations in the interval velocities characterize the ground geophysically, and were interpreted under consideration of geological and hydrogeological background information as well as borehole measurements in terms of hydraulically conductive homogeneous areas. For the Munich metropolitan area, the numerical modeling is a decision aid for the future optimized and sustainable hydrothermal utilization of the Malm aquifer.

    To show the specific energy problems in the African countries, the author of this book starts from a global dimension. He uses political field analysis in order to emphasize the basic problems of Cameroon's energy policy. In his opinion, most of the problems of developing countries are caused by an insufficient energy supply. Due to lacking financial means and an immature technology, some of them can neither afford to import petroleum nor to utilize existing energy sources. Therefore, they depend on using wood. Cameroon has several sorts of energy resources which, however, are not being utilized sufficiently. The author tries this to find out to which degree the growth of the population and industrialisation cause the energy need of Cameroon to rise. (orig.)

    The brake system of the new BMW 850i is described in the following. The brake actuation takes place via an hydraulic brake booster. The disc brakes at front and rear axle are arranged in diagnonal brake split. The 4-channel ABS is fitted as standard equipment. The ABS control unit also incorporates the algorithm for the Automatic Stability Control System ASC or ASC+T. The ASC+T shows improved traction compared with the pure stability system ASC and is standard in the BMW 850i with manual gear box. The automatic gear box equipped BMW 850i are supplied with ASC, the ASC+T is available as an option. Both systems, the ASC and the ASC+T are described with special view on the electronical and hydraulical network in the car. A performance comparison of the ASC-systems completes the description.

    The latest MAN truck type L2000 (GVW 7.5 to 11 t) is the first vehicle in this range to be equipped with air actuated disc brakes on both axles. As this product group is subject to extreme price pressure and increased technical requirements, the existing braking system had to be replaced by a new one. The new wheel brake system demonstrates that objectives, especially with regard to vehicle handling and brake performance reserves, were met. At the same time the conditions for applying electronic braking systems were set up and cost targets reached. (orig.) [Deutsch] Beim neuen MAN L2000 mit einem zulaessigen Fahrzeuggewicht von 7,5 bis 11 t handelt es sich um das erste Automobil seiner Klasse, das auf beiden Achsen mit druckluftbetaetigten Scheibenbremsen ausgeruestet ist. Da diese Fahrzeugklasse unter einem hohen Kostendruck steht und die technischen Anforderungen erweitert wurden, musste die vorliegende Bremsenausruestung durch ein neues System ersetzt werden. Das neue Radbremsensystem zeigt, dass die gesteckten Ziele insbesondere in bezug auf Fahrverhalten und Reserven bei der Bremsleistung erreicht werden konnten. Gleichzeitig wurden die Voraussetzungen fuer den Einsatz elektronischer Bremssysteme geschaffen und die Kostenziele erreicht. (orig.)

    In the future energy demand will further increase. Therefore it will be necessary to use also minor fuel qualities. More effort for fuel preparation and flue gas cleaning will be necessary. Some disadvantages may be minimised with new technologies, e.g. integrated gasification combined cycle, fuel change and fuel preparation. Hugh improvements are already achieved in regard to the emissions of the classical components CO, VOC, NOx, SO{sub 2}, Particulate Matter and Mercury. More progress can be expected with optimisation of existing technologies, especially DeNOx-catalysis, catalysis for oxidation of CO and VOC, flue gas desulfurisation, bathhouse filters and electrostatic filters for the reduction of PM and Mercury assisted by adsorbers. Important is a kind of emission limit flexibility, a contribution to the security of supply while using renewable energies and lifetime optimisation. More and more emphasis is put on cost/benefit considerations for a better environment. Measures for CO{sub 2}-Reduction need plant screening and for the efficient exhaust emission reduction fair play in trading emission certificates. (orig.)

    the alliance licences contracted since 2011 has shown that entitled authors make almost no use of their open access rights. Thus, a tremendous amount of scientific literature has yet to be uncovered from publishers’ closed access systems. The project DeepGreen, approved by DFG (based on the 2014 initiative „Open Access Transformation“, seeks to establish a convenient and automated technical infrastructure to support existing open access agreements. The intended scenario is that publishers will be required to deliver periodically all publications eligible for open access through defined interfaces, instead of authors (or their respective libraries having to upload these items manually into corresponding open access repositories. To this end, the members of the project consortium (University Libraries of Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU and TU Berlin, Helmholtz Open Science Office at the German GeoResearch Centre, Bavarian State Library, and two Librarian Network Organizations, BVB and KOBV will build the platform DeepGreen, essentially a dark archive, into which publications and metadata are fed periodically according to the publishers’ contracted alliance licences. In turn, the platform Deep-Green will deliver these publications to the legitimate repositories automatically. Two publishers, Karger Publishers and SAGE Publications, have agreed to pilot the project as associated partners. This paper presents the project and the current status of the work.

Based on qualitatively vali-dated can-do descriptions communication test tasks were formulated and administered to a large sample (N=325. The resulting learner texts were subsequently classified with the help of an analytical rating scale. In addition to discussing the procedure used for the setting of standards the results of a quantitative evaluation of the data are presented.For instance, a multi-facetted Rasch analysis showed that therating criteria ‘lexical range’, ‘grammatical range’ and ‘coherence’ correlated particularly highly and can thus be tentatively interpreted as a single dimension of writing competence.

    This work deals with the development of the prototype of a superconducting CH accelerator structure. The simulations were calculated with the program CST Microwave Studio. It is based on the finite integration theory, which the Maxwell equations in a two-grid matrix form convicted so they can be solved numerically. In another chapter, a method for determining the coupling strength is discussed. The conditions that previously were created for the optimization of the prototype of the superconducting CH structure are described. It was for the optimization of the field distribution on the beam axis by adjusting the end cell design, optimization of support for the magnetic and electric fields, leading to reduction of the quadrupole component of the CH-structure, the coupling and, finally, the possibility of static tuning during the completion of the structure. On the basis of these investigations the completion of an initial prototype superconducting at the company ACCEL in Bergisch Gladbach was commissioned. Finally simulations for an operation accelerator facility, and a look at possible areas of the superconducting CH-structure are presented. The optimizations performed for the high power injector led to a more stable operation of the plant. Through this work it could be shown that the newly-CH structure is very well suited for use in superconducting accelerators. (orig.)

    The aim of the project was to contribute to enhanced service life and reliability of batteries in photovoltaic systems by developing further processes and components for charge measurement. The essential basic information in charge determination is the direct measurement of acid concentration in the electrolyte compartment of lead batteries and the evaluation and processing of this signal. Within the framework of this project, operative acidity sensors were developed and tested. They are accurate within an error margin of 0.5 per cent for short periods and of 2 per cent for long periods. A charge measurement unit based on the acid concentration reading was built and special algorithms for measuring charge were developed and tested. This unit stands out particularly because of the following: determination of dynamic charge, long-term stability, and automatic and regular adaptation to the type, size and age of the battery. Using this unit in combination with the acid concentration sensor in photovoltaic plant will permit more efficient plant operation and reliable protection of the battery. (orig./MM) [Deutsch] Ziel des Vorhabens war es, Massnahmen zur Verbesserung der Lebensdauer und Zuverlaessigkeit von Batterien in PV-Anlagen durch die konkrete Weiterentwicklung von Verfahren und Komponenten zur Ladezustandserfassung aufzuzeigen, durchzufuehren und zu demonstrieren. Die direkte Messung der Saeuredichte im Elektrolytraum von Bleibatterien sowie die Auswertung und Weiterverarbeitung dieses Signals bildet dabei die wesentliche Basisinformation. Im Rahmen des Vorhabens wurden funktionstuechtige Saeuredichtesensoren entwickelt und erprobt. Die dabei erreichte Genauigkeit betraegt im Kurzzeitbereich 0,5% und im Langzeitbereich ca. 2%. Eine Ladezustandseinheit basierend auf dem Saeuredichtesignal wurde aufgebaut und spezielle Algorithmen zur Ladezustandserfassung entwickelt und getestet. Besonders die Bestimmung des dynamischen Ladezustands, die Langzeitstabilitaet sowie die selbstaendige und regelmaessige Adaption an die Batterieeigenschaften Groesse, Typ und Alter zeichnen diese Einheit aus. Der Einsatz der Einheit in Kombination mit dem Saeuredichtesensor in PV-Anlagen wird eine bessere Betriebsfuehrung der gesamten Anlage ermoeglichen und einen sicheren Schutz der Batterie erlauben.

    Moving forward, worldwide goods traffic will continue to see strong growth. The scarcity of fossil fuels and the need for ecologically sustainable mobility are the two main challenges facing goods traffic of the future. Current emission regulations are primarily aimed at pollutants, and have already succeeded in reducing them sharply. With Euro VI, the first commercial vehicle to be almost free of pollutants will be a reality in the European commercial vehicles sector from 2014 onward. Creating incentives to replace old vehicles with new, more efficient ones could boost the effect substantially. Similar progress has been yielded in the maritime traffic segment, though the biggest hurdle is yet to come in the form of IMO Tier III. Retrofit solutions in particular make sense here, given the long lifecycles of ships. The strong focus on pollutants has led to reduction of consumption being neglected. Fuel consumption in the truck industry has stagnated in the last ten years. We desperately need to rethink things here. Solutions to boost efficiency in long-distance truck traffic primarily lie in aerodynamics and optimization of shipping volumes. However, legal restrictions on length need to be eased throughout the whole of Europe in order to leverage major potential for reduction. By contrast, hybrid technology will catch on in the medium term for commercial vehicles in downtown traffic since it allows energy from braking to be recuperated. The use of second-generation biofuels in the commercial vehicles industry and gaseous fuels in the marine sector offer major potential for reducing CO{sub 2}. The technological course has been determined - the diesel engine will play a dominant role in worldwide goods traffic in the future too. (orig.)

    For long-term planning, knowledge about the interrelationship of effects of the cultivation method and the sensitivity of ecological balance is essential. Hence, the objective of this thesis is the development of a method for the evaluation of the impacts of bioenergy crop production for biogas use on the natural environment. The developed method is in alignment with existing methods. It is also in alignment with those methods used within the practice of landscape planning, so that the method as well as the derived conclusions can be implemented into landscape planning practice in the future. The evaluation method has been applied in the three model regions Hildesheim, Soltau-Fallingbostel and Emsland. These test areas represent different physical regions in Lower Saxony and typical agricultural production conditions. On the basis of these results, general statements on the impact of bioenergy crop production on the ecological balance of the area can be made. [German] Grundlage fuer eine vorausschauende Steuerung des Ausbaus erneuerbarer Energien ist die Kenntnis der Zusammenhaenge der Wirkung des Energiepflanzenanbaus und der Empfindlichkeit des Naturhaushaltes. Ziel der Arbeit ist daher die Erarbeitung einer Methode zur umfassenden Bewertung dieser Auswirkungen auf den Naturhaushalt. Die Methode orientiert sich an bereits bestehenden und in der Praxis der Landschaftsplanung angewendeten Bewertungsmethoden, so dass sie ebenso wie die daraus abgeleiteten Schlussfolgerungen zukuenftig Eingang in die Planungspraxis finden kann. Die Bewertungsmethode wird in den drei Modellregionen Hildesheim, Soltau-Fallingbostel und Emsland angewendet, mit denen die verschiedenen Naturraeume und fuer Niedersachsen typischen landwirtschaftlichen Produktionsbedingungen abgebildet werden. Auf Grundlage dieser Ergebnisse koennen dann allgemeine Aussagen zu den Auswirkungen des Energiepflanzenanbaus auf den Naturhaushalt gemacht werden.

    Extensive open-cast mining activities in the Lusatian mining district left approximately 100 mine pits, which have to be reclaimed according to ecological and economical requirements. Cessation of sump drainage causes the rise of groundwater. Depending on the mineralogy of the sediment passed by rising groundwater the quality of groundwater and water of the connected post-mining lakes develop, locally posing high acidification risks to lake waters. As a countermeasure mine pits are flooded using allochthonous slightly alkaline or neutral surface water of the rivers Spree and Schwarze Elster. Beneficial effects comprise the displacement, the dilution and the chemical compensation of acidic groundwaters. However, low specific discharges, competing utilization demands and climatic factors strongly restrict the amount of regional surface water available for flooding. As a consequence, each individual lake's flooding schedule has to be updated and continuously adjusted to new scientific knowledge, changing demands and availability of water. (orig.)

    Future developments in environmental biotechnology and in situ-remediation processes need the understanding and the influencing of the interaction between all components of a biological biocoenosis, especially in biofilm. Better performances concerning the elimination of contaminants could be made possible by the balanced addition of both additional electron acceptors and cosubstrates, in which the studies of the physiological interaction must be studied. The application of physical methods like radio waves are able to support the microbiological processes. The understanding of the interaction between biotic and abiotic processes in contaminated sites is incomplete at the present time. Ecotechnical processes must decrease the time demand of the natural attenuation and remove inhibitions. Phytoremediation is promising; the understanding of the root - microorganism interaction is the basis of new applications. (orig.) [Deutsch] Die zukuenftigen Entwicklungen der Umweltbiotechnologie und der in situ-Sanierungsverfahren sollten durch das Erkennen und die Beeinflussung des Wechselspiels von Biozoenosen insbesondere in Biofilmen bestimmt werden. Leistungssteigerungen des Schadstoffabbaus sind moeglich durch die bilanzierte Zugabe zusaetzlicher Elektronenakzeptoren oder von Kosubstraten, deren physiologische Wirkungsweise erkannt werden muss. Physikalische Massnahmen wie z.B. die Radiowellenanwendung koennen mikrobiologische Prozesse unterstuetzen. Das Wechselspiel biotischer und abiotischer Prozesse in Altlasten ist erst unvollstaendig verstanden. Oekotechnische Prozesse muessen die natuerliche Selbstreinigung beschleunigen oder Inhibitionen aufheben. Die vielversprechenden Methoden der Phytoremediation werden neue Anwendungsgebiete finden, wenn die Wurzelraum-Mikroorganismen-Wechselwirkung verstanden wird. (orig.)

    Positioning the new A6 as a sporty vehicle, which is, at the same time, a comfortable touring limousine, places special demands on the acoustic design and vibrational comfort. Because the characteristics of a vehicle are the result of the interactions of its subassemblies, in the concept phase, the characteristics of the complete vehicle were broken down to the individual modules. Examples of this are the radiation of sound from the engine, airborne noise from the inlet and exhaust systems, and the insulation of the body against airborne noise. (orig.) [German] Die sportliche Positionierung des neuen A6, der zugleich eine komfortable Reiselimousine bleiben sollte, stellte spezielle Anforderungen an die Auslegung von Akustik und Schwingungskomfort. Da ein Fahrzeug seine Eigenschaften durch das Zusammenspiel seiner Baugruppen erhaelt, wurden die Charakteristiken des Gesamtfahrzeugs in der Konzeptphase auf die einzelnen Module heruntergebrochen. Beispiele sind hier die Schallabstrahlung des Motors, der Muendungsschall von Ansaug- und Abgasanlage und die Luftschalldaemmung der Karosserie. (orig.)

    In this research project, from the many electrically conducting polymers synthesized during the last few years, a selection were to be tested for their suitability as active electrode material. It was necessary to examine various combinations of electrodes and electrolytes for their electrochemical properties for this purpose (polyacetylene, polythiophene, poly (3-methyl) tiophene, polyparaphenylene, phthalocyanine, polypyrol, poly (1.1 to 2 thienyl) ferrocene). Apart from the technical tests, the mechanisms of the electrochemical reactions had to be cleared up as far as possible. For example, it was to be made clear which reactions led to the quite high self-discharge rates of those polymer electrode materials. From these basic investigations, a selection was to be made of technically interesting materials and battery systems. The next step was building laboratory samples, which were intended to make a realistic estimate of the competitiveness of these systmes with the secondary batteries now on the market possible from the energy and power densities achieved.

    The mobility of radionuclides and heavy metals in aqueous systems depends significantly on their oxidation state. Under saline conditions the measurement of pH values and redox potential are distorted/falsified by solution-specific and hardly assessable ion diffusion effects at the reference electrode. The secure prognosis of redox properties is an essential prerequisite for the calculation of the expected heavy metal and radionuclide concentrations in case of a hypothetical solution ingress in an underground disposal facility. The evaluation of the existing data base shows that there are large uncertainties even for the solubility of widespread oxides and oxy-hydroxides like goethite or hematite. The redox properties of natural systems are determined by the solubility of metastable ferrous intermediate products like ferrihydrite, ''green rust'' or jarosite. The work is aimed to establish a consistent data base with information on these phases and ferrous solute species.

    Waters on aboveground and underground landfills often contain high concentrations of pollutants like zinc, lead and cadmium. Interactions between wastes and aqueous solutions could lead to a mobilisation of these elements. If their maximum solubilities are to be predicted by geochemical modelling a thermodynamic data base is needed. Due to the lack of experimental data such a data base could not be developed yet. In order to fill the gaps isopiestic as well as solubility measurements were made at 25 C. Furthermore the complex formation of zinc and cadmium was investigated and quantified by means of Raman spectrometry and evolving factor analysis. It could be proven that only complexes with two and four chlorine atoms achieve significant concentrations. On basis of these results and a critical evaluation of literature data a consistent thermodynamic data base for was developed for the calculation of activity coefficients and solubilities in the system Na, K, Mg, Ca, Zn, Cd, Cl, SO{sub 4}-H{sub 2}O at 298,15 K.

The largest publicity founded German oxyfuel project is the so-called OXYCOAL-AC project, where 6 institutes from RWTH Aachen University and 5 industrial partners collaborate in the development of a CO{sub 2}-free coal combustion power plant cycle. This will be achieved by sing pure oxygen and recirculated CO{sub 2} for the combustion process. The oxygen is provided by a high temperature ceramic membrane module, which separates oxygen from an air feed flow. The challenges of this project and the related research topics are presented by discussing the main components of the OXYCOAL-AC cycle. While this description of the cycle is based on a 400 MW reference power plant, its realisation at the existing test facility at RWTH Aachen University will also be explained. Finally, an outlook on future activities is presented. (orig.)

    1990-01-01

    The development and process optimization up to the production stage of a vapour sterilizable hollow-fiber membrane reactor for dialysis is illustrated by the example of enzymatic hydrolysis of lactose. The expected conversion efficiency of the membrane reactor is a function of the mass transfer resistance and by the deviations from the defined hydrodynamic status. The transport/reaction behaviour of membrane reactors is therefore described by a model for real reactors which takes account of the non-linear kinetics of the native enzyme, the real mixing conditions inside the reactor, and the mass transfer through the membrane. A coupled numerical solution is used for the calculations. The reaction kinetics, the mass transfer inside the membrane, the hydrodynamics and the conversion rate are determined experimentally. The model can calculate important design data from selected data of the reaction system. Measurements of conversion rates show that the results obtained with real substances, e.g. milk, are well compatible with the model calculations. (orig.) With 85 figs., 25 tabs.

    The Ruhr area has advanced to the largest university region in Germany - often unnoticed within and outside. At the same time scientific institutions have become a major economic factor. Because of the higher and extra-university research institutions about 2.5 billion euros are effective as a demand potential in the region. 1.7 billion euros of this amount are directly associated with investments and operating expenditures of the scientific institutions as well as consumptions of employees and students. Additional 770 million euros result in revenues of many branches such as trade, housing, gastronomy sector, handcraft industry etc. It should not be underestimated that higher and extra-university research institutions generate with their research activities particular funding from the European Union or the rest of Germany for benefit of the region. Each euro spent by the state government for basic funding creates 39 cents third-party funding. These regional-economic effects result in noticeable employment impacts within the region. Around 25,000 people are directly employed in higher and extra-university research institutes or student unions (Studierendenwerke), about 22,000 jobs in other economic sectors are ensured or created by the induced demand. Science has thus become an important economic factor and represents an essential counterbalance to employment decline in shrinking industries of the region. The specific inclusion of science in a regional development strategy and targeted relining with appropriate measures to strengthen the science creates therefore an effective starting point for the design of structural change.

    Based on the reactor dynamics code DYN3D for the simulation of transient processes in Light Water Reactors, a code version DYN3D-HTR for application to graphitemoderated, gas-cooled block-type high temperature reactors has been developed. This development comprises: - the methodical improvement of the 3D steady-state neutron flux calculation for the hexagonal geometry of the HTR fuel element blocks - the development of methods for the generation of homogenised cross section data taking into account the double heterogeneity of the fuel element block structure - the implementation of a 3D model for heat conduction and heat transport in the graphite matrix. The nodal method for neutron flux calculation based on SP3 transport approximation was extended to hexagonal fuel element geometry, where the hexagons are subdivided into triangles, thus the method had finally to be derived for triangular geometry. In triangular geometry, a subsequent subdivision of the hexagonal elements can be considered, and therefore, the effect of systematic mesh refinement can be studied. The algorithm was verified by comparison with Monte Carlo reference solutions, on the node-wise level, as well as also on the pin-wise level. New procedures were developed for the homogenization of the double-heterogeneous fuel element structures. One the one hand, the so-called Reactivity equivalent Physical Transformation (RPT), the two-step homogenization method based on 2D deterministic lattice calculations, was extended to cells with different temperatures of the materials. On the other hand, the progress in development of Monte Carlo methods for spectral calculations, in particular the development of the code SERPENT, opened a new, fully consistent 3D approach, where all details of the structures on fuel particle, fuel compact and fuel block level can be taken into account within one step. Moreover, a 3D heat conduction and heat transport model was integrated into DYN3D to be able to simulate radial and axial heat transfer within the graphite matrix. The extended DYN3D model was tested on simulations of selected reactivity transients, in particular control rod ejection, overcooling and mass flow transients. The plausibility of the results was checked against solutions with only 1D modelling of heat transport. Last but not least, DYN3D has been coupled with the CFD code ANSYS-CFX to be able to simulate even 3D coolant flow in reactor cores. The core is modelled in porous body approximation, because the modelling of all details on fuel rod level is too expensive with respect to computer resources. The code coupling was tested on different sample cases for quadratic and hexagonal fuel assembly structure, in particular the ejection of a control rod and a local flow blockage of one or more fuel assembly.

    The challenge of sustainable development in the coal mining industry consists of continuous guarantee of the aims of economic viability, security of supply, compatibility with the environment and social interests. Sustainable development of the coal industry is thus a complex large system, which consists of four partial systems, viz. economy, society, environment and resources of the coal fields. It is based on the coordinated development of these four partial systems. To investigate quantitatively the state of the coal industry in China and the future trends for its sustainable development, an evaluation indicator system consisting of target, criterion and indicator level was formulated in this contribution. According to the structure of the indicator system two evaluation models were developed, viz. fuzzy model based on the AHP method (AHP = Analytical Hierarchy Process) and a model with the aid of main component analysis. With regard to the historical data of the indicators the sustainable development of the coal industry in China was evaluated with the aid of the development models. (orig.)

    This thesis describes the development of a high resolution magnetic calorimeter for the detection of the {beta}-spectrum of the isotope {sup 36}Cl with endpoint energy of 709.6 keV. The temperature rise of a metallic paramagnetic sensor due to an energy deposition is sensed by measuring its magnetization using a sensitive DC-SQUID magnetometer. For a high detection efficiency an 4{pi} gold absorber was used. The heat capacity and the geometry of the absorber is optimally matched by a flat sensor and an optimized meander shaped readout coil. The fabrication of the superconducting structures and the detector setup are described. In addition, the relevant noise sources, the energy resolution and the quantum efficiency are discussed. A measured {sup 36}Cl-spectrum with an energy resolution of {delta}E{sub FWHM}=750 eV is presented and compared with existing experimental and theoretical data. (orig.)

    Emissions trading in the context of the Kyoto Protocol becomes increasingly important for solid waste management projects in developing and emerging countries. Compared with the emissions of the applied so called ''baseline'' in such countries, significant reductions of one of the most harmful greenhouse gases, methane, can be realized just by means of collecting and treating (controlled combustion) landfill gas. Even stronger reductions can be achieved by means of pre-treating of solid wastes. Revenues generated by sales of emission-reductions can cover up to 20-30% of the cost of an environmentally sound solid waste management system. However advanced solid waste technologies can currently only be applied under specific conditions (e.g. in Metropolitan cities) due to the limited willingness and ability of the waste producers to pay higher fees required by such systems.

    Full Text Available In science and especially in medicine, ebooks have become more and more important during the last years. Having a cooperation with the author of one of the leading books of internal medicine in Germany, the idea came up to publish his book in a version for PDA. As by now, there is no satisfying solution for this. The existing products are either made for belletristic or they have no sufficient copy protection or both. This led to the decision of creating an own software to meet market needs. The result of this process is SciReader (short form for "scientific ebook reader", a software for the technique of the new millennium.

    In the frame of the radiation protection law (version 2017) the medical exposure has a special exceptional position because even in case of profound radiation protection measures the annual dose limit of 1 mSv is very often surmounted. The acting radiologist using ionizing radiation or radioactive materials within diagnostic or therapeutic nuclear medicine has a high responsibility with respect to benefit or hazard of the planned exposure. Especially in the cases of children, pregnant women or persons with high radiation sensitivity the consideration of radiation hazards is of eminent importance.

    Despite the importance of peatlands for climate mitigation, there is only very limited experience regarding the systematic integration of peatland conservation and restoration and climate mitigation. This study aims to analyse if and to what extent voluntary emission certificates in the framework of a German national peatland fund could foster such an approach. For this purpose, the paper is structured as follows: Chapter 1 introduces the legal framework of climate mitigation policies and presents the specific characteristics of peatland conservation and restoration. The most important differences to related forest conservation and afforestation measures are discussed. Chapter 2 analyses in detail eight selected funds for peatland and forest conservation and restoration which already exist or are currently planned. The analysis is structured along the following elements: project type, standards, methodology and certifiers, target groups and buyers, financing, and institutional set-up. Based on the previous analysis, chapter 3 discusses the conceptual design options for a prospective national fund for peatland restoration. Finally, chapter 4 makes recommendations regarding the relevant design options. For the German context, it is paramount to include existing initiatives on the Laender level and to address needs for coordination (such as a standardized methodology) on a national level. Regarding financing, the most adequate approach appears to be a combination of both private and public funding in order to overcome entry barriers of a model that links peatland conservation and restoration on the one side and climate mitigation on the other.

    The mobility of radionuclides and heavy metals in aqueous systems depends significantly on their oxidation state. Under saline conditions the measurement of pH values and redox potential are distorted/falsified by solution-specific and hardly assessable ion diffusion effects at the reference electrode. The secure prognosis of redox properties is an essential prerequisite for the calculation of the expected heavy metal and radionuclide concentrations in case of a hypothetical solution ingress in an underground disposal facility. The evaluation of the existing data base shows that there are large uncertainties even for the solubility of widespread oxides and oxy-hydroxides like goethite or hematite. The redox properties of natural systems are determined by the solubility of metastable ferrous intermediate products like ferrihydrite, ''green rust'' or jarosite. The work is aimed to establish a consistent data base with information on these phases and ferrous solute species.

    2000-01-01

    This thesis describes the conception and implementation of the hybrid FPGA/CPU based processing system ATLANTIS as trigger processor for the proposed ATLAS experiment at CERN. CompactPCI provides the close coupling of a multi FPGA system and a standard CPU. The system is scalable in computing power and flexible in use due to its partitioning into dedicated FPGA boards for computation, I/O tasks and a private communication. Main focus of the research activities based on the usage of the ATLANTIS system are two areas in the second level trigger (LVL2). First, the acceleration of time critical B physics trigger algorithms is the major aim. The execution of the full scan TRT algorithm on ATLANTIS, which has been used as a demonstrator, results in a speedup of 5.6 compared to a standard CPU. Next, the ATLANTIS system is used as a hardware platform for research work in conjunction with the ATLAS readout systems. For further studies a permanent installation of the ATLANTIS system in the LVL2 application testbed is f...

    This paper considers the most important aspects of battery storage dimensioning and placement from the perspective of distribution networks and microgrids with decentralized supply to avoid voltage deviations and equipments overloading. The use cases of battery storages define how they should be designed and installed in microgrids. This can be done through simulating different scenarios for the operation of batteries in microgrids. In this paper a developed optimization tool is introduced. Using this optimizing tool in together with PSS registered SINCAL enables the user to analyze different application areas of battery storage systems in microgrids for different purposes such as minimization of equipment loading, voltage deviation and electrical losses. The introduced program is capable of evaluating and integrating different existing solutions, so that they could be extended to an easy-to-use optimization tool. Finally, a typical microgrid will be demonstrated, where a battery for the purpose of network support has been installed. This microgrid is used for testing and verification of the developed tool.

    Liao, Y.; Lucas, D.

    2013-02-15

    A new generalized model for bubble coalescence and breakup has been developed. It is based on physical considerations and takes into account various mechanisms that can lead to bubble coalescence and breakup. First, in a detailed literature review, the available models were compiled and analyzed. It turned out that many of them show a contradictory behaviour. None of these models allows the prediction of the evolution of bubble size distributions along a pipe flow for a wide range of combinations of flow rates of the gas and the liquid phase. The new model has been extensively studied in a simplified Test-Solver. Although this does not cover all details of a developing flow along the pipe, it allows - in contrast to a CFD code - to conduct a large number of variational calculations to investigate the influence of individual sizes and models. Coalescence and breakup cannot be considered separately from other phenomena and models that reflect these phenomena. There are close interactions with the turbulence of the liquid phase and the momentum exchange between phases. Since the dissipation rate of turbulent kinetic energy is a direct input parameter for the new model, the turbulence modelling has been studied very carefully. To validate the model, a special experimental series for air-water flows was used, conducted at the TOPFLOW facility in an 8-meter long DN200 pipe. The data are characterized by high quality and were produced within the TOPFLOW-II project. The test series aims to provide a basis for the work presented here. Predicting the evolution of the bubble size distribution along the pipe could be improved significantly in comparison to the previous standard models for bubble coalescence and breakup implemented in CFX. However some quantitative discrepancies remain. The full model equations as well as an implementation as ''User-FORTRAN'' in CFX are available and can be used for further work on the simulation of poly-disperse bubbly flows.

    The specific emission factor of the German fuel mix is calculated from the direct CO2 emissions of electric power generation and from the net electric power available for end use consumption. The emission factor was reduced between 1990 and 2005, owing to higher efficiencies of modernized power plants and to a bigger share of renewable energy sources. The brochure, published by the Federal Environmental Office, presents trends and diagrams.

    A new kind of eddy current sensor is presented, which uses the optical Faraday effect for eddy current detection. First results already emphasise the strongly increased spatial resolution in eddy current testing by integrating these detectors in conventional transmitting coils. Basic principle of this enormously improved resolution is the use of laser beams and small faraday rotators, which allow a point-like measurement of the magnetic field at the surface of a component. Lateral and axial extend of the measuring volume can be reduced in the range of microns - much smaller than conventional receiving coils. (orig.) [Deutsch] Es wird ein neuartiger Wirbelstromsensor vorgestellt, der auf dem optischen Faradayeffekt zur Wirbelstromdetektion beruht. Erste Untersuchungsergebnisse verdeutlichen die enorme Steigerung des Ortsaufloesungsvermoegens der Wirbelstrompruefung durch Integration dieser Detektoren in konventionelle Erregerspulen. Grundlage der verbesserten Ortsaufloesung ist der Einsatz von Lasern und kleinen Faradayrotatoren, mit deren Hilfe die Messung von Magnetfeldern an Bauteiloberflaechen nahezu punktfoermig erfolgen kann. Die laterale und axiale Ausdehnung des Messvolumens kann bis in den Mikrometerbereich reduziert werden und ist somit um Groessenordnungen kleiner als bei herkoemmlichen Empfangsspulen. (orig.)

    For the declaration of the nuclide-inventory of bituminous waste there are currently no standardized sampling-, dissolving- and analysis methods such as for cemented waste, resins and sludge is the case. The aim of this project was to develop a method for the destructive sampling and subsequent radionuclide separation and declaration for the characterization of bituminized waste. The qualitative and quantitative results of non-destructive measurement methods (segmented gamma scanning in combination with digital radiography and gamma transmission computed tomography) are compared with results from destructive analysis. The project involves: - the development of a routine method for sampling bituminized 200-L-waste containers, exemplarily applied to real drums with bituminized waste. - the development of destructive treatment and preparation methods for the obtained bitumen samples with subsequent analysis for: - Alpha emitters, e.g. Pu-, Am- and Cm-isotopes, - Beta/Gamma emitters, e.g. Co-60, Cs-137, - pure Beta emitters, e.g. Sr-90. - Comparison of the results from destructive and non-destructive methods.

    Until the 1980s, bitumen was used as a conditioning agent for weak to medium radioactive liquid waste. Its use can be ascribed mainly to the properties that indicated that the matrix was optimal. However, fires broke out repeatedly during the conditioning process, so that the method is meanwhile no longer permitted in Germany. There are an estimated 100 waste packages held by the public authorities in Germany that require a supplementary declaration. In contrast to the common matrices, such as for example resins or sludges, there is still no standardized technology for taking samples and subsequently determining the radio-nuclide for bitumen. Aspects, such as the thermoplastic behaviour, make determining the nuclide inventory more difficult in bituminized waste packages. The development of a standardized technology to take samples with a subsequent determination of the radio-nuclide analysis is the objective of a project funded by the BMBF. Known, new methods, specially developed for the project, are examined on inactive bitumen samples and then transferred to active samples. At first non-destructive methods are used. The resulting information forms an important basis to work out and apply destructive strategy for sampling and analysis. Since the project is on-going, this report can only address the development of the sampling process. By developing a sampling system, it will be possible to take samples from an arbitrary selected location of the package across the entire matrix level and thus gain representative analysis material. The process is currently being optimized. (orig.)

    Apart from reliability and quality, vehicle safety and cost efficiency are the decisive criteria for automobile manufacturers. Corrosion protection plays a decisive role because it increases the service life. The ultra-high-strength steels are materials which exhibit high lightweight potential as well as a very good energy absorption capacity because of their mechanical properties. In connection with the possibility of hot forming, they are predestined for the fabrication of complicated, load-compatible shapes in the crash-relevant frame and body construction. The application of these steel qualities has been carried out in structural parts which are protected from corrosion by a hot-dip coat of FeAl7 - the so-called Usibor. However, at the moment there is no ready-for-production solution for later corrosion protection of already hot-formed parts. Therefore, a corrosion protection system on the basis of conventional low-temperature galvanizing processes has been developed and utilized. First, the softening behavior of the highly-resistant 22MnB5 substrate was analyzed. Afterwards, a galvanizing system was developed and applied. The corrosion protection coatings were characterized with regard to their structure and corrosion protection potential. As a result, a significant improvement of the corrosion behaviour has occurred.

[German] Neben Zuverlaessigkeit und Qualitaet sind vor allem Fahrzeugsicherheit und Wirtschaftlichkeit entscheidende Kriterien fuer den Automobilhersteller. Der Korrosionsschutz spielt dabei eine herausragende Rolle, da hierdurch die Lebens- und Gebrauchsdauer erhoeht wird. Mit der Bereitstellung hoechstfester Stahlqualitaeten stehen Werkstoffe zur Verfuegung, die auf Grund ihrer mechanischen Eigenschaften ein hohes Leichtbaupotenzial sowie ein sehr gutes Energieabsorptionsvermoegen aufweisen. In Verbindung mit der Moeglichkeit der Warmformgebung sind sie damit praedestiniert fuer die Herstellung komplizierter, beanspruchungsgerechter Formen im crashrelevanten Karosseriebereich. Der Einsatz dieser Stahlqualitaeten erfolgt bislang in Strukturbauteilen, die mit einem Schmelztauchueberzug aus FeAl7, sog. Usibor, vor Korrosion geschuetzt sind. Jedoch besteht zurzeit keine serienreife Loesung fuer den nachtraeglichen Korrosionsschutz von bereits warmumgeformten Bauteilen. Deshalb wurde ein Korrosionsschutzsystem auf Basis des herkoemmlichen Schmelztauchverzinkungsprozesses entwickelt und appliziert. Zunaechst wurde das Entfestigungsverhalten des hoechstfesten Substrats 22MnB5 analysiert. Anschliessend wurde ein Legierungssystem entwickelt und appliziert. Die so entstandenen Korrosionsschutzschichten wurden hinsichtlich ihrer Struktur und des Korrosionsschutzpotenzials charakterisiert. Im Ergebnis tritt eine deutliche Verbesserung des Korrosionsverhaltens ein. (Abstract Copyright [2008], Wiley Periodicals, Inc.)

    In order to minimize the further increase of CO{sub 2}-content in the atmosphere, efforts are made to separate and store CO{sub 2} from exhaust gases of fossil power plants. Beside well-established separation techniques like chemical scrubber, the application of membrane technology is intensively investigated. One focus of this thesis is the development of metal supported substrates for microporous ceramic gas separation membranes, which are expected to have a higher mechanical stability than ceramic supported substrates. Starting with commercial porous steel substrates, interlayers are applied by wet powder spraying. For the interlayers the materials 1.4404-stainless steel and TiO{sub 2} or 1.4845-stainless steel and yttria stabilized zirconia (8YSZ) are chosen. The interlayers have to be defect-free, as minimal defects can deteriorate the membrane performance. By a subsequent mechanical treatment and an adjustment of the viscosity of the 8YSZ-suspension, the surface quality is considerably increased. At the same time the limits of the wet powder spraying process become obvious, as sporadic agglomerates, which are formed during the spraying process, cannot be totally avoided. The metal supported substrates are characterized regarding to the interaction between steel and ceramic, the roughness of the layers compared to polished ceramic substrates, the mechanical properties and the flow through the substrates. Furthermore microporous ceramic gas separation membranes are deposited on wet powder sprayed and dip coated substrates. The selectivity of these membranes is above Knudsen selectivity. The other focus of the thesis is the exposure of substrates and membranes to real flue gas conditions. Beside microporous ceramic membranes polymer membranes are analysed as a reference, which show a higher state of development compared to microporous ceramic membranes. For this purpose a test bed is built up in the EnBW ''Rheinhafendampfkraftwerk RDK 7'' after the flue gas desulfurization plant. It is operated for a maximum time of 1600 h with polymer and microporous ceramic membranes. In several iterations with longer periods of time the test bed is optimized and automated so that long term measurements with continuous data recording are possible. The results show that the formation of a filter cake from gypsum and fly ash on the gas separation membrane reduces the mass flow through the membranes. The used steel alloys 1.4404 and 1.4845 show after exposure to flue gas for more than 1000 h first signs of corrosion. In the case of polymer membranes an enrichment of the CO{sub 2} content in the permeate to the range of 40Vol.-% to 57Vol.-% can be demonstrated. After more than 1000 h exposure the polymer membranes showed irreversible defects, which inhibit gas separation. The results of the thesis are important basis for the further development of gas separation membranes for CO{sub 2} separation from fossil-fired power plants, as for the first time the boundary conditions for membranes in the flue gas are characterized. Furthermore first hints regarding the stability of the used membrane materials in the flue gas are given, which will contribute to follow-up activities. (orig.)

    Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) has been established as a versatile tool for probing and labeling in analytical applications, based on the vibrational spectra of samples as well as label molecules in the proximity of noble metal nanostructures. The aim of this work was the construction of novel SERS hybrid probes. The hybrid probes consisted of Au and Ag nanoparticles and reporter molecules, as well as a targeting unit. The concept for the SERS hybrid probe design was followed by experiments comprising characterization techniques such as UV/Vis-spectroscopy (UV/Vis), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), respectively. SERS experiments were performed for studying and optimizing the plasmonic properties of nanoparticles with respect to their enhancement capabilities. The SERS-probes had to meet following requirements: biocompatibility, stability in physiological media, and enhancement of Raman-signals from Raman reporter molecules enabling the identification of different probes even in a complex biological environment. Au and Ag nanoaggregates were found to be the most appropriate SERS substrates for the hybrid probe design. The utilization of Raman reporters enabled the identification of different SERS probes in multiplexing experiments. In particular, the multiplexing capability of ten various reporter molecules para-aminobenzenethiol, 2-naphthalenethiol, crystal violet, rhodamine (B) isothiocyanate, fluorescein isothiocyanate, 5,5'dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoic acid), para-mercaptobenzoic acid, acridine orange, safranine O und nile blue was studied using NIR-SERS excitation. As demonstrated by the results the reporters could be identified through their specific Raman signature even in the case of high structural similarity. Chemical separation analysis of the reporter signatures was performed in a trivariate approach, enabling the discrimination through an automated calculation of specific band ratios. The trivariate identification could be a promising method for SERS-multiplexing in analytical applications. Multivariate methods such as Principal Components Analysis (PCA) and Hierarchical Cluster Analysis (HCA) were as well applied for discrimination and imaging of the reporter signatures. With the help of multivariate imaging methods based on cluster analysis, it could be for the first time demonstrated that such methods provided a fast identification of various SERS hybrid probes inside the biological matrix, this was demonstrated using living 3T3 cells. Further, in a duplex imaging approach, the probes fulfill the requirements for the sensitive detection of both the specific reporter signatures and intrinsic information coming from eukaryotic cells. The results of cluster methods and principal components approaches for discrimination indicate that fast, multivariate evaluation of whole sets of multiple probes is feasible, beyond the visual inspection of individual spectra that has been practiced so far. This suggests multiplexing applications with SERS hybrid nanoprobes and SERS tags in very high density sensing and biological imaging applications, where fast read-out is required. The pH-sensitivity of SERS-Tags that consisted of different reporter molecules attached to aggregated Au and Ag nanoparticles in the range between pH{approx}3-10 was studied. It could be demonstrated that the reporter molecules provided pH-dependent SERS signatures and could therefore be suitable for the sensitive pH-detection, e.g., inside cellular compartments. The construction of targeted SERS probes was based on the integration of a goat-anti-mouse antibody as targeting element Antibodies were coupled to Au and Ag nanoprobes surrounded by a Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) coating which served as a carrier for the covalent linkage of a Raman reporter molecule and the targeting units at the same time In experiments with BSA and a conjugated reporter the spectra of the BSA-coupled re- porters provided an indication of the secondary structure of BSA which is related to the BSA-reporter coupling procedure In in vitro-experiments with BSA-coupled nanoprobes inside 3T3 cells reporter signatures and intrinsic information from the cellular matrix could be delivered BSA enabled the coupling of reporter molecules as well as the targeting of antibodies and served as stabilizer of the gold nanoaggregates The functionality of the coupled antibodies after their integration into the SERS probe was retained This was verified by the results of a direct Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) Conjugates with implemented reporter molecules could be characterized using SERS The application of the complete probes suggested a use of these novel biocompatible stable and targeted SERS probes that can be excited out-of-resonance also for other bioanalytical applications. On the basis of the constructed SERS hybrid probes comprising a large number of BSA-coupled reporters could eg be implemented for automated high-throughput immuno-assays where they are arranged on a microstructured device for the simultaneous and multilevel SERS-readout in one step.

    In wastewater treatment of heavy metal containing fluids it is common practice to use soluble sulfides as precipitants. To run a stable system and ensure a complete reaction it is necessary to control the excess of sulfide continuously. There are diverse analytical methods to determine sulfide in aqueous solutions. Most of these techniques require a calibration or show a serious dependency on matrix effects. An argentometric precipitation titration is proved to be the best choice for the adverse ambience of high salts and solid containing fluids at an online analysis. The modular online System Metrohm ADI 2040 was tailored to the particular needs. The detection system is based on a combined platinum electrode with pH reference working in alkaline ammonia buffer. The system turns out to be unsusceptible to most matrix influences such as high concentrations of diverse anions and cat ions, flocking agents or up to a certain particle content. Below 3 mg/L the bigger part of results lies outside of {+-}20 % of the reference value. The accuracy enhances with increasing concentration. Solutions up to 10 mg/L sulfide show good reproducibility and analytical results. (orig.)

    Cracks, which trace back to damaging during the manufacturing process, are often the origin of the failure of structures. The collapse of safety-relevant parts results in perilous situations for human beings. Therefore, the fracture mechanical assessment of these structures becomes more important in the dimensioning process. For this purpose numerical tools are required. In presence of cyclic loading conditions fatigue crack propagation is very critical, because crack growth occurs for lower stresses compared to static loadings. Due to the non-linear nature of crack growth an incremental procedure has to be applied for the simulation of crack propagation. Each increment starts with a complete stress analysis including the determination of the fracture mechanical parameters along the crack front. Then, the 3D crack growth criterion is evaluated for the calculation of the crack extension and the kink angle. Finally, the discretization is adjusted to the new crack geometry for the next incremental loop. For the stress analysis the boundary element method (BEM) in terms of the collocation technique is applied. The BEM has been proven as an efficient numerical tool for stress concentration problems. Moreover, the modification of the mesh during the simulation of crack propagation is easier by using boundary elements compared to volume orientated methods. By the application of the adaptive cross approximation the numerical complexity of the stress analysis is reduced significantly. In the framework of the dual discontinuity method the discontinuities of the displacements and the tractions are used directly as primary variables at the crack. Therewith 3D crack surface contact using a penalty formulation is taken into account for the forst time within this work. The simulation of crack growth is implemented in the framework of a predictor-corrector-scheme. This method ensures high accuracy with respect to the location and shape of the numerically determined crack fronts. Furthermore, it can be utilized for steady state as well as transient loading conditions. In addition, nonproportional mixed model loadings are also treatable, which arise from crack surface contact. Beside crack growth, rupture due to static overload is an important topic. Here, elastic-plastic stress analyzes have to carried out for the determination of the maximum load. Since volume discretization of 3D structures with arbitrary crack geometries is very complicated the BEM is also utilized for this task. Indeed, a volume discretization is required for the elastic-plastic stress analysis with the BEM. However, only the inelastic domain has to be meshed that can be encased by simple geometries. Therefore, the advantage of the BEM concerning the discretization is reduced only slightly. The results of the crack growth simulation as well as of the elastic-plastic stress analysis are utilized for a general assessment according to the failure assessment diagram, that includes altogether safety against brittle fracture, ductile fracture and plastic collapse. The accuracy of the numerical tool is shown on selected specimens. Furthermore, the influence of the crack surface roughness is analyzed and the industrial applicability is demonstrated on a complex real structure. (orig.)

    In the present master thesis the development oa an automatic validation system for the simulation code ERO is documented. This 3D Monte-carlo code models the transport of impurities as well as plasma-wall interaction processes and has great importance for the fusion research. The validation system is based on JuBE (Julich Benchmarking Environment), the flexibility of which allows a slight extension of the system to other codes, for instance such, which are operated in the framework of the EU Task Force ITM (Integrated Tokamak Modelling). The chosen solution - JuBE and a special program for the ''intellectual'' comparison of actual and reference-edition data of ERO is described and founded. The use of this program and the configuration of JuBE are detailedly described. Simulations to different plasma experiments, which serve as reference cases for the automatic validation, are explained. The working of the system is illustrated by the description of a test case. This treats the failure localization and improvement in the parallelization of an important ERO module (tracking of physically eroded particle). It is demonstrated, how the system reacts in an erroneous validation and the subsequently performed error correction leads to a positive result. Finally a speed-up curve of the parallelization is established by means of the output data of JuBE.

    Supply potentials of German and European producers of goods and services for the protection of environment and climate have been accessed in a study by DIW, FhG-ISI and Roland Berger (2007). The present study explores a simple methodology to supplement such supply oriented assessments by a projection of world wide demand for environmental and climate protection goods and services (ECPGS) and to determine the share directed at German and European producers. The analysis starts from assumptions about world economic growth disaggregated by 175 countries. For each country the presumed importance of environmental protection - disaggregated by 4 areas - is described by its expected GDP share of environmental protection expenditures; rich countries devote more of their GDP than poor countries to environmental and climate protection. Environmental protection expenditure is delimited in this study in accordance with the rather traditional classification of Eurostat which only includes measures directly aimed at the reduction of pollution or other environmental pressures but excludes measures to allow for a more rational use of natural ressources. Combining this information yields an estimate of the world market of ECPGS. By adjusting statistical information on overall import shares of the 175 countries to account for the particularities of ECPGS, world imports (i.e. world trade) of ECPGS can be estimated. World market shares of German and EU suppliers of ECPGS have been derived from OECD trade statistics. Applying these to the estimates of world trade of ECPGS yields German an EU exports of ECPGS. Together with domestic demand less imports, total domestically effective demand in Germany and the EU results. To account for uncertainties, a number sensitivity analyses have been performed. They assume e.g. a less pronounced shift of growth centres to Asia, differently focussed expenditure, and reduced world market shares of Germany and Europe. Even under the assumption of a limited increase of worldwide expenditure for environmental and climate protection, the effective demand in Germany for ECPGS will increase by 2,7% p.a. at constant prices, resulting in a share in GDP of 3.1% in 2020; this increase is the result of an export growth of 10% p.a. Assuming a more dynamic development of world wide environmental and climate protection expenditure, German exports of ECPGS would increase by 20% p.a., yielding a growth of effective domestic and foreign demand in Germany by 7% p.a. and a share of ECPGS in GDP of 4,8%. The results of the scenario analyses are as follows: The demand in Germany for ECPGS significantly increases over the period to 2020. Under certain conditions, German exports of EPGS could be significantly reduced, however, as is illustrated by sensitivity analyses. Effective demand in Germany is particularly sensitive to assumptions about the regional structure of world demand for EPGS and about losses of world market shares of Germany. For an ecologically oriented industrial policy in Germany the following conclusions result: - The future development of demand for ECPGS in Germany will crucially depend on exports. A slowdown of worldwide economic integration would significantly affect the German ECPGS industry. - Even slight reductions of world market shares would considerably affect German producers; a loss of each percentage point of world market share in 2020 would reduce German exports by 5%. - The expected shift of growth centres to Asia will significantly reduce export chances of German produces unless strategies are developed to increase market shares in this region. - Even as European markets will loose importance for German exporters as Asian and US markets gain weight, the former will still account for about half of German exports of ECPGS in 2020. - Due to the weight of exports relative to domestic demand, even as Germany's exports of ECPGS develop as dynamically as projected, effective demand in Germany will only increase more than proportionally to GDP if the share of domestic expenditures in GDP remains at its present level. - Further dynamic market potentials can be opened up in green future markets beyond the traditional delimitation of environmental goods and services use in this study.

    This report documents the status of the research and development goals reached within the reactor safety research project RS1503 ''Development and Application of Neutron Transport Methods and Uncertainty Analyses for Reactor Core Calculations'' as of the 1{sup st} quarter of 2013. The superordinate goal of the project is the development, validation, and application of neutron transport methods and uncertainty analyses for reactor core calculations. These calculation methods will mainly be applied to problems related to the core behaviour of light water reactors and innovative reactor concepts. The contributions of this project towards achieving this goal are the further development, validation, and application of deterministic and stochastic calculation programmes and of methods for uncertainty and sensitivity analyses, as well as the assessment of artificial neutral networks, for providing a complete nuclear calculation chain. This comprises processing nuclear basis data, creating multi-group data for diffusion and transport codes, obtaining reference solutions for stationary states with Monte Carlo codes, performing coupled 3D full core analyses in diffusion approximation and with other deterministic and also Monte Carlo transport codes, and implementing uncertainty and sensitivity analyses with the aim of propagating uncertainties through the whole calculation chain from fuel assembly, spectral and depletion calculations to coupled transient analyses. This calculation chain shall be applicable to light water reactors and also to innovative reactor concepts, and therefore has to be extensively validated with the help of benchmarks and critical experiments.

    On 17th December 2008 the German Federal Cabinet adopted the German Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change (DAS: Deutsche Anpassungsstrategie) (BUNDESREGIERUNG 2008). The DAS has created the framework for adapting to the consequences of climate change in Germany. First and foremost, the DAS contributes its guidelines at Federal level, to provide guidance for agents at other levels. The Strategy lays the foundation for a medium-term process. In conjunction with the individual Federal States and other groups representing various sectors of society, the Strategy provides a step-by-step assessment of the risks of climate change. Furthermore, it states the potential requirements for action, and defines the appropriate goals and potential adaptation measures to be developed and implemented in the process. The Strategy is divided into 13 action fields and two cross-sectional fields (=14+15). (1) Human health (2) Building sector (3) Water regime, water management, coastal and marine protection (4) Soil (5) Biological diversity (6) Agriculture (7) Woodland and forestry (8) Fishery (9) Energy industry (conversion, transport and supply) (10) Financial services industry (11) Transport, transport infrastructure (12) Trade and industry (13) Tourism industry (14) Spatial, regional and physical development planning (15) Civil protection. In due course, the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) will design a comprehensive set of tools to support and implement the DAS. This will be made available for download from www.anpassung.net. An integral part of this will be the 'Tatenbank' (www.tatenbank.anpassung.net), the 'Klimalotse' (www.klimalotse.anpassung.net), FISKA (special information system 'Adaptation') and an Indicator System to aid adaptation. The latter is one of the key tasks identified for the DAS. As far as the Indicator System is concerned, it has been decided to prepare a Report on Indicators for the challenges facing Germany and the implementation of adaptation measures. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Since 2009, the radical Muslim movement in northern Nigeria known as Boko Haram has become widely known in Western media for both its militant actions and its ultra-fundamentalist programme. This analysis examines Boko Haram from a historical perspective, viewing the movement as a result of social, political and generational dynamics within the larger field of northern Nigerian radical Islam. The contribution also considers some of the theological dimensions of the dispute between Boko Haram and its Muslim opponents and presents the different stages of militant activity through which this movement has gone so far. The article shows that movements such as Boko Haram are deeply rooted in northern Nigeria’s specific economic, religious and political development and are thus likely to crop up again if basic frame conditions such as social injustice, corruption and economic mismanagement do not change.Seit 2009 wurde die unter dem Namen Boko Haram bekannte radikale muslimische Bewegung in Nordnigeria in westlichen Medien für ihre militanten Aktionen und ihr ultrafundamentalistisches Programm bekannt. Der vorliegende Beitrag untersucht die Bewegung aus historischer Perspektive und sieht die Entstehung von Boko Haram als Ergebnis sozialer, politischer und generationsbezogener Dynamiken innerhalb des radikalen Islam im Norden Nigerias. Der Autor verweist zudem auf theologische Dimensionen der Auseinandersetzung zwischen der Bewegung und ihren muslimischen Gegnern und stellt die verschiedenen Phasen militanter Aktionen Boko Harams dar, die bislang erkennbar sind. Der Beitrag belegt, dass Bewegungen wie Boko Haram tief in den spezifischen ökonomischen, religiösen und politischen Bedingungen im Norden Nigerias verwurzelt sind und daher immer wieder entstehen können, sollten sich wesentliche Rahmenbedingungen – wie soziale Ungerechtigkeit, Korruption und ökonomisches Missmanagement – nicht ändern.

    District heating plants and local heating systems are one of the most important future technologies for the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies. In order to hedge the cost and to extend the life of these systems, it is even more important in the future to pay more attention to a preventive monitoring of leakages of pipeline routes. Together with the development specialists Elnic (Rosenheim, Federal Republic of Germany), the Stadtwerke Rosenheim (Federal Republic of Germany) have brought a new leak detection system on the market.

    Studies assign a tremendous growth potential related to biotechnology. However, the predicted proportion of biotechnological manufactured products in the chemical industry for the year 2010 by 20 % will more likely remain by today's 5 %. The study deals with the question why biotechnological products are currently established at the market in the obvious slow way. Therefore, the current constraints and existing respectively new incentive instruments referring to the white (industrial) biotechnology are analyzed to focus on the promotion of the development and application of environmentally friendly biotechnology products and methods. In addition to a search concerning environmental relevance and further development of white biotechnology, the postulated constraints and incentives as well as new promotions are discussed with the help of expert interviews. On the basis of a preliminary study - after further discussion with experts - concrete proposals on improvements related to an ongoing establishment of biotechnology will be derived. Based on case studies (2nd generation biofuels, polyhydroxybutyrate as biopolymer and phytase as an animal feed additive), the practical effects and specific conditions to incentives, from the perspective of biotechnological processes and environmentally friendly products are investigated. Overall, about 40 activities were recommended, which could be assigned to areas of direct government incentives (tax policy/subsidies, subsidies, education and research policy, basic political conditions, government demand and information policy/consumer intelligence) as well as non-governmental incentives (knowledge transfer and cooperation, organisation-related policy, capital market financing).

    Every year thousands of patients with inflammatory diseases of the musculoskeletal system undergo radon therapy, but the molecular mechanism and the risk of this therapy are not understood. To study the effects of radon exposure in vitro and in vivo we constructed a radon exposure chamber in the framework of the GREWIS project. With this device we are able to expose samples under controlled and reproducible conditions including the radon galleries in Austria and Germany. Adjustable parameters are radon activity-concentration, temperature, humidity and exposure time. These parameters are permanently monitored and controlled. During experiments with cell cultures it is also possible to adjust the CO{sub 2}-concentration. In addition, experiments with mice can be performed with this setup. To measure the radon kinetics in different types of tissue we exposed tissue samples like fat or muscle and mice in the radonchamber. Afterwards we measured the -spectra of the short living radon decay products lead-214 and bismuth-214 in the exposed samples with a HPGe-Detector. We recorded the spectra at different time points after exposure and calculated the initial amount of radon at the end of the exposure period in the sample and investigated the diffusion of the radon out of it. We compared the results from different types of tissue but also activated coal. In an activated coal sample the radon is bound to it via Van-der-Waals-force and the decay spectra are governed by the life time of the bound radon (3,8 days). In contrast in the biological samples the primary radon diffuses out of the samples in less than 20 minutes and the spectra follow the kinetics of the decay of the daughter products. These measurements where performed for the first time under therapy conditions like in radon galleries and also with higher radon concentration. In our experiments we could see an enhanced accumulation of radon and its decay products in fatty tissue compared to muscle tissue. Also in tendon we could measure increased radon concentrations. We compared the results with the few known data from literature. We could see minor variances to our data which will be discussed in detail and might be due to the different measurement protocols. From our data we could calculate the local deposited dose caused by radon and its decay products in the different tissues. They are smaller than than the doses used in x-ray therapy. But the local doses caused by the microdosimetric profile of the alpha-particles are in the same range. These data give evidence about possible effect of the radon therapy caused by irregular distribution of radon and local low dose-irradiation.

  7. Development of an offshore gas field: Hydrate and paraffin tests for ensuring continuous production; Entwicklung eines offshore Gasfelds - Hydrat- und Paraffinuntersuchungen zur Sicherstellung der kontinuierlichen Produktion

    Production in offshore gas fields often requires transporting of undried raw gas through pipelines laid on, or in, the sea floor. This will cool the gas down - at worst to sea floor temperature, which may be as low as 4 C. This will cause condensation of the water and higher hydrocarbons. Two of the related problems are gone into here, i.e. potential formation of gas hydrates and potential paraffin deposits. The paraffin problem is relevant not only for crude gas transport but also - even more so - for gas conditioning in a freeze-dryer. (orig.)

    Poor Biodiesel quality, contamination with copper and zinc as well as undesired reactions between (several) additives and biodiesel components are known causes for nozzle fouling. Therefore, among other things, all additives have to pass a no-harm test. The standard fouling tests are two engine tests: the XUD9-test (CEC F-23-01) and the DW-10-test (CEC DF 98-08). The XUD9 is a cost efficient, fast and proven testing method. It uses, however, an obsolete indirect injection diesel engine. The newer DW10 test is complex, costly and designed for high stress. This reduces the engine life and leads to a fuel consumption of approximately 1,000 l per test, both contributing to the high costs of the test. The main goal of the project ENIAK is the development, assembly, commissioning, and evaluation of a non-engine fuel injector test. It uses four complete common rail systems. The injection takes place in four self-designed reactors instead of an engine, and the fuel is not combusted, but re-condensed and pumped in a circle. If the test method proves to be as reliable as expected, it can be used as an alternative test method for injector fouling with low requirements regarding infrastructure on the testing site and sample volume. The project is funded by the the federal ministry of consumer protection, food and agriculture via FNR (''Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe'', Agency for Renewable Resources). (orig.)

    In accordance with alterations of the political and economical settings of Central Europe in the last decades, the characteristics of NBC hazards have changed. Since war appears unlikely, possible new scenarios involve pandemics, chemical transport accidents or distribution of CB warfare agents and radioactive materials by terroristic acts. Meeting this situation requires new protection and self aid equipment for the German civilian disaster relief forces. The German government has reacted to these risks by designing personal protection equipment for the civilian voluntary and professional disaster relief forces. The new NBC self aid kit will be part of this effort. The scientific approach of the project consisted of an updated risk analysis, a questionnaire for the professionals and volunteers involved in disaster management, a thorough evaluation of commercially available kits and single components, final design of the new kit including user instructions, and validation of a prototype kit in a disaster relief exercise. Results of the questionnaire stressed the need for a NBC self aid kit fulfilling the demands of easy handling, use of commercially available components, stability of materials, consumption adapted supply and portable size and weight of the complete kit. The evaluation of international NBC equipment could not identify any current NBC self aid kit which satisfies all needs of the German civilian disaster relief forces. The authors therefore compiled a new kit consisting of commercially available components. The newly developed kit was evaluated in a disaster relief exercise.

  10. Development of the microphone array measurement technique for application to cryogenic wind tunnels; Entwicklung der Mikrofonarraymesstechnik fuer die experimentelle Anwendung in kryogenen Windkanaelen

    The present work deals with the development of the microphone array measurement technique for application to cryogenic wind tunnels at temperatures down to 100 K. In contrast to conventional wind tunnels, in cryogenic wind tunnels the Reynolds number can be changed independent of the Mach number. Therefore the applicability of the microphone array measurement technique to cryogenic wind tunnels allows the independent investigation of Mach and Reynolds number effects for aeroacoustic sources. For this purpose two microphone arrays suitable for cryogenic application have been developed. A small array was used for a validation experiment using a single-rod configuration as an aeroacoustic noise source; the experience gained therefrom being then used to develop a larger array. This array was used to finally demonstrate the applicability of the measuring technology to an airplane half model. For the development of both arrays several factors had to be considered, such as, for example, the contraction arising from the low temperatures and the influence of the temperature on the microphone frequency response. In the validation experiment, acoustic array measurements have been performed using the small microphone array with 21 microphones in a cryogenic wind tunnel for various Mach and Reynolds numbers, using a single-rod configuration. The aeroacoustic source induced by the rod could be identified by the microphone.array at ambient as well as at cryogenic temperatures. The radiated sound powers were compared with predictions from two models: one model was based on a dimensional analysis of the measured data without taking into consideration the Reynolds number. The measured data with this model could be better fitted by a speed law with the exponent 6.7 rather than the expected 6.0. The second model was based on an analytical model for sound radiation from a single-rod configuration which took into account variables dependent on the Reynolds number. The comparison with this model showed very good agreement in that the u{sup 6} power law was shown to apply. The important outcome of this validation experiment was that the data measured in the cryogenic environment let to meaningful experimental results. In the demonstration experiment the sound radiation of an airplane half model in a high-lift configuration in a cryogenic wind tunnel was examined with a large microphone array, which consisted of 144 microphones. Aeroacoustic sources were localised at ambient as well as at cryogenic temperatures on different areas of the wing, such as, for example, at the leading edge flap, the trailing flap tip or the Krueger's flap. The radiated sound showed a dependence on the Reynolds number for the whole model as well as for different source areas. This was in particular the case for two source areas: First, dominant tones were identified in the vicinity of the leading edge, but which then disappeared with a rise of the Reynolds number. Second, a narrow band source could be seen on the turbulence generator on the nacelle, for which a scaling to the Mach number with M{sup 6} and a systematic dependence on the Reynolds- and Strouhal numbers could be shown. To sum up, the results of the investigation on the half model demonstrated successfully the applicability of the measurement technique developed within the scope of this work.

    Electromechanical steering systems increasingly replace hydraulic power steering systems, since they have substantial advantages such as a reduced consumption of fuel. A substantial aspect of each power steering is the correct choice of the support strength as a function of the driving conditions. The contribution under consideration reports on different approaches of regulation for an adjustment of the desired target hand moment for an electromechanical power steering. The requirements of the instantaneous control are deduced and specified by target values for selected characteristic numbers. The different automatic controllers are compared with the help of numeric simulation. Among other things, a special H{sub {infinity}} approach is used which is suitable very well for the regulation under consideration. The behaviour of the controller action is analyzed both in simulation as well as in a test vehicle. The steering system is modelled for the systems analysis, controller synthesis and controller simulation. The model validation is accomplished by test stand measurements.

    The overall goal of the project RS 1506 ''Development and Validation of Three Dimensional CFD Methods for Reactor Safety Applications'' is the validation of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software for the simulation of three -dimensional thermo-hydraulic heat and fluid flow phenomena in nuclear reactors. For this purpose a wide spectrum of validation and test cases was selected covering fluid flow and heat transfer phenomena in the downcomer and in the core of pressurized water reactors. In addition, the coupling of the system code ATHLET with the CFD code ANSYS CFX was further developed and validated. The first choice were UPTF experiments where turbulent single- and two-phase flows were investigated in a 1:1 scaled model of a German KONVOI reactor. The scope of the CFD calculations covers thermal mixing and stratification including condensation in single- and two-phase flows. In the complex core region, the flow in a fuel assembly with spacer grid was simulated as defined in the OECD/NEA Benchmark MATIS-H. Good agreement are achieved when the geometrical and physical boundary conditions were reproduced as realistic as possible. This includes, in particular, the consideration of heat transfer to walls. The influence of wall modelling on CFD results was investigated on the TALL-3D T01 experiment. In this case, the dynamic three dimensional fluid flow and heat transfer phenomena were simulated in a Generation IV liquid metal cooled reactor. Concurrently to the validation work, the coupling of the system code ATHLET with the ANSYS CFX software was optimized and expanded for two-phase flows. Different coupling approaches were investigated, in order to overcome the large difference between CPU-time requirements of system and CFD codes. Finally, the coupled simulation system was validated by applying it to the simulation of the PSI double T-junction experiment, the LBE-flow in the MYRRA Spallation experiment and a demonstration test case simulating a pump trip transient in a PWR. It was shown that coupled 1D-3D programs are important for the realistic simulation of three dimensional flow phenomena i.e. for mixing and stratification in nuclear reactors.

    State of Research: The Pressurized Pulverized Coal Combustion Combined Cycle (PPCCCC) with a directly fired gas turbine can reach electrical efficiencies beyond 50%. The required gas quality upstream the gas turbine has not been reached yet at temperatures above 1000 C. One approach tested is the precipitation of ash and alkalines at temperatures above the ash melting point. This principle contains problems concerning the remaining content of ash and alkalines in the flue gas and damages to the refractory materials due to corrosion. Goal of the Investigation: An alternative process had to be investigated in which the flue gas is cleaned according to the state of the art, i.e. below the ash fusion temperature. This principle requires cooling down the flue gas and heating it up again after cleaning in a high temperature heat exchanger. Method: A ceramic tube-and-shell heat exchanger in a model scale was designed and was operated at realistic conditions in an atmospheric test plant in connection with a high temperture precipitation. Result: The heat exchanger showed a good performance concerning design and material. The expected temperatures were not reached totally because of untight joints. Clogging occurred in the tube entrances at high temperatures because of sintered ash agglomerates. First tests to clean the entrances during operation showed positive results. The ash precipitation by means of a cyclone and ceramic filter candles was performed without difficulties. Conclusion: Avoiding and improving joints will help to achieve higher temperatures. A process of cleaning the tubes in-line has to be introduced to prevent the clogging effects. If this is successfully done for high temperatures, an attractive principle for a PPCCCC-process is available which reaches the gas purity required. (orig.) [German] Derzeitiger Stand der Forschung: Der Kohlenstaubdruckfeuerungs-Kombiprozess mit direkt befeuerter Gasturbine verspricht elektrische Wirkungsgrade ueber 50%. Die dazu notwendige Gasreinheit vor der Gasturbine ist bislang bei Temperaturen ueber 1000 C nicht erreichbar. Als ein Ansatz wird versucht, die notwendige Abscheidung von Asche und Alkaliverbindungen oberhalb der Aschefliesstemperatur durchzufuehren. Problematisch hierbei sind v.a. der verbleibende Asche- und Alkaliengehalt im Rauchgas und Korrosionsschaeden an den Feuerfestmaterialien. Zielsetzung der Untersuchung: Eine alternative Schaltung sollte untersucht werden, in der die Gasreinigung nach Stand der Technik unterhalb des Ascheerweichungspunktes erfolgt. Dazu ist eine Abkuehlung und anschliessende Wiederaufheizung des Rauchgases in einem Hochtemperatur-Waermeaustauscher erforderlich. Methode: Eine keramischer Rohrbuendel-Waermeaustauscher im Modellmassstab wurde konstruiert und in einer drucklosen Versuchsanlage zusammen mit einer Heissgasentstaubung unter realen Bedingungen betrieben. Ergebnis: Der Waermeaustauscher erwies sich in Konstruktion und Werkstoffwahl als geeignet. Wegen Undichtigkeiten konnten die angestrebten hohen Temperaturen nicht ganz erreicht werden. Bei hohen Temperaturen verstopfte versinternde Asche die Rohreingaenge. Erste Vorversuchen zur Reinigung der Rohr im Betrieb erbrachten positive Ergebnisse. Die Abscheidung der Asche durch Zyklon und keramische Filterkerzen gelang problemlos. Schlussfolgerung: Bei Vermeidung bzw. Verbesserung von undichten Verbindungen liessen sich hoehere Temperaturen erreichen. Gelingt die Reinigung der Rohreingaenge im Betrieb bei hohen Temperaturen, steht ein Verfahren zur Verfuegung, mit dem die fuer den Prozess noetige Gasreinheit erreicht wird. (orig.)

    Organic substances with polar groups are enriched on water surfaces and can form monomolecular surface films which can reduce the surface tension. A new model to describe surface films is presented, which describes in detail the film forming properties of fatty acids with up to 22 carbon atoms. The model is applied to measured concentrations of fatty acids (from the literature) in rain water and on aerosol particles and cloud droplets. An investigation of the sources of fatty acids has shown, that abrasion of the wax layer on leaves and needles is the main sources for surface film material in the western USA. Anthropogenic sources in urban areas are meat preparation and cigarette smoke. The agreement between model results and measurements when the model was applied to rain water confirms the original assumption that fatty acids are a main compound of surface films in rain water. For humid aerosol particles the application of the model on measured concentrations of fatty acids only showed strongly diluted films. Only for remote forest areas in western USA concentrated films were found, with the surface tension reduced by 20 to 30%. On cloud droplets the surface films is still more diluted than on aerosol particles. For all investigated cases the films was too much diluted to have an effect on the activation process of cloud droplets. (orig.) [German] Organische Substanzen mit polaren Gruppen reichern sich an der Wasseroberflaeche an und koennen monomolekulare Oberflaechenfilme bilden, die zu einer Verringerung der Oberflaechenspannung fuehren. Es wird ein neues Modell zur Beschreibung eines Oberflaechenfilms beschrieben, das detailliert die filmbildenden Eigenschaften der Fettsaeuren mit bis zu 22 Kohlenstoffatomen erfasst. Dieses Modell ist auf gemessene Konzentrationen von Fettsaeuren (Literaturdaten) in Regenwasser und auf atmosphaerischen Aerosolteilchen und Wolkentropfen angewandt worden. Eine Betrachtung der Quellen der Fettsaeuren zeigte, dass der Abrieb der Wachsschicht von Blaettern und Nadeln die Hauptquelle der Oberflaechenfilme in den westlichen USA sein duerfte. Anthropogene Quellen in urbanen Gebieten sind u.a. Fleischzubereitung und Zigarettenrauch. Bei der Anwendung auf Regenwasser bestaetigt die Uebereinstimmung zwischen Modell und Messung die urspruengliche Annahme, dass Fettsaeuren wesentliche Bestandteile des Oberflaechenfilms auf Regenwasser sind. Die Anwendung auf gemessene Konzentrationen von Fettsaeuren zeigte fuer feuchte Aerosolteilchen im allgemeinen nur stark verduennte Filme. Nur fuer bewaldete Reinluftgebiete in den westlichen USA konnten konzentrierte Filme berechnet werden, durch die die Oberflaechenspannung um etwa 20% bis 30% vermindert wird. Auf Wolkentropfen ist der Oberflaechenfilm jedoch noch staerker verduennt als auf feuchten Aerosolteilchen. In allen untersuchten Faellen waren die Filme zu stark verduennt, um einen Einfluss auf den Aktivierungsprozess der Wolkentropfen auszuueben. (orig.)

    One of the central components of the energy turnaround is the improvement of energy efficiency. Households play a key role in this connection, not only due to their high potentials for saving energy and shifting loads, but also because of the growing importance of electricity as an energy carrier. This makes it interesting to explore how the continuing dissemination of efficient energy applications, electromobility and decentralised electricity production through photovoltaics will impact on load and electricity production profiles in the German household sector until the year 2040. The results show that with ambitious energy policy goals it will be possible to lower the electricity demand of households by 30%. However, this decrease could be more than undone by electromobility.

    A 109 m ice core from a high-alpine glacier (Colle Gnifetti, Monte Rosa massif, 4440 m a.s.l., Switzerland) was used to reconstruct the history of atmospheric trace components. Concentrations of the anions chloride, nitrate, sulfate and the cations sodium, ammonium, potassium, magnesium and calcium were measured with 2.5-5.0 cm resolution in the top 70 m of a 109 m long of the ice core. Dating of the ice core was performed using stratigraphic markers such as historically known Saharan dust events, the atomic bomb horizon and volcanic eruptions and supplemented with the {sup 210}Pb nuclear dating. The record covers the time period from about 1755-1981. The concentrations of nitrate and sulfate show an exponential increase from 1930 and 1870 until 1965, respectively. The factors of increase were 2.3{+-}0.3 and 5.8{+-}0.9, respectively. The chloride concentrations remained constant during this period. A good agreement between the concentrations of sulfate, which were corrected for the contribution of seasalt and mineral dust and the European SO{sub 2}-emissions was found for the last 100 years. The concentrations of sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium did not show a trend. The concentrations of ammonium increased exponentially between 1870 and 1960 by a factor of 2.2{+-}0.4. The different sources of the trace components were identified using correlation analysis. Sodium and chloride originated from seasalt, magnesium and calcium from geologic erosion. For both, the industrial and pre-industrial period, the dominant source of ammonium and nitrate was conversion of the gaseous precursors NH{sub 3} and HNO{sub 3}. Sulfate concentrations in the industrial period originated from the anthropogenically emitted SO{sub 2}, whereas in the pre-industrial period the geologic source dominated. The Colle Gnifetti accumulates mainly summer snow, and therefore, several test drillings were performed to find a new site with higher accumulation rate. figs., 17 tabs., 50 refs.

  20. Development, setup, and test of a new cryostat module for the S-DALINAC; Entwicklung, Aufbau und Test eines neuen Kryostatmoduls fuer den S-DALINAC

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kuerzeder, Thorsten

    2013-07-01

    Within the work presented here, a new cryostat-module for the superconducting injector accelerator of the S-DALINAC as well as three superconducting cavities have been designed and built. The aim of these efforts was an increase in energy behind the injector from 10 MeV to 14 MeV and in beam current from 60 μA to 250 μA. Such an upgrade in intensity required an increase of the input radio-frequency (RF) power from 500 W to 2 kW. For this purpose new RF power couplers had been designed at the Institut fuer Theorie elektromagnetischer Felder at the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt. In order to enable the use of these couplers a new cryostat-module with a WR-284 rectangular waveguide transition line through all pressure and temperature stages was developed within the work presented here. The new construction was designed following that of the standard cryostats of the S-DALINAC. Because the dimensions and adapters for the beam and insulating vacuum as well as the connections needed for helium and nitrogen supply of both cryostats agree, the present module can be simply replaced by the new one. For the WR-284 waveguide feed-through the tower section was redesigned to provide enough space for an assembly under clean-room conditions. The waveguide bellows, specially built for this project, show excellent RF properties and provide the flexibility needed for the transfer line. As an alternative to a cold vacuum window a special waveguide with diaphragms at an intermediate temperature has been developed in order to minimize losses due to heat radiation inside the waveguide. All waveguide components were tested for ultra-high-vacuum capability and their RF properties have been determined within this work. Within the process of the fabrication of the cryostat module the helium vessel was equipped with a significantly improved magnetic shielding. Final measurements inside the helium vessel showed an average value of 4 μT for the magnetic field at the positions of the superconducting cavities. For the first time, this will allow the achievement of an intrinsic quality factor Q{sub 0} of 3 . 10{sup 9} for the superconducting cavities at the S-DALINAC, if state-of-the-art preparation techniques are used. Three new 20-cell cavities were built to meet the increased requirements for the new accelerator module. Instead of fabricating these structures from single cells, state-of-the-art techniques using dumbbells were applied in order to provide an optimal treatment of the 20-cell cavities. Prior to the production, simulations and measurements were carried out during the course of the present work, such that all three cavities were successfully tuned to the right frequency and field flatness at the correct length. For an offline test the cryostat module was equipped with one cavity and cooled down. Tests at 2 K and 4 K demonstrated leak tightness of the various pressure stages and the thermal losses of 5-6 W to the helium vessel were also within requirements. Finally, the external quality factor Q{sub ex} of the new RF input coupler was measured to be 6.25 . 10{sup 6}, thus almost matching the desired design value of 5.10{sup 6}. After these successful tests the new module is ready to be installed at the injector of the S-DALINAC. Equipped with two of the three new cavities it will replace the current module, which, in turn, will serve as a spare for the main accelerator of the S-DALINAC, thus reducing maintenance periods in future.

    Insulin was radioiodinated with {sup 123}I ({sup 123}I-tyrosine-(A14)-insulin) to a specific activity of 1 {mu}g/mCi, corresponding to 0.025 I.U. of insulin/mCi. This preparation was used for in vitro binding experiments with adipose tissue, showing active binding to the two subunits of the known insulin receptor. In a preliminary clinical investigation, 5 adipose patients with (n = 2) and without (n = 3) diabetes mellitus Type II, were subject to in vivo injection of the same radiolabeled product using 3 mCi/patient. During the first minutes of dynamic imaging, the liver was the major organ of tracer uptake in all patients. Furthermore, the pancreas, and in one patient the kidneys, were visualised. Further studies on insulin in vivo kinetics and quantification are under way. (authors).

    The roles of the different types of operators are described and particularly pointed out the duties of a municipal system operator to various examples. The implementation of the energy transition will require a fundamental change in behaviour of the customers. The possibilities of the network operator will be essentially limited to the stimulation of this change in behaviour through information and transparency. Attention is drawn to the unique, publicly accessible portal that the production and consumption situation in Hamburg is transparent in real time showing at district level.

    Nedos, Mirco

    For measurements of CP-violation in the B-meson system, as well as the search for new physics, the LHCb-experiment has been built at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. One component of the sophisticated LHCb-detector is the Outer Tracker. Its measured data is transmitted serially via optical links into the readout network. For the interface between the frontend electronics on the detector and the data acquisition network a common readout board is used. This FPGA-based board, dubbed the TELL1, preprocesses the data. In this thesis the developments of the detector specific parts of the TELL1 firmware and the integration of the TELL1 board into the readout chain of the Outer Tracker are described. It covers the synchronisation and the error detection of the data received, as well as the generation of the Outer Tracker DAQ data format. In addition a zero-suppression algorithm has been implemented in the FPGA in order to reduce the network payload and guarantee operation at maximum trigger rate.

    For fine-tuning of the diesel engine throttle control on the new Voith Maxima, IAV GmbH developed a physical Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation (HiL), whose parameterisation is based chiefly on easily obtainable construction design data. With the aid of the HiL simulation, the software functions of the of the engine's ECU could already be parameterised and verified in the lab, before a running prototype was available. As a result, a throttle application was available at an early stage, needing only to be further optimised during subsequent test runs. This enabled the number of driving trials, with the cost and effort involved, to be reduced. Looking to the future, an extended HiL simulation with an optimisation algorithm for automatic throttle parameterisation will allow for a further reduction in application development costs. (orig.)

    In cooperation with NRPB, the specifications of the mainframe COSYMA version 95/1 and the PC COSYMA version 2.0 were prepared and the corresponding modifications implemented. Important improvements are dose-rate dependent models for deterministic health effects, the time dependent efficiency of stable iodine tablets, the extension of data bases for the inclusion of activation products, and supplementary evaluation programs. PC COSYMA has been completed by an economics module, further options in the ingestion pathways, and a graphics package for presenting assessment results. COSYMA has been applied for probabilistic dose assessments within paramter studies and special investigations of EPR concepts. RODOS, the real-time on-line decision support system for nuclear emergency management, has been further developed with the aim of the first pilot version 2.0 for pre-operational application in the second half of 1995. At present, some 20 institutes in the EU, 8 institutes in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, and 5 institutes in central and eastern European countries cooperate with FZKA/INR as main coordinator. The working meeting of all contractors in Interlaken (CH), 20-24 June 1994, lead to the consolidation of the international cooperation and a broad consensus about the future role and use of the RODOS-system, in particular in the Eastern countries. At the national level, the approval of a strategy and position paper on RODOS/RESY (the near range and early phase subsystem) by subcommittees of the German Radiation Protection Commission can be considered as a step further to the future use of the system in emergency centres of the Federal States.

    In this Project in an interdisciplinary cooperation the influence of tensides on the performance improvement of biochemical decomposition of persistent substances has been investigated. During the first part of the project (Prof. Raebiger) two continously supplied experimental plants were built. These two plants, using activated sludge from a municipal wastewater treatment plant, were run simultaneously with and without tensides respectively. The investigations show, that the results in regard to the decomposition rate are better from the plant operated with tenside. Also, the decomposition rate in relation to the total solids content has shown to be better in the plant run with tenside in comparison to the plant without tenside. This was especially relevant during simulated malfunctions. In project part II (Prof. Dr. U. Fischer) further investigations into the influence of tensids on the microbial decomposition of pollutants have been conducted using the adapted microorganism cultures taken from the experimental reactors. Investigations using activated sludge flakes and a monoculture in a batchprocess have shown an increased growth in the presence of the investigated tensids. A variation in the pollutant concentration as well as the addition of the tensid Bioversal to the nutrient medias yielded hints for the optimization of the culture conditions. In Part III of the project (Prof. Leibfritz) an extraction process was optimized in order to meet the requirements of the bacteria cultures and the objective of the project. Among other things, the influence of the tensids on the decomposition speed of the pollutants has been demonstrated in the course of this examinations. The findings gathered from this joint project regarding the use of tensids for improved decomposition of persistent substances, particularly during malfunctions and strong changes in the concentration, can be transposed into technical application in the future.

    We have succeeded in developing a mobile measuring system suitable for everyday use that has already proven its practical suitability in a wide range of measurements. At present, we are preparing the stationary and permanent installation of aluminium supporting beams in the various conveyor drive stations. Thus, outages for the temporary installation of the supporting beam, which were still few, would no longer be required and the ''measuring crew'' would only have to carry around the handy measurement case and laptop. This considerably simpler application and the positive feedback on the benefits of the system are the main reasons why we will not work on the development of a stationary online system. The remaining additional benefit of such a unit would only be of minor significance. We are currently planning the following additional development steps as far as the ''mobile cord-monitoring unit'' is concerned: Developing a sensor-based belt edge monitoring unit as a modular complement to the system. This unit will monitor both belt edges by means of sensors, record them in the measuring signal and represent them explicitly in the evaluation. Linking the CMU evaluation software with the RegGEA system mentioned in Chapter 7, which has been introduced at RWE Power. This step combines an advanced central maintenance and planning system with an innovative belt damage detection system in a single piece of peripheral equipment, which offers the user much more advantages than the sum of the two individual systems taken alone would have done. Designing an aluminium supporting beam divisible into individual segments. Its handy pallet dimensions will allow the complete system to be transported to any site outside of RWE Power. Even though the system was originally conceived as a development for RWE Power, it has already met with great interest outside of RWE Power AG. (orig.)

    Water transport in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) was non-destructively studied during operation with synchrotron X-ray radiography and tomography. The focus was set on the influence of the three-dimensional morphology of the cell materials on the water distribution and transport. Water management is still one of the mayor issues in PEMFC research. If the fuel cell is too dry, the proton conductivity (of the membrane) decreases leading to a performance loss and, in the worst case, to an irreversible damage of the membrane. On the other hand, the presence of water hinders the gas supply and causes a decrease in the cell performance. For this reason, effective water transport is a prerequisite for successful fuel cell operation. In this work the three-dimensional water transport through the gas diffusion layer (GDL) and its correlated with the 3D morphology of the cell materials has been revealed for the first time. It was shown that water is transported preferably through only a few larger pores which form transport paths of low resistance. This effect is pronounced because of the hydrophobic properties of the employed materials. In addition, water transport was found to be bidirectional, i. e. at appropriate locations a back and forth transport between GDL and flow field channels was observed. Furthermore, liquid water in the GDL was found to agglomerate preferably at the ribs of the flow field. This can be explained by condensation due to a temperature gradient in the cell and by the position, which is sheltered from the gas flow. Larger water accumulations in the gas supply channels were mainly attached to the channel wall opposing the GDL. The gas flow can bypass these agglomerations allowing a continuous gas supply. Moreover, it was shown that randomly distributed cracks in the micro porous layers (MPL) play an important role for the agglomeration of liquid water as they form preferred low resistance transport paths. In this work also perforated MPL/GDL-materials were investigated. It had been shown in complementary measurements that depending on process parameters perforated MPL/GDL materials can have either a positive or in other cases a negative impact on the cell performance (gains of up to 20 % vs. losses of same magnitude). The water transport was found to be responsible for the different behavior. At its best, the perforations have a drainage effect which facilitates effective water removal. In other cases a flooding of the whole local pore area around the perforation was observed. This area was obviously heat affected by laser perforation procedure and showed a hydrophilic behavior. The transport through the perforations was also found to be bidirectional. In this work, specially adapted measuring techniques were applied to analyze various aspects of water management. For example the combination of dynamic radiographic and three-dimensional tomographic measurements has been proven as valuable method to interpret transport phenomena in terms of the underlying cell structure. On top of that a method is applied, which allows for an increased spatial resolution in tomography and the easy switch between radiographic and tomographic measure mode. By comparing the tomographic data of the cell measured subsequent to operation with the dry reference state it was possible to extract the three-dimensional quasi in situ water distribution. This allows for more detailed analyses, for example, statistical water cluster size distributions. The extracted water distribution was also used by a group at the ZSW Ulm for the model validation of a grand canonical Monte Carlo simulation.

    The life-cycle of technical systems is to a large extent identical. A system is planned, then established and commissioned. Finally the normal operation begins. Maintenance is executed during the normal operation in regular time intervals. In longer time intervals, extensive renewals become necessary. The schedule of a renovation is identical with the schedule of new planning. In every phase of the life-cycle, software tools are applied for the evaluation of the planning and/or operating states and to support the different tasks. The efficiency of these tools depends significantly on a seamless data exchange. It is therefore necessary to find a schema that enables the integration of the tools for planning, operation and renovation. In this work, a scenario is developed for integration of planning and evaluation tools for HVAC systems. The scenario is based on the conditions of the usual course of planning with different, stand-alone planners. Main part of this scenario is a product data model, that provides a flexible and open description of the building and its technical systems. A meta model is proposed as a superordinate structure. With its aid the product data model gets a uniform structure and is represented in manageable form. Moreover, the meta model supports the extensions of the data model since extensions can first be discussed on the abstract level of the meta model and than in a second step may be formulated in detail. In order to avoid mapping a great number of technical components a general data model for technical components which is implemented with the aid of an abstract data type 'parameter' is proposed. The system implemented within the frame of this work enables extraction of simulation models for the thermal evaluation of buildings directly from the design process. It is shown how this system can be integrated into a cooperative design process. The operational integrity of the scenario is demonstrated with the help of an example. (orig.) [German] Der Lebenszyklus aller technischen Anlagen ist weitgehend gleich. Eine Anlage wird zunaechst geplant, dann errichtet und abgenommen, anschliessend beginnt der normale Betrieb. Im regulaeren Betrieb wird in regelmaessigen Zeitabstaenden eine Wartung durchgefuehrt. In groesseren Abstaenden werden umfangreiche Erneuerungen, Renovierungen, notwendig. Der zeitliche Ablauf eiener Renovierung ist wie der zeitliche Ablauf einer Neuplanung. In jeder Phase des Lebenszyklus werden Software-Werkzeuge zur Bewertung der Planungs- bzw. Betriebszustaende und zur Unterstuetzung der Planungsaufgaben eingesetzt. Die Effizienz dieser Werkzeuge haengt entscheidend von einem reibungslosen Datenaustausch ab. Es gilt daher ein Schema zu finden, das die Integration der Software-Werkzeuge fuer Planung, Betrieb und Renovierung ermoeglicht. In der vorliegenden Arbeit wird ein Szenario zur Integration von Planungs- und Bewertungswerkzeugen fuer HLK-Anlagen entwickelt. Das Szenario orientiert sich an den Gegebenheiten des heute ueblichen Planungsablaufs mit verschiedenen unabhaengigen Planern. Zentraler Bestandteil dieses Szenarios ist ein Produktdatenmodell, das sich durch eine flexible und offene Beschreibung von Gebaeude und technischer Anlage auszeichnet. Es wird eine, als ein Metamodell bezeichnete, uebergeordnete Struktur vorgeschlagen, mit deren Hilfe das Produktdatenmodell einheitlich und ueberschaubar dargestellt werden kann. Das Metamodell erleichtert zudem die Erweiterungen des Datenmodells, da Erweiterungen zunaechst auf der abstrakten Ebene des Metamodells behandelt werden koennen und erst in einem zweiten Schritt ausformuliert werden. Um nicht eine Vielzahl von technischen Komponenten abbilden zu muessen, wird ein allgemeines Datenmodell fuer technische Komponenten vorgeschlagen, das mit Hilfe eines abstrakten Datentyps 'Parameter' implementiert wird. Das im Rahmen dieser Arbeit implementierte System ermoeglicht erstmalig, Simulationsmodelle fuer das thermische Verhalten eines Gebaeudes direkt aus dem Planungsprozess abzuleiten. Es wird aufgezeigt, wie dieses System in einen kooperativen Planungsprozess eingebaut werden kann. Der Nachweis fuer die Einsatzfaehigkeit dieses Szenarios wird an einem Beispiel erbracht. Dabei werden Gebaeudedaten aus einem CAD-System uebernommen, das Gebaeudemodell aufgebaut und dem Simulationssystem zur Verfuegung gestellt. (orig.)

    Within the presented project a monovalent natural gas engine is being developed. Based on a serial diesel engine the operation mode of this prototype is changed to a spark ignition concept. The long term purpose of this new engine is an agricultural application. One major objective of the project is the investigation and evaluation of a combustion process, able to fulfil the performance requests as well as the European emission limits for nitrogen oxides NO{sub x}, and carbon monoxide CO of mobile machinery, which become into law in October 2014 (EU stage IV). At the time there are no legislative regulations existing regarding the methane emissions of the observed engines. To get a benefit in greenhouse gas emissions compared to diesel or gasoline engines the methane emissions have to be minimized while operating in natural gas mode. In the course of the current project an engine operation with a methane emission less than 0.5 g/kWh (representing the EURO VI limit for heavy duty vehicles) could be demonstrated. In contrast to diesel engines for agricultural applications it is possible to comply with the emission standards without using a high sophisticated after treatment system consisting of diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), particulate filter (DPF) and SCR catalyst. The usage of a three way catalyst optimized for high methane conversions is sufficient for a stoichiometry gas operation with exhaust gas recirculation. Therefore a significant cost advantage is given.

    The increased requirements of highly stressed components, concerning the resistance to thermal-induced stresses, oxidation, corrosion, hardness as well as wear resistance make high-performance technical ceramics ideally suited for such applications. On the other hand they exhibit properties like high brittleness, partly low thermal shock resistance, low workability and consequential limitations in the engineering design. Hybrid material concepts, as combination of high-performance technical ceramics and metallic engineering materials, can offer interesting technological solutions, if suitable and joining technologies are available. Active brazing, which is a very flexible joining technology in respect of the material selection, arises for the development of new and innovative applications, such as high-temperature fuel cells. Currently silver/copper, copper and silver active brazing filler metals are already used in the industry and are characterised by a decrease of their mechanical strength at approx. 500 C. Referring to this, gold and palladium active brazing filler metals show better features, but because of their high price, they are seldom used. The aim of the reported investigations is the development of active brazing filler metals with reasonable raw materials costs for working temperatures above 500 C and moreover to be used in hydrocarbonated environments with better corrosion-resistance than silver/copper, copper and silver active brazing filler metals. Experimental brazing filler metals with zirconium as surface-active element has been manufactured on the basis of nickel brazing filler metals NI 102, NI 105 and NI 107. The modification of each nickel brazing filler metal was carried out on the one hand by powder metallurgy, whereby zirconium hydride has been mixed or mechanically alloyed. On the other hand the nickel brazing filler metals have been alloyed with zirconium by melting metallurgy. The content of active metal varied between 2 weight-% and 10 weight-%. For the characterisation, the melting range of all experimental brazing filler metals has been determined by thermoanalytical methods and the ones, which have been manufactured by powder metallurgy, have been investigated by means of an x-ray diffraction analysis and a morphological analysis of the powder particles. The suitability of the experimental brazing filler metals for the active brazing has been probed in wetting tests on alumina in high-vacuum brazing trials and examined metallographically. (Abstract Copyright [2010], Wiley Periodicals, Inc.) [German] Die gestiegenen Anforderungen an hochbeanspruchte Bauteilkomponenten hinsichtlich Bestaendigkeit gegen thermische, oxidierende und korrosive Beanspruchungen, Haerte sowie Verschleissbestaendigkeit praedestinieren den Einsatz von ingenieurkeramischen Werkstoffen. Dem gegenueber stehen Eigenschaften wie hohe Sproedigkeit, zum Teil geringe Thermoschockbestaendigkeit, schwierige Bearbeitbarkeit und daraus resultierende Einschraenkungen bei der konstruktiven Gestaltung. Hybride Werkstoffkonzepte als Kombination ingenieurkeramischer Werkstoffe mit metallischen Konstruktionswerkstoffen koennen, sofern dazu geeignete und leistungsfaehige Fuegetechniken verfuegbar sind, technologisch interessante Loesungen darstellen. Das Aktivloeten als eine in der Werkstoffauswahl sehr flexible Fuegetechnologie bietet sich fuer die Erschliessung neuer und innovativer Anwendungen wie beispielsweise der Hochtemperatur-Brennstoffzellen-Technik an. Derzeit in der industriellen Praxis eingesetzte Aktivlote auf Silber/Kupfer-, Kupfer- und Silberbasis weisen bei etwa 500 C einen deutlichen Abfall bezueglich ihrer mechanischen Festigkeit auf. Gold- oder palladiumhaltige Aktivlote mit diesbezueglich besseren Eigenschaften finden aufgrund ihres hohen Preises aeusserst selten Verwendung. Die hier vorgestellten Untersuchungen haben das Ziel, neue Aktivlotlegierungen bei vertretbaren Rohstoffkosten fuer Einsatztemperaturen oberhalb von 500 C zu entwickeln, die sich zudem beim Einsatz in kohlenwasserstoffhaltigen Umgebungen bestaendiger gegen korrosive Angriffe zeigen als Aktivlote auf Silber/Kupfer-, Kupfer-, und Silberbasis. Ausgehend von den Nickelbasisloten NI 102, NI 105 und NI 107 wurden Experimentallote mit Zirkon als grenzflaechenaktivem Element hergestellt. Die Modifizierung der Basislote erfolgte zum einen pulvermetallurgisch unter der Verwendung von Zirkonhydrid durch Mischen oder mechanisches Legieren mit einer Hochenergiekugelmuehle. Zum anderen wurden die Basislote schmelzmetallurgisch mit Zirkon legiert. Der Aktivmetallgehalt variierte zwischen 2 Gew.-% und 10 Gew.-%. Zur Charakterisierung diente die thermoanalytische Vermessung der Schmelzbereiche aller Experimentallote und die pulvermorphologische sowie roentgendiffraktometrische Analyse der pulvermetallurgisch hergestellten. Die Eignung der Experimentallote fuer das Aktivloeten wurde in Benetzungstests auf Aluminiumoxid in Hochvakuumloetversuchen experimentell untersucht und metallographisch bewertet.

    The principle of operation of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) is very simple. However, the fact that very different materials are used for the individual components requires advanced thermal joining techniques to join them in a functional manner. Two very distinct designs have established themselves for the two different intended applications: decentralised power generation (stationary SOFCs) on the one hand, and power converters for vehicles (mobile SOFCs) on the other hand. As a consequence, alternative techniques for joining the individual components are also required. The principal joining process for the stationary SOFC design consists of joining individual steel plates with a glass sealant in an electrically insulating way so that they form an SOFC stack. For the mobile fuel cell design, the SOFC stack consists of individual thin steel cassettes. The window frame of the cassettes, which is made of ferritic chromium steel, is brazed to the ceramic layer of the zirconium oxide solid electrolyte using a filler metal. The material used is a silver-based brazing filler metal which contains only small amounts of copper oxide (CuO) and titanium hydride (TiH{sub 2}) as wetting agents. Both joining processes must be applicable in normal atmospheric air, i. e. under oxidative conditions. R and D activities continue for improving the efficiency and long-term operational stability of the technology to such an extent that SOFCs will become ready for the energy sector market. The two joining techniques described cannot yet be considered standard processes. They, too, will require continuous improvement with respect to reproducibility, endurance and strength of the joints. The Special Joining Techniques working group at Forschungszentrum Juelich uses specially modified dilatometric techniques as suitable quick replacement methods for studying and measuring the joining characteristics of the materials without having to manufacture complex and expensive SOFC stacks. The shrinkage processes in the glass sealant joints are simulated and measured in the {mu}m range using a special dilatometer. In this way, the amount of glass sealant - which is decisive for tightness and bonding - and the process parameters can be determined in advance. With a vertical dilatometer, the melting behaviour of the reactive silver filler metals is examined with respect to melting point shift, viscosity and void ratio, and as a function of the metal additives (Al) and the process atmosphere.

    In the context of dispersion modelling of aerosols in the vicinity of agricultural sites the adoption of dynamical models is more and more usual. Such a model, STAR3D (Simulated Transmission of Aerosols 3D) was newly developed. It is based on the numerical evaluation of the Navier-Stokes-Equations and the subsequent calculation of the particle trajectories using the Langevin-Equation. In the course of the transmission different effects like the sedimentation, diffusion and coagulation of the particles must be considered. For the estimation of the influence of the coagulation a test chamber was build. It could be shown, that the effect of the particle coagulation can be neglected for dispersion modelling in outdoor areas. Finally a field survey was arranged to evaluate STAR3D. At twelve measurement points the mean deviation between the measured and simulated values was 24 percent. (orig.)

    General globalisation and increasing orientation of exporting branches of environmental technology towards the so called developing countries or threshold countries require new technological approaches which facilitate sustainable management in those countries especially with waste and sewage treatment. In order to protect ground and surface waters and to reduce ecological damages / nutrient discharge there is an urgent demand to remove not only oxygen consuming organic carbon compounds, but for example also ammonia-nitrogen, nitrate-nitrogen and phosphorus from wastewater in order to prevent further eutrophication of the waters. However it is known that this results in a high technological and financial expenditure. The algae reactor developed in the research project makes use of the synergetic effect of heterotrophic and photoauto-/-heterotrophic organisms immobilized on an inert carrier material as biofilm, in order to achieve a purification efficiency that could so far only be reached with costly procedural solutions. The auto- and heterotrophic microalgae and cyanobacteria established in the biofilm contributed to the COD-decomposition and the oxygen supply for the heterotrophic bacteria in the biofilm. This synergetic effect enabled a COD-decomposition of up to 94%. The developed and tested process allowed for an extensive nitrogen decomposition of up to 80%. The phosphorus reduction correlated with the content of green algae in the biofilm and amounted up to 40%. The excess biomass formed during the process could be anaerobically converted into biogas at high methane contents (up to 74%). Alternatively, the excess biomass could also be utilized as NPK-fertilizer. A first calculation of profitability showed that the compact design and the fact that a technical ventilation of the algae reactor is not necessary because of the oxygen supply for the heterotrophic bacteria by microalgae and cyanobacteria resulted in extensive economies for investment costs and operating expenses compared to an aeration plant dimensioned for 1,000 pe. The specific technical application of the synergetic effect between photauto-/-photoheterotrophic organisms and heterotrophic bacteria decomposing COD in an algae reactor thus lead to an effective and low-priced decentral sewage treatment process according to the purpose of the project.

    This article describes the conception and application of a methodology to scientifically classify publications on the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) topic. The first part of the presented methodology contains an analysis of both the fundamental positioning of the individual stakeholders writing about the CCS topic as well as their individual argumentative focus. For this purpose, all theses, which the individually analyzed stakeholders have included in their publications, are ascertained, classified, weighted, and evaluated. The second part of the methodology contains the linguistic evaluation (terminology) as well as the subsequent comparison of the individual stakeholders' linguistic and content related positions in a graphic depiction. The evaluations indicate that the theses associated with CCS technology in the reviewed publications primarily emphasize the economic and social aspects. The scope of the presented theses varies whereby only the publications of seven of the 28 reviewed stakeholders could be identified as being primarily ''holistically'' oriented. In addition, it can be seen that there is an above average number of stakeholders with a primarily negative position on the CCS topic in publications with a social argumentative focus. Another noticeable relationship exists between an economic argumentation and a positive position on the CCS topic. The linguistic analysis of the publications provides - as was to be expected - a clear correlation of the selected terminology and the argumentative focus. Stakeholders with a primarily negative argumentative focus tend to use therms with a negative connotation. The presented methodology can also be used in similar form in other controversially debated sectors. In principle, it is possible to also transfer this methodology to other topics outside the energy sector. It is, thus, possible to apply this method to any controversially debated topic for which a sufficiently large number of publications exists to help structurize the available literature and to identify the trends in the line of argumentation pursued by the various stakeholders. In addition, the results of the analyses of the diverse stakeholders can also be used as a comprehensive argumentative foundation for reviewing the respective topics as well as for critically examining one's own texts.

    The overall objective of the project is to develop a general simulation environment for program systems used in reactor safety analysis. The simulation environment provides methods for graphical modeling and evaluation of results for the simulation models. The terms of graphical modeling and evaluation of results summarize computerized methods of pre- and postprocessing for the simulation models, which can assist the user in the execution of the simulation steps. The methods comprise CAD (''Computer Aided Design'') based input tools, interactive user interfaces for the execution of the simulation and the graphical representation and visualization of the simulation results. A particular focus was set on the requirements of the system code ATHLET. A CAD tool was developed that allows the specification of 3D geometry of the plant components and the discretization with a simulation grid. The system provides inter-faces to generate the input data of the codes and to export the data for the visualization software. The CAD system was applied for the modeling of a cooling circuit and reactor pressure vessel of a PWR. For the modeling of complex systems with many components, a general purpose graphical network editor was adapted and expanded. The editor is able to simulate networks with complex topology graphically by suitable building blocks. The network editor has been enhanced and adapted to the modeling of balance of plant and thermal fluid systems in ATHLET. For the visual display of the simulation results in the local context of the 3D geometry and the simulation grid, the open source program ParaView is applied, which is widely used for 3D visualization of field data, offering multiple options for displaying and ana-lyzing the data. New methods were developed, that allow the necessary conversion of the results of the reactor safety codes and the data of the CAD models. The trans-formed data may then be imported into ParaView and visualized. The application of 3D visualization shows advantages in transient analyses with very detailed discretization. This is especially true for the analysis of phenomena with strong local differences and the validation of multi-dimensional models.

  2.

    The project's aim was to develop a process that serves to determine the oxidation stability of heating oil - FAME-/ heating oil - vegetable oil-blends clearly. Due to a directed energy input by means of the process of chemiluminescence, statements about the storage stability and the thermal stability of blends can be made. During the process the ageing of blend components and of the heating oil are taken into consideration. As a result, ageing processes and products of pure heating oil as well as biogenic components can be determined. It was shown that the process is applicable to blends up to an admixture of at least 20 % (V/V) of biogenic components, whereby blends with higher admixture shares can be analyzed as well. According to DIN SPEC 51603 - 6 'Heating Oil Alternative' the admixture of FAME is limited to 20 %(V/V) and the admixture of vegetable oil to 5 % (V/V) because of the distillation range. On the basis of these investigations it could be shown how oxidation products influence the signal process of the chemiluminescence radiation and how they can be correlated by a measurable physical value. Moreover, a new evaluation criterion has been developed. By means of this criterion a good reproducibility - regarding the determination of the oxidation stability according to the chemiluminescence methodology for non-aged fuels - can be achieved. The fuel characteristic decrease in the stability of the tested fuels can be represented only partially by the chemiluminescence process, as the measured values are subject to fluctuations. (orig.)

  3. Development of a semantically operating risk management information system using the example of the European organization for nuclear research (CERN); Entwicklung eines semantisch operierenden Risikomanagement-Informationssystems am Beispiel der Europaeischen Organisation fuer Kernforschung (CERN)

    The term risk analysis summarises the systematic endeavour to identify and evaluate the risks within an organisation associated with projects and actions, and make it possible to regulate risks. Risk analyses are an integral component of risk management, and thus essential to consolidating safety. In that respect, the adequacy and reliability of the findings obtained by way of risk analysis directly depend on the availability and quality of the knowledge resources supplied organisationally. Access to knowledge relevant to making decisions is, however, hampered, in the real world of work through the impact of various informational barriers. Knowledge that is conducive to understanding and avoiding risks is frequently stored in very specialised database systems, the individual syntactic and semantic structures of which make it a very time-consuming and laborious operation to use such knowledge in the context of applications other than the one originally linked to the databases. In addition, a degree of ambiguity that accompanies the semi-structured nature of many documentation and reporting systems makes it difficult to process knowledge efficiently and in an automated way, for example in conjunction with search engines. This dissertation presents a contribution towards overcoming the existing knowledge barriers in risk management. To this end, the method of applying semantic methods of representing knowledge in the domain of risk analysis is proposed. The focus is on the semantic web, which -as an enhancement of the World Wide Web- makes it possible to explicitly grasp the meaning of knowledge contexts and reproduce this information. Should the present risk management be distinguished by document-based organisation and distribution of knowledge, the semantic web presents methods and tools which make it possible to put the knowledge directly to work on the data set level. Building on the latter, the concept of a semantically operating risk management information system is born. The core of such a blueprint is formed by the idea of not storing knowledge pertaining to risk analysis in a way that is based on traditional understanding, such as in the form of textual reports or relational database entries, but instead documenting it in the form of a constantly growing ontology. In order to guarantee access to the ontologically archived knowledge that is in line with practical requirements, the concept has been developed of a search engine that can be used, for any upcoming work processes, to check whether any identical or similar work processes in the past have given rise to critical incidents are documented. Risk managers are provided with a tool which makes it possible to access knowledge pertinent to taking decisions in a very precise manner and at short notice, and thus contributes towards the adequacy of the findings obtained by way of risk analysis being improved.

    Valves made of silicon nitrice ceramics have advantages over metal valves owing to their low density, high wear resistance, low thermal conductivity and high termperature resistance. Reciprocating piston engines with ceramic valves have a lower fuel consumption, lower noise, and lower exhaust emissions. On the other hand, ceramic materials have the disadvantage of being brittele, i.e. mechanical stress concentrations at crack tips cannot be removed by plastic deformation. In order to ensure safe application in piston engines, all ceramic valves must therefore be tested by nondestructive methods in order to detect and replace defective valves. [German] Ventile aus Siliciumnitrid-Keramik haben infolge ihrer geringen Dichte, hohen Verschleissfestigkeit, niedrigen Waermeleitfaehigkeit und hohen Temperaturfestigkeit gegenueber Ventilen aus metallischen Werkstoffen ganz entscheidende Vorteile. So haben Hubkolbenmotoren mit Keramikventilen einen deutlich geringeren Treibstoffbedarf und zeigen bei einem erheblich reduzierten Geraeuschpegel eine schadstoffaermere Abgasentwicklung. Diesen Vorteilen steht die allen keramischen Werkstoffen gemeinsame Eigenschaft der Sproedigkeit gegenueber. So koennen mechanische Spannungskonzentrationen an Rissspitzen nicht durch plastische Verformung abgebaut werden. Fuer den sicheren Einsatz im Hubkolbenmotor muessen daher die Keramikventile einer zerstoerungsfreien Bewertung unterzogen werden, um fehlerhafte Ventile zu erkennen und auszuscheiden. (orig.)

    Nuclear power plant companies make efforts to enhance the operational safety in the plant. Despite a variety of measures the number of accidents at work is still too high, esp. for external personnel. Social psychological considerations were used to develop communication tools for the elimination of hazardous situations, for instance by safety dialogues between employees. The observation of hazardous situations should trigger communication and discussion on the risk of the specific situation. In the contribution practical experiences and recommendations for the realization of a safety dialogue culture in the NPP Grafenrheinfeld are summarized and illustrated by examples.

    A modular and scalable sensor system for the estimation of position and orientation of moving objects has been developed and characterized. A sensor unit, which is mounted to the moving object, consists of acceleration -, angular rate - and magnetic field sensors for every spatial axis. Customized Kalman filter algorithms provide a robust and low latency reconstruction of the sensor's orientation. Additionally an ultrasound transducer network is used to measure the distance of a sensor unit with respect to several reference points in the room. This allows reconstruction of the absolute position using trilateration methods. The system is scalable with respect to the number of sensor units and the covered tracking volume. It is suitable for various applications for example the analysis of body movements or head tracking in augmented or virtual reality environments. (orig.)

  8. Development and application of methods and models for the calculation of spatially and temporally highly resolved emissions in Europe; Entwicklung und Anwendung von Methoden und Modellen zur Berechnung von raeumlich und zeitlich hochaufgeloesten Emissionen in Europa

    High spatial and temporal resolution models are essential for answering many questions of air quality management and climate modeling. High-resolution emission models are required to determine the concentration of pollutants using chemical transport models, and to quantify the impacts on health and environment and in particular to develop adequate countermeasures. The aim of this work is to develop methods for the calculation of spatially and temporally high-resolved emissions and to apply these exemplarily on a 1 km x 1 km and hourly resolution for the year 2008 in the EU-27 and EFTA countries. The derivation of methods for the spatial and temporal resolution of emissions with corresponding detailed equations is one of the major improvements that have been carried out in the course of this work. The improvement of the spatial distribution of emissions from the point source relevant sectors like energy supply, industry and waste management is achieved by considering sector specific diffuse emission shares. The progress of the spatial distribution of emissions from households is in particular the development of a fuel type weighted distribution over Europe. Another main focus is the development of the spatial distribution of road transport emissions. Due to the restricted access to traffic count data at the European level, methods have been established to provide reliable emissions on grid level for Europe. The progress in the spatial distribution of agricultural emissions is achieved by the consideration of diffuse shares similar to the other point source relevant sectors like energy supply or industry. In addition to the spatial distribution of the emissions the temporal resolution is a main focus of this work, since the state of knowledge of the temporal resolution of emissions in Europe is still rudimentary. Therefore, it was necessary to develop in particular time curves for the hourly resolution of emissions for the main sectors, namely electricity and heat supply, households, commercial, trade and services, road transport and agriculture. One of the main focuses of the development of temporal profiles was specifically to consider temperature data and other parameters. The derivation of the time profiles requires huge amount of indicator data for each time step. Consequently, the goal for the development of temporal profiles in Europe is to derive temperature dependent equations which are capable of generating sector specific profiles for the present as well as for the future. Based on the developed methods, for the first time the visualization of hourly emissions on a 5 km x 5 km for Europe could be shown. The basis for the visualization was the calculation of hourly emissions at a 1 km x 1 km resolution. Due to the lack of quantitative uncertainty assessments, it was necessary to identify the reasons for the lack of uncertainty analysis at the European level and also to describe the possibilities of a quantitative uncertainty analysis for high resolution emission models. Moreover, on the basis of examples it was possible to describe, how the spatial and temporal uncertainty analysis of high resolution emission models can be carried out.

    The objective of stage I of the project was the development of a complete disposal chain for problematic sewage, separating it into pure utility water, emitable gases and concentrated waste sludge. In stage II of the project, for which NUKEM GmbH was responsible, the central goal was calcination of the waste materials, i.e. thermal treatment of the organic and heavy-metal compounds and solidification and containment of the waste substances in solid bodies of any desired form that undergo minimal or no elution. Because of its complex organic/inorganic load and the difficulties inherent in its disposal, garbage water from waste disposal sites was selected as an example of problematic sewage. The scientific goal of stage I was achieved with the development and laboratory testing of a hybrid separation process based on a series of reverse-osmosis and evaporation steps and sludge centrifugation. The construction and field testing of an experimental plant was not carried out. As a result of the premature termination of stage II it was no longer possible to achieve the goal of a complete disposal chain. The funding of the project was not sufficient to cover the increased development costs of stage I required to meet the project goal. An assessment of the expected investment costs and operating costs associated with the technique on a practical scale revealed a poor cost-benefit ratio, so that these appear to be no short-term prospects of commercial exploitation.

    The concept for geothermal energy application for electricity generation can be differentiated into three compartments: In the geologic compartment cooled fluid is pressed into a porous or fractured rock formation, in the borehole compartment a hot fluid is pumped to the surface and back into the geothermal reservoir, in the aboveground facility the energy is extracted from the geothermal fluid by heat exchangers. Pressure and temperature changes influence the thermodynamic equilibrium of a system. The modeling of a geothermal system has therefore to consider besides the mass transport the heat transport and consequently changing solution compositions and the pressure/temperature effected chemical equilibrium. The GEODAT project is aimed to simulate the reactive mass transport in a geothermal reservoir in the North German basin (Gross Schoenebeck). The project was performed by the cooperation of three partners: Geoforschungsinstitut Potsdam, Bergakademie Freiberg and GRS.

    A mobile environmental laboratory was developed and successfully tested. This system is used for the remote emissions and ambient air measurements. The key instrument of this laboratory is the Kayser-Threde double pendulum interferometer K300, a field proven FT-IR system for remote emission and ambient air measurements. In addition, the laboratory contains conventional ambient air sensors and a battery system for current source free usage. Basic scientific research was necessary for the development of appropriate analysis methods for quantitative detection of emissions from smoke stacks when doing remote sensing, as well as for ambient air measurements. The mobile laboratory was used in a number of measurement campaigns. The following gaseous specimens could quantitatively analyzed: H{sub 2}O, CO{sub 2}, CO, NO, NO{sub 2}, N{sub 2}O, SO{sub 2}, CH{sub 4}, HCl, HCHO and total hydrocarbons (THC). The correspondence between the K300 remote sensing results with the measured values taken by conventional reference systems was good to excellent, in many cases considerably better than expected. (orig.) [Deutsch] Es wurde ein Umwelt-Messfahrzeug entwickelt und erfolgreich erprobt, das fuer die Fernerkundungsmessung von Emissionen und Immissionen eingesetzt werden kann. Das zentrale Messgeraet in diesem Fahrzeug ist die Kayser-Threde Eigenentwicklung K300, ein feldtaugliches FT-IR-Geraet, das zur Fernerkundungsmessung von Emissionen und Immissionen dient. Weiterhin sind u.a. in dem Fahrzeug konventionelle eignungsgepruefte Immissionsmessgeraete und eine autarke Stromversorgungseinheit eingebaut. Eine Erarbeitung fundierter wissenschaftlicher Grundlagen und daraus resultierender Analyseverfahren waren notwendig, um in Fernerkundung Emissionen aus Kraftwerken sowie Immissionen qualitativ erfassen zu koennen. In einer Reihe von Messkampagnen wurde das Messfahrzeug eingesetzt und eine Analytik fuer folgende Stoffe durchgefuehrt: H{sub 2}O, CO{sub 2}, CO, NO, NO{sub 2}, N{sub 2}O, SO{sub 2}, CH{sub 4}, HCl, HCHO und Ges.-C. Die Uebereinstimmung mit herkoemmlichen Referenzverfahren (kontinuierlich in-situ Messung von Kraftwerksemissionen, Punktsensoren bei Immissionsmessungen) war in Abhaengigkeit von den Komponenten und Messszenarien gut bis ausgezeichnet, in vielen Faellen erheblich besser als erwartet.

    To prepare the development of a water to air plate heat exchanger the state of the art, i.e. the technological knowhow and the design basis are given. The concept and ideas are presented which lead to a slightly wavy plate. Furthermore an exemplary design of a plate heat exchanger and an air-conditioning unit is described and finally the application of plate heat exchangers as direct evaporators and the potential icing problems are investigated. Comparing measured and calculated data shows that the performance of plates with plane surfaces can be predicted fairly well by the presented design methods. The performance of plates with strongly wavy surface however has to be measured. Optimization calculations yield to an air gap of slightly over 4 mm. Comparison with an air-conditioning unit demonstrates that the strongest advantage is for the air cooler (one third of the pressure loss) that a new concept of an air-conditioning unit has lower losses in the fan unit and that it does not need an eliminator. This results in half the volume for the new unit, in a pressure drop of 88%, fan power of 90% and fan revolutions of 50%. (orig./GL).

    The present book describes the development of reactor safety in German light-water nuclear power plants from the beginnings with its multifarious links to model solutions seen in other countries, national and international research projects and accidents in conventional and nuclear power plants. It contains detailed, richly illustrated articles on specific safety techniques such as rupture safety of the pressurised envelope, safeguarding of emergency cooling in the event of accidents involving coolant loss, control technology and protection of the surroundings through containment. The results of national and international risk studies are discussed. It is shown how efforts on the part of industry, government and science to enhance safety resources and improve safety culture have been driven by a civic environment in which the use of nuclear energy has become a central issue of political debate. The book is written in readily comprehensible language and offers a wealth of material for further study.

    Detailed survey on preferential fields of use, conditions of use, engine types, engine parameters, fuel consumption, and noise level of the following commercial vehicles: motor carriers, light lorries, medium-weight lorries, heavy lorries, routine buses, tourism coaches. These various requirements and fields of use show, that the development of engines for commercial vehicles must cover a very broad range. Additional demands have to be fulfilled especially where noise- and pollutant emission and engine braking effect are concerned. In Europe only smoke emission is limited but rather strictly at that. Additional boundary values for emission of nitric oxide, carbon monoxide and non-burned hydrocarbons have to be respected in the USA and Japan. Development is at present focussed on optimization and further development of injection methods in order to reduce to exhaust gas, noise and fuel consumption; methods use to this end are new electric components, increase of combustion pressure, injection pressure and increase of the number of nozzle holes.

    For the operation of mines, a complete transport control system approved for mining is to be built up. For economic reasons, high availability must be aimed at for the associated equipment. Transport vehicles should therefore be subjected to continuous diagnosis. By remedying faults in time and preventive maintenance, the frequency of failure of the transport vehicles should be reduced and their service life increased. Other aims are: Complete temporal local monitoring and control related to the work in transport, the existing radio system should transmit speech and data equally, timely and appropriate supply of the operating points by a newly created organisation connected with the transport control room. (orig.) [Deutsch] Fuer die Materialwirtschaft von Bergwerken soll ein komplettes bergbauzugelassenes Transportleitsystem aufgebaut werden. Aus wirtschaftlichen Gruenden ist fuer die dazugehoerenden Betriebsmittel eine hohe Verfuegbarkeit anzustreben. Daher sollen insbesondere Transportfahrzeuge einer kontinuierlichen Diagnose unterworfen werden. Durch fruehzeitige Fehlerbeseitigung und vorbeugende Wartungsmassnahmen soll die Ausfallhaeufigkeit der Transportfahrzeuge verringert und ihre Lebensdauer erhoeht werden. Weitere Zielvorgaben sind: lueckenlose zeitliche, oertliche und auftragsbezogene Ueberwachung und Steuerung bei der Transportabwicklung; das vorhandene Lokfunksystem soll Sprache und Daten gleichermassen uebertragen; zeit- und bedarfsgerechte Belieferung der Betriebspunkte durch eine neu zu schaffende Ablauforganisation im Verbund mit der Transportleitwarte.

    The main objective of this thesis was the development of new methods and apparatus for the efficient optimisation of electrolytes for lithium-ion-batteries. For the first time the measurement of cooling and heating curves at a large number of samples has been made possible with the apparatus described in chapter 2. Statistical error distribution was also determined. Conductivity of the samples can be measured at the same time. This makes not only a second a detection of phase transitions possible but the apparatus can also be applied to a very broad range of application like the determination of conductivity/temperature functions or the investigation of hydrolysis kinetics. The development of new techniques was necessary to reduce the high costs caused by a large number of measurement channels if conventional methods were applied. The precision of the apparatus was determined by error calculation as well as by experiments. In chapter 3 the performance of the apparatus described in chapter 2 is shown. For this purpose several phase diagrams of mixtures and melting points of pure substances were measured. A precise determination of melting diagrams of highly viscous liquids was possible the first time. If conventional methods had been applied these experiments would have taken too much time. Supercooling plays a much smaller role in these experiments in DTA or DSC experiments. Several methods for the reduction of supercooling, which impairs the analysis of data, were tested. In chapter 4 the application of the simplex method for the optimisation of the conductivity of electrolyte solutions is described. In chapter 5 a new battery testing system is presented. A limited number of these devices were produced by the author to conduct the measurements described in chapter 6. These devices can be used for many different applications and measurement methods because of their possibility to connect additional sensors, because of their flexible design, their modular control software and their control language. In chapter 6 the results of the optimisation of service life, under high temperatures and heavy load, of lithium-ion-batteries are presented. Service life was improved by the addition of additives by five times. By this addition the capacity of the batteries at the end of life was doubled. With these tests the influence of additives containing LiBOB as a salt has been analysed the first time. In chapter 7 the results of the determination of the impurities of several lots of LiBOB are shown. Methods for purification of the salt were tested. A new method for the determination of trace water impurities in LiBOB was developed, because water cannot be measured by Karl-Fischer-Titration due to side reactions. 1H-NMR spectroscopy with standard addition of a reference substance is applied to the quantitative determination of trace water in the salt in the range of several ppm.

    At present, mainly biogas plants with liquid manure as basis substrate are operated in the Federal Republic of Germany. Since the introduction of the Renewable Energy Resources Act in the year 2004, regenerating raw materials dominate as co-substrate beside organic residual substances. In the context of the composite material ''Biogas Crops network '', the mono fermentation is examined of grass silage in a two-phase procedure guidance using bioleaching. Thus the turnover rate of the energy stored in the organic mass is to be increased to methane. The focus of the investigations lies on the improvement of the hydrolysis achievement. Despite the high methane formation in the hydrolysis stage, in the thermophilic hydrolysis the highest degree of degradation of oTS and the highest yields of methane are received in the overall system.

    Fibre Bragg Gratings (FBG) as strain sensors are implemented in those areas, where conventional electrical strain gauges reach their limits (for example in areas of high voltage, strong electro-magnetic fields, medical technology, safety relevant and radiation-exposed areas). Subject of this work is the surface application and the qualification of these sensors as strain sensors on different materials. A certified and proven method of application for surface mounted sensors is not known yet. The determination of the strain transfer and the definition of a strain transfer factor out of the relation between the Bragg wavelength change and the strain of the specimen have not yet been validated experimentally with an independent validation method. The development of an experimental methodology using a physically independent optical reference method for the determination of the strain transfer between the specimen and the FBG strain sensor is the main focus of this work. The influencing parameters on the strain distribution have been quantified experimentally and the change in Bragg wavelength has been investigated in relation to the strain measured by strain gauges. The material properties of the adhesives have been partly investigated. On the basis of these experiments a testing facility for surface applied FBG strain sensors has been developed. The functionality of the experimental methodology for the determination of the strain factor has been shown. The characterisation of the testing facility and the validity of FBG strain sensors through the experimental methodology inhere developed have been started. For the case of the strain determination in wind turbine rotor blades specially adapted FBG patches have been developed and qualified. An integration technique for FBG strain sensors into the rotor blade has been developed as well. As a first step of standardizing this measurement technique a national standard has been developed under the contribution of the author. (orig.)

    CAD systems have long been an aid in German hard coal mining for reducing costs in all technical planning tasks. The use of computers will offer as yet unused possibilities for further cost savings in the future. For this purpose, this book introduces a new software concept for the technical planning for machines in the mines of the Ruhr. By the continued and thorough use of the potential of modern computer techniques, by the application of the knowledge of planning science orientated towards practice and by transferring computer-aided planning applications from other branches of industry, a further contribution is to be made to reducing costs in technical planning. The heart of the future technical planning workplace will be a graphically orientated surface with the three-dimensional representation of the pit structure on the screen. On this surface, after choosing the work area in the pit structure, there is access to the available software tools. These support the planning engineer in information and design work (connection to databank, 2D/3D-CAD, libraries of operating means and standard parts) and give support to the method of procedure (through expert systems, sample specifications, checklists). They will also offer help in inspection and decision-making (by simulation and calculation routines, expert systems) and in supporting publicity activities (text processing, desktop publishing). The computer-aided planning system of the future will develop from the two-dimensional design environment usual today into a comprehensive integrated 3D engineering system. (orig.) [Deutsch] CAD-Systeme sind im deutschen Steinkohlenbergbau seit Jahren wichtige Hilfsmittel zur Kostenreduzierung bei allen technischen Planungsaufgaben. Auch in Zukunft wird der Einsatz von Rechnern noch ungenutzte Moeglichkeiten fuer weitere Kosteneinsparungen bieten. Zu diesem Zweck wird in der vorliegenden Arbeit ein neues Softwarekonzept fuer die maschinentechnische Planung in den Stabsstellen der Schachtanlagen an der Ruhr vorgestellt. Durch die fortgesetzte und konsequente Nutzung der Potentiale moderner Rechnertechnologie, durch die praxisorientierte Anwendung der Erkenntnisse der Planungswissenschaften und durch die Uebertragung rechnergestuetzter Planungsanwendungen aus anderen Industriebranchen soll ein weiterer Beitrag zur Kostensenkung in der technischen Planung geleistet werden. Kern des zukuenftigen maschinentechnischen Planungsarbeitsplatzes wird eine graphisch orientierte Oberflaeche mit der dreidimensionalen Darstellung des Grubengebaeudes am Bildschirm sein. In dieser Oberflaeche erfolgt nach der Wahl des Arbeitsbereiches im Grubengebaeude der Zugriff auf die verfuegbaren Softwaretools. Diese dienen zur Unterstuetzung des Planungsingenieurs bei Informations- und Konstruktionsaufgaben (Datenbankanschluss, 2D/3D-CAD, Betriebsmittel- und Normteilbibliotheken) und zur vorgehensmethodischen Unterstuetzung (durch Expertensysteme, Musterpflichtenhefte, Checklisten). Ferner werden sie Kontroll- und Entscheidungshilfen (durch Simulations- und Berechnungsroutinen, Expertensysteme) sowie Unterstuetzung bei Publikationstaetigkeiten (Textverarbeitung, Desktop-Publishing) bieten. Das rechnergestuetzte Planungssystem der Zukunft wird sich aus der heute ueblichen zweidimensionalen Konstruktionsumgebung zu einem umfassenden integrierten 3D-Engineering-System weiterentwickeln.

    Carbon products, as for instance anodes for the aluminium industry, are worldwide baked in annular chamber furnaces with a lump fill of granular coke. The large thermal mass of this coke fill requires a high energy consumption and long baking times. This fill shall be replaced by a ceramic coating material in order to obtain shorter baking times and lower energy consumption. Within this development project, various coating materials, application techniques and baking processes were tested. The results show that carbon products of perfect quality can be obtained within much shorter baking times. In practice-like tests at a German factory producing refractory products it was found during a test period of one year, that the energy savings amount to 70%. For the production of carbon anodes in the aluminium industry energy savings up to 50% are possible, according to our test results. The corresponding plant designs have been developed within the framework of the R and D project. With 5 refs., 3 tabs., 10 figs.

    Microstructural evolution during aging treatment in a high tensile precipitation hardening stainless steel (X4CrNiSiTi14-7) has been investigated. Matrix consists of martensitic structure and the combined addition of Si and Ti causes an intermetallic phase type Ni{sub 16}Ti{sub 6}Si{sub 7} that precipitates with-in grains and enhance precipitation strengthening. This material shows a good combination of high strength and ductility. Light-Optical microscopy, electron back scattered diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis have been used to study the microstructural evolution during aging. It has been found that precipitations of various kinds are taking place during aging treatments including nm-scaled G-phase and various carbides. Higher aging temperatures lead to reverse transformation of martensite to austenite. (orig.)

How can employees be supported during the process of company acquisition? How can the existential crises of young adults that were triggered through institutional work experiences be met and coped with? How can violence among children and adolescents be prevented? Seventeen contributions in Petia GENKOVA's and Andrea E. ABELE's anthology provide answers to these questions. There are four chapters focusing on: 1. female employees and their career, 2. patterns of socialization, 3. self-socialization as a means of gaining basic competencies, and 4. diversity and political culture. A short description of the meaning of a hidden curriculum in times of globalization follows an introduction to the contents of the book and information about the authors. All articles included are then commented upon. It should be noted that the anthology contains a variety of themes and aspects regarding globalization as well as innovative and interactive research methods, although the qualitative methods applied are limited to participative observation and expert interviews. The weakness of the anthology is that due to the complex and abstract linguistic usage, the concepts have not been made sufficiently accessible and straightforward.

    In this work, the effects of various single substances (pesticides and metals) as well as binary mixtures of them on zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos and larvae were assessed on biochemical, developmental, and organism levels. The influence of oxygen depletion on the toxicity of substances was included as an additional interacting factor. To analyse complex interactions, the predator-prey behaviour between zebrafish and chironomid larvae (Chironomus riparius) was investigated. Another aspect of this work were studies on complex mixtures of hydrocarbons such as the water accommodated fraction of crude oil, and their effects on the behaviour of marine amphipods (Corophium volutator), as well as semi-field experiments with freshwater amphipods (Gammarus pulex). My investigations showed that effects of various substances in environmentally relevant concentration ranges are exerted on different levels of biological organisation, both in amphipods and fish. It could be shown that abiotic parameters modify the effects of pollutants. When investigating mixtures of substances with similar or different modes of action, additivity occurred in the majority of cases which usually were consistent for all investigated parameters (enzyme activity, locomotor activity, developmental impairment, mortality). Effects of the neurotoxic insecticide chlorpyrifos on the interactions between fish and chironomids could be detected in environmentally relevant concentration ranges. The effects of the water accommodated fraction of crude oil which represents a great risk for aquatic organisms in costal habitats were displayed by alterations in the behaviour of the marine amphipod Corophium volutator. For a continuous monitoring of water quality in monitoring stations, the resident amphipod Gammarus pulex proved to be a suitable and relevant test organism, as it responds sensitive to complex mixtures of pollutants in surface waters. In summary, behavioural parameters proved to be integrative, relevant and sensitive parameters for the different research topics/questions in the present work, and can also be recommended to be used to analyse interspecific interactions. To judge on the effects of pollutants on aquatic organisms in the environment, abiotic parameters as well as mixtures of pollutants should be included. Additionally, biochemical measurements as well as behavioural tests are important, to adequately assess the toxicity of pollutants. Therefore, for an integrated understanding of the effects of chemicals on aquatic organisms, a battery of different methods as well as more realistic exposure scenarios should be taken into account.

  16. Development of proton conducting materials and membranes based on lanthanum tungstate for hydrogen separation from gas mixtures; Entwicklung protonenleitender Werkstoffe und Membranen auf Basis von Lanthan-Wolframat fuer die Wasserstoffabtrennung aus Gasgemischen

    Lanthanum tungstate La{sub 6-x}WO{sub 12-δ} (named LWO) is a ceramic material with mixed protonic electronic conductivity. Thereby it is a good candidate membrane material for hydrogen separation from synthesis gas in a fossil pre-combustion power plant. This work shows a material optimization by substitution targeted to clearly enhance the mixed conductivity and thereby the hydrogen flow through the LWO membrane. The first part of the work shows the synthesis and characterization of unsubstituted LWO. It points out that monophase LWO powder can be reproducibly synthesized. The La/W-ratio has to be considerably smaller than the nominal ratio of La/W = 6.0. It also depends on the used sintering conditions. Different relevant properties of LWO like stability in conditions close to application, thermal expansion, sintering behavior or microstructure were determined. Furthermore, the electrical conductivity of the material was investigated. LWO exhibits a prevailing protonic conductivity up to 750 C in wet atmospheres. Under dry atmospheres n-type conductivity was dominating. Oxygen ion and n-type conductivity dominated in wet and dry atmospheres above 750 C. The main part of the work is concerned with the development of new LWO based materials by substitutions. The aim is to achieve an improved mixed protonic electronic conductivity. Substitution elements for lanthanum side were Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba, Ce, Nd, Tb, Y and Al, while for the tungsten side Mo, Re and Ir were used. The total conductivity of the developed materials was investigated and compared to that of the unsubstituted LWO. The substitution of lanthanum led to no appreciable enhancement of the conductivity whereas the substitution of tungsten with 20 mol% molybdenum or 20 mol% rhenium clearly improved it. This caused a hydrogen flow about seven times higher for 20 mol% molybdenum- and about ten times higher for 20 mol% rhenium-substituted LWO in comparison with the unsubstituted LWO at 700 C. In the last part of the work first asymmetric membranes consisting of a thin functional layer and a supporting substrate to enhance the hydrogen flow by reducing the membrane thickness were developed. It succeeded in manufacturing gastight samples. However the samples became highly curved during the sintering. Therefore, further intensive component development will be required.

  17. Synthesis and characterization of MoS{sub 2} cocatalysts for H{sub 2}-generation; Darstellung und Charakterisierung von MoS{sub 2} Cokatalysatoren fuer die H{sub 2}-Entwicklung

    As a suitable alternative to fossil fuels and nuclear energy light induced generation of H{sub 2} represents a trend-setting research area in the field of regenerative energy. Therefore photocatalysts, which provide surface sites for light driven reduction of protons to H{sub 2}, are being investigated and developed. Enhancement of photocatalytic systems can be achieved by the usage of cocatalysts, which simplify charge separation and provide additional catalytic active sites as well. In the present work cocatalysts based on MoS{sub 2} were synthesized, characterized and investigated for photocatalytic H{sub 2} generation. MoS{sub 2} cocatalysts were synthesized by thermal decomposition of tetraalkyl ammonium thiomolybdates with varying carbon content in the organic cation and by mechanical treatment of bulk MoS{sub 2} respectively. Hence, samples with differing chemical composition as well as structural properties were obtained. Based on these findings relations between chemical composition, microstructural properties and photocatalytic activity were supposed to reveal. Nanoparticulate molybdenum sulfides resulted in both synthetic routes. Thermal decomposition of tetraalkyl ammonium thiomolybdates yielded in carbon containing molybdenum sulfide nanocomposites, in which carbon and sulfur content and the crystallite size as well varied with the carbon amount in the precursor. Additionally a composite with a significant enlarged interlayer distance between the MoS{sub 2} layers was obtained by thermal decomposition of (Ph{sub 4}P){sub 2}MoS{sub 4}. Such interlayer expansion could be explained by an insertion of in situ generated Ph{sub 3}PS- and (Ph{sub 4}P){sub 2}S-molecules between the MoS{sub 2} layers. While Ph{sub 3}PS-molecules were bonded through Mo-S-bonds to the MoS{sub 2} layers, (Ph{sub 4}P){sub 2}S-molecules remained free in rotation between MoS{sub 2} sheets. The mechanical treatment of bulk MoS{sub 2} resulted in different-sized MoS{sub 2} nanoparticles as a function of milling time but with the same chemical composition. In doing so, the MoS{sub 2} stacking was reduced more rapidly than the slab length, yielding in increasing aspects ratios and thus affecting the particle shape. All nanosized cocatalysts exceeded bulk MoS{sub 2} in light driven hydrogen generation. The enhancement of H{sub 2} generation on MoS{sub 2} was achieved by addition of carbon, improving the electron conductivity and suppressing recombination processes. The positive influence of MoS{sub 2} edge sites on H{sub 2} generation was proofed by structural properties of the cocatalysts. Additionally, the importance of the particle shape on photocatalytic properties was demonstrated. Photocatalytic investigations on novel transition metal sulfides and -oxides for H{sub 2} evolution yielded in a rash of promising materials.

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) reports on work done concerning the development of a new type of frequency converter for drive applications. The converter is free of the disadvantages incurred when using voltage converters, where it is difficult to reduce standby power consumption since much energy is stored in the intermediate circuit condensers. The new current converter completely provides the desired advantages (recuperation, standby). In addition, it is suited to industrial applications with costs that are comparable to or lower than the systems used today. The report discusses the technical solution chosen, its applications and the costs involved. Prototypes are described and the results of measurements made are discussed.

    The available products on the German market were found out and given an opinion on. The offered systems do not meet all requirements on a competent and adequate education in the field of photovoltaic. Within the scope of the intention a photovoltaic-experimental system for the instruction at schools will be developed. As a complete system with the components fit into a special bag it should master all tass. After providing the first draft, an examination for using components being already on the market followed, as well as the experimental building up and testing of new developments. Selecting the most qualified components, several models were manufactured and later on a complete system was built up with having regard to the still necessary modifications. Ensuing the didactic material was achieved and the complete system was tested in practical operation. The result is a photovoltaic-experimental system capable of being produced in series production according to the target. With the developed product it is possible to show and to impart quick and easy the fundamentals in the field of photovoltaic. (orig.)

    Facing the global challenge of climate change and finiteness of fossil resources renewable resources are becoming more and more important at present. At the moment, biomass is the most important renewable resource in Germany. The rising cultivation of energy crops, supported by political instruments, has a negative environmental impact on the natural resources soil, water and biodiversity. The existing agricultural legislation can not avoid such negative environmental impact. Thus, it seems reasonable to realign the existing support scheme for energy crop use to a system that operates regional and crop specific but includes the whole agricultural sector as well. Such a newly designed system could be realised by a differentiated premium. This instrument is most suitable to prevent environmental damage due to the advantages of a regional use and a differentiation of crop species. The aim of this work has been to identify an easy applicable and transferable control mechanism for an environmental friendly support scheme of energy crops and also to develop and test a method as basis for this control mechanism. The design of a regional and crop specific premium has been described as a possible political instrument. The method has been developed and tested within a case study for Bavaria, one of Germany's federal states. For the investigation the level of agrarian production regions has been chosen. For each region it has been assessed which crops should and which ones should not be cultivated. For this, the actual environmental risk for the agricultural activity has been calculated by using landscape analysis on the basis of environmental risk assessment. Agrarian statistics (InVeKos) and digital GIS-based site data has been used as data base. With this data base it has been possible to illustrate the environmental risk for the natural resources soil, water and biodiversity in sufficient exactness. The comparison of the periods 1994-96 and 2005-07 approved that the energy crops rape seed and corn lead to an increase of environmental impact on regional scale. Using the method developed in this work for a scenario for the year 2020 leads to a decrease of negative environmental impact. This result shows that the developed method suits for an environmental friendly support scheme. Developing a regional and crop specific premium based on the designed method leads to needed capital of about 128 Mio. Euro per year (338 Euro/ha) up to 146 Mio. Euro per year (445 Euro/ha). In contrast to this, the capital needed for the NaWaRo-Bonus in 2007 in Bavaria has been about 47 Mio Euro (605 Euro/ha). The disestablishment of the hitherto unspecific support system (NaWaRo-Bonus, biofuel Quota and tax exemption) is preconditioned for the new support system based on the regional and crop specific premium. This premium can be integrated in the second pillar of agricultural support in the EU. The integration is possible in the Annexes I or III of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD). Due to the simple appliance of the regional and crop specific premium the effort for controlling seems to be very low. In contrast, the needed governmental capital might be disadvantageous for implementing such a premium. Because of this, it should be considered to refinance the governmental costs by an energy crop fee rendered by energy companies. (orig.)

    Due to the coming into effect of the twenty-second BImSchV comprehensive investigations on the ambient air quality have been carried out in the city of Hagen in recent years by means of measurement and modelling. High concentrations of nitrogen dioxide and respirable dust have been found along the main streets and the roads belonging to the city ring road system. Main cause of the present situation is road traffic, esp. heavy duty vehicles (HDV). Therefore the concept of measures for the implementation of the air monitoring plan and the action plan set up by the project group includes a HDV-routing system and dynamic, immission-relevant re-routing of traffic. Through this research project the practicability and the effects on air quality of the dynamic, immission-relevant re-routing of HDV-traffic will especially be examined within the highly polluted area of the ''Maerkischer Ring''. By making use of the control programme simDRIVE this innovative concept allows temporary closures of the ''Maerkischer Ring'' for HDV-traffic if transgression of critical limit values is prognosticated due to traffic volume and meteorological circumstances. During these closure periods HDV-traffic will be diverted to alternative and previously determined routes by dynamic and static traffic signs in order to guarantee that intended destinations can be reached. With the help of this research project it should be demonstrated in addition (a) if and how this particular method for NO{sub 2} can also be applied on the reduction of respirable dust, (b) how this measure affects the situation of air pollution regarding respirable dust in other parts of Hagen and (c) if the transfer of methods for the use in other cities is possible.

    The safety and reliability of nuclear power plants of the fourth generation is an important issue. It is based on a reliable interpretation of the components for which, among other fracture mechanical material properties are required. The existing irradiation in the power plants significantly affects the material properties which therefore need to be determined on irradiated material. Often only small amounts of irradiated material are available for characterization. In that case it is not possible to manufacture sufficiently large specimens, which are necessary for fracture mechanical testing in agreement with the standard. Small specimens must be used. From this follows the idea of this study, in which the fracture toughness can be predicted with the developed method based on tests of small specimens. For this purpose, the fracture process including the crack growth is described with a continuum mechanical approach using the finite element method and the cohesive zone model. The experiments on small specimens are used for parameter identification of the cohesive zone model. The two parameters of the cohesive zone model are determined by tensile tests on notched specimens (cohesive stress) and by parameter fitting to the fracture behavior of smalls specimens (cohesive energy). To account the different triaxialities of the specimens, the cohesive stress is used depending on the triaxiality. After parameter identification a large specimen can be simulated with the cohesive zone parameters derived from small specimens. The predicted fracture toughness of this big specimen fulfills the size requirements in the standard (ASTM E1820 or ASTM E399) in contrast to the small specimen. This method can be used for ductile and brittle material behavior and was validated in this work. In summary, this method offers the possibility to determine the fracture toughness indirectly based on small specimen testing. Main advantage is the low required specimen volume. Thereby massively costs can be saved, especially in the irradiated state.

    The main goals of the project carried out at Bielefeld University on ''The fight against desertification and the remediation of the salt deserts near the Aral Sea'' were as follows: a) to test methods for counteracting desertification by phytomelioration of saline soils; b) to develop plausible nature conservation strategies for the region and preserve biodiversity; and c) to manage resources at the local and regional level. Ad a) The planting was done in November 2002 and March 2004 on an area of 248.3 ha. Three species were tested: Haloxylon aphyllum, Halocnemum strobilaceum and Tamarix hispida. Various planting methods were used. Ad b) A model for preserving biodiversity in the region was developed using the nature conservation area Barsa Kelmes as an example. The flora and vegetation of the core area (the former island Barsa Kelmes) were inventoried, and measures were taken to develop the above-named nature conservation area. Ad c) The villages Bogen and Karateren were used as model objects for cooperation within the region. These villages belong to the Aralsk region (Raion). They are the administrative centres of their respective sub-districts (Aulsoviet), Karateren and Bogen. An intensive cooperation has evolved with the relevant NGOs. In the village Bogen a bureau for the NGO and an information centre for nature resource conservation were established.

    Based on the investigations of project VITE-BEMS, a computer-assisted method for commissioning and acceptance testing of complex digital building control systems is presented. Tests are classified as either open-loop or closed-loop tests. A test stand was constructed in which the control systems to be tested were connected to a building and facility simulation system in order to model the behaviour of the real facility for which the control system is intended. The models were adapted and optimized with a view to simplicity and easy convertibility. [German] Aufbauend auf dem bereits bestehenden Lebenszyklusansatz fuer die Simulation und den Arbeiten, die im Projekt VITE-BEMS /6/ durchgefuehrt wurden, wird eine computergestuetzte Vorgehensweise fuer die Inbetriebnahme und die Abnahme von komplexen digitalen Regelsystemen im Bereich der Gebaeude- und RLT-Technik vorgestellt. Nach einer kritischen Betrachtung der Abnahmeprozesse in der gaengigen Praxis, werden hierfuer zunaechst Testprozeduren entwickelt. Diese Testprozeduren fuer die Inbetriebnahme und Abnahme von digitalen Regelungssysteme koennen unterteilt werden in Tests, bei denen das jeweilige Regelungssystem mit einer virtuellen heiz- und raumlufttechnischen Anlage in Wechselwirkung steht (Closed-Loop-Tests) und solchen, bei denen Regelfunktionen ohne eine direkte Rueckkopplung zur zu regelnden Anlage ueberprueft werden (Open-Loop-Tests). Durch diese unterschiedlichen Prozeduren wird eine systematische Ueberpruefung der Regelfunktionen, die vom Planer der jeweiligen Anlage spezifiziert und gefordert werden, ermoeglicht. Entsprechend den Anforderungen dieser Testprozeduren wird auf einem ebenfalls neu entwickelten Emulationsversuchsstand eine virtuelle Testumgebung aufgebaut, auf der die Prozeduren an den zu testenden Regelgeraeten ablaufen. In dieser Testumgebung wird das zu pruefende Regelungssystem an eine Anlagen- und Gebaeudesimulation angeschlossen. Mit der Simulation wird das Verhalten der realen Anlage, in der das jeweilige Regelungssystem normalerweise betrieben wird, nachgebildet. Die Modelle fuer die einzelnen heiz- und raumlufttechnischen Komponenten in dieser Simulation werden so angepasst und verbessert, dass sie mit moeglichst wenigen Parametern das reale Verhalten moeglichst exakt nachbilden. Bei der Ueberarbeitung der Simulation wird neben der Verfuegbarkeit der benoetigten Parameter vor allem darauf geachtet, dass die Simulationen stets auf einfache und schnelle Weise so umgeruestet werden koennen, dass die in einer Emulationsumgebung einsetzbar sind.

    The development of activity measurement techniques started together with the discovery of radioactivity in 1896. A great impulse was given to the development by the rising of nuclear technology in the 50s. The detection techniques used today have been developed mainly at that time and in the following years. With the huge progress in semiconductor industry and in computer technology, the application of measuring processes developed then has become much simpler. Today, even commercial measuring systems for low-level-measurements of radioactivity are available. (orig.)

    The relations between the thermal processes around a 200 m deep geothermal well and the petrographic composition were studied using the fibre optic temperature sensing method. The heat injection and heat extraction properties depend on the petrographic properties (porosity, permeability) of the individual layers. Coarse sandy, water saturated layers have good properties, silts and clays have poor properties for het storage and heat extraction. Heat transport occurs in well defined layers with good hydraulic properties and can be explained by a convective heat transport model. (orig.) [Deutsch] Mit faseroptischen Temperaturmessungen in einer Erdwaermesonde (EWS)-Bohrung wurde der Zusammenhang zwischen den thermischen Prozessen unmittelbar um die EWS und dem petrographischen Aufbau untersucht. Das Waermeein- bzw. -ausspeisevermoegen haengt von der petrographischen Ausbildung der einzelnen Schichten ab (Porositaet, Kf-Wert). Grobsandige bis kiesige, wassergesaettigte Schichten haben guenstige, schluffig-tonige unguenstige Eigenschaften fuer die Waermeaus- bzw. -einspeisung. Der wesentliche Waermetransport erfolgt in definierten geringmaechtigen Schichten mit guten hydraulischen Eigenschaften. Der Waermetransport in poroesen, wassergefuellten Schichten kann mit einem konvektiven Waermetransportmodell erklaert werden. (orig.)

    In order to meet the cost targets of PEM fuel cells for commercialization significant cost reductions of cell stack components like membrane/electrode assemblies and bipolar plates have become key aspects of research and development. Central topics of his work are the bipolar plates and humidification for portable applications. Best results concerning conductivity of an extensive screening of a variety of carbon polymer compounds with polypropylene as matrix could be achieved with the carbon black/graphite/polypropylene-base system. Successful tests of this material in a fuel cell stack could be performed as well as the proof of suitability concerning material- and manufacturing costs. Dependent on application a decrease of material cost to 2 Euro/kg to 1,8 Euro/kW seems to be possible. Finally bipolar plates consisting of a selected carbon polymer compound were successfully integrated and tested in a 20-cell stack which was implemented in a portable PEFC-demonstrator unit with a power output between 50 and 150 W.

    As this publication shows, recent changes in the energy sector have been so momentous that its development over the past years can hardly be compared with that of any other branch of industry. The need to meet a continuously growing body of regulatory requirements, technical innovations such as smart metering infrastructures and the complex tasks associated with an efficient decentralised energy supply all place high demands on the energy sector and its IT infrastructure. Especially the technologies surrounding smart metering confront companies of the energy sector with great challenges. Optimisation of process costs along the entire value chain will in future be an important ingredient to successful business in the sector. Thus, selecting the right accounting and billing solutions and putting them to their best possible use is a prerequisite for successful market cultivation. Based on an empirical study the present publication undertakes to determine what factors are relevant in selecting and operating IT solutions in the energy sector and what marketing design concepts software producers should opt for in order to ensure long-term customer satisfaction and hence loyalty.

    The finite nature of fossil fuel supply and the growing environmental awareness become increasingly stronger motivations for the development of efficient gas turbines and jet engines for power generation or as engines for land-, sea- and water-based vehicles. One concept developed for this purpose are thermal barrier coatings, where the thermal load of components is reduced by applying a ceramic coating onto the components. In this work the possibility to use a laser thermal shock facility for thermo-cyclic testing of thermal barrier coatings is examined. A focused laser beam is used for heating the sample and a homogeneous temperature distribution on the sample surface is achieved by the used trajectory and radial adjusted laser power. The required improvements of the existing testing facility are explained, including the development of a new sample holder and of the testing and evaluation routines for the experiments. For the assessment of the initiation and evolution of damages, acoustic emission and thermographic methods are used. The possibilities and limits of these methods are assessed during the experiments. The work also includes an extensive temperature dependent characterisation of the ceramic material used for the thermal barrier coating. In this part, the measurement of the Young's modulus by a dynamic method is to be highlighted, as this is a rarely used technique. The characterisations show the expected values, except for a lower porosity as expected by the manufacturer and no significant phase changes during isothermal heat treatments. To reach sample surface temperatures above 1000 C, it is necessary to increase the absorption by an additional coating of magnetite. The temperature distribution on the surface is measured by an infrared camera, which is calibrated for this purpose. With the incorporated active air cooling of the sample backside, the temperature gradient can be controlled, but still leaves room for improvements. Already without cooling, experiments can be completed, where the thermal loads are highly reproducible and comparable to real operation conditions. The development and evolution of delamination damages can be observed by acoustic emission and thermographic methods. Sound location using the acoustic emission data shows the limits of the applied equipment. Good sound location results can be achieved by a time-consuming manual routine, but the results are highly dependent on the signal quality. A reduced zone location algorithm with an automatic analysis shows satisfying results. A combination of the zone location results, the analysis of the acoustic emission data and the thermographic analysis of the infrared camera data allows a very good visualisation of the damage evolution. First experiments showed delaminations located in the ceramic layer near the topcoat-bondcoatboundary, which corresponds to a failure mode induced by high cyclic loads of the samples. The use of a focused laser beam results in a local hot spot at the laser spot during heating. This adds a thermal shock component to the thermo-cyclic load during the experiments.

    In the frame of the reported project, together with the programme partners, optimization of service relevant properties as well as modification of manufacturing procedures for the forged alloy Nimonic 101 were achieved. These results are directly implementable into serial production and cause improved service reliability and economic benefit. For the forged alloy Udimet 720 materials data were generated in accordance with the programme plan. The final evaluation for this alloy will be performed by the project partner Siemens-KWU. The qualification of fine-grained investment cast blades of IN 792 for large rear=stage blading is not yet fully completed. Three major questions are lacking final answers: - Does a stress rupture strength advantage exist over the forged alloy Udimet 720/coarse/grained? - Can a high cycle fatigue strength as high as that for Udimet 720/coarse-grained be met reproducibly? - Does the investment cast blades offer a cost advantage over the forged ones - technical qualification assumed? The programme helped significantly in preparing the right answers to these questions. (orig.) [Deutsch] Im Rahmen des berichteten Teilvorhabens ist es in Zusammenarbeit mit den Projektpartnern gelungen, fuer die Schmiedelegierung Nimonic 101 die betriebsrelevanten Eigenschaften zu optimieren, sowie die Schaufelherstellung so zu modifizieren, dass die Betriebszuverlaessigkeit verbessert wird. Diese Ergebnisse sind direkt in die Serienfertigung implementierbar und damit wirtschaftlich nutzbar. Fuer die Schmiedelegierung Udimet 720 wurden im Rahmen des Projektverbundes Werkstoffkennwerte ermittelt. Die Gesamtauswertung fuer diesen Werkstoff erfolgt von Projektpartner Siemens-KWU. Das Bild zur Qualifikation feinkoerniger Feingussschaufeln ist noch nicht restlos klar. Drei wesentliche, noch abschliessend zu beantwortende Fragen sind: - Ergibt sich ein Zeitstandfestigkeitsvorteil gegenueber der Schmiedelegierung Udimet 720/Grobkorn? - Laesst sich reproduzierbar eine Schwingfestigkeit einstellen, die der des Udiment 720/GK entspricht? - Bietet die Feingussschaufel einen nennenswerten Preisvorteil gegenueber der Schmiedeschaufel, falls die technische Qualifikation erfuellt ist? Das Vorhaben hat entscheidend dazu beigetragen, die Beantwortung dieser Fragen vorzubereiten. (orig.)

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) presents the results of the second phase of the development of a small-scale gas turbine that can use lean gas. The aim of this project phase - the design of a project development unit (PDU) for a micro-turbine with a nominal grid feeding power of 2.4 kWe is discussed. Parallel to this work, peripheral components such as burner and recovery device shall also be designed, produced and tested in the laboratories of the Swiss Center for Appropriate Technology and Social Ecology. The burner is specially designed for the combustion of lean gases. The goals of the following project phase, including the production and field-testing of the unit are discussed. On the basis of this PDU, a prototype lean gas micro-turbine with 9 kWe electrical generation power is to be derived. Project goals, work done and results obtained are reviewed, as is further work to be done.

    The availability of metals in the biosphere is determined by the chemical state. Spectroscopic methods are appropriate for the analysis of speciation - the problem is the data processing. In the frame of the thesis the use of the software PARAFAC was used to analyze the excitation spectra of uranyl (VI) hydrolysis. It was shown that modern mathematical tools are essential for the data processing. The range of applicability covers deprotonation processes up to complex biochemical processes.

    An hydraulic separation of a well and the cavern can be necessary for different workover applications, e.g. casing milling or underreaming. The separation is needed to ensure a mud circulation during such operations. In that case a barrier is set after flooding the cavern, which will then be used as a mechanical abutment for the cement bridge. If the diameter of the cavern neck has been enlarged due to e.g. unwanted leaching processes or unstabilized underreaming processes, it might get impossible to set a standard plug with the available technologies into those diameters. Therefore UGS GmbH has developed a mechanical plug, which is set hydraulically. The so called 'Spider Plug' is used as basis for a cement bridge and can be removed by drilling after the workover has been done. Depending on the dimension of the setting tool a cavern neck up to 50'' diameter can be plugged by the 'Spider Plug'. Up to now a number of successful operations on different locations has shown, that the 'Spider Plug' is a practicable and cost-efficient solution for a mechanical abutment of large cavern necks.

    This thesis is divided into two parts of improvements to the accelerator control system of the S-DALINAC. In the first part the finalisation of the EPICS migration to the S-DALINAC control system is presented. Therefore the input-outputcontrollers(IOCs) of the controls of magnets, the targets, and the video multiplexer are included into the EPICS framework. In addition to that the operator interfaces(OPIs) of the controls of magnets and targets are implemented. To configure these IOCs and OPIs a relational database is used, which was extended within this thesis. In- and output of magnet control is provided by rotating knobs and touch screens, which hardware were modernised. The realised steps are doing their part in reducing perturbations and ease up operations since. The second part covers the automated optimisation of beam optics. Therefore the software AreaDetector was integrated into the S-DALINAC control system. The functionality is shown by the example of setting a quadrupol magnet deflection-free fully automated. Also the flexibility enables other setups to be automatically optimised in the future.

    A finite vomume method for calculation of steady and unsteady flow on unstructured grids is parallelized by local spatial and time decomposition. In the first case, a parallel variant of the conjugated gradient method with multiple local preconditioning is formulated and analyzed. The method is tested for simple applications (e.g. flow around a cylinder). The second part of the publication describes a direct numerical simulation of turbulent flow around a sphere at a Reynolds number of 5000 (based on flow velocity and sphere diameter). Current and Reynolds-averaged flow fields are discussed. Particular emphasis is placed on coordinate-independent representation of the anisotropy ratios of the Reynolds tensor and dissipation tensor.

    An exhaust gas washer for stationary operated diesel engines has been developed and tested in combination with a heat pump. The exhaust gas is washed with its own condensate in a packed column. The condensate circulation is performed by mammoth pumps. The pollutant emissions have been reduced depending on operating conditions (speed, temperature, pH of the condensate) by the following rates: HC by 30-85%, aldehydes by 35-99%, phenols by 50-80%, PAH by 80-95%, soot by 25-70%, SO/sub 2/ by 65-90%, NOsub(x) by 5-20%. It has been possible to reduce the NOsub(x) emissions by 75% at an inconsiderably increased fuel consumption by recycling exhaust gases. But higher soot emissions have to be accepted in this case. The condensate is completely degradable in a septic tank after being mixed with waste water containing phosphate. With 42 refs., 13 tabs., 32 figs.

    Purpose: To build an infrastructure that enables radiologists on-call and external users a teleradiological access to the HTML-based image distribution system inside the hospital via internet. In addition, no investment costs should arise on the user side and the image data should be sent renamed using cryptographic techniques. Materials and Methods: A pure HTML-based system manages the image distribution inside the hospital, with an open source project extending this system through a secure gateway outside the firewall of the hospital. The gateway handles the communication between the external users and the HTML server within the network of the hospital. A second firewall is installed between the gateway and the external users and builds up a virtual private network (VPN). A connection between the gateway and the external user is only acknowledged if the computers involved authenticate each other via certificates and the external users authenticate via a multi-stage password system. All data are transferred encrypted. External users get only access to images that have been renamed to a pseudonym by means of automated processing before. Results: With an ADSL internet access, external users achieve an image load frequency of 0.4 CT images per second. More than 90% of the delay during image transfer results from security checks within the firewalls. Data passing the gateway induce no measurable delay. (orig.)

    Within the scope of this thesis a pulsed source of spin polarized electrons Photo-CATCH was designed, constructed, characterized and has been put into operation. This source is based on the photoemission of spin-polarized electrons from GaAs-photocathodes. Both the design of the electron gun, consisting of an ultra-high vacuum chamber and an electrode with Pierce geometry, as well as the properties of the electron beam have been simulated with CST Studio. Results were a maximum electric field of (0.064±0.001) MV/m/kV on the electrode surface and a beam emittance as a function of the radius of the laser spot on the photocathode of element of {sub n,x}=(1.7478(4).10{sup -4}.(r)/(μm)+2.8(18).10{sup -5}) mm mrad at a beam current of 100 μA. Currently Photo-CATCH provides electron beams with an energy of 60 keV, which can be expanded up to 100 keV by upgrading the high-voltage power supply. The electron gun has an inverted-geometry insulator to ensure a compact design of the ultra-high vacuum chamber and a maximum person- and machine-safety from sparkovers. Since the properties of the laser light directly affect the properties of the generated electron beam a pulsed semiconductor laser system has been specially developed and built for Photo-CATCH. This is characterized by a high variability of its operating parameters, in particular its wavelength and repetition rate, in order to fulfill the broad variety of requirements of various nuclear physics experiments. By selecting the wavelength of the used laser diode highly polarized or high-current electron beams can be generated from GaAs-photocathodes. The time profile of the laser has direct influence to the longitudinal profile of the electron bunch. Through the radiofrequency modulation of the pumping current of the impedance-matched semiconductor laser system, consisting of a DC power source and an electrical pulse generator with 881 ps broad pump pulses, Lorentz shaped laser pulses with a minimum FWHM of (43.8±1.2) ps at a pulse energy of (94.1±4.7) pJ could be achieved. The behavior of the laser system and the used spiking effect of the transient response has been simulated and experimentally confirmed. Thus electric pump pulses with a length of about 350 ps are capable of generating ultrashort laser pulses of a few picoseconds. The repetition rate of the laser is directly determined by the electrical pulse generator, which gives a discrete variation of 0.61 MHz to 2.9971 GHz for time-of-flight experiments and continuous electron beams at Photo-CATCH. In addition, it was possible to determine the excited state lifetime of the laser diode to (53.0±4.7) ps. To characterize the electron beam a beamline has been designed and built. The determination of the beam emittance is accessible via two wirescanners. The electromagnetic fields of a Wien filter and a solenoid are capable of rotating the electron spin throughout the entire solid angle up to an electron energy of 100 keV, while a double-Mott-polarimeter is used to determine the degree of polarization. A deflector cavity with an unloaded quality of 10577±175 and a coupling factor of 1.0038±0.0002 is used for the transfer of the longitudinal electron bunch profile in the transverse plane, thus polarization and current profiles of the electron bunches can be measured with a resolution of less than 1ps. An optical system to generate a supercontinuum enables wavelength-dependent quantum efficiency and polarization measurements of GaAs-photocathodes in a range of 480 nm to 1000 nm. In order to control and read out all of the components of Photo-CATCH and the laser system, a control system has been developed, which allows the operator a clearly arranged and intuitive control through a LabVIEW-based user interface and a gamepad.

    The impact of climate change and stratospheric chlorine loading on the stratospheric ozone layer is estimated by evaluating three multi-annual simulations of the interactively coupled global chemistry-climate model ECUAM4.L39 (DLR)/CHEM. Two experiments of the near past were carried out representing the early 1980s and 1990s, respectively. An additional scenario was conducted which is characterised by increased greenhouse gas concentrations and a slightly reduced stratospheric chlorine loading with respect to its value measured in the year 1990, according to current projections. The model is able to describe dynamic and chemical processes of the 1980s and 1990s realistically, and it is capable in reproducing the observed stratospheric temperature, water vapour, and ozone temperature trends of this time period. With increasing greenhouse gas concentrations, the model produces an enhancing stratospheric cooling for the years 1980 to 2015. Despite the reduced stratospheric chlorine loading in 2015, the decreased stratospheric temperatures will cause a continued reduction of stratospheric ozone in the southern hemisphere. In the northern hemisphere, tropospheric warming results in a changed excitation of planetary waves. Their vertical propagation and breaking in the stratosphere causes the polar vortex to become more unstable in 2015. This overcompensates the radiative stratospheric cooling so that stratospheric ozone recovers. (orig.)

    Cryotherapy has been used succesfully for about 20 years in the treatment of benign and malignant neoplasms of the skin or mucous membranes. A problematic circumstance is that cryoprobes applied while still body-warm induce formation of large ice crystals during the cooling process. To evade the adhesive forces developed by these crystals the probe must be defrosted at the end of the procedure. Cryoprobes for use in corporeal cavities must therefore be designed to specific technical requirements. This paper presents target specifications for the new development of a gynaecological cryoprobe. In this connection it explains the thermodynamic principle of function, its constructional realisation, and the technical concept employed for the design of a cryoprobe. (BWI) [Deutsch] Die Kryotherapie wird seit etwa 20 Jahren mit Erfolg zur Behandlung von gut- und boesartigen Neubildungen der Haut und der Schleimhaut eingesetzt. Bei koerperwarm aufgesetzten Kryosoden bilden sich allerdings waehrend des Abkuehlprozesses groessere Eiskristalle heraus, die Haftkraefte ausloesen, so dass die Sonde nach Therapieende abgetaut werden muss. Bei der Anwendung von Kryosonden in Koerperhoehlen ergeben sich deshalb besondere technische Forderungen. Der vorliegende Beitrag stellt die Zielstellung fuer die Neuentwicklung einer gynaekologischen Kryosonde vor. In diesem Zusammenhang wird auf das thermodynamische Funktionsprinzip sowie die konstruktive Umsetzung und das geraetetechnische Konzept eingegangen. (BWI)

    At the site of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum fuer Schwerionenforschung near Darmstadt, the international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) is under construction. The research program of FAIR includes experiments with antiproton beams. In order to provide the high intensity proton beam, that is necessary to produce the antiprotons, a new linear accelerator, acting as injector to the SIS18 synchrotron, will be constructed. This linear accelerator, called p-Linac, shall be kept as short as possible. That is why novel CH-type cavities will be used for the main acceleration from 3 MeV to 70 MeV. In order to test these novel cavities and their supporting technology, an rf test stand is under construction at GSI. Within the scope of this thesis a pulsed 325 MHz control system has been developed as part of that test stand. It is based upon the cw rf control system of the superconducting Darmstaedter Linearaccelerator (S-DALINAC), that is designed to drive normal- and superconducting cavities at 3 GHz. Aim of this thesis is, to adapt the frequency of S-DALINAC's rf control to p-Linac's 325 MHz at one hand and on the other hand, to improve the response time in order to achieve a relative amplitude error of below 10{sup -3} and a phase error below 0.1 within the 200 μs long rf pulses. The time that is needed in order to re-achieve the errors after the beam pulse hits the cavity, is also crucial. At first, the dependance of the control rate to various parameters of the cavity and the control has been tested by analytical and numerical methods. Therefore, the behavior of a cavity's amplitude in the base band has been modeled and confirmed by comparison of the model's and a measured step response of a cavity. The dependance of the I- and PI-control's parameters on the decay time of the cavity was shown by analytical methods. With the aid of numerical simulations the extent at which the response time is affected negatively by dead time and positively by feed forward has been shown. A new rf-module has been designed and tested in order to adopt to the working frequency of 325 MHz. To be able to counter integral wind-up-effects, the control gained the ability to conditionally hold an integrator. In order to reduce the response time the aliasing filters of the analog digital converter has been overhauled, the amplitude detector was replaced by an amplitude determination out of I/Q-signals and the controller was expanded by a pulsed feed forward. These measures lead to a drop in the response time by about three-quarter.

    A cvoncept for the control of teh particle and energy removal is available with the Dynamic Ergodic Divertor (DED) at the TEXTOR tokamak and is studied there. In the framework of this thesis a new diagnostic fot the study of short-time events in the plasma boundary layer was developed and constructed. It allows spatially (2 mm) and timely (10 {mu}s) highly resolved measurements of the electron density n{sub e} and electron temperaturew T{sub e}. This occurs by spectroscopy on helium atoms injected into the plasma, for whose measured line intensities respectively intensity ratios by means of a collision-radiation model n{sub e} and T{sub e} can be determined. In order to fulfil the requirements for the measurement of the plasma fluctuations up to 100 kHz, an injection system was developed, which can produce a supersonic helium beam of high particle density (1.5.10{sup 18} m{sup -3}) and simulataneously low deivergence {+-}1 . Parallely for this an observation system consisting of many-channel photomultipliers (PMT) with high and a CCD camera with lower time resolution. The signals of the different MT channels are calibrated on the intensities of the comparable spatial channels of the CCD camera. The first spectroscopic measurement of T{sub e} fluctuations resulted for the characterizing parameters: velocity v{sub r}=(380{+-}60) m/s, correlation length L{sub r}{approx}(5{+-}1) mm, and lifetime {tau}{sub L}{approx}(10{+-}1.25) {mu}s. Under the influence of resonant disturbing magnetic fields by the DED because of the not negligible photon noise no quantitative fluctuation characteristics could be determined. Furthermore during the dynamic AC operation of the DED with rotating disturbing field (974 Hz) n{sub e} and T{sub e} could be spatially and timely resolved and showed because of dynamically co-moved plasma structures a strong modulation by a factor 3 respectively 2. Beside an expected pressure decreasement in the laminar flux tube a hitherto unknown increasement in the ergodic range was observed. The comparison between rotations of the theoretical disturbing vacuum field structures to those measured in the plasma a phase difference of 54 -90 resulted. By means of both rotational directions a maximally possible differenc eof 36 -72 could be determined, which implies an asymmetric phase shift dependent on the rotational direction.

    The subject of the present work is the development of fast and highly selective methods for the separation and purification of scandium, zirconium and tin radionuclides from potential target materials for use in nuclear medicine. A number of selected resins (TrisKem International) were first characterized with respect to their extraction behaviour towards a large number of cations. Characterization studies were performed in batch experiments by determination of weight distribution ratios D{sub w} and further the influence of interferences on the uptake of these elements was evaluated. Weight distribution ratios were determined in different acids and acid concentrations with main focus on scandium, tin or zirconium. The interference of macro amounts of Calcium and Ti on the Sc extraction was evaluated as well as the interference of macro amounts of Y on the Zr extraction. Best suited uptake conditions were found for Scandium on DGA were determined to be 2.5 M HNO{sub 3} for Ti-Targets and 0.1 M HNO{sub 3} for Calcium-Targets. Otherwise it is also possible to extract Sc with TRU Resin. High uptakes were obtained at 2.5 M HNO{sub 3} for simulated Ti- and Calcium-targets. Separation methods were developed using elution studies; employed conditions were chosen according to parameters evaluated in the batch-experiment. The developed methods allowed separating Sc very rapidly in high purity very rapidly from Ti- or Calcium-targets. For Zr a separation method based on UTEVA Resin has been developed. Following results of batch experiments simulated Y-target solution were loaded onto a UTEVA resin column from 6 M HNO{sub 3}; the elution of Zr could be performed in 0.01 M oxalic acid. Decontamination factors in the order of 10{sup 4}-10{sup 5} could be obtained applying the developed method; the method thus allowed separating Zr in a high purity. Initial testing of a method for the separation of Sn from Cd targets based on the use of TBP Resin showed that the TBP resin seems to have a good potential for this use. Another part of this work is dealing with the preparation and application of an extraction chromatographic resin based on the use of multi-walled nanotubes. It could be shown that resins based on nanotubes do have some interesting properties; but it could also be shown that of such resins have some distinct disadvantages especially with respect to their practical use. Packing a column with nanotubes based materials is far more challenging then packing a column with classical resin. Achieving flow rates sufficiently high for their foreseen use turned out to be difficult to achieve.

    Full Text Available Everyday life in human society is severely influenced by geographic settings, since individual and social ac-tivities as well as interactions unfold in specific places. They define the real space of a “Lebensraum”. The geographic or structural dissection of this space can hamper the evolvement of a civil public spirit – society then appears as dissected as the space. The city of Wörth am Rhein with four geographically completely separated municipal areas serves as an example for geographically complex urban spaces with the respective social, public and administrative challenges. The author provides an in depth analysis of the problem and shows possible approaches to overcome social dissection.

    The development as well as the validation of a gas mixing system (GMS) that enables dynamic and traceable production of stable long-term VOC gas mixtures within the range between a few {mu}g/m{sup 3} and a few 100 {mu}g/m{sup 3}, is discussed. In this method pure liquid substances that are filled into stainless steel bottles are kept separately at a constant temperature, evaporated according to their vapour pressure and removed by a small inert gas flow. They are finally united in a gas mixing chamber. The carrier gas must be as small as possible so that the quasi-equilibrium between the gas space and the liquid phase in the substance bottles will not be disturbed. The carrier gas is assumed to be saturated with substance gas due to a long residence time in the bottles and a fast phase transition. Any concentration level of the gas mixture can be generated by a combination of vaporization temperature, carrier and dilution gas flows. With the GMS a mixture of 25 VOCs was prepared. For 16 compounds stable and reproducible gas concentrations were realized. Due to not completely removed leakage of some substance bottles and the tubing respectively, variation of the concentration of the remaining compounds was found. A sink effect as another reason for this variation could be expelled and the chemical stability of the vaporized substances proved with the exception of some aldehydes. The procedure was successfully applied in a round robin test and a material test. In the latter adsorption of VOCs on building products was scrutinized. In this way the applicability of the GMS could be shown. (orig.)

    Scaling in the context of REACH means: use of simple mathematics to check, whether chemi-cals are used in a safe way. Even in case if certain conditions of use deviate from the exposure scenario. In specific cases, scaling offers downstream users the opportunity to demonstrate coverage by an exposure scenario for their individual conditions of use. In this report we describe the duty of downstream users to check their conditions of use. We give a definition of scaling related to REACH. We describe objectives and results of scaling. We characterise available scaling tools in a structured way. We describe options for further development and harmonisation of scaling tools. Under use of the experience with existing tools, we develop a guidance document on scaling. Three examples in this guidance make clear how scaling works. In five steps. The guidance is addressed to persons using substances in industrial or professional applications - downstream users according to REACH. In addition, the guidance supports producers of substances and formulators who want to develop scaling tools for their customers. The report includes a calculation table for scaling related to the environment (REACH Scale Environment). In addition, it includes a template to generate product-specific scaling tools. This report focuses on scaling related to environmental exposure assessment. Scaling is possible related to workers and consumer exposure, too. References for this are given in chapter 7. (orig.)

    Extensive use is made of massive components of heat resistant and highly heat resistant materials in installations of the power and heating industry. These components are exposed to varying thermomechanical stress as a result of ramping-up and down processes. In this research project two computer-assisted methods of predicting service life until crack initiation were extended to include cases of thermomechanical multi-axis stress conducive to creep fatigue and of superposition of high-cycle stress on power plant components. Investigations were limited to rotor steel of type X12CrMoWVNbN10-1-1. Complex thermomechanical multi-axis experiments were performed on round, notched and cruciform test specimens of close-to-life dimensions in order to demonstrate by experiment the validity of these models. The results of these calculations showed an acceptable degree of agreement between experiment and simulation for both models. Calculations on earlier TMF experiments performed at IfW on hollow specimens of 1%CrMoNiV showed good predictability for both the SARA and the ThoMat programme. Calculations on experiments performed at MPA Stuttgart on model bodies consisting of the same 1%CrMoNiV showed a predictability of acceptable variability considering the complexity of the stresses involved. A further outcome of this project is that the use of SARA appears universally suitable for the construction of new plants and in the service area, while the use of ThoMat appears suited for detail optimisation in the development process.

    At an industrial sewage treatment plant, the ammonium freight in the effluent is to be further reduced in the future through nitrification. But constantly low effluent concentrations are only possible if the nitrification process is not inhibited. Bouts of critical concentrations of nitrification inhibitors in sewage received by treatment plant are potentially disturbing. Online measurement of nitrification inhibitors in sewage arriving at the treatment plant is to recognize such bouts and permit timely alert so that counter-measures can be taken, which may consist in routing sewage with such toxic concentrations into a storage basin, whereby a sharp slump in the nitrification process can be avoided. (orig.) [German] In einer Industrieklaeranlage soll kuenftig durch Nitrifikation die Ammoniumfracht im Auslauf weiter gesenkt werden. Konstant niedrige Ablaufwerte sind aber nur dann moeglich, wenn der Nitrifikationsprozess ungestoert ablaufen kann. Stoesse nitrifikationshemmender Stoffe in kritischen Konzentrationen im Zulauf zur Klaeranlage sind eine moegliche Stoergroesse. Mit Hilfe einer Online-Nitrifikationshemmmessung im Klaeranlagenzulauf sollen solche Stoesse erkannt und rechtzeitig alarmiert werden, damit Gegenmassnahmen, wie z.B. das Auffangen des toxischen Stosses durch eine Sicherheitsschaltung in einem Speicherbecken, eingeleitet und so signifikante Einbrueche des Nitrifikationsprozesses vermieden werden koennen.

    In this report the neutron- and reactor physical aspects of the high temperature pebble bed reactor are studied. For this purpose appropriate HTR-nuclear data sets are generated and applied in a calculation model, which is developed on the basis of neutron transport and diffusion theory. This model includes the complete reactor calculation for determination of neutron flux, reactivity and reaction rates. This reactor calculation is based on following: evaluation of resonance absorption in double heterogeneity, cell calculation in spherical geometry, zone spectral calculation and subsequent 2-dimensional diffusion calculation. All calculations are performed in the modular program system RSYST, which accommodates simplified treatment of reactor physics problems through its data transfer and treatment techniques and through its calculations control features.

    To realize the safety of personnel and environment systems and components of nuclear facilities are classified according to their potential danger into safety classes. Based on this classification different demands on the manufacturing quality result. The objective of this work is to present the standardized method developed by NUKEM Technologies Engineering Services for the categorization into the safety classes restricted to Non-reactor nuclear facilities (NRNF). Exemplary the methodology is used on the complex Russian normative system (four safety classes). For NRNF only the lower two safety classes are relevant. The classification into the lowest safety class 4 is accordingly if the maximum resulting dose following from clean-up actions in case of incidents/accidents remains below 20 mSv and the volume activity restrictions of set in NRB-99/2009 are met. The methodology is illustrated using an example. In short the methodology consists of: - Determination of the working time to remove consequences of incidents, - Calculation of the dose resulting from direct radiation and due to inhalation during these works. The application of this methodology avoids over-conservative approaches. As a result some previously higher classified equipment can be classified into the lower safety class.

    In a first part, the present work covers the problem of keeping the orientation to the customers in the development of complex systems. The variety of dependencies in such products affects the designer's ability of making well-balanced decisions and verifying them later. In this work, a method of evaluating component variants is elaborated wherein the whole knowledge about the product can be considered. Furthermore, the decision can be revised at every development step. This means a valuable contribution to objective decision-making and to a design with respect to costs and customer value. The method bases on the linking of the evaluation to the 'influence net', a specific mathematical description of the product and its interdependencies. The second part covers the problem of recognizing potential difficulties in market acceptance of the product during the development process. The proposed solution integrates a human cognitive structure model in the 'influence net' of the product, which offers a direct link between human judgement and technical solutions. The core of this model is the element 'basic interest', a theoretical explanation of the cause of acceptance problems. Based on this, the third part contains a proposition of a proceeding model for decision making during system design. Therein, the <> as a description of the relevant product- and market-knowledge is proposed as a basement for all decisions made in the innovation process. This contains decisions about the product idea and component variants as well as about the design steps proceeding. The theoretical approaches are applied to the system development of a new elevator technology. Instead of using one shaft, one cabin combined with rope and counterweight, several cabins shall move autonomously in the same shaft and also might switch the shafts. The goal of this new technology is the reduction of the lift area while maintaining the transport capacity. The present work contains an in-depth analysis of the elevator's environment and its customer structure for elaborating a definition of development goals that is adequate to the degree of innovation. The integration of the building's dependencies in the development is very important for evaluating the effects of the new system. In a next step, the best traffic concept is elaborated and defined as a basis for the analysis of the market potential and for the successive technical design. For illustrating the problems of the decision making in complex situations, the dependencies between cabin structure and motor technology are discussed. Finally, the theoretical approaches of the present work turn out to be enormously helpful to support system development in improving its effiency and its precision. (orig.)

    The attractiveness of electrical conversion of liquid methanol in a fuel cell is defined by its simple storage and high energy density. Therefore, direct-methanol fuel cell (DMFC) qualifies for applications in portable systems and mobile application in the kW-class. The goal of this work is to develop and demonstrate an improved and optimized peripheral DMFC system compared to the current level of technology. The selected mobile application is the retrofit of the energy supply of a ''Scooter'' with a fuel cell system. The required size reduction and the simplification of the DMFC system are realized by an integrated concept, which combines ideally the peripheral system and the fuel cell. A profound analysis of the stack and the peripheral components is a prerequisite for an optimized design. A detailed modelling and understanding of the stack behaviour establish the starting point of this work. The influence of the most important operating parameters like stack temperature, cell voltage, current density, air ratio and methanol concentration is captured accurately by the developed model and validated by experimental data. This shapes the frame work of the following system design approach. For this the clearly defined task of the peripheral system are investigated individually for alternatives and the best option is selected for the final solution. For selecting the right pumps and blowers available products and prototypes are characterized and checked for the system requirements. The investigation and the modelling of the exhaust gas condenser lead to an optimized component design for the ''Scooter'' DMFC design. Additionally, the integration of the anode loop is accomplished consisting of the supply lines, the circulating pump, the gas separator and the exhaust line. The direct coupling of the fuel cell with a lithium-ion battery as an option for electrical conditioning is investigated. In the system modelling the influence of the operational parameter on characteristic performance indicators like electrical power, efficiency, and power density is analysed in combination with the heat and water management of the system. The system can be optimized only for single specific targets. For example the best system efficiency has been evaluated for a cell voltage of 400 mV and a stack temperature of 70 C. In the final part the development of the power supply of a Scooter is described. A compact system with a net power output of 1230 W has been realized. The system efficiency amounts up to 18.8 %.

    Conventionally the data preparation of the neutron cross sections for reactor-core calculations pursues with 2D cell codes. Aim of this thesis was, to develop a 3D cell code, to study with this code 3D effects, and to evaluate the necessarity of a 3D data preparation of the neutron cross sections. For the calculation of the neutron transport the method of the first-collision probabilities, which are calculated with the ray-tracing method, was chosen. The mathematical algorithms were implemented in the 2D/3D cell code TransRay. For the geometry part of the program the geometry module of a Monte Carlo code was used.The ray tracing in 3D was parallelized because of the high computational time. The program TransRay was verified on 2D test problems. For a reference pressured-water reactor following 3D problems were studied: A partly immersed control rod and void (vacuum or steam) around a fuel rod as model of a steam void. All problems were for comparison calculated also with the programs HELIOS(2D) and MCNP(3D). The dependence of the multiplication factor and the averaged two-group cross section on the immersion depth of the control rod respectively of the height of the steam void were studied. The 3D-calculated two-group cross sections were compared with three conventional approximations: Linear interpolation, interpolation with flux weighting, and homogenization, At the 3D problem of the control rod it was shown that the interpolation with flux weighting is a good approximation. Therefore here a 3D data preparation is not necessary. At the test case of the single control rod, which is surrounded by the void, the three approximation for the two-group cross sections were proved as unsufficient. Therefore a 3D data preparation is necessary. The single fuel-rod cell with void can be considered as the limiting case of a reactor, in which a phase interface has been formed. [German] Standardmaessig erfolgt die Datenaufbereitung der Neutronenwirkungsquerschnitte fuer Reaktorkernrechnungen mit 2D-Zellcodes. Ziel dieser Arbeit war es, einen 3D-Zellcode zu entwickeln, mit diesem Code 3D-Effekte zu untersuchen und die Notwendigkeit einer 3D-Datenaufbereitung der Neutronenwirkungsquerschnitte zu bewerten. Zur Berechnung des Neutronentransports wurde die Methode der Erststosswahrscheinlichkeiten, die mit der Ray-Tracing-Methode berechnet werden, gewaehlt. Die mathematischen Algorithmen wurden in den 2D/3D-Zellcode TransRay umgesetzt. Fuer den Geometrieteil des Programms wurde das Geometriemodul eines Monte-Carlo-Codes genutzt. Das Ray-Tracing in 3D wurde auf Grund der hohen Rechenzeiten parallelisiert. Das Programm TransRay wurde an 2D-Testaufgaben verifiziert. Fuer einen Druckwasser-Referenzreaktor wurden folgende 3D-Probleme untersucht: Ein teilweise eingetauchter Regelstab und Void (Vakuum oder Dampf) um einen Brennstab als Modell einer Dampfblase. Alle Probleme wurden zum Vergleich auch mit den Programmen HELIOS (2D) und MCNP (3D) nachgerechnet. Die Abhaengigkeit des Multiplikationsfaktors und der gemittelten Zweigruppenquerschnitte von der Eintauchtiefe des Regelstabes bzw. von der Hoehe der Dampfblase wurden untersucht. Die 3D berechneten Zweigruppenquerschnitte wurden mit drei ueblichen Naeherungen verglichen: Lineare Interpolation, Interpolation mit Flusswichtung und Homogenisierung. Am 3D-Problem des Regelstabes zeigte sich, dass die Interpolation mit Flusswichtung eine gute Naeherung ist. Demnach ist hier eine 3D-Datenaufbereitung nicht notwendig. Beim Testfall des einzelnen Brennstabs, der von Void umgeben ist, erwiesen sich die drei Naeherungen fuer die Zweigruppenquerschnitte als unzureichend. Demnach ist eine 3D-Datenaufbereitung notwendig. Die einzelne Brennstabzelle mit Void kann als der Grenzfall eines Reaktors angesehen werden, in dem sich eine Phasengrenzflaeche herausgebildet hat.

    The study analyzes models of action of social psychology - in particular also an approach to institutionalize routine behaviour patterns - in order to identify the influencing factors that are described and the strategies for energy saving which are promoted. It also presents a comprehensive outline of current intervention studies and identifies effective strategy combinations which may serve as a basis for effective energy conservation campaigns. Against this background, an intervention measure for a neighbourhood context is developed and evaluated which is to promote energy-saving patterns of energy use in private households. The long-term effects suggest that it is a promising strategy to use a combination of information, commitment, goal identification, and individual and comparative feedback and to make use of group processes in a social context for developing energy-saving (routine) behaviour patterns.

    In the following contribution we will stress the importance of including the driver in the development of new Infotainment- and Driver-Assistance Systems. The necessity to do so derives from ever increasing complexity of above systems as well as from growing cost pressure in the automotive industry. Furthermore, we will point out several possibilities including the driver in the development of above systems and illustrate them by practical examples. Finally, we will present methods with the help of which potential users can test future technology at an early design stage, where the engineer still disposes of a wide scope of design possibilities. (orig.) [German] Im folgenden Beitrag soll die Wichtigkeit der Einbeziehung des Fahrers in den Entwicklungsprozess neuer Infotainment- und Fahrerassistenzsysteme dargelegt und begruendet werden. Die Notwendigkeit hierzu leitet sich sowohl aus der zunehmenden Komplexitaet der Systeme sowie dem gewachsenen Kostendruck in der Automobilindustrie ab. Weiter werden unterschiedliche Moeglichkeiten der Integration des Fahrers in den Entwicklungsprozess vorgestellt und durch Fallbeispiele aus der Praxis verdeutlicht. Im letzten Teil werden Verfahren aufgezeigt, mit deren Hilfe zukuenftige Technik von potenziellen Nutzern zu einem Zeitpunkt getestet werden kann, zu dem der Entwickler noch weiten Gestaltungsspielraum besitzt.

    A new approach for the development of advanced driver assistance systems is presented. The keynote of this new approach is to use the driver model of the traffic simulation tool PELOPS as a control algorithm and to apply it to a vehicle. The fact, that the human driving behaviour is the starting point of the development, is the main advantage of this new approach. Thus important aspects for the development of driver assistance systems like a situation-adaptive and reliable control, understandable behaviour and the consideration of driver-individual parameters are integrated in the controller design from the beginning. An application example of the new approach is shown. (orig.)

    Mine water treatment is costly, difficult, and requires extensive surface installations. The author explains the development of geochemical ('active') barriers of low-cost materials. The materials investigated were industrial residues (red sludge, fly ash, tinder residues, porous concrete residues), natural materials (bark, zeolite, bentonite, hydroxyl apatite), and commercial products (GEH, Ratio Pur MF-S). Investigations focused on density, specific surface, grain size, and acid neutralization capacity. In the final stage, experiments were made on heavy metal removal from a model water. [German] Einen grossen Anteil an der Schwermetallbelastung in Fluessen haben toxische Abwaesser aus Bergbaugebieten (Grubenwaesser). Die Moeglichkeit der Behandlung sind sehr aufwendig, kostenintensiv und nur 'ueber Tage' durchfuehrbar. Die vorliegende Arbeit erlaeutert die Behandlung von Grubenwaessern mit geochemischen ('aktiven') Barrieren. Es werden aktive Barrieren entwickelt, die in einen Schacht eingebracht werden koennen, um eine Schwermetallausbreitung zu unterbinden. In diesem Zusammenhang werden kostenguenstige Materialien untersucht, die Schadstoffe durch chemische und/oder physikalische Mechanismen aus Wasser entfernen koennen. Untersucht wurden industrielle Reststoffe (Rotschlamm, Flugasche, Zunderrueckstaende, Porenbetonabfall), natuerliche Materialien (Baumrinde, Zeolith, Bentonit, Hydroxylapatit) und kommerzielle Produkte (GEH, Ratio Pur MF-S). Die Materialien werden hinsichtlich der Dichte, der spezifischen Oberflaeche, der Korngroesse und der Saeureneutralisationskapazitaet charakterisiert. Anschliessend wurden Versuche zur Schwermetallentfernung aus einem Modellwasser durchgefuehrt. (orig.)

    Controllable horizontal drilling is a method established worldwide for laying pipelines under natural or artificial obstacles without trenches. In 2002 an 18'' gas pipeline was laid under the river Rhone under the most difficult topographical and geological conditions for the French energy supplier Gaz de France by means of horizontal drilling technology. In this thesis the Easy pipe procedure has been developed derived from MT (Mircrotunneling) engineering. The procedure is stepwise as a pilot process introduced and furtheron developed and installed for pipeline laying. (orig./GL)

    Against the background of the directive on energy end-use efficiency and energy services (2006/32/EC, ESD) the Federal Government of Germany presented a national energy efficiency action plan (NEEAP) in September 2007. From the German Federal perspective there is a need for the development of a nationwide ESD monitoring system, providing an coherent procedure to verify the energy savings achieved. For this purpose, the quality of the procedure must be ensured by suitable regulations and measures. Based on the project EMEEES (Evaluation and Monitoring for the EU Directive on Energy End-Use Efficiency and Energy Services), the report develops methods especially for bottom up methods to prove which energy savings can be achieved under the implementation of the German NEEAP. The main focus of the report is the development of suitable bottom-up methods by which can calculate the total savings as well as additional savings can be calculated. Furthermore, the equations provided in this report also allows the calculation of so called early energy savings achieved prior to 2008. (orig.)

    In co-operation with partners out of industry and research a machine program was developed predicting the output of wind power plants. Three attributes should be realised by this prediction tool: Short computing time, usable for various grid regions, high reliability. Therewith the transmission system operators get a tool for reducing the amount of control energy which is needed to ensure the balance between power generation and consumption in their networks. This prediction tool for up to two days was developed exemplary for the northern grid area of the transmission system operator 'E.ON Netz GmbH' (ENE). The wind power prediction is based on numerical weather forecast from the German weather service (Deutscher Wetterdienst). The weather forecast is given for 16 representative sites within the ENE-area. The meso-scale model KLIMM (Klima Model Mainz) was used to calculate the meteorological variables near to the wind farms, which are connected to the one transformer substation belonging to one representative place. Therefor KLIMM is fed with the weather forecast given for one limited location in the representative sites. The transformation of the meteorological variables to the output of wind power plants at the representative site is done by Neural Networks. These Neural Networks have been trained with corresponding measurements. Using an existing online-model the total wind power for the whole ENE-area will be calculated from the individual wind power of the representative sites. The Evaluation of the prediction- and measured data from 2001 shows comparing with reference-models, that the prediction-model evolved in the project lead to very good results. (orig.)

    During the production of offshore gas fields, raw gas from a number of production wells is usually led to a platform or - for reservoirs located close to shore - even transported as wet gas to an onshore gas treatment plant. The pipelines are located at the sea bottom, resulting in significant cooling of the raw gas with subsequent potential for the formation of hydrates and/or precipitation of paraffin on the pipeline walls. In order to safeguard continuous production, additional installations and/or dosage of chemicals would possibly be required. On the basis of gas and condensate samples from production tests, the formation potential for paraffins was experimentally investigated while the hydrate formation potential was assessed by simulations. The very small volume of condensate available (2-3 ml of each sample) formed a special challenge and limited the number of possible analytical investigations. Nevertheless, wax appearance temperature of five condensates under investigation could successfully be determined by a combination of gas-chromatographic and rheological measurements. Two of the three gas-bearing layers turned out to produce dry gas so that paraffin problems can be excluded. However, according to the simulations, hydrate formation at temperatures {<=}+20 C has to be expected under the formation pressure of about 200 bars. The third layer contains a gas condensate, causing paraffin precipitation at {<=}0 C and forming hydrate in a temperature range similar to that of the other two sands. Hence, precautions have to taken to prevent hydrate formation in all field lines containing wet gas. Furthermore, the paraffin precipitation potential has to be taken into account in the subsequent low-temperature gas-treatment plant. (orig.)

    The pathogenesis of allergies can be stimulated by adjuvant effects, i.e. air pollutants such as NO{sub x} and particles from diesel engines and also noise - the latter especially during the night. During sleep, noise signals that are associated with danger (e.g. noise from lorries) can potentially trigger stress reactions even if the noise level is low. Higher cortisol levels in the first half of the night seem to have an important role in this. In a blind interview study, the combined effects of chronic exposure to traffic-related air pollution and noise upon the risk of allergic skin and respiratory diseases in children were studied. All children between 5 and 12 years of age who had consulted one of two of the participating pediatricians were included in the study. The paediatricians' diagnoses for 400 children were analysed together with their parents' answers to questions on the density of road traffic in the streets where they live and several confounding factors. Multiple regression analyses revealed relative risks of asthma, chronic bronchitis and neurodermitis that rose significantly with increasingly heavy traffic. A comparison with corresponding results reported in the literature for air pollution alone showed that traffic noise during the night might have an enhancing (adjuvant) effect in the pathogenesis of these diseases. (orig.) [German] Die Entstehung von Allergien kann durch adjuvante Effekte - z.B. Immissionen aus dem Verkehrsbereich - gefoerdert werden. Zu solchen Immissionen zaehlen gas- und partikelfoermige Schadstoffe wie Stickoxide und Dieselruss sowie Laerm, insbesondere in der Nacht. Waehrend des Schlafs koennen Geraeusche, die mit Gefahren assoziiert sind (z.B. Lkw-Geraeusche) auch bei niedrigen Pegeln Stressreaktionen ausloesen. Kortisolerhoehungen in der ersten Haelfte der Nacht scheinen dabei eine wichtige Rolle zu spielen. In einer 'einfach-blind' durchgefuehrten Befragungsstudie wurden langzeitige Auswirkungen einer Kombinationsbelastung aus verkehrsbedingten Luftverschmutzungen und Laerm auf das Risiko fuer allergische Haut- und Atemwegserkrankungen bei Kindern untersucht. Die aerztlichen Diagnosen von 400 Kindern im Alter von 5-12 Jahren, die innerhalb eines Monats einen der beiden teilnehmenden Kinderaerzte aufsuchten, wurden zusammen mit Angaben der Eltern ueber die Verkehrsbelastung ihrer Wohnungen und ueber andere moegliche Einflussfaktoren ausgewertet. Multiple Regressionsanalysen ergaben fuer Asthma, chronische Bronchitis und Neurodermitis relative Risiken, die mit der Belastung signifikant anstiegen. Ein Vergleich mit der Literatur ueber entsprechende Wirkungen von Luftverschmutzung ergab, dass naechtlicher Verkehrslaerm wahrscheinlich eine verstaerkende (adjuvante) Wirkung bei der Entstehung der genannten Krankheiten hat.

    The present book is a strongly revised and supplemented edition of the title: ''Kristalle: Spiefeld der Elektronen'', published scarcely ten years ago by the same author. Especially the physical contents are explained by the mathematically formulated foundations. The book appeals to students of natural sciences and especially of physics as well as to engineers as introduction to the wide field of solid-state physics, so to speak as motivating prestage to the established and very extensive textbooks. Beside the physical contents the book treats the important role of numerous important and often still very young scientists. By corresponding supplements in this book it is tried to present the fundamental developments in their wide environment.

    Within the project presented an axially staged annular combustor has been investigated. Staged combustion significantly reduces emissions of nitrogen oxide without sacrifying combustion efficiency and stability during low power conditions. The cold flow in the combustion module was analysed in water analogy tests. Stability of the main fuel injectors was investigated in a low pressure sector rig, high pressure tests were focused on nitric oxides and smoke emissions and on the detection of the temperature pattern at the combustor exit. Based on these results a second configuration was derived. Improved mixing of the pilot stage exhaust gases into the primary zone of the main stage was achieved. This configuration revealed a considerable reduction of nitric oxide emissions as well as a more even exit temperature pattern. The aerothermal design and optimisation of the staged combustor and the interpretation of the experimental results were supported by means of CFD calculations. The accuracy of the prediction of pollutant emissions could be enhanced by the incorporation of an advanced laminar-flamelet combustion model. Fuel/air mixing as well as the combustion process were investigated in a planar model of the staged combustor at LFA, University of Munich, by means of laser-spectroscopic methods. Under atmospheric conditions 2D concentrations of OH, O{sub 2}, and NO were measured. Characteristic differences of the combustion process for the staged and unstaged mode, respectively, were detected. The general applicability of planar temperature measurement by means of `2 lines thermometry` could be demonstrated. (orig.) [Deutsch] Im Rahmen des hier vorgestellten Vorhabens wurde eine axial gestufte Ringbrennkammer untersucht, die eine deutliche Senkung der Stickoxidemissionen bewirkt, ohne den Ausbrand und die Stabilitaet im unteren Lastbereich zu verschlechtern. In Wasseranalogieversuchen wurde die kalte Stroemung analysiert und optimiert. Die Stabilitaet der Hauptbrenner wurde in Niederdruckversuchen untersucht, waehrend sich Hochdruckversuche den Emissionen von NO{sub x} und Russ sowie nach dem Temperaturprofil am Brennkammeraustritt widmeten. Darauf aufbauend wurde eine zweite Konfiguration mit intensivierter Mischung entwickelt. Mit dieser Brennkammer konnte eine deutliche Absenkung der Stickoxidemissionen und eine Verbresserung des Temperaturprofiles am Turbineneintritt gegenueber der Ausgangsbasis erreicht werden. Die aerothermische Auslegung und Optimierung der Brennkammer sowie die Interpretation der Messergebnisse wurde durch begleitende CFD-Rechnungen unterstuetzt. Zur Verbesserung der Genauigkeit bei der Berechnung der Schadstoffkomponenten wurde das im vorliegenden CFD Verfahren implementierte Verbrennungsmodell um ein Laminar-Flamelet-Modell erweitert. In einem begleitenden Vorhaben wurden am LFA die Gemischbildung sowie die Verbrennung in einem ebenen Modell der gestuften Brennkammer mit laserspektroskopischen Verfahren untersucht. Unter atmosphaerischen Bedingungen wurden zweidimensionale Konzentrationsverteilungen von OH, O{sub 2} und NO ermittelt. Dabei konnten charakteristische Unterschiede der Verbrennung fuer den ungestuften und den gestuften Fall verdeutlicht werden. Darueber hinaus wurde die Anwendbarkeit der flaechigen Temperaturmessung nach der Zwei-Linien-Thermometrie nachgewiesen. (orig.)

    In this report, results and data from examinations concerning software-based I and C components are evaluated. As failure modes of software-based components and failure causes differ fundamentally from non-software-based components, an evaluation of the operating experience of such components was carried out. This evaluation should show whether or not existing approaches for non-software-based components can be directly transferred to software-based components, or if a different approach has to be developed. The state of the art and science was gathered and is described for the national as well as the international situation. To include failures in non-safety systems, events not fulfilling the incident reporting criteria of German authorities were also included in this evaluation. The data provided by licensees of six German NPPs (different Boiling Water Reactors and Pressurized Water Reactors) was recorded for at least 8 years. The software-based components used in the NPPs are identified and their operating experience is analyzed in order to identify relevant failure modes and to establish a knowledge base for future failure rating.

    This report prepared by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) reviews research, development and demonstration projects in the energy area that were partly or wholly supported by the Swiss Federation in the years 2000/2001. A list of over 1,000 projects is presented, whereby many projects supported by the Swiss Cantons and local authorities are not included in the statistics. The report also contains figures on the efforts made by the private economy in these areas. The classification of the projects in the four main areas 'efficient use of energy', 'renewable energy sources', 'nuclear energy' and 'energy economics' is presented. This allows comparison with other publications such as the Federal Energy-Research Concept or the Overviews of the Energy-Research Programme Managers. The classification system is also compared with that used by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The Network for Information and Technology Transfer (ENET) is also presented, which has a comprehensive data base at its disposal and which maintains a systematic collection of energy-relevant publications. Details on these projects can be obtained from the appropriate heads of programmes and SFOE departmental heads, whose addresses are given in the report.

    A new Lagrangian Particle Model and a meteorological suite to operate the model were developed during phase 1 of the project. The model-system was applied for a long term calculation. The new Kinematic Simulation Particle Dispersion Model (KSP) uses Kinematic Simulation and Monte-Carlo (KS-MC) theory to calculate sub-grid flowfields. It calculates snapshots of concentrations rater then ensemble mean values. It can also directly provide higher moments of concentrations, C{sup (n)}(t) and is applicable for odour problems as well. The model is applicable in a wide spatial (<10-10{sup 3} km) and temporal scale (sec. to years). The meteorological model TRAMPER includes a date archive 3d Objective Analysis with statistical O/I method and a 1-d boundary-layer model as well as prognostic non-hydrostatic model (GESIMA). The analysis provides a three dimensional and time dependent description of relevant meteorological scalar and vector quantities also trajectories in a approx. 30 km grid resolution. Higher resolution is gained by GESIMA (example). As an alternative driver the CALMET Meteorological Model is presented. The evaluation of the KSP will take place in phase 2. Only preliminary results are shown in the report. (orig.) [German] In Phase 1 des Vorhabens wurde ein neues Lagrange - Partikel - Modell (LPM) mit einer meteorologischen Simulationsumgebung (Treiber) entwickelt und fuer eine immissionsklimatologische Berechnung eingesetzt.

Es berechnet Momentanwerte und nicht Ensemblemittelwerte sowie Varianzen und hoehere zeitliche Momente der Konzentration C{sup (n)}(t) und ist fuer die Geruchsausbreitungsrechnung geeignet. Das Verfahren erfasst einen weiten raeumlichen (<10-10{sup 3} km) und zeitlichen Skalenbereich (Sek. bis Jahre). Das meteorologische Modellsystem TRAMPER als Treiber umfasst Datenarchiv, dreidimensionale Objektive Analyse mit statischer Interpolation, 1-d-Grenzschichtmodell und nichthydrostatisches Modell (GESIMA). Erzeugt werden u.a. 3-d-Stroemung, Mischungsschichthoehe und mikrophysikalische Variablen in einem Gitter mit ca. 30 km Aufloesung.

    This paper aims to explore key risks and extraneous factors influencing raw material availability and related consequences for the realization of future automotive power trains. Important raw materials for the electro mobility are presented followed by an evaluation of their future supply risk. A review of the current situation and a summary of expectations for future technological developments are presented. The current situation of political factors, access to resources and other important factors are then discussed, highlighting some of the major risks and their influence on up-take rates of alternative power train technologies. Specifically the specific relationships between demand and supply side for specific rare earth elements and their effects on price development is investigated and suggests how these factors might influence existing relationships within the automotive industry. The paper concludes with suggestions for alternative strategies for specific groups within the automotive value chain to mitigate those risks. (orig.)

    District cooling systems with combined heat, cold and power generation may be an alternative for the refrigeration supply with medium-sized decentralized compression refrigerating machines or for the wide-spread application of split devices. The implementation of discontinuously available renewable energy sources can be much better transposed by means of such systems.

    A diagnostic method, the laser-induced thermal desorption spectroscopy (LDS), is developed to measure in situ the hydrogen inventory in the surface of plasma-facing components in fusion experiments. Its capabilities will be demonstrated in TEXTOR. In LDS, during the plasma discharge a laser beam is used to heat a spot on a surface close to the plasma to a temperature of 1400 to 2100 K to a depth of 100 {mu}m. Trapped hydrogen will be released into the plasma where it emits line radiation. The emitted H{sub a}-light is quantitatively measured. The amount of released hydrogen is calculated from the intensity of this emission using conversion factors (S/XB){sub eff}. The laser light (Nd:YAG, 1064 nm) is conducted via light fibres. At TEXTOR, a 5 mm{sup 2} sized homogeneous laser spot is created with a pulse duration of 1.5 ms, and an Energy of 5 J, typically. Below the laser spot a volume of at most 1 mm{sup 3} is desorbed. The generated temperature is calculated numerically and indirectly deduced from surface changings. Depending on the conditions during the layer formation the hydrogen content of the hydrocarbon layer will vary and different fractions of the released molecules (H{sub 2}, CH{sub 4}, C{sub 2}H{sub 4}) are created during the laser heating. The release of atomic hydrogen by laser desorption was not found. The emitted light is measured by means of narrow-band interference filters and a CCD-camera. The fraction of the light emission which lies outside the observation volume is estimated using simulations of the emission by the neutral gas transport Monte Carlo code EIRENE for each molecular fraction. Conversion factors (S/XB){sub eff} were measured in various reference plasmas (T{sub e}=22-30 eV, n{sub e}=1-11 x 10{sup 18} m{sup -3} and T{sub e}=50-74 eV, n{sub e}=1-5 x 10{sup 18} m{sup -3}) by desorbing prepared graphite samples which release a known amount of hydrogen with a known molecular distribution. LDS measurements were carried out in TEXTOR at hydrocarbon layers deposited on a graphite test limiter. The desorbed layers had been deposited within up to 3 minutes of plasma exposure, which is 40% of an ITER plasma discharge. The measured hydrogen inventories could be validated in post-mortem analyses. The deduced dynamic hydrogen inventory during the plasma discharge is 1-8 x 10{sup 20} atoms/m{sup 2}, depending on the plasma conditions (H{sup +} flux density, plasma temperature). This is in line with a mean retention time of 1.9 to 3.6 ms. It was shown that LDS allows a sensitive measurement (detection limit below 10{sup 20} m{sup -2}) of hydrogen inventories in the surface of plasma-facing components during a plasma discharge.

    The evolution of the micro-structure during creep of an AlSi12CuMgNi piston alloy with 15 vol% of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} short fibres is investigated by means of synchrotron micro-tomography. The results reveal a 3D morphology of the rigid phases in the composite: the eutectic-Si, the short fibres and the Fe- and Ni-rich intermetallic particles, which form an interconnected hybrid reinforcement. The connectivity of these phases increases during creep exposure at 300 C due to the diffusion induced ripening of Si and of the intermetallic particles. The hybrid reinforcement reaches almost complete percolation after 6400 h of creep exposure. The fibre orientation analysed by three-dimensional Fast Fourier Transformation does not indicate any reorientation of the fibres along the load direction. The formerly observed strengthening effect during creep exposure is attributed to the increasing load carrying capacity of the interconnected hybrid reinforcement. The analysis of creep damage during secondary creep stage shows the increase of the void volume fraction by a factor of 2 with respect to the void content from processing, while the number of voids per volume remains practically constant. The voids are located at interfaces of the rigid phases and not within the {alpha}-aluminium matrix. (Abstract Copyright [2007], Wiley Periodicals, Inc.) [German] Das drei-dimensionale Gefuege einer AlSi12CuMgNi-Kolbenlegierung verstaerkt mit 15 vol% Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Kurzfasern wird mittels Synchrotron Mikro-Tomographie dargestellt. Der loesungsgegluehte Ausgangszustand enthaelt ein zusammenhaengendes Netzwerk aus Kurzfasern und Fe- und Ni-reichen Primaerausscheidungen, das darueber hinaus durch eine Vielzahl von Si-Bruecken des Eutektikums verbunden wird. Die Konnektivitaet nimmt mit der Dauer der Kriechbelastung bei 300 C zu, besonders durch die Reifung der Si-Teilchen, die zu einer in sich zusammenhaengenden Struktur zusammenwachsen, die mit dem bereits vorhandenen Netzwerk mit den Fasern verbunden ist. Nach 6400 h Belastungsdauer ist die Konnektivitaet der steifen Phasen nahezu vollstaendig. Die Orientierung der Fasern wird mit drei-dimensionalen Fast Fourier Transformationen analysiert, was auf keine Umorientierung der Fasern in die Lastrichtung schliessen laesst. Die frueher beobachtete Verfestigung des Materials waehrend der Kriechbelastung wird mit der zunehmenden Steifigkeit der hybriden Verstaerkungsstruktur erklaert. Die Proben enthalten im Ausgangszustand bereits Poren an den Grenzflaechen der Verstaerkungsphasen. Die Porenanzahl aendert sich waehrend der Kriechbelastung im sekundaeren Kriechstadium nicht, jedoch wachsen die Poren, sodass der Porenvolumenanteil verdoppelt wird. In der {alpha}-Aluminiummatrix wurden keine Kriechporen gefunden. (Abstract Copyright [2007], Wiley Periodicals, Inc.)

    As the operation of a Li-ion energy storage system in automotive applications has to be efficient, safe and reliable, the thermal management of the battery cells becomes one of the main factors influencing the success of electrified powertrains. Therefore, one of the most important system variables is the cell internal temperature, as it influences efficiency, aging and power capability of the energy storage in a major way. The challenges and potentials of thermal management for Li-ion cells are illustrated in this article. It consists on one hand of the exact thermal and electric cell state determination. On the other hand it includes the control of battery temperature during operation by active cooling and heating and its operation strategy. Therefore the active cooling system can be implemented as air-, liquid or refrigerant fluid coolant cycles. An essential tools of thermal battery-management is the modeling of cell behavior. This article gives a survey on the simulation landscape of thermal-electric co-simulation of Li-ion cells mentioned in literature. Thermal cell models spread from lumped 0D-modes to complex 3D finite element models comprising different detailing degree and computation effort. Electric battery models range from simple cell models of an ideal voltage source up to complex microscopic spatialized electrochemical models. Focus is also set on the parameterization of the different cell models. The article mentions the established approaches to achieve electrical and thermal characteristics. Subsequently, two different variations of thermal-electric simulation models comprising different simulation aims are introduced. (orig.)
