    2017-03-13

    In this work we have developed a restructuring software tool (RT-CUDA) following the proposed optimization specifications to bridge the gap between high-level languages and the machine dependent CUDA environment. RT-CUDA takes a C program and convert it into an optimized CUDA kernel with user directives in a configuration file for guiding the compiler. RTCUDA also allows transparent invocation of the most optimized external math libraries like cuSparse and cuBLAS enabling efficient design of linear algebra solvers. We expect RT-CUDA to be needed by many KSA industries dealing with science and engineering simulation on massively parallel computers like NVIDIA GPUs.

    2008-01-01

    In this paper we present a general software platform that enables real time surgery simulation on the newly available compute unified device architecture (CUDA)from NVIDIA. CUDA-enabled GPUs harness the power of 128 processors which allow data parallel computations. Compared to the previous GPGPU, it is significantly more flexible with a C language interface. We report implementation of both collision detection and consequent deformation computation algorithms. Our test results indicate that the CUDA enables a twenty times speedup for collision detection and about fifteen times speedup for deformation computation on an Intel Core 2 Quad 2.66 GHz machine with GeForce 8800 GTX.

    Full Text Available This paper presents a novel method for parallelizing the seeded region growing (SRG algorithm using Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA technology, with intention to overcome the theoretical weakness of SRG algorithm of its computation time being directly proportional to the size of a segmented region. The segmentation performance of the proposed CUDA-based SRG is compared with SRG implementations on single-core CPUs, quad-core CPUs, and shader language programming, using synthetic datasets and 20 body CT scans. Based on the experimental results, the CUDA-based SRG outperforms the other three implementations, advocating that it can substantially assist the segmentation during massive CT screening tests.

    2014-10-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, we investigate the implementation of image filtering in frequency domain using NVIDIA?s CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture. In contrast to signal and image filtering in spatial domain which uses convolution operations and hence is more compute-intensive for filters having larger spatial extent, the frequency domain filtering uses FFT (Fast Fourier Transform which is much faster and significantly reduces the computational complexity of the filtering. We implement the frequency domain filtering on CPU and GPU respectively and analyze the speed-up obtained from the CUDA?s parallel processing paradigm. In order to demonstrate the efficiency of frequency domain filtering on CUDA, we implement three frequency domain filters, i.e., Butterworth, low-pass and Gaussian for processing different sizes of images on CPU and GPU respectively and perform the GPU vs. CPU benchmarks. The results presented in this paper show that the frequency domain filtering with CUDA achieves significant speed-up over the CPU processing in frequency domain with the same level of (output image quality on both the processing architectures

    © 2014 Taylor & Francis. Writing optimised compute unified device architecture (CUDA) program for graphic processing units (GPUs) is complex even for experts. We present a design methodology for a restructuring tool that converts C-loops into optimised CUDA kernels based on a three-step algorithm which are loop tiling, coalesced memory access and resource optimisation. A method for finding possible loop tiling solutions with coalesced memory access is developed and a simplified algorithm for restructuring C-loops into an efficient CUDA kernel is presented. In the evaluation, we implement matrix multiply (MM), matrix transpose (M-transpose), matrix scaling (M-scaling) and matrix vector multiply (MV) using the proposed algorithm. We present the analysis of the execution time and GPU throughput for the above applications, which favourably compare to other proposals. Evaluation is carried out while scaling the problem size and running under a variety of kernel configurations. The obtained speedup is about 28-35% for M-transpose compared to NVIDIA Software Development Kit, 33% speedup for MV compared to general purpose computation on graphics processing unit compiler, and more than 80% speedup for MM and M-scaling compared to CUDA-lite.

    Graphic processing Units (GPUs) are gaining ground in high-performance computing. CUDA (an extension to C) is most widely used parallel programming framework for general purpose GPU computations. However, the task of writing optimized CUDA program is complex even for experts. We present a method for restructuring loops into an optimized CUDA kernels based on a 3-step algorithm which are loop tiling, coalesced memory access, and resource optimization. We also establish the relationships between the influencing parameters and propose a method for finding possible tiling solutions with coalesced memory access that best meets the identified constraints. We also present a simplified algorithm for restructuring loops and rewrite them as an efficient CUDA Kernel. The execution model of synthesized kernel consists of uniformly distributing the kernel threads to keep all cores busy while transferring a tailored data locality which is accessed using coalesced pattern to amortize the long latency of the secondary memory. In the evaluation, we implement some simple applications using the proposed restructuring strategy and evaluate the performance in terms of execution time and GPU throughput. © 2012 IEEE.

    La progettazione dei sistemi fognari e dei manufatti in essi presenti richiede un’attenta conoscenza delle leggi che regolano i fenomeni idraulici, con particolare riferimento alle correnti idriche a superficie libera. Partendo dalle nozioni fondamentali dell’Idraulica, il testo intende colmare alcune importanti lacune che ancora caratterizzano la letteratura italiana nel settore e che spesso sono alla base di errori progettuali, con ovvie conseguenze sulla sicurezza dei centri abitati (come testimoniato dai frequenti fenomeni di allagamento che sono stati registrati negli ultimi anni). Il libro è rivolto agli allievi dei corsi di studio nel settore dell’ingegneria Civile ed Ambientale. Particolare interesse è rivolto ai professionisti operanti nel settore della ingegneria idraulica e della pianificazione urbana, per i quali è forte l’esigenza di testi che contengano indicazioni di carattere sia teorico sia pratico, finalizzate alla progettazione di sistemi di drenaggio nei centri abitati.

    The numerical integration of stochastic trajectories to estimate the time to pass a threshold is an interesting physical quantity, for instance in Josephson junctions and atomic force microscopy, where the full trajectory is not accessible. We propose an algorithm suitable for efficient implementation on graphical processing unit in CUDA environment. The proposed approach for well balanced loads achieves almost perfect scaling with the number of available threads and processors, and allows an acceleration of about 400× with a GPU GTX980 respect to standard multicore CPU. This method allows with off the shell GPU to challenge problems that are otherwise prohibitive, as thermal activation in slowly tilted potentials. In particular, we demonstrate that it is possible to simulate the switching currents distributions of Josephson junctions in the timescale of actual experiments.

    Full Text Available Image processing, computer vision or other complicated opticalinformation processing algorithms require large resources. It isoften desired to execute algorithms in real time. It is hard tofulfill such requirements with single CPU processor. NVidiaproposed CUDA technology enables programmer to use theGPU resources in the computer. Current research was madewith Intel Pentium Dual-Core T4500 2.3 GHz processor with4 GB RAM DDR3 (CPU I, NVidia GeForce GT320M CUDAcompliable graphics card (GPU I and Intel Core I5-2500K3.3 GHz processor with 4 GB RAM DDR3 (CPU II, NVidiaGeForce GTX 560 CUDA compatible graphic card (GPU II.Additional libraries as OpenCV 2.1 and OpenCV 2.4.0 CUDAcompliable were used for the testing. Main test were made withstandard function MatchTemplate from the OpenCV libraries.The algorithm uses a main image and a template. An influenceof these factors was tested. Main image and template have beenresized and the algorithm computing time and performancein Gtpix/s have been measured. According to the informationobtained from the research GPU computing using the hardwarementioned earlier is till 24 times faster when it is processing abig amount of information. When the images are small the performanceof CPU and GPU are not significantly different. Thechoice of the template size makes influence on calculating withCPU. Difference in the computing time between the GPUs canbe explained by the number of cores which they have.

    Full Text Available The MAGFLOW lava simulation model is a cellular automaton developed by the Sezione di Catania of the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV and it represents the peak of the evolution of cell-based models for lava-flow simulation. The accuracy and adherence to reality achieved by the physics-based cell evolution of MAGFLOW comes at the cost of significant computational times for long-running simulations. The present study describes the efforts and results obtained by porting the original serial code to the parallel computational platforms offered by modern video cards, and in particular to the NVIDIA Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA. A number of optimization strategies that have been used to achieve optimal performance on a graphic processing units (GPU are also discussed. The actual benefits of running on the GPU rather than the central processing unit depends on the extent and duration of the simulated event; for large, long-running simulations, the GPU can be 70-to-80-times faster, while for short-lived eruptions with a small extents the speed improvements obtained are 40-to-50 times.

    Full Text Available Decision tree is one of the famous classification methods in data mining. Many researches have been proposed, which were focusing on improving the performance of decision tree. However, those algorithms are developed and run on traditional distributed systems. Obviously the latency could not be improved while processing huge data generated by ubiquitous sensing node in the era without new technology help. In order to improve data processing latency in huge data mining, in this paper, we design and implement a new parallelized decision tree algorithm on a CUDA (compute unified device architecture, which is a GPGPU solution provided by NVIDIA. In the proposed system, CPU is responsible for flow control while the GPU is responsible for computation. We have conducted many experiments to evaluate system performance of CUDT and made a comparison with traditional CPU version. The results show that CUDT is 5∼55 times faster than Weka-j48 and is 18 times speedup than SPRINT for large data set.

    Full Text Available Parallel computing can offer an enormous advantage regarding the performance for very large applications in almost any field: scientific computing, computer vision, databases, data mining, and economics. GPUs are high performance many-core processors that can obtain very high FLOP rates. Since the first idea of using GPU for general purpose computing, things have evolved and now there are several approaches to GPU programming: CUDA from NVIDIA and Stream from AMD. CUDA is now a popular programming model for general purpose computations on GPU for C/C++ programmers. A great number of applications were ported to CUDA programming model and they obtain speedups of orders of magnitude comparing to optimized CPU implementations. In this paper we present an implementation of a library for solving linear systems using the CCUDA framework. We present the results of performance tests and show that using GPU one can obtain speedups of about of approximately 80 times comparing with a CPU implementation.

    The Grover quantum search algorithm, one of only a few representative quantum algorithms, can speed up many classical algorithms that use search heuristics. No true quantum computer has yet been developed. For the present, simulation is one effective means of verifying the search algorithm. In this work, we focus on the simulation workflow using a compute unified device architecture (CUDA). Two simulation workflow schemes are proposed. These schemes combine the characteristics of the Grover algorithm and the parallelism of general-purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPU). We also analyzed the optimization of memory space and memory access from this perspective. We implemented four programs on CUDA to evaluate the performance of schemes and optimization. Through experimentation, we analyzed the organization of threads suited to Grover algorithm simulations, compared the storage costs of the four programs, and validated the effectiveness of optimization. Experimental results also showed that the distinguished program on CUDA outperformed the serial program of libquantum on a CPU with a speedup of up to 23 times (12 times on average), depending on the scale of the simulation.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents a parallel TBB-CUDA implementation for the acceleration of single-Gaussian distribution model, which is effective for background removal in the video-based fire detection system. In this framework, TBB mainly deals with initializing work of the estimated Gaussian model running on CPU, and CUDA performs background removal and adaption of the model running on GPU. This implementation can exploit the combined computation power of TBB-CUDA, which can be applied to the real-time environment. Over 220 video sequences are utilized in the experiments. The experimental results illustrate that TBB+CUDA can achieve a higher speedup than both TBB and CUDA. The proposed framework can effectively overcome the disadvantages of limited memory bandwidth and few execution units of CPU, and it reduces data transfer latency and memory latency between CPU and GPU.

    Full Text Available Graphic processing units (GPUs are rapidly gaining maturity as powerful general parallel computing devices. A key feature in the development of modern GPUs has been the advancement of the programming model and programming tools. Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA is a software platform for massively parallel high-performance computing on Nvidia many-core GPUs. In functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI, the volume of the data to be processed, and the type of statistical analysis to perform call for high-performance computing strategies. In this work, we present the main features of the R-CUDA package cudaBayesreg which implements in CUDA the core of a Bayesian multilevel model for the analysis of brain fMRI data. The statistical model implements a Gibbs sampler for multilevel/hierarchical linear models with a normal prior. The main contribution for the increased performance comes from the use of separate threads for fitting the linear regression model at each voxel in parallel. The R-CUDA implementation of the Bayesian model proposed here has been able to reduce significantly the run-time processing of Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC simulations used in Bayesian fMRI data analyses. Presently, cudaBayesreg is only configured for Linux systems with Nvidia CUDA support.

    Image segmentation techniques using fuzzy connectedness principles have shown their effectiveness in segmenting a variety of objects in several large applications in recent years. However, one problem of these algorithms has been their excessive computational requirements when processing large image datasets. Nowadays commodity graphics hardware provides high parallel computing power. In this paper, we present a parallel fuzzy connected image segmentation algorithm on Nvidia's Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) platform for segmenting large medical image data sets. Our experiments based on three data sets with small, medium, and large data size demonstrate the efficiency of the parallel algorithm, which achieves a speed-up factor of 7.2x, 7.3x, and 14.4x, correspondingly, for the three data sets over the sequential implementation of fuzzy connected image segmentation algorithm on CPU.

    2014-01-01

    Synergia is a parallel, 3-dimensional space-charge particle-in-cell accelerator modeling code. We present our work porting the purely MPI-based version of the code to a hybrid of CPU and GPU computing kernels. The hybrid code uses the CUDA platform in the same framework as the pure MPI solution. We have implemented a lock-free collaborative charge-deposition algorithm for the GPU, as well as other optimizations, including local communication avoidance for GPUs, a customized FFT, and fine-tuned memory access patterns. On a small GPU cluster (up to 4 Tesla C1070 GPUs), our benchmarks exhibit both superior peak performance and better scaling than a CPU cluster with 16 nodes and 128 cores. We also compare the code performance on different GPU architectures, including C1070 Tesla and K20 Kepler.

    Full Text Available Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI allows to noninvasively measure the diffusion of water in fibrous tissue. By reconstructing the fibers from DTI data using a fiber-tracking algorithm, we can deduce the structure of the tissue. In this paper, we outline an approach to accelerating such a fiber-tracking algorithm using a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU. This algorithm, which is based on the calculation of geodesics, has shown promising results for both synthetic and real data, but is limited in its applicability by its high computational requirements. We present a solution which uses the parallelism offered by modern GPUs, in combination with the CUDA platform by NVIDIA, to significantly reduce the execution time of the fiber-tracking algorithm. Compared to a multithreaded CPU implementation of the same algorithm, our GPU mapping achieves a speedup factor of up to 40 times.

    2012-01-01

    This paper presents a stiff needle-deformable tissue interaction model. The model uses a mesh-less discretization of continuum; avoiding thus the expensive remeshing required by the finite element models. The proposed model can accommodate both linear and nonlinear material characteristics. The needle-deformable tissue interaction is modeled through fundamental boundaries. The forces applied by the needle on the tissue are divided in tangent forces and constraint forces. The constraint forces are adaptively computed such that the material is properly constrained by the needle. The implementation is accelerated using NVidia CUDA. We present detailed analysis of the execution timing in both serial and parallel case. The proposed needle insertion model was integrated in a custom software that loads DICOM images, generate the deformable model, and can simulate different insertion strategies.

  5. Swan: A tool for porting CUDA programs to OpenCL

    Harvey, M. J.; De Fabritiis, G.

    2011-04-01

    The use of modern, high-performance graphical processing units (GPUs) for acceleration of scientific computation has been widely reported. The majority of this work has used the CUDA programming model supported exclusively by GPUs manufactured by NVIDIA. An industry standardisation effort has recently produced the OpenCL specification for GPU programming. This offers the benefits of hardware-independence and reduced dependence on proprietary tool-chains. Here we describe a source-to-source translation tool, "Swan" for facilitating the conversion of an existing CUDA code to use the OpenCL model, as a means to aid programmers experienced with CUDA in evaluating OpenCL and alternative hardware. While the performance of equivalent OpenCL and CUDA code on fixed hardware should be comparable, we find that a real-world CUDA application ported to OpenCL exhibits an overall 50% increase in runtime, a reduction in performance attributable to the immaturity of contemporary compilers. The ported application is shown to have platform independence, running on both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs without modification. We conclude that OpenCL is a viable platform for developing portable GPU applications but that the more mature CUDA tools continue to provide best performance.

    2011-01-01

    For improving safety and cost effectiveness of nuclear power plants, a core calculation code SCOPE2 has been developed, which adopts detailed calculation models such as the multi-group nodal SP3 transport calculation method in three-dimensional pin-by-pin geometry to achieve high predictability. However, it is difficult to apply the code to loading pattern optimizations since it requires much longer computation time than that of codes based on the nodal diffusion method which is widely used in core design calculations. In this study, we studied possibility of acceleration of SCOPE2 with GPU computing capability which has been recognized as one of the most promising direction of high performance computing. In the previous study with an experimental programming framework, it required much effort to convert the algorithms to ones which fit to GPU computation. It was found, however, that this conversion was tremendously difficult because of the complexity of algorithms and restrictions in implementation. In this study, to overcome this complexity, we utilized the CUDA programming environment provided by NVIDIA which is a versatile and flexible language as an extension to the C/C++ languages. It was confirmed that we could enjoy high performance without degradation of maintainability through test implementation of GPU kernels for neutron diffusion/simplified P3 equation solvers. (author)

    Push-based database management system (DBMS) is a new type of data processing software that streams large volume of data to concurrent query operators. The high data rate of such systems requires large computing power provided by the query engine. In our previous work, we built a push-based DBMS named G-SDMS to harness the unrivaled computational capabilities of modern GPUs. A major design goal of G-SDMS is to support concurrent processing of heterogenous query processing operations and enable resource allocation among such operations. Understanding the performance of operations as a result of resource consumption is thus a premise in the design of G-SDMS. With NVIDIA's CUDA framework as the system implementation platform, we present our recent work on performance modeling of CUDA kernels running concurrently under a runtime mechanism named CUDA stream . Specifically, we explore the connection between performance and resource occupancy of compute-bound kernels and develop a model that can predict the performance of such kernels. Furthermore, we provide an in-depth anatomy of the CUDA stream mechanism and summarize the main kernel scheduling disciplines in it. Our models and derived scheduling disciplines are verified by extensive experiments using synthetic and real-world CUDA kernels.

    The increase in performance of Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) and the onward development of dedicated software tools within the last decade allows to transfer performance-demanding computations from the Central Processing Unit (CPU) to the GPU and to speed up certain tasks by utilizing the massiv parallel architecture of these devices. The Computate Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) developed by NVIDIA provides an easy hence effective way to develop application that target NVIDIA GPUs. It has become one of the cardinal software tools for this purpose. Recently the Open Computing Language (OpenCL) became available that is neither vendor-specific nor limited to GPUs only. As the benefits of CUDA-based image reconstruction are well known we aim at providing a comparison between the performance that can be achieved with CUDA in comparison to OpenCL by benchmarking the time required to perform a simple but computationally demanding task: the perspective backprojection.

    Modern cancer research often involves large datasets and the use of sophisticated statistical techniques. Together these add a heavy computational load to the analysis, which is often coupled with issues surrounding data accessibility. Connectivity mapping is an advanced bioinformatic and computational technique dedicated to therapeutics discovery and drug re-purposing around differential gene expression analysis. On a normal desktop PC, it is common for the connectivity mapping task with a single gene signature to take > 2h to complete using sscMap, a popular Java application that runs on standard CPUs (Central Processing Units). Here, we describe new software, cudaMap, which has been implemented using CUDA C/C++ to harness the computational power of NVIDIA GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) to greatly reduce processing times for connectivity mapping. cudaMap can identify candidate therapeutics from the same signature in just over thirty seconds when using an NVIDIA Tesla C2050 GPU. Results from the analysis of multiple gene signatures, which would previously have taken several days, can now be obtained in as little as 10 minutes, greatly facilitating candidate therapeutics discovery with high throughput. We are able to demonstrate dramatic speed differentials between GPU assisted performance and CPU executions as the computational load increases for high accuracy evaluation of statistical significance. Emerging 'omics' technologies are constantly increasing the volume of data and information to be processed in all areas of biomedical research. Embracing the multicore functionality of GPUs represents a major avenue of local accelerated computing. cudaMap will make a strong contribution in the discovery of candidate therapeutics by enabling speedy execution of heavy duty connectivity mapping tasks, which are increasingly required in modern cancer research. cudaMap is open source and can be freely downloaded from http://purl.oclc.org/NET/cudaMap.

    A new 3D Proton Induced X-Ray Emission Tomography (PIXE-T) and Scanning Transmission Ion Microscopy Tomography (STIM-T) simulation software has been developed in Java and uses NVIDIA™ Common Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) to calculate the X-ray attenuation for large detector areas. A challenge with PIXE-T is to get sufficient counts while retaining a small beam spot size. Therefore a high geometric efficiency is required. However, as the detector solid angle increases the calculations required for accurate reconstruction of the data increase substantially. To overcome this limitation, the CUDA parallel computing platform was used which enables general purpose programming of NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) to perform computations traditionally handled by the central processing unit (CPU). For simulation performance evaluation, the results of a CPU- and a CUDA-based simulation of a phantom are presented. Furthermore, a comparison with the simulation code in the PIXE-Tomography reconstruction software DISRA (A. Sakellariou, D.N. Jamieson, G.J.F. Legge, 2001) is also shown. Compared to a CPU implementation, the CUDA based simulation is approximately 30× faster.

    Seismic wave propagation codes are essential tools to investigate a variety of wave phenomena in the Earth. Furthermore, they can now be used for seismic full-waveform inversions in regional- and global-scale adjoint tomography. Although these seismic wave propagation solvers are crucial ingredients to improve the resolution of tomographic images to answer important questions about the nature of Earth's internal processes and subsurface structure, their practical application is often limited due to high computational costs. They thus need high-performance computing (HPC) facilities to improving the current state of knowledge. At present, numerous large HPC systems embed many-core architectures such as graphics processing units (GPUs) to enhance numerical performance. Such hardware accelerators can be programmed using either the CUDA programming environment or the OpenCL language standard. CUDA software development targets NVIDIA graphic cards while OpenCL was adopted by additional hardware accelerators, like e.g. AMD graphic cards, ARM-based processors as well as Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. For seismic wave propagation simulations using the open-source spectral-element code package SPECFEM3D_GLOBE, we incorporated an automatic source-to-source code generation tool (BOAST) which allows us to use meta-programming of all computational kernels for forward and adjoint runs. Using our BOAST kernels, we generate optimized source code for both CUDA and OpenCL languages within the source code package. Thus, seismic wave simulations are able now to fully utilize CUDA and OpenCL hardware accelerators. We show benchmarks of forward seismic wave propagation simulations using SPECFEM3D_GLOBE on CUDA/OpenCL GPUs, validating results and comparing performances for different simulations and hardware usages.

    2018-06-01

    A new CUDA-C code for tracing orbits around non-charged black holes is presented. This code, named MALBEC, take advantage of the graphic processing units and the CUDA platform for tracking null and timelike test particles in Schwarzschild and Kerr. Also, a new general set of equations that describe the closed circular orbits of any timelike test particle in the equatorial plane is derived. These equations are extremely important in order to compare the analytical behavior of the orbits with the numerical results and verify the correct implementation of the Runge-Kutta algorithm in MALBEC. Finally, other numerical tests are performed, demonstrating that MALBEC is able to reproduce some well-known results in these metrics in a faster and more efficient way than a conventional CPU implementation.

    Full Text Available Ultrahigh definition video streaming has been explored in recent years. Most recently the possibility of 4kUHD video streaming over wireless 802.11n was presented, using preencoded video. Live encoding for streaming using x264 has proven to be very slow. The use of parallel encoding has been explored to speed up the process using CUDA. However there hasnot been a parallel implementation for video streaming. We therefore present for the first time a novel implementation of 4kUHD live encoding for streaming over a wireless network at low bitrate indoors, using CUDA for parallel H264 encoding. Our experimental results are used to verify our claim.

    Calculation of the matrix-vector multiplication in the real-world problems often involves large matrix with arbitrary size. Therefore, parallelization is needed to speed up the calculation process that usually takes a long time. Graph partitioning techniques that have been discussed in the previous studies cannot be used to complete the parallelized calculation of matrix-vector multiplication with arbitrary size. This is due to the assumption of graph partitioning techniques that can only solve the square and symmetric matrix. Hypergraph partitioning techniques will overcome the shortcomings of the graph partitioning technique. This paper addresses the efficient parallelization of matrix-vector multiplication through hypergraph partitioning techniques using CUDA GPU-based parallel computing. CUDA (compute unified device architecture) is a parallel computing platform and programming model that was created by NVIDIA and implemented by the GPU (graphics processing unit).

    Using blobs allows modeling the CT system's geometry more correctly within an iterative reconstruction framework. However their application comes with an increased computational demand. This led us to use blobs for image representation and a dedicated GPU hardware implementation to counteract their computational demand. Making extensive use of the texture interpolation capabilities of CUDA and implementing an asymmetric projector/backprojector pair we achieve reasonable processing times and good system modeling at the same time.

    2018-02-01

    The development of chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-seq) technology has revolutionized the genetic analysis of the basic mechanisms underlying transcription regulation and led to accumulation of information about a huge amount of DNA sequences. There are a lot of web services which are currently available for de novo motif discovery in datasets containing information about DNA/protein binding. An enormous motif diversity makes their finding challenging. In order to avoid the difficulties, researchers use different stochastic approaches. Unfortunately, the efficiency of the motif discovery programs dramatically declines with the query set size increase. This leads to the fact that only a fraction of top "peak" ChIP-Seq segments can be analyzed or the area of analysis should be narrowed. Thus, the motif discovery in massive datasets remains a challenging issue. Argo_Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) web service is designed to process the massive DNA data. It is a program for the detection of degenerate oligonucleotide motifs of fixed length written in 15-letter IUPAC code. Argo_CUDA is a full-exhaustive approach based on the high-performance GPU technologies. Compared with the existing motif discovery web services, Argo_CUDA shows good prediction quality on simulated sets. The analysis of ChIP-Seq sequences revealed the motifs which correspond to known transcription factor binding sites.

    The computation costs of neutronics calculation code become higher as physics models and methods are complicated. The degree of them in neutronics calculation tends to be limited due to available computing power. In order to open a door to the new world, use of GPU for general purpose computing, called GPGPU, has been studied [1]. GPU has multi-threads computing mechanism enabled with multi-processors which realize mush higher performance than CPUs. NVIDIA recently released the CUDA language for general purpose computation which is a C-like programming language. It is relatively easy to learn compared to the conventional ones used for GPGPU, such as OpenGL or CG. Therefore application of GPU to the numerical calculation became much easier. In this paper, we tried to accelerate nuclide burnup calculation, which is important to predict nuclides time dependence in the core, using GPU with CUDA. We chose the 4.-order Runge-Kutta method to solve the nuclide burnup equation. The nuclide burnup calculation and the 4.-order Runge-Kutta method were suitable to the first step of introduction CUDA into numerical calculation because these consist of simple operations of matrices and vectors of single precision where actual codes were written in the C++ language. Our experimental results showed that nuclide burnup calculations with GPU have possibility of speedup by factor of 100 compared to that with CPU. (authors)

    Full Text Available Using modern Graphic Processing Units (GPUs becomes very useful for computing complex and time consuming processes. GPUs provide high–performance computation capabilities with a good price. This paper deals with a multi–GPU OpenCL and CUDA implementations of k–Nearest Neighbor (k–NN algorithm. This work compares performances of OpenCLand CUDA implementations where each of them is suitable for different number of used attributes. The proposed CUDA algorithm achieves acceleration up to 880x in comparison witha single thread CPU version. The common k-NN was modified to be faster when the lower number of k neighbors is set. The performance of algorithm was verified with two GPUs dual-core NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 and CPU Intel Core i7 3770 with 4.1 GHz frequency. The results of speed up were measured for one GPU, two GPUs, three and four GPUs. We performed several tests with data sets containing up to 4 million elements with various number of attributes.

    Image interpolation is often required during medical image processing and analysis. Although interpolation method based on Gaussian radial basis function (GRBF) has high precision, the long calculation time still limits its application in field of image interpolation. To overcome this problem, a method of two-dimensional and three-dimensional medical image GRBF interpolation based on computing unified device architecture (CUDA) is proposed in this paper. According to single instruction multiple threads (SIMT) executive model of CUDA, various optimizing measures such as coalesced access and shared memory are adopted in this study. To eliminate the edge distortion of image interpolation, natural suture algorithm is utilized in overlapping regions while adopting data space strategy of separating 2D images into blocks or dividing 3D images into sub-volumes. Keeping a high interpolation precision, the 2D and 3D medical image GRBF interpolation achieved great acceleration in each basic computing step. The experiments showed that the operative efficiency of image GRBF interpolation based on CUDA platform was obviously improved compared with CPU calculation. The present method is of a considerable reference value in the application field of image interpolation.

  18. GAMUT: GPU accelerated microRNA analysis to uncover target genes through CUDA-miRanda

    Science.gov (United States)

    2014-01-01

    Background Non-coding sequences such as microRNAs have important roles in disease processes. Computational microRNA target identification (CMTI) is becoming increasingly important since traditional experimental methods for target identification pose many difficulties. These methods are time-consuming, costly, and often need guidance from computational methods to narrow down candidate genes anyway. However, most CMTI methods are computationally demanding, since they need to handle not only several million query microRNA and reference RNA pairs, but also several million nucleotide comparisons within each given pair. Thus, the need to perform microRNA identification at such large scale has increased the demand for parallel computing. Methods Although most CMTI programs (e.g., the miRanda algorithm) are based on a modified Smith-Waterman (SW) algorithm, the existing parallel SW implementations (e.g., CUDASW++ 2.0/3.0, SWIPE) are unable to meet this demand in CMTI tasks. We present CUDA-miRanda, a fast microRNA target identification algorithm that takes advantage of massively parallel computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPU) using NVIDIA's Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). CUDA-miRanda specifically focuses on the local alignment of short (i.e., ≤ 32 nucleotides) sequences against longer reference sequences (e.g., 20K nucleotides). Moreover, the proposed algorithm is able to report multiple alignments (up to 191 top scores) and the corresponding traceback sequences for any given (query sequence, reference sequence) pair. Results Speeds over 5.36 Giga Cell Updates Per Second (GCUPs) are achieved on a server with 4 NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPUs. Compared to the original miRanda algorithm, which is evaluated on an Intel Xeon E5620@2.4 GHz CPU, the experimental results show up to 166 times performance gains in terms of execution time. In addition, we have verified that the exact same targets were predicted in both CUDA-miRanda and the original mi

    CELES is a freely available MATLAB toolbox to simulate light scattering by many spherical particles. Aiming at high computational performance, CELES leverages block-diagonal preconditioning, a lookup-table approach to evaluate costly functions and massively parallel execution on NVIDIA graphics processing units using the CUDA computing platform. The combination of these techniques allows to efficiently address large electrodynamic problems (>104 scatterers) on inexpensive consumer hardware. In this paper, we validate near- and far-field distributions against the well-established multi-sphere T-matrix (MSTM) code and discuss the convergence behavior for ensembles of different sizes, including an exemplary system comprising 105 particles.

    Full Text Available The paper is devoted to the parallel computing. The algorithm for roundwood volume estimation had insufficient performance so it was decided to port its bottleneck part on the GPU. The analysis of various GPGPU techniques was observed and the NVIDIA CUDA technology was chosen for implementation. The results of the research have shown the high potential of the GPU implementation in the improvement performance of the computation. The speedup of the algorithm for the roundwood volume estimation is more than 300% after porting on GPU with implementation of the CUDA technology.

    The wearing degree of the wheel set tread is one of the main factors that influence the safety and stability of running train. Geometrical parameters mainly include flange thickness and flange height. Line structure laser light was projected on the wheel tread surface. The geometrical parameters can be deduced from the profile image. An online image acquisition system was designed based on asynchronous reset of CCD and CUDA parallel processing unit. The image acquisition was fulfilled by hardware interrupt mode. A high efficiency parallel segmentation algorithm based on CUDA was proposed. The algorithm firstly divides the image into smaller squares, and extracts the squares of the target by fusion of k_means and STING clustering image segmentation algorithm. Segmentation time is less than 0.97ms. A considerable acceleration ratio compared with the CPU serial calculation was obtained, which greatly improved the real-time image processing capacity. When wheel set was running in a limited speed, the system placed alone railway line can measure the geometrical parameters automatically. The maximum measuring speed is 120km/h.

  7. Accelerating Smith-Waterman Algorithm for Biological Database Search on CUDA-Compatible GPUs

    Munekawa, Yuma; Ino, Fumihiko; Hagihara, Kenichi

    This paper presents a fast method capable of accelerating the Smith-Waterman algorithm for biological database search on a cluster of graphics processing units (GPUs). Our method is implemented using compute unified device architecture (CUDA), which is available on the nVIDIA GPU. As compared with previous methods, our method has four major contributions. (1) The method efficiently uses on-chip shared memory to reduce the data amount being transferred between off-chip video memory and processing elements in the GPU. (2) It also reduces the number of data fetches by applying a data reuse technique to query and database sequences. (3) A pipelined method is also implemented to overlap GPU execution with database access. (4) Finally, a master/worker paradigm is employed to accelerate hundreds of database searches on a cluster system. In experiments, the peak performance on a GeForce GTX 280 card reaches 8.32 giga cell updates per second (GCUPS). We also find that our method reduces the amount of data fetches to 1/140, achieving approximately three times higher performance than a previous CUDA-based method. Our 32-node cluster version is approximately 28 times faster than a single GPU version. Furthermore, the effective performance reaches 75.6 giga instructions per second (GIPS) using 32 GeForce 8800 GTX cards.

    Full Text Available 2D or 3D rendering technology is used for graphically modelling many physical phenomena occurring in real life by means of the computers. On the other hand, the ever-increasing intensity of the graphics applications require that the image quality of the so-called modellings is enhanced and they are performed more quickly. In this direction, a new software and hardware-based architecture called CUDA has been introduced by Nvidia at the end of 2006. Thanks to this architecture, larger number of graphics processors has started contributing towards the parallel solutions of the general-purpose problems. In this study, this new parallel computing architecture is taken into consideration and an animation application consisting of humanoid robots with different behavioral characteristics is developed using the OpenGL library in C++. This animation is initially implemented on a single serial CPU and then parallelized using the CUDA architecture. Eventually, the serial and the parallel versions of the same animation are compared against each other on the basis of the number of image frames per second. The results reveal that the parallel application is by far the best yielding high quality images.

To this end, we describe the main works that have used at least one of the architectures. It was observed that the choice of OpenCL may seem more obvious for being a heterogeneous system. Nevertheless, it was concluded that CUDA, although it can be used only in

    We present an approach to investigate the memory behavior of a parallel kernel executing on thousands of threads simultaneously within the CUDA architecture. Our top-down approach allows for quickly identifying any significant differences between the execution of the many blocks and warps. As interesting warps are identified, we allow further investigation of memory behavior by visualizing the shared memory bank conflicts and global memory coalescence, first with an overview of a single warp with many operations and, subsequently, with a detailed view of a single warp and a single operation. We demonstrate the strength of our approach in the context of a parallel matrix transpose kernel and a parallel 1D Haar Wavelet transform kernel. © 2013 The Author(s) Computer Graphics Forum © 2013 The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd.

    2015-01-01

    This paper features an advanced implementation of the X-ray rendering algorithm that harnesses the giant computing power of the current commodity graphics processors to accelerate the generation of high resolution digitally reconstructed radiographs (DRRs). The presented pipeline exploits the latest features of NVIDIA Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) architectures, mainly bindless texture objects and dynamic parallelism. The rendering throughput is substantially improved by exploiting the interoperability mechanisms between CUDA and OpenGL. The benchmarks of our optimized rendering pipeline reflect its capability of generating DRRs with resolutions of 2048(2) and 4096(2) at interactive and semi interactive frame-rates using an NVIDIA GeForce 970 GTX device.

    Full Text Available This paper presents adaptable methods for achieving fast collision detection using the GPU and Nvidia CUDA together with Octrees. Earlier related work have focused on serial methods, while this paper presents a parallel solution which shows that there is a great increase in time if the number of operations is large. Two different models of the environment and the industrial robot are presented, the first is Octrees at different resolutions, the second is a point cloud representation. The relative merits of the two different world model representations are shown.

    ,000 US dollars. The release of NVIDIA's CUDA architecture which includes both hardware and programming environment in 2007 makes GPU computing attractive. Due to its highly parallel nature, lattice Boltzmann method is successfully ported into GPU with a performance benefit during the recent years. In the current work, LBM CUDA code is developed for different fluid flow and heat transfer problems. In this dissertation, lattice Boltzmann method and immersed boundary method are used to study natural convection in an enclosure with an array of conduting obstacles, double-diffusive convection in a vertical cavity with Soret and Dufour effects, PCM melting process in a latent heat thermal energy storage system with internal fins, mixed convection in a lid-driven cavity with a sinusoidal cylinder, and AC electrothermal pumping in microfluidic systems on a CUDA computational platform.

    Full Text Available The aim is to improve the performance of solving a problem of deformable solid mechanics through the use of GPGPU. The paper describes technologies for computing systems using both a central and a graphics processor and provides motivation for using CUDA technology as the efficient one.The paper also analyses methods to solve the problem of defining natural frequencies and design waveforms, i.e. an iteration method in the subspace. The method includes several stages. The paper considers the most resource-hungry stage, which defines the stiffness matrix in the subspace of eigenforms and gives the mathematical interpretation of this stage.The GPU choice as a computing device is justified. The paper presents an algorithm for calculating the stiffness matrix in the subspace of eigenforms taking into consideration the features of input data. The global stiffness matrix is very sparse, and its size can reach tens of millions. Therefore, it is represented as a set of the stiffness matrices of the single elements of a model. The paper analyses methods of data representation in the software and selects the best practices for GPU computing.It describes the software implementation using CUDA technology to calculate the stiffness matrix in the subspace of eigenforms. Due to the input data nature, it is impossible to use the universal libraries of matrix computations (cuSPARSE and cuBLAS for loading the GPU. For efficient use of GPU resources in the software implementation, the stiffness matrices of elements are built in the block matrices of a special form. The advantages of using shared memory in GPU calculations are described.The transfer to the GPU computations allowed a twentyfold increase in performance (as compared to the multithreaded CPU-implementation on the model of middle dimensions (degrees of freedom about 2 million. Such an acceleration of one stage speeds up defining the natural frequencies and waveforms by the iteration method in a subspace

    After the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011, intelligent visualization of seismic information is becoming important to understand the earthquake phenomena. On the other hand, to date, the quantity of seismic data becomes enormous as a progress of high accuracy observation network; we need to treat many parameters (e.g., positional information, origin time, magnitude, etc.) to efficiently display the seismic information. Therefore, high-speed processing of data and image information is necessary to handle enormous amounts of seismic data. Recently, GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) is used as an acceleration tool for data processing and calculation in various study fields. This movement is called GPGPU (General Purpose computing on GPUs). In the last few years the performance of GPU keeps on improving rapidly. GPU computing gives us the high-performance computing environment at a lower cost than before. Moreover, use of GPU has an advantage of visualization of processed data, because GPU is originally architecture for graphics processing. In the GPU computing, the processed data is always stored in the video memory. Therefore, we can directly write drawing information to the VRAM on the video card by combining CUDA and the graphics API. In this study, we employ CUDA and OpenGL and/or DirectX to realize full-GPU implementation. This method makes it possible to write drawing information to the VRAM on the video card without PCIe bus data transfer: It enables the high-speed processing of seismic data. The present study examines the GPU computing-based high-speed visualization and the feasibility for high-speed visualization system of hypocenter data.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The Smith-Waterman algorithm is one of the most widely used tools for searching biological sequence databases due to its high sensitivity. Unfortunately, the Smith-Waterman algorithm is computationally demanding, which is further compounded by the exponential growth of sequence databases. The recent emergence of many-core architectures, and their associated programming interfaces, provides an opportunity to accelerate sequence database searches using commonly available and inexpensive hardware. Findings Our CUDASW++ implementation (benchmarked on a single-GPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 graphics card and a dual-GPU GeForce GTX 295 graphics card provides a significant performance improvement compared to other publicly available implementations, such as SWPS3, CBESW, SW-CUDA, and NCBI-BLAST. CUDASW++ supports query sequences of length up to 59K and for query sequences ranging in length from 144 to 5,478 in Swiss-Prot release 56.6, the single-GPU version achieves an average performance of 9.509 GCUPS with a lowest performance of 9.039 GCUPS and a highest performance of 9.660 GCUPS, and the dual-GPU version achieves an average performance of 14.484 GCUPS with a lowest performance of 10.660 GCUPS and a highest performance of 16.087 GCUPS. Conclusion CUDASW++ is publicly available open-source software. It provides a significant performance improvement for Smith-Waterman-based protein sequence database searches by fully exploiting the compute capability of commonly used CUDA-enabled low-cost GPUs.

    2013-04-01

    In order to have a better understanding of the influence of buoyancy (intrinsic) and boundary (extrinsic) forces in a nonlinear rheology due to a power law fluid, some basics needs to be explored through 3D numerical calculation. As first approach, the already studied Stokes setup of a rising sphere will be used to calibrate the 3D model. Far field horizontal tectonic stress is applied to the sphere, which generates a vertical acceleration, buoyancy driven. This simple and known setup allows some benchmarking performed through systematic runs. The relative importance of intrinsic and extrinsic forces producing the wide variety of rates and styles of deformation, including absence of deformation and generating 3D stress patterns, will be determined. Relation between vertical motion and power law exponent will also be explored. The goal of these investigations will be to run models having topography and density structure from geophysical imaging as input, and 3D stress field as output. The stress distribution in Swiss Alps and Plateau and its implication for risk analysis is one of the perspective for this research. In fact, proximity of the stress to the failure is fundamental for risk assessment. Sensitivity of this to the accurate topography representation can then be evaluated. The developed 3D numerical codes, tuned for mid-sized cluster, need to be optimized, especially while running good resolution in full 3D. Therefor, two largely used computing platforms, MATLAB and FORTRAN 90 are explored. Starting with an easy adaptable and as short as possible MATLAB code, which is then upgraded in order to reach higher performance in simulation times and resolution. A significant speedup using the rising NVIDIA CUDA technology and resources is also possible. Programming in C-CUDA, creating some synchronization feature, and comparing the results with previous runs, helps us to investigate the new speedup possibilities allowed through GPU parallel computing. These codes

    2010-01-01

    This work examined the feasibility of utilizing Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to accelerate Monte Carlo neutron transport simulations. First, a clean-sheet MC code was written in C++ for an x86 CPU and later ported to run on GPUs using NVIDIA's CUDA programming language. After further optimization, the GPU ran 21 times faster than the CPU code when using single-precision floating point math. This can be further increased with no additional effort if accuracy is sacrificed for speed: using a compiler flag, the speedup was increased to 22x. Further, if double-precision floating point math is desired for neutron tracking through the geometry, a speedup of 11x was obtained. The GPUs have proven to be useful in this study, but the current generation does have limitations: the maximum memory currently available on a single GPU is only 4 GB; the GPU RAM does not provide error-checking and correction; and the optimization required for large speedups can lead to confusing code.

    This paper provides a novel hybrid model for solving the multiple pair-wise sequence alignment problem combining message passing interface and CUDA, the parallel computing platform and programming model invented by NVIDIA. The proposed model targets homogeneous cluster nodes equipped with similar Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) cards. The model consists of the Master Node Dispatcher (MND) and the Worker GPU Nodes (WGN). The MND distributes the workload among the cluster working nodes and then aggregates the results. The WGN performs the multiple pair-wise sequence alignments using the Smith-Waterman algorithm. We also propose a modified implementation to the Smith-Waterman algorithm based on computing the alignment matrices row-wise. The experimental results demonstrate a considerable reduction in the running time by increasing the number of the working GPU nodes. The proposed model achieved a performance of about 12 Giga cell updates per second when we tested against the SWISS-PROT protein knowledge base running on four nodes.

    Full Text Available Graphics processing unit (GPU has obtained great success in scientific computations for its tremendous computational horsepower and very high memory bandwidth. This paper discusses the efficient way to implement polynomial preconditioned conjugate gradient solver for the finite element computation of elasticity on NVIDIA GPUs using compute unified device architecture (CUDA. Sliced block ELLPACK (SBELL format is introduced to store sparse matrix arising from finite element discretization of elasticity with fewer padding zeros than traditional ELLPACK-based formats. Polynomial preconditioning methods have been investigated both in convergence and running time. From the overall performance, the least-squares (L-S polynomial method is chosen as a preconditioner in PCG solver to finite element equations derived from elasticity for its best results on different example meshes. In the PCG solver, mixed precision algorithm is used not only to reduce the overall computational, storage requirements and bandwidth but to make full use of the capacity of the GPU devices. With SBELL format and mixed precision algorithm, the GPU-based L-S preconditioned CG can get a speedup of about 7–9 to CPU-implementation.

    Solar dynamics from the convection zone creates a variety of waves that may propagate through the solar atmosphere. These waves are important in facilitating the energy transfer between the sun's surface and the corona as well as propagating energy throughout the solar system. How and where these waves are dissipated remains an open question. Advanced 3D numerical simulations have furthered our understanding of the processes involved. Fourier transforms to understand the nature of the waves by finding the frequency and wavelength of these waves through the simulated atmosphere, as well as the nature of their propagation and where they get dissipated. In order to analyze the different waves produced by the aforementioned simulations and models, Fast Fourier Transform algorithms will be applied. Since the processing of the multitude of different layers of the simulations (of the order of several 100^3 grid points) would be time intensive and inefficient on a CPU, CUDA, a computing architecture that harnesses the power of the GPU, will be used to accelerate the calculations.

    In China, natural disasters are characterized by wide distribution, severe destruction and high impact range, and they cause significant property damage and casualties every year. Following a disaster, timely and accurate acquisition of geospatial information can provide an important basis for disaster assessment, emergency relief, and reconstruction. In recent years, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) remote sensing systems have played an important role in major natural disasters, with UAVs becoming an important technique of obtaining disaster information. UAV is equipped with a non-metric digital camera with lens distortion, resulting in larger geometric deformation for acquired images, and affecting the accuracy of subsequent processing. The slow speed of the traditional CPU-based distortion correction algorithm cannot meet the requirements of disaster emergencies. Therefore, we propose a Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA)-based image distortion correction algorithm for UAV remote sensing, which takes advantage of the powerful parallel processing capability of the GPU, greatly improving the efficiency of distortion correction. Our experiments show that, compared with traditional CPU algorithms and regardless of image loading and saving times, the maximum acceleration ratio using our proposed algorithm reaches 58 times that using the traditional algorithm. Thus, data processing time can be reduced by one to two hours, thereby considerably improving disaster emergency response capability

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The Poisson-Boltzmann equation models the electrostatic potential generated by fixed charges on a polarizable solute immersed in an ionic solution. This approach is often used in computational structural biology to estimate the electrostatic energetic component of the assembly of molecular biological systems. In the last decades, the amount of data concerning proteins and other biological macromolecules has remarkably increased. To fruitfully exploit these data, a huge computational power is needed as well as software tools capable of exploiting it. It is therefore necessary to move towards high performance computing and to develop proper parallel implementations of already existing and of novel algorithms. Nowadays, workstations can provide an amazing computational power: up to 10 TFLOPS on a single machine equipped with multiple CPUs and accelerators such as Intel Xeon Phi or GPU devices. The actual obstacle to the full exploitation of modern heterogeneous resources is efficient parallel coding and porting of software on such architectures. In this paper, we propose the implementation of a full Poisson-Boltzmann solver based on a finite-difference scheme using different and combined parallel schemes and in particular a mixed MPI-CUDA implementation. Results show great speedups when using the two schemes, achieving an 18.9x speedup using three GPUs.

    Design of data structures for high performance computing (HPC) is one of the principal challenges facing researchers looking to utilize heterogeneous computing machinery. Heterogeneous systems derive cost, power, and speed efficiency by being composed of the appropriate hardware for the task. Yet, each type of processor requires a specific organization of the application state in order to achieve peak performance. Discovering this and refactoring the code can be a challenging and time-consuming task for the researcher, as the data structures and the computational model must be co-designed. We present a methodology that uses Python as the environment for which to explore tradeoffs in both the data structure design as well as the code executing on the computation accelerator. Our method enables multi-dimensional arrays to be used effectively in any target environment. We have chosen to focus on OpenMP and CUDA environments, thus exploring the development of optimized kernels for the two most common classes of computing hardware available today: multi-core CPU and GPU. Python s large palette of file and network access routines, its associative indexing syntax and support for common HPC environments makes it relevant for diverse hardware ranging from laptops through computing clusters to the highest performance supercomputers. Our work enables researchers to accelerate the development of their codes on the computing hardware of their choice.

    We present parallel processing implementation for rapid extraction of the quantitative phase maps from off-axis holograms on the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) of the computer using computer unified device architecture (CUDA) programming. To obtain efficient implementation, we parallelized both the wrapped phase map extraction algorithm and the two-dimensional phase unwrapping algorithm. In contrast to previous implementations, we utilized unweighted least squares phase unwrapping algorithm that better suits parallelism. We compared the proposed algorithm run times on the CPU and the GPU of the computer for various sizes of off-axis holograms. Using the GPU implementation, we extracted the unwrapped phase maps from the recorded off-axis holograms at 35 frames per second (fps) for 4 mega pixel holograms, and at 129 fps for 1 mega pixel holograms, which presents the fastest processing framerates obtained so far, to the best of our knowledge. We then used common-path off-axis interferometric imaging to quantitatively capture the phase maps of a micro-organism with rapid flagellum movements.

    Full Text Available Negli ultimi anni il settore biometrico sta compiendo, a livello mondiale, importanti passi in avanti soprattutto in termini di sviluppo e di diffusione. Questo trend positivo riguarda il mondo anglosassone e, in particolare, la realtà statunitense dove i sistemi biometrici vengono utilizzati, nelle più svariate situazioni, sia come controllo della sicurezza fisica delle persone, sia come terminali per l’autorizzazione all’accesso. La stessa diffusione non è riscontrabile nella maggior parte dei Paesi europei e in Italia dove raffrontiamo una realtà assai atipica nella quale la biometria fa un gran parlare di sé ma, in concreto, viene utilizzata con molta difficoltà. Tuttavia, un punto di contatto tra tutti gli attori europei ed extraeuropei può essere individuato nello sviluppo del settore relativo al riconoscimento biometrico applicato ai passaporti ed alle carte di identità. Il processo di globalizzazione ha generato, infatti, grandi masse di individui in continuo e costante movimento da un Paese all’altro e, contestualmente, ha prodotto una crescente domanda di sicurezza soprattutto nei confronti della minaccia terroristica. Appare chiaro, quindi, come l’identificazione certa delle persone diventi una necessità e debba presentare tecnologie simili per essere utilizzate ovunque.

    An effective way to improve the data acquisition speed of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is using under-sampled k-space data, and dictionary learning method can be used to maintain the reconstruction quality. Three-dimensional dictionary trains the atoms in dictionary in the form of blocks, which can utilize the spatial correlation among slices. Dual-dictionary learning method includes a low-resolution dictionary and a high-resolution dictionary, for sparse coding and image updating respectively. However, the amount of data is huge for three-dimensional reconstruction, especially when the number of slices is large. Thus, the procedure is time-consuming. In this paper, we first utilize the NVIDIA Corporation's compute unified device architecture (CUDA) programming model to design the parallel algorithms on graphics processing unit (GPU) to accelerate the reconstruction procedure. The main optimizations operate in the dictionary learning algorithm and the image updating part, such as the orthogonal matching pursuit (OMP) algorithm and the k-singular value decomposition (K-SVD) algorithm. Then we develop another version of CUDA code with algorithmic optimization.

    The interacting boson model (IBM) is a realistic model of nuclear structure, since it allows to cut off in a suitable way the complete space of the shell model states. In such a way, it offers a great simplicity of the numerical computation of the eigenvalue problem for a many-body non-relativistic quantum system, like a nucleus. In particular, the analytical solutions obtained in the case of dynamical symmetries correspond, in the classical limit, to completely integrable systems showing a regular dynamic behaviour. In this report, a detailed analysis is performed of the IBM version 2 (IBM-2), which explicitly introduces the isospin degree of freedom. The different forms of the IBM-2 Hamiltonian usually considered in the literature, are discussed, and the explicit relations existing between them are deduced. Moreover, the semiclassical limit of the most general IBM-2 Hamiltonian is studied in the details. Finally, the expectation of chaotic dynamic behaviour near to regular dynamics, in the IBM, and, in particular, the fact that the latter ones persist more than expected a priori, is shown. Maybe, this behaviour is to adduce to the existence of partial dynamic symmetries. [Italian] Il modello a bosoni interagenti (IBM) rappresenta un modello realistico della struttura nucleare, premettendo di troncare opportunamente lo spazio completo degli stati di modello a shell, e percio' offre una notevole semplicita' computazionale nella risoluzione numerica del problema degli autovalori per un sistema quantico non relativistico a molti corpi, quale e' un nucleo. In particolare, le soluzioni analitiche ottenute nel caso di simmetrie dinamiche corrispondono, nel limite classico, a sistemi completamente integrabili che mostrano un comportamento dinamico regolare. In questo rapporto viene condotta un'analisi dettagliata del modello IBM nella versione (IBM-2), il quale introduce esplicitamente il grado di liberta' di isospin. In particolare, sono

    Full Text Available Il grande evento è stato definito come una forma di “accelerazione” per la trasformazione dei sistemi urbani (Boeri, 2008 e per la costruzione di importanti opere nelle città ospitanti. Questo termine risulta ancora più appropriato se si fa riferimento ad una particolare categoria di infrastrutture: le attrezzature per la mobilità. Il lavoro proposto, partendo da una analisi di casi di studio internazionali, dimostra come la costruzione di sistemi di trasporto in occasione dei grandi eventi risulti occasione di sperimentazione e di costruzione di opere innovative e decisamente orientate ad una mobilità del futuro (Richards, 2001. L’analisi comparativa evidenzia come la costruzione di nuove opere e nuovi servizi di trasporto costituiscano icone mediatiche del grande evento e simboli della città ospitante, contribuendo alla diffusione di soluzioni innovative per la mobilità urbana. Il grande evento in sintesi diventa opportunità per la messa in pratica di prototipi di nuove forma di mobilità, la diffusione e la sperimentazione di nuove tecnologie. Mega events have been defined as a form of “speeding up” for urban system transformation (Boeri 2008 and for the implementation of ground-breaking policies in host cities. This term is even more appropriate if is referred to the construction of pioneering mobility systems. Big events and in particular Expo constitute opportunities for the building up of innovative solution for urban mobility, the diffusion and the testing of new technology and prototypes. This article, starting from a review of international study cases, shows how the construction of mobility systems for International Expo is an occasion of testing and constructing innovative transport infrastructures oriented to the mobility of the future (Richards 2001. The article illustrate this phenomena trough the study of the evolution during the last fifty years of transport planning and design in ten different Expo, describing

    Full Text Available As Graphics Processing Units (GPUs have gained in capability and GPU development environments have matured, developers are increasingly turning to the GPU to off-load the main host CPU of numerically-intensive, parallelizable computations. Modern GPUs feature hundreds of cores, and offer programming niceties such as double-precision floating point, and even limited recursion. This shift from CPU to GPU, however, raises the question: how do we know that these new GPU-based algorithms are correct? In order to explore this new verification frontier, we formalized a parallelizable all-pairs shortest path (APSP algorithm for weighted graphs, originally coded in NVIDIA's CUDA language, in ACL2. The ACL2 specification is written using a single-threaded object (stobj and tail recursion, as the stobj/tail recursion combination yields the most straightforward translation from imperative programming languages, as well as efficient, scalable executable specifications within ACL2 itself. The ACL2 version of the APSP algorithm can process millions of vertices and edges with little to no garbage generation, and executes at one-sixth the speed of a host-based version of APSP coded in C – a very respectable result for a theorem prover. In addition to formalizing the APSP algorithm (which uses Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm at its core, we have also provided capability that the original APSP code lacked, namely shortest path recovery. Path recovery is accomplished using a secondary ACL2 stobj implementing a LIFO stack, which is proven correct. To conclude the experiment, we ported the ACL2 version of the APSP kernels back to C, resulting in a less than 5% slowdown, and also performed a partial back-port to CUDA, which, surprisingly, yielded a slight performance increase.

    Full Text Available The sustainability of agricultural production systems is a recurrent topic in the public debate, tightly linked to resource use efficiency and energy saving principles. "Higher yield with lower input" is the paradigm that will guide us in the years to come. This will unavoidably call for a joint effort of different players from research, production and policy sectors. In this scenario, research has a key role since it is the only instrument that may generate a continuous flux of information that in the short-, medium- and long-term could effectively contribute to defining innovative production systems, more efficient and with a reduced environmental impact. In this short review, some aspects of sustainability in horticultural systems will be presented with a particular focus on the implementation of proven technology, production in saline environments and breeding strategies to improve crops resource use efficiency.

  9. Rapid data processing for ultrafast X-ray computed tomography using scalable and modular CUDA based pipelines

    2017-10-01

    Ultrafast X-ray tomography is an advanced imaging technique for the study of dynamic processes basing on the principles of electron beam scanning. A typical application case for this technique is e.g. the study of multiphase flows, that is, flows of mixtures of substances such as gas-liquidflows in pipelines or chemical reactors. At Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) a number of such tomography scanners are operated. Currently, there are two main points limiting their application in some fields. First, after each CT scan sequence the data of the radiation detector must be downloaded from the scanner to a data processing machine. Second, the current data processing is comparably time-consuming compared to the CT scan sequence interval. To enable online observations or use this technique to control actuators in real-time, a modular and scalable data processing tool has been developed, consisting of user-definable stages working independently together in a so called data processing pipeline, that keeps up with the CT scanner's maximal frame rate of up to 8 kHz. The newly developed data processing stages are freely programmable and combinable. In order to achieve the highest processing performance all relevant data processing steps, which are required for a standard slice image reconstruction, were individually implemented in separate stages using Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and NVIDIA's CUDA programming language. Data processing performance tests on different high-end GPUs (Tesla K20c, GeForce GTX 1080, Tesla P100) showed excellent performance.

    2010-04-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Due to its high sensitivity, the Smith-Waterman algorithm is widely used for biological database searches. Unfortunately, the quadratic time complexity of this algorithm makes it highly time-consuming. The exponential growth of biological databases further deteriorates the situation. To accelerate this algorithm, many efforts have been made to develop techniques in high performance architectures, especially the recently emerging many-core architectures and their associated programming models. Findings This paper describes the latest release of the CUDASW++ software, CUDASW++ 2.0, which makes new contributions to Smith-Waterman protein database searches using compute unified device architecture (CUDA. A parallel Smith-Waterman algorithm is proposed to further optimize the performance of CUDASW++ 1.0 based on the single instruction, multiple thread (SIMT abstraction. For the first time, we have investigated a partitioned vectorized Smith-Waterman algorithm using CUDA based on the virtualized single instruction, multiple data (SIMD abstraction. The optimized SIMT and the partitioned vectorized algorithms were benchmarked, and remarkably, have similar performance characteristics. CUDASW++ 2.0 achieves performance improvement over CUDASW++ 1.0 as much as 1.74 (1.72 times using the optimized SIMT algorithm and up to 1.77 (1.66 times using the partitioned vectorized algorithm, with a performance of up to 17 (30 billion cells update per second (GCUPS on a single-GPU GeForce GTX 280 (dual-GPU GeForce GTX 295 graphics card. Conclusions CUDASW++ 2.0 is publicly available open-source software, written in CUDA and C++ programming languages. It obtains significant performance improvement over CUDASW++ 1.0 using either the optimized SIMT algorithm or the partitioned vectorized algorithm for Smith-Waterman protein database searches by fully exploiting the compute capability of commonly used CUDA-enabled low-cost GPUs.

    In these years Information Technology has been used in activities that require an intelligent intervention. In this context take placing Decision Support Systems, since they use Information Technology to support users in decision processes, that is problems of logical level greater then problems normally treated by traditional information systems. The purpose of this work is to describe Decision Support Systems specifying what they are, their functionally and structure, identifying, furthermore, user types referred to and interaction modality between them; and to present a prototype of these systems. From a preliminary analyses phase of ENEA being and its Information Systems to understand which topics can be supported by systems of this type, it deals with one of these topics: weighing of new project, finding parameters, or key quantity, that affect and determine decisions. It describes, then, models, conceived form parameters, that permit to the user, through a simple representation of results, to evaluates advantages and disadvantages of a new project. From models, analyses of data necessary to models and from requisites of simplicity and use fullness of user interface, it has been carried out a prototype.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jiang, Hanyu; Ganesan, Narayan

    2016-02-27

    HMMER software suite is widely used for analysis of homologous protein and nucleotide sequences with high sensitivity. The latest version of hmmsearch in HMMER 3.x, utilizes heuristic-pipeline which consists of MSV/SSV (Multiple/Single ungapped Segment Viterbi) stage, P7Viterbi stage and the Forward scoring stage to accelerate homology detection. Since the latest version is highly optimized for performance on modern multi-core CPUs with SSE capabilities, only a few acceleration attempts report speedup. However, the most compute intensive tasks within the pipeline (viz., MSV/SSV and P7Viterbi stages) still stand to benefit from the computational capabilities of massively parallel processors. A Multi-Tiered Parallel Framework (CUDAMPF) implemented on CUDA-enabled GPUs presented here, offers a finer-grained parallelism for MSV/SSV and Viterbi algorithms. We couple SIMT (Single Instruction Multiple Threads) mechanism with SIMD (Single Instructions Multiple Data) video instructions with warp-synchronism to achieve high-throughput processing and eliminate thread idling. We also propose a hardware-aware optimal allocation scheme of scarce resources like on-chip memory and caches in order to boost performance and scalability of CUDAMPF. In addition, runtime compilation via NVRTC available with CUDA 7.0 is incorporated into the presented framework that not only helps unroll innermost loop to yield upto 2 to 3-fold speedup than static compilation but also enables dynamic loading and switching of kernels depending on the query model size, in order to achieve optimal performance. CUDAMPF is designed as a hardware-aware parallel framework for accelerating computational hotspots within the hmmsearch pipeline as well as other sequence alignment applications. It achieves significant speedup by exploiting hierarchical parallelism on single GPU and takes full advantage of limited resources based on their own performance features. In addition to exceeding performance of other

    Combined with standard mathematical model for evaluating quality of deploying results, a new high-performance parallel algorithm for source pencils' deployment was obtained by using parallel plant growth simulation algorithm which was completely parallelized with CUDA execute model, and the corresponding code can run on GPU. Based on such work, several instances in various scales were used to test the new version of algorithm. The results show that, based on the advantage of old versions. the performance of new one is improved more than 500 times comparing with the CPU version, and also 30 times with the CPU plus GPU hybrid version. The computation time of new version is less than ten minutes for the irradiator of which the activity is less than 111 PBq. For a single GTX275 GPU, the maximum computing power of new version is no more than 167 PBq as well as the computation time is no more than 25 minutes, and for multiple GPUs, the power can be improved more. Overall, the new version of algorithm running on GPU can satisfy the requirement of source pencils' deployment of any domestic irradiator, and it is of high competitiveness. (authors)

  18. Efficient particle-in-cell simulation of auroral plasma phenomena using a CUDA enabled graphics processing unit

    Sewell, Stephen

    This thesis introduces a software framework that effectively utilizes low-cost commercially available Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) to simulate complex scientific plasma phenomena that are modeled using the Particle-In-Cell (PIC) paradigm. The software framework that was developed conforms to the Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA), a standard for general purpose graphic processing that was introduced by NVIDIA Corporation. This framework has been verified for correctness and applied to advance the state of understanding of the electromagnetic aspects of the development of the Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis. For each phase of the PIC methodology, this research has identified one or more methods to exploit the problem's natural parallelism and effectively map it for execution on the graphic processing unit and its host processor. The sources of overhead that can reduce the effectiveness of parallelization for each of these methods have also been identified. One of the novel aspects of this research was the utilization of particle sorting during the grid interpolation phase. The final representation resulted in simulations that executed about 38 times faster than simulations that were run on a single-core general-purpose processing system. The scalability of this framework to larger problem sizes and future generation systems has also been investigated.

    Full Text Available L’utilizzo di sistemi frangisole è largamente diffuso nei nuovi edifici, ma le verifiche sul loro effetto sul campo sonoro in facciata sono ancora piuttosto limitate. Questo lavoro illustra i risultati di uno studio condotto in una camera semi-anecoica su un modello in scala reale di una porzione di facciata dotata di sistemi frangisole. Lo scopo era quello di verificare l’influenza sul livello sonoro in facciata di sistemi frangisole in differenti configurazioni (lamelle diversamente inclinate, con o senza rivestimento fonoassorbente. Le misure evidenziano che i frangisole con lamelle fonoassorbenti possono ridurre significativamente il livello sonoro sul piano della facciata. ------ The use of shading systems is quite widespread in new buildings, but their acoustic effect on the sound pressure level on building façades has generally not been considered. This work presents the results of an investigation on a 1:1 scale model of a louvers system, carried out in a semi-anechoic chamber. The aim was to analyze the changes in SPL on the façade given by the presence of the louvers in different configurations (three tilt angles of the louvers, with or without sound absorptive material. The measurements highlighted a slight increase in SPL on the façade when the standard louvers were installed, while the sound absorptive material gave an evident SPL reduction on the façade.

    servizi prestati e degli investimenti effettuati, fossero inadeguati. E che, quindi, in questo ambito si operasse prestando scarsa attenzione a una valutazione costi/benefici degli investimenti sostenuti, che pure si andavano facendo di dimensioni rilevanti. Un ruolo importante e crescente viene oggi affidato alla pianificazione dei sistemi informativi che annualmente la P.A. deve effettuare. Quando si parla di piano per i sistemi informativi ci si riferisce a un piano di medio-lungo termine, in riferimento e in coerenza al quale possano essere orientate, effettuate e controllate, nel corso del tempo, le scelte delle singole Amministrazioni o Enti Pubblici. Nel lavoro che segue si e` partiti dall`analisi della situazione italiana, che prevede l`utilizzo di una specifica metodologia prodotta dall`AIPA per la pianificazione dei sistemi informativi nella Pubblica Amministrazione. la parte innovativa e sperimentale della tesi e` volta all`adeguamento di tale metodologia ad una realta` quale e` l`ENEA, diversa ad esempio da quella di un Ministero (per la quale la proposta AIPA e` ottimale), sia perche` cambiano i fini istituzionali e le conseguenti modalita` di gestione, sia perche` l`Ente e` caratterizzato da un forte decentramento e sia soprattutto perche e` mancata un`indagine conoscitiva dei vari processi di servizio, preliminare all`applicazione della proposta AIPA.

    Monte Carlo (MC) method is able to accurately calculate eigenvalues in reactor analysis. Its lengthy computation time can be reduced by general-purpose computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPU), one of the latest parallel computing techniques under development. The method of porting a regular transport code to GPU is usually very straightforward due to the 'embarrassingly parallel' nature of MC code. However, the situation becomes different for eigenvalue calculation in that it will be performed on a generation-by-generation basis and the thread coordination should be explicitly taken care of. This paper presents our effort to develop such a GPU-based MC code in Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) environment. The code is able to perform eigenvalue calculation under simple geometries on a multi-GPU system. The specifics of algorithm design, including thread organization and memory management were described in detail. The original CPU version of the code was tested on an Intel Xeon X5660 2.8 GHz CPU, and the adapted GPU version was tested on NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPUs. Double-precision floating point format was used throughout the calculation. The result showed that a speedup of 7.0 and 33.3 were obtained for a bare spherical core and a binary slab system respectively. The speedup factor was further increased by a factor of {approx}2 on a dual GPU system. The upper limit of device-level parallelism was analyzed, and a possible method to enhance the thread-level parallelism was proposed. (authors)

    Molecular dynamics simulation is a powerful tool to simulate and analyze complex physical processes and phenomena at atomic characteristic for predicting the natural time-evolution of a system of atoms. Precise simulation of physical processes has strong requirements both in the simulation size and computing timescale. Therefore, finding available computing resources is crucial to accelerate computation. However, a tremendous computational resource (GPGPU) are recently being utilized for general purpose computing due to its high performance of floating-point arithmetic operation, wide memory bandwidth and enhanced programmability. As for the most time-consuming component in MD simulation calculation during the case of studying liquid metal solidification processes, this paper presents a fine-grained spatial decomposition method to accelerate the computation of update of neighbor lists and interaction force calculation by take advantage of modern graphics processors units (GPU), enlarging the scale of the simulation system to a simulation system involving 10 000 000 atoms. In addition, a number of evaluations and tests, ranging from executions on different precision enabled-CUDA versions, over various types of GPU (NVIDIA 480GTX, 580GTX and M2050) to CPU clusters with different number of CPU cores are discussed. The experimental results demonstrate that GPU-based calculations are typically 9∼11 times faster than the corresponding sequential execution and approximately 1.5∼2 times faster than 16 CPU cores clusters implementations. On the basis of the simulated results, the comparisons between the theoretical results and the experimental ones are executed, and the good agreement between the two and more complete and larger cluster structures in the actual macroscopic materials are observed. Moreover, different nucleation and evolution mechanism of nano-clusters and nano-crystals formed in the processes of metal solidification is observed with large

    The intention to start first plant-wide control applications based on fieldbus in ENEL (Electric Power Production Company) combined cycle plants demands to define appropriate requirements for design, planning, implementation, technical management and maintenance of control systems. One of the first needs is to express, in the bid specifications for Dc san other plant components, those requirements necessary on one side to guarantee the same levels of performance and reliability of traditional systems, and on the other side to ensure the improvement of the operations of installation and commissioning and of management of normal and abnormal plant behaviour, which are among the main benefits expected from this new technology. The definition of such requirements appears to be complex due to the variety and lack of a homogenous approach of the different market solutions, and also because a real experience of systems of considerable size is still missing.

    One tool to improve the performance of Monte Carlo methods for numerical simulation of light transport in the Earth's atmosphere is the parallel technology. A new algorithm oriented to parallel execution on the CUDA-enabled NVIDIA graphics processor is discussed. The efficiency of parallelization is analyzed on the basis of calculating the upward and downward fluxes of solar radiation in both a vertically homogeneous and inhomogeneous models of the atmosphere. The results of testing the new code under various atmospheric conditions including continuous singlelayered and multilayered clouds, and selective molecular absorption are presented. The results of testing the code using video cards with different compute capability are analyzed. It is shown that the changeover of computing from conventional PCs to the architecture of graphics processors gives more than a hundredfold increase in performance and fully reveals the capabilities of the technology used.

    Full Text Available Büyük küçük tüm sağlık kuruluşlarının, sürekliliklerini sağlayabilmeleri ve hedeflerine ulaşabilmeleri bakımından en önemli kriter etkili bir iç kontrol sistemine sahip olmalarıdır. Özellikle Türkiye gibi ekonomisi gelişmekte olan, ticari aktörlerinin çok büyük bir kısmı KOBİ statüsünde olan ülkelerde, ekonomik hayatı hareketlendirmek, sermaye piyasalarının gelişmesi ve işlerliğinin kuvvetlenmesinin sağlanmasında da yine en temel kriter etkin ve etkili bir iç kontrol siteminin varlığıdır. Çünkü etkili bir iç kontrol sistemi; hata, hile ve yolsuzlukların önlenmesinde ve işletme içinde uygulanan politika ve prosedürlerin uygulanma düzeyi ve verimliliğinin sağlanmasında da önemli bir etkendir. İster büyük, ister küçük olsun her işletmede etkin olan ya da olmayan bir iç kontrol mevcuttur. Ancak bu kontrollerin işletmede belirlenmiş bulunan belli politika ve prosedürlere göre yapılıp yapılmadığı ya da etkin olup olmadıkları tartışılabilmektedir. Ülkemizdeki sağlık kuruluşlarından, özellikle sermaye piyasalarında işlem gören kuruluşlarda mevzuatlar gereği iç kontrol sistemi kurulmuş olmasma rağmen, bu iç kontrol sisteminin tamamıyla örgütsel amaçlar doğrultusunda etkili ve verimli şekilde çalıştığını söylemek mümkün değildir. Ülkemizdeki KOBİ niteliğindeki sağlık kuruluşlarının hatırı bir kısmında ise iç kontrol sisteminin oldukça yetersiz ve zayıf olarak nitelenebilecek şekilde uygulandığı ifade edilebilir. Bu da diğer tüm KOBÎ'lerde olduğu gibi sağlık alanındaki kuruluşların büyüme, gelişme ve kurumsallaşması üzerine olumsuz etkide bulunmaktadır. Daha da önemlisi de kurumların örgütsel amaçlarını gerçekleştirmesinde zorluklarla karşılaşmasına sebep olmaktadır. Başka bir deyişle, etkin iç kontrol sisteminin işletmelerin ilgililerine fayda sağlaması gereklidir. Böylece i

    Full Text Available L’articolo propone un approfondimento sul tema della mobilità turistica. Partendo da recenti esperienze progettuali realizzate e da realizzare, il contributo analizza in ambiti turistici differenti tra loro il ruolo dei sistemi di trasporto a fune. Essi risultano di particolare interesse perché svolgono spesso il duplice ruolo di elementi della offerta di trasporto per la mobilità sistematica e rappresentano in sé attrattive turistiche, specie se pensate secondo criteri di qualità architettonica e di sostenibilità ambientale.Accessibility and mobility have an important role in urban and regional development strategies, in a particular way for the touristic uses of territories. Transport infrastructures constitute in fact necessary elements for the use of urban areas, but assume an extra function related to the valorization of the territory. Furthermore structures for mobility are a component of the touristic supply system especially the rope transport structures that offer dynamic and unique point of views. Cable ways in urban area have this characteristic more than other rope transport systems. Starting from this assume, the article describes four projects developed in the last years in Campania Region and a transport system carry out in Perugia. The five study cases demonstrate how an increasing attention rope transport technology is diffusing in different contest especially for tourism uses. The first case is the Giffoni Valle Piana inclined lift that should connect the city centre in the valley with the medieval Castle. This project is strictly related to a general touristic strategy of the whole municipality. The second project regards the Ravello-Minori cable way and the objective to offer a sustainable alternative to the private car for travelling around two of the most beautiful areas in the Amalfi coast. The third project is located in the centre of the city of Naples and regards a cable way for the connection between the

    The purpose of this work is to define the state of the art about the problem of the indicators and their capability in reading and foreseeing the urban complexity. Therefore, the theoretical elaborations and the suggestions developed in the report try to convert the different contributions in the Italian and international literature in a frame-work, focusing on those arguments which assume a key role in the study of the urban areas: (a) the problematic definition of the administrative, physics and functional boarders of the cities; (b) the selection of the indicators that describe the urban areas; (c) the description and quality of life and of environment quality in the cities; (d) the sustainability in urban areas. [Italian] Il lavoro si propone di delineare lo stato dell'arte sul problema degli indicatori e sulla loro capacita' di leggere e prevedere la complessita' urbana. Le elaborazioni teoriche e i suggerimenti metodologici sviluppati nel rapporto tentano dunque di tradurre in protocolli di lavoro i diversi contributi prodotti negli ultimi anni nella letteratura italiana e internazionale concentrando in particolare l'attenzione su quei temi che all'interno dello studio dei sistemi urbani assumono un ruolo chiave: (a) la problematica definizione dei confini amministrativi, fisici e funzionali delle citta'; (b) la selezione degli indicatori che descrivono con piu' efficacia il sistema urbano; (c) le dimensioni e la misura della qualita' della vita e dell'ambiente nelle citta'; (d) la sostenibilita' all'interno dei sistemi urbani.

    Obiettivi: valutare l’appropriatezza organizzativa dei ricoveri effettuati in un Policlinico Universitario attraverso la comparazione di due metodi, dei quali uno basato sui dati della scheda di dimissione ospedaliera ed utilizza, rispettivamente, i sistemi di classificazione iso-gravità APR-DRG e Disease Staging e l’altro sulla revisione delle cartelle cliniche mediante il PRUO.

    Metodi: oggetto di analisi sono i ricoveri ordinari effettuati nell’anno 2001 ed afferenti ai DRG inclusi nella delibera della Giunta Regionale del Lazio 864/2002 che recepisce il D.P.C.M. 29/11/2001 sui livelli essenziali di assistenza.

    Risultati: i risultati evidenziano che le due varianti del
    metodo basato sulla SDO (metodo APPRO mostrano quote di ricoveri inappropriati sovrapponibili rispetto al complesso dei ricoveri oggetto di analisi, ma con differenze anche rilevanti tra APR-DRG e Disease Staging in relazione ai singoli DRG considerati, riconducibili ai diversi algoritmi di attribuzione del livello di severità utilizzati dai due sistemi. L’analisi campionaria effettuata con il metodo PRUO su casi afferenti ai DRG della DGR 864/2002 caratterizzati da livelli di severità minimi evidenzia una proporzione di ricoveri inappropriati superiore a quella determinata tramite i metodi basati sulla SDO. Tale differenza è verosimilmente dovuta al ruolo del valore delle soglie percentuali di accettabilità individuate dalla Regione Lazio per ciascun DRG: le quote di ricoveri che eccedono tali soglie sono considerate inappropriate.

    Conclusioni: sulla base dei risultati ottenuti gli autori
    descrivono gli interventi organizzativi adottati per ottimizzare il contesto di erogazione delle prestazioni

    For nuclear reactor analysis such as the neutron eigenvalue calculations, the time consuming Monte Carlo (MC) simulations can be accelerated by using graphics processing units (GPUs). However, traditional MC methods are often history-based, and their performance on GPUs is affected significantly by the thread divergence problem. In this paper we describe the development of a newly designed event-based vectorized MC algorithm for solving the neutron eigenvalue problem. The code was implemented using NVIDIA's Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA), and tested on a NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPU card. We found that although the vectorized MC algorithm greatly reduces the occurrence of thread divergence thus enhancing the warp execution efficiency, the overall simulation speed is roughly ten times slower than the history-based MC code on GPUs. Profiling results suggest that the slow speed is probably due to the memory access latency caused by the large amount of global memory transactions. Possible solutions to improve the code efficiency are discussed.

    The shuffled complex evolution optimization developed at the University of Arizona (SCE-UA) has been successfully applied in various kinds of scientific and engineering optimization applications, such as hydrological model parameter calibration, for many years. The algorithm possesses good global optimality, convergence stability and robustness. However, benchmark and real-world applications reveal the poor computational efficiency of the SCE-UA. This research aims at the parallelization and acceleration of the SCE-UA method based on powerful heterogeneous computing technology. The parallel SCE-UA is implemented on Intel Xeon multi-core CPU (by using OpenMP and OpenCL) and NVIDIA Tesla many-core GPU (by using OpenCL, CUDA, and OpenACC). The serial and parallel SCE-UA were tested based on the Griewank benchmark function. Comparison results indicate the parallel SCE-UA significantly improves computational efficiency compared to the original serial version. The OpenCL implementation obtains the best overall acceleration results however, with the most complex source code. The parallel SCE-UA has bright prospects to be applied in real-world applications.

    The integration of ordinary differential equations systems (ODEs) is of significant concern to tropospheric and stratospheric chemistry modelers. The solution of the ODEs requires a large computational effort because of their stiff nature; in a three-dimensional photochemical model the solution of the ODEs required at least 70% of the total CPU time. Several numerical integration techniques exist which attempt to provide accurate and computationally efficient solutions. In this work it is presented a comparison of some of the techniques in terms of solution accuracy and required computational time. It has been compared the Hybrid Solver (Young and Boris, 1977), the Quasi Steady-State Approximation method (Hesstvedt et al., 1978) and the Chemical Solver for Ordinary Differential Equations (Aro, 1996), by using the CALGRID photochemical model. The accuracy is evaluated by comparing the results of every method with the solutions obtained by the Livermore Solver for Ordinary Differential Equations (Hindmarsh, 1980). The comparison has been made varing the parameters of the error tolerances, and taking into account the trade-off between solution accuracy and computational efficiency. [Italian] L'integrazione di sistemi di equazioni differenziali ordinarie (ODEs), e' un problema significativo per i modellisti della chimica troposferica e stratosferica. A causa della loro natura stiff la soluzione degli ODEs richiese un notevole sforzo computazionale; in un modello fotochimico tridimensionale la soluzione degli ODEs richiede almeno il 70% del tempo totale di CPU. Esistono diverse tecniche di integrazione numerica che possono fornire soluzioni accurate e computazionalmente efficienti: in questo lavoro presentiamo un confronto fra alcune tecniche in termini di accuratezza della soluzione e tempo computazionale richiesto. Si sono confrontati il Solver Ibrido (Young and Boris, 1977), il metodo Quasi Steady-State Approximation (Hesstvedt et al., 1978) ed il Chemical

    The large growth in the use of cellular telephones has led to an increasing effort, by national and international Research Institutes, in the studies dealing with EM fields' toxicological effects and interaction mechanisms in relation to various biological systems. In order to that, in the labs of ENEA Casaccia - Human and ecosystems protection division, Toxicology and biomedical sciences section - within the research program on biological effects of electromagnetic fields, a new experimental project has been performed; its main subject has been the evaluation of possible in vitro functionality alterations in a stabilized murine macrophages cell line (RAW 264.7), after exposure to 900 MHz EM radiation. Furthermore, the standardization of two different exposure systems, working at 900 MHz in a large power density range (1 to 100 W/m{sup 2}), has bee carried out, in order to ensure homogeneity of electromagnetic field exposure, correct incubation conditions and reproducibility of experiments. Both the standardization procedures and the experimental results, which showed significant differences on cell growth and functionality only with the higher level exposure (100 W/m{sup 2}), with recovery 48 hours after exposure, will be useful to experimental procedures in progress about deepening on in vitro toxicological evaluations. [Italian] Il forte impulso dell'utilizzo di telefoni cellulari ha richiesto, da parte dei principali organi di ricerca nazionali ed internazionali, l'approfondimento degli studi per la valutazione di implicazioni tossicologiche e per lo studio dei meccanismi d'interazione del campo EM con diversi sistemi biologici.

Los autores construyeron un tubo contador cilindrico de 11 l que contiene una serie de conductores de anticoincidencia en torno a un contador central de 2,9 l de volumen efectivo. La seccion de anticoincidencia esta separada del contador central por una delgada hoja de Hostaphan aluminizada. En el trabajo figura una serie de detalles constructivos. El gas que llena el contador consiste en una mezcla de etileno a 30 mm, de argon a 40 mm y la muestra de hidrogeno hasta 700 mm. Un circuito de extincion externo, cuyo tiempo muerto es de 7 ms, elimina eficazmente todos los impulsos demorados. Con un blindaje de hierro de 30 cm, el indice de recuento del contador central con hidrogeno gaseoso inerte es de 350 impulsos/min cuando el circuito de anticoincidencia no funciona y de unos 3 impulsos/min en el caso contrario. Suponiendo que un valor de 1 impulso/min por encima de la actividad de fondo sea significativo, resulta posible medir razones T/H muy pequenas, hasta 10{sup -16}, sin necesidad de proceder a un enriquecimiento isotopico.

Los costos de produccion son mucho menores que para los sistemas electromecanicos. Se ha realizado un estudio de la barra FBCR, incluida la construccion de prototipos y la comprobacion de sus caracteristicas hidraulicas y nucleares. Se'han examinado dos tipos de barra: de transmision (espesor Less-Than-Over-Equal-To 2 recorridos libres medios) y de reflexion. (espesor Less-Than-Over-Equal-To 4 recorridos libres medios). Ambos tipos presentan caracteristicas hidraulicas y nucleares aceptables. Se ha demostrado la posibilidad de regular los reactores de baja potencia mediante barras de control de lecho fluidificado (de transmision o de reflexion). Asimismo, se ha demostrado que la barra FBCR posee satisfactorias propiedades de control, que pueden calcularse por los metodos teoricos normales. Para su aplicacion a reactores de potencia y temperatura elevadas, es necesario adquirir informaciones mas amplias sobre las caracteristicas de los materiales que integran las particulas. Una ventaja que ofrece la barra FBCR es la posibilidad de conformar el flujo axial, utilizando particulas de diferente tamano y capacidad de absorcion o configurando apropiadamente el area de la seccion transversal de dicha barra.

    A method of depositing pyrolytic carbon, which adheres well to a graphite support and is gas-tight, was developed and the physical properties of the deposit were evaluated. The fluidized bed technique was used in applying this method of coating to fissile granules of uranium oxide and uranium carbide. After explaining the conditions for coating the granules, the authors examined their macrostructure, microstructure and permeability. Their behaviour at high temperature was investigated with a view to using them in a reactor.

La asimetria de .la seccion eficaz de dispersion con respecto a la direccion de magnetizacion esta relacionada con la magnitud original de la polarizacion de los positrones. El segundo metodo consistio en dirigir los positrones sobre una lamina de hierro imantada. La seccion eficaz de dispersion positron-electron, o de Bhabha, depende del sentido de la magnetizacion de la lamina de hierro con respecto a la polarizacion de los positrones.

    Full Text Available I grandi eventi sono ritenuti una opportunità per le città in quanto sono uno straordinario catalizzatore di investimenti mirati alla trasformazione della città. L’azione dei grandi eventi non è confinata solo nel periodo di svolgimento dell’evento stesso ma si estende ad un periodo molto più ampio, prima e, soprattutto, dopo il suo termine. Nell’organizzazione delle manifestazioni più recenti le trasformazioni urbane hanno interessato in modo sempre maggiore parti già in precedenza urbanizzate, al punto che l’evento diviene l’occasione per trasformare la città costruita e per modificarne il profilo. Il paper approfondisce l’argomento della classificazione degli eventi e del loro impatto sul sistema urbano sviluppandosi in tre parti. Nella prima si analizzano due tipologie di grandi eventi (le esposizioni internazionali e i giochi olimpici con l’obiettivo di pervenire ad una definizione condivisa. Nella seconda parte si identificano i più importanti fattori ed indicatori per l’analisi di questa specifica categoria di avvenimenti. Infine, nella terza parte, si approfondiscono i fattori connessi all’impatto sul sistema urbano e all’organizzazione della sua mobilità. In particolare, viene approfondito il concetto di “effetto pulsar”, ossia gli effetti moltiplicativi sulla evoluzione urbana dipendenti dalla organizzazione di eventi multipli in parallelo o in sequenza. Uno degli elementi più negativi connessi alla organizzazione di un grande evento è la dispersione nel tempo dei benefici acquisiti grazie ad esso; per evitare ciò è necessario che l’evento sia seguito da politiche strategiche continue in modo da preservare i vantaggi acquisiti.

    The paper gives a general view of techniques and systems related to soil less culture developed in the last years (on substrate in beg; NFT; Ebb-Flood, aeroponic,..) taking into account their management and problems (water quality, control of plant nutrition and irrigation; substrates; pathological aspects,..). The evolution, now in progress, of soil less culture from open to closed system as a way to realized an environmental friendly growing system, is considered. When plants are grown with open cycle techniques a large amount of waste solution, with an a high content of nutrients, are discharged in soil and water. Furthermore, they need an extra-utilization of water and fertilizers. Another aspect is the utilization of low cost substrates, which can be reused for more than one cultural cycle without negative effects on yield, and also finally discharged without negative effects on the environment. The development of soil less culture in countries, such as Italy, where only in the last few years the growers show an increasing attention to these new growing systems, is strongly depending on a improvement of research activities, to obtain growing techniques at low cost, easy to manage, able to give good yield and quality. At the same time very useful is a extensive diffusion of scientific results, joined together with the availability of a technical support for the growers.

    Full Text Available The use of oblique imagery has become a standard for many civil and mapping applications, thanks to the development of airborne digital multi-camera systems, as proposed by many companies. The indisputable virtue of oblique photography lies in its simplicity of interpretation and understanding for inexperienced users allowing their use of oblique images in very different applications, such as building detection and reconstruction, building structural damage classification, road land updating and administration services, etc. We report an overview of the actual oblique commercial systems and the workflow for the automated orientation and dense matching of large image blocks. Perspectives, potentialities, pitfalls and suggestions for achieving satisfactory results are given too.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luca Cossettini

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available With the development of sound production and processing technologies, composers' private rooms stopped delimiting the boundaries of musical creativity, which started inhabiting recording studios instead. Here memory, traditionally entrusted to paper and to the silence of the musical text, met a technology that enabled to record sounds directly, thus achieving the acoustic fulfilment of the composer's thought. The crystalline abstraction of musical notation gave way to a world of sounds submerged in noise as well as in human and technological indeterminacy: it is a world that requires specific control strategies and direct confrontation with performance practices and listening within a complex system. Composers were tossed into this system, becoming performers and active observers of their own work. Thus, the linearity of Shannon’s model of communication was altered. In his works on musical semiology, Jean-Jacques Nattiez had already modified the model from Sender -> Message -> Receiver to Poietic dimension -> Trace <- Esthesic dimension. The rise of the composer as an active observer requires a new transformation of the model of communication, creating a continuous feedback between the different elements.

    Full Text Available Процссс свертывания крови определяется состоянием гемостаза 3 компонентов: тромбоцитов, факторов коагуляции и целостности сосудистой стенки. Если хоть один из компонентов нарушен, то активируется процесс, приводящий к повышенному тромбообразованию. Многочисленные исследования доказали, что при СД обоих типов нарушены все три составляющие, необходимые для сохранения нормального свертывания крови. Тромбоциты при СД характеризуются высокой адгезивностью (способностью прилипать к стенке сосуда и склонностью к агрегации (склеиванию друг с другом. Выраженность агрегации и адгезии тромбоцитов регулируется производными арахидоновой кислоты ? простациклином (PGI2 и тромбоксаном (ТхА2. Простациклин синтезируется эндотелиальными клетками сосудов и является мощным вазодилататором и дезагрегантом. Активированные тромбоциты синтезируют тромбоксан, который вызывает спазм сосудов и стимулирует агрегацию тромбоцитов. Исследования последних 15 лет показали, что при СД отмечается повышение синтеза тромбоксана и снижение продукции простациклина. Помимо количественного снижения секреции PGI2 при СД обнаружена сниженная чувствительность тромбоцитов к воздействию этого фактора. Комбинация этих изменений максимально выражена при тяжелых стадиях сосудистых осложнений СД.

    destinados al reactor de alta temperatura refrigerado por gas de la Brown-Boveri/Krupp Reaktorbau GmbH, se investigaron y desarrollaron dos conceptos de elemento combustible. El elemento consiste en ambos casos en una esfera de grafito de 6 cm de diametro que encierra una pastilla cilindrica de combustible de unos 20 mm de diametro y 16 mm de altura. La diferencia entre ambos conceptos estriba en el tipo de combustible y en la forma de preparar las esferas de grafito. En el primero, el combustible se prepara mezclando U{sub 3}O{sub 8} y grafito, prensando esta mezcla en pastillas y haciendo que ambos componentes reaccionen en un horno al vacio a 1800{sup o}C. La razon atomica U : C es 1:45. Como este tipo de pastilla combustible no retiene cuantitativamente los productos de fision, fue necesario impregnar la esfera de grafito para hacerla impermeable y mejorar su poder de retencion. De este modo, se lograron permeabilidades del orden de 10{sup -6}cm{sup 2}/s . Con arreglo al segundo concepto, el combustible consiste en una solucion solida de UC en ZrC recubierta de una capa de ZrC. La razon molar UC : ZrC asciende a 1 : 20. La pastilla combustible se preparo del modo siguiente: se mezclaron UO{sub 2}, ZrO{sub 2} y grafito y se prensaron en pastillas que se hicieron reaccionar para obtener los carburos, que a su vez se trituraron en un molino de bolas, para volver a prensarse a 2000{sup o}C. De este modo, se alcanzaron densidades superiores al 95% del valor teorico. La memoria describe en detalle la preparacion y algunas de las propiedades fisicas de las pastillas combustibles. Se espera que este tipo de combustible retenga suficientemente los gases de fision y permita el empleo de esferas de grafito no impregnadas. La memoria examina tambien otras ventajas de esos combustibles.

    Managing memory between the CPU and GPU is a major challenge in GPU computing. A programming model, Unified Memory Access (UMA), has been recently introduced by Nvidia to simplify the complexities of memory management while claiming good overall performance. In this paper, we investigate this programming model and evaluate its performance and programming model simplifications based on our experimental results. We find that beyond on-demand data transfers to the CPU, the GPU is also able to request subsets of data it requires on demand. This feature allows UMA to outperform full data transfer methods for certain parallel applications and small data sizes. We also find, however, that for the majority of applications and memory access patterns, the performance overheads associated with UMA are significant, while the simplifications to the programming model restrict flexibility for adding future optimizations.

    Neighborhood denoising filters are powerful techniques in image processing and can effectively enhance the image quality in CT reconstructions. In this study, by taking the bilateral filter and the non-local mean filter as two examples, we discuss their implementations and perform fine-tuning on the targeted GPU architecture. Experimental results show that the straightforward GPU-based neighborhood filters can be further accelerated by pre-fetching. The optimized GPU-accelerated denoising filters are ready for plug-in into reconstruction framework to enable fast denoising without compromising image quality. (orig.)

    Full Text Available The Yang-Mills fields plays important role in the strong interaction, which describes the quark gluon plasma. The non-Abelian gauge theory provides the theoretical background understanding of this topic. The real time evolution of the classical fields is derived by the Hamiltonian for SU(2 gauge field tensor. The microcanonical equations of motion is solved on 3 dimensional lattice and chaotic dynamics was searched by the monodromy matrix. The entropy-energy relation was presented by Kolmogorov-Sinai entropy. We used block Hessenberg reduction to compute the eigenvalues of the current matrix. While the purely CPU based algorithm can handle effectively only a small amount of values, the GPUs provide enough performance to give more computing power to solve the problem.

Une etude analogue a ete faite en utilisant le radioisotope 32 du phosphore. (author) [Spanish] Determinados elementos, como por ejemplo el arsenico, se emplean corrientemente en el laboratorio para fomentar la penetracion del hidrogeno en el hierro. Por otra parte, se ha comprobado en la industria que la presencia de acido sulfhidrico intensifica la corrosion de los aceros por el hidrogeno. Cabia preguntarse si estas sustancias, que hasta ahora se consideraban como catalizadores, solo fomentan la absorcion del hidrogeno, o si ejercen una influencia directa sobre el metal. Los autores han estudiado este fenomeno en su laboratorio con ayuda de hierro electrolitico puro. Han efectuado la sobresaturacion con hidrogeno por carga catodica. Como sustancia de adicion emplearon sulfuro de sodio marcado con azufre-35. Lograron demostrar que en media hora a la temperatura de -15 Degree-Sign C, el azufre penetra en el hierro hasta una profundidad de unas 120 {mu}m. Han podido comprobar ademas que el azufre se localiza preferentemente en los limites intergranulares. Este resultado, que solo pudo obtenerse gracias a los indicadores radiactivos, tiene importantes consecuencias, en especial para la industria del petroleo.

    organise the contentof the teacher education curriculum in order to include and presentmore practical subject knowledge. Besides, the substance and creditsof undergraduate courses need to be reconsidered to fit into the scopeand objectives of Turkish Education department. Eğitim, toplumların geleceğini belirlemede en önemli unsurdur. Eğitim sisteminin en önemli konularının başında ise öğretmen yetiştirme gelmektedir. Öğretmen eğitimi hususunda Türkçe öğretmenlerinin eğitiminin ayrı bir önemi vardır. Bu önem, Türkçenin dinleme/izleme, okuma, konuşma ve yazmadan oluşan temel dil becerilerine dayanmasından ve bu becerilerin hayatın hemen her alanında kişiye gerekli olmasından kaynaklanmaktadır. Nitelikli öğretmenin yetişmesi nitelikli lisans programına bağlıdır. 2012 yılında yapılan değişiklikle ikinci kademe olan ortaokul dört seneye çıkarılmış, beşinci sınıf Türkçe derslerine Türkçe öğretmeni girmeye başlamıştır; ancak lisans programında bir değişiklik yapılmamıştır. Mevcut lisans programına göre Türkçe öğretmeni yetiştirilmeye devam edilmektedir. Eğitim sisteminde yapılan değişiklik, onu oluşturan parçaların tamamında yapılarsa verimli olur. Bu yüzden araştırmanın amacı, yeni eğitim sistemi (4+4+4 değişikliği kapsamında Türkçe öğretmenliği lisans programını incelemek ve bu doğrultuda önerilerde bulunmaktır. Araştırma betimleyici bir çalışma olup veriler doküman incelemesi yöntemiyle toplanmıştır. Araştırmada lisans programı, dil, edebiyat, dil bilimi, Türkçe eğitimi, meslek bilgisi ve genel kültür alanlarına göre analiz edilmiştir. Çalışmanın sonucunda lisans derslerinin alanları açısından yetersiz olduğu, bazı derslerin ise uygun olmadığı belirlenmiş ve buna bağlı olarak yeni dersler ve içerikler önerilmiştir.

The ratification of the Vienna and Paris conventions has contributed to updating the legislation. The participation in international projects related to the use of atomic energy and nuclear safety in particular is revised. Future development of nuclear energy in Bulgaria depends mainly on successful reconstruction, modernization and safety enhancement of the Kozloduy NPP and development of a national grid of technical and consultant firms.

    In the experimental station at Tavazzano from 1993 to 1995 several trials were carried out growing vegetables, cut flowers and ornamental species with soil less culture. Different soil less techniques were utilized (on substrate in begs with open system; NFT, Ebb-Flood, sub irrigation on substrate in pot with closed system). The results obtained till now give the possibility to make some comments about management and problems of the soil less systems. The paper shows aspects related to the management of plant nutrition (nutrient solution, irrigation, substrates)and to fruit or flower production. The environmental effects of the different closed soil less culture systems tested are described, with respect to the cultivation on substrate in beg with open system, still generally utilized.

    The great debate concerning the Italian high-school reform has induced a ferment of activity among the most interested and sensible of people. This was clearly demonstrated by the course 'Innovazione metodologico-didattica e tecnologie informatiche' organized for the staff of the 'lstituto Professionale L. Einaudi' of Lamezia Terme. The course was an interesting opportunity for discussions and interaction between the world of School and computer technology used in the Research field. This three day course included theoretical and practical lessons, showing computer facilities that could be useful for teaching. During the practical lessons some computer tools were presented from the very simple Electronic Sheets to the more complicated information Retrieval on CD-ROM interactive realizations. The main topics will be discussed later. They are: Modelling, Data Base, Integrated Information Systems, Expert Systems, Information Retrieval. (author)

    Full Text Available Many distinguish between financial systems with a dominant role for banks and those with a dominant role for financial markets, assuming this is of great importance for economic development. The author analyses why the distinction might matter, first by investigating how bank and market finance affect economic development. A framework to analyse the financial system is then developed. Finally, a comparative analysis of two so-called bank-oriented countries (Germany and Japan and two so-called market-oriented countries (the UK and the US is performed to reveal whether or not there are fundamental differences between their financial systems. The evidence does not support the idea of a distinction between bank- and market-based financial systems, with all four countries showing unique characteristics.  JEL Codes: G00Keywords: Economic development, Bank finance, Market finance

    Full Text Available The church of Santa Maria in Valle Porclaneta and its accessories are what remains of an ancient Benedictine monastery, built in the heart of Abruzzo region (Magliano dei Marsi, L’Aquila at the end of the XII century. Even if literature, starting from the end of XIX century, has been often interested in this architectural manufactured, the process of historical-critical knowledge of the complex revealed itself difficult due to the absence of archaeological data, the shortage of the documents and, above all, the numerous interventions of restoration that, followed during all last century, have deeply modified the original compages of it. Due to the difficulties met, the overlap between the few documental data and the data derived from the direct investigation of the structures, performed with the aid of an Architectural Informative System, made possible to hypothesize a chronological reconstruction of the principal phases of life of the monastic complex.[it] La chiesa di Santa Maria in Valle Porclaneta e i suoi ambienti accessori sono quanto resta di un antico monastero benedettino, edificato nel cuore del territorio abruzzese (Magliano dei Marsi, L’Aquila sul finire del XII secolo. Sebbene la letteratura, a partire dalla fine dell’Ottocento, si sia spesso occupata di questo manufatto, il processo di conoscenza storico-critica del complesso si è rivelato difficoltoso a causa dell’assenza di dati archeologici, della scarsità di fonti documentarie pervenute, e, soprattutto a causa del susseguirsi di numerosi interventi di restauro che, succedutisi senza soluzione di continuità per tutto il secolo scorso, ne hanno letteralmente stravolto la compagine originale. A fronte delle difficoltà incontrate, la sovrapposizione tra i pochi dati documentali e i dati derivati dall’indagine diretta delle strutture, eseguita con l’ausilio di un Sistema Informativo Architettonico ha consentito di ipotizzare una ricostruzione cronologica delle principali fasi di vita del complesso monastico.

    Full Text Available The work summarises the main literature on the impact of globalisation and of the crisis on banking systems. The main conclusion is that a more compelling approach to financial regulation appears as necessary, though the complete homogenisation of financial systems is not a goal to be sought. The current approaches in the Anglo-Saxon countries, based on the segmentation of banking activities seems a right choice, due to both the political difficulties in enacting a stricter regulation of finance and the practical difficulty of regulating a sector pervaded by financial innovation. However, both the Volcker rule and the British approach of ring-fencing, suffer from two limitations: the risk of transferring even more risk to the shadow banking system, and the difficulty in practice to distinguish between legitimate hedging activities and forbidden speculative activities.

  5. La gestione dei flussi turistici tramite sistemi di trasporto innovativi: l’esempio di Perugia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Leonardo Naldini

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available La città di Perugia ha, fin dagli anni ’70, unito alla sua capacità di attrazione turistica, dovuta al patrimonio storico ambientale plurimillenario, una volontà di affrontare il tema della mobilità urbana in maniera profondamente innovativa ed ambientalmente sostenibile. Il concetto della creazione di parcheggi di attestazione, serviti da percorsi meccanizzati di risalita verso l’acropoli, è stato recentemente ampliato dalla creazione del Minimetro, mezzo di trasporto innovativo, dal ridottissimo impatto ambientale, che unisce in soli 12 minuti, con un servizio semicontinuo, l’area di valle di Pian di Massiano, dotata di un capace parcheggio da circa 2800 posti auto, al centro cittadino, servendo diversi quartieri urbani. Tale sistema di trasporto, corridoio forte del trasporto pubblico urbano, ha fornito lo spunto per attuare una nuova modalità di gestione dei flussi turistici, che individua nel Minimetro la modalità principale di accesso al centro storico sia per i gruppi a numero ridotto, sia per i gruppi organizzati in arrivo con i bus turistici. L’organizzazione della mobilità turistica che ne è derivata costituisce un ulteriore passo in avanti lungo quell’itinerario di gestione della città che cerca di coniugare l’attrattiva turistica, con le sue ricadute in termini di crescita economica, e la salvaguardia del patrimonio storico artistico e della qualità della vita dei cittadini. Gli scenari futuri vedono un’iniezione di tecnologia in questo contesto, con l’introduzione nella gestione dei flussi turistici dei concetti di accreditamento, dell’infomobilità come supporto alle politiche urbane, del controllo unito alla fornitura di servizi georeferenziati.

    2000-06-01

    Full Text Available Health-value adding is the new priority and a watchword for all clinicians and health service workers. The creation of health-value requires a team work involving different actors: A. the clinical staff, whose task consists in the creation of treatment models and in their formalization into guidelines and protocols; B. the managers, since effective clinical and therapeutic practices must go along with coherent organizational models and valuable control instruments; C. the public institutions responsible for the definition of health policy guidelines: among these, a prioritary role is played by funding methods, which can affect significantly the results of health-value adding initiatives. This work aims at studying the relationships between funding methods and health-value creation, with particular reference to mental health services. Particular relevance is given to the funding of mental health departments, with a view to putting aside the shortcomings of the current models and proposing the DRG as an alternative funding method for mental health services. The procedures for patients classification and evaluation envisaged in the psychiatric DRG can assist health service managers in evaluating the outcomes and the patients’ health conditions. In other words, the issues concerning funding and management evaluation will be articulated in the same language: this, in turn, will eliminate the lack of integration which can be presently identified as the main fault of most funding methods, and improve the degree of coherence among resource allocation, activities and results. The case of mental health services can therefore be taken as an example of successful and effective cooperation among management, health policy and clinical staff.

    CERN Document Server

    Jarp, S; Leduc, J; Nowak, A; Pantaleo, F

    2011-01-01

    Data analyses based on maximum likelihood fits are commonly used in the high energy physics community for fitting statistical models to data samples. This technique requires the numerical minimization of the negative log-likelihood function. MINUIT is the most common package used for this purpose in the high energy physics community. The main algorithm in this package, MIGRAD, searches the minimum by using the gradient information. The procedure requires several evaluations of the function, depending on the number of free parameters and their initial values. The whole procedure can be very CPU-time consuming in case of complex functions, with several free parameters, many independent variables and large data samples. Therefore, it becomes particularly important to speed-up the evaluation of the negative log-likelihood function. In this paper we present an algorithm and its implementation which benefits from data vectorization and parallelization (based on OpenMP) and which was also ported to Graphics Processi...

    Many have stressed the limitations of using the shallow shelf and shallow ice approximations when modelling ice streams or surging glaciers. Using a full-stokes approach requires either large amounts of computer power or time and is therefore seldom an option for most glaciologists. Recent advances in graphics card (GPU) technology for high performance computing have proven extremely efficient in accelerating many large scale scientific computations. The general purpose GPU (GPGPU) technology is cheap, has a low power consumption and fits into a normal desktop computer. It could therefore provide a powerful tool for many glaciologists. Our full-stokes ice sheet model implements a Red-Black Gauss-Seidel iterative linear solver to solve the full stokes equations. This technique has proven very effective when applied to the stokes equation in geodynamics problems, and should therefore also preform well in glaciological flow probems. The Gauss-Seidel iterator is known to be robust but several other linear solvers have a much faster convergence. To aid convergence, the solver uses a multigrid approach where values are interpolated and extrapolated between different grid resolutions to minimize the short wavelength errors efficiently. This reduces the iteration count by several orders of magnitude. The run-time is further reduced by using the GPGPU technology where each card has up to 448 cores. Researchers utilizing the GPGPU technique in other areas have reported between 2 - 11 times speedup compared to multicore CPU implementations on similar problems. The goal of these initial investigations into the possible usage of GPGPU technology in glacial modelling is to apply the enhanced resolution of a full-stokes solver to ice streams and surging glaciers. This is a area of growing interest because ice streams are the main drainage conjugates for large ice sheets. It is therefore crucial to understand this streaming behavior and it's impact up-ice.

    We present a CPU–GPU system for runtime acceleration of large molecular simulations using GPU computation and memory swaps. The memory architecture of the GPU can be used both as container for simulation data stored on the graphics card and as floating-point code target, providing an effective means for the manipulation of atomistic or molecular data on the GPU. To fully take advantage of this mechanism, efficient GPU realizations of algorithms used to perform atomistic and molecular simulations are essential. Our system implements a versatile molecular engine, including inter-molecule interactions and orientational variables for performing the Metropolis Monte Carlo (MMC) algorithm, which is one type of Markov chain Monte Carlo. By combining memory objects with floating-point code fragments we have implemented an MMC parallel engine that entirely avoids the communication time of molecular data at runtime. Our runtime acceleration system is a forerunner of a new class of CPU–GPU algorithms exploiting memory concepts combined with threading for avoiding bus bandwidth and communication.

    Kinsner, M; Capson, D; Spence, A

    2010-01-01

    Multi-scale image processing techniques enable extraction of features where the size of a feature is either unknown or changing, but the requirement to process image data at multiple scale levels imposes a substantial computational load. This paper describes the architecture and emerging results from the implementation of a GPGPU-accelerated scale-space feature detection framework for video processing. A discrete scale-space representation is generated for image frames within a video stream, and multi-scale feature detection metrics are applied to detect ridges and Gaussian blobs at video frame rates. A modular structure is adopted, in which common feature extraction tasks such as non-maximum suppression and local extrema search may be reused across a variety of feature detectors. Extraction of ridge and blob features is achieved at faster than 15 frames per second on video sequences from a machine vision system, utilizing an NVIDIA GTX 480 graphics card. By design, the framework is easily extended to additional feature classes through the inclusion of feature metrics to be applied to the scale-space representation, and using common post-processing modules to reduce the required CPU workload. The framework is scalable across multiple and more capable GPUs, and enables previously intractable image processing at video frame rates using commodity computational hardware.

    2010-01-01

    We present an implementation of genetic algorithm (GA) training of feedforward artificial neural networks (ANNs) targeting commodity graphics cards (GPUs). By carefully mapping the problem onto the unique GPU architecture, we achieve order-of-magnitude speedup over a conventional CPU implementation. Furthermore, we show that the speedup is consistent across a wide range of data set sizes, making this implementation ideal for large data sets. This performance boost enables the genetic algorithm to search a larger subset of the solution space, which results in more accurate pattern classification. Finally, we demonstrate this method in the context of the 2009 UC San Diego Data Mining Contest, achieving a world-class lift on a data set of 94682 e-commerce transactions.

    Full Text Available Image processing technology is now widely used in the health area, one example is to help the radiologist to analyze the result of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging, CT Scan and Mammography. Image segmentation is a process which is intended to obtain the objects contained in the image by dividing the image into several areas that have similarity attributes on an object with the aim of facilitating the analysis process. The increasing amount  of patient data and larger image size are new challenges in segmentation process to use time efficiently while still keeping the process quality. Research on the segmentation of medical images have been done but still few that combine with parallel computing. In this research, K-Means clustering on the image of mammography result is implemented using two-way computation which are serial and parallel. The result shows that parallel computing  gives faster average performance execution up to twofold.

    Full Text Available The paper presents a highly efficient way of simulating the dynamic behavior of deformable objects by means of the finite element method (FEM with computations performed on Graphics Processing Units (GPU. The presented implementation reduces bottlenecks related to memory accesses by grouping the necessary data per node pairs, in contrast to the classical way done per element. This strategy reduces the memory access patterns that are not suitable for the GPU memory architecture. Furthermore, the presented implementation takes advantage of the underlying sparse-block-matrix structure, and it has been demonstrated how to avoid potential bottlenecks in the algorithm. To achieve plausible deformational behavior for large local rotations, the objects are modeled by means of a simplified co-rotational FEM formulation.

    We present an implementation of genetic algorithm (GA) training of feedforward artificial neural networks (ANNs) targeting commodity graphics cards (GPUs). By carefully mapping the problem onto the unique GPU architecture, we achieve order-of-magnitude speedup over a conventional CPU implementation. Furthermore, we show that the speedup is consistent across a wide range of data set sizes, making this implementation ideal for large data sets. This performance boost enables the genetic algorithm to search a larger subset of the solution space, which results in more accurate pattern classification. Finally, we demonstrate this method in the context of the 2009 UC San Diego Data Mining Contest, achieving a world-class lift on a data set of 94682 e-commerce transactions.

    A narrow band of neutron wavelengths (4 A and greater) is selected from a collimated neutron beam obtained from the Dido reactor at Harwell. These neutrqps are scattered by various samples and the energy transfer of the scattered neutrons measured using time-of-flight techniques. The neutrons, moderated by a liquid hydrogen source in the reactor pass through first a liquid nitrogen- cooled filter, then a single crystal of bismuth and finally they are ''chopped'' by a magnesium-cadmium high- speed curved slot rotor. In this apparatus the wavelength spread of 0. 3 A at 4 . 1 A is determined primarily by the Be-Bi filter, while the time spread (8 {mu}s) is determined by the rotor. The monochromated neutron bursts from this rotor are scattered by a sample and detected in one of two counter arrays. When studying liquid or polycrystalline samples an array of six BF{sub 3}, counter assemblies (each 2 inches x 24 inches in area)are used covering scatter angles from 20{sup o} to 90{sup o}. This array is placed below the neutron beam. Above the line of the neutron beam is a second array consisting of three scintillators 2 inches in diameter, which is used for the study of single crystal samples. The output of each counter is fed into a tape recording system which has 500 time channels available for each counter. This apparatus has been used to study neutron scattering from several gaseous, liquid and crystalline samples and the most recent measurements are presented in other papers in these proceedings. [French] Les auteurs extraient une bande etroite de neutrons ( 4 A et plus) d'un faisceau collimate de neutrons produits par le reacteur Dido de Harwell. On fait diffuser ces neutrons au moyen de divers echantillons et on mesure le transfert d'energie des neutrons diffuses par la methode du temps de vol. Les neutrons ralentis par de l'hydrogene liquide place dans le reacteur passent d'abord dans un filtre refroidi a l'azote liquide, puis dans un monocristal de bismuth. Finalement, un rotor a rainures courbes en magnesium et cadmium, ayant une vitesse de rotation elevee, les laisse passer par bouffees. Dans cet appareil, le filtre Be-Bi sert a determiner la dispersion de la longueur d'onde (comprise entre 0,3 A et 4,1 A) et le rotor, la dispersion en fonction du temps (8 {mu}s). Les bouffees de neutrons monochromatiques provenant du rotor sont diffusees par un echantillon et detectees dans l'une de deux series de compteurs. Lorsqu'on etudie des echantillons liquides ou polycristallins, on emploie une serie de compteurs BF{sub 3} (dimensions: 2 x 2 4 pouces) couvrant des angles de diffusion variant de 20{sup o} a 90{sup o}. Cette serie est placee en-dessous du faisceau de neutrons. Au-dessus de l'axe du faisceau neutronique se trouve la deuxieme serie comprenant trois scintillateurs (diametre 2 pouces) pour etudier des echantillons de monocristaux. Chaque compteur agit sur un systeme d'enregistrement a bande magnetique qui comporte 500 canaux utilisables pour chacun des compteurs. Les auteurs se sont servis de cet appareil pour etudier la diffusion des neutrons dans plusieurs echantillons gazeux, liquides et cristallins. Dans d'autres memoires presentes au Colloque ils donnent les resultats des dernieres mesures faites.

Estos neutrones son dispersados por varias muestras y la energia por ellos cedida se mide segun el metodo del tiempo de vuelo. Los neutrones, moderados por una fuente de hidrogeno liquido situada en el reactor, atraviesan primero un filtro refrigerado por nitrogeno liquido, seguidamente un monocristal de bismuto, siendo, por ultimo ''interceptados'' por un rotor de ranura curva, de magnesio-cadmio animado de gran velocidad. En este aparato el ensanchamiento de longitud de onda (0, 3A a 4,1 A) queda principalmente determinado por el filtro de Be-Bi, y el de tiempo (8 {mu}s), por el rotor. Las rafagas de neutrales monocromaticos provenientes del rotor son dispersadas por una muestra y detectadas en uno de dos dispositivos de recuento. Cuando se estudian muestras liquidas o policristalinas, se utiliza un dispositivo de seis contadores (de BF{sub 3} de superficie unitaria) de 2 pulgadas por 24 pulgadas para angulos, de dispersion comprendidos entre 20{sup o} y 90{sup o}. Este dispositivo se coloca debajo del haz neutronico. Por encima del eje del haz, se instala otro dispositivo integrado por tres centelleadores de 2 pulgadas de diametro, que se utiliza para estudiar muestras monocristalinas.

    To obtain a high degree of accuracy in determining the specific activity of sources by the absolute counting of particles with a 4{pi} counter, attention must be paid to the preparation of the radioactive sources. At the Mendeleev Institute of Metrology, celluloid films (surface density 8-10 {mu}/cm{sup 2}) coated on both sides with gold (10-15 {mu}g/cm{sup 2} ) or palladium (5-6 {mu}g/cm{sup 2}) are used as the bases of the radioactive sources. In order to reduce the correction for absorption of beta particles in the radioactive deposit, the base is specially treated with insulin. The authors present an extremely sensitive and effective method, employing the electron-capture nuclide {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr), for determining the uniform distribution of the active layer over the entire insulintreated surface. A solution of {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr) salt was applied to the insulin-tteated film, and the source of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) Auger K electrons thus obtained was investigated with the help of a proportional 4{pi} counter. The total number of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) Auger K electrons from the source was 8-12% less than the fluorescence coefficient (calculated from the number of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) K X-quanta emitted by the source) and the number of K electrons absorbed in the film (determined by the 'sandwich' method). From the differences, for insulintreated and untreated {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr) sources, between the calculated and recorded number of Auger electrons it is possible to reach a definite conclusion regarding the quality of the insulin treatment.

    ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment) is conducting a large research and development programme on innovative vehicles with high energy efficiency and low environmental impact. In particular conducts activities on electric and hybrid vehicles. Testing and evaluation activities play a strong role in this programme. A complete characterization chain has been then defined and set up with a network of facilities which covers main testing needs for single components, subsystems and complete vehicles, in simulated and real operating conditions. The test facility which has been realised is able to experiment and fully characterise complete drive-trains (and subsystems) for pure electric and hybrid vehicles. It is composed by a different section for each subsystem: 1) power generation; 2) energy storage and management; 3) driving motors. Each section acts as an experimental island, able to operate alone or jointly with the other sections. In fact, all the sections are remotely controlled and managed in order to create different assembly of the drive-train. The facility has been sized to allow the testing of drive-trains and subsystems of small and medium-sized vehicles (up to minibuses), but an extension to larger vehicles is possible. During 1996 and part of 1997 the Drive train Test Facility has been completed and made operative. This paper mainly presents the final configurations of these novel testing systems with peculiar features and characteristics.

    In this report a detailed analysis is performed of IBM (interacting boson model) version 2, which explicitly introduces the isotopin degree of freedom. The different forms of the IBM-2 Hamiltonian usually considered in the literature, are discussed and explicit relations existing between them are deduced. Moreover, the semiclassical limit of the most general IBM-2 Hamiltonian is studied in details. Because of partial dynamic symmetries, the expectation of chaotic dynamic behaviour near to regular dynamics is shown. [Italian] In questo rapporto viene condotta un'analisi dettagliata del modello IBM nella versione 2 (IBM-2), il quale introduce esplicitamente il grado di liberta' di isopin. In particolare sono discusse le diverse forme dell'hamiltoniana IBM-2 solitamente considerate in letteratura, ricavandone in maniera esplicita le relazioni fra esse esistenti. Viene poi studiato il limite semiclassico dell'hamiltoniana IBM-2 piu' in generale. Si dimostra come, nel modello IBM, siano previsti comportamenti dinamici caotici a fianco di dinamiche regolari ed in particolare come queste persistano molto piu' di quanto ci si attenderebbe a priori per l'esistenza di simmetrie dinamiche parziali.

    Monte Carlo simulation is ideally suited for solving Boltzmann neutron transport equation in inhomogeneous media. However, routine applications require the computation time to be reduced to hours and even minutes in a desktop system. The interest in adopting GPUs for Monte Carlo acceleration is rapidly mounting, fueled partially by the parallelism afforded by the latest GPU technologies and the challenge to perform full-size reactor core analysis on a routine basis. In this study, Monte Carlo codes for a fixed-source neutron transport problem and an eigenvalue/criticality problem were developed for CPU and GPU environments, respectively, to evaluate issues associated with computational speedup afforded by the use of GPUs. The results suggest that a speedup factor of 30 in Monte Carlo radiation transport of neutrons is within reach using the state-of-the-art GPU technologies. However, for the eigenvalue/criticality problem, the speedup was 8.5. In comparison, for a task of voxelizing unstructured mesh geometry that is more parallel in nature, the speedup of 45 was obtained. It was observed that, to date, most attempts to adopt GPUs for Monte Carlo acceleration were based on naïve implementations and have not yielded the level of anticipated gains. Successful implementation of Monte Carlo schemes for GPUs will likely require the development of an entirely new code. Given the prediction that future-generation GPU products will likely bring exponentially improved computing power and performances, innovative hardware and software solutions may make it possible to achieve full-core Monte Carlo calculation within one hour using a desktop computer system in a few years.

  9. Massive parallelization of a 3D finite difference electromagnetic forward solution using domain decomposition methods on multiple CUDA enabled GPUs

    Schultz, A.

    2010-12-01

    3D forward solvers lie at the core of inverse formulations used to image the variation of electrical conductivity within the Earth's interior. This property is associated with variations in temperature, composition, phase, presence of volatiles, and in specific settings, the presence of groundwater, geothermal resources, oil/gas or minerals. The high cost of 3D solutions has been a stumbling block to wider adoption of 3D methods. Parallel algorithms for modeling frequency domain 3D EM problems have not achieved wide scale adoption, with emphasis on fairly coarse grained parallelism using MPI and similar approaches. The communications bandwidth as well as the latency required to send and receive network communication packets is a limiting factor in implementing fine grained parallel strategies, inhibiting wide adoption of these algorithms. Leading Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) companies now produce GPUs with hundreds of GPU processor cores per die. The footprint, in silicon, of the GPU's restricted instruction set is much smaller than the general purpose instruction set required of a CPU. Consequently, the density of processor cores on a GPU can be much greater than on a CPU. GPUs also have local memory, registers and high speed communication with host CPUs, usually through PCIe type interconnects. The extremely low cost and high computational power of GPUs provides the EM geophysics community with an opportunity to achieve fine grained (i.e. massive) parallelization of codes on low cost hardware. The current generation of GPUs (e.g. NVidia Fermi) provides 3 billion transistors per chip die, with nearly 500 processor cores and up to 6 GB of fast (DDR5) GPU memory. This latest generation of GPU supports fast hardware double precision (64 bit) floating point operations of the type required for frequency domain EM forward solutions. Each Fermi GPU board can sustain nearly 1 TFLOP in double precision, and multiple boards can be installed in the host computer system. We describe our ongoing efforts to achieve massive parallelization on a novel hybrid GPU testbed machine currently configured with 12 Intel Westmere Xeon CPU cores (or 24 parallel computational threads) with 96 GB DDR3 system memory, 4 GPU subsystems which in aggregate contain 960 NVidia Tesla GPU cores with 16 GB dedicated DDR3 GPU memory, and a second interleved bank of 4 GPU subsystems containing in aggregate 1792 NVidia Fermi GPU cores with 12 GB dedicated DDR5 GPU memory. We are applying domain decomposition methods to a modified version of Weiss' (2001) 3D frequency domain full physics EM finite difference code, an open source GPL licensed f90 code available for download from www.OpenEM.org. This will be the core of a new hybrid 3D inversion that parallelizes frequencies across CPUs and individual forward solutions across GPUs. We describe progress made in modifying the code to use direct solvers in GPU cores dedicated to each small subdomain, iteratively improving the solution by matching adjacent subdomain boundary solutions, rather than iterative Krylov space sparse solvers as currently applied to the whole domain.

  11. CudaPre3D: An Alternative Preprocessing Algorithm for Accelerating 3D Convex Hull Computation on the GPU

    Full Text Available In the calculating of convex hulls for point sets, a preprocessing procedure that is to filter the input points by discarding non-extreme points is commonly used to improve the computational efficiency. We previously proposed a quite straightforward preprocessing approach for accelerating 2D convex hull computation on the GPU. In this paper, we extend that algorithm to being used in 3D cases. The basic ideas behind these two preprocessing algorithms are similar: first, several groups of extreme points are found according to the original set of input points and several rotated versions of the input set; then, a convex polyhedron is created using the found extreme points; and finally those interior points locating inside the formed convex polyhedron are discarded. Experimental results show that: when employing the proposed preprocessing algorithm, it achieves the speedups of about 4x on average and 5x to 6x in the best cases over the cases where the proposed approach is not used. In addition, more than 95 percent of the input points can be discarded in most experimental tests.

    accionado por este. A fin de lograr un funcionamiento seguro y rapido, asi como una buena estabilidad respecto del tiempo y de la temperatura, se hicieron funcionar a los transistores con una ganancia de carga unidad, ya sea en conmutacion de corriente o en forma lineal como amplificador distribuido. Cada diodo ''tunel'' proporcionaba una ganancia adicional de conmutacion de carga comprendida entre 2 y 5 con la misma estabilidad y paso de banda que los transistores. Cada modulo esta construido para funcionar con una velocidad de contaje de 100 mega-impulsos por segundo. Los elevados ciclos de trabajo del sistema fueron posibles gracias a interconexiones de corriente continua formando los impulsos mediante doble linea de retardo para obtener una rapida recuperacion. Para velocidades de contaje de hasta 50 MHz no se preve ninguna perdida en el rendimiento del sistema. El discriminador basico tiene una sensibilidad graduable comprendida entre 2 y 10 mA con una salida acoplada en continua de 10 mA a potential de tierra. Los tiempos de elevacion y caida de la salida son de un ns; la anchura del impulso se regula mediante cables de retardo; el ciclo de trabajo maximo de salida es de 50% para una recuperacion de entrada del 95%. La inestabilidad en tiempo desde el umbral de activacion hasta tres veces dicho umbral es de 2 ns como maximo. Una version mas perfeccionada tiene una sensibilidad diez veces mayor. Esta dotada de un amplificador distribuido y de una cadena de conmutacion de 2 diodos tunel. Las caracteristicas de salida son identicas. Se examinaran igualmente otros sistemas logicos para discriminadores. La escala de 8 tiene circuitos binarios de diodos tunel. La primera de estas se dispara a traves de diodos ordinarios, lo que constituye una innovacion.

    In this paper the procedures that have been and are currently being used for the determination of micro- microgram quantities of plutonium in biological and environmental samples are reviewed. Special emphasis is placed on excretion analysis. Expected urinary excretion rates have been calculated, using assumed levels of plutonium deposition, so that the analytical sensitivities of various procedures can be compared. Complete dissolution of excreta, soil, bone, tissue and vegetation are described with emphasis on avoiding the formation of refractory compounds of plutonium which are soluble with difficulty. Analytical methods for plutonium analysis of these materials are reviewed and include co-precipitation, liquid-liquid extraction, ion exchange chromatography and the use of plutonium isotopes for yield determinations by means of alpha energy analysis. Using counting statistics, comparisons are made of the sensitivities available in low-level alpha counting, using ionization chambers,- proportional counters, diode counters, and nuclear track emulsions. Isotopic analysis of plutonium by alpha spectrometry, nuclear emulsion techniques, and liquid scintillation counting are included. The use of non-isotopic carriers as a source of extraneous activity and the environmental levels of plutonium recently encountered around the world are discussed in connection with ''blank'' samples. Two possibilities are considered for future methods of plutonium analysis where increased sensitivity is required. These are activation analysis and fission fragment counting. (author) [French] Les auteurs examinent l'ensemble des methodes que l'on a employees et que Ton emploie actuellement pour evaluer les quantites de plutonium de l'ordre du picogramme presentes dans des echantillons biologiques et mesologiques. Ils insistent particulierement sur l'analyse des excreta. Ils ont calcule des taux d'elimination urinaire probables a partir de concentrations de plutonium theoriques, de maniere a pouvoir comparer'la sensibilite de differentes methodes d'analyse. Les auteurs decrivent la dissolution complete d'echantillons d'excreta, de sols, d'os, de tissus et de vegetaux en insistant sur la necessite d'eviter la formation de composes refractaires du plutonium qui sont difficilement solubles. Ils examinent les methodes analytiques employees pour doser le plutonium contenu dans ces substances, notamment la coprecipitation, l'extraction par partage) la chromato- graphie sur echangeurs d'ions et l'emploi d'isotopes du plutonium pour la determination des quantites produites par analyse de l'energie des particules alpha. A l'aide de statistiques du comptage, les auteurs comparent les sensibilites obtenues dans le comptage de particules alpha de faible energie au moyen de chambres d'ionisation, de compteurs proportionnels, de compteurs a diode et d'emulsions nucleaires. L'analyse isotopique du plutonium par spectrometrie alpha, les techniques des emulsions nucleaires et le comptage par scintillateur liquide sont traites dans le memoire.

    The circuit allows unlimited memorization of a positive pulse of any shape, and retains both amplitude and width. Theoretically a rectangular pulse of amplitude A and width t produced as a single pulse when t = 0 can be reproduced in its own area after any time {tau}, so that it may be retained on an oscilloscope synchronized at a repetition frequency {approx_equal} 1/{tau}. The rise form of pulse is not memorized, so that the pulse rise and decay time retained by the oscilloscope are those inherent to the memorizing circuit. Basically the circuit may be considered as being formed by two stretching circuits. These transform the input width from t to t + {tau}. The lengthened pulses of opposite phases are added to obtain at the output a pulse of amplitude A and width t. The delay {tau} is controlled by two monostables triggered at an interval t (delay control circuit) by a saturated amplifier which squares the input and gives two pulses, through a differentiating circuit (delay-measuring circuit). The output pulse is fed back to the input through an attenuator and a delay line. The cycle is repeated with a repetition rate of {approx} l/{tau}. The memorized pulse has a width from 50 {mu}s to over 10 ms. The repetition rate may vary from 10{sup 4} Hz to 30 Hz and less. Another circuit, obtained by using the same principle, is described in the original paper. It can also memorize input pulse shape apart from the amplitude and width. (author) [French] Le circuit permet la memorisation illimitee d'une impulsion positive de n'importe quelle forme; il en conserve a la fois l'amplitude et la largeur. Theoriquement, une impulsion rectangulaire d'une amplitude A et d'une largeur t, produite sous forme d'impulsion unique a un temps t = 0, peut etre reproduite apres un temps {tau}, ce qui permet de la conserver sur un oscilloscope synchronise a une frequence de repetition {approx_equal} 1/{tau}. La forme de la montee de l'impulsion n'etant pas memorisee, les temps de montee et de decroissance retenus par l'oscilloscope sont les temps propres au circuit de memorisation. On peut considerer le circuit comme etant forme essentiellement de deux circuits d'allongement qui transforment la largeur a l'entree de t en t + {tau}. On additionne les impulsions allongees de phases opposees pour obtenir a la sortie, une impulsion d'amplitude A et de largeur t. Le retard {tau} est commande a l'aide de deux circuits monostables, declenches a un intervalle t (circuit de la commande de retard) par un amplificateur sature qui donne a l'impulsion d'entree une forme rectangulaire et emet deux impulsions par l'intermediaire d'un circuit de differentiation (circuit de mesure du retard). L'impulsion de sortie est retransmise a l'entree par un attenuateur et une ligne a retard. Le cycle est repete avec une frequence de repetition de {approx} 1/{tau}. L'impulsion memorisee a une largeur comprise entre 50 {mu}s et 10 ms ou davantage. La frequence de repetition peut varier de 10{sup 4} Hz a 30 Hz et en dessous. Les auteurs decrivent egalement un autre circuit fonde sur le meme principe et capable de memoriser, en plus de l'amplitude et de la largeur, la forme de l'impulsion d'entree. (author) [Spanish] El circuito permite el almacenaje ilimitado de un impulso positivo de cualquier forma, conservando tanto la amplitud como el ancho del impulso. En teoria, un impulso rectangular de amplitud A y anchura t producido como impulso aislado en un tiempo t = 0 puede ser reproducido en su propia area despues de un tiempo cualquiera {tau}, de forma que puede ser retenido en un osciloscopio sincronizado a una frequencia de repeticion {approx_equal} 1/{tau}. El circuito no memoriza la forma de elevacion del impulso, asi que los tiempos de elevacion y de caida del impulso que retiene el osciloscopio son los inherentes al propio circuito memorizador. En esencia, se puede considerar que el circuito esta formado por dos circuitos alargadores que amplian la anchura de entrada desde ra t + {tau}. Se suman los impulsos alargados de fase opuesta y se obtiene asi en la salida un impulso de amplitud A y de anchura t. El retardo {tau} es controlado por dos univibradores disparados a una distancia t (circuito de control del retardo) por un amplificador saturado que transforma en rectangular al impulso de entrada y da dos impulsos por medio de un circuito diferenciador (circuito medidor del retardo). El impulso de salida se pasa de nuevo a la entrada a traves de un atenuador y de una linea de retardo, El ciclo se repite con una frecuencia de {approx} 1/{tau}. El impulso memorizado tiene un ancho de 50 {mu}s a 10 ms y hasta mas. La frecuencia de repeticion puede variar desde 10{sup 4} Hz hasta 30 Hz e incluso menos. Se describe otro circuito basado en el mismo principio y que es capaz de memorizar la configuracion del impulso de entrada ademas de su amplitud y de su anchura.

    The portable scintillated gamma-spectrometer for field measurement of radioactivity in the volume objects was designed. The crystal CdWO{sub 4} that has weak dependence of light yield from temperature in combination with PMT was applied as the gamma-rays detector. The design of the device provides the possibility for measuring radioactivity of the extensive objects in 4{pi}-geometry without background measurements. In this case the value of the efficiency needed for specific activity calculation in close approximation depends only from crystal geometry and density of measuring object and may be set as the device parameter without efficiency calibration procedure during the operation. The spectrometer does not have an auxiliary radio-active source and connecting cables in the composition. The smartphone operated under Windows Mobile is used as the control module. Bluetooth connection provides data exchange between smartphone and measurement head.

    A new type of steel has been developed, containing 0.11-0.20% N and less than 0.05% C, the sum of both components being within the range 0.16-0.26%. The metal has an austenite-martensite structure with 10-30% austenite content. Samples obtained by counter-pressure casting have been investigated with respect to the influence of the thermal treatment on mechanical properties. The best properties are obtained when applying hardening by heating at 1050{sup o} C and cooling at 550{sup o} C: fluidity limit R{sub 0}.2>=850 MPa, relative elongation A>=15%, relative shortening Z>=50%, impact viscosity KCU >= 588 kJ/m{sup 2} at critical temperature of brittleness <-40{sup o} C. These properties are combined with high corrosion and wear resistance and make the steel suitable for steam turbine blades. 5 refs., 2 figs., 4 tabs.

    Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) began work on the irradiation of potatoes in 1956, using spent fuel rods as the radiation source. In 1958 the first Gammacell 220, a self-contained irradiator, was designed and manufactured by AECL, and cobalt-60 was then used exclusively in the food irradiation programme. In 1960 the first food and drug clearance was obtained for potatoes. The next stage was to demonstrate to the potato industry that cobalt-60 was a safe, simple and reliable tool, and that irradiation would inhibit sprouting under field conditions. A mobile irradiator was designed and produced by AECL in 1961 to carry out this pilot-plant programme. The irradiator was mounted on a fully-equipped road trailer and spent the 1961/1962 season irradiating one million pounds of potatoes at various points in Eastern Canada. In 1965 the first commercial food irradiator was designed and built by AECL for Newfield Products, Ltd. Whilst the potato programme was under way, AECL initiated co-operative programmes with Canadian food research laboratories, using additional Gammacells. In 1960, AECL constructed an irradiation facility in a shielded room at its own plant in Ottawa for the irradiation of larger objects, such as sides of pork and stems of bananas. During 1963 the mobile irradiator, already a most useful tool, was made more versatile when its source strength was increased and it was equipped with a product cooling system and van air conditioning. Following these modifications, the unit was employed in California for the irradiation of a wide spectrum of fruits at the United States Department of Agriculture Station in Fresno. The Gammacell, mobile irradiator, shielded-room facility, the commercial food irradiator and some of the main food programmes are described in detail. There is an increasing amount of interest in irradiation by the food industry, and prospects are encouraging for future installations. (author) [French] L'Atomic Energy of Canada Limited'(AECL) a entrepris en 1956 des travaux sur l'irradiation des pommes de terre en utilisant comme source des barreaux de combustible epuise. En 1958, l'AECL a concu et fabrique le premier appareil Gammacell 220, qui est un irradiateur complet, et l'on n'a plus utilise que du cobalt-60 pour l'execution du programme d'irradiation des aliments. En 1960, la premiere autorisation du service de controle des produits alimentaires et pharmaceutiques a ete obtenue pour les pommes de terre. La phase suivante consistait a montrer aux producteurs et distributeurs de pommes de terre que le cobalt-60 est un instrument sans danger, simple et sur, et que l'irradiation entrave la germination. En 1961 l'AECL a concu et fabrique un irradiateur mobile afin d'executer le programme de demonstration. L'irradiateur a ete monte sur une remorque routiere entierement equipee et, au cours de la saison 1961/1962, 500 tonnes de pommes de terre ont ete irradiees en divers endroits du Canada oriental. En 1965, l'AECL a concu et construit le premier irradiateur commercial de denrees alimentaires pour la compagnie Newfield Products Ltd. Pendant l'execution du programme d'irradiation des pommes.de terre, l'AECL a lance des programmes communs avec des laboratoires canadiens de recherche sur les produits alimentaires, en utilisant d'autres appareils Gammacell. En 1960, l'AECL a construit une installation d'irradiation en casemate dans son etablissement d'Ottawa pour l'irradiation d'articles plus volumineux tels que des quartiers de porcs et des regimes de bananes. Au cours de l'annee 1963, l'irradiateur mobile, qui avait deja montre son utilite, a ete modifie en vue d'elargir ses applications: l'intensite de la source a ete augmentee et il a ete equipe d'un dispositif de refroidissement des produits; en outre, la remorque a ete climatisee. Ainsi transforme, il a ete utilise en Californie pour l'irradiation d'une grande variete de fruits a la station du Departement de l'agriculture des Etats-Unis, a Fresno. Le memoire decrit en detail l'appareil Gammacell, l'irradiateur mobile, la casemate, l'irradiateur commercial et quelques-uns des principaux programmes d'irradiation. L'industrie alimentaire s'interesse de plus en plus a l'irradiation et les perspectives sont encourageantes pour les installations futures. (author) [Spanish] En 1956 la Comision de Energia Atomica del Canada (AECL) comenzo sus trabajos sobre irradiacion de patatas utilizando barras de combustible agotado como fuente de radiacion. En 1958 proyecto y construyo su primera fuente tipo Gammacell 220, que es un dispositivo de irradiacion autonomo; entonces, para el programa de irradiacion de alimentos solo se utilizaba cobalto-60. El Servicio de productos alimenticios y farmaceuticos concedio en 1960 su primera autorizacion para la irradiacion de patatas. La etapa siguiente consistio en demostrar a los sectores dedicados a la explotacion de ese tuberculo que la-fuente de cobalto-60 es un instrumento sencillo y seguro, y que la irradiacion impide la germinacion en las condiciones usuales de almacenamiento. En 1961 la AECL diseno y construyo un dispositivo movil de irradiacion para ejecutar este programa experimental. El irradiador se monto en un autorremolque completamente equipado que durante la temporada de 1961-1962 irradio 1000 000 de libras de patatas en varios puntos del Canada oriental. En 1965 la AECL diseno y construyo para la Newfield Products Ltd el primer dispositivo de irradiacion comercial de alimentos. Mientras se ejecutaba el programa de irradiacion de patatas la AECL inicio algunos programas de cooperacion con laboratorios canadienses de investigaciones sobre productos alimenticios, para los que se utilizaron tambien fuentes tipo Gammacell. En 1960 la AECL construyo en su centro de Ottawa una instalacion de irradiacion con camara blindada para irradiar objetos voluminosos tales como piezas de carne de cerdo y mazos de platanos. En 1963, se dieron nuevas posibilidades de empleo al dispositivo movil de irradiacion, ya de por si sumamente util; se aumento la potencia de su fuente y se le doto de un sistema de refrigeracion de productos y de acondicionamiento de aire. Una vez modificado el dispositivo se utilizo en California para irradiar una gran variedad de frutas en la estacion que el Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos tiene en Fresno. En la memoria se describen en detalle la fuente tipo Gammacell, el dispositivo movil de irradiacion, la.instalacion con camara blindada, el dispositivo de irradiacion comercial de alimentos y algunos de los principales programas. El interes de la industria por la irradiacion de alimentos aumenta constantemente y las perspectivas en lo que respecta a nuevas instalaciones de irradiacion son muy alentadoras.

    The paper describes the results of tests on the properties of hydrogen-enriched nuclear-track emulsions for detecting fast neutrons, which were prepared in the Radiological Dosimetry Laboratory of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences Nuclear Research Institute. It also compares the dosimetric characteristics of these new emulsions with those of the gelatin emulsions used up to the present. The most promising of the series of polymers synthesized in the laboratory were: (1) Polyvinylacetal of 2,4-disulphonic acid benzaldehyde (polymer No. 1); (2) The co-polymer of a-acetylaminoacrylic acid and N-vinylpyrrolidone (polymer No. 2). The author also studied the possibility of using polyvinyl alcohol solutions with a higher hydrogen content than the above polymers for saturating polymer-gelatin emulsions and for preparing from them films for use as proton radiators. Polymers No. 1 and No. 2 were tested beforehand in an ammonia emulsion. It was established that polymer No. 1 has no marked effect on the photochemical properties of the emulsions, whereas the physical and mechanical.properties of the polymer-gelatin emulsions are considerably better than those of normal gelatin emulsions. The polymers have good protective properties, and polymer No. 2; can be used even during physical ageing, since it retards this process only to a small extent. The photochemical properties of the polymer-gelatin emulsions remain practically unchanged during natural ageing, and their mechanical strength is still further increased. After these preliminary tests, polymers No.-1 and No. 2 were used as fillers for a nuclear-track emulsion, in quantities ranging from 50 to 70% of the total amount of protective colloid, the silver content of the emulsion remaining unchanged. To increase their efficiency further, the polymer-gelatin emulsions were saturated with hydrogen, which was passed through the liquid emulsion for a short period of time. When prepared, the emulsions were poured on a tri-acetate substrate 190-{mu}m thick, which was an effective proton radiator. The emulsions were irradiated with fast neutrons of fluence 1.56 x 10{sup 8} n/cm{sup 2} from an RaD-Be source. For increased efficiency of neutron detection, supplementary proton radiators such as polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), tri-acetate (T) and polyethylene (PE) of the optimum thickness were used during irradiation of the emulsion. Dosimetric analysis of the results gave the following: (1) The efficiency of detection was increased, in comparison with normal gelatin emulsions, by: (a) up to 25% when using polymers No. 1 and No. 2, depending on the degree of filling, and (b) 100% when polymer No. 1 was used in a hydrogen-saturated emulsion taken as a standard polymer-gelatin emulsion (SPGE), (2) When the optimum supplementary proton radiators (PVA, T, PE) were added to this SPGE, its detection efficiency was further increased to 330%.

    The traditional systems of water depuration are often responsible of undesirable ecological problems. In fact, the oxidation of pollutants due to standard sewage treatments may induce the overproduction of nutrients. Therefore the wastewater effluents may cause the eutrofication of receiving water bodies. To avoid aftereffects on life conditions of aquatic organisms, nutrient retention based on microphytes and macrophytes abilities is often utilized after traditional sewage treatments. As a matter of fact, in many countries the phytodepuration basins or artificial wetlands have been designed to receive primary and/or secondary wastewater effluents or are used directly for depuration of wastewater of small towns and/or effluents of small industries. In this report they take into account the main biological features of the common techniques of natural water depuration.

    The use of wetland macrophytes in systems of treatment of polluted waters is an outstanding example of ecotechnology. Wetland systems are an interface between the aquatic system at risk of being polluted and the terrestrial system which is the source of pollutant substances. They are a cost-effective alternative to more conventional engineered systems to treat potential pollutant substances. They are also a part of the natural hydrological cycle and provide a ready means of making treated wastewater available for reuse. Wetland treatment systems use rooted, water-tolerant plant species and shallow, flooded or saturated soil conditions to provide various types of wastewater treatment. They are very flexible in terms of features, vegetation and performance, but the following basic types can be classified as follows: natural wetlands, constructed surface flow wetlands, constructed subsurface flow wetlands (reed beds). In this paper an outlook of the features and the functioning processes is given.

    The fuel-cell technology applied to engines for vehicular applications grants broad margins of convenience over any known alternative engine for what concerns the compliance with any present and foreseeable environmental and energy saving regulations. On the other hand, the use of hydrogen produced on board from fuels or stored as a liquid or a gas, raises new problems from the point of view of safety regulations and standards both in the design and use of vehicles and in the fuel production and distribution. The present work is aimed at pointing out the above main safety problems, describes the technical-choices together with their technical grounds, in the framework of the italian and U E standards and regulations. The report is then made up of three parts. The initial section where the on board storage of the fuel from technical-economical point of view is discussed. with particular reference to the compressed hydrogen, the second describing the regulations and standards holding in the field of on board pressure equipment and reporting the ongoing ENEA`s activities in the field. The final part is devoted to the distribution and supply of the fuels to the fuel cell powered electric vehicles. [Italiano] La tecnologia delle celle a combustibile, impiegata nella realizzazione dei propulsori dei veicoli elettrici, conferisce ad essi ampi margini di vantaggio su ogni altro tipo di motorizzazione per quanto riguarda le attuali e prevedibili future normative ambientali e di risparmio energetico.

Il rapporto si compone pertanto di tre parti: una parte iniziale dove e` affrontato dal punto di vista tecnico-economico il problema del trasporto del combustibile a bordo con particolare riferimento all`idrogeno compresso, una seconda in cui viene descritta la situazione normativa nel settore dei serbatoi per gas compressi, esponendo poi le attivita` dell`ENEA in proposito. La parte finale e` dedicata ai problemi e possibili linee nella distribuzione e rifornimento del combustibile per i veicoli elettrici a celle a combustibile.

    In assessing the current state of technology relative to high speed (400 to 500 km/h) magnetically levitated (MAGLEV) transportation systems, this paper compares the technical aspects of the two main types of suspension systems now being developed specifically for these transportation systems, i.e., attractive electromagnetic using conventional magnets, and repulsive electrodynamic using superconducting magnets. Commercialization prospects for these systems are reviewed by analyzing areas where high speed levitated trains could compete against conventional rail and air transportation systems. The technology review includes progress reports on research and developments activities taking place in Germany and Japan, as well as, descriptions of some recent applications of this technology.

    Obiettivi: lo studio applica i GIS per l’analisi dei bisogni di salute della popolazione immigrata in età pediatrica regolarmente residente a Roma e per la costruzione di bacini di utenza a livello di Municipio, ASL e Comune rispetto alle corrispondenti strutture di offerta.

    Materiali e Metodi: i dati sono stati acquisiti dall’Ufficio Statistica del Comune di Roma (popolazione in età 0-18 anni residente al 31/12/2002 per Municipio, Distretto e ASL. I dati relativi all’offerta dei servizi per l’infanzia delle ASL sono stati reperiti dalle ASL, dal Comune e dalla Caritas di Roma. I dati sono stati successivamente inseriti, verificati ed analizzati attraverso i programmi Excel e Stata7. L’utilizzo delle applicazioni GIS è stato realizzato attraverso il software Arc-View.

    Risultati: dei 169.064 immigrati presenti al 31/12/2002, quelli in età pediatrica (29.629 sono variabilmente distribuiti rispetto al totale degli immigrati e alla popolazione pediatrica residente.
    Ad esempio, la proporzione immigrati minori/immigrati varia da un minimo del 7,3% in Municipio I, ad un massimo del 20,1% nei Municipi VII e VII (Media: 13.26, I.C.95%: 11.46-15.05.
    L’analisi ha permesso di caratterizzare i bisogni socio-sanitari per Municipio, distretto e ASL. Una valutazione quantitativa della relazione bisogno/offerta è stata realizzata georeferenziando la popolazione immigrata in età pediatrica con le corrispondenti strutture di offerta censite.

    Conclusioni: l’utilizzo dei GIS in epidemiologia e sanità pubblica si presenta sempre più prezioso, per la capacità di sintetizzare, rappresentare efficacemente i fenomeni, suggerire ipotesi di correlazioni tra i fenomeni e indirizzare le decisioni in sanità.
    L’applicazione dei GIS sulla popolazione immigrata in età pediatrica – regolarmente residente a Roma - si è prestata in maniera efficace all’analisi della distribuzione di fenomeni socio-sanitari, riferiti a un territorio assai ampio, quale, ad esempio, l’area di Roma, su cui insistono cinque aziende sanitarie locali (RM A- E, che assistono oltre 2.800.000 residenti.

    Noise pollution is one of the hardest environmental problems connected with railway transport system nowadays. The recent grow of the railways network has caused an increased attention to the acoustic levels along the rail tracks, especially in residential areas. This review aims to supply a synthesis of the issues related to railway noise pollution, including economical, social and medical aspects. Italian legislation about environmental noise and its effect on population is based on the law n. 447/1995 and establishes the fundamental principles on both outdoor and indoor environmental protection from acoustic pollution. Many norms followed this statutory law, trying to cover all areas of the noise related problems. A possible solution to the railway traffic noise mitigation should be based on the reduction of the noise produced by trains (active action on the noise sources) and on the use of acoustic barriers beside the track (passive systems). This work describes noise generation and propagation mechanisms as well as sound attenuation with natural and artificial obstacles. Many screening configurations are described and different materials are compared on the basis of technical (experimental measurements and analytical results), economical and feasibility considerations. [Italian] Il problema della rumorosita' connessa all'esercizio di veicoli ferroviari e' diventato di notevole importanza da quando, col diffondersi dei trasporti di mssa ad alta velocita', e' aumentata la sensibilita' della collettivita' al mantenimento di bassi livelli di inquinamento acustico, soprattutto in zone abitative e residenziali. Il presente lavoro si propone di fornire un quadro sintetico, ma esaustivo, delle problematiche connesse al rumore ferroviario, dalle implicazioni sociali, agli aspetti piu' prettamente tecnici. Viene innanzitutto affrontato il tema della normativa nel campo del fonoinquinamento prodotto da rotabili, con riferimento specifico alla Legge Quadro n. 447 del 26/10/95 e al D.P.R. n. 459 del 18/11/98. Vengono poi trattati, da un punto di vista fenomenologico e di modellizzazione, i meccanismi di generazione e di propagazione del rumore, con particolare riferimento al processo di attenuazione del livello sonoro, ad opera di dispositivi naturali o artificiali. Lo studio di quest'ultimo aspetto rappresenta la parte centrale del presente lavoro: sono state esaminate diverse configurazioni di barriere antirumore artificiali, riportando i risultati sia di sperimentazioni condotte in situ, sia di simulazioni avanzate. Le prestazioni di diverse soluzioni schermanti, caratterizzate da geometrie e materiali differenti, sono state messe a confronto in base a parametri tecnici, economici e di fattibilita'. Infine sulla base delle attuali tecnologie, viene proposta una soluzione progettuale innovativa per la realizzazione di un sistema antirumore efficace e a basso impatto visivo. Essa e' costituita da una barriera fissa, adiacente ai binari e realizzata in plastica riciclata, e da uno schermo mobile, solidale al vagone, in materiale composito. Secondo i criteri di confronto sopra esposti, tale soluzione sembra rispondere alle esigenze di riduzione del fonoinquinamento, basso impatto ambientale e costi contenuti.

    A description is given of water-pressure systems in a number of the largest gas and gas-condensate fields of the Soviet Union, whose industrial reserves exceed 500 billion cubic meters. These include fields located in the concluding stage of development with sharply reduced recovery (Shebelinsk), fields that have just begun to operate and are characterized by increasing production (Vuktyl, Medved, Orenburg, Shatlyk, Urengoisk), and fields that are not yet developed (Yamburg and Zapolyar). Problems in the theory and practice of studying water-pressure systems of the largest gas and gas-condensate fields are analyzed primarily in connection with conditions required for their rational development which would provide for a maximum extraction of hydrocarbons from the interior. Importance is also given to the hydrogeological aspects of the formation of large hydrocarbon deposits and their distribution in the earth's crust. The most reliable factual materials on hydrogeology are utilized. The book is designed for personnel in the gas and oil industries, hydrogeologists, and scientists interested in problems of the formation, survey, and development of the largest hydrocarbon deposits. 92 references, 65 figures, 71 tables.

    Although the concept of floor level air displacement ventilation is not in fact truly innovative given that it has already been tried during the 1980's, this paper shows that the combination of the advantageous natural cooling air circulation dynamics inherent in this method, combined with modern air diffusion equipment, offers interesting opportunities for energy conservation. The thermodynamics/air flow analysis indicates that from 20 to 40% energy savings can be obtained, in addition to reduced ventilation system operating times, with the effective application of low velocity floor level displacement air distribution systems as compared with conventional ventilation systems using the air mixing concept. It is shown how this innovative air cooling/recirculation technique is particularly suitable for conditions characterized by high air infiltration, high heating load and low indoor air pollution.

    Full Text Available The article examines the notions of ‘territorial political system’ and ‘regional geopolitical system' as well as a correlation between them from the viewpoint of the socalled activity-based geospatial approach. A regional geopolitical system includes geopolitical relations between the states within the region and those with powerful external actors. A geopolitical region itself can be characterized by integration, autonomization or a permanent geopolitical conflict. A territorial political system is studied in a broad sense (all political phenomena of a certain territory and in a narrow context (geopolitical relations of a certain territory. The latter is considered to be a subsystem of regional geopolitical system. The research results can be applied in the study of geopolitical regions and geopolitical systems. The article develops a methodology for regional geopolitical and political geographical studies. The author wishes to thank his colleagues from Saint Petersburg State University for their comments on earlier versions.

    The bio-assay laboratory at Trombay carries out nearly 2000 analyses of urine samples annually for different radionuclides. The most abundant isotopes of interest are Th{sup 232}, Th{sup 228}, Ra{sup 226}, Ra{sup 224} and Ra{sup 228}, U natural, fission products and Pu{sup 239}. The others are Co{sup 60}, I{sup 131}, P{sup 32}, Cs{sup 137}, H{sup 3}, Sr{sup 90}, etc. Analyses of a large number of samples containing low levels of activity with speed calls for development of special techniques when high specificity with good yields are desired. Urine presents a very complex matrix with a large amount of complexing organic material as well as variable salt content. Wet ashing procedures are time-consuming and cumbersome where samples of about 1 to 1.5 l are required to be destroyed. The paper presents some very recent methods developed in the laboratory and details of tracer studies involved in the development of these methods. Ra{sup 228}: Measurement of mesothorium in urine is made after separation of Ac{sup 228} grown in equilibrium with it. Radium present in urine is co-precipitated with BaSO{sub 4} and Ac{sup 228} allowed to grow. The precipitate is dissolved in perchloric acid after the addition of Pb, Bi and La carriers. The insoluble sulphates are precipitated with diluted H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}. Ac{sup 2}'2{sup 8} in the supernate is carried on LaF{sub 3} and counted for beta activity and checked for decay. Ra{sup 228} is calculated from observed Ac{sup 228} activity after correcting for decay and chemical recovery. Thorium: The method describes techniques developed for the co-precipitation of thorium with calcium oxalate without wet ashing urine. A study of exact experimental conditions for quantitative precipitation of thorium is reported. The paper also gives tracer experiments carried out for study of interference from phosphates and calcium in the final extraction of thorium with TTA. Thorium-232 is estimated spectrophotometrically and thorium-228 in the separated thorium fraction by separation of Ra{sup 224} after equilibration. . Among other studies reported are the determinations of Cs{sup 137}, P{sup 32}, Co{sup 60} and I{sup 131}. Urine is oxidized by boiling with nitric acid and hydrogen peroxide and proceeded with for the estimation of these elements; Cs{sup 137} is separated by absorption on ammonium phosphomolybdate; a study is made of the different methods for the recovery of Cs{sup 137} from AMP; P{sup 32} is precipitated as MgNH{sub 4}PO{sub 4} in the presence of EDTA as masking agent; Co{sup 60} is recovered as chloro complex by ion exchange techniques; I{sup 131} is separated from urine with silver chloride by bath extraction techniques. The paper reports progress of work in the bio-assay laboratory from 1958 to date. (author) [French] Le laboratoire d'analyses biologiques de Trombay procede chaque annee au dosage de differents radionucleides dans pres de 2000 echantillons d'urine. Parmi les elements interessants, ceux que l'on rencontre le plus frequemment sont le thorium 232 et 228, le radium 226, 224 et 228, l'uranium naturel, les produits de fission et le plutonium 239. Les autres sont le cobalt 60, l'iode 131, le phosphore 32, le cesium 137, le tritium, le strontium 90, etc. Pour analyser rapidement un grand nombre d'echantillons faiblement actifs, il faut mettre au point des techniques speciales si l'on veut une haute specificite et de bons resultats. L'urine constitue une matrice tres complexe, car elle contient une grande quantite de complexants organiques et sa teneur en sels est variable. Lorsqu'il s'agit de detruire des echantillons de 1 a 1, 5 1, les procedes d'incineration par voie humide s'averent longs et difficiles a mettre en oeuvre. Le memoire expose quelques-unes des methodes que le laboratoire a mises au point tout recemment, ainsi que les details d'etudes a l'aide de radio-indicateurs faites pour ces mises au point. {sup 228}Ra: On dose le mesothorium dans l'urine apres avoir separe le {sup 228}Ac forme en equilibre avec lui. On fait coprecipiter le radium present dans l'urine avec BaSO{sub 4} et on laisse se former {sup 228}Ac. Le precipite est dissous dans i'acide perchlorique apres addition d'entraineurs (Pb, Bi et La). Les sulfates insolubles sont precipites avec H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} dilue. {sup 228}Ac surnageant est entraine sur LaF{sub 3} ; on en mesure l'activite beta et en controle la decroissance. D'apres la teneur en {sup 228}Ac observee, que l'on corrige pour tenir compte de la decroissance et de la recuperation chimique, on calcule la teneur en 228Ra. Thorium: Le memoire decrit les methodes que l'on a mises au point pour coprecipiter le thorium avec l'oxalate de calcium, sans incineration de l'urine par voie humide. Il fait etat d'une etude sur les conditions exactes d'experimentation necessaires pour la precipitation quantitative du thorium. Il y est aussi question d'experiences, a l'aide de radioindicateurs, sur l'interference due aux phosphates et au calcium dans l'extraction finale du thorium au moyen de TTA. On mesure le thorium 232 par spectrophotometrie; quant au thorium 228 contenu dans la fraction de thorium separee, on l'estime par separation de {sup 224}Ra apres equilibrage. Au nombre des autres etudes mentionnees figure la determination de {sup 137}Cs, {sup 32}P, {sup 60}Co et {sup 131}I. On oxyde l'urine par ebullition avec de l'acide nitrique et de l'eau oxygenee, et on la traite ensuite en vue de la determination de ces elements.

(author) [Spanish] El laboratorio de analisis biologicos de Trombay efectua anualmente cerca de dos mil analisis de orina para determinar diferentes radionuclidos, siendo los isotopos de mayor interes el {sup 232}Th, {sup 228}Th, {sup 226}Ra, {sup 224}Ra, {sup 228}Ra, U natural, productos de fision y {sup 239}Pu, asip como el {sup 60}Co, {sup 32}P, {sup 131}I, {sup 32}P, {sup 137}Cs, {sup 3}H, {sup 90}Sr, etc. El analisis rapido de un gran numero de muestras de baja actividad exige el perfeccionamiento de tecnicas especiales, sobre todo cuando se desea un alto grado de especificidad, unido a un elevado rendimiento. La' orina presenta una matriz muy complicada, con una elevada proporcion de sustancias organicas complejantes y contenido variable de sales. Los procedimientos de calcinacion por via humeda exigen un tiempo considerable y resultan engorrosos cuando se han de destruir muestras de aproximadamente 1 a 1,5 l. El trabajo deseribe algunos metodos recientemente desarrollados en el laboratorio de los autores y proporciona detalles de estudios sobre indicadores que han intervenido en el desarrollo de aquellos metodos. Radio-228: Se mide el mesotorio contenido en la orina despues de separar el {sup 228}Ac en equilibrio radiactivo. El radio presente en la orina se coprecipita con BaSO{sub 4}, teniendose en cuenta que sigue formandose {sup 228}Ac. El precipitado se disuelve en acido perclorico despues de anadir como portadores Pb, Bi y La. Los sulfatos insolubles se precipitan con H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} diluido y el {sup 228}Ac que permanece en solucion, despues de ser arrastrado con F{sub 3}La, se somete a recuento de actividad beta y se comprueba la disminucion de actividad. La cantidad de {sup 228}Ra se calcula a partir de la actividad observada en el {sup 228}Ac despues de introducir la oportuna correccion para tener en cuenta la desintegracion y el rendimiento de la recuperacion quimica. Torio: El trabajo describe la tecnica puesta a punto para la coprecipitacion del torio con oxalato calcico sin necesidad de calcinacion por via humeda de la orina e informa acerca de un estudio de las condiciones experimentales correctas para la precipitacion cuantitativa del torio. El trabajo menciona asimismo experimentos con indicadores llevados a cabo para estudiar las interferencias causadas por los fosfatos y el calcio en la extraccion final del torio con tenoiltrifiuoroacetona. La valoracion del torio-232 se efectua por espectrofotometria y la del torio-228 - en la fraccion del torio remanente- por separacion del {sup 224}Ra despues de alcanzar el equilibrio. Otros estudios citados en la memoria incluyen la determinacion del {sup 137}Cs, {sup 32}P, {sup 60}Co y {sup 131}I. La orina se oxida hirviendola con acido nitrico y peroxido de hidrogeno antes de proceder a la valoracion de estos elementos. El {sup 137}Cs se separa por absorcion en fosfomolibdato amonico y se realiza un estudio de los diferentes metodos para la recuperacion de aquel elemento del fosfomolibdato amonico. E 1{sup 32}P se precipita bajo forma de MgNH{sub 4}PO{sub 4} en presencia de etilendiaminotetraacetato como agente de quelacion. El {sup 60}Co se recupera como cloro-complejo por medio de tecnicas de intercambio ionico y el {sup 131}I se separa de la orina con cloruro de plata mediante tecnicas de extraccion discontinua.

    To investigate the different problems in radiation biophysics and radiation biology the necessity to develop equipment with a very high output of X-rays became evident at the beginning of the 1940's. This equipment made it possible to produce much higher dose-rates than the technical constructions which existed at that time. Such equipment was developed between 1950-1953 by the author and collaborators at the Max Planck Institut fur Biophysik and has been in use since then for scientific research. It later became clear that these X-ray machines are also very suitable for the sterilization and disinfection of drugs, food and other materials. At the Max Planck Institut fur Biophysik three types of equipment are used. With the construction of the AEG X-ray equipment of 120 kV and 500 mA, the industrial technique has been adopted and gradually implemented. The equipment constructed by the author and collaborators had three different types of X-ray tubes which can be connected with a high-voltage transformer of 240 kVA. These tubes run continuously, or for a short time, with a tube current of 2A and a voltage of up to 100 kV. The radiation dose-rate amounts to 10{sup 7} R/min. These tubes permit irradiation with continuous conveyance of a great amount of irradiation material. The corresponding industrial equipment constructed up to now is described. (author) [French] Pour etudier les problemes de radiobiophysique et de radiobiologie, on a constate, des le debut des annees 40, la necessite de mettre au point des appareils a rayons X tres intenses. Ces appareils devaient permettre d'obtenir des debits de dose beaucoup plus eleves qu'avec les installations existantes. De telles machines ont ete mises au point en 1950-1953 par l'auteur et ses collaborateurs a l'Institut Max Planck de biophysique et sont utilisees depuis lors pour la recherche scientifique. Par la suite, on a constate que ces generateurs de rayons X conviennent egalement tres bien pour la sterilisation et l'aseptisation des medicaments, des denrees alimentaires et d'autres matieres. A l'Institut Max Planck de biophysique,on utilise trois types de radiogenerateurs. La construction par la societe AEG de generateurs de rayons X de 120 kV et 500 mA a amene la technique industrielle a adopter ces caracteristiques et a realiser graduellement ce materiel. Les appareils construits par l'auteur et ses collaborateurs sont munis de trois types differents de tubes a rayons X qui peuvent etre alimentes par un transformateur a haute tension de 240 kVA. Ces tubes peuvent fonctionner continuellement ou pendant un court laps de temps sous un courant de 2A. et 100 kV. Le debit de dose du rayonnement atteint 10{sup 7} R/min. Ces tubes permettent l'irradiation d'une grande quantite de produits sur un convoyeur a mouvement continu. Les appareils industriels correspondants realises jusqu'a present sont decrits par l'auteur. (author) [Spanish] La necesidad de construir aparatos de rayos X de gran potencia para investigar diferentes problemas de radiobiofisica y radiobiologia comenzo a hacerse patente a partir de 1940. Estos aparatos permiten administrar dosis mucho mas elevadas que los modelos entonces existentes. Fueron ideados y perfeccionados entre 1951 y 1953 por el autor y sus colaboradores del Max Planck Institut fiir Biophysik, y se vienen utilizando desde entonces para investigaciones cientificas. Ulteriormente se advirtio que se prestan muy bien para esterilizar y desinfectar productos farmaceuticos, alimentos y otras sustancias. En dicho Instituto se utilizan tres tipos de estos aparatos. Con la construccion del aparato de rayos X AEG para 120 kV y 500 mA, la tecnica industrial ha adoptado esas ideas y las esta poniendo en practica gradualmente. Los aparatos construidos por el autor y sus colaboradores estan provistos de tres tipos diferentes de tubos de rayos X que pueden conectarse con un transformador de alta tension de 240 kVA. Estos tubos funcionan continuamente o durante breves intervalos con una intensidad de 2 A y una tension de 100 kV como maximo. La.dosis de irradiacion asciende a 10{sup 7} R/min. Utilizando una cinta transportadora continua ios tubos permiten irradiar una gran cantidad de material. Se describe el correspondiente equipo industrial realizado hasta la fecha.

    Reasonably complete knowledge of the phonon dispersion curves for at least a dozen metallic elements and intermetallic compounds has now been obtained from neutron inelastic scattering experiments. The results have one feature in common: when analysed in terms of interatomic force constants they reveal the presence of comparatively long-range forces extending over several atomic spacings. The results for lead are particularly interesting; it did not prove possible to fit them by a force-constant model, but the dispersion curves for wave vectors in symmetry directions when analysed in terms of force constants between planes of atoms showed an oscillatory interatomic potential extending over distances of more than 20A. This review is concerned with recent theoretical work which has a bearing on the calculation of phonon dispersion curves for metals and the explanation of the long range of the interatomic potential. The best hope at present for a general treatment of atomic interaction in metals appears to lie in the ''method of neutral pseudo-atoms'', (a description recently coined by Ziman). This approximate theory is outlined and its relevance to Kohn anomalies in phonon dispersion curves is discussed. Experimental data for sodium is consistent with the theory, and the interatomic potential in sodium varies periodically in a distance {pi}/k{sub F}, where fik{sub F} is the Fermi momentum, as has already been demonstrated by Koenig in a different way. More exact calculations have been made for sodium by Toya and by Sham. The relationship between the different methods and other work of a more general character such as that of Harrison are discussed. (author) [French] A la suite d'experiences de dispersion inelastique des neutrons, on a maintenant une connaissance assez complete des courbes de dispersion des phonons pour une douzaine de metaux et de composes intermetalliques au moins. Les resultats presentent le caractere commun suivant: si on les analyse en fonction des constantes de forces interatomiques, ils revelent la presence de forces de portee relativement longue (plusieurs espaces atomiques). Les resultats relatifs au plomb sont particulierement interessants; il n'a pas ete possible de les ajuster au moyen d'un modele de constantes de forces, mais les courbes de dispersion pour les vecteurs d*ondes dans des directions de symetrie, analysees en fonction des constantes de forces entre plans d'atomes, accusent un potentiel interatomique oscillatoire qui s'etend sur des distances de plus de 20 A. L'auteur fait le point des travaux theoriques recents qui ont des incidences sur le calcul des courbes de dispersion des phonons pour des metaux, et tente d'expliquer la longue portee du potentiel interatomique. Il semble qu'actuellement ce soit la 'methode des pseudo-atomes neutres' (expression forgee recemment par Ziman) qui offre les meilleures chances de permettre un traitement general de l'interaction atomique dans des metaux. L'auteur donne un apercu de cette theorie et discute son importance du point de vue des anomalies de Kohn dans les courbes de dispersion des phonons. Les donnees experimentales pour le sodium sont en accord avec cette theorie et le potentiel interatomique dans le sodium varie periodiquement sur une distance {pi}/k{sub F}, hk{sub F} etant le moment de Fermi, ainsi que Koenig l'avait deja demontre d'une autre facon. Des calculs plus exacts ont ete effectues pour le sodium par Toya et par Sham. Le memoire examine les relations entre les differentes methodes, ainsi que d'autres travaux d'un caractere plus general, tels que ceux d'Harrison. (author) [Spanish] Los experimentos de dispersion inelastica de neutrones han permitido acopiar datos bastadte completos sobre las curvas de dispersion fononica correspondientes a una docena, por lo menos, de elementos metalicos y de compuestos intermetalicos. Los resultados presentan una caracteristica comun: analizados en funcion de las constantes de fuerzas interatomicas, manifiestan la presencia de fuerzas de alcance relativamente grande, que se extienden a varios espacios interatomicos. Los resultados relativos al plomo son particularmente interesantes; no fue posible ajustarlos a un modelo de constantes de fuerza, pero las curvas de dispersion de los vectores de onda en las direcciones de simetria, analizadas en funcion de las constantes de fuerza entre planos atomicos, revelan la existencia de un potencial interatomico de caracter oscilatorio que se extiende a distancias superiores a 20A. La memoria trata de trabajos teoricos recientes, relacionados con el calculo de las curvas de dispersion fononica en metales y con la explicacion del largo alcance del potencial interatomico. En la actualidad, el metodo mas prometedor para abordar con criterio general la interaccion atomica en los metales parece ser el de los 'pseudoatomos neutros ', denominacion recientemente acunada por Ziman. Se exponen los principios de esta teoria de Aproximacion y se examina su relacion con las anomalias de Kohn en las curvas de dispersion fononica. En el caso del sodio, los valores experimentales concuerdan con los datos teoricos, y el potencial interatomico varia periodicamente en la distancia {pi}/k{sub F}, donde hk{sub F} es el momento de Fermi, como ha demostrado Koenig por un procedimiento diferente. Toya y Sham han realizado calculos mas exactos para el sodio; se examinan las relaciones existentes entre los diferentes metodos y otros trabajos de indole mas general, tales como los de Harrison.

    A three-axis neutron diffraction spectrometer at the Los Alamos Omega West Reactor has been used to measure the dispersion curves for phonons propagating in the [100] and [111] directions in diamond. All measurements were made at room temperature. The sample was a type Ha brown industrial diamond weighing 242.8 carats (48.56 g). A neutron diffraction study showed it to consist of a large single crystal with a mosaic spread of - 1 Degree-Sign full width at half maximum, plus two small regions misoriented by 3 and 5 Degree-Sign . The spectrometer was programmed for ''constant-Q'' operation. In all cases, the energy of the incident neutrons was fixed and the scattered neutrons lost energy. Sufficient intensity at an incident energy high enough to excite the optical modes of diamond was obtained by the use of the (1122) reflection of a beryllium monochromator. Uncertainties in the measured frequencies are estimated to be of the order of 2-3%. The most striking result of these measurements is the verification of the predictions, based on infrared absorption and specific heat data, that diamond is not homologous to silicon and germanium. The lack of homology is manifested principally in the behaviour of the transverse branches. The transverse acoustic branches are relatively much higher in diamond than in silicon and germanium. The transverse optical branches are relatively lower, so that in diamond the highest branch is the longitudinal optical rather than the transverse optical. Frequencies at the zone boundaries are in reasonable agreement with those predicted from infrared absorption data, although the identification of the polarizations is different. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont utilise un spectrometre triaxial pour la diffraction des neutrons produits par le reacteur Omega West de Los Alamos en vue de determiner plusieurs courbes de dispersion des phonons se deplacant dans des directions de symetrie a l'interieur du, diamant. Toutes les mesures ont ete effectuees a la temperature ambiante. Il s'agissait d'un diamant industriel brun du type lla, de 242,8 carats (48.56 grammes). D'apres une etude par diffraction des neutrons, cet echantillon etait constitue par un grand monocristal a dispersion mosaieque atteignant une largeur maximum d'environ Ie a mi-hauteur du pic, plus deux petites regions deviees de 3 a 5 Degree-Sign . Le programme du spectrometre etait etabli pour 'Q constant'. Dans tous les cas, l'energie des neutrons incidents etait fixe et les neutrons diffuses ont perdu de l'energie. Pour une energie des neutrons incidents assez elevee pour exciter les modes optiques du diamant, on a obtenu une intensite suffisante grace a la reflexion (1122) d'un systeme mono- chromateur de beryllium. Parmi les 'difficultes soulevees par l'experience, independamment de celles qui resultent des frequences tres elevees des phonons dans le diamant, il faut citer l'existence de pics anormaux qui a rendu difficile l'identification des polarisations. On estime que l'imprecision des mesures des frequences est de Tordre de 2 a 3%. Le resultat le plus frappant de ces mesures a ete la confirmation des previsions, fondees sur les donnees relatives a l'absorption daos l'infrarouge et a la chaleur specifique, que le diamant n'est pas homologue du silicium et du germanium. Ce manque d*homologie se manifeste principalement dans le comportement des branches acoustiques transversales, dont la frequence exprimee en unites convenablement reduites est pres de deux fois plus elevee dans le diamant que dans le silicium ou le germanium. Les autres courbes de dis* persion pour le diamant sont assez semblables a celles que l'on observe pour le silicium et le germanium. Ces resultats indiquent peut-etre que les effets de la 'polarisabilite'atomique, qui ont une grande importance dans le cas du silicium et du germanium, en ont moins dans le cas du diamant. (author) [Spanish] Los autores han utilizado un espectrometro triaxial de difraccion neutronica en el reactor Omega West de Los Alamos para medir varias curvas de dispersion de los fonones que se propagan en el diamante siguiendo direcciones de simetria. Todas las mediciones se realizaron a la temperatura ambiente. La muestra consistio en un diamante industrial pardo del tipo lia, de 242,8 quilates (48,56 g). Su estudio por difraccion neutronica revelo que estaba constituido por un monocristal de gran tamano con una dispersion mosaica de un ancho total a la semialtura de Tilde-Operator 1 Degree-Sign , mas dos pequenas zonas desviadas en 3-5 Degree-Sign . La utilizacion del espectrometro se programo para el metodo de 'Q constante'. En todos los casos se fijo la energia de los neutrones incidentes y los neutrones dispersos perdieron energia. Por empleo de la reflexion (1122) de un monocromador de berilio se obtuvo una intensidad suficiente a una energia incidente bastante elevada como para excitar los modos opticos del diamante. Entre las dificultades experimentales, ademas de las debidas a las frecuencias muy altas de los fonones en el diamante, figuro la aparicion de picos anomalos, lo que obstaculizo la identificacion de las polarizaciones. Se calculo que el margen de error en la medicion de las frecuencias era del orden de 2-3%. El resultado mas notable de estas mediciones lo constituye la confirmacion de las previsiones, basadas en la absorcion infrarroja y en datos acerca del calor especifico, de que el diamante no es un homologo del silicio ni del germanio. Esa falta de homologia se manifiesta principalmente en el comportamiento de las ramas acusticas transversales, las cuales, cuando se expresan en unidades debidamente reducidas, presentan una frecuencia que es casi doble en el diamante que en el silicio o el germanio. El resto de las curvas de dispersion observadas para el diamante se asemeja bastante a las del silicio y germanio. Estos resultados parecen indicar que los efectos de la polarizabilidad atomica, que tanta importancia revisten en los dos elementos recien mencionados, la tienen menos en el caso del diamante.

    The scanner described was built to explore potential advantages of modifying the motion of the radiation detector over the patient. In the study of a round organ, such as the liver, a cylindrical scanning motion is used to expose more of the organ to survey. Another modification is section scanning which permits the separation of images of radioactive structures according to specific planes in body depth. This mode of scanning can be of particular use when images of body structures overlap in the recording and are confusing. During scanning the patient is supported on a cantilever platform between two opposed scintillation detectors mounted at the extremities of a yoke. The yoke is powered to provide three motions of the detectors about the patient: longitudinal, transverse, and rotary. Particular attention has been paid to the precise control of detector position and speed by incorporating servo-mechanical control mechanisms. The recording system includes: (1) Non-destructive data storage on punched paper tape; (2) provision for rapid regeneration of scanning images on a cathode-ray oscilloscope-, and (3) facility for electronic operations on the image signal. Examples of the clinical applications of this instrument are described, with particular emphasis on cylindrical scanning of the liver and section scanning of the brain. (author) [French] Le dispositif decrit dans le memoire a ete construit en vue d'etudier les avantages qui pourraient resulter de la modification du deplacement du detecteur de rayonnement au-dessus du patient. Dans l'etude d'un organe a peu pres rond tel que le foie, on procede a l'exploration par un mouvement en spirale afin d'examiner une plus grande portion de l'organe. On peut egalement faire une exploration par 'tranches' , qui permet de separer les images des structures radioactives dans des plans determines en profondeur. Ce mode d'exploration peut se reveler particulierement utile lorsque les images des diverses structures se superposent sur le scintigramme, qui est alors difficile a interpreter. Au cours de l'exploration, le patient est installe sur un lit cantilever entre deux detecteurs a scintillation montes aux extremites d'un.support qui se deplace de maniere a permettre le mouvement des detecteurs en trois sens: longitudinal, transversal et rotatoire.

Otra modificacion consiste en la exploracion por secciones, que permite separar imagenes de estructuras radiativas en planos situados a diversas profundidades del organismo. Este procedimiento tiene particular interes cuando las imagenes de las diversas estructuras corporales se superponen en el registro dando resultados dificiles de interpretar. Durante la exploracion, el paciente se encuentra sobre una camilla sujeta por uno de sus extremos y situada entre dos detectores de centelleo montados en las extremidades de una pieza en forma de yugo capaz de desplazarse'en direccion longitudinal y transversal y de describir un movimiento giratorio. Se ha prestado particular atencion a la posibilidad de regular exactamente la posicion y la velocidad del detector y, para ello, se han instalado servomecanismos de control.

    Using the pulsed fut reactor in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, an installation was set up to investigate the spectrometry of cold neutrons. The moderator, adjoining the reactor reflector, and the beryllium filter were at the temperature of liquid nitrogen. The scatterer, located at a distance of about 0. 6 m from the moderator, was irradiated by flashes of cold neutrons, whose duration was determined by the lifetime of the neutrons in the moderator and the dispersion of the times-of-flight over a distance of 0. 6 m. The frequency of the flashes was 8/s. The steep beryllium edge of the spectrum, lying around 200 {mu}s, was used for spectrometry in the quasi-elastic range. The energy of the scattered neutrons was determined by the time-of-flight over the distance between scatterer and detector, which was about 10-40 m. ZnS + 10{sub 2}{sup 10} O{sub 3} scintillation detectors with surfaces of 300 and 2 000 cm{sup 2} were used and the efficiency, for fast neutrons, was about 60%.

    The Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions, JINR, Dubna, is engaged in the development and creation of new cyclotrons. In the initial phase of development it is necessary in a relatively short period of time to analyze several variants for their magnetic structures. The paper deals with the software application CyclSyntWin developed at the Laboratory, which allows one to pre-analyze several variants and determine the basic physical and geometrical parameters of the magnetic structure and the cyclotron magnet. In this way, the data can then be used in the 3D software applications, which greatly speeds up the process of the final synthesis of the magnetic structure and a cyclotron magnet. Software application CyclSyntWin can synthesize and optimize the magnetic structures of cyclotrons with straight and spiral sectors, close to azimuthally symmetric ones. The ratio of the air gaps in the valley and in the sectors area should not exceed 25, the angle of the spiral sector shall not be greater than 40 degrees, and the average magnetic field is no more than 2 T [Russian] Лаборатория ядерных реакций ОИЯИ (Дубна) занимается разработкой и созданием новых циклотронов. В начальной фазе таких разработок необходимо за относительно короткое время проанализировать несколько вариантов их магнитных структур. В работе рассматривается разработанное в лаборатории программное приложение CyclSyntWin, которое позволяет предварительно проанализировать несколько вариантов и определить основные физические и геометрические параметры магнитной структуры, а также самого магнита циклотрона. Таким способом полученные данные могут быть в дальнейшем использованы в 3D-программных приложениях, что существенно ускоряет процесс финального синтеза магнитной структуры и магнита циклотрона. Программным приложением CyclSyntWin можно синтезировать и оптимизировать магнитные структуры циклотронов с прямыми и спиральными секторами, близкие азимутально-симметричным. Отношение их воздушных зазоров в долине и в районе секторов не должно превышать значения 25, угол спиральных секторов не должен быть больше 40° и среднее магнитное поле не более 2 Тл.

    Full Text Available This article studies the process of transformation of the Swedish political party system in the 1980s. The study aims to develop a typology of the Swedish political party system before and after the transformation processes commenced. The article identifies the key prerequisites for such transformation: the crisis of social democracy and an increase in the nationalist attitudes in the society caused by the negative repercussions of the system of integration of migrants into the society based on the multiculturalism principles. The interethnic tension manifested itself in the wide support for the Swedish Democrats Party in the 2010 parliamentary election. From a political party system dominated by social democrats, the Swedish political party system turned into one with two leading parties – the centre-left Swedish Social Democratic Labour Party and the centre-right Moderate Party. The Swedish Democrats position themselves as an alternative to the two party blocs headed by the dominating parties (the Alliance and the Red-Green. The study employs an interdisciplinary approach in the framework of science synthesis. Its results can be of practical significance for politicians, social activists, and academicians.

  14. Polyarnye siyaniya sistemy avroral'nogo ovala kak kosmoloficheskij obraz drevnej mifologii %t The northern light of the auroral oval system as a cosmological concept of the archaic mythology

    Science.gov (United States)

    Alekseeva, L. M.

    Since archaic epochs people attentively observe the sky. They used to associate the sky phenomena with gods, heroes, spirits, etc. People interpreted the regularities in the motion of celestial objects in terms of their mythological model of the Universe. These observations and interpretations were first steps of the archaeoastronomy. Many remarkable features are inherent in the patterns of northern lights of the auroral oval system. Their manifestations are fairly regular. Did the ancients observe and some how classify these northern light phenomena? If yes, with which mythological personages were they associated? When were studies of the polar lights initiated? The present work is an attempt to answer these questions. We shall see that the ancient people assumed the spirit-world to be situated on the North. If so, it should manifest itself in spectacular polar aurorae. The specifically northern mythic cosmology formed the basis for Slavic fairy tales (theme of the Serpent and Serpent Fighter) and folk-beliefs. Other inhabitants of snowy latitudes should also manifest similar views. Studying the mythological reflections of typical auroral phenomena, it is possible to trace up long-standing ideological trends from the late glaciation epoch to the present time. Our results can help geophysicists in studying paleoauroral phenomena.

    The most important aspects of environmental geology, related to the urban syatems are analysed in this paper; the term urban system is here preferred to urban environment, since the second one refers to a part of a complex system, that comprises social, economic, etc. environments. All the possible environmental impacts have been described to evaluate how the urban system is affected by the environmental geological components. They are subdivided into urban impacts on the environment and environmental impacts on the cities. The environmental changes induced by: quarries, natural surfaces waterproofing, drained marshes, subways for transportation networks, bridges and gully-holes, topography changes, natural hollows filling up and ground piles, loss of the natural conditions for river beds, loss of soils, falls in piezometry and connected subsistence phenomena, are classified into the firdt type of impacts, also defined as anthropic risks. The pollution of soils, surface waters (marine and fluvial), groundwater and the impact of watse management and their restorage were also dealth with. The geological risks have also been analyzed as pressure factors from the environmenton the cities. They are generally interrelated and in some cases added up. The main instruments to help monitor and manage the environment are also described. They are monitoring networks that constitute a part of the Informative Environmental Systems. A great relevance is given to the indicators and indexes of the environmental quality, either for the measurement of the quality of life that for the measurement of environmental sustainability of cities. The scientific use of such indicators and indexes is presently a subject of debate world-wide. The authors consider is correct to delineate concise indexes, obtained from state indicators for the quality of life. They are represented by the umber of days/per year in which a service was suspended, or the environment didn`t present the characteristics requested by law. On the contrary it is possible to definite concise environmental indexes for environmental sustainable cities. This because just a few indicators cannot provide a satisfactorily scientific view of the complex environments in the cities. Furthermore the matter is regulated by law, which envisages several state indicators, according to the present environmental characteristics of a country. Finally the design of an Urban Informative System architecture is outlined.

    Full Text Available Material handling system selection process has an important effect on productivity of manufacturing systems. Considering the importance of this process, it can be seen that there is a necessity to establish a systematic approach. In this study, to determine the best material handling system alternative, PROMETHEE approach is utilized. With the aim of taking into account the vagueness in the evaluation process and obtaining decision maker evaluations in an easier way with linguistic terms, fuzzy sets are utilized. To this end, a modified version of PROMETHEE is used. To foster the better understanding of the methodology, a real life application of a manufacturer is realized.

    Full Text Available This study is considered in an effort to analyze the accounting information system in Turkish shipbuilding industry enterprises objectively accompanied by the elements of the accounting organization which are the document, the book and the chart of accounts and to demonstrate the accounting activities which are in existence under the present circumstances in Turkey. Shipbuilding industry creates a lot of added value such as the transfer and production of new technologies, employment and foreign exchange return. It contributes to national defense needs as well. The construction of ships, dispensable to the world maritime trade, concerns many industrial fields such as steel, machinery manufacturing, electric-electronics, paint and rubber-plastic industry. The financial information is, by all means, developed through the medium of accounting information system in Turkey's shipbuilding industry which is carried out with 87 business enterprises in the aggregate and the current state of this number consists of 66 active shipyards and 21 ship dismantling institutions. With the assistance of the developments in formation and communication technologies, in our period, information is considered power and well-informed is considered powerful, and thus, the importance of information produced by the accounting information system has been increasing constantly. Within the context of this situation which also applies to the shipbuilding industry, it is becoming extremely important for the information produced by the accounting information system to be full, clear, understandable, timely, accurate, unbiased and reliable.

    los protones de retroceso procedentes de la dispersion inelastica de piones (produccion de piones aislados) en tres cantidades de movimiento correspondientes a piones incidentes. En este caso se registraron tambien varios millares de sucesos. El alcance y el angulo del proton de retroceso determinaron exclusivamente la transferencia de cantidad de movimiento y la energia del centro de masa del sistema di-pion, que fueron los parametros cinematicos de interes en este problema. En estos experimentos se logro un disparo despues de cada suceso y un tiempo de resolucion de 5 {mu}s, desbloqueando el segundo tubo de imagenes al recibir una senal del circuito electronico del contador de centelleo. Los autores estudian la preparacion y la ejecucion con exito de estos experimentos, sobre todo las caracteristicas mas interesantes de los tubos de imagenes de los contadores de centelleo y de los sistemas electronicos. Se ha adquirido tambien experiencia en el analisis de fotografias de trazas, en particular respecto de la precision alcanzable y la exactitud de los datos fisicos obtenidos.

    A very wide variety of sample preparation is used in the Special Training Division's research and teaching programmes. These range from simple source holders such as metal, cardboard and plastic source mounts, to precipitation devices using stainless steel and fibreglass mounts, and special source holders for liquid counting of samples. In addition to these techniques, a number of procedures of special interest in biomedical problems have been developed. One of the most important of these is the use of a catalytic synthesis of benzene which has been developed to the point to which an over-all yield of better than 90% is obtained. This synthesis can be used for carbon-containing compounds of interest in low-level tracing experiments and age dating problems. Since the synthesis involves the production of carbon dioxide at one step and the hydration of metallic carbide in another, it can be used either for the measurement of {sup 14}C or {sup 3}H or both in double labelling experiments. Considerable work is done on activation analysis of biological materials, particularly in the Division's radioecological programmes. Special techniques for the preparation of these materials for activation analysis and other radiochemical procedures are described. Since the problem of resolution in alpha-ray spectroscopy remains a very difficult one, considerable work is carried out by the oceanography and environmental studies group in the development of very thin samples which are capable of permitting higher resolution of alpha-ray spectra. These employ electrodeposition procedures from mixed solvents. Measurements are made with a special bank of Fairstein-Frisch grid counters associated with a 512-channel analyser for simultaneous recording of more than one spectrum. Solid-state detectors are also used and comparative results of gridded and solid-state detectors are shown.

(author) [Spanish] En el desarrollo de los programas de investigacion y de capacitacion profesional de la Division de Formacion Especial se utiliza una amplia variedad de metodos de preparacion de muestras, que abarcan desde el empleo de sencillos portafuentes a base de materiales tales como metal, cartulina y plasticos hasta el de dispositivos de precipitacion que utilizan soportes de acero inoxidable y fibra de vidrio y portafuentes especiales para el recuento por centelleo laquido. Admas de estas tecnicas, se han elaborado diversos procedimientos de interes especial para la resolucion de problemas biomedicos. Uno de los mas importantes consiste en el empleo de una sintesis catalitica del benceno que se ha perfeccionado hasta el punto de que se obtiene un rendimiento global superior al 90%. Esta sintesis puede aplicarse a los compuestos de carbono de interes para los experimentos con indicadores de baja actividad y problemas de determinacion de edades. Dado que la sintesis entrana la produccion de anhidrido carbonico en una fase y la hidratacion de carburo metalico en otra, puede utilizarse ya sea para medir {sup 14}Co o {sup 3}H o ambos en experimentos con marcacion doble. Se realiza una labor considerable en la esfera del analisis por activacion de sustancias biologicas, particularmente en la ejecucion de los programas radioecologicos de la division. Se describen tecnicas especiales para la preparacion de estas sustancias destinadas al analisis por activacion y otras operaciones radioquimicas. Dado que sigue siendo dificil la cuestion de la resolucion en la espectroscopia alfa, el grupo da estudios oceanograficos y ambientales lleva a cabo una labor considerable de preparacion de muestras muy delgadas que permiten alcanzar una resolucion mas elevada de los espectros alfa. Para ello se utilizan procedimientos de deposito electrolitico a partir de mezclas disolventes. Se efectuan mediciones con una bateria especial de contadores Fairstein-Frisch de rejilla conectados a un analizador de 512 canales para el registro simultaneo de mas de un espectro. Tambien se utilizan detectores de estado solido y se comparan los resultados obtenidos con detectores de rejilla y de semiconductores.

La eleccion del grado del acero y del espesor de la vaina depende de la resistencia a la corrosion y de la resistencia mecanica que se deseen. Las tensiones y las temperaturas de funcionamiento no permiten concebir una vaina que resista durante toda la vida util del elemento combustible si no se uti liza un grado de acero muy resistente y un espesor,superior a 0,5 mm. Se admite que la vaina se adhiera al combustible por fluencia: la deformacion por juego en sentido diametral puede producir una ovalizacion y un pliegue; el juego longitudinal puede dar lugar a flexiones de la vaina. Se han realizado muchos ensayos con vainas de 0,3 a 0,4 mm de espesor para estudiar el modo de deformacion en funcion de los juegos. Para estar seguros de que no se produciran ovaliza ciones con los espesores previstos, y para mantener lo mas baja posible la temperatura en el interior de la barra es preciso eliminar completamente el juego durante la fabricacion.

    Increasing recourse is being had to the scintigraphic method of morphological exploration of the amoebic liver owing to the frequency of hepatic localizations of amoebiasis and to the difficulties of clinical and paraclinical diagnosis of amoebic abscess of the organ. The method yields data of great importance in this field. The authors quote the statistics of examinations they have carried out and endeavour to draw conclusions from them. They describe the examination technique from the following points of view: (a) The choice of materials (I{sup 131}-labelled Rose Bengal and Au{sup 198} in colloidal solution) with their advantages and disadvantages; (b) The apparatus used, with special reference to the problem of collimation; (c) Actual performance of the examination, involving a functional study and the scintigram itself, which has to be carried out from different angles; (d) Repetition of the examination after an interval of several months. The authors then deal with the scintigraphic semiology of hepatic localizations of amoebiasis; they analyse the elementary abnormal images, study their topography, and describe their associations in the case of hepatitis and in cases of amoebic abscess. They then study the development of these images with time and report a number of cases for which the scintigraphic examination was repeated after an interval of several weeks or months. Finally, they enunciate the indications for application of the method, which provides essential data for the positive diagnosis of amoebic abscess of the liver and for topographical and morphological diagnosis (of particular interest surgically), and which makes it possible to observe the progress of the disease and the healing of the abscess after medical treatment. (author) [French] La methode scintigraphique est de plus en plus sollicitee pour l'exploration morphologique du foie amibien en raison de la frequence des localisations hepatiques de l'amibiase et des difficultes du diagnostic clinique et paraclinique de l'abces amibien du foie. La methode fournit dans ce domaine des renseignements d'interet majeur. Les auteurs rapportent la statistique des examens qu'ils ont effectues et se proposent de tirer les conclusions de ces examens. Ils decrivent la technique d'examen envisageant successivement: a) Le probleme du choix des produits (rose bengale marque avec {sup 131}I et {sup 198}Au en solution colloiedale), en soulignant leurs avantages et inconvenients respectifs; b) L'appareillage utilise en insistant sur le probleme de la collimation; c) Le deroulement de l'examen qui comporte une etude fonctionnelle et la scintigraphie proprement dite effectuee necessairement sous plusieurs incidences; d) La repetition de l'examen a plusieurs mois d'intervalle. Les auteurs traitent ensuite de la semiologie scintigraphique des localisations hepatiques de l'amibiase; ils analysent les images anormales elementaires; etudient leur topographie et decrivent les associations de ces images dans le cas d'hepatite et dans les cas d'abces amibien. Ils etudient l'evolution de ces images dans le temps, en rapportant un certain nombre de cas pour lesquels l'examen scintigraphique a ete repete a plusieurs semaines ou plusieurs mois d'intervalle. Enfin, ils degagent les indications de la methode qui apporte des renseignements essentiels pour preciser le diagnostic positif des abces amibiens du foie et pour le diagnostic topographique et morphologique (particulierement interessant sur le plan chirurgical), et qui permet de suivre l'evolution de la maladie et d'apprecier la guerison des abces apres traitement medical. (author) [Spanish] Las amibiasis se localizan con gran frecuencia en el higado y los abscesos que producen son dificiles de diagnosticar clinica o paraclinicamente. Por ello, en estos casos, la exploracion morfologica del higado se efectua cada vez mas por centelleografia, metodo que permite obtener datos de gran interes. Los autores exponen los resultados estadisticos de los examenes que han efectuado y las conclusiones correspondientes. Describen la tecnica de examen considerando, sucesivamente: a) el problema de la eleccion de los productos (Rosa Bengala marcadb con {sup 131}I; {sup 198}Au en solucion coloidal) senalando sus ventajas e inconvenientes; b) los aparatos empleados, insistiendo en el problema de la colimacion; c) el desarrollo del examen, que comprende un examen funcional y la centelleografia propiamente dicha efectuada, necesariamente, desde varias proyecciones; d) la repeticion del examen a intervalos de varios meses. A continuacion, los autores tratan de la semiologia centelleograueca de las amibiasis hepaticas, analizan las imagenes anormales elementales, examinan su topografia y describen las asociaciones de esas imagenes en el caso de la hepatitis y en el de los abscesos amibianos. Estudian la evolucion temporal de esas imagenes y dan informacion sobre un cierto numero de casos en que el examen centelleografico se repitio a intervalos de varias semanas o de varios meses. Por ultimo, senalan en que casos esta indicado este metodo, que facilita datos esenciales para precisar el diagnostico positivo de los abscesos hepaticos amibianos y su diagnostico topografico y morfologico, particularmente interesante desde el punto de vista quirurgico, y que permite seguir la evolucion de la enfermedad y apreciar la curacion de los abscesos despues del tratamiento medico.

    One of tile most significant problems that will face investors, managers and operators in nuclear activities and especially in the field of commercial nuclear power, will be the proper control of a nuclear materials inventory that will exceed US $5000 million in value by 1980. Special nuclear materials are expensive when compared to most materials of commerce, e.g. US prices for 90% enriched uranium and 3% enriched uranium as hexafluoride, and for heavy water are $10 808, $254 and $61.60 per kg, respectively. Moreover, in many cases these materials are subjected because of health and safety requirements to special governmental controls not directly related to their monetary value. Despite the high monetary values assigned to these materials, they are destined to be used in large quantity, e.g. some 50- 75 t of 3% enriched material will be used in 500-MW light-water-moderated reactor, and perhaps the equivalent of 200 to 300 reactors of such size will be in operation throughout the world by 1980. Past experience has resulted in the development of special procedures and practice for the commercial control of the large quantity, lower-value materials such as coal or iron ore and for the small quantity, higher value materials such as the precious metals. While they have like prices, special nuclear materials are different in kind and will be handled in quantities much greater than the precious metals. However, while special techniques or special adaptations of old techniques may be necessary, proper use of various established inventory control practices should be sufficient in most cases to protect adequately the investment of nations and individuals in these expensive materials. This paper establishes criteria for materials control. It specifically considers the appropriateness of various techniques of inventory control ranging from annual balancing of book records of receipts and shipments through detailed daily physical inventory in the light of the specific value and the total inventory of these special nuclear materials. A matrix of solutions to the management and inventory control of special nuclear materials will be presented. The multiplicity and relative effectiveness of varied techniques at key stages of the materials supply, utilization and recovery are assessed. (author) [French] L'un des plus importants problemes qui, dans le domaine nucleaire et notamment dans l'exploitation commerciale de l'energie d'origine nucleaire, se posera aux societes d'investissement, aux directeursetaux exploitants est celui du controle efficace de l'inventaire des matieres nucleaires dont la valeur depassera, d'ici 1980, 5 milliards de dollars des Etats-Unis. Comparativement a la plupart des matieres utilisees commercialement, les matieres nucleaires speciales sont couteuses; aux Etats-Unis par exemple, l'uranium enrichi a 90%, l'uranium enrichi a 3% sous forme d'hexa- fluorure et l'eau lourde coutent respectivement 10808 dollars, 254 dollars et 61,60 dollars le kilo. En outre, ces matieres sont frequemment soumises, pour des raisons de protection sanitaire et de securite, a des controles gouvernementaux speciaux sans rapport direct avec leur valeur monetaire. En depit de leur prix eleve, ces matieres sont destinees a etre utilisees en grandes quantites; par exemple, on utilisera de 50 a 75 t de combustible enrichi a 3{sup o}{r_brace}o dans un reacteur de 500 MW modere a l'eau ordinaire et 200 a 300 reacteurs de cette puissance fonctionneront vraisemblablement dans le monde en 1980. L'experience acquise a permis la mise au point et l'application de methodes speciales pour le controle commercial de grandes quantites de matieres de faible valeur comme le charbon ou le minerai de fer ou de petites quantites de matieres de grande valeur comme les metaux precieux. Tout en ayant des prix comparables a ces derniers, les matieres nucleaires speciales sont de nature differente et seront utilisees en quantites beaucoup plus importantes que les metaux precieux. Bien qu'il puisse etre necessaire de prevoir des methodes speciales ou d'adapter des techniques anciennes, il devrait toutefois suffire dans la plupart des cas d'utiliser de facon appropriee les differentes methodes d'inventaire bien connues pour assurer la protection des investissements des gouvernements et des particuliers dans l'exploitation de ces matieres couteuses. Les auteurs du memoire definissent les criteres a utiliser pour le controle des matieres nucleaires. Ils etudient notamment l'applicabilite de differentes methodes d'inventaire: pointage annuel des registres des matieres recues et expediees, inventaire quotidien et detaille des matieres elles-memes en tenant compte de leur valeur specifique, et inventaire general de ces matieres nucleaires speciales. Les auteurs presentent des solutions types permettant de gerer les matieres nucleaires speciales et de proceder a leur inventaire. Ils procedent a une evaluation de l'efficacite relative des multiples methodes applicables aux stades importants de la fourniture, de l'utilisation et de la recuperation des matieres nucleaires. (author) [Spanish] Uno de los problemas mas importantes que deberan resolver las personas que finanzan, administran o desarrollan actividades relacionadas con los procesos nucleares, especialmente en la esfera de la produccion comercial de energia nucleoelectrica.sera el que plantea el control adecuado de los materiales nucleares, cuyo valor en 1980 excedera de 5000 millones de dolares de los Estados Unidos. Los materiales nucleares especiales son caro': en los Estados Unidos, por ejemplo, el uranio enriquecido al 90%, el hexafluoruro de uranio enriquecido al 3% y el agua pesada cuestan, respectivamente, 10 808, 254 y 61,60 dolares el kg. Ademas, por motivos sanitarios y de seguridad, esos materiales estan en muchos casos sometidos por parte de las autoridades a un control especial sin relacion directa con su valor monetario. Pese a su elevado precio, los materiales nucleares se emplearan en grandes cantidades: basta senalar que un reactor de 500 MW, moderado por agua ligera, necesitara de 50 a 75 toneladas de material enriquecido al 3% y que es probable que en 1980 funcionen en el mundo de 200 a 300 reactores de esta potencia. La experiencia ha permitido elaborar procedimientos y practicas especiales para el control comercial de grandes cantidades de materiales baratos, como el carbon o el mineral de hierro, y de pequenas cantidades de materiales caros, como los metales preciosos. Aunque sus precios son similares a los de estos ultimos, los materiales nucleares especiales son de distinta clase y se utilizaran en cantidades mucho mayores. De todas formas, aunque quiza sea necesario recurrir a tecnicas especiales o adaptar tecnicas antiguas, en la mayoria de los casos bastara utilizar convenientemente los procedimientos ya conocidos de control de las existencias para proteger en forma adecuada las inversiones nacionales o individuales en esos materiales tan caros. En la memoria se exponen algunos criterios para el control de los materiales. Se estudian especialmente las tecnicas de control de las existencias (desde el balance contable anual hasta el inventario ffsico efectuado a diario) que resultan mas apropiadas dado el valor especffico y la cantidad total de los materiales nucleares especiales. Se presenta una matriz de soluciones para la administracion y el control de esas existencias. Se evalua la multiplicidad y la eficacia relativa de diversas tecnicas en momentos decisivos del suministro, el empleo y la regeneracion de los materiales.

    Main purpose of the work - a detailed study of the properties of materials obtained by irradiating mixtures of polydimethylsiloxan e rubber and various fillers (special silicic acid, titanium dioxide, flue dust, chimney soot and lamp black). The irradiation was done with a powerful X-ray unit and a Co{sup 60} gamma-ray source of 20,000 gr. radium equivalent. The relative speed of formation of the space lattice of the vulcanized material was evaluated (by the size of the equilibrium constant and the maximum degree of swelling in benzene). Changes in tensile strength and specific elongation during the irradiation process were studied. The optimum vulcanization regime was chosen and the basic physico-mechanical characteristics of the vulcanized materials were defined. Changes in the properties of the irradiated vulcanized material during hot aging at temperatures of 150{sup o}, 200{sup o} and 250{sup o} were studied. Irradiation in vulcanization removes the necessity for carrying out the process at high temperatures and for keeping the product under controlled temperature conditions for long periods after vulcanization. This new method of vulcanizing allows the use of carbon black as a filler. The use of ionizing radiation makes it possible to simplify the technique of vulcanizing silicon rubber and to improve the properties of the vulcanized material. (author) [French] L'etude porte avant tout sur les proprietes des matieres qu'on obtient apres avoir expose a des radiations du caoutchouc au polydimethyl-siloxane melange a des produits d'addition differents (acide silicique special, bioxyde de titane, noir de fumee en poudre impalpable obtenu au four et a la lampe). L'exposition aux radiations s'effectuait dans une installation puissante de rayons X et avec une source de rayonnement gamma en {sup 60}Co avec une activite de 20 000 g. eq. ra. Les auteurs ont evalue la vitesse relative de formation du reseau spatial des vulcanisants (selon la grandeur du module d'equilibre et du gonflement maximum apres immersion dans du benzol). Ils ont etudie les variations de la resistance a la rupture et de l'allongement relatif au cours de l'exposition aux radiations. Ils ont selectionne les regimes optimaux de vulcanisation et determine les coefficients physico-chimiques fondamentaux des vulcanisants. Ils ont etudie egalement la variation des proprietes des vulcanisants radiatifs au cours du vieillissement thermique, par des temperatures differentes (150{sup o}, 200{sup o} et 250{sup o}). La vulcanisation radiative evite l'emploi de temperatures elevees et le maintien prolonge d'une temperature constante apres vulcanisation. Cette nouvelle methode de vulcanisation permet d'utiliser, en guise de produits d'addition, des noirs de fumee. L'utilisation des radiations ionisantes permet de simplifier la technique de vulcanisation du caoutchouc au silicium et d'ameliorer les proprietes des vulcanisants. (author) [Spanish] La principal finalidad de este trabajo es estudiar detalladamente las propiedades de los materiales obtenidos por irradiacion de una mezcla de elastomero de polidimetilsiloxano y distintas cargas (acido silicico especial, bioxido de titanio, hollin y negro de humo). La irradiacion se efectuo con un aparato de rayos X de gran potencia o con una fuente gamma de {sup 60}Co de una intensidad equivalente a la de 20 000 gramos de radio. La velocidad relativa de reticulacion de las sustancias vulcanizadas se determino segun la magnitud de la constante de equilibrio y el grado maximo de turgencia en benceno. Se estudiaron las variaciones de la resistencia a la traccion y del alargamiento especifico durante el proceso de irradiacion. Se eligieron los regimenes optimos de vulcanizacion y se determinaron las princiales propiedades fisicas y mecanicas de las sustancias vulcanizadas. Asimismo, se estudiaron las variaciones que las propiedades de las sustancias radiovulcanizadas experimentan en el transcurso del envejecimiento termico a distintas temperaturas (150{sup o}, 200{sup o} y 250{sup o}). La irradiacion permite disminuir la temperatura de vulcanizacion y prescindir de un almacenamiento prolongado a temperatura regulada, que de otro modo es necesario despues de la vulcanizacion. El negro de humo puede utilizarse como material de carga para el caucho vulcanizado con arreglo al nuevo metodo. Los autores llegan a la conclusion de que el empleo de las radiaciones ionizantes se traduce en una simplificacion de la tecnologia de la vulcanizacion del caucho de siliconas y en un mejoramiento de las propiedades de los productos obtenidos.

    Radiation-sterilized enzyme-inactivated cod (Gadus macrocephalus) and halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepsis) patties or cakes were developed which show promise as commercial products. They were prepared by incorporating the comminuted fish with white corn meal, gelatin, and salt and forming the mixture into sausages. Enzymes were inactivated by heating the sausages in a boiling water-bath. After cooling overnight to set the protein, the sausages were sliced into 3/8-in-thick patties, packed in cans and given a radiation dose of 4.5 Mrad. The radiation sterilized products were stored for 12 months at 72 Degree-Sign F with periodic evaluations to assess the quality and the effect of various treatments. The treatments included vacuum packing, the addition of various antioxidants, and the use of charcoal packets. The products just prior to serving were dipped in batter and breading and deep-fried. The fish patties were evaluated by flavorpanels and objective measurements, such as total volatile bases, 2-thiobarbituric acid number, pH and colorrreflectance values. The products received acceptable flavor scores from preference panels (140 to 170 judges) during twelve months of storage at 72 Degree-Sign F. Although the panels preferred the non-irradiated control samples to the irradiated samples after 12 months, all stored irradiated patties scored on the ''like'' side of the 9-point hedonic scale. The color-reflectance values of radiation-sterilized seafood products can be used as a measure of the radiation-induced browning and seemed to correlate with length of storage.

    Critical and exponential experiments in general produce overlapping information on reactor lattices. Over the past ten years the Savannah River Laboratory has been operating a heavy-water critical, the PDP, and an exponential, the SE, in parallel. This paper summarizes SRL experience to give results and recommendations as to the applicability of the two kinds of facilities in different experiments. Six types of experiments are considered below: (1) Buckling measurements in uniform isotropic lattices Here Savannah River has made extensive comparisons between single-region criticals, exponentials, substitution criticals, and PCTR type measurements. The only difficulties in the exponentials seem to lie in the radial-buckling determinations. If these can be made successfully, the exponentials can offer good competition to the criticals. Material requirements are greatest for the single-region criticals, roughly comparable for the substitution criticals and exponentials, and least for the PCTR measurements. (2) Anisotropic and void effects SRL experiments with the criticals and with critical-exponential comparisons are reviewed briefly here and at greater length in a companion paper. (3) Evaluation of control systems Adequately analysed exponential experiments appear to give good results for total-worth measurements. However, for adequate study of overall flux shaping, flux tilts, etc. a full-sized critical such as the PDP is required. (4) Temperature coefficients Exponential experiments provide an excellent method for determining the temperature coefficient of buckling for uniform lattice heating. A special facility, the PSE, at Savannah River permits such measurements up to temperatures of 215 Degree-Sign C. For non-uniform lattice heating criticals are generally preferred. (5) Mixed lattices Actual reactors rarely use the simple uniform lattices to which the exponentials basically apply. Critical experiments with mixed loadings are used at SRL both in measuring direct effects in mock-ups and as a test for heterogeneous and two-dimensional diffusion calculations. (6) Criticality studies of heavy-water lattice fuel in light water The SRL exponentials have proved particularly valuable for criticality studies to determine safe methods of handling enriched fuel in light water. High accuracy is not required in this case, and the generalized exponential buckling studies are definitely preferable to the more particularized critical studies. (author) [French] En regle generale, les experiences critiques et exponentielles sur des reseaux de reacteurs fournissent des renseignements qui font double emploi. Durant les dix dernieres annees, le Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) a fait fonctionner simultanement un ensemble critique a eau lourde (PDP) et un ensemble exponentiel (SE). Les auteurs exposent brievement l'experience acquise au SRL, indiquent les resultats obtenus et font des recommandations au sujet de la possibilite d'appliquer ces deux genres d'installations dans differentes experiences. Les auteurs examinent les six types d'experiences ci-apres: 1. Mesures du laplacien dans les reseaux isotropiques uniformes Le SRL a procede a de nombreuses comparaisons entre les mesures faites a l'aide d'ensembles critiques a une seule region, d'ensembles exponentiels, d'ensembles critiques a substitution et du reacteur d'essai des constantes physiques (PCTR). El semble que les seules difficultes que presentent les experiences exponentielles, resident dans les determinations du laplacien dans le sens radial. Si l'on reussit a faire ces determinations, les experiences exponentielles peuvent etre comparees favorablement aux experiences critiques. Les ensembles critiques a une seule region necessitent le plus de matieres; viennent ensuite les ensembles critiques a substitution et les ensembles exponentiels dont les besoins sont en gros comparables; enfin le PCTR ou les mesures en exigent le moins. 2. Effets anisotropiques et effets cavitaires Des experiences a l'aide d'ensembles critiques et les comparaisons faites entre experiences exponentielles et experiences critiques font l'objet d'un apercu dans le present memoire et d'un expose detaille dans un autre memoire. 3. Evaluation des barres de controle Une analyse appropriee des experiences exponentielles semble donner de bons resultats lorsqu'il s'agit de mesures de l'antireactivite totale. Cependant, si l'on veut etudier convenablement certaines caracteristiques du flux, il faut un ensemble critique de dimensions normales tel que le PDP. 4. Coefficients de temperature Les experiences exponentielles offrent une methode excellente si l'on veut determiner le coefficient thermique du laplacien pour un chauffage de reseau uniforme. Une installation speciale (PSE) du SRL permet de proceder a ces mesures a des temperatures allant jusqu'a 215 Degree-Sign C. Pour un chauffage non uniforme, on prefere generalement utiliser des ensembles critiques. 5. Reseaux mixtes Dans les reacteurs, on utilise rarement les reseaux uniformes simples auxquels les experiences exponentielles s'appliquent essentiellement. Au SRL, on fait des experiences critiques a chargements mixtes tant pour mesurer les effets directs dans des maquettes de reacteurs que pour verifier les calculs de diffusion heterogenes et a deux dimensions. 6. Etudes,au point de vue de l'etat critique, du comportement dans l'eau ordinaire d'un combustible destine a un reseau a eau lourde Les ensembles exponentiels du SRL se sont reveles particulierement utiles pour les etudes visant a determiner comment manipuler le combustible enrichi dans l'eau ordinaire. Ces travaux ne necessitent pas une tres grande exactitude; les experiences exponentielles d'un caractere, plus general sont nettement preferables aux experiences critiques d'un caractere plus particulier. (author) [Spanish] Con los conjuntos criticos y los exponenciales se obtienen generalmente informaciones en parte repetidas sobre los reticulados de reactor. En los ultimos diez afios, en el Laboratorio de Savannah River (SRL) se ha venido trabajando con un conjunto critico de agua pesada el PDP, y con un conjunto exponencial, el SE, en forma paralela. Los autores presentan una resefla de a experiencia asi adquirida en dicho laboratorio, exponiendo los resultados y formulando recomendaciones sobre cual de los dos tipos de conjuntos resulta mas adecuado para determinados experimentos. A continuacion se exponen seis tipos de experimentos: 1. Determinacion del laplaciano en reticulados isotropicos uniformes En el SRL se han llevado a cabo extensas comparaciones entre mediciones efectuadas con ayuda de conjuntos criticos de region unica, conjuntos exponenciales, conjuntos criticos de sustitucion y del reactor PCTR (prompt critical test reactor). En el caso de los conjuntos exponenciales, aparentemente solo se tropieza con dificultades en las determinaciones del laplaciano radial. Si se llegase a salvarlas, los experimentos exponenciales podrian rivalizar sin desmedro con los criticos. Los conjuntos criticos de region unica son los que exigen mas material; les sigilen los conjuntos criticos de sustitucion y los exponenciales, cuyas necesidades son, en terminos generales, comparables; en ultimo termino figura el PCTR, cuyas exigencias son minimas. 2. Efectos anisotropicos y de cavitacion Se examinan brevemente loe experimentos realizados en el SRL con conjuntos criticos y se establecen comparaciones entre estos y los conjuntos exponenciales; en otra memoria se trata el mismo tema con mas detalle. ' 3. Evaluacion de los sistemas de control Los experimentos exponenciales se prestan para efectuar mediciones de la eficacia global, siempre que sus resultados se analicen adecuadamente. No obstante, para un estudio cabal de la distribucion general del flujo, de los gradientes de flujo, etc., se requiere un conjunto critico de gran tamano, como el PDP. 4. Coeficientes de temperatura Los experimentos exponenciales constituyen un excelente metodo para determinar el coeficiente termico del laplaciano para un calentamiento uniforme del reticulado. En el SRL hay una instalacion especial, el PSE, que permite establecer dicho coeficiente hasta temperaturas de 215 Degree-Sign C. En cambio, para un calentamiento no uniforme, se prefiere generalmente los conjuntos criticos. 5. Reticulados mixtos En los reactores en funcionamiento raramente se usan los reticulados uniformes simples a los cuales se aplican basicamente los experimentos exponenciales. En el SRL se recurre a los experimentos criticos con cargas mezcladas, tanto para medir los efectos directos en maquetas, como para verificar la correccion de los calculos de difusion en medios heterogeneos y bidimensionales. 6. Estudios de la criticidad en agua ligera de un combustible destinado a reticulados de agua pesada Se ha comprobado que los experimentos exponenciales del laboratorio del SRL son particularmente valiosos para los estudios de criticidad encaminados a encontrar metodos seguros de manipulacion en agua ligera del combustible enriquecido. Estos trabajos no exigen una exactitud muy grande, y cabe senalar que los estudios de tipo general del laplaciano efectuados en conjuntos exponenciales son decididamente preferibles a los estudios especializados con conjuntos criticos.

    The paper gives the results of a study of the physical characteristics of NIMONIC-type absorbing alloys with oxides of rare-earth elements dispersed in them (gadolinium, samarium, europium etc. ). The paper discusses changes in absorbing capacity in relation to the composition of the material, describes the mechanical and thermophysical properties of the absorbing materials as a function of the concentration of absorber introduced into the alloy and, finally, gives the results of a study of the effect of radiation on the properties of the materials. It is shown that absorbing alloys with oxides of rare-earth elements dispersed in the metallic matrix possess considerable absorbing capacity for relatively small amounts of absorber in the alloy (5 to 10%). When oxides of rare-earth elements are added, NIMONIC-type alloys have relatively high resistance and thermophysical characteristics (o{sub B}, E, {lambda}) at high temperatures for absorber concentrations up to about 10%. Dispersion materials of this type have satisfactory radiation stability in a radiation field of about 3 x 10{sup 20}n/cm{sup 2} at high temperature.

Ils montrent que les alliages absorbants contenant des oxydes de terres rares disperses dans une matrice metallique ont une capacite d'absorption importante pour une teneur de l'alliage relativement faible en'matieres absorbantes (environ 5 a 10%). Les alliages du type nimonik auxquels on a ajoute des. oxydes de terres rares ont des caracteristiques d'endurance et des.caracteristiques thermo-physiques d'une valeur relativement elevee (o{sub B}, E, {lambda}) a des temperatures elevees pour les valeurs de la concentration de l 'absorbant voisines de 10%.

    Meteorites as space probes for cosmic rays. An experiment has been performed to test the spatial constancy of high-energy cosmic radiation within the solar system by measuring a short-lived and a long-lived cosmic-ray-induced radioactivity in a recently fallen meteorite. This test depends on the fact that meteorites have highly eccentric orbits and therefore serve as space probes over the region between the earth's orbit and the asteroidal belt. The short-lived activity is produced while the meteorite is in the vicinity of the earth's orbit, while the long-lived activity is produced over the entire orbit of the meteorite. The measurement was performed on the chondrite that fell at Hamlet, Ind., on 13 October 1959. The 35-day argon-37 and the 325-year argon-39 activities wore observed in the meteorite. The relative amounts of these activities are compared with the production rates of these isotopes derived from bombarding a sample of the meteorite with 3-GeV protons. It was concluded that the cosmic-ray flux within the limits of error is the same in the asteroidal belt as it is near the earth's orbit. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont essaye de controler la constance spatiale des rayonnements cosmiques de grande energie a l'interieur du systeme solaire en mesurant la radioactivite - induite par les rayons cosmiques - d'un element de courte periode et d'un element de longue periode dans une meteorite recemment tombee. Ce controle est fonde sur le fait que les meteorites ont des orbites tres excentriques et jouent par consequent le role de sondes spatiales dans la region situee entre l'orbite de la terre et la zone des asteroides. L'activite de courte periode est produite pendant que la meteorite est a proximite de l'orbite de la terre tandis que l'activite de longue periode est produite sur toute l'orbite de la meteorite. Les auteurs ont procede a des mesures sur la chondrite Hamlet, qui est tombee le 13 octobre 1959. Ils ont en particulier evalue l'activite imputable a l'argon-37 (periode: 35 jours) et a l'argon-39 (periode: 325 ans). Ils comparent ces activites relatives aux taux de production de ces isotopes que l'on obtient en bombardant un echantillon de la meteorite avec des protons ayant une energie de 3 GeV. Les auteurs concluent que, dans les limites d'erreur, le flux de rayons cosmiques est le meme dans la ceinture asteroide que dans le voisinage de l'orbite terrestre. (author) [Spanish] Para determinar la constancia espacial de la radiacion cosmica de elevada energia en el interior del sistema solar, los autores midieron la radiactividad, inducida por los rayos cosmicos, de un elemento de periodo corto y de un elemento de periodo largo en un meteorito caido recientemente. El experimento se basa en el hecho de que los meteoritos siguen orbitas muy excetricas y, por ello, pueden ser utilizados como sondas espaciales en la region situada entre la orbita terrestre y el cinturon de asteroides. La actividad de periodo corto se produce mientras el meteorito se encuentra en las proximidades de la orbita terrestre, en tanto que la actividad de periodo largo es inducida en toda la orbita descrita por el meteorito. Los autores efectuaron las mediciones en el condrito Hamlet que cayo en Indiana el 13 de octubre de 1.959. Evaluaron las actividades astribuibles al argon-37 (periodo: 35 dias) y al argon-39 (periodo: 325 anos). Compararon los valores relativos de estas actividades con los indices de produccion de esos isotopos que se alcanzan bombardeando una muestra del meteorito con protones de 3 GeV.

    Improved reactor performance requires the use of accurately fabricated and carefully inspected components. One inspection relates to the quality of the cladding tubes, whose mechanical reliability is essential for economic reactor operation. The choice and development of a method is a difficult matter and the authors explain the main factors involved. Once the choice has been made and the method has been developed in the laboratory, two new problems arise: Adaptation to meet industrial requirements; and The need to reconcile the quality standards attainable with the manufacturing process at any given stage and the somewhat arbitrarily defined specifications for the finished product. In practice, this involves a statistical study of batches of tubes from various sources and their classification in relation to more or less strict thresholds. The number of tubes which have to be inspected is much larger than originally expected. This has led to the design of an automatic inspection device geared both to the output rates involved and to the requirements of the type of inspection adopted; the latter are generally mechanical and impose particularly careful product fabrication. These various characteristics are now embodied in a device whose capacity can already easily meet the requirements of a fuel-element production line. The potentialities of the device are closely dependent on the characteristics of the inspection equipment used, especially the performances of the electronic part of ultrasonic inspection instruments and of the transducers. This study shows that standard equipment is not very suitable and that immediate thought should be given to special instruments for this type of inspection. (author) [French] L'accroissement des performances des reacteurs necessite l'utilisation de materiaux finement elabores et soigneusement controles. L'un des aspects de ce controle est celui de la qualite des tubes de gainage utilises, dont la tenue mecanique est un facteur essentiel de rentabilite du reacteur. Il s'avere que le choix de la methode a utiliser et a mettre au point est delicat; le memoire en donne les elements essentiels. Ce choix etant fait, apres mise au point en laboratoire, deux nouveaux problemes se posent: - la transposition dans le domaine industriel; - la necessite de tenir compte de la qualite permise, a un instant determine, par les procedes de fabrication, en relation avec les normes de reception definies de maniere plus ou moins arbitraire. Ceci se traduit en fait par la necessite d'une etude statistique sur des lots de tubes de diverses provenances, et leur classement par rapport a des seuils plus ou moins severes. On verra que le nombre de tubes a controler est tres superieur a celui prevu initialement. Cela conduit a l'etude d'une machine de controle automatique, capable de satisfaire a la fois les exigences de cadence et celles propres au type de controle choisi: ces dernieres sont generalement d'ordre mecanique et necessitent une construction particulierement soignee. L'ensemble de ces considerations a conduit a concevoir une machine dont la cadence peut des maintenant couvrir sans difficulte les besoins d'une chaihe de fabrication d'elements combustibles. Les possibilites de cette machine sont etroitement liees aux caracteristiques du materiel de controle choisi, en particulier aux performances de l'electronique des appareils de controle par ultrasons et a celles des traducteurs utilises. Il resulte d'ailleurs de cette etude que le materiel standard ne repond que tres imparfaitement au probleme et que l'on doit envisager des maintenant un appareillage particulier pour ce type de controle. (author) [Spanish] Las mayores exigencias a que se someten los reactores obligan a utilizar materiales elaborados y controlados con sumo cuidado. Un aspecto de tal control se refiere a la calidad de las vainas empleadas, cuyas propiedades mecanicas ejercen una influencia decisiva sobre la rentabilidad del reactor. La eleccion del metodo a utilizar representa un proceso delicado, cuyas consideraciones fundamentales se exponen en el presente trabajo. Una vez elegido el metodo y puesto a punto en el laboratorio, surgen dos nuevos problemas: Transposicion a escala industrial. Necesidad de tener siempre presente la calidad que puede alcanzarse en la industria, en relacion con normas de aceptacion definidas de manera mas o menos arbitraria. En la practica, ello obliga a realizar un estudio estadistico sobre partidas de tubos de diversos origenes y clasificarlos teniendo en cuenta umbrales de aceptacion de distintos grados de severidad. Como se ve en el trabajo, el numero de tubos a controlar es muy superior al previsto inicialmente. Este hecho indujo a estudiar una maquina de control automatico, capaz de satisfacer al mismo tiempo las exigencias de la cantidad y las propias del tipo de control seleccionado; estas ultimas son por lo general de orden mecanico y requieren una construccion especialmente esmerada. El conjunto de estas consideraciones llevo a concebir una maquina capaz de satisfacer sin dificultad las necesidades de una cadena de fabricacion'de elementos combustibles. Las posibilidades de esta maquina estan estrechamente ligadas a las caracteristicas del material descontrol escogido, sobre todo al rendimiento de los circuitos electronicos correspondientes a los aparatos de control por metodos ultrasonicos y al de los transductores utilizados. Se deduce del presente estudio, por otra parte, que el material corriente no responde al problema sino de manera muy imperfecta, y que se debe encarar desde ya el proyecto de un aparato especial para este tipo de control.

    A variety of methods is available for the determination of the plutonium content of nuclear materials. For milligram amounts of plutonium the available methods include differential spectrophotometry using the colour of Pu (III), gravimetry based on PuO{sub 2} gamma counting, and redox methods including potentiometric and amperometric titrations and controlled-potential coulometry. Alpha counting, isotopic dilution, and polarographic methods are suitable for microgram amounts. Some methods are more suitable than others for certain types of sample and the analyst is faced with difficult selection problems to achieve the best results. The advantages and limitations of the above methods are described in the light of a varied experience with them over many years at AERE, together with comments on accuracy, precision, sensitivity and features of special interest. Some of the methods cannot be applied without some separation of the plutonium from other sample constituents, and comments are made from experience in the use of anion exchange and reverse-phase chromatographic techniques for this with emphasis on their suitability for radioactive samples. Consideration is given to the many problems that have arisen in the successful application of these methods to the analysis of plutonium alloys, ceramics and cermets in various systems containing uranium, thorium, iron, chromium, molybdenum, cerium and cobalt. Difficulties occurring in the dissolution of samples and in the adjustment of the plutonium to the required valency state are described. The respective merits of dissolving in mixtures of common mineral acids and with the aid of fusion techniques are commented upon with examples. Outlines of procedures, together with analytical results for typical samples, are given for the analysis of Pu-U, Pu-Ce-Co and Pu-U-Mo alloys, Pu-U oxides and carbides, and Pu-U carbide cermets with Fe, Mo and Cr. These materials have arisen from metallurgical research and development programmes for new nuclear fuels. (author) [French] Il existe plusieurs methodes de dosage de la teneur en plutonium des matieres nucleaires. Pour les quantites de l'ordre du milligramme, les methodes utilisables sont la spectro- photometiie differentielle fondee sur la couleur de Pu (III), la gravimetrie fondee sur PuO{sub 2}, le comptage gamma et les methodes de reduction/oxydation comprenant les titrages poientiometriques et amperemetriques et la coulombmetrie a potentiel constant. Pour les quantites de Tordre du microgramme, le comptage alpha, la dilution isotopique et les methodes polarigraphiques sont a utiliser. Certaines methodes conviennent mieux que d'autres a des types determines d'echantillons et l'analyste soucieux d'obtenir les meilleurs resultats se heurte a un choix difficile. Les auteurs exposent les avantages et les inconvenients des methodes citees tels qu'ils se sont degages de l'experience acquise au cours des annees a l'Atomic Energy Research Establishment, et ils discutent l'exactitude, la precision, la sensibilite de ces methodes, et d'autres caracteristiques presentant un interet particulier. Certaines methodes ne peuvent etre utilisees si l'on n'a, dans une certaine mesure, separe le plutonium des autres constituants de l'echantillon et le memoire commente l'experience acquise avec l'echange d'anions et les procedes de chromatographie a phase inversee utilises a cette fin, en insistant surtout sur la mesure dans laquelle cette methode convient aux echantillons radioactifs. Les auteurs etudient en outre les nombreux problemes qui se sont poses lors de l'application (d'ailleurs couronnee de succes) de ces methodes a l'analyse des alliages de plutonium, des ceramiques et des cermets dans differentes combinaisons contenant de l'uranium, du thorium, du fer, du chrome, du molybdene, du cerium et du cobalt. Us exposent les difficultes de la dissolution des echantillons et de la reduction du plutonium a l'etat de valence voulu, ainsi que les avantages respectifs de la dissolution dans des melanges d'acides mineraux courants et de la dissolution faisant appel a des procedes de fusion, avec des exemples a l'appui. Les auteurs decrivent aussi les procedes utilises et les resultats obtenus, pour l'analyse des alliages Pu-U, Pu-Ce-Co et Pu-U-Mo, des oxydes et carbures de Pu-U, et des cermets de carbure de Pu-U contenant Fe, Mo et Cr. Ces matieres sont l'aboutissement de recherches metallurgiques destinees a mettre au point des combustibles nucleaires. (author) [Spanish] Para determinar el contenido de plutonio de los materiales nucleares existen diversos metodos. Si se trata de cantidades del orden del miligramo se pueden emplear la espectrofotometria diferencial por el color del Pu (III), la gravimetria basada en el PuO2{sub ,} si recuento gamma y metodos de oxidorreduccion como las valoraciones potenciometricas o amperimetricas y la culombiometria de potencial controlado. Si se trata de microgramos son preferibles el recuento alfa, la dilucion isotopica o las tecnicas polarograficas. Teniendo en cuenta que unos metodos son mas adecuados que otros para ciertos tipos de muestra, el analista tiene que resolver un dificil problema de seleccion a fin de obtener ios mejores resultados posibles. Los autores exponen las ventajas y las limitaciones puestas de manifiesto por los anos de experiencia en la A.E.R.E. y formulan observaciones acerca de la exactitud y la precision de los metodos, su sensibilidad y otras cuestiones de especial interes. Como algunos de esos metodos exigen la separacion previa del plutonio, los autores estudian el empleo de las tecnicas de intercambio anionico y de cromatografia en fase inversa, y en particular su conveniencia para el analisis de muestras radiactivas. Examinan los muchos problemas que han surgido al analizar por estos metodos, aleaciones, productos ceramicos y cermets de plutonio en diversos sistemas que contenian uranio, torio, hierro, cromo, molibdeno, cerio y cobalto. La memoria trata ademas de las dificultades que se encuentran al disolver las muestras y al llevar el plutonio al estado de valencia deseado. Comenta con ejemplos las ventajas y los inconvenientes de disolver las muestras en mezclas de acidos inorganicos corrientes o mediante tecnicas de fusion. Los autores exponen someramente los procedimientos de analisis y dan los resultados obtenidos con muestras tipicas de aleaciones de Pu-U, Pu-Ce-Co y Pu-U-Mo, oxidos y carburos de Pu-U, y cermets carburados de Pu-U con Fe, Mo y Cr. Estos materiales han ido surgiendo de los programas de investigacion metalurgica y de desarrollo de nuevos combustibles nucleares.

    Microbiological studies on the use of ionizing radiation for the elimination of Salmonellae from various foods have demonstrated that a wide variety of factors can influence the radiation sensitivity of the organisms. These factors include the nature of the food itself and the temperature during irradiation, e.g. whether frozen or unfrozen. The difference in resistance of different serotypes of Salmonellae irradiated under the same conditions has also been well established. Dose/survival curves constructed for the purpose of making a choice of dose for a particular application must therefore be established for the practical conditions envisaged and be based on the most resistant serotype present. Since these conditions can never be exactly reproduced in the laboratory, the choice of dose should be confirmed by a substantial amount of work with the naturally-contaminated material. It is apparent that the doses required for the treatment of various foods lie within the' range 0.5 to 1.0 Mrad, achieving a reduction in numbers of initial populations by a factor of between 10{sup 5} and 10{sup 7} . The most promising processes are those considered for frozen and dried-egg products, frozen meats and animal feedingstuffs. (author) [French] A la suite d'etudes microbiologiques sur la possibilite d'employer des rayonnements ionisants pour detruire les Salmonellaedans divers produits alimentaires, il est apparu que la radio- sensibiliteide ces organismes depend de nombreux facteurs, en particulier de la nature du produit et de sa temperature (produit congele ou non) pendant l'irradiation. On a egalement reconnu que diverses varietes serologiques de Salmonellae, irradiees dans les memes conditions, ont une radioresistance differente. Des,courbes de survie en fonction de la dose, construites en vue de determiner la dose necessaire poiir Un traitement' donne, doivent donc etre etablies pour les conditions pratiques envisagees et compte tenu de la plus resistante des varietes serologiques presentes. Etant donne que ces conditions ne peuvent jamais etre reproduites exactement en laboratoire, le choix de la dose doit etre confirme par des recherches suffisamment etendues sur le meme produit contamine par voie naturelle. Il est apparu que, pour traiter differents produits alimentaires, il faut utiliser des doses comprises entre 0,5 et.1,0 Mrad qui permettent de reduire d'un facteur allant de 10{sup 5} a 10{sup 7} l'importance numerique des populations initiales. Les procedes qui semblent devoir donner de meilleurs resultats sont ceux que l'on envisage d'utiliser pour les produits a base d'oeufs congeles et deshydrates, les viandes congelees et les produits destines a l'alimentation animale. (author) [Spanish] Los estudios microbiologicos sobre el empleo de las radiaciones ionizantes para eliminar las Salmonellae de varios alimentos muestran que en la radiosensibilidad de esos microorganismos puede influir toda una serie de factores. Entre estos cabe citar la naturaleza del propio alimento y su temperatura durante la irradiacion, por ejemplo, si esta congelado o sin congelar. Tambien se han puesto claramente de manifiesto las diferencias de resistencia de distintos serotipos de Salmonellae irradiados en identicas condiciones. Por consiguiente, las curvas de dosis/supervivencia, que se preparen con el fin de seleccionar la dosis para una aplicacion particular, deben trazarse con arreglo a las condiciones practicas que se prevean y basarse en el serotipo mas resistente de los presentes. Como estas condiciones nunca pueden reproducirse exactamente en el laboratorio, la eleccion de la dosis debe confirmarse realizando amplios trabajos con alimentos naturalmente contaminados. Se llega a la conclusion de que las dosis necessarias para tratar varios alimentos son del orden de 0,5 a 1,0 Mrad, con lo que se logra reducir entre 10{sup 5} y 10{sup 7} veces la poblacion inicial. Los procedimientos mas interesantes son los aplicados a los huevos congelados y desecados y a sus derivados, a las carnes congeladas y a los alimentos de consumo animal.

    X- or {gamma}-ray cameras consist essentially of a hole-type or grid-type lens system together with a detector. The authors propose two kinds of detector quite different from the Anger device, which so far has been the only one in practical use. The first consists of a self-triggering spark chamber. This chamber, about 20 cm in diam. and filled with a rare gas (argon or xenon), forms a cathode and two grids. The cathode and the second grid are subjected to a potential difference of several kilovolts, somewhat lower than the breakdown voltage. The first cathode-grid space serves as an electron source under the action of the low-energy X- or {gamma}-ray photons. The cathode can also be plated with a metal of high Z, or a crystal scintillator connected to a photocathode can be used. After suitable amplification, the sudden burst of charges due to electron multiplication in the Townsend avalanche produces a well localized spark with a delay of a fraction of a microsecond. The image is obtained with the aid of a camera whose shutter is permanently open. The second type of detector consists of a Csl (Tl) crystal connected to the photocathode of a Thomson tube, 20 cm in diam. and with electrostatic focusing. The image on the secondary screen of this tube is transferred by an optical device to the photocathode of a tube with parallel electric and magnetic field (manufactured by the English Electric Valve Company) and serving as shutter. Some of the light entering the optical device is received by a photomultiplier, which controls the opening of the shutter tube through an amplitude selector. This arrangement makes it possible to distinguish between the light due to the signal and that due to the noise of the Thomson tube. The shutter tube is opened only by the former. Since the shutter tube remains open for only an extremely short time, the signal-noise ratio of this detector arrangement is high enough to give an image on the end screen of the shutter tube using a permanently open camera. The paper discusses the characteristics of these two types of detector and the preliminary results obtained. (author) [French] Les cameras a rayons X ou {gamma} sont essentiellement constituees par une optique, stenopee ou grille, associee a un detecteur. Les auteurs proposent deux types de detecteur tout a fait differents du dispositif de'Anger, jusqu'ici le seul a avoir ete pratiquement utilise. Le premier est constitue par une chambre a etincelle auto-declenchee. Cette chambre, d'une vingtaine de centimetres de diametre et remplie d'un gaz rare (argon ou xenon), presente une cathode et deux grilles. La cathode et la deuxieme grille sont soumises a une difference de potentiel de quelques kilovolts, un peu inferieure a la tension de claquage. Le premier espace cathode-grille sert de source d'electron sous l'action des photons X ou {gamma} de faible energie. On peut egalement utiliser un placage de la cathode par un metal de Z eleve ou un cristal scintillateur associe a une photocathode. La bouffee brusque de charges due a la multiplication des electrons dans l'avalanche de Townsend declenche, apres amplification convenable, une etincelle bien localisee avec un retard d'une fraction de {mu}s. L'image est obtenue au moyen d'un appareil photographique dont l'obturateur est ouvert en permanence. Le second type de detecteur est constitue par un cristal de CsI(Tl) associe a la photocathode d'un tube Thomson a focalisation electrostatique de 20 cm de diametre. L'image sur l'ecran secondaire de ce tube est transferee au moyen d'un dispositif optique sur la photocathode d'un tube a champ electrique et magnetique parallele, de la compagnie English Electric Valve, jouant le role d'obturateur. Une partie de la lumiere penetrant dans le dispositif optique est recue par un photomultiplicateur qui commande l'ouverture du tube obturateur par l'intermediaire d'un selecteur d'amplitude. Cet artifice permet d'effectuer la selection entre la lumiere due au signal et celle due au bruit du tube Thomson. Seule la premiere declenche l'ouverture du tube obturateur. Comme la duree de cette ouverture est extremement courte, le rapport signal/bruit de cet ensemble detecteur est assez eleve pour obtenir une image au moyen d'un appareil photographique ouvert en permanence sur l'ecran terminal du tube obturateur. Les caracteristiques de ces deux types de detecteur et les resultats preliminaires obtenus sont discutes. (author) [Spanish] Las camaras de rayos X o {gamma} estan constituidas esencialmente por un dispositivo optico, consistente en un orificio o una rejilla, asociado a un detector. Los autores proponen dos tipos de detector completamente distintos del dispositivo de Anger, que hasta ahora es el unico utilizado en la practica. El primero consiste en una camara de chispa autodisparada, de unos 20 cm de diametro, llena de un gas noble (argon o xenon). Contiene un catodo y dos rejillas. Entre el catodo y la segunda rejilla hay una diferencia de potencial de varios kilovoltios, algo inferior a la tension de descarga. Bajo la accion de los fotones X o {gamma} de poca energia, el primer espacio catodo-rejilla sirve de fuente de electrones. Se puede tambien utilizar un catodo contraplacado con un metal de elevado numero atomico o un cristal centelleador asociado a un fotocatodo. Convenientemente amplificado, el incremento brusco de las cargas debido a la multiplicacion de los electrones en la avalancha de Townsend provoca con un retardo de una fraccion de microsegundo una chispa bien localizada. La imagen se obtiene por medio de un aparato fotografico cuyo*obturador permanece constantemente abierto. El segundo tipo de detector consiste en un cristal de Csl (TI) asociado al fotocatodo de un tubo de Thomson de enfoque electrostatico, de 20 cm de diametro. La imagen que aparece en la pantalla secundaria de este tubo es transferida por un dispositivo optico al fotocatodo de un tubo de campos electrico y magnetico paralelos, de la English Electric Valve, que actua como obturador. Una parte de la luz que penetra en el dispositivo optico es recibida por un fotomultiplicador que rige la apertura del tubo obturador por mediacion de un selector de amplitudes. Este artificio permite efectuar la seleccion entre la luz debida a la senal y la debida al ruido del tubo de Thomson. Solo la primera ocasiona La apertura del tubo obturador. Como la duracion de dicha apertura es sumamente corta, el cociente senal/ruido de este conjunto detector es suficientemente alto para obtener una imagen de la pantalla terminal del tubo obturador por medio de un aparato fotografico abierto constantemente.

    Report presents the current state-of art in developing safety reports and probabilistic safety analyses for WWER NPPs operated in Russia. Development of these reports and implementation of PSA is done according to the requirements outlined in the basic document `General Statement on Ensuring safety (OPB). At present submitting safety reports to the regulatory authority GAN RF is mandatory for licensing NPPs. Current state of safety reports for the operating WWER type NPPs meets generally the effective Russian standard engineering documents which are approaching the international standards. A mechanism ensuring correspondence of the safety documentation to the current state of operating units is determined. Modernization of the operating units is underway, it is aimed to eliminate existing deviations from requirements of the modern standards in the field of NPP safety

    In fabricating components for use in reactors, two basic factors are of decisive importance, namely the need for very high quality, which allows of only a very small percentage of defective parts, and the very high cost of each of the components. Because of these two considerations, control during fabrication has to follow an operating curve with a very high power and, provided that this condition is fulfilled, the number of pares destroyed in each inspection has to be kept to a minimum. The usual methods, which are based on the determination of the error of first kind, cannot be used because they are generally not effective enough. Cave has developed a method in which the size of the samples and the limits of control are established as a function of the errors of first and second kind. This method, although applicable, is not really practicable for the inspection of reactor components since the samples required are too large. The present paper presents a method which is similar to that of Cave but which relies on double sampling and thus considerably reduces the average size of the sample. (author) [French] La fabrication des elements constitutifs des reacteurs nucleaires presente deux caracteristiques essentielles, qui la conditionnent: la qualite superieure exigee reduit fortement le pourcentage des pieces defectueuses que l'on peut admettre et le prix de revient de chaque element est tres eleve. Etant donne ces deux conditions, les controles en cours de fabrication doivent se multiplier a mesure que l'on avance dans la chaftie des operations; d'autre part, il faut que le nombre des pieces detruites lors de chaque inspection soit aussi reduit que possible, tout en respectant la premiere condition. Les methodes habituelles de controle qui visent essentiellement a limiter le risque inherent a la premiere condition ne sauraient etre appliquees car, d'une maniere generale, elles ne sont pas suffisamment efficaces. Cave a mis au point une methode dans laquelle la taille des echantillons et le degre de controle sont determines en fonction des risques inherents a la premiere et a la deuxieme condition. Bien que cette methode soit applicable, elle est fort peu pratique quand il s'agit de controler des pieces de reacteurs, car les echantillons qu'elle exige sont de dimensions excessives. Le memoire expose une methode analogue a celle de Cave mais qui consiste a etablir un double echantillonnage dans lequel la taille moyenne de l'echantillon est beaucoup plus reduite. (author) [Spanish] La fabricacion de componentes que han de ser empleados en reactores nucleares presenta dos caracteristicas fundamentales que condicionan el proceso: la exigencia de una calidad muy elevada que limita a valores muy bajos el porcentaje de piezas defectuosas admisibles, y el coste muy alto de cada uno de los componentes. Estas dos condiciones obligan a que el control durante la fabricacion posea una curva de operacion con potencia muy elevada, y, por otra parte, a que el numero de piezas destruidas en cada inspeccion sea un pequeno como se pueda, siempre que se cumpla la condicion anterior. Los metodos usuales de control, basados en fijar el riesgo de primera especie, no son aplicables, ya que en general su eficacia no es suficiente. Cave ha desarrollado un metodo en que, tanto el tamano de las muestras como los limites de control, se fijan en funcion de los riesgos de primera y segunda especie. Este metodo, si bien es aplicable, resulta poco practico en el control de componentes para reactores, ya que se necesitan muestras de un tamano excesivamente grande. En el presente trabajo se desarrolla un metodo semejante al de Cave, pero en el que se establece un muestreo doble, con lo que el tamano medio de la muestra es mucho mas reducido.

    F{sup 18}, a 110-min half-life, positron emitter was studied as a possible agent for brain-tumour localization. It was prepared in a nuclear reactor by thermal neutron irradiation of Li{sub 2}CO{sub 3} (Li{sup 6} (n, {alpha}) H{sup 3}, O{sup 16}(H{sup 3}, n) F{sup 18}). Tissue studies in mice bearing subcutaneously-transplanted ependymomas indicated that labelled sodium fluoride (NaF{sup 18}) gave excessive concentrations in bone and was therefore unsuitable as a brain-scanning agent. However, labelled potassium fluoborate (KBF{sup 18}{sub 4}) showed good preferential uptake in tumour compared with brain, uptake ratios ranging from 8 to 11. No excessive concentrations were found in other organs in either mice or cats. Toxicity studies were carried out in mice and rabbits at levels of 300 mg/kg and 120 mgAg respectively. No adverse effects were observed provided the solution was neutralized to a physiological pH. The chemical amounts needed for patient scanning were less than 0.5 mgAg of body weight. A comparative clinical study of 10 patients, each scanned with KBF{sup 18}{sub 4} and other isotopic agents, corroborated the findings of Askenasy et al. that this is a useful compound for brain-tumour localization. Intravenous injection was optimally performed 30 min before scanning at a dosage of 15 {mu}c/kg of body weight. Tissue samples of tumour and normal brain were obtained from one patient at operation. The uptake ratio was 3.5. While this is lower than that found in the mouse, it is still in a useful range. Blood samples obtained from patients at varying time intervals after injection yielded a blood clearance curve which had two time constants. The first was very rapid and the second slower. This sequence is typical of useful scanning agents. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont etudie la possibilite d'employer {sup 18}F, emetteur de positons ayant une periode de 110 min, pour localiser lcs tumeurs du cerveau. Cette substance a ete preparee dans un reacteur par irradiation de Li{sub 2}Co{sub 3} par des neutrons thermiques ({sup 6}Li (n, {alpha}){sup 3}H, {sup 15}O({sup 3}H, n){sup 18}F). Il ressort d'etudes faites sur des tissus de souris presentant des ependymomes implantes par greffes sous-cutanees que le fluorure de sodium marque (Na{sup 18}F) se concentre de maniere excessive dans les os et qu'il ne convient donc pas pour explorer le cerveau. Par contre, on a constate que le fluoborate de potassium marque (KBF{sup 18}{sub 4}) se concentrait nettement plus dans les tumeurs que dans le tissu normal du cerveau, les rapports de concentration allant de 8 a 11. Aucune concentration excessive n'a ete observee dans d'autres organes, tant chez les souris que chez les chats. Les auteurs ont fait des etudes de toxicite sur des souris et des lapins pour 300 mgAg et 120 mgAg' respectivement. Aucun effet nocif n'a ete observe tant que le pH de la solution etait maintenu a une valeur physiologique. Les quantites de substance necessaire pour proceder a la scintigraphie du sujet etaient inferieures a 0,5 mgAg de poids du corps. Une etude clinique comparative menee sur 10 patients, qui ont tous ete examines a l'aide de KBF{sup 18}{sub 4} et d'autres agents radioisotopiques, a confirme la conclusion d'Askenasy et autres: ce compose est utile pour localiser les tumeurs du cerveau. On a fait des injections intraveineuses dans des conditions optimales 30 min avant la scintigraphie, a raison de 15 {mu}c/kg de poids du corps. Des echantillons de tissus de tumeur et de tissus normaux du cerveau ont ete preleves sur un malade qui subissait une operation. Le rapport de concentration etait de 3,5. Bien que ce rapport soit inferieur a celui qui avait ete observe chez la souris, il n'en demeure pas moins convenable. L'examen d'echantillons de sang preleves sur des malades a divers intervalles apres l'injection a permis d'etablir une courbe d'elimination du sang a deux constantes de temps. La premiere etait tres rapide et la seconde plus lente, ce qui est caracteristique des bons agents de scintigraphie. (author) [Spanish] Los autores estudiaron la posibilidad de utilizar {sup 18}F (periodo: 110 min) para localizar tumores cerebrales. Prepararon este isotopo en un reactor por irradiacion de Li{sub 2}CO{sub 3} con neutrones termicos ({sup 6}Li (n, {alpha}){sup 3} H, {sup 16}O({sup 3}H, n) {sup 18}F). Los estudios realizados con tejidos de raton en el que se habfe transplantado epen- dimomas.por vCa subcutanea mostraron que el fluoruro de sodio marcado (Na{sup 18}F) se concentra excesivamente en los huesos y que, por tanto, no es adecuado para explorar el cerebro. Sin embargo, el tumor capto una proporcion mayor de fluoborato potasico marcado (KB{sup 18}F{sub 4}) que el tejido normal del cerebro; la razon de captacion fue de 8 a 11. En los experimentos efectuados con ratones y gatos no se observo ninguna concentracion excesiva en otros organos. Los autores efectuaron estudios de toxicidad sobre ratones y conejos con dosis de 300 mgAg y 120 mg/kg respectivamente. No se observo ningun efecto adverso cuando la solucion estaba neutralizada hasta alcanzar un pH fisiologico. La cantidad de productos quimicos necesaria para la exploracion fue inferior a 0,5 mg/kg de peso corporal. Un estudio clinico comparativo de 10 pacientes, explorados despues de administrarles KB{sup 18}F{sub 4} y otros agentes isotopicos, corroboro los resultados obtenidos por Askenasy y sus colaboradores, segun los cuales este compuesto es util para localizar tumores cerebrales. La inyeccion intravenosa dio resultados optimos cuando se administraron 15 {mu}c por kg de peso corporal 30 min antes de proceder a la exploracion. Se sacaron muestras de tumor y de tejido cerebral normal de un paciente durante la operacion. La razon de absorcion tumor/tejido normal fue de 3,5. Si bien este valor es inferior al correspondiente al raton, presenta todavia utilidad diagnostica. Las muestras de sangre extraidas a diferentes intervalos despues de la inyeccion permitieron trazar una curva de depuracion sanguinea con dos constantes de tiempo. La primera era muy breve y la segunda mas larga. Esta secuencia es tipica de los agentes de exploracion eficaces.

    A detector is described which consists of a 5-in diam. by 1/2 in thick sodium iodide crystal and a depth-focusing collimator. The collimator was designed initially for use in brain cortical blood-flow investigations using Xe{sup 133} but may be used with other soft gamma-emitting isotopes such as I{sup 125}. The collimator, which is constructed of lead, is 1/2-in thick and is of multichannel design. The focus is at 1.75 cm from the face of the collimator. The response in air to a point source on the central axis of the collimator falls to 10% of the maximum at {+-} 0.75 cm from the focus. The far field response in tissue is considerably better than in air due to high tissue attenuation of the soft gamma radiation. The response of the collimator to a point source in air and inside a skull is presented. The collimator has been used to measure local cortical blood flow in the brain using Xe{sup 133}. However, using I{sup 125}-tagged chemicals, the detection of cortical tumours and haemorrhages is possible using this apparatus. (author) [French] L'auteur decrit un detecteur constitue par un cristal de Nal (125 mm de diametre et 6 mm d'epaisseur) et un collimateur a focalisation profonde.

Le collimateur, a canaux multiples, est en plomb; il a une epaisseur de 6 mm. Son foyer est a 17,5mm de la face du collimateur. La reponse dans l'air pour une source ponctuelle placee sur l'axe central du co llimateur tombe a 10% de la valeur maximum a {+-} 7,5 mm du foyer. La reponse pour un champ eloigne est sensiblement meilleure dans les tissus que dans l'air, du fait de la forte attenuation des rayons gamma mous.

    A scintillation camera specifically designed for the study of the kinetics of the distribution of radioactive nuclides in the brain has been developed. This device employs two banks of 3/4 in x 1 in sodium iodide-thallium activated crystals, 63 crystals per bank arranged in a 7 x 9 close-packed array on 1-in centres. These banks can be placed so that both lateral views or one lateral and one P-A or A-P view can be obtained simultaneously. The field of view of each crystal is limited by a collimator consisting of nineteen tapered holes whose axes are all parallel. This design gives a response of nearly equal full-width at half height to a simulated tumour source at all distances up to 4 in from the front of the collimator. This response is sufficiently wide to avoid significant ''dead'' areas and yet narrow enough to permit accurate observation of the activity distribution within a very few minutes using normal tracer doses of iodine-131. Each crystal is optically coupled to its own photomultiplier in an integral package. The output pulses of the photomultipliers are analysed by discriminators and the information stored in digital form in a quarter of the memory of a 512-channel pulse-height analyser. Time coincident pulses from the various detectors can be accepted by this equipment so that losses are negligible. Read-out in several forms is available. In digital form either a typewritten record or punched paper tape can be obtained. The latter may be read back into the equipment for review. Analogue read-out is made on a large screen oscilloscope. The scope beam is defocused and two 63 point display rasters generated to correspond to the spatial location of the scintillation counters. Intensity modulation of the oscilloscope beam as well as background erasure is used to assist in visualizing the activity distribution. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont mis au point une chambre a scintillation specialement concue pour des etudes sur la cinetique de la repartition des radionucleides dans le cerveau. Ce dispositif utilise deux series de cristaux Nal(Tl) de 1,8 cm sur 2,5 cm, chaque serie comprenant 63 cristaux disposes sur 7 rangs de 9 cristaux selon un quadrillage de 2,5 cm de cote. Il est possible de placer les deux series de maniere a pouvoir obtenir simultanement, soit les vues sur les deux cotes, soit une vue laterale et une vue postero-anterieure (ou antero-posterieure). Le champ de vision de chaque cristal est limite par un collimateur a 19 orifices coniques dont les axes sont tous paralleles. Ce montage donne une reponse a une source continue dans une tumeur simulee, dont la largeur complete a mi-amplitude est presque egale pour toutes les distances jusqu'a 10 cm a partir de la face anterieure du collimateur. Cette reponse est suffisamment large pour eviter des zones 'mortes' significatives, tout en etant assez etroite pour permettre de faire une observation precise de la repartition de l'activite en quelques minutes, si l'on emploie des doses normales d'iode-131. Chaque cristal est optiquement couple a son propre photomultiplicateur. Les impulsions des photomultiplicateurs a la sortie sont analysees au moyen de discriminateurs; l'information est emmagasinee sous forme numerique dans un quart de la memoire d'un analyseur d'amplitude a 512 canaux. Cet ensemble peut accepter des impulsions coiencidant dans le temps et provenant des divers detecteurs; les pertes sont donc negligeables. La lecture peut se faire sous plusieurs formes. Sous une forme numerique, on peut obtenir, soit une feuille dactylographiee, soit une bande perforee en papier. Celle-ci peut etre repassee dans l'appareil aux fins de controle. Sous forme analogique, la lecture se fait sur un oscilloscope a grand ecran. On defocalise le faisceau de l'oscilloscope et on produit deux series de 63 images dont chacune correspond a un cristal. La modulation de l'intensite du faisceau de l'oscilloscope et l'elimination du bruit de fond facilitent la visualisation de la repartition de l'activite. (author) [Spanish] Los autores han construido una camara de centelleo especialmente concebida para el estudio de la cinetica de la distribucion de radionuclidos en el cerebro. Este dispositivo contiene dos series de cristales de yoduro de sodio activados por talio, de 3/4 x 1 pulg; cada serie comprende 63 cristales dispuestos en 7 filas de 9 cristales con una distancia de 1 pulg entre los centros. Las dos series pueden colocarse de modo que sea posible obtener vistas-simultaneas de dos caras laterales, o de una cara lateral y una posteroanterior (anteroposterior). El campo de vision de cada cristal esta limitado por un colimador de 19 canales conicos cuyos ejes son paralelos entre sf. Este montaje da una respuesta practicamente uniforme a todas las distancias hasta 4 pulg desde el frente del colimador, para una fuente contenida en un tumor simulado. Esta respuesta es suficientemente amplia para evitar zonas 'mu ertas' significativas y ,al mismo tiempo,bastante estrecha para poder observar con exactitud la distribucion de la actividad en unos pocos minutos si se emplean dosis normales de yodo-131 como indicador. Cada cristal esta acoplado opticamente a su propio fotomultiplicador, constituyendo una unidad. Los impulsos de salida de los fotomultiplicadores son analizados mediante discriminadores; la informacion se almacena en forma numerica en una cuarta parte de la memoria de un analizador de amplitud de impulsos de 512 canales. Como este aparato puede aceptar impulsos coincidentes en el tiempo o procedentes de varios detectores, las perdidas son despreciables. La lectura puede efectuarse de distintas maneras. En forma numerica puede obtenerse ya sea un regristro dactilografiado o una cinta de papel perforado. Esta ultima puede introducirse en el aparato para una nueva lectura. En forma analogica, la lectura se hace en un osciloscopio de gran pantalla. Se desenfoca el haz del osciloscopio y se producen dos reticulados de 63 puntos para corresponder a la situacion espacial de los contadores de centelleo. La modulacion de la intensidad del haz del osciloscopio y la supresion de la actividad de fondo facilitan la visualizacion de la distribucion de actividad.

    Since the human brain is bilaterally symmetrical and possesses unusual resistance to many substances in the blood stream, it has been suggested that radioactive scanning for this region may be best performed with an instrument made especially for the purpose. A scanner is described which was designed to be used as a screening device for brain-tumour suspects, so that high sensitivity, simplicity of patient preparation and ease of reading and interpretation were primary requirements. Brownell's equation relating radioactivity concentration to diameter of resolution indicates that the required radioactivity per unit volume is inversely related to the sixth power of the resolution diameter. Accordingly, a maximum permissible diameter of resolution was chosen consistent with satisfactory localization of areas of increased radioactivity. Precise delineation was not required. Since the number of detected disintegrations per unit time is an inverse function of the square of distance, two detectors each with a short ''focus'' are used rather than one detector which must be made optimal for the mid-sagittal plane. The 2-in-diam. crystal and photomultiplier assemblies are mounted opposite one another on a rigid scanning frame, each fitted with a seven-hole (hexagonal) focusing collimator designed for a 1.5-cm resolution diameter and a focus 8 cm from the collimator face. The frame scans rectilinearly in the sagittal plane. The scan record is presented as an asymmetrogammagram and as separate left and right photographic two-dimensional displays. Pulses from each detector are fed to an amplifier-discriminator circuit and thence to a difference circuit which prints a left or right marker to indicate a predominance of left or right radioactivity. Pulses from each amplifier-discriminator circuit also go to count-rate meters which in turn activate lamps mounted in a light-tight housing. The two lamps, the light intensity of which is a function of activity measured by the respective detectors, are mounted on a common arm moved by Selsyn motors synchronous with Selsyn generators on the detector frame, thus permitting the use of a remotely placed recording unit. Cylindrical lenses focus the lamp sources on film, both right and left records being made simultaneously on an 11-in x 14-in X-ray film. Although the operator may adjust mean lamp current to a proper predetermined value over a wide range of count rate, a great deal of latitude is given the operator by the inclusion of three sheets of film in the cassette each providing optimum contrast for a different range of count rate. Patients are given 350 {mu}c of I{sup 131} human serum albumin after previous treatment with Lugols solution and scanning is performed between 24 and 72 h later. A single scan is usually sufficient. Scans on some patients are repeated in the antero-posterior direction. On 653 patients 789 scans were made from September 1961 to November 1962. There was a confirmed diagnosis in 109 of these patients, 88 having tumours. Twenty-three of 30 glioblastomas and 15 of 19 meningiomas were clearly located. (author) [French] Du fait de la symetrie du cerveau humain et de sa resistance particuliere a de nombreuses substances du flux sanguin, il semble que la scinti- graphie du cerveau puisse etre effectuee dans les meilleures conditions avec un appareil specialement concu a cet effet. L'auteur decrit un scintigraphe destine a verifier la presence de tumeurs du cerveau, qui repond en premier lieu aux conditions suivantes; haute sensibilite, simplicite des operations de preparation du patient et facilite de lecture et d*interpretation. La relation de Brownell entre la concentration de radioactivite et le diametre de resolution montre que la quantite de radioactivite necessaire par unite de volume est inversement proportionnelle a la sixieme puissanee du diametre de resolution. C'est pourquoi on a choisi le plus grand diametre de resolution compatible avec une localisation satisfaisante des zones de radioactivite accrue. Une delimitation precise n'etait pas necessaire. Le nombre de desintegrations detectees par unite de temps variant en fonction inverse du carre de la distance, on utilise deux detecteurs ayant chacun une courte focale, de preference a un detecteur qui doit etre regle sur le plan median du cerveau. Le detecteur a cristal de 5 cm de diametre et le photomultiplicateur sont montes l'un en face de l'autre sur un cadre rigide, chacun d'entre eux etant muni d*un collimateur a focalisation a sept canaux (hexagonal) ayant un diametre de resolution de 1.5 cm et un foyer a 8 cm de sa face anterieure. L'exploration est faite lineairement dans le plan sagittal. Le scintigramme se presente sous la forme d'un asymetrogammagramme et de representations photographiques separees, gauche et droite, a deux dimensions. Les impulsions de chaque detecteur passent dans un circuit amplificateur-discriminateur, puis dans un circuit differenciateur qui imprime un signe a gauche ou a droite pour indiquer une predominance de radioactivite a gauche ou a droite. Les impulsions sortant de chaque circuit amplificateur-discriminateur passent egalement dans des debitmetres qui, a leur tour, actionnent des lampes dans une chambre noire. Les deux lampes, dont l'intensite lumineuse est proportionnelle a l'activite mesuree par le detecteur correspondant, sont montees sur un meme support mu par des moteurs Selsyn synchronises avec des generateurs Selsyn fixes sur le cadre du detecteur, ce qui permet d'utiliser un dispositif enregistreur place a une grande distance. Des lentilles cylindriques focalisent la lumiere emise par les lampes sur un film, les enregistrements a droite et a gauche etant effectues simultanement sur un film a rayons X de 36 x 28 cm. Bien que l'operateur puisse regler le courant moyen des lampes a une valeur determinee a l'avance d'une gamme etendue de taux de comptage, il dispose d'une grande latitude grace a l'insertion dans le magasin de trois films donnant chacun le contraste optimum pour une gamme differente de taux de comptage. On administre aux patients 350 {mu}c d'albumine de serum humain marquee avec {sup 131}I, apres traitement prealable avec la solution de Lugols, et on procede a la scintigraphie apres un delai de 24 a 72 h. Normalement, un seul scintigramme est suffisant. Dans certains cas, on en fait un second dans la direction antero- posterieure. De septembre 1961 a novembre 1962, l'auteur a effectue 789 scintigrammes sur 653 patients. Dans 109 cas, le diagnostic a ete confirme, 88 patients presentant des tumeurs. L'auteur a nettement localise 23 glioblastomes sur 30, et 15 meningiomes sur 19. (author) [Spanish] Como el cerebro humano tiene una simetria bilateral y es excepcionalmente resistente a muchas de las sustancias contenidas en la corriente sanguinea, su exploracion radiactiva debe efectuarse con un instrumento especialmente concebido para este fin. El autor describe un dispositivo para la deteccion de tumores cerebrales, cuyas principales ventajas son : elevada sensibilidad, sencillez de las operaciones de preparacion del paciente y facilidad de lectura e interpretacion de los datos. La ecuacion de Brownell, que establece la relacion entre la concentracion de radiactividad y el diametro de resolucion, indica que la radiactividad necesaria por unidad de volumen es inversamente proporcional a la sexta potencia del diametro de resolucion. En consecuencia, el autor eligio un diametro maximo compatible con la localizacion satisfactoria de las regiones de mayor radiactividad, siendo posible prescindir de una delimitacion muy exacta. Como el numero de desintegraciones detectadas por unidad de tiempo varia en funcion inversa del cuadrado de la distancia, se utilizan dos detectores de 'foco' corto en lugar de un solo detector que deberia adaptarse a un valor optimo para el plano sagital medio. Los cristales de 2 pulg de diametro, unidos a sus fotomultiplicadores, estan montados frente a frente en un bastidor rigido de exploracion ; cada uno de ellos esta dotado de un colimador enfocado de siete canales hexagonales, con un diametro de resolucion de 1, 5 cm a una distancia focal de 8 cm desde su plano anterior. El aparato explora rectilineamente el plano sagital. El registro se presenta en forma de un gammagrama asimetrico y de representaciones fotograficas bidimensionales separadas para el lado izquierdo y para el lado derecho. Los impulsos procedentes de cada detector pasan a un circuito amplificador-discriminado: y, de este, a un circuito diferenciador que imprime una seflal a la derecha o a la izquierda para indicar el predominio de la radiactividad en uno u otro de estos dos lados. Los impulsos procedentes de cada circuito amplificador-discriminador pasan tambien a integradores de impulsos que encienden lamparas montadas en una camara oscura. Las dos lamparas, cuya intensidad luminosa es funcion de la actividad medida por los respectivos detectores, estan montadas en un mismo brazo movido por motores sincronicos Selsyn, con generadores Selsyn montados sobre el bastidor del detector, lo que permite utilizar un dispositivo de registro situado a distancia. Varios lentes cilindricos enfocan la luz de las lamparas sobre pelicula radiografica de 11 x 14 pulg, obteniendose simultaneamente un registro del lado derecho y del izquierdo. El operador puede ajustar la intensidad media de la corriente que circula por la lampara a un valor previamente determinado en un amplio intervalo de intensidad de recuento, pero dispone de un vasto margen de trabajo, ya que puede introducir en el cargador tres peliculas, cada una de las cuales posee un contraste optimo para una gama diferente de intensidad de recuento. Entre 24 y 72 h antes de efectuar la exploracion se administran a los pacientes 350 {mu}c de seroalbumina humana marcada con {sup 131}I despues de un tratamiento con solucion de Lugol. Una sola exploracion suele ser suficiente. En ciertos casos la exploracion se repite en direccion anteroposterior. Entre septiembre de 1961 y noviembre de 1962 se efectuaron 789 exploraciones en 653 pacientes. Para 109 de ellos el diagnostico se confirmo: 88 tenian tumores. De 30 glioblastomas, se localizaron claramente23; de 19 meningiomas se localizaron 15.

    The high thermal fluxes, which are usual in the latest materials testing reactors, impose suitable paths for uniform heat transfer and a reliable heat removal avoiding bulk-vapour formation. Furthermore, to control the over-all swelling and reactor fuel behaviour, water-gap measurements will also be performed in post-irradiation experiments on spent fuel elements. For that purpose, a probe for measuring the 3-mm water-gap of the BR-2 fuel element over a 1-m length, based on the principle of ultrasonics, has been developed. In the case of post-irradiation experiments, the measuring probe should operate in a fuel element by being immersed in a water pool at a depth of at least 6 m. The probe can withstand prolonged immersion in water and is not affected by normal gamma-irradiation doses. Although operating on the usual pulse-reflection method, the system allows emitted and reflected pulses to be separated by a 10-MHz ferro-electric crystal with high inherent energy dissipation. Oscilloscope read-out can be used, whereby the time is displayed on the horizontal axis, the scanning speed being adjusted to bear a direct relation to the velocity of wave propagation, i.e. the gap distance. This type of read-out Is satisfactory where the number of measurements is restricted, but chart recorder read-out is obviously desirable. In this case, emitted and reflected pulses are shaped and fed to a time-voltage converter using transistor logic techniques. The instrument allows continuous adjustment of output zero for any arbitrary gap distance between 2 and 4 mm thereby permitting zero-centre recording. Furthermore, any desired 100-{mu}m gap distance variation can give a stable 1-V output voltage to a recorder. An accuracy of 5-{mu}m gap-distance variation is easily obtained. Several fuel elements have been measured. The results and reproducibility were very satisfactory. (author) [French] Etant donne que dans les plus recents reacteurs d'essai de materiaux les flux thermiques sont generalement eleves, il est indispensable de prevoir un transfert de chaleur uniforme et un refroidissement regulier empechant toute formation massive de vapeur. En outre, pour determiner le gonflement et le comportement general du combustible dans le reacteur, il faudra mesurer les espaces intercalaires dans les elements combustibles au cours de controles apres irradiation. A cette fin, on a mis au point une sonde fondee sur le principe des ultrasons, qui permet de mesurer les espaces intercalaires de 3 mm sur 1 m de long dans les elements combustibles du reacteur BR-2. Lorsqu'on procede a des experiences apres irradiation, la sonde doit pouvoir fonctionner dans un element combustible immerge dans un reservoir d'eau a une profondeur de 6 m au minimum. La sonde peut resister a une immersion prolongee dans l'eau et n'est pas endommagee par une irradiation gamma a des doses normales. Bien que le systeme soit fonde sur la methode classique de la reflexion des impulsions, il permet de separer les impulsions emises des impulsions reflechies au moyen d'un cristal ferroelectrique de 10 MHz a pouvoir eleve de dispersion de l'energie. Les resultats des mesures peuvent etre lus directement sur un oscilloscope: le temps est indique sur l'axe horizontal et la vitesse d'exploration est reglee de maniere a se trouver en relation directe avec la vitesse de propagation de l'onde, c'est-a-dire avec la distance intercalaire. Ce mode de lecture est satisfaisant lorsqu'on procede a un nombre limite de mesures, mais il est evidemment preferable d'enregistrer les resultats sur un graphique. Dans ce cas, les impulsions incidentes et les impulsions reflechies sont transmises a un convertisseur temps-tension au moyen d'un circuit logique transistorise. Cet appareil permet un ajustement continu du zero de sortie pour toute distance intercalaire choisie arbitrairement entre 2 et 4 mm, grace a quoi on peut obtenir un enregistrement autour d'un axe zero. En outre, toute variation de 100 {mu}m de la distance intercalaire fournit a un enregistreur une tension stable de sortie de 1 V. Il est facile de mesurer les variations des distances intercalaires avec une precision de 5 {mu}m. Les mesures ont ete faites pour plusieurs elements combustibles. Les resultats et la reproductibilite sont tres satisfaisants. (author) [Spanish] Los elevados flujos termicos que suelen alcanzarse en los recientes reactores de ensayo de materiales, exigen recorridos adecuados para lograr una transmisiun uniforme de calor y una disipacion segura del mismo, evitando asf la formacion de vapor en la masa. Ademas, a fin de controlar el hinchamiento y el comportamiento del combustible en el reactor, tambien debe medirse la capa de agua en experimentos realizados despues de la irradiacion, con elementos combustibles agotados. A tal efecto se ha disenado una sonda ultrasonica destinada a medir, en una longitud de 1 m el espesor de 3 mm de agua correspondiente al elemento combustible BR-2. En el caso de los experimentos posteriores a la irradiacion, es necesario trabajar con el elemento combustible sumergido en un tanque de agua, a profundidad no menor de 6 m. La sonda puede resistir una prolongada inmersion en agua, y no le afectan las dosis normales de radiacion gamma. Aunque proyectado conforme al metodo usual de reflexion de impulsos, el sistema permite separar pulsos emitidos y reflejados, usando un cristal ferro-electrico de 10 MHz, con elevada disipacion inherente de energia. Puede usarse un osciioscopio para la lectura, en cuyo caso el tiempo se representa en el eje horizontal, regulandose la velocidad de barrido de manera que sea directamente proporcional a la velocidad de propagacion de la onda, es decir, al espesor de la capa de agua. Este tipo de representacion da resultados satisfactorios cuando setrata de un numero limitado de mediciones, pero sin duda resulta mas conveniente el registro grafico. En este caso, se da a los impulsos emitidos y reflejados la forma deseada y se les inyecta en un convertidor tiempo-tension con circuitos logicos transistorizados. El instrumento permite un ajuste continuo del cero para cualquier espesor-arbitrario de la capa de agua entre 2 y 4 mm, con lo cual posibilita un registro con el cero en el centro de la escala. Ademas, cualquier intervalo deseado de 100 {mu}m puede dar una tension estable de 1 V a la salida para accionar un registrador. Se puede medir facilmente cualquier variacion en el espesor del agua con una precision de 5 {mu}m. Se han medido con este metodo varios elementos combustibles, y los resultados y la reproducibilidad fueron muy satisfactorios.

    The paper is a general one reviewing the detailed experimental and theoretical work that has been done during design, development and commissioning of the Windscale AGR. and in general support of development of Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactors for civil power production. The main purpose of the paper is to describe die considerable amount of work that has been necessary to develop adequate theoretical methods for calculating (a) flux distribution and reactivity balance in a complex reactor core, (b) power distribution in complex fuel geometries, and (c) the effect of irradiation on fuel cycles and power distribution. As an introduction reference is made to experimental information and theoretical methods available from work on uranium Magnox systems and the experimental information obtained from the British Industries Collaborative Experimental Programme (BICEP) both of which provided the starting point for development of theoretical methods applicable to AGRs. The approach to critical facility APEX and the zero energy reactor HERO have been used with regular lattice arrangements and with combinations of perturbers such as control rods in them to determine lattice parameters for AGR and to check the theoretical methods developed for dealing with heterogeneous reactor cores. The theoretical methods that have been developed and used to date are known as hetrecontrol and FTD2. Experiments were designed to check detailed features of these methods and measurements on a number of different sized ''reactor'' cores in APEX and HERO were analysed to determine a self-consistent set of lattice constants that fitted the experimental results. These purely empirical constants were the used in hetrecontrol and FTD2 to successfully plan commissioning and choice of the loading pattern for the Windscale AGR. Reference is made to experimental techniques that have been tested and those developed for the particular problems encountered. The methods examined for measurement of reactivity effects in APEX, HERO and AGR and for determining fine structure data and power distribution in the complex fuel assemblies are of particular interest. Current and future theoretical work is concentrated primarily on development of an alternative method to hetrecontrol and FTD2 for dealing with reactor cores after considerable burn-up of the fuel. The experimental programme on HERO is designed to test these methods with complex cores including plutonium bearing fuel. Additional information on the effect of plutonium will be derived from operation of AGR and physics measurements on fuel after irradiation. (author) [French] Le memoire relate les recherches experimentales et theoriques auxquelles on a procede lois de l'etude, de la realisation et de la mise en service du reacteur perfectionne refroidi par un gaz (AGR) de Windscale et, d'une facon generale, pour la mise au point d'un filiere de ce type en vue de la production d'energie electrique industrielle. Il decrit l'important volume de travail qui a ete necessaire en vue d'elaborer les methodes theoriques voulues pour calculer: a) la repartition du flux et l'equilibre de la reactivite dans un coeur complexe; b) la repartition de la puissance dans des geometries de combustible complexes-, c) les effets de l'irradiation sur le cycle du combustible et la repartition de la puissance. A titre d'introduction, le memoire resume la documentation experimentale et les methodes theoriques qui sont le resultat des recherches sur la filiere a uranium gaine de magnox et decrit la documentation experimentale obtenue par le programme commun des industries britanniques (BICEP); toutes ces donnees ont servi de point de depart pour l'elaboration de methodes theoriques applicables a l'AGR. On s'est servi de l'ensemble critique APEX et du reacteur HERO de puissance zero avec des configurations de reseau regulieres et diverses combinaisons de perturbateurs (notamment des barres de commande) pour calculer les parametres de reseau de l'AGR et verifier les methodes theoriques elaborees pour etudier des coeurs de reacteurs heterogenes. Ces methodes theoriques, utilisees jusqu'a ce jour, sont connues sous les noms dr 'hetrecontrol' et de 'FTD2'. Les experiences avaient pour but de verifier dans le detail les caracteristiques de ces methodes; on a analyse les mesures faites sur plusieurs coeurs de 'reacteur' de differentes dimensions dans les installations APEX et HERO pour determiner une serie coherente de constantes de reseau concordant avec les resultats des experiences. A ces constantes purement empiriques, on a applique ensuite les methodes <> et 'FTD2' pour preparer la mise en service sans accord d'AGR et le choix du regime de chargement de ce reacteur. Le memoire enumere les techniques experimentales qui ont ete essayees et celles qui ont ete elaborees pour resoudre certains problemes qui se presentaient. Particulierement interessantes sont les methodes ayant pour but de mesurer les effets sur la reactivite dans les installations APEX, HERO et AGR, et de determiner les donnees relatives a la structure fine ainsi que la repartition de la puissance dans les assemblages complexes. Les recherches theoriques actuelles et futures sont axees principalement sur la mise au point d'une methode capable de remplacer 'hetrecontrol' et 'FTD2' pour les etudes sur des coeurs de reacteur apres qu'une bonne partie du combustible a 'brule'. Le programme d'experiences avec l'installation HERO a pour but de verifier ces methodes au moyen de coeurs complexes contenant du plutonium. On compte obtenir des renseignements supplementaires sur l'effet du plutonium au cours du fonctionnement d'AGR et a la suite de mesures de physique sur le combustible irradie. (author) [Spanish] La memoria describe los trabajos experimentales y teoricos que se han ejecutado durante el diseno, el desarrollo y la puesta en marcha del reactor AGR de Windscale y para facilitar el desarrollo de nuevos tipos de reactores refrigerados por gas para la produccion de energia nucleoelectrica con fines civiles. La principal finalidad de la memoria es describir el considerable trabajo que entrano el desarrollo de metodos teoricos adecuados para calcular: a) la distribucion del flujo y el balance de la reactividad en un cuerpo complejo, b) la distribucion de la potencia en geometrias complejas del combustible, y c) el efecto de la irradiacion sobre los ciclos del combustible y la distribucion de la potencia. A modo de introduccion se menciona la informacion experimental y los metodos teoricos que constituye el resultado de los trabajos con sistemas uranio-magnox, y los datos experimentales comunicados por el British Industries Collaborative Experimental Programma (BICEP), en los que se baso el desarrollo de los metodos teoricos que se han aplicado a los reactores AGR. Con el fin de determinar loe parametros del reticulado del AGR y comprobar los metodos teoricos establecidos para cuerpos de reactor heterogeneos, se ha empleado el conjunto critico APEX y el reactor HERO de energia nula, tanto con reticulados normales como con combinaciones de perturbadores tales como barras de control. Los metodos teoricos desarrollados y empleados hasta ahora se conocen por el nombre de 'hetrecontrol' y 'FTD2'. Se prepararon experimentos para comprobar algunos detalles de las caracteristicas de estos metodos y se han analizado mediciones efectuadas en las instalaciones APEX y HERO con varios cuerpos de 'reactor' de diversos tamanos con el fin de determinar series coherentes de constantes reticulares que concuerden con los resultados experimentales. Seguidamente, a estas constantes puramente empiricas se aplicaron los metodos 'hetrecontrol' y 'FTD2' para planear la puesta en marcha y elegir el esquema de carga del reactor AGR de Windscale. La memoria menciona las tecnicas experimentales comprobadas y las que se han desarrollado para resolver los problemas particulares que se presentaron. Reviste particular interes el examen de los metodos de medicion de los efectos de la reactividad en APEX, HERO y AGR, y para determinar los datos relativos a la estructura fina y a la distribucion de la potencia en los conjuntos combustibles complejos. Los trabajos se concentran principalmente en el desarrollo de un metodo capaz de sustituir al 'hetrecontrol' y al 'FTD2' , para los cuerpos de reactor cuando el combustible haya alcanzado un grado de combustion considerable. La finalidad del programa experimental con la instalacion HERO es precisamente comprobar estos metodos con cuerpos complejos, inclusive con combustible que contenga plutonio. La explotacion del reactor AGR y las mediciones fisicas que se realicen con el combustible despues de la irradiacion permitiran obtener datos adicionales sobre el efecto del plutonio.

    The use of ionizing radiation for processing foodstuffs is being studied in the USSR, particularly in connection with the following: (a) prevention of sprouting in potatoes and onions; (b) disinfestation of foodstuffs; (c) suppression of microbe activity; either sterilization or partial inhibition of microflora activity to prolong the shelf life of various foodstuffs; and (d) alterations in the ripening time of fruits and vegetables after picking and/or harvesting. The paper reports the status of work performed in the USSR during recent years on each of these general topics and the prospects for the practical application of irradiation to a number of products are considered. Among the products in question are meat and meat products (raw and cooked semi-finished products, sausage products), domestic poultry, various fruits and vegetables, potatoes, grain, dehydrated products (dried fruits and vegetables, dried food concentrates). Practical methods of irradiating potatoes and onions to prevent sprouting during storage have already been developed, and very soon it will be possible to use radiation for the disinfestation of foodstuffs on an industrial scale. (author) [French] Les etudes sur l'utilisation des rayonnements ionisants pour la conservation des produits alimentaires se poursuivent en URSS.dans les domaines suivants: a) prevention de la germination des pommes de terre et des oignons; b) desinsection des produits alimentaires; c) elimination de l'activite biologique des micro-organismes en vue de la sterilisation ou de l'elimination partielle de l'activite biologique de la microflore en vue de prolonger les delais de conservation de divers produits alimentaires; et d) modifications des delais de maturite apres recolte des fruits et legumes. Pour chacun de ces domaines, l'auteur indique l'etat des travaux effectues en URSS pendant ces dernieres annees et examine les perspectives d'utilisation des rayonnements pour un certain nombre de produits. Au nombre de ces produits figurent la viande et les preparations a base de viande (produits crus ou semi-prepares, charcuterie), volaille, divers fruits et legumes, pommes de terre, cereales, produits deshydrates (fruits et legumes seches, produits alimentaires secs concentres). Outre les methodes d'irradiation qui ont deja ete mises au point pour empecher la germination des pommes de terre et des oignons lors du stockage, il sera possible de recourir prochainement a l'irradiation pour la desinsection industrielle de produits alimentaires.

En la memoria se expone el estado de los trabajos efectuados en la Union Sovietica en los ultimos anos y se examinan las perspectivas del empleo de las radiaciones para un cierto numero de productos. Entre estos figuran la carne y sus derivados (productos crudos y semipreparados, charcuteria), aves de corral, diversas frutas y verduras, patatas, cereales, productos deshidratados (frutas y verduras secas, productos alimenticios secos concentrados). Ademas de las tecnicas de irradiacion ya elaboradas para impedir la germinacion de las patatas y las cebollas durante su almacenamiento, podra recurrirse proximamente a la irradiacion para la desinsectacion industrial de productos alimenticios.
