Intermodal freight planning at the multi-state corridor level : state of the practice and future directions by Billy M Williams( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the completion of the Interstate highway system the transportation planning focus has changed. Fiscal constraints preclude system expansion at the pace needed to support continued robust economic growth. Therefore, attention in the public sector has shifted to getting more productivity out of the existing modal infrastructure through improvements in system operation and management. This shift from capital construction to asset management is also motivated by increased emphasis at all governmental levels on minimizing the adverse environmental and societal effects of transportation activities. In concert with these public sector forces has been the emergence of a vibrant and highly competitive global marketplace. International trade and transportation agreements have opened the door to continued explosive growth in global commerce. The successful global enterprises are characterized by efficient logistics involving just-in-time inventory systems and a strong emphasis on customer service. The transport demands of international corporations are forcing transportation service providers to be more efficient and responsive. The combined effect of these public and private sector forces is a sea change in the way the transportation system is planned, designed, and deployed. A major element of this transportation paradigm shift involves a view of the modal systems as components of a single, integrated transportation system where each mode plays a role based on its inherent strengths. This view motivates a search for technical and institutional improvements to enhance the "seamless" flow of goods and people between the modes. In this emerging intermodal era, there will be increasing opportunities for the public and private sectors to make worthwhile investments in intermodal facilities and technology. It follows, therefore, that planning attention will be focused on improving intermodal interconnectivity. Also, the public sector will be faced with important transport policy decisions, such as carrier regulation/deregulation, truck size and weight restriction changes, and continued consolidation of the major rail carriers. Planners and decision makers will need reliable data and transportation systems analysis tools to evaluate intermodal project and policy alternatives. Within this overall global transportation system context, this report focuses on the freight transportation planning for a major corridor. The Interstate 81 corridor is a case in point. I-81 runs from upstate New York to Tennessee through Pennsylvania, the Maryland and West Virginia panhandles and Virginia and is characterized by a high level of truck travel over much of the corridor. In spite of this corridor focus, several of the conclusions drawn in this report are relevant for freight transportation planning in general

Participation in the US Department of Energy Reactor Sharing Program. Annual report, September 30, 1993--September 29, 1994( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of the DOE supported Reactor Sharing Program is to increase the availability of university nuclear reactor facilities to non-reactor-owning educational institutions. The educational and research programs of these user institutions is enhanced by the use of the nuclear facilities. Several methods have been used by the UVA Reactor Facility to achieve this objective. First, many college and secondary school groups toured the Reactor Facility and viewed the UVAR reactor and associated experimental facilities. Second, advanced undergraduate and graduate classes from area colleges and universities visited the facility to perform experiments in nuclear engineering and physics which would not be possible at the user institution. Third, irradiation and analysis services at the Facility have been made available for research by faculty and students from user institutions. Fourth, some institutions have received activated material from UVA for use at their institutions. These areas are discussed further in the report

Microstructural evolution in elastically stressed systems. Final report( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results, which have been compared to numerical simulations and found to be in very good agreement, predict that diviations in composition on the order of several atomic percent (measured with respect to equilibrium compositions) are possible at the interface. Interfacial compositions are strongly time dependent and are also influenced by the stress state

The University of Virginia Reactor Facility is an integral part of the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering and is used to support educational programs in engineering and science at the University of Virginia and at other area colleges and universities. The University of Virginia Research Reactor (UVAR) is the highest power (two megawatts thermal power) and one of the most utilized university research reactor in the mid-Atlantic states. A major objective of this facility is to support educational programs in the region. The University of Virginia has received support under the US Department of Energy (DOE) Reactor Sharing Program every year since 1978 to assist in meeting this objective. This report documents the major educational accomplishments under the Reactor Sharing Program for the period September 1991 through August 1992. This report is also to final report under this contract. Previous annual reports should be consulted if any information from those periods is desired. Additional information about the programs conducted at UVA under this contract may be found in the yearly requests for additional funds which have been submitted
Study of the embedded atom method of atomistic calculations for metals and alloys( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two projects were completed in the past year. The stability of a series of binary alloys was calculated using the embedded-atom method (EAM) with an analytic form for two-body potentials derived previously. Both disordered alloys and intermetallic compounds with the L1₀ and L1₂ structures were studied. The calculated heats of solution of alloys of Cu, Ag, Au, Ni, and Pt were satisfactory, while results for alloys containing Pd were too high. Atomistic calculations using the EAM were also carried out for point defects in hcp metals. By comparison with results in the literature, it was found that many body effects from the EAM significantly alter predicted physical properties of hcp metals. For example, the EAM calculations yield anisotropic vacancy diffusion with greater vacancy mobility in the basal plane, and imply that diffusion will start at a lower fraction of the melting temperature
Improved deterministic calculational methods for irregularly shaped shields. Final report, September 30, 1988--November 30, 1990( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new discrete nodal transport method has been developed for general two-dimensional curvilinear geometry by using a boundary-fitted coordinate transformation from the general 'physical' coordinates to square 'computational' coordinates. The metrics which appear in the transformed transport equation are expanded using a simple polynomial function, and the angular divergence term is treated in the same way it is treated in S{sub N} methods for curved geometries. Because the metrics of the transformation depend upon the computational coordinates, the technical details of the formal development of the nodal method differ from those of ordinary nodal methods for rectangular geometry. However, the computational process in the transformed rectangular coordinate system is very similar to that used in conventional discrete nodal transport methods. A discrete S{sub N} method also has been developed to solve the boundary-fitted coordinate transformed transport equation. Simple test problems for non-simple geometries were solved using the zeroth-order nodal method, the first-order nodal method, and the S{sub N} method for the same physical and computational grids. The results for the test problems studied showed that, for most performance criteria, the computational efficiency of the zeroth-order nodal method was the highest of the three methods

Systematic assembly homogenization and local flux reconstruction for nodal method calculations. Final report, January 1, 1990--September 30, 1992( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report is divided into three parts. The main mathematical development of the new systematic simultaneous lattice-cell and fuel-assembly homogenization theory derived from the transport equation is summarized in Part I. Also included in Part I is the validation of this systematic homogenization theory and the resulting calculational procedures for coarse-mesh nodal diffusion methods that follow from it, in the form of their application to a simple one-dimensional test problem. The results of the application of this transport-equation-based systematic homogenization theory are summarized in Part II in which its superior accuracy over traditional flux and volume weighted homogenization procedures and over generalized equivalence theory is demonstrated for small and large practical two-dimensional PWR problems. The mathematical development of a second systematic homogenization theory -- this one derived starting from the diffusion equation -- is summarized in Part III where its application to a practical two-dimensional PWR model also is summarized and its superior accuracy over traditional homogenization methods and generalized equivalence theory is demonstrated for this problem
Vapor scavenging by atmospheric aerosol particles( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An understanding of the migration and motion of bacteria in a fluid phase and near solid surfaces is necessary to characterize processes such as the bioremediation of hazardous waste, the pathogenesis of infection, industrial biofouling and wastewater treatment, among others. This study addresses three questions concerning the prediction of the distribution of a population of bacteria in a fluid phase and the motion of bacteria near a solid surface: Under what conditions does a one-dimensional phenomenological model for the density of a population of chemotactic bacteria yield an adequate representation of the migration of bacteria subject to a one-dimensional attractant gradient? How are the values of transport coefficients obtained from experimental data affected by the use of the one-dimensional phenomenological model and also by the use of different descriptions of bacterial swimming behavior in a mathematically rigorous balance equation? How is the characteristic motion of bacteria swimming in a fluid affected by the presence of a solid phase? A computer simulation that rigorously models the movement of a large population of individual chemotactic bacteria in three dimensions is developed to test the validity of a one-dimensional phenomenological model for bacterial migration in a fluid
