The Comparative Investigation and Calculation of Thermo-Neutronic Parameters on Two Gens II and III Nuclear Reactors with Same Powers
Whereas in the third generation nuclear reactors,
dimensions of core and also the kind of coolant and enrichment
percent of fuel have significantly changed than the second
generation, therefore in this article the aim is based on a
comparative investigation between two same power reactors of
second and third generations, that the neutronic parameters of both
reactors such as: K∞, Keff and its details and thermal hydraulic
parameters such as: power density, specific power, volumetric heat
rate, released power per fuel volume unit, volume and mass of clad
and fuel (consisting fissile and fertile fuels), be calculated and
compared together. By this comparing the efficiency and
modification of third generation nuclear reactors than second
generation which have same power can be distinguished.
In order to calculate the cited parameters, some information
such as: core dimensions, the pitch of lattice, the fuel matter, the
percent of enrichment and the kind of coolant are used. For
calculating the neutronic parameters, a neutronic program entitled:
SIXFAC and also related formulas have been used. Meantime for
calculating the thermal hydraulic and other parameters, analytical
method and related formulas have been applied.
Pseudo-almost Periodic Solutions of a Class Delayed Chaotic Neural Networks
This paper is concerned with the existence and unique¬ness of pseudo-almost periodic solutions to the chaotic delayed neural networks (t)= —Dx(t) ± A f (x (t)) B f (x (t — r)) C f (x(p))dp J (t) . t-o Under some suitable assumptions on A, B, C, D, J and f, the existence and uniqueness of a pseudo-almost periodic solution to equation above is obtained. The results of this paper are new and they complement previously known results.
Neutron Flux Characterization for Radioisotope Production at ETRR-2
The thermal, epithermal and fast fluxes were
calculated for three irradiation channels at Egypt Second Research
Reactor (ETRR-2) using CITVAP code. The validity of the
calculations was verified by experimental measurements. There are
some deviations between measurements and calculations. This is due
to approximations in the calculation models used, homogenization of
regions, condensation of energy groups and uncertainty in nuclear
data used. Neutron flux data for the three irradiation channels are
now available. This would enable predicting the irradiation
conditions needed for future radioisotope production.
Lagrangian Geometrical Model of the Rheonomic Mechanical Systems
In this paper we study the rheonomic mechanical systems from the point of view of Lagrange geometry, by means of its canonical semispray. We present an example of the constraint motion of a material point, in the rheonomic case.
Analysis of Gamma-Ray Spectra Using Levenberg-Marquardt Method
Levenberg-Marquardt method (LM) was proposed to
be applied as a non-linear least-square fitting in the analysis of a
natural gamma-ray spectrum that was taken by the Hp (Ge) detector.
The Gaussian function that composed of three components, main
Gaussian, a step background function and tailing function in the lowenergy
side, has been suggested to describe each of the y-ray lines
mathematically in the spectrum. The whole spectrum has been
analyzed by determining the energy and relative intensity for the
strong y-ray lines.
Microwave Shielding of Magnetized Hydrogen Plasma in Carbon Nanotubes
We derive simple sets of equations to describe the microwave response of a thin film of magnetized hydrogen plasma in the presence of carbon nanotubes, which were grown by ironcatalyzed high-pressure disproportionation (HiPco). By considering the interference effects due to multiple reflections between thin plasma film interfaces, we present the effects of the continuously changing external magnetic field and plasma parameters on the reflected power, absorbed power, and transmitted power in the system. The simulation results show that the interference effects play an important role in the reflectance, transmittance and absorptance of microwave radiation at the magnetized plasma slab. As a consequence, the interference effects lead to a sinusoidal variation of the reflected intensity and can greatly reduce the amount of reflection power, but the absorption power increases.
Dust Acoustic Shock Waves in Coupled Dusty Plasmas with Kappa-Distributed Ions
We have considered an unmagnetized dusty plasma system consisting of ions obeying superthermal distribution and strongly coupled negatively charged dust. We have used reductive perturbation method and derived the Kordeweg-de Vries-Burgers (KdV-Burgers) equation. The behavior of the shock waves in the plasma has been investigated.
On the Solution of the Towers of Hanoi Problem
In this paper, two versions of an iterative loopless
algorithm for the classical towers of Hanoi problem with O(1) storage complexity and O(2n) time complexity are presented. Based
on this algorithm the number of different moves in each of pegs with its direction is formulated.
A Markov Chain Model for Load-Balancing Based and Service Based RAT Selection Algorithms in Heterogeneous Networks
Next Generation Wireless Network (NGWN) is
expected to be a heterogeneous network which integrates all different
Radio Access Technologies (RATs) through a common platform. A
major challenge is how to allocate users to the most suitable RAT for
them. An optimized solution can lead to maximize the efficient use
of radio resources, achieve better performance for service providers
and provide Quality of Service (QoS) with low costs to users.
Currently, Radio Resource Management (RRM) is implemented
efficiently for the RAT that it was developed. However, it is not
suitable for a heterogeneous network. Common RRM (CRRM) was
proposed to manage radio resource utilization in the heterogeneous
network. This paper presents a user level Markov model for a three
co-located RAT networks. The load-balancing based and service
based CRRM algorithms have been studied using the presented
Markov model. A comparison for the performance of load-balancing
based and service based CRRM algorithms is studied in terms of
traffic distribution, new call blocking probability, vertical handover
(VHO) call dropping probability and throughput.
Debye Layer Confinement of Nucleons in Nuclei by Laser Ablated Plasma
Following the laser ablation studies leading to a
theory of nuclei confinement by a Debye layer mechanism, we
present here numerical evaluations for the known stable nuclei where
the Coulomb repulsion is included as a rather minor component
especially for lager nuclei. In this research paper the required
physical conditions for the formation and stability of nuclei
particularly endothermic nuclei with mass number greater than to
which is an open astrophysical question have been investigated.
Using the Debye layer mechanism, nuclear surface energy, Fermi
energy and coulomb repulsion energy it is possible to find conditions
under which the process of nucleation is permitted in early universe.
Our numerical calculations indicate that about 200 second after the
big bang at temperature of about 100 KeV and subrelativistic region
with nucleon density nearly equal to normal nuclear density namely,
10cm all endothermic and exothermic nuclei have been
A Linear Use Case Based Software Cost Estimation Model
Software development is moving towards agility with use cases and scenarios being used for requirements stories. Estimates of software costs are becoming even more important than before as effects of delays is much larger in successive short releases context of agile development. Thus, this paper reports on the development of new linear use case based software cost estimation model applicable in the very early stages of software development being based on simple metric. Evaluation showed that accuracy of estimates varies between 43% and 55% of actual effort of historical test projects. These results outperformed those of wellknown models when applied in the same context. Further work is being carried out to improve the performance of the proposed model when considering the effect of non-functional requirements.
Study of Current Sheath Velocities in Tridimensional with Sahand Plasma Focus
The current sheath dynamics in plasma focus facilities
is the most important factors. In this paper the current sheath velocity
at three dimensional with Sahand plasma focus facility is
investigated. For this purpose the discharge is produced in argon gas
with deposited energy lying in the range of 20-37kJ. The current
sheath is monitored using two tridimensional magnetic probes. These
probes installed near the surface of the interior electrode (anode) at
125mm from the anode axis (pinch place). The effect of gas pressure
on the current sheath velocity also is investigated.
Evolution of the Hydrogen Atom: An Alternative to the Big Bang Theory
Elementary particles are created in pairs of equal and opposite momentums at a reference frame at the speed of light. The speed of light reference frame is viewed as a point in space as observed by observer at rest. This point in space is the bang location of the big bang theory. The bang in the big bang theory is not more than sustained flow of pairs of positive and negative elementary particles. Electrons and negative charged elementary particles are ejected from this point in space at velocities faster than light, while protons and positively charged particles obtain velocities lower than light. Subsonic masses are found to have real and positive charge, while supersonic masses are found to be negative and imaginary indicating that the two masses are of different entities. The electron-s super-sonic speed, as viewed by rest observer was calculated and found to be less than the speed of light and is little higher than the electron speed in Bohr-s orbit. The newly formed hydrogen gas temperature was found to be in agreement with temperatures found on newly formed stars. Universe expansion was found to be in agreement. Partial mass and charge elementary particles and particles with momentum only were explained in the context of this theoretical approach.
Existence of Solutions for a Nonlinear Fractional Differential Equation with Integral Boundary Condition
This paper deals with a nonlinear fractional differential equation with integral boundary condition of the following form: Dαt x(t) = f(t, x(t),Dβ t x(t)), t ∈ (0, 1), x(0) = 0, x(1) = 1 0 g(s)x(s)ds, where 1 < α ≤ 2, 0 < β < 1. Our results are based on the Schauder fixed point theorem and the Banach contraction principle.
