Numerical Modeling Of Magnetic Fields For Mirror Neutron Search Experiment, Adam Johnston May 2020

Numerical Modeling Of Magnetic Fields For Mirror Neutron Search Experiment, Adam Johnston

Pursuit - The Journal of Undergraduate Research at the University of Tennessee

This paper will outline the configuration of 3D magnetic field model simulated from electric current sources using MATLAB. The model is using 3D arrays allowing for quick and accurate numerical approximations of Bio-Savart integrals, of error < , modeling the behavior of a magnetic field due to current carrying wires. We will discuss the development of a 3D magnetic field configuration produced by the current carrying wires around a large 2.5 m diameter vacuum beam tube in the proposed mirror neutron search experiment at High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The simulations demonstrate that the magnetic field with uniformity better than ± 2.5 mG that will allow for optimal results in experiment within the controlled range of net magnetic field magnitudes |B| 500 mG and in the large vacuum tube along 20-m neutron flight path can be achieved for an approximately 6 cm radius section at the center of the tube.

Stability And Evolution Of Planar And Concave Slopes Under Unsaturated And Rainfall Conditions, Arash Hassanikhah, Eric C. Drumm Jan 2020

Stability And Evolution Of Planar And Concave Slopes Under Unsaturated And Rainfall Conditions, Arash Hassanikhah, Eric C. Drumm

Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science Publications and Other Works

Natural slopes are often observed to have a concave, convex, or a combination concave/convex profile, yet constructed slopes are traditionally designed with planar cross-sectional geometry. In this paper, the stability of two planar slopes was compared with that of companion concave slopes, designed to have similar factors of safety (FOS) under gravity loading. The stability of these slopes was then investigated in response to a suction event followed by a precipitation event, and it was shown that both the planar and the concave slopes experienced similar changes in stability. Additional analyses were conducted with a simulated erosion mechanism to ...


Experimental Study Of Crack Propagation In Single Crystal Halite (Rock Salt) Using Digital Image Correlation Techniques, Tyler C Galyon, Amirsalar Moslehy, Khalid A. Alshibli Jan 2020

Experimental Study Of Crack Propagation In Single Crystal Halite (Rock Salt) Using Digital Image Correlation Techniques, Tyler C Galyon, Amirsalar Moslehy, Khalid A. Alshibli

Civil and Environmental Engineering Reports

Cavities in deposits of halite below the earth’s surface have been used by the energy industry to store nuclear waste and petroleum due to its impermeable and self-healing material characteristics. During excavation and service, stresses applied on the cavity walls by surrounding material can cause fracturing that can damage boreholes and cause contaminants to leech out of the cavity. Halite single crystals are homogenous, anisotropic crystalline materials that exhibit different compressive strength characteristics when stresses are applied to different crystallographic orientations. Crystallographic orientations parallel to [1 0 0], 19º to (1 0 0) in (0 1 0), and 30º ...

High Resolution Validation Of Next Generation Turbulent Flow Models Using Neutron Beams, Laser Fluorescence, And Cryogenic Helium, Landen G Mcdonald May 2019

High Resolution Validation Of Next Generation Turbulent Flow Models Using Neutron Beams, Laser Fluorescence, And Cryogenic Helium, Landen G Mcdonald

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

Turbulent fluid flow is an incredibly unpredictable subject that continues to confound scientists and engineers. All of the empirical data that has been the basis of conventional turbulent computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models for decades only extends to roughly the equivalent turbulence created when Michael Phelps swims in a pool. The problem is that this data is then extrapolated out many orders of magnitude in order to design cruise ships, airplanes, and rockets which operate in significantly more turbulent flow regimes. This creates an incredible degree of uncertainty in the design process that demands over-engineering and increased expenditures.

The development ...
