An interactive code for a pressurized water reactor incorporating temperature and Xenon feedback
Heath, Gregory Garver
MetadataShow full item record
An interactive computer model of a highly enriched pressurized water reactor was developed, using the applicable plant parameters from the Shippingport Atomic Power Station. The point reactor kinetics equations for one delayed neutron precursor group were linearized using small perturbation theory. The model included both moderator and Xenon-135 reactivity feedback effects, as well as an automatic reactor protection and average reactor coolant temperature control system. The thermal response of the model plant was simulated for normal operating transients induced either by control rod or turbine load changes. The post shutdown Xenon transient response was also modeled. The interactive program was coded in FORTRAN-IV language, and the simulation program was coded in IBM CSMP-III language.

Two-dimensional polygonal representation of maps for use with autonomous vehicle route planning / Roger K. Diehl, Robert B. McGhee, Michael J. Zyda. Diehl, Roger K.; McGhee, Robert B.; Zyda, Michael J. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1986-06); NPS52-86-016We present in this study a two-phase approach to the generation and maintenance of a polygonal cartographic database useful for autonomous vehicle route planning. The database is generated non-interactively from available ...
