The issue of waste management has been studied simultaneously along with the development of the ARIES heavy ion driven inertial fusion energy (IFE) concept. Options for waste management include disposal in repositories, recycling, or clearance from regulatory control, following a reasonable cooling period. Here, we are concerned with the feasibility of(More)

• In most cases, candidate liquids generate multi-thousand tonnes of high-level waste. • Tangential injection scheme results in highest WDR. • Pb and LiPb are more radioactive than Sn and Flibe. • Online removal of transmutation products could allow tonnes of liquid materials to be disposed as low-level waste or preferably, released for use in similar(More)
We have developed a software suite to predict protein structures from sequence through the integration of multiple non-commercial programs. The Army and DoD medical and scientific communities will be able to use this software to annotate structures of sequenced pathogenic and host genomes. Such structural predictions can be used in therapeutic and vaccine(More)
As nuclear power expands, technical, economic, political, and environmental analyses of nuclear fuel cycles by simulators increase in importance. To date, however, current tools are often fleet-based rather than discrete and restrictively licensed rather than open source. Each of these choices presents a challenge to modeling fidelity, generality,(More)
Solid modeling engines are capable of faceting CAD models but may facet each face independent of adjacent faces. Regions of the resulting model have gaps between faces of their boundaries. An algorithm is described to seal faceted CAD models such that the boundary of neighboring faces has the same discretization along their shared edges. The algorithm works(More)
