A fuel pin hold-down and spacing apparatus for use in nuclear reactors is disclosed. Fuel pins forming a hexagonal array are spaced apart from each other and held-down at their lower end, securely attached at two places along their length to one of a plurality of vertically disposed parallel plates arranged in horizontally spaced rows. These plates are in turn spaced apart from each other and held together by a combination of spacing and fastening means. The arrangement of this invention… 
Fixed-Exponent Exponentiation
The minicomputer network for control of the dedicated synchrotron radiation storage ring BESSY
The architecture and the system software aspects of the BESSY-control system are presented and a description and summary of the organization and the features of the control system software is given.
A parallel framework for the analysis of metal-flanged rectangular-aperture arrays
A rigorous methodology is introduced, based on Petri nets and recursive bisection, in order to migrate a standard integral equation code toward parallel multiprocessor machines, following a data-flow design and a multiple-level parallelism.
Optimal Wiring of Movable Terminals
This paper considers the problem of local wiring in a VLSI chip and is able to find polynomial time optimal algorithms while, for others, it proves NP-completeness and suggest efficient heuristics.
Activation Algorithms for the Micro-manipulation and Assembly of Hexagonal Microparts on a Programmable Platform
A programmable platform and plastic hexagonal microparts, both with embedded circular conductive electrodes are studied. Two layouts for the allocation of the electrodes on the hexagons are proposed,
Use of Superconducting Bearings to Measure the Polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation
Measurements of the polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation are expected to significantly increase our understanding of the early universe. We present a design for a CMB
