Topics in the first volume include differential electrochemical mass spectrometry to characterize direct alcohol fuel cells, characterizing and modeling interfaces in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells, neutron radiography for investigating reaction patterns in direct methanol fuel cells, local in situ diagnostics for channel and land area using submillimeter-resolved transient techniques, and laser-optical methods for transport studies in low temperature fuel cells.
He said these research reactors could be used for education and training, neutron activation analysis, radioisotope production and neutron radiography.
A wide range of additional information about the lost foam process is included in the appendices, which include Casting Design Checklist for LFC; Coating Quality Control; Foam Pattern Quality Control Procedures; Troubleshooting Guide for Lost Foam Pattern Molding; and a CD with videos of neutron radiography and real-time x-ray mold filling.
For instance, while the facility performs neutron radiography for NASA and local automakers -- such as imaging where carbon deposits build up in a car's fuel injectors -- Burn says, "we only provide such unique services when you can't get them any other way.
Researchers from NIST, the University of Melbourne, and the University of Missouri at Columbia have demonstrated a new form of neutron radiography that produces greatly enhanced images of fine structural details in test samples with relatively low levels of radiation.
