157 A new electronic gain device for high-temperature applications1976-07This report deals with a new integrated thermionic device capable of withstanding ambient temperatures in excess of 500°C, which eliminates the problems associated with earlier versions. The history of the ITC (Integrated Thermionic Circuit) is traced along with Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LA...
158 A new model for virtual radiometers2012-07-08virtual radiometers; radiative fluxes; reverse monte-carlo ray tracing algorithm; modeling radiometersThere exists a general need to compare radiative fluxes from experimental radiometers with fluxes computed in Thermal/Fluid simulations. Unfortunately, typical numerical simulation suites lack the ability to predict fluxes to objects with small view angles thus preventing validation of simulation re...

163 A report to Idaho National Engineering Laboratory1987Three Texas lignites (Jewett, Big Brown, and Bastrap), weathered and fresh tar sand, weathered and fresh Gilsonite and weathered oil shale have been studied using Py-MS (pyrolysis mass spectrometry) and further analyzed using the SIGMA program.
164 A solvent extraction process for tar sand1987Sunnyside, Utah; Tar sand; Solvent extraction; Bitumen; East central Utah; Ore; Hydrocyclones; Pentane-deasphaltening; Rotary kiln steam strippers; OilA process has been investigated for solvent extraction of bitumen from Sunnyside, Utah, tar sands. The Sunnyside deposit, in east central Utah, has 1 to 2 billion barrels of geological reserves with a richness of 6 to 10 wt% bitumen. In this process, the ore is crushed and the bitumen is dissolved f...
