  • Publication number: 20220270772
    Abstract: A system configured to monitor the structural health of reactor vessel internals of a nuclear reactor is disclosed herein. The system includes a memory configured to store historical information associated with past performance of the nuclear reactor, and an anomaly detection subsystem including a control circuit configured to receive a signal from a sensor. The anomaly detection subsystem is configured to determine, via the control circuit, a characteristic of a vibrational response of the reactor vessel internals based, at least in part, on the signal; access, via the control circuit, the historical information stored in the memory; compare, via the control circuit, the determined characteristic to the historical information stored in the memory; and determine, via the control circuit, a condition of the reactor vessel internals based, at least in part, on the comparison of the determined characteristic and the historical information.

  • Patent number: 10662464
    Abstract: Described herein are massively parallel sequencing methods for virus-derived therapeutics such as viral vaccines, including the PVS-RIPO vaccine. The methods allow for the determination of micro-heterogeneity and quantitation of low frequency sequence variants and in the case of PVS-RIPO, are expected to replace the monkey neurovirulence safety test (MNVT) and the mutant analysis by PCR and restriction enzyme cleavage (MAPREC) methods that are currently used to screen lots of RNA virus-derived therapeutics.

  • Patent number: 9951817
    Abstract: A system for utilizing a pressurized fluid includes first, second, and third coaxially disposed body members, each having a cylindrical shape. The third body member is movable relative to the second body member. The second body member has walls that define a cavity between the first and second body members and a passage within the second body member that directs pressurized fluid from a cavity to the third body member. A method of utilizing a pressurized fluid includes providing a coupling and a housing having a cavity defined therebetween, supplying pressurized fluid to the cavity, and providing a first passage that extends from the cavity to a first axially-facing surface of the non-rotating component. The cross-sectional area defined perpendicular to a local flow direction is configured for choked flow within the first passage.

  • Patent number: 9897008
    Abstract: A conduit assembly and method of utilizing the assembly generally extends along a centerline for detachable engagement to a component in an axial direction. The assembly may include a body having an internal, cylindrical, surface with a first surface portion located axially adjacent to a second surface portion. The first portion is circumferentially continuous and the second portion extends circumferentially by about 180 degrees or less. A saddle is axially aligned to the second portion and detachably connects to the body. The saddle extends circumferentially by about 180 degrees or more. A conduit is received in the body and rigidly secured to the body via the saddle. A circumferentially continuous sealing interface is carried between the first portion and the conduit, and is constructed and arranged to slide axially with respect to the first portion and the conduit.

  • Patent number: 8911194
    Abstract: This soft capture cradle is useful for moving an aircraft having a nose-wheel without contacting the strut, oleo or landing gear, only contacting the nose landing gear tire or wheel. The cradle comprises a front left capture gate; a front right capture gate; a forward motion safety bar; and a rear capture plate. A forward motion safety switch is connected to the forward motion safety bar. The switch is configured to disengage the throttle of an aircraft tug porter when the forward motion safety bar contacts the aircraft nose-wheel. The cradle also includes a means for moving the front left capture gate and front right capture gate between a cradle open position and a cradle closed position. The cradle further includes a means for moving the cradle between a cradle up position and a cradle down position.
