    The physical operation of nuclear radiation sensors is briefly reviewed. A description is given of a typical experimental measurement-system setup, which can be divided into two parts: the application-specific part (including the detector and its associated electronics) and the computer-interfaced part (consisting of a multichannel analyzer). A number of recent improvements in the system design ar... View full abstract»

    The finite-element method was used to calculate a rise in temperature at a fast-closing valve (FCV) blade during exposure to intense synchrotron radiation from a 53-pole wiggler at the 2.5-GeV Photon Factory storage ring. The results indicate a possible meltdown of the titanium-alloy blade within 0.1 s at a maximum beam current of 500 mA, making the vacuum protection function of the FCV ineffectiv...

    To detect instrument failures in a nuclear power plant, a failure detection and isolation (FDI) method based on the Kalman filter is developed. Each filter is designed to be insensitive to the failed measurements by decreasing the Kalman gain artificially. Since it is mainly dependent upon the dynamic model and averaged outputs, it can exactly indicate the direction of failures. Even though this c... View full abstract»

    The design of digital circuits tolerant to single-event upsets is considered. The results of a study in which an analytical model was used to predict the behavior of a standard resistively hardened latch are presented. It is shown that a worst-case analysis for all possible single-event upset situations (on the latch or in the logic) can be derived from studying the effects of a transient distribu...
