Abstract  

A rapid automated flow injection analysis (FIA) procedure was developed for efficient separation of Am and Pu from each other and from interfering matrix and radionuclide components using a TRU-resincolumn. Selective Pu elution is enabled via on-column reduction. The separation was developed using on-line radioactivity detection. After the separation had been developed, fraction collection was used to obtain the separated fractions. In this manner, a FIA instrument functions as an automated separation workstation capable of unattended operation.

Abstract  

Heat capacity and enthalpy increments of calcium niobates CaNb2O6 and Ca2Nb2O7 were measured by the relaxation time method (2–300 K), DSC (260–360 K) and drop calorimetry (669–1421 K). Temperature dependencies of the molar heat capacity in the form C pm=200.4+0.03432T−3.450·106/T 2 J K−1 mol−1 for CaNb2O6 and C pm=257.2+0.03621T−4.435·106/T 2 J K−1 mol−1 for Ca2Nb2O7 were derived by the least-squares method from the experimental data. The molar entropies at 298.15 K, S m 0(CaNb2O6, 298.15 K)=167.3±0.9 J K−1 mol−1 and S m 0(Ca2Nb2O7, 298.15 K)=212.4±1.2 J K−1 mol−1, were evaluated from the low temperature heat capacity measurements. Standard enthalpies of formation at 298.15 K were derived using published values of Gibbs energy of formation and presented heat capacity and entropy data: Δf H 0(CaNb2O6, 298.15 K)= −2664.52 kJ molt-1 and Δf H 0(Ca2Nb2O7, 298.15 K)= −3346.91 kJ mol−1.

Abstract

The heat capacity and the heat content of bismuth niobate BiNb5O14 were measured by the relaxation time method, DSC and drop method, respectively. The temperature dependence of heat capacity in the form C pm=455.84+0.06016T–7.7342·106/T 2 (J K−1mol−1) was derived by the least squares method from the experimental data. Furthermore, the standard molar entropy at 298.15 K S m=397.17 J K−1mol−1 was derived from the low temperature heat capacity measurement.

The main objective of the present research was to develop a methodology for assessment of resilience of residential buildings in Central Europe. The main purpose of the methodology is to enable to set performance levels in terms of resilience for new multifamily residential buildings. The paper describes a method of selection and development of the assessment criteria and the final structure of whole assessment scheme and presents examples of detailed evaluation using selected criteria.

Abstract  

The heat capacity and the enthalpy increments of strontium metaniobate SrNb2O6 were measured by the relaxation method (2-276 K), micro DSC calorimetry (260-320 K) and drop calorimetry (723-1472 K). Temperature dependence of the molar heat capacity in the form C pm=(200.47±5.51)+(0.02937±0.0760)T-(3.4728±0.3115)·106/T 2 J K−1 mol−1 (298-1500 K) was derived by the least-squares method from the experimental data. Furthermore, the standard molar entropy at 298.15 K S m 0 (298.15 K)=173.88±0.39 J K−1 mol−1 was evaluated from the low temperature heat capacity measurements. The standard enthalpy of formation Δf H 0 (298.15 K)=-2826.78 kJ mol−1 was derived from total energies obtained by full potential LAPW electronic structure calculations within density functional theory.
