Fukushima and the Future of Nuclear Energy in the U.S.

RESC November 15 Program, PE CE Credit

by Dr. Richard Denning, University of Cincinnati

See the web site for details and reservations  www.resc.org

Dr. Denning will describe what actually happened in the Fukushima accident and provide an evaluation of the failure in safety practices that led to severe fuel damage. He will also discuss the expected health, environmental, and economic consequences of the event. Risk studies indicate that a similar “station blackout” accident could occur in the U.S. but at a very low probability. Dr. Denning will describe some differences in the capabilities of U.S. plants similar in design to the Japanese plants to mitigate the consequences of such an event. The NRC has issued their 90-day report with recommendations regarding upgrades that could be required in operating plants in the U.S. He will discuss the implications to plans for life extension of current plants, planned power updates, and prospects for new power plant designs that don’t require AC power to achieve safe shutdown.

UV Disinfection Treatment Facility at the Greater Cincinnati Water Works (RESC)

 RESC Program for October 18, 2011

by: Carel Vandermeyden P.E.

See web site for reservations

This presentation discusses the implementation of a new $30 million state-of-the-art Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Treatment Facility that the Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) started constructing in November 2010. When operational, GCWW will be the largest water utility in North America to use UV treatment following sand filtration and Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) absorption.

The 19,600 square foot UV facility, being built at GCWW’s Richard Miller Treatment Plant, will further enhance water quality and protect against potential disease-causing protozoa such as cryptosporidium. The addition of UV disinfection will provide a state-of-the-art multi-barrier treatment process to enhance water quality and further protect the public’s health.

 Time Travel Crime Fighting

License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology is one of the hottest technologies in the law enforcement community today through the power of capturing an actual photo of a suspect’s vehicle, sometimes even before they commit crimes. It has given investigators the ability to track suspects back in time.

The CPD is now leading the development and deployment of a large regional LPR network covering 12 counties in the Tristate Southwest Ohio/Southeast Indiana/Northern Kentucky (SOSINK) region. All LPR data in the SOSINK project will feeds into a central database that is accessible to numerous law enforcement agencies across the region for what is an unparalleled model for the broad regional deployment of LPR technology throughout the country.

Citywide Neighborhood Public Safety Camera Project

Mounted on buildings and bridges, and often mistaken for lights, the Neighborhood Public Safety Cameras began with the Western Corridor Safe City Project in early 2008 with a donation from the Target Corporation. In May, 2010, additional camera locations were installed in the uptown areas and to the West End area of District One. The latest phase was completed in October, 2010, in the Western Corridor.

All cameras have full pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) functionality. All of the cameras operate on a wireless network in 4.9GHz Public Safety Band or 18/23 GHz Point to Point, and also utilize the City’s existing high speed fiber network.

This talk outlines the challenges of a human Mars mission, including radiation protection, counteracting the effects of weightlessness, psychological factors, reliability, and others. We will also examine what propulsion systems might be used, the possible use of nuclear systems for propulsion and power, in situ propellant production, propellant depots, and other advanced technologies. Finally, we will discuss why the human exploration and settlement of Mars is a must.

Jerry’s first job was at Bell Aerosystems where he worked on testing various rocket engines, including the engine for the ascent stage of the Apollo lunar module. Later he worked for 39 years at GE Aircraft Engines in Evendale, Ohio, before retiring in 2008.

Jerry has a lifelong interest in space travel and is a member of several space related organizations, including the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the National Space Society, the Planetary Society, and is a founding member of the Mars Society. He is currently the chairman of the Ohio chapter of the Mars Society.

This talk will provide an introduction to nanoscale materials and devices and is intended for a broad audience. We will start with current products and applications such as cosmetics and fabrics and then move on to possible future devices and applications such as carbon-nanotube transistors and nano-pore DNA sequencing.

Nano scale science and technology are expanding new fields in which materials and devices are created at the nanometer dimension scale, that is, at the level of atoms and molecules. This extremely small length scale creates different physical, optical, chemical, and mechanical properties, leading to new applications in consumer products, electronics, photonics, and medicine.

Dr. Thomas Mantei works in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Cincinnati (UC). He earned the BSEE degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the MSEE and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University.

The Electric Grid – Is Our Safety Net Under Threat?
by: Chris Kotting, Ohio PUC

Reservation: Online Reservation HERE
Newsletter: HERE (Program Details)
When: January 18, 2011 – Lunch @ 11:30 a.m.  Program @ 1:00 p.m.
Where: Evergreen Retirement Community, 230 W Galbraith Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45215   Ph: 513-948-2308

How long can you stand on one foot? How about standing on one foot, in a hurricane, with bags of sand being hung on your body in random locations every few seconds? The electric grid has been doing something like that for about 100 years.

The electric grid in North America is remarkably reliable, despite the operating conditions and the ever-increasing demands placed on it. We rely on it for much of our lives, and we will be relying on it more. How has the grid adapted to this, and how might it adapt in the future? What threats does it face from acts of nature and human action, whether malicious or merely stupid? What is being done to deal with those threats? Is Smart Grid (or “gridSmart”, “smart meters”, or any of a half-dozen other names) the solution, or part of the problem?

We’ll spend an hour talking about these kinds of questions. We’ll identify the greatest threats, both old and new. We’ll talk about how coming changes to how the grid operates will change the nature of the threats, and how we handle them.
