A Boiling phenomenon in a liquid flow field is known as forced-convection boiling. We numerically investigated the boiling system on a cylinder in a flow at a saturated condition. To deal with such a phenomenon, we developed a numerical scheme based on the pseudopotential lattice Boltzmann method. The collision was performed in the space of central moments (CMs) to enhance stability for high Reynolds numbers. Furthermore, additional terms for thermodynamic consistency were derived in a CMs framework. The effectiveness of the model was tested against some boiling processes, including nucleation, growth, and departure of a vapor bubble for high Reynolds numbers. Our model can reproduce all the boiling regimes without the artificial initial vapor phase. We found that the Nukiyama curve appears even though the focused system is the forced-convection system. Also, our simulations support experimental observations of intermittent direct solid-liquid contact even in the film-boiling regime.

Thermoelectric materials for highly efficient devices must satisfy conflicting requirements of high electrical conductivity and low thermal conductivity. In this paper, we studied the crystal structure and phonon dynamics of tetrahedrites (Cu,Zn)(Sb,As)S. The results revealed that the Cu atoms in a planar coordination are rattling, which effectively scatter phonons. These findings provide a new strategy for the development of highly efficient thermoelectric materials with planar coordination.

This study presents a back analysis based on three-dimensional finite element analysis in order to estimate the regional stress fields and the elastic moduli of a rock mass simultaneously from in situ measurements. In order to improve the accuracy of the estimation of three-dimensional stress field, heterogeneities in a rock mass consisting of geological layers with different elastic properties was considered. Back analysis was applied to determine the regional stresses for a broad field study that includes Tono Mine, the Shobasama Site and the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) Construction Site.

Here we report the new features and improvements in our latest release of the H-Invitational Database, a comprehensive annotation resource for human genes and transcripts. H-InvDB, originally developed as an integrated database of the human transcriptome based on extensive annotation of large sets of fulllength cDNA (FLcDNA) clones, now provides annotation for 120 558 human mRNAs extracted from the International Nucleotide Sequence Databases (INSD), in addition to 54 978 human FLcDNAs, in the latest release H-InvDB. We mapped those human transcripts onto the human genome sequences (NCBI build 36.1) and determined 34 699 human gene clusters, which could define 34 057 protein-coding and 642 non-protein-coding loci; 858 transcribed loci overlapped with predicted pseudogenes.

We report a resonant X-ray scattering study of the antiferromagnetic neptunium compounds NpCoGa and NpRhGa. Large resonant signals of magnetic dipole character are observed below the Nel temperatures. The signals at the Np edges confirm the behavior determined previously from neutron diffraction. On application of a magnetic field of 9 T along the  direction in NpRhGa, we observe a change in the population of different -type domains. We also observe a magnetic dipole signal at the Ga &K& edge, similarly to the reported UGa case, that can be interpreted within a semilocalized model as an orbital polarization of the Ga 4 states induced via strong hybridization with the Np 5 valence band. Quantitative analysis of the signal shows that the Ga dipole on the two different Ga sites follows closely the Np magnetic moment reorientation in NpRhGa. The ratios of the signals on the two inequivalent Ga sites are not the same for the different compounds.

An overview of the research and development of imaging bolometers giving a perspective on the applicability of this diagnostic to a fusion reactor is presented. Traditionally the total power lost from a high temperature has been measured using one dimensional arrays of resistive bolometers. The large number of signal wires associated with these resistive bolometers poses hazards not only at the vacuum interface, but also in the loss of electrical contacts that has been observed in the presence of fusion reactor levels of neutron flux. Infrared imaging video bolometers (IRVB), on the other hand, use the infrared radiation from the absorbing metal foil to transfer the signal through the vacuum interface and out from behind a neutron shield. The IRVB can provide hundreds of channels of bolometric signal in an image of the plasma radiation. Recently a prototype IRVB has been deployed on the JT-60U tokamak which demonstrates the ability of this diagnostic to operate in a reactor environment.

Diagnosis of the radiation from both the divertor and core plasma regions is a key issue for the study of impurities resulting from plasma-surface interaction in existing magnetic plasma confinement experiments and future fusion reactors. An infrared imaging video bolometer has been designed, fabricated and installed on the JT-60U tokamak. This diagnostic utilizes an IR camera to image the temperature change of a thin foil which is exposed to plasma radiation through an aperture resulting in an image of the incident plasma radiation absorbed by the foil. In the 2004-2005 experimental campaign intitial data was taken which was limited to 8-bit analog video data from ohmic and hydrogen neutral beam discharges due to inadequate shielding. The semitangential, wide-angle view of the plasma covers the entire poloidal cross-section and the divertor extending over 90 degrees toroidally. This preliminary data showed a strong radiation zone from the divertor that moved up into the core plasma as the discharge terminated in agreement with the data from the resistive bolometer arrays. For the current campaign we have upgraded the system by improving the shielding against neutrons, and magnetic field. This has enabled operation of the camera during high magnetic field and some high power deuterium neutral beam discharges. We also improved the triggering and data transmission system to acquire 14-bit digital data. This will allow processing of the IR camera data to produce images of the radiation brightness at the foil which can be viewed as a movie with a frame rate of 30 fps. This data is used to study the toroidal uniformity of the radiation from the divertor in JT-60U.

We report a resonant X-ray scattering study of antiferromagnetic uranium compounds UGa (=Ni, Pd, and Pt) at the Ga -edge. A large resonant signal is observed below the Nel temperatures. The azimuth dependence in both - and - polarization channels establishes that the resonant signal has the symmetry of the magnetic dipole. This resonance with the band electrons is interpreted within a semi-localized model as an orbital polarization of the Ga states induced through strong hybridization with U valence level. These results demonstrate that resonant magnetic X-ray scattering at the anions, taken in combination with symmetry arguments, can be used to determine the configuration of the U moments and provide information about the hybridization.

A dose calculation system for providing accurate dose distribution in a patient body is under developing for supporting radiotherapy using photons and electrons. In this system, a sophisticated human model, a precise accelerator head model, and a Monte Carlo calculation will be utilized to perform realistic simulation. The dose distribution is calculated by this system on the ITBL computer at the dose calculation center, and the related data are transferred through a network. This system is intended to support the quality assurance of current treatments carried out in Japan. Further, this system is planned to apply to advanced radiotherapy. The project started on November 2003 and is scheduled to continue for five years. Prototypes of some parts constituting the system have been already developed, and the fundamental features on the radiation fields have been investigated. On the basis of the fundamental investigation, the final system will be designed and constructed.

In UNiGa which shows antiferromagnetic ordering below = 86 K with 0.75 /U, we observed resonant magnetic reflections using synchrotron X-ray tuned the incident photon energy near M-edge of U and K-edge of Ga, and the large enhancement about 10 at just resonant energy of Ga K-edge although Ga is a nonmagnetic element. It is considered that the origin of the magnetic resonant scattering intensity at Ga K-edge is the Ga-4 orbital polarization induced by the 5 orbital polarization at the neighboring U atom due to the hybridization.

The crystal structure, lattice strain due to the antiferromagnetic ordering and magnetic form factor in the itinerant 5 compounds UTGa (T: Ni, Pd, Pt) have been studied by neutron scattering. High-resolution powder diffraction revealed that the tetragonality of the U-Ga layers increases with the ionic radius of the transition metal element T. The observed antiferromagnetic reflections can be well explained with the Nel-type structure for UNiGa, whereas UPtGa has the antiferromagnetic stacking of the ferromagnetically ordered uranium moments in the -plane. The orbital contributions in the magnetic form factor are reduced from the free ion value, especially for UNiGa. This suppression shows a strong correlation with the bulk magnetic susceptibility. The tetragonality of the U-Ga layers is a sensitive measure of the nearest neighbour interaction, the lattice anomaly, and the orbital contribution and suggests that orbital degrees of freedom may play an important role for the magnetic properties in these itinerant 5 antiferromagnets.
