February 2014 TSK News

The month of February 2014 saw some interesting presentations. Michael Finley, Instructor, Pellissippi State Community College speaking on “The mathematics of sustainability” gave a sobering talk on sustainability. The example of deer overusing resources on an island and experiencing a population collapse is something that all humans need to heed. He said that for the cost of the Afganistan and Iraq wars we could put a solar panel on every house in the country.

Ted Wampler Jr.of Wampler’s Farm Sausage Company has descended from a long line of sausage makers but he has embraced modern technology.The collaboration between Wampler’s Farm and the Proton Power CHyP (Cellulose Hydrogen Power) System is impressive and it will benefit Wampler, Proton Power and the local farmers who produce switchgrass. Ted wants to be “off the grid” and right now Wamplers sometimes sells power and sometimes buys power. Wamplers has a large solar installation now and will soon be in commercial operation with their new Power CHyP (Cellulose

Hydrogen Power) System. Wamplers will not disclose the terms but they are currently operating the CHyP system like a pilot plant so Proton Power can get data for designing more and bigger plants.

Our final meeting in February was presented by LJ Robinson,FIRST Regional Director. She is a nurse who saw robot building as a valuable educational opportunity for kids and she did something about it. She described the FIRST Robotics Competition which is an annual event for high school students working along side professional mentors to design and build a robot. Teams will be given a parts kit including motors, batteries, and other components and are allowed to spend an additional $3,000 to create their robot. Student’s will then have 6 weeks to build the functioning robot to begin competitions.
FIRST Robotics is a very important and interesting program and there are opportunities for many people to make a contribution to the program.

February 2014 Programs

February 3, 2014 the speaker will be Michael Finley, Instructor, Pellissippi State Community College. The title of his presentation will be “The mathematics of sustainability”(PDH).

This presentation explores key concepts relevant to the mathematics of sustainability. A brief overview of mathematics and a clear understating of the definition of sustainability are salient to understanding why mathematics is an important element of sustainability. The correlation of mathematics and sustainability is explored using various examples, from global to local.

Michael has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alabama, BA in Mathematics from Roosevelt University and MS in Applied Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

we will have an opportunity to learn how sausage is made. Ted Wampler, Jr., President and COO of Wampler’s Farm Sausage Company will be the speaker. The title of his presentation will be “Wampler’s Farm Sausage – Energy Independence and Social Responsibility”(PDH).

The Technical Society hears about the technology of energy frequently but this is an opportunity to hear the perspective of a business executive who has been very active in the use of alternate energy sources. He will talk about the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) program, and how it began with solar power and led to the Proton Power CHyP (Cellulose Hydrogen Power) System. He will touch on solar power and will concentrate most on the CHyP, going through the install, operations, and the benefits.

Ted was the first recipient of the Loudon County Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Person of the Year Award which recognized the efforts made toward using more sustainable energy alternatives at the company. Wampler’s Farm Sausage also won the TennSEISA Solar Champion Award for 2012. The company won the Innovator Award at the 2013 Pinnacle Business Awards Gala. The Knoxville Zoo ‘s (ARiES Energy / Wampler’s Farm Sausage / Cades Cove BBQ and Elm Hill Hot Dogs) Solar Project has reached the final five to win the “Best Solar Collaboration Award” at the Solar Power Generation USA Congress . Currently, the company is installing the first commercial Proton Power CHyP (Cellulose Hydrogen Power) System in the world. The Proton System will power the “net zero grid connected” company with hydrogen made from biomass.
Ted, Jr. serves on the Tennessee Advisory Board of Directors of United Community Bank.

He has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from Tennessee Tech University.

January 2014 TSK News

Sometimes we need to be reminded about how much of a privilege it is to be able to attend meetings of the Technical Society. The quality of our programs is excellent and we have been able to get really outstanding speakers. The month of January is a good example. On January 13, 2014 historian, Ray Smith was our speaker. Ray has an extensive understanding and appreciation of the heritage of Y-12. He served for 16 years

that is currently very controversial and important. Also, Ray is certain that any more nuns who wish to penetrate the Y-12 perimeter will meet with much more serious resistance.

Our January 27 speaker, Gary Golden, is a world renown consultant on steam turbines and it was a privilege to

be able to hear his presentation. After listening to his talk on turbine failure I (secretary Bob Scott) will never look at a steam turbine the same again. The trace impurities in steam can build up and cause chemical stress corrosion cracking with the potential for disaster. Anyone who is working with turbines would have to be aware of Gary and his work to have a safe design.

January 2014 programs

The January 6, 2014 meeting is cancelled

due to portending inclement weather.

The talk

will consist of an overview of early Oak Ridge history including stories of how the East Tennessee location was selected and the predictions of the “Prophet of Oak Ridge.” Many Ed Westcott

historical images will form the basis of the visuals and be the backdrop for the stories of the history of Oak Ridge during the Manhattan Project. There will be mention of the Cold War era and today’s Oak Ridge missions.

A primary focus will be on the Y-12 National Security Complex but with some Oak Ridge National Laboratory history included as well. The nonproliferation efforts which are joint efforts of ORNL and Y-12 will be featured, time permitting.
With 43 years of experience at the Y-12 National Security Complex, Ray has developed an extensive understanding and appreciation of the heritage of Y-12’s history. Having served for 16 years in ever increasing levels of management responsibility, he has learned all the buildings on the site and their history. He has co-produced the award-winning and highly acclaimed Secret City DVD set that has become the definitive history of Oak Ridge.

January 20 no meeting ( Martin Luther King holiday)

January 27 Gary Golden will be the speaker. The title of his presentation will be “Steam Turbine and Generator Damage Mechanisms.”(PDH)

Will the steam turbines we rely on for our electricity need repair or even replacement in the near future? Can steam turbine generator life be extended for infrastructure needs or a retrofit? The discussion will be on steam path failure mechanisms such as stress corrosion cracking, corrosion, fatigue, erosion and creep. Since 90% of electric power production uses steam turbines, the failure mechanism becomes critical in the maintenance and life cycle. The types of damage along with prevention and detection will be presented.

Gary Golden has his own energy consulting practice. He was formerly with EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute) Generation and Nuclear Sectors specializing in Steam Turbines, Generators and Auxiliaries. He was the Technical Manager of Solar Augmented Steam Cycle Projects for retrofitting existing fossil fuel plants with Thermal Solar technology. Prior to joining EPRI he was a design engineer. His engineering background includes designing and testing power plants all over the world. Gary has served on the executive committee of the ASME Power Division as well as on their Turbine Generators and Auxiliaries committee and International Relations committee. He has been an officer for the ASME Oak Ridge, TN Section and has participated with Performance Test Code committees writing codes. Mr. Golden teaches courses on steam turbines generators and auxiliaries yearly for ASME. He has an ME degree from The University of Missouri.
