Energy Technology

Post by SHuLee » Tue Sep 27, 2011 1:41 pm

I am trying to find additional details about TRIUS involvement in Energy Technology, but haven't found much on the company's site. Does anyone know where I can find such info?

ShuLee, I don't know what they are involved with nowadays, but many years ago I had worked with one of the co-founders in the nuclear industry (I don't know if he is still associated with the company). So, at least at that time, I know he was involved with shielding and accident evaluations for nuclear reactors. I'd imagine that their involvement in Energy Technology has been in something related, but I really am not certain.

Yeah, I was real good friends with one of the owners, too, Dave. I don't think any of the original people are there any longer, but I believe that all the principles came from some sort of engineering or science background, not your typical IT or computer science training. Then, they also broke off and formed the other company, undertow, so who knows what-is-what now. In any case, as I said, I think the original people were heavily into engineering and science, but I don;t know what kind, if it was energy or something else.

It all sounds interesting, but I still can't find any specific information as to what they do, in the energy technology area. can someone point me to some specific links, or something?

* UPDATE *

I had sent a private message to the moderator about this and he/she responded to me. Although I still don't know what exactly TRIUS does in the energy technology area, I thought I might share their response with you. I hope I am not violating some sort of forums rule by doing so!

If there are any specific questions, we'll be more than happy to forward them to the appropriate individuals within TRIUS' organization.

Well, it sounds like the person i had worked with is still with the company - that's pretty much what i remember him working in, primarily in nuclear shielding.

Shulee, following up with my previous message, I found a link that might give you more information about the type of work they may be involved in. One of the co-authors of this study is a co-founder of trius and I worked with him, many years ago. I believe this was done for Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). The title of the study is,

"On-site radiation exposure in severe reactor accidents: Scoping study".

http://www.osti.gov/energycitations/pro ... id=6560349

As I said a couple of times already, the best way to find out what they are involved with nowadays would be to contact them directly.

Since I was searching on line, I got carried away... :-) I found a couple of other links to older nuclear work they have done. I'm sure there is more, but I've spent enough time on this. Here are the additional links:

Proceedings of the CSNI Specialist Meeting on Nuclear Aerosols in Reactor Safety
Karahalios, P. & Gardner, R. (Stone and Webster)
4th - 6th September, 1984 (Karlsruhe, Federal Republic of German)
http://www.oecd-nea.org/nsd/docs/1985/csni85-95.pdf (Page 508)


Beta heating in deposited film layers of radioactive aerosols (this is actually in Japanese!!!)
KARAHALIOS, P. (Stone & Webster) & WAINIO, K. (Stone & Webster)

That's some interesting work. Do you have any more recent links? I'm very much interested in these areas, in particular the beta-heating. Also, if you have a link in English, so I can read the document <smile>, it would be great!

Pleonat, unfortunately, I don't, but I'm sure you'll find more links if you google the appropriate keywords. We *all* have the same access to that ;-)

That's an old reference and the following are shown as authors of the study.

Warman, E.A.; Karahalios, P.; Celnick, J.; McInall, S.; Frank, S. (Stone and Webster Engineering Corp., Boston, MA (USA))

Which one was the co-founder of TRIUS?

Well, I still haven't been able to find a copy of the Beta Heating paper by P. Karahalios and K. Wainio in English. If anyone has a copy of it and could make it available to be I would be very appreciative.

Karahalios was the co-founder. Based on this web site's info, he is still around @ TRIUS.

Pleonat, see my earlier response in this thread. If Karahalios is indeed still around TRIUS, maybe you can ask the moderator of these forums to find out if he has a copy of this paper around. Also, I would imagine you could find it if you looked at the ANS meeting proceedings archives. Have you tried that?

This is the only thing we could find (looks like the original WP version). We'll see if a copy of the original published version is somewhere and scan and upload, if we find it, as well.
