At temperatures of 3 keV observed in the Large Helical Device (LHD) experiment, the TRAN code predicts an energy confinement time
of 160 ms, which agrees with measured values (11).
36) On appeal, the court looked at the issues of: (1) whether it was error for the military judge not to instruct the members to consider Davidson's pretrial confinement in determining their sentence; (2) whether it was error for the staff judge advocate not to advise the convening authority to consider the pretrial confinement; and (3) whether it was illegal for the accused to serve more confinement time
than authorized under the UCMJ for the offense when his pretrial confinement was added to his adjudged confinement at hard labor.
Lawson showed that in order to achieve net power from a conventional electric power plant, the fusion plasma must be sustained at or above a temperature of about 5 keV such that the product of its density and confinement time
exceed a certain value.
The courts determine what we term "actual confinement time
," but YOPB decides whether the ward can be paroled before his or her date of maximum confinement.
Besides temperature, break-even requiresanother criterion: the product of plasma density and confinement time
, usually called the LAwson criterion.
section] 3585(b), and determined the statute required the DOJ to credit federal prisoners with state pretrial confinement time
not otherwise applied against another sentence.
Their confinement time
is cut short however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country.
The confinement time
in this experiment, 20 seconds, was less than the 60 seconds of the DCX-1 device, a conventional experiment chosen for comparison.
The energy confinement time
is about 10 ins, several times the usual empirical scaling.
5 MW of heating power from a combination of neutral beams, ECH and ICH sources and that the electron temperature has reached 10 keV and ion temperature of 2 keV at a density of 5 x 10(18) m3, with an energy confinement time
5 tau_skin where tau_E is the energy confinement time
and tau_skin is the time for the plasma current profile to redistribute at fixed current).
While the popularly known version states that the product of the fuel density and energy confinement time
must be at least 10[sup.
