Successful fusion also requires that the product of three factors -- a plasma's particle density, its confinement time
, and its temperature -- reaches a certain value.
Remember that the managerial flexibility confinement time
is in fact exercised by the farmer, but intuitively and without some form of proper measurement of the financial value arising from this.
For confinement fusions, sufficient density and confinement time
are required as specified by Lawson criterion.
Positron confinement time
depends on trap imperfections.
In simulations we compare observations of the energy confinement time
with a third of the test particle confinement time
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.
Nevertheless, the value of the three combined parameters has increased many times over the past 10 years, with the most improvement in confinement time
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.
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.
