Yucca Mountain Project - Argonne National Laboratory Annual Progress Report, FY 1994

Yucca Mountain Project - Argonne National Laboratory Annual Progress Report, FY 1994

Date: February 1995
Creator: Bates, John K.
Description: This document reports on the work done by the Nuclear Waste Management Section of the Chemical Technology Division (CMT), Argonne National Laboratory, in the period October 1993-September 1994. Studies have been performed to evaluate the performance of nuclear waste glass and spent fuel samples under unsaturated conditions (low volume water contact) that are likely to exist in the Yucca Mountain environment being considered as a potential site for a high-level waste repository. Tests with simulated waste glasses have been in progress for over eight years and demonstrate that actinides from initially fresh glass surfaces will be released as a result of the spallation of reacted glass layers from the surface, as the small volume of water passes over the waste form.

Unsaturated Glass Testing for DOE Program in Environmental Restoration and Waste Management: Annual Report, October 1989 - September 1990

Unsaturated Glass Testing for DOE Program in Environmental Restoration and Waste Management: Annual Report, October 1989 - September 1990

Date: January 1991
Creator: Bates, John K.
Description: A program has been established for DOE Environmental Restoration and Waste Management (EM) to evaluate factors that are likely to affect waste glass reaction in an unsaturated environment typical of what may be expected for the candidate Yucca Mountain repository site. This report covers progress in FY 1990 on the following five tasks.

Operational Health Physics Training

Operational Health Physics Training

Date: June 1992
Creator: Moe, H. J. & Vallario, Edward J.
Description: This revised publication updates a previous report (ANL-7291) initially published in 1965, entitled Radiation Safety Technician Training Course which was intended to complement on-the-job monitoring training for Health Physics Technicians. Sections include basic information concerning atomic structure and other useful physical quantities, natural radioactivity, the properties of alpha, beta, gamma, x rays and neutrons, and the concepts and units of radiation dosimetry (including SI units).

Gasification of Chars Produced Under Simulated in situ Processing Conditions Quarterly Report: April-June 1976

Gasification of Chars Produced Under Simulated in situ Processing Conditions Quarterly Report: April-June 1976

Date: 1976?
Creator: Fischer, J.; Lo, R.; Young, J. & Jonke, A. A.
Description: This effort is being directed toward support studies for the national endeavor on in situ coal gasification. This task involves the investigation of reaction-controlling variables and product distributions for the gasification of both coals and chars utilizing steam and oxygen. Included in this task is the investigation of the effects of using brackish water as the water supply. The high-pressure char gasification system has been received from the manufacturer and is currently undergoing testing. The types of experiments that would be most useful in their studies have been discussed with two of the three laboratories carrying out field tests of in-situ gasification.

Speciation of Radionuclides in Natural Groundwaters, Annual Report: October 1986 through September 1987

Speciation of Radionuclides in Natural Groundwaters, Annual Report: October 1986 through September 1987

Date: February 1988
Creator: Doxtader, M. M.; Beitz, J. V.; Reed, Donald Timothy & Bates, John K.
Description: Two ultrasensitive laser techniques, laser photoacoustic spectroscopy (LPAS) and laser-induced fluorescence (LIF), are being developed for the detection and speciation of trace levels of actinides in solutions typical of those expected in a high-level waste repository. An LPAS system was set up for these studies. Experiments were carried out to determine the detection limits of plutonium and americium in solution. Concurrently with the LPAS work, LIF studies were carried out on uranyl ion and curium in solution.

Lithium/Iron Sulfide Batteries for Electric-Vehicle Propulsion and Other Applications Progress Report for October 1979-September 1980

Lithium/Iron Sulfide Batteries for Electric-Vehicle Propulsion and Other Applications Progress Report for October 1979-September 1980

Date: February 1981
Creator: Barney, Duane L.
Description: This report covers the research, development, and management activities of the programs involving high-performance lithium-aluminum/iron sulfide batteries at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and at contractors' laboratories during the period October 1979 through September 1980. These batteries, which are being developed for electric-vehicle propulsion and stationary energy storage applications, consist of vertically oriented prismatic cells with one or more inner positive electrodes of FeS or FeS2 facing negative electrodes of lithium-aluminum, and molten LiCl-KCl electrolyte.
