ATLAS: a Proposal for a Precision Heavy Ion Accelerator at Argonne National Laboratory

ATLAS: a Proposal for a Precision Heavy Ion Accelerator at Argonne National Laboratory

Date: February 1978
Creator: Bollinger, L. M.
Description: The objective of the proposed Argonne Tandem-Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS) is to provide precision beams of heavy ions for nuclear physics research in the region of projectile energies comparable to nuclear binding energies (5-25 MeV/A). By using the demonstrated potential of superconducting radiofrequency technology, beams of exceptional quality and flexibility can be obtained. The system is designed to provide beams with tandem-like energy resolution and ease of energy variation, the energy range is comparable to that of approximately 50 MV tandem and, in addition, the beam will be bunched into very short (approximately 50 psec) pulses, permitting fast-timing measurements that can open up major new experimental approaches.

Autoradiographic Technique for Rapid Inventory of Plutonium-Containing Fast Critical Assembly Fuel

Autoradiographic Technique for Rapid Inventory of Plutonium-Containing Fast Critical Assembly Fuel

Date: October 1977
Creator: Brumbach, S. B. & Perry, R. B.
Description: A nondestructive autoradiographic technique is described which can provide a verification of the piece count and the plutonium content of plutonium-containing fuel elements. This technique uses the spontaneously emitted gamma rays from plutonium to form images of fuel elements on photographic film. Autoradiography has the advantage of providing an inventory verification without the opening of containers or the handling of fuel elements. Missing fuel elements, substitution of nonradioactive material, and substitution of elements of different size are detectable. Results are presented for fuel elements in various storage configurations and for fuel elements contained in a fast critical assembly.

Autoradiography as a Safeguards Inspection Technique for Unirradiated LWR Fuel Assemblies

Autoradiography as a Safeguards Inspection Technique for Unirradiated LWR Fuel Assemblies

Date: May 1978
Creator: Brumbach, S. B. & Perry, R. B.
Description: A nondestructive autoradiographic method is described which can provide a verification that rods in the interior of unirradiated LWR fuel assemblies contain low-enriched uranium. Sufficient absorber must be used to reduce contributions to image density by beta radiation from uranium-238 daughters. When appropriate absorbers are used, the density of the image of a uranium-containing fuel rod is proportional to the uranium-235 enrichment in that rod. Exposure times as short as 1.5 hours can be achieved by using fast film and intensifying screens. Methods are discussed for reducing contributions to the image density of any single rod from radiation produced by all other rods in the assembly. The technique is useful for detecting missing rods, dummy rods, and rods containing depleted uranium. These defects can be detected by visual inspection of the autoradiographs. In its present state of development, the technique is not sensitive enough to reliably detect the difference between the various uranium-235 enrichments encountered in current BWR fuel assemblies. Results are presented for field tests of the technique at BWR and PWR facilities.

Baseline Energy Consumption Forecasts for Transportation: A Review and Evaluation

Baseline Energy Consumption Forecasts for Transportation: A Review and Evaluation

Date: May 1976
Creator: Koppelman, Frank; O'Sullivan, Pat & Collum, Tom
Description: A baseline projection of energy consumption is needed to estimate the potential energy savings from proposed transport technology and operational improvements. The Reference Energy System projection by Brookhaven National Laboratories and that which Stanford Research Institute produced for Gulf Oil are reviewed here. Attention is focused on the growth rate assumptions of the forecasts and the allowances made for the sensitivity of transport demand and technological efficiency to fuel price changes. The alternative trajectories of energy use are examined for automobile, bus and intercity air and rail passenger travel, and also for freight movement. Little, if any, justification can be found for many of the assumptions used to estimate transport demand and energy intensiveness. The assumptions underlying the Brookhaven National Laboratories projections are more explicit on changes in energy efficiency and energy price and shifts in transport patterns. However, the relationship of automobile travel, the largest component, to energy price is not specified clearly. The Stanford projection is based on seemingly arbitrary assumptions about changes in travel patterns and energy efficiency with no reference to the market process which must bring them about. It is concluded that the Brookhaven projection is a reasonable interim benchmark. Its structure should improve by ...

Bay Springs Canal Surge Study, Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, Mississippi and Alabama: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Bay Springs Canal Surge Study, Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, Mississippi and Alabama: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Date: June 1978
Creator: Tate, Charles H., Jr.
Description: Partial abstract: "A 1:80-scale hydraulic model was used to study flow conditions in the canal downstream of the proposed Bay Springs Lock. The original design and plan of operation caused severe conditions in the canal and required modification (design 2) of the lock discharge system and lower approach geometry. Based on the results of this study, the design 2 diffuser and lower approach with a 2-min emptying valve schedule should provide satisfactory navigation conditions downstream of the project."

Benchmark Testing of the Finite-Strain Version of the LIFE-III Fast-Reactor-Element Code

Benchmark Testing of the Finite-Strain Version of the LIFE-III Fast-Reactor-Element Code

Date: November 1976
Creator: Shack, W. J.; Jankus, V. Z. & Billone, Michael C.
Description: A collection of benchmark problems is used to test the finite-strain formulation of the LIFE-III fast-reactor fuel-element code. Analytical solutions for thick-wall cylinders loaded by internal and external pressure, valid for arbitrarily large strains, are presented for a linear viscous material. Similar problems are formulated for a nonlinear material, and numerical solutions are obtained using the Runge-Kutta method for the integration of an ordinary differential equation. These solutions are then compared with the corresponding solutions obtained using the LIFE-III code. With a proper choice of the number of spatial regions and time steps, good agreement is obtained between the two sets of solutions. The results indicate that the structural-analysis portion of the revised LIFE-III is valid for large strains.

Biaxial Creep-Fatigue Behavior of Type 316H Stainless Steel Tube

Biaxial Creep-Fatigue Behavior of Type 316H Stainless Steel Tube

Date: April 1979
Creator: Majumdar, S.
Description: Biaxial creep-fatigue test data for Type 316 stainless steel tubes at 1100*Y are presented. The specimens were subjected to constant internal pressure and fluctuating axial strain with and without hold times in tension as well as compress ion. The results show that internal pressure significantly affects diametral ratchetting and axial stress range. Axial tensile hold is found to he more damaging than axial compressive hold even cinder a biaxial state of stress.

Bilinear Cyclic Stress-Strain Analysis for Incoloy 800

Bilinear Cyclic Stress-Strain Analysis for Incoloy 800

Date: 1977?
Creator: Maiya, P. S.
Description: This report describes the bilinear stress-strain analysis under cyclic loading conditions for the alloy Incoloy 800. Although the method for determining the bilinear stress-strain parameters is based on a procedure proposed in the RDT Standard F9-1 for inelastic analysis of Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF) components, the accuracy and consistency of results have been improved by an analytical technique, which also resulted in certain simplifications. The bilinear stress-strain parameters of solution-annealed Incoloy 800 (Heat HH7058A) under cyclic loading conditions at a strain rate of 8.6 x 10⁻⁵ s⁻¹, total strain range of 0.2 to 0.8 percent, and temperatures of room temperature to 593 degrees C (1100 degrees F) have been determined. The dependence of bilinear parameters on temperature and strain is discussed. The cyclic-hardening characteristics based on correlation of yield parameter k with accumulated plastic strain are also presented.
