Accident Generated Particulate Materials and Their Characteristics -- A Review of Background Information

Accident Generated Particulate Materials and Their Characteristics -- A Review of Background Information

Date: May 1, 1982
Creator: Sutter, S. L.
Description: Safety assessments and environmental impact statements for nuclear fuel cycle facilities require an estimate of the amount of radioactive particulate material initially airborne (source term) during accidents. Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) has surveyed the literature, gathering information on the amount and size of these particles that has been developed from limited experimental work, measurements made from operational accidents, and known aerosol behavior. Information useful for calculating both liquid and powder source terms is compiled in this report. Potential aerosol generating events discussed are spills, resuspension, aerodynamic entrainment, explosions and pressurized releases, comminution, and airborne chemical reactions. A discussion of liquid behavior in sprays, sparging, evaporation, and condensation as applied to accident situations is also included.

Acidification of Geothermal Wells Laboratory Experiments - Geothermal Reservoir Well Stimulation Program

Acidification of Geothermal Wells Laboratory Experiments - Geothermal Reservoir Well Stimulation Program

Date: January 1, 1982
Creator: unknown
Description: This report describes the laboratory testing of the reactions of acetic, formic, hydrochloric, ad hydrofluoric acids with calcium carbonate, kaolin, sepiolite, and two formation materials at geothermal temperatures. In general, a workable test procedure was developed which provided information regarding the relative reactivities of selected minerals or formation materials with three of the four acids investigated. Tests with hydrochloric acrid were complicated by reactions of the acid with the test vessel materials and therefore, only very limited work could be done with this acid at the desired temperatures. In spite of these difficulties, information regarding the amount of soluble material in the various acids was obtained. From this under the different reaction conditions could be calculated. Additional information regarding the formation of solid secondary reaction products upon cooling of the reacted acid was also obtained. The implication of the mineral reactivities with the different acids and the formation of secondary solids on geothermal acidizing operations are discussed. In addition, some selected scale inhibitors (for calcium carbonate) were tested for their hydrothermal stability. Their efficiency in inhibiting the formation of calcium carbonate scale before and after aging at 500{degree}F was measured. The implications of the loss of efficiency of these materials ...

Agent Orange: Veterans' Complaints Concerning Exposure to Herbicides in South Vietnam

Agent Orange: Veterans' Complaints Concerning Exposure to Herbicides in South Vietnam

Date: June 25, 1982
Creator: Smith, Pamela W.
Description: From 1962 to 1971, the United States Air Force (USAF) sprayed various herbicide mixtures (chemicals that kill plants) in South Vietnam. The purpose of the spraying was to defoliate jungle growth to deprive the Communist forces of ground cover, and to destroy enemy crops to restrict food supplies. The most extensively used of these herbicide mixtures was known as Agent Orange, a 50:50 mix of two common herbicides called 1,4,5-T and 2,4-D (2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid). The third chemical present in the mixture in small amounts was TCDD, an inevitable by-product of the manufacture of 2,4,5-T. This chemical, called tetrachlorodibenzo-para-dioxin or simply "dioxin," is highly toxic to laboratory animals when administered in its pure form. CRS has been unable to locate any report of a human death from exposure to pure TCDD. This report discusses the human health effects that have occurred from exposure to TCDD, as well as related Congressional concerns.

ANOMALOUS REACTION MEAN FREE PATHS OF NUCLEAR PROJECTILE FRAGMENTS FROM HEAVY ION COLLISIONS AT 2 AGeV

ANOMALOUS REACTION MEAN FREE PATHS OF NUCLEAR PROJECTILE FRAGMENTS FROM HEAVY ION COLLISIONS AT 2 AGeV

Date: August 1, 1982
Creator: Friedlander, E.M.; Gimpel, R.W.; Heckman, H.H.; Karant, Y.J.; Judek, B. & Ganssauge, E.
Description: We present in detail the description and the analysis of two independent experiments using Bevalac beams of {sup 16}O and {sup 56}Fe. From their results it is concluded that the reaction mean free paths of relativistic projectile fragments, 3 {<=} Z {<=} 26, are shorter for a few centimeters after emission than at large distances where they are compatible with values predicted from experiments on beam nuclei. The probability that this effect is due to a statistical fluctuation is <10{sup -3}. The effect is enhanced in later generations of fragments, the correlation between successive generations suggesting a kind of "memory" for the anomaly. Various systematic and spurious effects as well as conventional explanations are discussed mainly on the basis of direct experimental observations internal to our data, and found not to explain our results. The data can be interpreted by the relatively rare occurrence of anomalous fragments that interact with an unexpectedly large cross section. The statistical methods used in the analysis of the observations are fully described.

The Application of Neutron-Activation Analysis to the Determination of Leach Rates of Simulated Nuclear-Waste Forms

Date: February 1982
Creator: Bates, J. K.; Jardine, L. J.; Flynn, K. & Steindler, M. J.
Description: The application of neutron activation analysis to the determination of element release from simulated nuclear waste forms during leaching is described for several different glasses. Potential neutron irradiation effects are discussed, and it is shown, by a series of leach tests on activated and non-activated glass samples, that neutron irradiation has no discernible effect on the release of silicon and cesium during leaching. The radioisotopes best suited for analysis with this method and their associated detection limits are identified, and the method's applicability to waste forms other than glass is discussed.

Aspects of possible magmatic disruption of a high-level radioactive waste repository in southern Nevada

Aspects of possible magmatic disruption of a high-level radioactive waste repository in southern Nevada

Date: October 1, 1982
Creator: Crowe, B.; Amos, R.; Perry, F.; Self, S. & Vaniman, D.
Description: The Nevada Test Site (NTS) region is located within the central section of a north-northeast-trending basaltic volcanic belt of late Cenozoic age, a part of the Quaternary volcanic province of the Great Basin. Future volcanism within the belt represents a potential hazard to storage of high-level radioactive waste within a buried repository located in the southwestern NTS. The hazards of future volcanism in the region are being characterized through a combination of volcanic hazards studies, probability determinations, and consequence analyses. Basaltic activity within the NTS regions is divided into two age groups consisting of relatively large-volume silicic cycle basalts (8 to 10 Myr) and rift basalts (< 8 to 0.3 Myr). This paper describes the processes of basaltic magmatism ranging from derivation of basalt melts at depth, through ascent through the upper mantle and crust, to surface eruption. Each stage in the evolution and dispersal of basaltic magma is described, and the disruption and potential dispersal of stored radioactive waste is evaluated. These data document areas of knowns and unknowns in the processes of basaltic volcanisms and provide background data necessary to assist calculations of radiation release levels due to disruption of a repository. 9 figures, 11 tables.

Assessment of Effectiveness of Geologic Isolation Systems SYSTEMS APPROXIMATE SIMULATOR: FISCAL YEAR 1982 PROGRESS

Date: May 1, 1982
Creator: Devary, J. L. & Petrie, G. M.
Description: The ISystemsl task of the Assessment of Effectiveness of Geologic Isolation Systems (AEGIS) Program is developing a Systems Approximate Simulator (SAS); a computer code of low-level technical complexity that incorporates the most significant waste-package, repository, and site processes affecting geologic nuclear waste isolation. This report discusses the AEGIS 1982 fiscal year progress toward building a SAS. A computer code, SAS(82), has been developed as the site module of the SAS development effort. The SAS(82) is an efficient and accurate simulator of one-dimensional radionuclide transport. Features of the SAS(82) are direct (Monte Carlo) simulation, linear decay and sorption models, spatially and temporally varying hydrologic and geochemical variables, general travel-time distributions (possibly non-Fickian), and multinuclide release. The SAS(82) was used to simulate radionuclide transport from a nuclear waste repository located within the Hanford basalts. A {sup 99}Tc analysis along a thermally influenced path through the Grande Ronde Formation demonstrated the complexity of modeling near-field transport. Perturbed hydrologic conditions corresponding to &quot;Hanford Basalt Geologic Simulation Model&quot; results (Petrie et al. 1981) were evaluated, using the SAS(82). Future work will include the development of SAS waste-package and repository modules as simplified process models become available. The SAS may eventually be used as the basis ...
