A Hybrid-Computer Program for Transient Temperature Calculations on TREAT Fast Reactor Safety Experiments

A Hybrid-Computer Program for Transient Temperature Calculations on TREAT Fast Reactor Safety Experiments

Date: September 1967
Creator: Bryant, Lawrence T.; Dickerman, Charles E. & Stephany, William P.
Description: Report issued by the Argonne National Laboratory discussing a computer program used for fast reactor safety experiments. As stated in the summary, "this report gives a detailed description of a hybrid-computer program for calculating temperatures in a multi-region, axisymmetric, cylindrical configuration consisting of solid materials bounded by flowing coolant. Included is an explanation of the mathematical methods, together with a discussion of special features, input-output descriptions, and several sample problems" (p. 7). This report includes tables, and illustrations.

Effect of Explosive Impacting on Uranium

Effect of Explosive Impacting on Uranium

Date: April 23, 1964
Creator: Burditt, R. B.; Carey, W. T. & Coughlen, C. P.
Description: Abstract: The tensile and yield strengths of both cast and wrought uranium discs were substantially increased by explosively impacting them at room temperature and at 375 deg F. However, the room-temperature impacting caused gross damage in the cast material and slight internal damage in the wrought material at the highest impacting pressures. Impacting at 375 deg F, which is just above the brittle-ductile transition temperature for uranium, was the most effective method for increasing the strengths with no damage to either the cast or wrought material. This impacted material retained some of its increased strength after a low temperature (425 deg C) vacuum anneal that greatly increased the elongation. A salt anneal caused a partial recrystallization in the impacted cast uranium. (auth).
