Shielding Against Gamma Rays, Neutrons, and Electrons From Nuclear Weapons: A Review and Bibliography

Shielding Against Gamma Rays, Neutrons, and Electrons From Nuclear Weapons: A Review and Bibliography

Date: February 24, 1964
Creator: Hubbell, J. H. & Spencer, L. V.
Description: Report discussing the problem of predicting dose rates and of estimating the effectiveness of shielding from radiations resulting from nuclear explosions. A number of calculations and supporting experiments regarding the penetration and diffusion of gamma rays, neutrons, and electrons through air and bulk materials are summarized. Indications are given of gaps in such input information. A selection of 485 references from the unclassified literature is presented, of which 388 are cataloged as to source geometry and energy, absorber material and configuration, type of data presented, and method of calculation or experimental technique. These cataloged references include radiation field studies ranging from the point-source infinite-medium situation up through such complicated geometries as foxholes, shelters, and conventional structures. The other references are of a general or review nature or contain input spectral data.

Compilation of the Melting Points of the Metal Oxides

Compilation of the Melting Points of the Metal Oxides

Date: October 10, 1963
Creator: Schneider, Samuel J.
Description: Report compiling the melting points of 70 metal oxides published prior to January 1963. Both the original melting point and the equivalent value based on the International Practical Temperature Scale of 1948 are presented. Included in the survey is information on pertinent experimental details such as the method of temperature measurement, purity, furnace type, and environmental conditions.

Curves of Input Impedance Change Due to Ground for Dipole Antennas

Curves of Input Impedance Change Due to Ground for Dipole Antennas

Date: January 31, 1964
Creator: Vogler, L. E. & Noble, J. L.
Description: Report presenting graphs of the change in input impedance of electrically short dipole antennas in the presence of an isotropic and homogeneous ground which considers four types of antennas: horizontal and vertical, electric and magnetic dipoles. Curves of the change in both the input resistance and reactance are shown for a wide range of values of the frequency, antenna height above the ground, and electromagnetic ground constants.

Refractive Indices and Densities of Aqueous Solutions of Invert Sugar

Refractive Indices and Densities of Aqueous Solutions of Invert Sugar

Date: June 7, 1963
Creator: Snyder, Carl F. & Hattenburg, Albert T.
Description: Report of the refractive indices and densities of aqueous solutions of invert sugar at temperatures of 15, 20, 25, and 30º C, for concentrations up to about 82 percent of invert sugar (by weight). From the results, equations have been derived which relate the refractive index and percent of invert sugar (weight in air) at each temperature. Other equations relate the absolute density and percent of invert sugar (weight in vacuum) at each temperature. Five-decimal tables giving the refractive indices and densities of invert sugar solutions containing 1 to 85 percent of sugar are given for each percentage of invert sugar at the four temperatures.

Analytical Standards for Trace Elements in Petroleum Products

Analytical Standards for Trace Elements in Petroleum Products

Date: October 1, 1962
Creator: Isbell, H. S.; Tipson, R. Stuart; Hague, J. L.; Scribner, B. F.; Smith, W. Harold; Wade, Clarence W. R. et al.
Description: Report discussing a search conducted for stable, oil-soluble, organic compounds of metals (and other elements) for use in the spectrographic analysis of petroleum products. Compounds having suitable physical properties have been selected as standards. Methods are given for preparation of the compounds and for the spectrographic and chemical analysis of the chosen standards. Procedures are described for the preparation of stable solutions thereof in petroleum oils.

Temperature-Induced Stresses in Solids of Elementary Shape

Temperature-Induced Stresses in Solids of Elementary Shape

Date: June 21, 1960
Creator: Adams, Leason H. & Waxler, Roy M.
Description: Report discussing how solids subjected to non-uniform temperature change develop internal stresses determined by, (1) the temperature distribution within the solid, and (2) certain physical constants of the material. For two varieties of heating, the equations determining stress have been put in convenient form for practical use, and tables of certain temperature functions show how to determine stresses in a slab, in a cylinder, or in a sphere subjected to either of two modes of heating. The temperature-distribution tables independently provide a useful means for the ready estimation of temperature gradients.

Liquid-in-Glass Thermometry

Liquid-in-Glass Thermometry

Date: January 1976
Creator: Wise, Jacquelyn A.
Description: Report containing information of general interest to manufacturers and users of liquid-in-glass thermometers. This report supersedes Monograph 90. Instructions explaining how to submit a thermometer to the National Bureau of Standards for calibration are provided, and the techniques and equipment, such as stirred liquid comparison baths, used in the calibration procedures are described. A discussion of important principles of acceptable thermometer design and factors affecting their use is included. Listed are tables of tolerances reflecting good manufacturing practices and reasonably attainable accuracies expected with liquid-in-glass thermometers. The calculation of corrections for the temperature of the emergent stem is given in detail for various types of thermometers and conditions of use.

Standard X-ray Diffraction Powder Patterns: Section 2. Data for 37 Substances

Standard X-ray Diffraction Powder Patterns: Section 2. Data for 37 Substances

Date: May 3, 1963
Creator: Swanson, Howard E.; Morris, M. C.; Stinchfield, Roger P. & Evans, Eloise H.
Description: Report discussing standard X-ray diffraction powder patterns for thirty-seven substances. Eleven are to replace patterns already given in the X-ray Powder Data File issued by the American Society for Testing and Materials, and twenty-six patterns indicated by asterisks are for substances not previously included. The X-ray Powder Data File is a compilation of diffraction patterns from many sources and is used for the identification of unknown crystalline materials by matching spacing and intensity measurements. The patterns were made with a Geiger counter X-ray diffractometer, using samples of high purity.
