SLUG PROGRAM QUARTERLY REPORT FOR APRIL, MAY, JUNE 1953

Description

Preliminary results are reported on the coating of U by immersion in nonreacting molten Mg saturated with Zr, Ni, or Si. A corrosion analysis of the resulting Mg-- Zr outer coat was performed on one failure occurring in boiling water. Further experiments are described on the corrosion testing of Cu-plated and Zn-dipped U. Improvements in the Zn-dip process are uncertain, however, because hot-dip Zn coats show comparable corrosion characteristics. Investigations have been conducted on the casting of U in cans of Zr,U, and Nb-- U alloys. Information was accumulated on the nature of the bonding characteristics, thermal treatment, and corrosion ... continued below

Description

Preliminary results are reported on the coating of U by immersion in nonreacting molten Mg saturated with Zr, Ni, or Si. A corrosion analysis of the resulting Mg-- Zr outer coat was performed on one failure occurring in boiling water. Further experiments are described on the corrosion testing of Cu-plated and Zn-dipped U. Improvements in the Zn-dip process are uncertain, however, because hot-dip Zn coats show comparable corrosion characteristics. Investigations have been conducted on the casting of U in cans of Zr,U, and Nb-- U alloys. Information was accumulated on the nature of the bonding characteristics, thermal treatment, and corrosion testing of such canning techniques. A new series of U-Nb alloys has been prepared for the purpose of studying the phase transformations of U. Data are given for the fabrication, phase characteristics, and physical and chemical properties of the series. Resistance-temperature curves were determined for U--Mo alloys, in addition to studies of corrosion and grain size in U--Zr--Hb alloys. A method is proposed for determining the thermal conductivity of U from diffusivity measurements. (C.H.)
