Description

Nuclear cross section data for gadolinium, Gd/sup 155/, and Gd/sup 157/ were compiled. Average absorption cross sections were computed assuming Maxwellian thermal spectra for moderator temperatures from 70 to 600 deg F. Poison demand curves were computed for a boiling water reactor with an H/sub 2/O- to-UO/sub 2/ ratio of 2.6, U/sup 235/ enrichments from 1.8 to 3.8 wt%, zirconium or stainless steel as clad, and fuel depletions of 10,000 to 25,000 Mwd/t. Based on the above poison demand curves, poison lumps in the shape of cylinders are being investigated analytically. A calculational method is being developed for detailed depletion ... continued below

Based on the above poison demand curves, poison lumps in the shape of cylinders are being investigated analytically. A calculational method is being developed for detailed depletion studies of cylinders. Gadolinia, alumina, and Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/- Gd/sub 2/O/sub 3/ rods wer e formed and sintered at temperatures to 2700 deg F, in an air atmosphere for two to six hours. Investigations of reaction between Gd/sub 2/O/sub 3/ and Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ were begun. (auth)
