  • Content Description: Physical data are presented for transverse CSF samples with capsule exposures of 568, 1049, and 1617 MD/CT. The higher exposures indicate a sharper damage gradient toward the front of the pile. Additional casings of various types of graphite were loaded into test holes during this month. Average values of the thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity for several types of virgin graphites are presented. Data of this nature will be a regular portion of this report henceforth. Process tube channel 2677-H was mined and traversed for bore diameter. Although several of the tube block junctions were obscured, the channel was quite uniform. Examination of all previously mined graphite powder samples for aluminum oxide corrosion product has been completed and the results are reported.
