Description

Progress during the fourth quarter of FY-1975 in research on the utilization of nuclear by-products is reported. Preliminary conceptual and engineering analysis studies were made of a proposed U.S. Air Force 2kW(e) power system employing Waste Encapsulation and Storage Facility (WESF) $sup 90$SrF$sub 2$ capsules as a source of heat. The results showed the feasibility of such a system, but indicated that the SrF$sub 2$ capsule materials might have to be changed to satisfy operating life requirements. Dose rates from a WESF $sup 90$SrF$sub 2$ capsule were measured. Dose rates and radiation efficiences for WESF $sup 137$CsCl capsules of varying ... continued below

Dose rates from a WESF $sup 90$SrF$sub 2$ capsule were measured. Dose rates and radiation efficiences for WESF $sup 137$CsCl capsules of varying geometries were calculated. A forecast of the potential supply of a number of beneficial reactor by-products was assembled. A start was made on the definitions of a flow sheet for an integrated reactor by- product recovery plant. Preliminary work was done on the methodology for forecasting long-term demand for reactor by-products. (auth)
