Synthesis and Fabrication of Refractory Uranium Compounds. Monthly Progress Report No. 8 for April 1 Through April 31, 1960

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The effort on uranium silicide during the repent period was equally divided between synthesis and fabrication. The goal for the synthesizing effort was to make U/sub 3/8i/sub 2/ of higher purity than that made in the past, and the goal for the fabrication effort was to make pellets of density higher than 93%. Both goals were achieved. Experiments in simultaneous synthesis and fabrication of uranium monocarbide are reported in which mixtures of uranium powder and carbon were hot pressed. Sintering experiments on uranium monocarbide produced pellets of 91 to 91% theoretical density; however, cracking and oxidation were observed. Further experiments ... continued below

Further experiments are planned in which oxidation will be reduced to a minimum. (J.R.D.)
