Notes

Partial abstract (p. v): The ML-1 power plant did not operate during the report period; low power reactor physics and shielding experiments were conducted with the ML-1 reactor. Evaluation of moderate corrosion observed on aluminum parts exposed to the ML-1 shield solution indicated no loss of performance capability. Preliminary tests showed that the corrosion probably was caused by heavy metal ions or chlorides in the solution, Massive corrosion observed on the ML-1 fuel element lower spiders was attributed to sub-standard material; failure of some spiders was attributed to a combination of corrosion and sub-standard fabrication. Evaluation indicated that the upper spiders will perform satisfactorily for the design lifetime. Modification, repair, and reassembly of the CSN-1A t-c set was completed. Operation demonstrated bearing stability, but showed that the turbine effective flow area was too large. A bypass flow path in the turbine was being corrected. The TCS-670 t-c set will be stored indefinitely. Since a commercial alternator will be used for the ML-1A, further development of the brushless alternator was postponed indefinitely. Evaluation revealed that the ML-1 improved precooler design was not compatible with ML-1A requirements. Operation of the IB-17R-2 and -3 test elements in the GETR continued without incident. Preliminary design of the ML-1A power plant was initiated. Design of modifications to the GCRE facility to adapt it to testing the ML-1 reactor skid was initiated. (auth)
