Insufflation studies in rabbits with dusts of uranium compounds

Description: From abstract: "In a large series of rabbits, both the responses exhibited by the animal and the fate of the dose have been observed following the intratracheal insufflation of a soluble (uranyl nitrate) and an insoluble (U30g) compound, large (100mg) and small (5 and 10mg) doses have been given. For comparison, in a third series of tests a large fose of uranyl nitrate was injected intramuscularly."

A method for the determination of traces of metals

Description: Report describing quantitative recovery traces of electrolyzable metals in a mercury cathode. The majority of the report is concerned with separation of metals from concentrated uranyl sulfate solutions.

Nonadiabatic effects in single-particle orbits

Description: From introduction: "The containment of a charged particle in a mirror field has been studied analytically and numerically. Formulas are presented which give the change in the magnetic moment as it passes from one end of the machine to the other."

Aqueous Corrosion of Uranium Fuel-Element Cores Containing 0 to 20 w/o Zirconium

Description: Abstract: A description is given of the design and operation of a windowed autoclave system employed in the study of corrosion by pressurized hot water. The device has been used to obtain time-lapse motion pictures of the swelling and rupture of deliberately defected zirconium-clad uranium specimens. A method is described by which corrosion rates were calculated from pressure and temperature measurements. A typical set of pictures taken during a test is presented, and corrosion rates are reported for uranium-0, 5, 10, 15, and 20 w/o zirconium alloys subjected subjected to 600 F water.

Analysis of uranium hexafluoride-hydrogen fluoride solutions by freezing point determination : errors caused by liquid -vapor equilibrium

Description: A report detailing the analysis of uranium hexafluoride-hydrogen fluoride solutions by their freezing point determination. This analysis was conducted by measuring vapor pressures at the freezing temperatures of different compositions of uranium hexafluoride-hydrogren fluoride solutions.

Analytical methods and results

Description: Report detailing the analytical methods and results of a study designed to measure the total alpha particle activity of samples. The method being used was previously in use at Columbia University. The report recognizes potential for grave errors, but makes no effort to minimize the effect of the roughness of the sample.

Analytical procedure for determination of tuballoy in solid salvage residues

Description: From abstract: Test results indicate that the hydrofluorination method for the analysis of tuballoy in solid salvage residues yields sufficient results with a high degree of accuracy; while a modification of the procedure gives good results in approximately half the time.

Apparatus for visual study of corrosion by hot water

Description: Report describing an apparatus for visual study of corrosion of uranium by hot water. A windowed autoclave was designed and constructed to permit visual study of the reaction under conditions simulating a cladding failure in service.

Temperature distribution in spherical pellets

Description: From abstract: "A study is presented of the surface temperature distribution of spherical pellets in a fixed-bed, pellet-type reactor. The temperature near a point of contact is determined experimentally by means of an electrolytic tank analogue. An analytical approach involving the use of the IBM (CPC) calculator is described. Suggestions for further study are included."
