Project DRIBBLE, Petrographic Examination and Physical Tests of Cores, Tatum Salt Dome, Mississippi

Description: Report providing information about experiments performed on core samples taken from the Tatum Salt Dome in Mississippi with an appendix about similar core samples from Louisiana. "All samples were examined petrographically before being subjected to physical tests to develop information on texture, fabric, structure, and composition" (p. vii).

Development and Evaluation of Soil Bearing Capacity Foundations of Structures, Report 1: Field Vibratory Tests Data

Description: This report is the first in a series and provides the methods and data obtained from field tests to compare soil types to evaluate highly-compacted soils in foundations that are subjected to dynamic loads. "The specific purpose was to determine the effect of load contact area and static contact pressure on the elastic properties of foundations as determined by means of a small-scale vibratory tests" (p. vii).

A Proposal for the Mc2 Isochronous Cyclotron: A General Purpose High-Intensity 810-MeV Proton Accelerator

Description: Abstract: "The Oak Ridge National Laboratory proposes to build an isochronous eight-sector proton cyclotron to provide an extracted beam in excess of 100 A at 810 MeV. The primary proton beam and the secondary meson and neutron beams will be used to investigate nuclear structure, and the interactions between elementary particles. Biomedical and Space-oriented research programs are also planned. Shielded research areas and an extensive beam transport and analysis system are provided. Theoretical and experimental studies have shown that the Mc2 Cyclotron is a practical concept; high extraction efficiencies can be obtained, and the residual radiation problems are manageable. The project would require less than seven years to complete, and would cost about $43,000,000."

Regional Hydrology of a Part of Southern Nevada: a Reconnaissance

Description: From introduction: This report summarizes the available hydrologic information for a part of Nevada surrounding the Nevada Test Site. It emphasizes the possibility that ground water may move from one basin to another, whereas the usual concept heretofore has been that the ground water of the region generally occurs in basins that are closed or nearly closed.

Carolinas Virginia Tube Reactor: Large Plant Study

Description: From introduction: The Carolinas Virginia Tube Reactor is to be designed as a prototype for a large-scale plant of about 200 megawatts electrical or larger, wherein operation with natural uranium feed material may be feasible but such feed material can only be considered if it is the more economical.

PM-1 Nuclear Power Plant Program: Final Progress Report, September 1, 1962 Through Completion

Description: From abstract: The principal efforts during the final period were concerned with plant testing, modifications to the plant to enable it to produce full design load at high ambient temperatures, the compilation and evaluation of plant performance data, preparation of documents and transfer of the plant to the AEC and final resolution of all outstanding contract scope items.

PM-1 Nuclear Power Plant Program: Plant Performance Studies, Final Periodic Report, September 1, 1962 to December 31, 1962

Description: From abstract: Data obtained during the performance testing of the PM-1 plant was compiled and evaluated. It is concluded from the data that the plant performance in general meets or exceeds specifications. Transient and steady-state electrical fluctuations are well within specified limitations. Heat balance data for both the primary and secondary systems agree reasonably well with design predictions. Radiation levels are below those anticipated.
