1000-MWe LMFBR Follow-On Study, Task I Report: Volume 1

Description: From introduction: "The objective of this study is to provide information that will assist the Atomic Energy Commission in furthering the National Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) Program. We plan to accomplish this end, in part, by extending the original studies to include system and component design and parametric evaluations of the nuclear steam supply system and its related systems and subsystems based on a n estimation of the state of technology in 1980."

Geological Reconnaissance of the Sulphur River and Cypress Creek Basins, Texas

Description: This report is concerned with that part of the Texas Water Project located in the Cypress Creek and Sulphur River Basins and within the New Orleans District (NOD) of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. The geological reconnaissance reported herein was performed for the NOD to provide a basis for estimating costs and determining the feasibility of construction of 5 dams and reservoirs, 1 tunnel, 15 pump stations, and about 110 miles of transmission channel and the enlargement of 2 existing reservoirs.

Moisture-Strength Characteristics of Selected Soils in Thailand, Volume 1: Analysis and Application of Data

Description: Partial summary: "Soil moisture, soil strength, and other relevant data were collected in Thailand during two wet seasons and one dry season for use in the development of methods to predict soil trafficability for off-road ground contact vehicles in Southeast Asia. Data were collected at 75 test sites distributed in eight geographic areas which had differences in soils, weather regimes, terrain, and land use" (p. xi).

A Technique for Delineating Subsurface Fracture Zones Resulting from High-Yield Detonations

Description: From summary: Site investigations were conducted at two locations, the sites of the DUGOUT and CHARLIE events, at the Nevada Test Site for the purpose of evaluating the dynamic in situ technique as a means of determining the boundaries of craters produced by explosive detonations.

Entrainment Carbonization of Texas Lignite

Description: From Abstract: "This bulletin is a detailed study of low-temperature, entrained-bed carbonization of a Texas lignite. The lignite was from the Sandow strip mine and is representative of the Rockdale formation of the Wilcox formational group.

Thermodynamic Properties of Forsterite and Serpentine

Description: From introduction: "This report contains the results of measurements to obtain the heats of formation of forsterite and chrysotile; entropies at 298.15 K of two polymorphs of serpentine, chrysotile and antigorite; and high temberature heat content increments for antigorite. These results have been combined with other pertinent data to derive heat and free energy values at high temperatures."

Third Annual Report: Brackish Water Conversion Demonstration Plant Number 4, Roswell, New Mexico

Description: From Abstract: "Primary interest was placed on the scale formation problem. Significant improvements were made in the process and described in this report. Maintenance requirements were unusually high during the year, primarily as a result of cumulative corrosion damage over the last three years. The most significant damage was in the circulating pumps, the heat exchangers and feed piping. These and other failures are described."

Scale Control With Graphite Heat-Transfer Tubes of Controlled Permeability to Steam

Description: From Introduction: "The present project authorized under OSW Contract No. 14-01-0001-685 was undertaken to investigate the feasibility of controlling calcium sulfate scale by permission of condensate through graphite heat-transfer tubes. Specifically, the following tasks were accomplished during the course of this contract: Graphite tubes 108" long X 2" O.D. x 1 1/2" I.D. were manufactured at three permeability levels. A test apparatus was constructed and proved out as a useful and reliable probe. Tests were conducted at two brine concentrations. Some correlation of test considerations with scale formation was found. The economic practicality and the feasibility of using permeable tubes for desalinization were established."
