Final Safety Analysis Report: SNAP III Thermoelectric Generator

Description: From summary: An analysis has been performed to determine the ability of the fuel container to withstand the various thermal, mechanical and chemical forces imposed upon the generator by vehicle failures. Where theoretical analysis was impossible, and where experimental evidence was desired, capsules and generators were tested under simulated missile-failure conditions. Thus, the safety limits of SNAP III in a satellite application were defined.

Final Safety Analysis: Ten-Watt Strontium-90 Fueled Generator for an Unattended Meteorological Station, SNAP-7C

Description: From introduction: The primary objectives in designing a nuclear safe radiostrontium generator are: continuous absolute containment of the radiostrontium fuel, which is a relatively insoluble and chemically stable fuel compound, and biological shielding of the direct radiation from the heat source. This report evaluates the safety aspects of a prototype Strontium-90 fueled generator which will be utilized by the U.S. Navy to power and unattended automatic meterological station.

Fire Tests of Precast Cellular Concrete Floors and Roofs

Description: From Abstract: "The results of an investigation of lightweight, precast cellular concrete planks are given. Fire tests were made of two floor and five roof specimens made up of these planks. Variables, included density of the cellular concrete, thickness and span of the planks, reinforcement, and cover for the latter."

Flora of Healthy Dogs: [Part] 2. Isolation of Enteroviruses from Lower Intestines

Description: Fecal specimens from apparently healthy dogs were inoculated into MK, DK, HeLa, and CP cells. Twenty-six cytopathic agents were isolated in MK, 11 in HeLa, and 4 in CP, but none in DK cells. Neutralization tests indicated that all but one of the viruses were either strains of ECHO type 6 or were closely related to it. Twenty-one of 29 dogs were carrying the virus.
