IRRADIATION TESTING OF OPERATING ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT BY FAST NEUTRONS AND GAMMAS. Final Report

Description: A study of the radiation effects of fast neutrons (O.5 ev to about 15 Mev) and gamma rays (fission spectrum) on various pieces of aircraft instrumentation is re ported. Components studied were: fuel gage vacuumtube amplifier and indicator, transistorized (germanium and silicon) servo amplifier system, and 4-in. diam. gyro. The fuel gage was subjected to a total neutron flux of about 6 x 1O/sup 5/nvt and about 5 x 1Osup 8/ r gamma with no adverse electrical effect. Physical damage was evident. Four transistorized amplifiers were irradiated in a fast flux of about 1.0 x 10/sup 10/cm/sup 2/ sec. Rapid loss in gain, rapid increase in d-c current drain, and complete failure occurred when the integrated flux reached about same flux. Studies on the gyro were inconclusive due to equipment failure. (auth)

MEASUREMENTS THROUGH A HOT CELL WINDOW USING OPTICAL TOOLING

Description: S>Optical tooling has been evaluated for the measurement of physical dimensions of radioactive parts through hot cell windows. Instruments were set up outside of a four foot thick lead glass window and by means of a grid plate which had been accurately scribed, a ''contour map'' or calibration chart of the window variations was recorded. Although the window was not specially selected, the readings were within 1.0% of the true dimension without using correction factors. One of the calibration chart with the window reduced the error to plus or minus 0.1%. The method is considered feasible and sufficiently fast for a wide variety of hot cell measurements. A pin point light source is suggested as a simple check for selective assembly of lead glass laminates during manufacture of hot cell windows to provide control of optical properties. (auth)

Interim Report on the Location of Nonsaline Uraniferous Waters Suitable for Ion-Exchange Process

Description: From introduction: The Trace Elements Section Washington Laboratory had developed the methods used in anticipation of handling an increased volume of water analyses as this preliminary project is expanded into a full-scale investigation. The efforts of these groups were coordinated by the Trace Elements Planning and Coordination Office.

EXPANDED SCALE PROCESS DEVELOPMENT OF THE ELECTROLYTIC PRODUCTION OF THORIUM FROM ThCl$sub 4$ IN EXTERNALLY HEATED ELECTROLYTIC CELLS

Description: The commercial feasibility of the electrolytic process for Th production has been demonstrated. The cell produced 7 lb. of good quality metal per hour. A cathode cooling system was developed. The major construction materials, Ni and graphite, were satisfactory. The process yield was 86%. (T.R.H.)

Theoretical Investigation of the Effects of the Artificial-Feel System on the Maneuvering Characteristics of the F-89 Airplane

Description: The possibility of overshooting the anticipated normal acceleration as a result of the artificial-feel characteristics of the F-89C airplane at a condition of minimum static stability was investigated analytically by means of an electronic simulator. Several methods of improving the stick-force characteristics were studied. It is shown that, due to the lag in build-up of the portion of the stick force introduced by the bobweight, it would be possible for excessive overshoots of normal acceleration to occur in abrupt maneuvers with reasonable assumed control movements. The addition of a transient stick force proportional to pitching acceleration (which leads the normal acceleration) to prevent this occurring would not be practical due to the introduction of an oscillatory mode to the stick-position response. A device to introduce a viscous damping force would Improve the stick-force characteristics so that normal acceleration overshoots would not be likely, and the variation of the maximum stick force in rapid pulse-type maneuvers with duration of the maneuver then would have a favorable trend.
