Selected Papers on Uranium Deposits in the United States

Description: From foreword: The six papers included in this report were prepared in an attempt to summarize briefly, and make available to the public, part of the information concerning uranium deposits that is in unpublished reports of work done by the U. S. Geological Survey under the auspices of the Manhattan Engineer District, and later, the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission.

Selected Values of the Physical Properties of Various Materials

Description: Report issued by the Argonne National Laboratory discussing selected physical properties of various solids, liquids, and gases of interest in nuclear reactor heat transfer and fluid flow analysis. In most cases, values for thermal conductivity specific heat, density, viscosity, and Prandtl numbers are given as functions of temperature. This report includes tables, and illustrations.

A semi-empirical method for calculating the pitching moment of bodies of revolution at low Mach numbers

Description: A semiempirical method, in which potential theory is arbitrarily combined with an approximate viscous theory, for calculating the aerodynamic pitching moments for bodies of revolution is presented. The method can also be used for calculating the lift and drag forces. The calculated and experimental force and moment characteristics of 15 bodies of revolution are compared.

Description: Progress is reported in the following studies: carbohydrate metabolism in human erythrocytes; the development of a system of electron therapy employing a linear electron accelerator and an electromagnetic beann deflector; the capacity of progesterone to inhibit the sodium-retaining influence of aldosterone and desoxycorticosterone; use of tritium-labeled cholesterol in measuring the lability of cholesterol in human atherosclerotic plaques; the capacity of a number of steroid hormone metabelites to provoke fever in man; the failure of human placental tissue homogenates to convent progesterone to estrogens; and tracer studies on enzyme requirements for the incorporation of cytidine triphosphate into ribonucleic acid in a mammalian system.

A Semiquantitative Spectrographic Method for the Analysis of Minerals, Rocks, and Ores (2)

Description: Abstract: The scope of the semiquantitative spectrographic method for the analysis of minerals, rocks, and ores previously described as determining 55 elements, has now been increased to 68 elements which can be estimated in one exposure of a l0-mg sample. Fluorine, the 69th element, requires a separate exposure for some materials. The method has been used to complete about 185,000 determinations in the past two years. Listed in this report are 336 chemical check analyses that indicate approximately 8 percent disagreements in the magnitude of one 10 percent bracket. No chemical and spectrographic results differ by a factor of more than 10.

Description: In the separation of mixtures of radioactive iron and cobalt from neutron irradiated targets and in the removal of iron from cobalt targets for cyclotron production of radioiron, it is desirable to have a method superior to extraction from isopropyl ether in efficiency and ease of manipulation. Recent studies by Moore and Kraus on the separation of cobalt and nickel and on the behavior of iron in hydrochloric acid on Dowex-l resin in relation to the selective adsorption of chloride complexes of these elements have suggested the use of resin for the separation of iron and cobalt.

Description: The theory and results of chemical exchange experiments for separation of Pu and U isotopes are presented. Solvent extraction systems were studied in both aqueous and organic media. Chemical exchange systems are proposed which could yield high separation factors. (W.L.H.)

Separation of Zirconium & Hafnium : Proposal for Construction & Operation of Zirconium Production Plant

Description: Abstract: A re-evaluation of the cost of producing essentially hafnium free zirconium as zirconium oxide at a rate of 150,000-200,000 pounds zirconium per year by solvent extraction of the metal thiocyanates in a permanent plant has been made. Using part of the present temporary facilities, the cost, with five year amortization of the plant, will be $3.15 per pound zirconium. A by-product of the mixed oxides of hafnium and zirconium, having at least fifty percent hafnium and perhaps as high as ninety percent hafnium, can be made available with little additional cost.
