1965 audit of SRP radioactive waste

Description: This report summarizes releases of radioactive waste to the environs of the Savannah River Plant during the calendar year 1965. Total quantities of radioactive waste released from plant startup through 1965 are also reported. Accuracy is not always implied to the degree indicated by the number of significant figures reported. Values were not rounded off, since data will be used in future cumulative summaries. No explanations are given for unusual releases; this information may be found in the Radiological and Environmental Sciences Division Monthly Reports and in the Semi- annual and Annual Environmental Monitoring Reports for 1965.

Abscissas and Weights for Guassian Quadrature For N=2 to 100, and N-125, 150, 175, 200

Description: The abscissas and weights for Gaussian Quadrature of order N = 2 to 100,and N = 125, 150, 175, and 200 are given. The abscissas are given to twenty-four places and the error is estimated to be no more than 1 unit in the last place. The weights are given to twenty-three places and the error is estimated to be no more than 1 unit in the last place.

Annual Report to Congress 1966

Description: Progress in the Plowshare program during 1966 was characterized by the upsurge of interest by industry in the contained applications of nuclear explosions for gas and oil stimulation, storage and disposal, recovery of oil from oil shales, and mining. Advances in the excavation area were limited to improved code calculations as no field experiments were conducted.

Atlas of Irradiated Fuel Structures

Description: Compilation of photographs, photomicrograph mosaics of fuel element cross-sections, and autoradiographs of irradiated fuels. These images were colleted to understand in-reactor fuel kinetics and illustrate structural changes that occur during irradiation of ceramic fuel elements.

CHEMICAL TRAPPING OF A PRIMARY QUANTUM CONVERSION PRODUCT INPHOTOSYNTHESIS

Description: The capacity of photosynthetic organisms to exhibit photo-induced electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) signals has been known for over ten years. Subcellular units of photosynthetic materials, the quantasomes and the chromatophores, are capable of Hill Reaction activity, and also of exhibiting the light-induced EPR signals. This, coupled with the rapid rise and decay kinetics of these signals, suggests but does not prove that the unpaired electrons are involved in the initial electron transfer processes in the primary quantum conversion act. The identification of the species giving rise to these signals and their connection with processes of primary quantum conversion remains elusive even though such varied approaches as mutant strains, special growth conditions, extreme physical conditions, special metabolic inhibitors, etc. have been applied to this problem. In this communication the authors wish to report another method being used in an attempt to identify the species responsible for the unpaired electrons. Hoffman prepared a water soluble, stable free radical, di-tertiary-butylnitroxide (hereafter called DTBN), which is a 'vigorous free radical scavenger'. It shows a sharp, well resolved, symmetrical, three-line paramagnetic resonance spectrum that is relatively insensitive to the molecular environment. The chemistry of di-tertiary butylnitroxide has not been studied extensively. However, four distinct types of interaction can be envisioned for this molecule. It could undergo a one-electron reduction to form a hydroxylamine which can be reduced subsequently to the amine; an oxidative degradation to 2-methyl-2-nitrosopropane and isobutylene; or a coupling with another radical forming either an oxygen substituted hydroxylamine or a tri-substituted amine oxide.

CLUSTERING OF CARBON ATOMS IN alpha-IRON*

Description: Binding and migration energies and atomic configurations have been calculated for small carbon clusters in {alpha}-iron. A mathematical model was used which consisted of a spherical crystallite containing about 530 atoms which were treated as individual particles, surrounded by an elastic continuum with atoms imbedded in it. A two-body central force was used to simulate the interaction between nearest and next nearest. neighboring iron atoms in the crystallite and another was used for the iron-carbon interaction. The dicarbon, tricarbon, and tetracarbon binding energies were 0.14, 0.36, and 0.66 eV respectively, and the binding energy continued increasing for larger clusters by approximately 0.31 eV per additional carbon atom. The most stable configurations for clusters were very thin platelets on {001} planes in which the individual carbon atoms occupied octahedral sites. The axes of the carbon atoms were parallel to each other and perpendicular to the platelet~ lbe migration energy of the platelets was higher than the single carbon migration energy, and the migration mechanism consisted of peripheral atoms moving around the e.dges of the platelet.

Coal Resources of the Fabius-Flat Rock Area, Jackson Countym Alabama

Description: Report issued by the Bureau of Mines discussing studies conducted on the coal resources of the Flat-Rock area of Jackson County, Alabama. As stated in the introduction, "an investigation was planned to determine the extent, quality, and economic minability of coal deposits in Alabama reasonably close to ample fresh water sources that might be available for possible thermal electric power-plants" (p. 1). This report includes tables, maps, illustrations, and photographs.
