Argonaut Automatic Flux Controller Design Report

Description: Report issued by the Argonne National Laboratory over design studies conducted on Argonaut reactors for training and research purposes. As stated in the abstract, "the design presented in the form of a steady-state analysis based upon the small-signal linearization of the reactor kinetics transfer function. The measured controller performance and construction details of the equipment is given" (p. 7). This report includes tables, illustrations, and photographs.

A Low Dead-Time Neutron-Counting-System

Description: From Abstract: "This report describes a counting system capable of processing input pulses at an average rate in excess of 3 x 10 to the fifth power counts per second with less than 10 percent counting loss due to instrumental dead time."

A Performance Analysis of the EBWR at Various Power Levels

Description: From Introduction: "This study is an attempt to predict the operating performance of EBWR (Experimental Boiling Water Reactor) at various power levels. It was done at the same time that EWBR was raised in power up to 100 MW, and so an excellent possibility was given to check the validity of the used performance analysis. Rather than giving a general and complete outline of the analysis or establishing a new approach, the study outlines and specifies the numerous practical problems involved in this analysis, and tries to explain the discrepancies between predicted and experimental results."

Manufacture of Fuel Plates for the Experimental Boiling Water Reactor

Description: From Abstract: "Discussed in the paper are the production of the uranium fuel alloy, the fabrication of the cladding components from Zircaloy-2 ingot, the assembly, welding, evacuation, and sealing of the cladding billets, the jacketing of the cladding billets with steel, and the roll bonding, heat treatment, stripping, and cleaning of the fuel plates. Evaluation of the fuel plates produced is also included."

Preliminary Design of a Basic Radiation Effects Reactor (BRER)

Description: From Introduction: "Information has been accumulated about the property changes produced, but there are essentially no reliable quantitative data correlating property changes with the magnitude and energy distribution of the neutron fluxes responsible for the changes. The design of the Basic Radiation Effects Reactor (BRER) presented herein stems from the two main requirements: 1. a fairly high-level, high-energy neutron flux with minimal thermal neutron and gamma-ray background is desired; 2. the peak of the neutron-energy spectrum should be variable within the approximate range from 10 to 1000 kev."

Preliminary Design and Hazards Report-Boiling Reactor Experiment V (BORAX V)

Description: From introduction: "The report is preliminary. At the time of writing, the status of the BORAX V project is that design of the reactor buildings and plant, done in collaboration with the architect-engineer with the architect-engineer has been completed and construction has just started; however, the mechanical design of the fuel and cores is still tentative."

A Method of Calculating Transient Temperatures in a Multiregion, Axisymmetric, Cylindrical Configuration the Argus Program, 1089/Re248, Written in Fortran II

Description: From Abstract: "A detailed description is given of ARGUS, a FORTRAN II computer program for calculating transient temperatures in any concentric cylindrical configuration. Included are an explanation of the mathematical methods, a discussion of special features and restrictions, input and output descriptions, operating instructions, several sample problems, and the code listing."

Recrystallization in Rolled Uranium Sheet

Description: From Introduction: "To overcome the difficulties another investigation has been carried out wherein the rolling stock was subjected to step reduction and annealing treatments designed to develop a small, uniform grain size prior to the final rolling at room temperature. The results of metallographic, dilatometric, and X-ray diffraction studies of this material are given."

Status Report on the Argonne Advanced Research Reactor

Description: From Introduction: "This is a status report on the interim design and development for an advanced research reactor (AARR) that will produce a maximum thermal neutron flux of 5 x 10 to the fifteenth power neutrons/ (cm2) (sec). As a result, this report also contains sections covering shielding, plant layout, fuel charging, maintenance, and auxiliary facilities."

A Shielded Metallograph for Remote Metallography

Description: From Introduction: "This report presents the specific design requirements arising from these initial decisions, followed by description and keyed illustrations of the various features of the installation. The Bausch and Lomb Research Metallograph was the instrument chosen as being most readily adapted to the over-all plan."

Propagation of Density Disturbances in Air-Water Flow

Description: From Introduction: "In this work, a forced-circulation air-water loop was employed for investigating the behavior of void perturbations. Upon attaining steady-state conditions, disturbances in the void fraction were superimposed at very low frequencies (~0.4 cps). A better understanding of hydrodynamic transient behavior will generate more confidence in the design of boiling-water reactor systems."

Hazards Evaluation Report Associated with the Operation of EBWR at 100 MW

Description: From Introduction: "This hazards report covers the basic modifications to the EBWR plant as designed to increase the present operating design rating of 20 Mwt to a new rating of 100 Mwt. it is written as a supplement to ANL-5781 (the original hazards report) and follows the outline of that report for purposes of cross reference."
