Ionium Recovery Plant Design Report: Topical Report

Description: From introduction: At the request of the AEC, a process was developed for the concentration of the thorium content of pitchblende raffinate cake, and a plant design was developed for the production of a thorium concentrate containing 5000 grams of ionium (thorium-230) per year. This report describes the experimental work and presents the design calculations based upon it.

Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance Basic Data for Eau Claire NTMS Quadrangle, Wisconsin; Minnesota

Description: From abstract: Results of a reconnaissance geochemical survey of the Eau Claire Quadrangle, Wisconsin; Minnesota are reported. Field and laboratory data are presented for 565 groundwater samples, 680 stream sediment samples, and 667 stream water samples. Statistical and areal distributions of uranium and other possible uranium-related variables are displayed. A generalized geologic map of the survey area is provided and pertinent geologic factors which may be of significance in evaluating the potential for uranium mineralization are briefly discussed.

Uranium Occurrences of Gila County, Arizona

Description: From purpose and scope: This report is designed to summarize the available information on the geology and ore reserves of the uranium deposits. Detailed geological work has been confined largely to those areas which contain the more promising uranium occurrences with at least 80 percent of such work being concentrated in the Sierra Ancha district.

Reconnaissance of Radioactive Rocks of Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeastern New York

Description: From abstract: In 1948, 7,662 miles of roadside rocks and soils in Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeastern New York were traversed with a car-mounted Geiger-Mueller counter. The observed distribution of the abnormally radioactive rocks and soils is limited to certain areas, herein called "radioactive provinces," that are separated from each other by areas of essentially nonradioactive rock.

Reconnaissance for Trace Elements in North Dakota and Eastern Montana

Description: From abstract: A reconnaissance for sources of radioactive material in North Dakota and eastern Montana was made in 1948. This reconnaissance was followed by a more detailed survey of parts of Golden Valley and Slope counties, southwestern North Dakota, in June 1949. The radioactivity of representative sections of all formations known to be exposed in the area and of three manganiferous spring deposits was determined with portable Geiger-Mueller counters. At 86 localities 82 samples were taken of these formations and also of 10 ground and surface waters.

An Elementary Review of the Mathieu-Hill Equation of Real Variable Based on Numerical Solutions

Description: Abstract: description is given of a large number of trajectories of Mathieu's equation made on the ENIAC in 1948 and available at BRL. A large chart describing the behaviour of the solutions is given. The occasion is taken to review the essentials of the Mathieu theory for the benefit of the occasional user-proceeding from the point of view of an inspection of the numerical data.

A Reversing Logarithmic DC Amplifier

Description: Purpose: Automatic recording equipment was designed for use with a high temperature Sykes experiment in which calorimetric measurements were to be made to temperatures approaching 2000* C. At such high temperatures, radiation becomes the dominant mechanism for heat transfer. The temperature differences which are used to determine the magnitude of this transfer no longer are directly proportional to it, but must be related by the Stefan-Boltzman law of radiation.

A Remotely Controlled Welding Device for Joining Stainless Steel Tubes

Description: Abstract: The design and testing of experimental equipment for remotely joining stainless steel tubing by heliarc welding is described. This apparatus consists of a modified heliarc welding torch which is hydraulically controlled to maintain constant arc voltage. A suitable arc voltage sensing and control amplifier circuit was developed for this application.

A General Purpose Log Counting Rate Meter Model B

Description: Abstract: This report is a brief description of a general purpose logarithmic counting rate meter developed at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory. The theory of operation and the circuit design are discussed. The use of a diode as a logarithmic element in the integrating circuit allows extremely accurate counting rate determinations over a five decade range.
