Report on the Shearing, Dissolution and Analysis of GRIP-II Rod 79-453 (validation rod). Light Water Breeder Reactor Proof-of-Breeding Analytical Support Project

Description: This report covers the processing and analysis of the fuel-bearing section (M-5138) of an irradiated experimental Light Water Breeder Reactor fuel rod, GRIP-II rod No. 79-453; this section has been designated the Validation Rod. Process steps included precision shearing of the rod into eight comminuted segments, dissolution of the segments, and chemical and radiometric analyses of the resulting solutions. The shearing and dissolution were carried out fully remotely in an existing pilot-scale facility installed in a shielded cell. Data are provided on physical parameters of the rod section and segments, uranium assays and isotopic abundances, and selected fission products. An error analysis of the individual measurements and analyses is included.

Report on the Workshop on Atomic and Plasma Physics Requirements for Heavy Ion Fusion : Argonne National Laboratory, December 13-14, 1979

Description: Atomic, molecular, and plasma physics areas that are relevant to inertial confinement fusion by energetic heavy ions are identified. Discussions are confined to problems related to the design of heavy ion accelerators, accumulation of ions in storage rings, and the beam transport in a reactor vessel.

Report Submitted to the Trail Smelter Arbitral Tribunal

Description: From Forward: "The first part of this report discusses the details of the plant equipment and procedure. The second part of the report discusses in detail the relationship between between meteorological conditions in the valley and atmospheric diffusion processes. The third part gives the provisional operating regimes in force during the investigation, the amount of sulfur fixed and amount emitted to the atmosphere, and summary of data from the permanent recorders."

Representative operating charts of propellers tested in the NACA 20-foot propeller-research tunnel

Description: Report presents the results of tests of full-scale propellers made in the 20-foot propeller-research tunnel (PRT) at the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory. The power coefficients of all dual-rotating propellers in the report represent the sum of the power coefficients of the front and rear propellers and are for the test conditions in which blade angles of the front and rear propellers were set to absorb approximately equal power at peak efficiency only.

Requirements for auxiliary stiffeners attached to panels under combined compression and shear

Description: Panels of aluminum alloy sheets, framed by side and end stiffeners, were subjected to combined loading by means of offset knife edges applying loads to top and bottom end plates with reacting forces against the end plates supplied by laterally acting rollers. The test specimens were 17S-T aluminum alloy shoots 0.040 inch thick in panels of 10-inch width and three different lengths (approximately 10, 26, and 30 inch). Data were obtained for the bowing of transverse and longitudinal ribs of rectangular cross section and varying depths mounted on one side of the sheet only, for several ratios of compression to shear loads. Limiting values of the moments of inertia were calculated from these measurements. The experimental values exceed the theoretical values given by Timoshenko for the case of simply supported sheets with uniformly distributed boundary stresses. The work reported includes measurements of the effective shear moduli of the nine test panels with and without ribs. These data are compared with values published by Lahdo and Wagner.

Requirements for satisfactory flying qualities of airplanes

Description: Report discusses the results of an analysis of available data to determine what measured characteristics are significant in defining satisfactory flying qualities, what characteristics are reasonable to require of an airplane, and what influence the various design features have on the observed flying qualities.

Research and design problems introduced by increased power output

Description: In what follows the question of the number and geometrical arrangement of the cylinders so important in the design of high performance power units will be considered from various points of view. A discussion will be given of the possibilities of the various working processes and an investigation will be made of possible means for improving the continuous operation and take-off performance, particularly the methods of supercharging, increasing the r.p.m., and employing the two-stroke-cycle engine. Finally, the question of lowered fuel consumption will be gone over briefly. The subject will be treated under four headings: I) Considerations on the engine layout; II) Increase in output per given swept volume; III) Improvement in the take-off performance; IV) Lowering of the fuel consumption.

Research and Development Progress Report

Description: "The St. Louis Refinery produced its first UO3 and UO2 in 1942, and its first UF4 and U metal in 1943. The accent has always been on production, and the function of the extremely small research and development groups has been to aid the production units in their job. ... Recently, there has been a growing realization of the need for a broader and more detailed knowledge of both the chemical and technological aspects of all phases of work. ... This is the first of a series of quarterly progress reports on the research and development activities at the St. Louis Refinery."--p. 6
