Electronics progress report, April 1--30, 1949

Description: Prospectus` of Band Pass Amplifiers for Proportional Counters and Instrumentation for the Study of the Electrodeposition Potential of Radioactive Elements have been submitted for review and approval. An error was found in calculations for the band pass amplifier discussed in Group 9 of the Electronics Progress Report,MLM-306, March 1--31, 1949, on the Cathode-Follower Probe. New calculations have been made and a band pass filter constructed to match the new values. Work on the cathode-follower circuit for coupling a Boron-wall tube to its linear amplifier indicated that the limit to the sharpness of a pulse which could be achieved was possibly caused by poor amplitude versus frequency response of the linear amplifier. To check this theory, modifications were made on an existing scaler which resulted in a frequency response flat up to 4.5 megacycles. Plans are being made to improve the amplitude versus frequency of the higher frequencies. The response curve shows a slightly rising characteristic at 4.5 megacycles and an attenuation at 7 megacycles. Construction of the rf generator has been resumed in an effort to deliver the finished product to Group 4 by approximately May 6, 1949. The meter circuit will measure relative rf output voltage instead of absolute voltage. The prospectus for the research on high speed scaling circuits has been completed and the prospectus for research on the high speed trigger pairs is being completed. The prospectus` of Parallel Plate Alpha Chambers and Scintillation Counting has also been completed.

Electronics progress report, March 1--31, 1949

Description: With the completion of tests of the prototype cathode-follower, it was decided to produce three more models. These have been constructed and pass the same pulse as that of the prototype. Drawings are being made of these units. By the time these units had been completed, the amplifier of the scaler was modified so that its frequency response was essentially flat up to 4.5 megacycles. Using this amplifier and the cathode-follower, a study of the pulse shapes was made and four different pulse shapes were found to be obtainable. A band pass network between the B-wall tube and the input of the cathode-follower provided a very substantial improvement over the shunt peaking network with a band pass of 1.8 to 6.5 megacycles and provided clean, uniform pulses. Plans are being made to experiment with a filter of narrower band pass, which, if satisfactory, will produce greater amplitude. When the final band pass has been determined, a combination of shunt peaking and band pass networks should provide a net gain of 30% in amplitude. The result of this research is to provide an immediate improvement in resolution loss and a possibility of realizing a still lower minimum resolving time when the other components in the counting system have been improved. With the amplitude obtained and the use of pass bands of frequencies, it may be possible to develop a B-wall amplifier using one stage of amplification.

Production research progress report, March 1--31, 1949

Description: A study has been made of the time and temperature required to anneal Teflon and Fluorothene. It has been found that, by proper annealing, the strains my be removed and cold-flow prevented. The disk stopcocks prepared with annealed plastics have not developed leaks on standing. A description is given of the modified slug-dissolver heating unit which has been installed in the Bismuth-II Process Line. Work has been continued on the absorption spectra of bismuth in hydrochloric acid solutions. Two methods have been described for the interpretation of absorption spectra data. The transmission curve of the Evelyn colorimeter filters have been measured on the Cary recording spectrophotometer. The resulting curves should aid in the selection of the proper filter for a given calorimetric analyses. A brief outline for the proposed method of decontaminating platinum has been presented.

Recovery of uranium and plutonium from Redox off-standard aqueous waste streams

Description: In the operation of countercurrent extraction columns as in the Redox process, it is possible, and probable, that from unexpected behaviour of a column, operator error, colloid formation, etc., there will result from time to time excessive losses of uranium and plutonium in the overall process. These losses will naturally accumulate in the waste streams, particularly in the aqueous waste streams. If the loss is excessively high, and such lost material can be recovered by some additional method, then if economical and within reason, the recovered materials ran be returned to a ISF column for further processing. The objective of this work has been to develop such a method to recover uranium and plutonium from such off-standard waste streams in a form whereby the uranium send plutonium can be returned to the process line and subsequently purified and separated.

A PreliminaryReport on the Mechanism of the Decomposition ofDiacetyl Peroxide in Acetic Acid

Description: The decomposition of diacetyl peroxide in acetic acid-2-C{sup 14} has been studied, The activity of the products in general confirmed the mechanism of the reaction as proposed by Kharasch and Gladstone, The presence and distribution of activity in the methyl acetate produced in this reaction is not explained by the previously proposed mechanism. There was no appreciable exchange of acetic acid and diacetyl peroxide under the conditions of the reaction. Essentially no exchange of methyl acetate and acetic acid was observed when those reagents mere heated at 100 for five hours.

Ditching Investigation of a 1/18-Scale Model of the North American B-45 Airplane

Description: An investigation of a 1/18-scale dynamically similar model of the North American B-45 airplane was made to observe the ditching behavior and determine the proper landing technique to be used in an emergency water landing. Various conditions of damage were simulated to determine the behavior which probably would occur in a full-scale ditching. The behavior of the model was determined from high-speed motion-picture records, time-history acceleration records, and visual observations. It was concluded that the airplane should be ditched at the maximum nose-high attitude with the landing flaps full down for minimum landing speed. During the ditching, the nose-wheel and bomb-bay doors probably will be torn away and the rear of the fuselage flooded. A violent dive will very likely occur. Longitudinal decelerations of approximately 5g and vertical accelerations of approximately -6g (including gravity) will be experienced near the pilots' compartment. Ditching braces installed in the bomb bay will tend to improve the behavior slightly but will be torn away along with the bomb-bay doors. A hydroflap installed ahead of the nose-wheel doors will eliminate the dive and failure of the nose-wheel doors, and substantially reduce the motions and accelerations.

Flight Test of the Aerojet 7KS-6000 T-27 Jato Rocket Motor

Description: A flight test of the Aero jet Engineering Corporation's 7KS-6000 T-27 Jato rocket motor was conducted at the Langley Pilotless Aircraft Research Station at Wallops Island, Va, to determine the flight performance characteristics of the motor. The flight test imposed an absolute longitudinal acceleration of 9.8 g upon the rocket motor at 2.8 seconds after launching. The total impulse developed by the motor was 43,400 pound-seconds, and the thrusting time was 7.58 seconds. The maximum thrust was 7200 pounds and occurred at 4.8 seconds after launching. No thrust irregularities attributable to effects of the flight longitudinal acceleration were observed. Certain small thrust irregularities occurred in the flight test which appear to correspond to irregularities observed in static tests conducted elsewhere. A hypothesis regarding the origin of these small irregularities is presented.

Refrigeration System Used in Mercury Isotope Collections

Description: From introduction: During 1948, the Isotope Research and Production Division undertook to obtain small quantities of nearly pure mercury isotopes by electromagnetic isotope separation. The possible use of a mercury isotope of even-numbered mass to establish an international standard of length required an isotopic purity greater than 99 per cent. It, became apparent that this degree of separation could only be achieved by preventing random diffusion of un-ionized mercury which otherwise would contaminate the isotope collectors.
