AXO detonator. Quarterly report, June--August, 1969

Description: A factorial spark gap detonator study is presented, with the results. UK PETN, (MF 81/10, 6,200 cm{sup 2}/g) at 1.12 g/cm{sup 3} had a higher voltage breakdown and a higher power deposition than others in the test. A somewhat unusual firing system employed for these tests is described. The purpose of the experiment was for determining the effect of specific surface areas (or particle sizes), density, and energy input (including rate of energy input) upon various dependent variables.

HE calorimetry. Quarterly report, April--June, 1969

Description: The 48-inch detonation sphere confined the gaseous products resulting from the discharge of approximately one-half pound (225 g) of an HE (PETN) under investigation. Product analysis, combined with calorimetric measurements will provide data regarding the detonation processes. Results of the initial HE detonation are still in the process of evaluation and tabulation. The final summary of this information will be instrumental in the direction of future experimental endeavor. Investigation at Pantex will be in collaboration with and guided by the research in progress at LRL. A new lid, still in the design stage, must be fabricated to make the detonation sphere compatible with the anticipated need in the testing of future explosives. This will necessitate the modification of the vacuum lines, but the extent of this modification is not known at this time.

Explosive performance. Quarterly report, July--September, 1969

Description: This project is for experimentally determining the detonation pressure, etc., of explosives. The detonation pressure of several sizes of PBX 9404 charges was determined using the aquarium technique. Pressure data (from the larger shots) were generally in good agreement with the quoted values for PBX 9404 in these geometries. The small unconfined charge pressure values were consistently about 6% below the accepted 375 kbar value. Experimental shock velocity and computed pressure data are reported.

Formulation facility. Quarterly report, April--June, 1969

Description: Two 250-pound batches of LX-09 were made for BAECP for special studies. Twenty Micronizer runs were made to ascertain the effects of various fluids and wetting gents upon the stability of high surface area PETN and to establish the limits within which repeatability can be expected. One sample, after being treated with the wetting agent dodecyl sodium sulfate, stabilized at 7,400 cm{sup 2}/gm after the 300-hour bake at 100 C. A study was begun to determine the effects of deaeration upon the rheological and firing properties of Extex. Rheological data indicate that deaeration has little effect on extrudability. Firing data are currently being obtained.

Richland O2 R and D Program: Semiannual report summary

Description: The complete semiannual R and D report consists of this summary and two companion reports, one from DUN which covers reactors and another from ARHCO which covers separations. These companion reports are listed in the set of references in the back of this summary. This semiannual report covers progress in R and D during the first half of FY 1970. Development work on the Basic Production and Product Flexibility Programs has been consistent with funding levels. Increased emphasis has been placed on N Reactor operational problems as well as on assessing the K reactor inlet cooling piping integrity and zirconium hydriding problems. Work has been in progress to improve the Purex plant extraction performance by in-plant testing of the Zirflex Tonic effect. Developmental work was under way to establish either enriched uranium or nondefense plutonium (or both) as a reactor fuel and to provide further technology for the production of high-purity plutonium-238. Activities on the Environmental and Regulatory Technology Program are engaged in developing technology to assure safe operation of the Hanford project facilities. Major emphasis was placed on the study of metal-water (irradiated N fuels) reactions to simulate loss of coolant conditions. Increased emphasis has been placed on the Waste Management Program with intent to develop technology for a substantial reduction in releases of low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste to the environment. Emphasis has been maintained on the development program for purifying and encapsulating fission-product strontium and cesium. Efforts to reduce the salt content of Purex wastes have been increased because of the projected waste management cost savings and concomitant improved strontium recovery.

Thermal properties and chemical reactivity. [Quarterly report], October--December 1969

Description: (Explosives are studied.) Impurities in FEFO and relatively pure FEFO fractions are being obtained by preparative gas chromatography. Use of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry to identify the impurities in FEFO was not successful. Gas chromatography analysis of gas samples taken from the coupon test are reported. Analysis from the third compression type coupon test is reported. The LX-09 lost some of its mechanical strength and was a dark purple. Some of the problems of measuring sample temperature in the high pressure DTA are discussed. DTA thermograms at ambient and elevated pressures are reported for FEFO, nitromethane, Na{sub 3}PO{sub 4}{center_dot}10 H{sub 2}O, and NH{sub 4}H{sub 2}PO{sub 4}.

Calorimetric assay of {sup 60}Co sources from C-overbore facilities

Description: Cobalt irradiations were completed in two C-Reactor overbore tubes in support of Mission and Program investigations of isotope production. Tubes 1459 and 464 were each charged with approximately 4015 grams of cobalt in strips similar to BNL pieces described in a separate report. After discharge, the strips were placed in an underwater calorimeter to determine the heat contribution from isotopic decay, thereby allowing an assay of cobalt-60 concentrations. The cobalt-60 produced in tube 1464-C was retained by Douglas United Nuclear for source material in an underwater gamma irradiator at KE-Reactor; the remaining cobalt, from tube 1459-C, was shipped to Battelle-Northwest for further experiments and applications. A total of 396,400 Ci of cobalt-60 was produced in tube 1459-C and 272,700 Ci in tube 1464-C during the irradiations. Production in tube 1459-C occurred at the rate of 0.637 Ci/gm per 100 MWd/T of adjacent tube power; production in tube 1464-C occurred at the rate of 0.670 Ci/gm per 100 MWd/T of adjacent tube power. The total irradiation time was 880.813 full power days for tube 1459-C and 569.010 full power days for tube 1464-C.
