On The Steady-State Thermal Stresses in Cylindrical Fuel Pins Due to Axial Variations in Their Internal Heat-Generation Rate

Description: From Introduction: "Specifically, we shall be concerned with the case of a solid right circular cylinder of infinite axial extent, having a stress-free outer boundary, being cooled by a temperature-independent boundary conductance, and having an axial heat-generation rate of form shown in Fig. 1. The inclusion of a radial dependence proportional to I^0(r/L) is only a minor complication in solving the required heat-transfer problem and, for reference, has been included in the solution for the temperature field to be found in Section II below."

Heat Transfer, Flow Instability, and Critical Heat Flux For Water in a Small Tube At 200 psia

Description: From Abstract: Report discussing "the effects of developing two-phase flow regimes in a constant-pressure drop system are shown in recorded traces from a fast-response flow transducer: the mass velocity decreases and transfer-surface superheat increases with increasing steam quality."

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."

A Practical Approach to Availability and Irreversibility

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this paper is to shed additional light on the techniques of a Second Law Analysis. The stimulus for writing this paper came from questions asked and difficulties that occurred during lectures on the subject at the graduate level. This paper utilizes Keenan's basic approach but presents the material with emphasis upon a clear definition of the work associated with each subsystem in the process."

Irradiation of an Aluminum Alloy-Clad Ceramic Pellet-Fueled Plate

Description: From Introduction: "An experiment, designated MTR-W10, was designed to determine the effects of high burnup on the cladding and fuel of an aluminum-1% nickel alloy (M-388)-clad ceramic pellet-fuelded plate if the type manufactured at Argonne for the BORAX-IV core. Conditions of irradiation were selected to allow local boiling at the high flux end of the plate at a pressure of 600 psig."

Testing of Containment Capabilities of Reinforced Concrete-Shielded Enclosures

Description: From Summary: "The strains in the walls and ceiling of Cell No. 5 were recorded with 39 SR-4 strain gages strategically placed on reinforcing steel. Table I summarizes the comparative results without including correction for stress concentrations. The general pattern of cell behavior at 10 psig, as summarized in Table I, is shown in Figs. 10, 11, 12."

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."
