Irradiation Performance of Thoria-Urania Fuel Materials: Quarterly Technical Report, Number 2, October - December 1964

Description: From introduction: "Complete exploitation of the advantages of thorium as a fertile material in thermal and particular resonant spectrum reactors has been inhibited by the lack of quantitative physical property data for thoria and thoria-urania fuels."

Corrosion Product Activity Distribution Across the Chemical Process System in the Consolidated Edison Thorium Reactor Plant

Description: A study has been performed to determine the corrosion product and water impurity activities in the CETR Chemical Process System. A simplified mathematical model is used to represent the physical situation; however, the magnitude of the activities, taken at the end of the core life to represent the most conservative case, is considered sufficiently accurate for engineering calculations.

Development and Testing of Low Cost Fuel Elements for Power Reactor Service

Description: The development of swaging and vibratory compaction process for fabrication of clad UO2 fuel rods is described. The cost is less than 50% of that for an equivalent core fabricated from pellets. The irradiation testing of vibratory filled and swaged UO2 rods is reported for burn-ups from 2,000 to 12,000 Mwd/t UO2; the results indicate that the rods are capable of excellent performance power reactors.

Liquid Metal Fuel Reactor Experiment: Quarterly Technical Report No. 1, BAW-1001, July 1, 1956 to November 15, 1956

Description: This is the first quarterly report which summarizes the project work on the Liquid Metal Fuel Reactor Experiment. As the initial contract was not signed until November, 1956, progress within this reporting period has been limited to establishing objectives, determining what research and development will be required, and selecting preliminary design parameters.

Liquid Metal Fuel Reactor Experiment Monthly Progress Statement: January 1957

Description: A monthly report summarizing work perform by Babcock & Wilcox personnel for the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. Initial contacts were made at National Reactor Testing Station and Hanford Works, design conditions for the proposed reactor vessels were reviewed, estimates of heating rates caused by radiation and the pluggage of fuel passages were computed, and design parameters for the LMFRE were established.
