Diffusion Still Analysis

Description: Report describing a diffusion still for desalination of water, which produces pure water at temperatures below the boiling point by diffusion in the presence of air. The principal advantage of the concept is great mechanical simplicity, requiring neither high vapor pressure nor vacuum equipment.

The Determination of U²³⁷ and Fission-Product Contamination in Uranium Recovered by the Redox Process

Description: Introduction: "When uranium slugs are irradiated in the Hanford piles, one of the many substances formed is U-237. It arises primarily from the reaction: U-238 (n,2n) U-237. This uranium isotope is a beta and gamma emitter with a half-life of 6.7 days. Because it is isotopic with U-238, it accompanies the uranium recovered by the Redox Process, and its concentration is, of course, not diminished by the fission-product decontamination cycles. As a consequence, the maximum total decontamination … more

A General Purpose Log Counting Rate Meter Model B

Description: Abstract: This report is a brief description of a general purpose logarithmic counting rate meter developed at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory. The theory of operation and the circuit design are discussed. The use of a diode as a logarithmic element in the integrating circuit allows extremely accurate counting rate determinations over a five decade range.

Report on a Magnetic Drive Design for the Fercleve Coporation

Description: This report discusses the development of a design for a "permanent magnet drive to couple a motor shaft with a pump impeller through a thick metallic diaphragm of small diameter. [...] The following report presents the procedures and results of the magnetic drive development up to date of cancellation and includes the general features of the design which would have been recommended if the contract had not been cancelled" (p. 1).

Pressure and Thermal Stresses at a Pipe Attachment to a Sphere

Description: Abstract: Design nomographs and equations have been prepared for determining the bending stresses and hoop stresses at the junction of a cylinder and sphere when: (1) Internal pressure exists in the sphere and (2) There is a difference in average temperature between the cylinder and the sphere. A correlation of calculated stresses and photoelastically determined stresses for models with internal pressure is presented.
