Army Gas-Cooled Reactor Systems Program Monthly Progress Report: April 1959

Description: Abstract: This monthly progress report covers the activities of the Army Gas-Cooled Reactor System Program for April 1959. The program includes a water-moderated heterogeneous reactor (Gas-Cooled Reactor Experiment I), a graphite-moderated homogeneous reactor (Gas-Cooled Reactor Experiment II), a mobile gas-cooled reactor (ML-1), and the coordination of the Gas Turbine Test Facility. [It reports] the progress of each project, the associated tests and data evaluation, the applicable design criteria, and the fabrication of reactor components" (p. 1).

Materials Testing Reactor-Engineering Test Reactor Technical Branches Quarterly Report: October 1 - December 31, 1963

Description: From summary: "Reactor fuel material consisting of U3Si particles embedded in an aluminum matrix have been examined with an electron microprobe to determine reaction between fuel particles and matrix. Partial reaction was observed with no observable tendency for the uranium or silicon to diffuse outward into the matrix.

Post-Test Physical, Chemical and Metallurgical Analysis of SNAPTRAN-3 Fuel

Description: The fuel element damage which occurred during the SNAPTRAN-3 Destructive Test of a Snap 10A/2 reactor is described. Chemical analysis of the fuel indicated that approximately 15% of the hydrogen was released and that the core flux was higher toward the center both radially and axially. Metallurgical analysis of the fuel determined the presence of the epsilon, delta, and gamma phases in the grain structure and evidence of a possible alpha or beta phase.
