MTR Technical Branch Quarterly Report for First Quarter - 1954

Description: The following report is a quarterly report for first quarter in 1954 for the Phillips Petroleum Company. During the first quarter of 1954 considerable progress was made on the design, construction and testing required to initiate work on new programs. The result of this is the beginning construction and design on the Reactivity Measurement Facility.

The Quantitative Techniques of Scintillation Spectrometry as Applied to the Calibration of Standard Sources

Description: Report presenting "the determination of absolute gamma emission rates for monoenergetic gamma emitters using a single-channel scintillation spectrometer. Examples are given for Cr⁵¹, Cs¹³⁷, Nb⁹⁵, and Zn⁶⁵. Sources of error are discussed and steps being taken to improve the accuracy of the method are described" (p. 1).

Production of Xe¹³¹, Xe¹³⁵, Kr⁸⁵m and Kr⁸⁵ From Plated-Out U²³⁵ in the MTR Core

Description: This report discusses details of the release of Xe¹³¹, Xe¹³⁵, Kr⁸⁵m and Kr⁸⁵ into the process water system of the MTR along with the development of high process water radioactivity. It is suggested that this release followed the fissioning of U²³⁵. Equations that produce the rate of release of fission products is given and approximate rate of release is represented in a graph.

Evaluation of Sampling Variables : Vessel C-102

Description: Purpose: "In order to determine the optimum procedure for sampling the coarse-feed tank (C-102) of the NP and MTR process, a systematic series of tests has been conducted to measure the extent of solution stratification and effect of air-sparging as a means of vessel homogenization."

Flux Distributions and Critical k [infinity] Values for Cylindrical Reactors Simulation the MTR

Description: From summary: "In order to estimate the effect of placing bismuth and thorium layers near the MTR core, radial flux distributions and k[infinity] values were calculated for cylindrical reactors having cylindrical layers of these materials of the same height as the core and beryllium reflector and placed either next to the core or embedded in the beryllium reflector."

Corrosion of Aluminum and Beryllium by MTR Canal Water

Description: Introduction: "In the early operation of the WTR severe canal corrosion of dummy fuel assemblies and a beryllium A-piece caused a great deal of concern as to the possible effects of long-time canal storage on such elements. A short-term experimental program was started to determine the causes of this corrosion and to correct them before any irradiated fuel elements had to be stored in the canal. The results of this program are presented here."

Proposal for an Advanced Engineering Test Reactor : ETR II

Description: Report containing "the results of a study which was directed at providing additional experimental loop irradiation space for the AEC-DRD testing program. It was a premise that the experiments allocated to this reactor were those that could not be accommodated in the MTR, ETR or in existing commercial test reactors" (p. 5).

Source Strength Information for Shielding and Stack Effluent Calculations: a Standard Practices Guide

Description: Report presenting the curves and methods used "for determining gross fission product gamma energy in Mev/sec-watt, gross fission product beta decay in curies/sec-watt, delayed uranium fission neutrons in neutrons/sec-watt and N16 and N17 decay in photons/sec-cc of water" (p. 1).

Standard Practices Guide for Writing Experimental Operating Manuals

Description: This is a sample operating manual designed to aid experimenters in writing operating manuals for MTR and ETR experiments. It contains what is felt to be the necessary information for operating a particular experiment. One of the main functions of an operating manual is to provide quick reference to material needed in an emergency. It is believed this type of manual provides the required information without an excessive amount of bulky, surplus material.
