Fuel Elements Conference, Paris, November 18-23, 1957: Book 1, Sessions 1, 2, and 3

Description: Preface: The Fuel Elements Conference held in Paris, France, November 18 to 23, 1957, under the joint sponsorship of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and the French Commissarat à l'Energie Atomique (CEA), provided an intensive review of fuel-element fabrication practices and behavior of fuel elements under in-pile irradiation and when subjected to corrosive media.

Description of a Dropping Mercury Polaroscope

Description: Abstract: " The construction and operation of a dropping mercury polaroscope developed by Quentin A. Kerns is described herein. With this polaroscope a Heyrovsky polarogram is automatically produced on the screen of a cathode ray tube during the formation of each drop at the tip of a dropping mercury electrode, a change in the resistance of the cell operates to initiate the generation of a voltage wave to be applied to the cell during the formation of the next drop during a predetermined fractional portion of the average drop formation period."

The first weighing of plutonium

Description: The following text, transcribed from the remarks of those scientists who gathered at the University of Chicago on September 10, 1967, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first weighing of plutonium, tells an important part of the story of this fascinating new element that is destined to play an increasingly significant role in the future of man.

Contact-Resistance Symposium, Bendix Aviation Corporation, Kansas City Division, Sandia Corporation, June 14, 1957, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Description: The objectives of the conference were to accomplish an interchange of information and study the determination of contact resistance. The effect of contacts on AEC production problems is discussed. Otber discussions are presented one applications of contact devices, present testing criteria, materials and process variables, process controls, and future development plans. (T.R.H.

Organic Coolant Reactor Program Quarterly Report, January 1-March 31, 1962

Description: The possible effects of a hydrogen atmosphere in reducing film deposition were studied in the large circulating loop and in rocking cell and pyrolytic capsule tests. At H/sub 2/ pressures of 200 to 400 psig no reduction in film weight deposited was observed in the loop tests, and in the pyrolytic tests film deposits were doubled. Heat conductivity of the films was much higher however. ln these high ash films the inorganic constituent was found to be alpha -Fe rather than the usual magnetite, which seems to account for the heat conductivity. Separation of benzene-insoluble material from high boiler and coolant was accomplished by centrifugation and by deposition on glass. The material was closely related to film formation. The nature of the inorganic and organic constituents of this material was examined in several analytical studies. Advances in the techniques of nuclear magnetic resonance, O/sub 2/ analysis, measurement of chromatograms, application of computers, and other methods were made. It was demonstrated by use of Fe5/sup 59/ that irradiated terphenyl under air attacks Fe rapidly and possibly the Fe is in solution as a chelate or other complex. It also was indicated by some tests that such a soluble form of Fe can figure in the formation of film and of the iron percarbide observed. The program of synthesis of pure samples of polyphenyls neared completion, and the attention was shifted to synthesis of new candidate coolants. Fused-ring structures, partially hydrog-enated, such as dihydrophenanthrene were made and proved of interest. Similar studies from the stabilizer investigation indicate the same thing. Other groups in which synthetic activity was initiated are the substituted triazines, pyridines, and other heterocyclic nonbenzenoid types. The industrial coolant candidates from petroleum and coal tar were found to be lacking in thermal stability above 700 deg F. Only the hydrodealkylated ...
