Calculations on U235 Fission Product Decay Chains

Description: Report of equations for calculating decay of U235. The introduction states" Calculations have been made on the U235 fission product decay schemes. The results for a typical example, that of a reactor operating at 1000 kilowatts for 180 days, have been tabulated and graphed. General formulae have been used so that the results can be applied for any power level and any time of irradiation" (p. 2).

Radiation Survey, Columbia University, Van De Graaff

Description: Abstract: During March 1958, representatives of the health and Safety Laboratory, New York Operations Office, visited Columbia University to make stray radiation measurement at the Van de Graff accelerator. A radiation survey was performed at the Van de Graaff electrostatic generator at Columbia University. The survey results do not indicate a particular need for additional shielding at this time. It is recommended that the analyzer area of the beam room should not be occupied during beam operations and the present interlock system should be modified by the installation of a photocell interlock as shown on the included plan.

The Sequential Analysis of Ten Nuclides Occurring in Long Range Fallout Debris

Description: Abstract : Methods for the chemical separation of strontium, barium, cesium, cerium, yttrium, zirconium, niobium, and tungsten from complex matrices are described. Procedures for the radiometric determination of the longer-lived isotopes of these elements are outlined. Inert carriers are added and the sample is dissolved by fusion with sodium carbonate. The melt is leached first with water and then with hydrochloric acid. The elements are recovered from these fractions by a series of wet chemical and ion exchange procedures, and gravimetric and radiometric determinations performed.

Some Variable Contributors to Natural Background

Description: It was suggested that radon concentrations in air and potassium fertilizers on the ground contribute appreciably to natural background radiation levels. The effect on natural background gamma radiation from radon and its associated daughters in equilibrium and from potassium in fertilizers has been calculated and found to be negligible. Background radiation intensities have been assumed to be on the order of 10 [mu]rad/hr.

Handbook on Air Cleaning Particulate Removal

Description: Handbook developed for Atomic Energy Commission personnel to provide current information on air cleaning methods and criteria for judging their effectiveness. The information is limited to particulate removal and does not cover the fields of ventilation or the removal of gaseous contaminants. The technical report includes discussions of the behavior of aerosols in air cleaning, air cleaning equipment, the performance and evaluation of air cleaning equipment, and special problems involved in the cleaning of radioactive aerosols.

Assay of ICPP Uranium Solutions

Description: Abstract: "The method of non-destructive assay for uranium is being developed for application to CPP solutions. The equipment has been calibrated for product strength solutions and used for assaying some "unknowns". Additional work has also been done on solutions diluted to 1/10 of product strength. Experimental data on calibration, assaying, and reproducibility tests are given. It appears feasible to obtain data with 1 per cent standard deviation on product solutions with the present facility. Investigations are continuing on solutions down to 0.1 gram/liter."

Summary Report: AEC Reference Fuel-Processing Plant

Description: From introduction: The primary purpose of this report is to record the bases chosen in setting the Commission's policy on processing charges to assure that individual charges are on a consistent basis in conformance with the policy. Secondly, it may aid reactor operators in estimating the AEC processing charges for a variety of fuels and reactor conditions. It may also be of interest to potential chemical processors by showing the approach followed in developing these charges.
