Surface Motion from an Underground Detonation

Description: Abstract: Surface and near-surface acceleration and strain were measured on a deep underground nuclear burst (Rainier Shot; 900 ft; 1.7 kt) to permit extrapolation of results to nuclear detonations of other yields under different test or employment conditions.

Survey of Los Alamos and Pueblo Canyon for Radioactive Contamination and Radio Assay Tests Run on Sewer-Water Samples and Water and Soil Samples Taken From Los Alamos and Pueblo Canyons

Description: "Report of the Survey of Los Alamos and Pueblo Canyon for radioactive contamination and radioassay tests run on sewer water samples and water and soil samples taken from Los Alamos and Pueblo Canyons." The objective of this report was to determine the extent and sources of radioactive contamination in the areas studied.

Summation Report: Recovery of Radium From K-65 Residue (23-E): Job 23

Description: Abstract: "Methods for recovering radium from K-65 residue have been investigated. A process using Versene was developed and demonstrated on a laboratory scale. In this process K-65 residue is leached with Versene solution and radium is adsorbed from the leach liquors and purified by the use of cation exchange resin."

Heat Treatment and Machinability of Beryllium Rod

Description: Purpose: "The purpose of this investigation was to determine whether or not the machinability of extruded beryllium rod could be improved by appropriate heat treatment. It was thought that this could be accomplished in the extruded Be rod by recrystallization without further growth of these grains. This should impart a certain degree of ductility to the metal. The investigations was divided into two parts: Part I - Heat Treatment of Beryllium Rod; Part II - Machinability of Beryllium Rod."

Analysis of yttrium oxide exchange samples

Description: Report detailing the results of several yttrium oxide analyses. Four different institutions were given 50 grams of yttrium oxide to analyze following the Yttrium Analytical Conference on November 7th and 8th, 1956. This report details the results of those four different institutions.

Observations on the Behavior of Hydrogen in Zirconium

Description: Abstract: "Some embrittling effects noted in Zr have been explained by the presence of hydrogen. This phenomenon was initially correlated with the existence of a second phase in the microstructure. The amount of this phase is reduced by vacuum annealing and shows a direct correlation with the hydrogen content of the specimen. X-ray and electron-diffraction evidence identifies the phase as ZrH. Observations are given on the solubilities, diffusion rates and equilibrium pressures of hydrogen in zirconium, and the application of these data to the removal of hydrogen."

Optimum Conditions for the "Hot Zone" Volatilization of TCl₄

Description: Abstract: "The data reported herein furnish a qualitative comparison of the rapidity of vaporization of TCl4 at various "hot zone" temperatures as well as a measure of the chlorine evolution attributed to its thermal decomposition. The presence of impurities in the TCl4 detracts from the significance of the reported chlorine evolution. The temperature recommended for rapid volatilization is 750 C at which TCl4 underwent thermal decomposition amounting to no more than 0.2% by weight."

Performance of the Disassembly Equipment : NYX Test No. 2.9.1, 2.9.3

Description: Abstract: "The NYX testing of the component disassembly equipment comprised repeated operation of both the quatrefoil disassembly machine and the foil press and shear to evaluate the suitability of these machines to perform their design function with reliability and convenience of operation. During testing, both design and operational deficiencies were found and corrected in the NYX equipment. In general, both machines operated satisfactorily after modification."

The U²²⁷ Collateral Series

Description: The following report describes data from the continuation of investigations which led to the observation and characterization of five artificial radioactive chains collateral to the natural radioactive families that has lead to the partial identification of one additional chain, collateral to the actinium family.

The Resistivity of Cu₃Au During Neutron Irradiation

Description: Report discussing an experiment in which samples of initially ordered and disordered copper-gold alloy were exposed to the neutron flux of a graphite moderated nuclear reactor. "Two specimens were irradiated at the same time and at the same position in the reactor. Their temperature was controlled at 80°C. Electrical resistivity measurements were made on the specimens during the course of the irradiation."

A Rapid Method for Determination of Water in TO₃

Description: Summary: A set of conditions is described for a ten minute determination of water in TO₃ by ignition and absorption of the evolved water in magnesium perchlorate. Complete conversion to T₃O₃ is obtained under these conditions, so that total loss on ignition and total T (plus non-volatile impurity) content may also be obtained. It has been found unnecessary to employ Cu foil to prevent interference by nitrates, which may be present with a nitrate/water ratio as high as 5, and in an amount that does not exceed 100 mg.

Recovery of Uranium From Oil Distillation Residue

Description: Abstract: The complete development of an effective process for recovery of the uranium in the residues from distillation of used Kinney and diffusion pump oils or similar oils is described. After considerable study and experimentation with several methods, a successful procedure has been developed. The recommended procedure embodies solution of the residues in trichlorethylene followed by extraction with nitric acid. Recovery of uranium is better than 99 percent effective and the method may be applied directly to contaminated oils as well as to their distillation residues.
