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.

Hydromagnetic Instabilities Caused by Runaway Electrons

Description: "The possibility of the excitation of hydromagnetic instabilities caused by a beam of runaway electronics is investigated. It is found that if the wave length and frequency of the wave are such that the Doppler shift of the frequency due to the runaways' motion causes the electrons to see their cyclotron frequency, and if the electric field rotates in the same direction as the electrons do about the confining magnetic field, then an instability occurs."

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.

Equipment for Measurement of Internal Temperatures in Screw Reactors

Description: Abstract: "Uranium dioxide is produced in large screw type reactors by contacting uranium trioxide with hydrogen at elevated temperatures. The temperature of the system is a critical variable and is difficult to determine due to physical arrangement of the equipment. The use of sheathed thermocouples, and the use of a mercury commutator for transmitting small electrical signals from a rotating member to stationary contacts, have permitted the recording of internal reactor temperatures while the reaction was carried out."

The Value of Nu for Fission of U²³³ by 14 Mev Neutrons as Derived from Charge Distribution Measurements

Description: Abstract: "The charge distribution for fragments from fission of U-235 induced by 14 Mev neutrons, as given by Ford, has been examined to obtain the average number of neutrons per fission. On the basis of some assumptions which seem reasonable a value NU-5.2 +/- 0.5 is obtained. Some evidence is also given which points toward the validity of the Glendenin hypothesis of charge distribution as opposed to that of Present."
