REDUCTION OF CUPRIC OXIDE BY HYDROGEN. I. FUNDAMENTAL KINETICS

Description: Basic studies of the kinetics of the reduction of copper oxide were made to establish the effect of the solid phase on the over-all reaction kinetics The reaction CuO + H/sub 2/ at the only rea Cu + H/sub 2/O consisted of an induction stage, an acceleration or autocatalytic stage terminating at about 35% reduction of the exide, and a decreasing-rate stage The reduction rates for each stage were dependent on the nature of the initial oxide, the degree of subdivision of the oxide, and the temperature but were independent of the mass of the oxide phase. Addition of the reaction product copper had no measurable effect on the reaction. Water vapor in concentrations of 25 mg per liter of H prevented reduction at 112 ction prod- C The inhibiting effect decreased rapidly as the temperature was increased and disappeared entirely at 190 ction prod- C. Once reduction bad started. water vapor had practically no effect The acceleration and decay stages were very closely approximated by a semiempirical equation based on the initial reaction occurring on certain active nuclei followed by a rapid growth of these nuclei by a branching-chain mechanism. The reduction rate reached a maximum and subsequentlv decreased as considerable interference occurred among the branching nuclei. Arrhenius plots gave an activation energy- of 13.5 plus or minus 1.2);cal for the reduction. (auth)

SM-2 REACTOR CORE AND VESSEL REVIEW REPORT FOR PERIOD DECEMBER 15, 1959 TO MARCH 18, 1960

Description: The SM-2 core lifetime was calculated and stuck rod criteria formulated. The control system could shutdown the core under the most adverse conditions with any single rod stuck out. The one-half-inch Eu/sub 2/O/sub 3/ flux supressors adequately supressed the power spike at the bottom of the core. The nuclear effects of increasing the dimensione of the fuel matrix were calculated. A new analysis of various reactivity measuremerts performed durirg the SM-2 critical experiments was made to test the validity of the calculational modes. Twodimensional temperature distributions for the stainless steel vessel shell and flange and for the SM-2 control rod plates were plotted. The loss of flow experiment was completed on the SM-1 at Fort Belvoir, and the results agreed with analytical predictions. The SM-2 fuel element, control rod, core support structure, and vessel designs were completed. Three steel mills indicated they could supply low cobalt, low tantalum type 347 stainless steel. Corrosion testing of irradiated boron-stainless steel was reactivated. Corrosion and impact testing of nut end bolting materials was scheduled. Dysprosium oxide was considered as an alternate absorber material. Two modified SM-2 fuel aesemblies were fabricated for testing in the Westinghouse Test Reactor loop, and two fuel elements were fabricated for insertion in the SM-1 core. Work on controlled addition of a burnable poison, such as ZrB/sub 2/, in fuel plates was continued. Procedures for welding fuel plates to side plates were completed. Automatic weld sequence timing was adopted for improvirg product quality. Pressure losses through the complete flow circuit in the reactor were recalculated and the pressure drop analysis brought up to date. Good flow distribution in the control rod fuel element was obtained in a single element rig. Methods of temperature regulation and corrosion control were established. Extended SM-2 critical experiments were initiated. Core support design modifications …
