Analysis of quality certification data: WARP, TFC and delta OD{sub 2} as a function of reactor operating conditions

Description: This report is the second in a series on the definition of performance of irradiated fuel elements as measured by the Quality Certification Program. Objectives of this analysis are to establish empirical mathematical relations which fit observed data from > 2000 fuel elements measurements for WARP, TFC, and DELTA OD{sub 2}, as a function of reactor conditions (power, surface temperature, time).

DESIGN STUDIES ON CESIUM-137 AS A SOURCE FOR HIGH LEVEL GAMMA IRRADIATORS. Quarterly Progress Report No. 3 Covering the Period from December 1, 1959 to March 1, 1960

Description: Experiments were carried out on a Cs/sup 137/ plaque source of 40 x 40 x 1/2 inches. Measurements were made of dose distributions in water and of photon spectral distributions in paraffin. For 9-inch-thick water siab absorbers without air gaps, it was found from the preliminary experiments that the depth dose uniformity can be varied over the range 1.10 to 1.40. The absolute dose rates found were in general agreement with design predictions which indicate irradiator efficiencies in the region o… more

An evaluation of five possible HCR sleeve materials for K Reactor

Description: The graphite stacks of the K reactors have been distorted to the extent that steel balls from the ball 3X system have entered some of the horizontal control rod channels and have interferred with the proper operation of the control system. One possible method of eliminating this potential hazard and attendant recurring production loss would be to place stationary sleeves around the horizontal control rods. Liners or sleeves in the vertical-ball and rod channels would prevent future leakage of b… more

Experimental Gas Cooled Reactor-Creep Test, Agot Graphite

Description: Tests were conducted to determine the cumulative and permanent deflection of a beam subjected to two-point loading for (1) ambient temperature- atmospheric environment, and (2) 800 deg F-atmospheric environment, for 8OO psi maximum flexural stresses. Deflection curves are given for five specimens. An analysis of the data indicated that if the core graphite creeps while at EGCR conditions by approximately 1.5 times its creep rate at ambient temperature, the stresses will level off below 1000 psi… more

Fission of Gold With 112-Mev C{sup 12} Ions: A Yield-Mass and Charge- Distribution Study

Description: Fission prcduct cross sections were measured radiochemically and mass- spectrometrically for gold bombsrded with 112-Mev C/sup 12/ ions. Cross sections for 43 nuclides were measured for elements from nickel to barium. Thirty-six yields are either primary fission product yields (independent yields) or were corrected (with less than 25% correction) so as to represent independent yields. The independent yields were empirically systematized and a yield-mass curve was constructed. The yield-mass cur… more

High-Temperature Irradiation of Metals and Graphite in Flowing Helium

Description: As part of the coolant-core evaluation studies in an early phase of the Maritime Gas-Cooled Reactor program, nickel. K-Monel, niobium-1 wt.% zirconium, and graphite were irradiated in a convective flow of helium. A capsule of novel design was used to study the corrosion of the metals at 1500 and 960 ction prod- F in a 243-hr BRR experiment. Four heliumfilled quartz tori, containing the specimens, were encapsulated in a stainless steel capsule. A convective flow of helium was maintained in the c… more

Loading and operating conditions for NIN-1 and NIE-1 elements in the KER loops under PT-IP-377-A

Description: This document provides the loading and operating conditions for eight 16-inch or five 24-inch elements, either natural NIN-1 or .947% enriched NIE-1, in any of the four KER loops. The loadings are tabulated; operating conditions for either charge in KER 2, 3, 4, or 1 are given in figures.

Low Energy Nuclear Physics : Second Annual Report for the Period February 1, 1959 to January 31, 1960

Description: The general expression for the angular correlation between radiations produced in successive cascade transitions is derived by use of Racah algebra. The result is then specialized to the beta - gamma correlation and applied to two cases in which additional properties of the photon are specified, the circular polarization and the plane polarization. The prospect of testing time reversal and determining nuclear matrix element ratios by beta - gamma correlation measurements is explored using the n… more

A Mathematical and Statistical Approach to the Design and Analysis of a Reactor Containment Vessel Pressure Test

Description: This report discusses the mathematical and statistical questions concerned with the estimation of a leak rate from data collected during a reactor containment vessel pressure test such as that performed on the PRTR vessel in May, 1959. A mathematical method is suggested in Section 3 for the construction of a total number of gas molecules in the containment vessel time series using vessel absolute pressure and temperature readings at several positions within the vessel. A formula for the precisi… more

Measuring Reactor Neutron Spectra with Threshold Detectors

Description: The use of threshold detector foils to measure the external neutron spectrum of two reactors is described. The foils employed are Pu236 to measure the total fast flux, U238 for the region above 1.5 Mev, S32 above 2.5 Mev, and Au197 for thermal neutrons. Scintillation counters ae used to determine the activity induce din the detectors. The foil-counting system is calibrated by used a Cockcroft-Walton accelerator as a fast neutron source. The results indicate a fission type spectrum at each react… more
