Special hazards report - I E fuel loads

Description: This report has been prepared in answer to the request from the AEC contained in the letter of October 1, 1957, from A. T. Gifford, HOO to A. B. Greninger. As requested, the report is of a summary nature and a more complete discussion of many of the points considered will be found in the references listed. The report is directed primarily at C reactor but some discussion of the other reactors is also included. A description of the proposed utilization of I E slugs in C reactor together with the associated power increase schedule is presented below. The reasons for changing to the I E element are presented together with a comparison of solid and I E slugs in the C reactor. The changes being made in C reactor under CG 600 are described. The operational characteristics of the C reactor using solid and I E elements are compared and finally the nuclear safety status of all of the Hanford reactors assuming I E loadings is reviewed.
