Further Studies of Amines as Extractants for Uranium from Acid Sulfate Solutions

Description: Abstract: "Since the first report on the use of amines as uranium extractants (ORNL-1734) over eighty additional organo-nitrogen compounds have been examined for their ability to extract uranium from aqueous solutions, particularly sulfate solutions, of the types usually encountered in uranium ore processing. As before, the more promising of these (as well as other compounds previously reported) have been examined further with respect to other characteristics essential to practical application, i.e., reagent loss to the aqueous phase, compatibility with practicable diluents, influence of commonly present anions, reagent stability, sufficient selectivity for uranium, adequate phase separation properties, compatibility with practicable stripping methods, etc. The potential cost and availability of the reagents tested, i.e., certain secondary and tertiary amines, have shown even greater promise as practicable extraction agents than many of the promising compounds previously tested. In addition to the work with sulfate liquors, cursory studies have been made of uranium extraction from fluoride and sulfate-fluoride solutions. Extractions of other metals from sulfate liquors, i.e., titanium and thorium, have been briefly examined."

The Determination of Small Amounts of Thorium in Some Uranium Materials

Description: Abstract: "A method for the determination of small quantities of thorium in the presence of large quantities of uranium is presented. Solid samples are dissolved in an appropriate acid. Reducible metals are removed by means of a mercury cathode. Excess acid is removed by fuming to dryness. The residue is dissolved in water and made alkaline with saturated ammonium carbonate solution, thus complexing the uranium and permitting the precipitation of thorium hydroxide with the aid of an aluminum hydroxide carrier. Thorium is determined colorimetrically with thoron."

The Detection of Small Amounts of Fluorine in Large Amounts of Chlorine

Description: Abstract: "Tests have been developed for both the qualitative detection and quantitative determination of fluorine in chlorine. The qualitative test is made by passing the gas through manganous chloride. If the pink solid tubes brown there is greater than 0.5 percent of fluorine in the gas. The quantitative test is a modification of the Steiger and Marvin Test with oxidized titanium solution."

The Effect of Oxygen in Coal

Description: From Introduction: "This paper is the result of a comparative study of ultimate coal analyses made and published by the United States Geological Survey. The initial comparisons, made from a relatively small number of analyses, not only confirmed a previous conviction that the elimination of oxygen incident to the development of a coal is economically far more important than has been generally suspected, but also showed that oxygen is very nearly as harmful as ash in coal."

The Problem of Torsion in Prismatic Members of Circular Segmental Cross Section

Description: The problem is solved by approximation, by setting up a function complying with the differential equation of the stress function, and determining the coefficients appearing in it in such a way that the boundary condition is fulfilled as nearly as possible. For the semicircle, for which the solution is known, the method yields very accurate values; the approximated stress distribution is in good agreement with the accurately computed distribution. Stress and strain measurements indicate that the approximate solution is in sufficiently exact agreement with reality for segmental cross sections.

On the Application of the Energy Method to Stability Problems

Description: Since stability problems have come into the field of vision of engineers, energy methods have proved to be one of the most powerful aids in mastering them. For finding the especially interesting critical loads special procedures have evolved that depart somewhat from those customary in the usual elasticity theory. A clarification of the connections seemed desirable,especially with regard to the post-critical region, for the treatment of which these special methods are not suited as they are. The present investigation discusses this question-complex (made important by shell construction in aircraft) especially in the classical example of the Euler strut, because in this case - since the basic features are not hidden by difficulties of a mathematical nature - the problem is especially clear. The present treatment differs from that appearing in the Z.f.a.M.M. (1938) under the title "Uber die Behandlung von Stabilittatsproblemen mit Hilfe der energetischen Methode" in that, in order to work out the basic ideas still more clearly,it dispenses with the investigation of behavior at large deflections and of the elastic foundation;in its place the present version gives an elaboration of the 6th section and (in its 7 th and 8th secs.)a new example that shows the applicability of the general criterion to a stability problem that differs from that of Euler in many respects.

On the Use of the Harmonic Linearizaiton Method in the Automatic Control Theory

Description: The method of harmonic linearization (harmonic balance), first proposed by N. M. Krylov and N. N. Bogolyubov for the approximate investigation of nonlinear vibrations, has been developed and received wide practical application to problems in the theory of automatic control. Recently, some doubt has been expressed on the legitimacy of application of the method to these problems, and assertions were made on the absence in them of a small parameter of any kind. Nevertheless, the method gives practical, acceptable results and is a simple and powerful means in engineering computations. Hence, the importance of questions arises as to its justification. The underlying principle of the method is the replacement of the given nonlinear equation by a linear equation. In establishing the method, a small parameter is considered whose presence makes it possible to speak, with some degree of approximation, of the solution of this new equation to the solution of the given nonlinear equation. In an article by the author, certain considerations were given on the presence of the small parameter, but this question has not as yet received a final answer. In the present report, a somewhat different approach to the problem is applied that permits: (a) establishing, in the clearest manner, the form of the presence of the small parameter in nonlinear problems of control theory, solvable by the method of harmonic linearization; (b) connecting it with previous intuitive physical concepts (with the "filter property") and extending the class of problems possessing this property; and (c) discussing various generalizations of the method.

Compression Shocks in Two-Dimensional Gas Flows

Description: The following are arguments on the compression shocks in gas flow start with a simplified representation of the results of the study made by Th. Meyer as published in the Forschungsheft 62 of the VDI, supplemented by several amplifications for the application.In the treatment of compression shocks, the equation of energy, the equation of continuity, the momentum equation, the equation of state of the particular gas, as well as the condition Of the second law of thermodynamics that no decrease of entropy is possible in an isolated system, must be taken into consideration. The result is that, in those cases where the sudden change of state according to the second law of thermodynamics is possible, there always occurs a compression of the gas which is uniquely determined by the other conditions.
