Materials Testing Reactor Project : Addendum to Reactor Building Wing Report, Design Report No. 27A

Description: "Changes, corrections and additions to the original report are included in this addendum. These are brought about by further development of the design by Blaw-Knox, AHL and ORNL. The changes in the original wiritings are listed below in accordance with the main headings, pages and paragraphs to which they apply. Following this is a list of the contemplated personnel in the MTR program. This listing sets out the number of offices and the office furniture requirements. Also numbers for lockers, showers, toilets and rest rooms are set forth. Although the listing includes all major buildings planned for the site, it is included here since the reactor building wing is more markedly influenced by office requirements."

Flux Distributions and Critical k [infinity] Values for Cylindrical Reactors Simulation the MTR

Description: From summary: "In order to estimate the effect of placing bismuth and thorium layers near the MTR core, radial flux distributions and k[infinity] values were calculated for cylindrical reactors having cylindrical layers of these materials of the same height as the core and beryllium reflector and placed either next to the core or embedded in the beryllium reflector."

Materials Testing Reactor-Engineering Test Reactor Technical Branches Quarterly Report: October 1 - December 31, 1963

Description: From summary: "Reactor fuel material consisting of U3Si particles embedded in an aluminum matrix have been examined with an electron microprobe to determine reaction between fuel particles and matrix. Partial reaction was observed with no observable tendency for the uranium or silicon to diffuse outward into the matrix.

Standard Practices Guide for Writing Experimental Operating Manuals

Description: This is a sample operating manual designed to aid experimenters in writing operating manuals for MTR and ETR experiments. It contains what is felt to be the necessary information for operating a particular experiment. One of the main functions of an operating manual is to provide quick reference to material needed in an emergency. It is believed this type of manual provides the required information without an excessive amount of bulky, surplus material.

Production of Xe¹³¹, Xe¹³⁵, Kr⁸⁵m and Kr⁸⁵ From Plated-Out U²³⁵ in the MTR Core

Description: This report discusses details of the release of Xe¹³¹, Xe¹³⁵, Kr⁸⁵m and Kr⁸⁵ into the process water system of the MTR along with the development of high process water radioactivity. It is suggested that this release followed the fissioning of U²³⁵. Equations that produce the rate of release of fission products is given and approximate rate of release is represented in a graph.
