The Crystal Cavities of the New Jersey Zeolite Region

Description: From abstract: The crystal cavities present in the mineral complex of the New Jersey traprock region have long excited the interest of mineralogists. In 1914 Fenner made the first detailed and comprehensive study of these cavities and suggested that babingtonite was the original mineral. Soon after this anhydrite was found occupying parts of some of the cavities at one of the quarries. At this time, too, Wherry concluded that glauberite was the original mineral of some of the cavities because of his studies of similar crystal cavities in Triassic shale at different places.

Uranium in Peru

Description: Introduction: From the inception of the effort to utilize atomic energy Perú has been of interest as a possible source of radioactive raw materials because of its great variety and abundance of metals. Because of this and a desire at that time to develop additional supplies of uranium, a cooperative program to search for uranium deposits was initiated in 1953 by the Junta and the USAEC.

Welding Thin-Walled Uranium Cylinders

Description: One of Its Monograph Series, The Industrial Atom.'' The development of a satisfactory process for the fusion welding of thin-walled uranium cylinders is discussed. Optimum results were obtained using the inert-gas shielded-arc method without the use of filler metal. The ductility of the welded joints, however, was lower than that of cast metal. Surface conditions and and the purity of the inert gas used affected the weld soundness. Straight polarity direct current was used for welding to achieve maximum penetration and to provide are stability. Welding must be done in the flat position. (auth)

FUNDAMENTALS OF SINTERING--II. Second Annual Progress Report, June 30, 1956 to June 30, 1957

Description: Rates of spheroidization and densification of gold and of nickel wire compacts were measured as a function of time, temperature, and wire size. The necks joining the sintered particles were found to grow proportionally to the one- fifth root of time. The value of the coefficient of self-difiusion calculated from the sintering rate is of the sane order of magnitude as that obtained by ordinary tracer techniques but with a somewhat higher activation energy. These results are entirely consistent with those predicted by the Kuczyrski diffusional theory of sintering, as is the effect of wire size on sintering rate. The experiments did not reveal a clear effect of grain boundaries on sintering rates. This may be due to a relatively slow densification of the nickel wire compacts at even 0.98 of the absolute melting point, which obscured the effect of grain growth on sintering rate. (auth)

MTR FUEL ELEMENTS CONTAINING PLATES WITH Pu-Al ALLOY

Description: The first group of Pu--Al MTR fuel elements fubricated were rejected for excessive dimensions and blistering. The fuel element constitution and fubrication was reviewed, and a new Pu--Al ratio and revised rolling techniques were suggested. (D.E.B.)

Limnological and Geochemical Survey of Williams Lake Hubbard County, Minnesota

Description: Purpose and scope: The purpose of this report is to describe and make preliminary interpretations of: (1) Limnological characteristics of Williams Lake, based on physical, chemical, and biological data collected in 6 days in 6 different months in 1979; (2) chemical quality of ground water near the lake, based on samples collected during the summer of 1979; and (3) mineralogy of the lake sediment cores obtained in February 1978. The period of study extended from March, when the lake was covered by ice, through the period of open water, to December, when it was again covered by ice.

Atomization Method of Making Uranium Powder

Description: Atomized U powder was produced by forming an electric arc between two U electrodes in an inert atmosphere and sending a high velocity stream of inert gas through the arc. Uranium particles obtained by this method were of spherical shape; smaller particles contained mostly small grains, and larger particles wore characterizcd by larger grains. The particles were ductile and could be hotpressed to a compact of high density. The temporary equipment used for those preliminary tests on atomization was not adequate to control particle size. Suggestions for the production of atomized U powder of controllable quality are included. (arth)

Molar Volumes and Densities of Minerals

Description: The following report presents tables critically chosen for the "best values" for the density and molar volume of selected mineral compounds. The intent to the selection was not to be inclusive, but to present data for chemically and physically well-defined phases for which the molar volume and/or density was known to the order of 0.2 percent.

Some Natural Variations in the Relative Abundance of Copper Isotopes

Description: Abstract: "The relative isotopic abundance of copper has been measured in a number of minerals. Suites of samples from Michigan and the Colorado Plateau have been examined to determine if local variations due to isotopic exchange or diffusion could be found. The relative isotopic abundance of copper in specimens from a number of other places was also determined. The variations noted were small but in most cases were felt to be significant because they were larger than the experimental error (0.1 percent in the ratio). A total spread of +3 to -8 parts per mil compared to the standard was found in the specimens tested."
