NUCLEAR REACTORS AND EARTHQUAKES

Description: A book is presented which supplies pertinent seismological information to engineers in the nuclear reactor field. Data are presented on the occurrence, intensity, and wave shapes. Techniques are described for evaluating the response of structures to such events. Certain reactor types and their modes of operation are described briefly. Various protection systems are considered. Earthquake experience in industrial and reactor plants is described. (D.L.C.)

A SUMMARY OF INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENTS IN USAEC FACILITIES

Description: The accident experience of the AEC contractor operation for 1959 and 1960 is reported. Incidents involving radio active materials are described. A table of inadvertent criticality was included to supplement other tables. A tabulation of exposure records at values from 0 to 15 r is given. (M.C.G.)

Laboratory and Pilot Plant Evaluation of Stanrock Uranium Concentrate

Description: The laboratory and pilot plant evaluation of Stanrock concentrate is presented. This concentrate meets all FMPC impurity tolerance limits except that for thorium content. The thorium limit can be met by the addition of phosphate as required for thorium-containing uranium concentrates. Laboratory digestion and extraction tests indicate that this material should present no problems in pulse column processing. A pilot plant pulse column test (a test utilizing a modified two-inch-pulse-column system) indicated that this material should present no operational problems in the National Lead Company of Ohio Refinery.

WATER REQUIREMENTS FOR A RADIOCHEMICAL PROCESSING PLANT

Description: A survey of the water requirements is presented for a hypothetical plant to process all the fuel from a 15,000Mwe nuclear economy. For each processing plant, specific requirements must be based on a detailed water survey which includes water quality, process requirements, and in-plant conservation plans. These considerations are discussed and the quantitative requirements are listed. (J.R.D.)
