Two-Dimensional Diffusion Theory Analysis of Reactivity Effects of a Fuel-Plate-Removal Experiment

Description: Note presenting two-dimensional two-group diffusion calculations performed on the NACA reactor simulator in order to evaluate the reactivity effects of fuel plates removed successively from the center experimental fuel element of a seven- by three-element core loading. The reactivity calculations were performed with two methods: the slowing-down properties of the experimental fuel element were represented by infinite media parameters and the finite size of the experimental fuel element was recognized, and the slowing-down properties of the surrounding core were attributed to the small region.

Uniformly Reactive Uranium Dioxide from a Single Oxidation-Reduction Cycle

Description: Abstract: By use of a modified thermobalance and reactor as the primary experimental tool for sample preparation and evaluation, a process has been developed by which parent uranium feed materials of a widely variable reactivity and composition may be converted to a uniformly reactive uranium dioxide.

The Reactivity of Uranium and Blacosolv

Description: Abstract: "Blacosolv, trichloroethylene, is used in degreasing uranium metal. Tests were made under possible industrial conditions to determine whether a hazardous reaction between uranium and Blacosolv could occur. Temperature-rise measurements showed that there was no reaction of the metal, in various states of subdivision, with Blacosolv at temperatures up to 850 F. However, a reaction was observed in tests under which the finely divided metal, wet with solvent, was subjected to a severe impact."

Reactor Kinetics: A Bibliography

Description: ABS>A bibliography covering the material listed in Nuclear Science Abstracts and Abstracts of Classified Reports up to July 1958 is presented. It is divided into 39 sections with author and report number indexes and a glossary of abbreviations. Each subject group has the entries by author onder, or by title (if no author listed). Each entry has a number so as to assist the location of reports from either the author or number indexes. While this biblicgraphy includes classified reports (indicated by AEC Classified), there are no classified titles. Publication dates of reports are given, when available, except where a date shows in the title, such as in progress reports. The report number index may be of special value to those researchers who desire all of one company's reports on this subject. (auth)

The Effect of Relationship Quality on Mental Representations of Social Support and Cardiovascular Reactivity

Description: The aim of the current study was to examine how thinking about qualitatively different social network members may differentially affect cardiovascular reactivity to a subsequent stressor. Eighty-two undergraduates were asked to think and write about different types of relationships preceding a social stressor. No differences between conditions in CVR were found during social support induction phase or the stressor task. Women in the supportive condition were found to have slower SV recovery than those in the ambivalent condition. The results of this study are inconsistent with previous evidence for a relationship between mental representations of social ties and CVR. Future research should seek to rule out confounding variables and clarify this effect.

Reactivity Studies During Drying and Relocation of Lead-Zinc-Gold Tailings: Phase 1 - Preliminary Evaluation and Laboratory Testing

Description: The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation requested U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM) assistance in developing design data for moving lead-zinc-gold tailings from their current location without disrupting the existing chemically stable conditions. This report presents results of USBM work in determining (1) the minimum required time to air dry the tailings to approximately 20 pct moisture under various drying conditions both in the laboratory and in the field, (2) the degree of oxidation or reduction that occurs during drying, (3) the effect of lime or cement addition before drying, and (4) the likely equilibrium conditions of the dried tailings after deposition at the new location. The limited number of tests performed by the USBM in the available time frame established trends in oxidation levels but did not provide absolute statistical validity of data values. All data from drying and oxidation testing are included in appendices to this report.

Investigation of Reactivity Anomalies in EBR-II

Description: A data-collection and advisory team was formed to investigate observations of power reactivity decrement (PRD) and reactivity loss rate (RLR) obtained during EBR-II reactor run 74, because both the PRD and RLR were judged to be high during that run. This report describes the efforts to develop a realistic model explaining the reactivity observations for run 74 and presents recommendations for additional diagnostic information in the event of a recurrence of off-normal behavior of reactivity.

Notes on Evaporation of Target Materials

Description: Abstract: "The general utility of vacuum evaporated films is discussed. The characteristics that makes this technique most useful are the uniformity of the films, the easy control of their thickness over a large range, and the adaptability of the system to different metals and compounds. The design of a vacuum evaporator should provide adequate pumping speed, cooling of components, filament heater supply, and general flexibility and adaptability of the components to different materials. The design of filaments or boats and the evaporation of Al, Ag, Au, Li, Na, UCl4, ThF4, Be, SiO, Nal (Tl), U, and UO2 are considered. Special attention is given to the problem of obtaining uniform layers of UO2 on a large, flat target relatively close to the source."

A Transistorized Reactivity Measurement System

Description: An all-transistor system has been developed to be used in measuring the reactivity of the reactor in the Sandia Engineering Reactor Facility. In operation, the system triggers a pulsed neutron source (PNS) in the reactor and counts the resulting neutron flux, thus giving a measure of the time constant of the reactor. The counting is done in eleven time-sequenced counting channels. The reactor time constant is a measure of the reactor reactivity.

INVESTIGATION ON DURABILITY AND REACTIVITY OF PROMISING METAL OXIDE SORBENTS DURING SULFIDATION AND REGENERATION

Description: The main objectives of this research project during this quarter are to investigate effects of hydrogen, moisture, concentrations of H<sub>2</sub> S, and residence time of reaction gas mixtures on equilibrium absorption as well as dynamic absorption of H<sub>2</sub> S into the TU-188 sorbent at 530 o C, and to evaluate effective diffusivity of H<sub>2</sub> S through the sorbent particles, using the newly-fabricated differential reactor.

Reactivity and Power Shape Control : Theory and Numerical Applications

Description: An optimization method, based on linear programming, has been developed which determines the enrichment distribution in a multizone reactor such that the desired power distribution is achieved at BOL, as well as the poison distribution during reactor operation such that the reactor is kept critical and the desired power distribution is retained. For the numerical implementation of the method, the CYPRUS code has been written. Results of the application of the method are presented and input specifications for the use of the code are described.
