[Aunt Esther at the Kitchen Table]

Description: Narrative by Junebug Clark: This photo was taken during the late 1930s in Hamtramck, Michigan. Hamtramck is a small town and Polish community surrounded by the city of Detroit. My Aunt Esther (can’t recall her maiden name at this time) is featured at the kitchen table. She would eventually marry Bill Krent and have 4 children: Jackie, David, Marsha and Claudia.

Analytical Standards for Trace Elements in Petroleum Products

Description: Report discussing a search conducted for stable, oil-soluble, organic compounds of metals (and other elements) for use in the spectrographic analysis of petroleum products. Compounds having suitable physical properties have been selected as standards. Methods are given for preparation of the compounds and for the spectrographic and chemical analysis of the chosen standards. Procedures are described for the preparation of stable solutions thereof in petroleum oils.

Abscissas and Weights for Guassian Quadrature For N=2 to 100, and N-125, 150, 175, 200

Description: The abscissas and weights for Gaussian Quadrature of order N = 2 to 100,and N = 125, 150, 175, and 200 are given. The abscissas are given to twenty-four places and the error is estimated to be no more than 1 unit in the last place. The weights are given to twenty-three places and the error is estimated to be no more than 1 unit in the last place.

Oxidation of Polycyclic, Aromatic, Hydrocarbons: A Review of the Literature

Description: Report discussing the literature on the oxidation of polycyclic, aromatic hydrocarbons. Information has been assembled on (1) the oxidants effective in the oxidation of such hydrocarbons, (2) the relative reactivity of the hydrocarbons, (3) the conditions under which oxidation proceeds, (4) the chemical mechanisms involved when such oxidations occur, and (5) the products formed.

Curves of Input Impedance Change Due to Ground for Dipole Antennas

Description: Report presenting graphs of the change in input impedance of electrically short dipole antennas in the presence of an isotropic and homogeneous ground which considers four types of antennas: horizontal and vertical, electric and magnetic dipoles. Curves of the change in both the input resistance and reactance are shown for a wide range of values of the frequency, antenna height above the ground, and electromagnetic ground constants.

Influence of a Sector Ground Screen on the Field of a Vertical Antenna

Description: Report show the field of a short vertical antenna on a homogeneous ground is modified by the presence of a metallic screen. The screen is taken in the form of a circular disk and a concentric sector. The modification of the field is expressed in the form of surface integrals over the disk and the sector. Extensive numerical results for these basic integrals are given and a number of applications are illustrated.

Thermal Expansion of Technical Solids at Low Temperatures: A Compilation From the Literature

Description: Report giving tables of the linear contraction relative to 293 ºK, (L293ºLT)/L293, and the linear expansion coefficient, dL/L293dT, of thirty elements, forty-five alloys, twenty-two other inorganic substances and twenty plastics and elastomers in the temperature range, 0 to 300 ºK.

Refractive Indices and Densities of Aqueous Solutions of Invert Sugar

Description: Report of the refractive indices and densities of aqueous solutions of invert sugar at temperatures of 15, 20, 25, and 30º C, for concentrations up to about 82 percent of invert sugar (by weight). From the results, equations have been derived which relate the refractive index and percent of invert sugar (weight in air) at each temperature. Other equations relate the absolute density and percent of invert sugar (weight in vacuum) at each temperature. Five-decimal tables giving the refractive indices and densities of invert sugar solutions containing 1 to 85 percent of sugar are given for each percentage of invert sugar at the four temperatures.

Radio Meteorology

Description: Report compiling the work done in radio meteorology over the past ten years at the National Bureau of Standards' Central Radio Propagation Laboratory (CRPL). There is an emphasis upon the effects of the lower atmosphere on the propagation of radio waves. The CRPL group has concentrated upon the refraction of radio waves as well as the refractive index structure of the lower atmosphere on both synoptic and climatic scales. Additional chapters on radio-meteorological parameters and the absorption of radio waves by the various constituents of the lower atmosphere.

Shielding Against Gamma Rays, Neutrons, and Electrons From Nuclear Weapons: A Review and Bibliography

Description: Report discussing the problem of predicting dose rates and of estimating the effectiveness of shielding from radiations resulting from nuclear explosions. A number of calculations and supporting experiments regarding the penetration and diffusion of gamma rays, neutrons, and electrons through air and bulk materials are summarized. Indications are given of gaps in such input information. A selection of 485 references from the unclassified literature is presented, of which 388 are cataloged as to source geometry and energy, absorber material and configuration, type of data presented, and method of calculation or experimental technique. These cataloged references include radiation field studies ranging from the point-source infinite-medium situation up through such complicated geometries as foxholes, shelters, and conventional structures. The other references are of a general or review nature or contain input spectral data.

Tensile and Impact Properties of Selected Materials From 20 to 300 ºK

Description: Report giving the tensile and impact properties of structural materials that were experimentally determined at temperatures from 20 to 300 ºK. Tensile properties of a few materials were also determined at 4 ºK. The properties experimentally determined were the yield strength, tensile strength, elongation, and reduction of area, the stress versus strain curve, and the impact energy. The test equipment and procedures are described. The individual data are presented in tables, and the average results are displayed in graphs.
