Coal Reserves of the Boltsfork Quadrangle, Kentucky: A Coal Recoverability Study

Description: Abstract: "This report presents a U.S. Bureau of Mines study that incorporates coal mining factors, cola recovery factors, and economic factors into the definition of an economically recoverable coal resource. The relationship between these factors to the Energy Information Administration's estimate of U.S. coal resources--the "Demonstrated Reserve Base"--is discussed. The Boltsfork 7 1/2-minute quadrangle in eastern Kentucky was selected as the stud area. Results indicate that of the origi… more

Analytic Approach for the Pion-Proton Scattering Phase Shifts

Description: A simple method of solving for the phase shifts of the pion-proton scattering is presented. The rapid solution afforded can be utilized, as the Ashkin diagrams have been employed, to give starting values to an electronic computer or alternatively to analyze with more ease the variation of the phase shifts as a function of the input data in terms of the coefficients of the angular distributions. A new plot of a function of the total cross section versus the pion energy is introduced. The nearly … more

Research on Uranium-Base Alloys. Part I, Transformation Kinetics of Uranium-Base Alloys, Final Report, November 15, 1952 - August 31, 1955

Description: Information concerning the transformation kinetics of the gamma solid solution of uranium-base alloys is important. Accordingly, the metastability of the gamma phase was investigated for nine uranium-rich alloys of the U-Mo-Pt, U-Mo-Nb, and U-Nb systems. Samples were encapsulated in Vycor bulbs, solutions treated at 1000 decrees or 1050 degrees C, quenched to and annealed at temperatures between 600 degrees and 300 degrees C. Techniques employed to follow transformation included metallography, … more

Pressurized Loop membrane Demineralizer Tests : Final Report [for] January-June 1953

Description: A membrane demineralizer has been tested in a pressurized loop. The loop water resistivity was maintained in the 1-2 megohm range by ionized solid transfer in the demineralizer. The size and power requirement of the unit tested per gpm flow through the unit, were 2.3 cu ft and 100 watts. In view of the fact that present designed could reduce the size and required maintenance, further studies may be warranted.

A Simple Sweeping-Image Camera (Chronograph) with 10-8 Second Resolution

Description: A sweeping-image camera design of flexible application and easy construction is described. It is equally useful for bread-board, optical bench, or completely engineered construction. The heart of this camera is the optical train which consists of a collimator lens that renders the light from the image points into parallel beams, a rotating mirror to sweep these beams in an arc, and a box camera set at infinity focus to receive the reflected beams. The sweeping light beams form images which move… more

Flotation Characteristics of Florida Phosphate Leached-Zone Material, Progress Report No . 7

Description: Although the results reported herein are rather encouraging and show the possibilities of utilizing flotation to increase recoveries and in some instances grades, they should not not be considered an optimum. As stated previously, time did not permit a detailed investigation of all reagents an conditions to obtain maximum grades and recoveries, but sufficient data, with enough typical samples, have been obtained to indicate a definite trend and encouragement for further studies. A comparison of… more

Numerical Calculation of Blast Waves in Non-Uniform Atmosphere

Description: The problem of a blast wave propagating through an inhomogeneous atmosphere is set up for computation by the CRC LORA. Previous treatments of this problem have used various simplifying assumptions such as that of purely radial flow. Since, however, pressure gradients in this situation will not in general be in the direction of rays from the blast center, non-radial flow will exist, and there is reason to believe that for large distances this effect will play a prominent role. Therefore, a progr… more
