A computerized method of reporting operating quality costs

Description: The purpose of this report is to explain the computerized method of reporting operating quality costs at the Neutron Devices Department (NDD), St. Petersburg, Florida. Quality Control Management recognized the need to report operating quality costs more meaningfully. With the aid and cooperation of the Finance Section, a GE 415 computerized (COBOL) procedure was developed and implemented at NDD to measure quality cost expenditures more effectively. The detailed procedure and explanation of pertinent quality cost activities can be found in the Appendices.

Effects of gamma-ray irradiation on M1 propellant

Description: Samples of M1 single-base propellant were exposed to 10{sup 5}, 10{sup 6}, and 10{sup 7}r of Co{sup 60} gamma rays. Burning rates were determined over a pressure range of 600 to 2600 psi at -40{degrees}, 21{degrees}, and 71{degrees}C. A statistical study indicated no significant change in the burning rate and a small but statistically significant increase (6%) in the exponential factor n after the 10{sup 7}r dose. Visible deterioration resulted, as the color changed from yellow to dark brown and the surface became uneven. In view of these marked visible effects, the slight change in burning rate is surprising. One sample exposed to 5 {times} 10{sup 8}r showed severe blistering, swelling, and contraction, and embrittlement causing fracture. Nitrogen Taliani tests conducted at 110{degrees}C indicated that the decomposition rate is decreased by exposure to 10{sup 5}r, is decreased less by 10{sup 6}r, and remains unchanged after 10{sup 7}r exposure. Chemical analysis showed that the percentage of 2-nitrodiphenylamine increases with dose by a factor of 7 at 10{sup 7}r, while, at the same time, the nitrogen content of the nitrocellulose decreases with increasing dose. This indicates that a substantial part of the nitrocellulose decomposition product had reacted with the diphenylamine stabilizer. It is remarkable that propellant strands obviously modified by exposure to 10{sup 7}r showed little or no change in burning rate.

Report on 8-inch isostatic press explosion at Site 300

Description: On 3 March 1960 at 11:30 a.m. a detonation occurred in the 8-inch isostatic press. The press and building were completely destroyed. Operating personnel were protected and no injuries resulted. Adjacent facilities were not affected. The press was housed in a temporary facility located in the southwest portion of Section 26, Site 300. The facility was situated approximately 1000 feet west of the main site road, and 1400 feet north of the county road. The press building was of frangible wood construction and was surrounded by an earth barricade. A remote control building, provided with overhead protection, a mechanical equipment room, and a transportainer magazine were located outside the barricaded press building.

Tory II-C off-design performance

Description: This memorandum reports the performance of TORY II-C at off-design altitudes and Mach numbers. Inlet pressure recovery has been varied with Mach number, reasonable values for a real inlet having been chosen. Nozzle throat area and exit area have been fixed at the design values. Hence this study can be used, in conjunction with missile drag data, to construct a flight envelope.

A Generalized Computer Program for Flowsheet Calculation and Process Data Reduction

Description: Report issued by the Argonne National Laboratory discussing the PACER-65 computer program. As stated in the summary, the program "has been developed and utilized for flow sheet calculations and process-data reduction. PACER-65 is an executive program in which material- and energy-balance equations, conversion factors, etc., for each processing step are described by separate subroutines" (p. 5). This report includes tables, and illustrations.

EEN-307, Irradiation of units at low temperature test

Description: EWR-ESE-144, Fifty MC-890 type final assemblies were subjected to irradiation at low temperature test in order to determine if irradiation would reduce the frequency of high voltage breakdowns. A control lot of a like number of units was subjected to low temperature test in the same manner except without irradiation.

Time-to-explosion thermal initiation test for explosives

Description: A controlled series of experiments have been performed in an attempt to evaluate the Henkin time-to-explosion test as a reactivity test and a quality assurance tool. This was done by comparing the Henkin results with those obtained with the presently used gas chromatograph chemical reactivity test, Two explosives, PBX 9404 and LX-04-1, were tested with four ``inerts``: sodium chloride, lead powder, Silastic Q-300030 and epoxy 633111. The experimental data from the two tests are given; a method for mathematically reducing the Henkin data is considered. The data from the two tests are not in complete agreement. Both predict that the epoxy is reactive with and that NaCl is unreactive with both explosives. However, the Henkin data indicated reactivity of lead powder and Silastic with LX-04-1; the gas chromatograph did not. For PBX 9404, the Henkin test indicated that the lead was borderline reactive and the Silastic unreactive, while the gas chromatograph predicted the opposite. DTA thermograms are included to help interpret the comparison test results. A section in the appendix is devoted to the experimental problems encountered in getting the Henkin test operational. All raw data generated during that time are included in the appendix. In addition, data obtained subsequently with a fairly wide variety of explosives (and propellants) are given; these indicate the present quality of data.

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.
