Shielding Studies on Salt Slabs, Gadolinium, and Water

Description: Review of a study regarding a lid-tank shielding facility's properties, including fast-neutron and gamma dose rates and thermal-neutron fluxes, which were mapped in a symmetry plane. The removal cross section of gadolinium was determined through comparison with various other materials.

Aqueous Corrosion of Uranium Fuel-Element Cores Containing 0 to 20 w/o Zirconium

Description: Abstract: A description is given of the design and operation of a windowed autoclave system employed in the study of corrosion by pressurized hot water. The device has been used to obtain time-lapse motion pictures of the swelling and rupture of deliberately defected zirconium-clad uranium specimens. A method is described by which corrosion rates were calculated from pressure and temperature measurements. A typical set of pictures taken during a test is presented, and corrosion rates are reported for uranium-0, 5, 10, 15, and 20 w/o zirconium alloys subjected subjected to 600 F water.
