Dynamics of Wheeled Vehicles, Report 1: A Mathematical Model for the Traversal of Rigid Obstacles by a Pneumatic Tire, Appendix B: Digital Implementation of Segmented Tire Model

Description: Summary: "This appendix presents the procedures for digital implementation of the segmented tire model, developed in the basic report for an analog computer. Two procedures are required: (a) determination of the segment spring coefficient from measured load-deflection test results, and (b) computation of the resultant force vector transmitted to the axle. Digital programs for both procedures were written in Fortran IV for a GE-420 system, and are included" (p. xi).

Expedient Reinforcement of Concrete for Use in Southeast Asia: Report 1: Preliminary Tests of Bamboo

Description: "This report summarizes the preliminary results of a current U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) study of the feasibility of using bamboo as an expedient reinforcement for temporary, reinforced concrete structures. The report contains an extensive review of the literature, a description of the test procedures, results of an investigation of the most important engineering properties of bamboo, descriptions of tests of 26 bamboo-reinforced structural elements (20 simply supported beams with 6-ft (1.83-m) spans, and 6 simply supported two-way slabs of varying length, width, and depth), and conclusions and tentative recommendations for the design of bamboo-reinforced structures" (p. xiii).

Model Study of Galveston Harbor Entrance, Texas: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Report discussing the results of a series of tests in Galveston Bay to: "(a) develop plans for relocation and stabilization of the jetty channel on an alignment and at a depth suitable fro the safe passage of supertankers; (b) determine means for protecting the north jetty from the undermining action of tidal currents; (c) determine the shoaling characteristics of the relocated and deepened jetty (inner bar) channel and develop plans for minimizing shoaling in the relocated channel; and (d) determine the best locations for additional anchorage areas adjacent to the jetty channel or in Bolivar Roads" (p. ix).

Response of Deep Two-Way-Reinforced and Unreinforced Concrete Slabs to Static and Dynamic Loading, Report 3: Static Tests of Deep Slabs Having a Span-to-Thickness Ratio of 4.12

Description: Partial abstract: "The objective of the investigation reported herein was to obtain laboratory response data for deep, two-way-reinforced and plain concrete slabs subjected to static overpressures in order to determine the response analysis necessary to analyze the target vulnerability of such structures under both active and passive defense situations" (p. 4).

STATUS OF DATA RETRIEVAL SYSTEM AS OF APRIL 1, 1969

Description: Battelle-Northwest is developing a general-purpose data retrieval system. The system is planned to provide almost unrestricted flexibility in application and use, with no limitations on the quantity of data, except those imposed by hardware. This data retrieval system is being programmed in Fortran-V, for batch processing on a Univac-1108. The control, search-and-retrieval, query-input, output, and startup programs have been written in preliminary form, and are in the initial debugging and test stages. Current versions of these programs are presented.

PERMANENT MAGNET AND PITOT-STATIC PROBE FLOMETERS FOR LIQUID SODIUM

Description: A permanent magnet probe flowmeter and a Pitot-static bubbler flowmeter are considered for coolant flow measurement in the Fast Test Reactor. The permanent magnet probe offers a sensitivity on the order of tenths of a millivolt per foot/second flow velocity, appropriate linearity of response, simplicity of operation, and no contact between liquid metal and electrical insulation. Its applicability is contingent on magnetic material having sufficient magnetization retention in high temperature and high neutron flux environments. The Pitot-static bubbler offers low sensitivity to nuclear radiation, use of off-the-shelf materials, and high, though non-linear, sensitivity. Positive displacement flow in the bubbler may eliminate plugging of the probe tubing by sodium oxide.

POSTIRRADIATION EXAMINATION OF CENTRIFUGALLY BONDED EBR-11 DRIVER FUEL

Description: BNW was requested by AEC/DRDT to assist ANL with the postirradiation examination of EBR-II driver fuel (U + 5Fs) pins that became shortened during irradiation. To date, three irradiated pins and one nonirradiated pin were examined.

Reactor Flow and Pressure Drop Study

Description: A study was made to determine the flow rates and pressure drops for all primary system flow paths through the FTR. The main data and results are in tables, diagrams and curves. The results are intended to provide a common basis for evaluation of parametric changes in the system.
