Thermal Analysis of Type 3 Elements in the SM-1, SM-1A and PM-2A Cores

Description: Report describing a study which analyzed thermal characteristics of Type 3 elements planned for installation in the SM-1, SM-1A and PM-2A plants, for both steady state and loss of flow transient conditions. Results of this analysis for steady state conditions indicate that the SM-1, SM-1A and PM-2A Type 3 cores will operate safely at design and scram conditions.

Investigation of Performance of Concrete and Concreting Materials Exposed to Natural Weathering, Volume 1: Active Investigations

Description: Partial summary: "To assess the durability of concrete and other materials used in concrete construction when exposed to natural weathering, the Corps of Engineers maintains severe-, mild-, moderate-, and non-weathering exposure stations at various locations in the United States. Specimens from actual structures and experimental specimens in which the amounts or kinds of components are varied are exposed until they fail or until testing is completed, whichever occurs first. The specimens are inspected periodically, and tested to determine their dynamic modulus of elasticity and pulse velocity. [...] Volume 1 contains the active evaluations" (p. ix).

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).
