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.

Trafficability of Soils: Effects of Surface Conditions on Drawbar Pull of a Wheeled Vehicle

Description: "A study was conducted to (a) investigate the effects of soil surface conditions on one-pass drawbar pull capabilities of a wheeled vehicle, (b) relate optimum drawbar pull to soil strength as measured by several instruments, (c) develop tentative equations for predicting optimum tractive coefficient, and (d) determine effects of tire characteristics (tread pattern and deflection) on drawbar pull. One hundred and six drawbar pullslip tests were conducted with a 3/4-ton M37 truck at a gross weight of 7240 lb. One tire size (9.00-16, 8-PR), two tread patterns (smooth and nondirectional military), and two tire deflections (15% and 35%) were tested. Surface conditions varied from dry and firm, to wetted with small amounts of water, to flooded. Asphalt surfaces also were tested" (p. xi).

Methods of Opacity Calculations

Description: "Methods for calculating the opacity of materials at high temperatures are discussed in this report. Minor improvements are outlined for the treatment of continuous absorption processes, and a small error usually made in treating the scattering process is corrected. In contrast to all previous calculations of opacity, the effect of line absorption is carefully examined, for it may well be the dominant process under certain conditions of temperature and density. Detailed methods for calculating the line absorption contribution are, therefore, developed. To illustrate the principles involved, the opacity of pure iron at a temperature of 1000 volts and normal density is worked out in detail" (p. ii).

Decomposition of Water at High Temperatures and Pressures Under Reactor Irradiation

Description: Partial abstract: "The investigation of the high temperature and pressure dissociation of water under irradiation was undertaken by the Power Pile Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory in an effort to determine the degree of importance of the phenomenon with respect to the design of a high temperature water-cooled power reactor. Theory and past experimentation indicate that net steady-state dissociation is determined by the rates of the dissociation and recombination reactions under the imposed conditions, the dissociation rate being essentially a function of flux and the recombination rate essentially a function of temperature" (p. 3).

Balanced Ionization Chamber for Differential Measurements of Gamma Rays

Description: "The purpose of the work was to develop a method of measuring very small differences in the half lives of gamma ray emitting radioactive substances. The apparatus was then used to try to detect a difference in the half lives of Be7 metal and BeO. The results of the measurements on the two different chemical forms of beryllium will be given" (p. 1).

Description: Abstract: "The advantages of high scaling ratios in counting random pulses are discussed. The mechanism of the basic circuit used in the Columbia University scaling circuits is described. The difficulties experienced in the performance of the earlier circuits are indicated and modified circuits to eliminate these difficulties are given. Precautions that must be observed in carrying out the constructional details are suggested. The complete circuit and specifications are given in detail for a Scale of 128 for use with linear-amplifier systems" (p. 1).
