Development and Use of Certain Flotation Reagents

Description: From Forward: "When the experiments described in this bulletin were begun many of the reagents were available only in trial quantities. Some of them are now available in commercial quantities and are of different compositions from those that were available for experimental work. It was not possible to determine the exact chemical composition of some of the reagents."

Project 9536 HEW Building 105: Conference on welding design and technique

Description: On February 4 at a conference in T.C. Gary`s office attended by Messrs. Wood, Gary, H.T. Daniels, Burns and C.R. Johnson, the design of the strap plates on the front and rear shields of the pile was discussed from the standpoint of welding technique in the field. Discussion of the design centered about the plug welding of the plates to the Laminated blocks and the ability of the field to perform this work properly. It was decided that welding specialists should be consulted prior to the beginning of the actual field erection in order that the best technique could be employed to guarantee good workmanship. It was agreed that a conference with such specialists should embrace both the features of the design as well as the practical phases of welding itself. This report provides details of this conference.

[Observation on machining speeds and feeds]

Description: This memorandum describes a trip on February 17th, 1944, in which the author stopped at the Baker Brothers Machine Company in Toledo to get the latest information on machining speeds and feeds and to determine the validity of their reported three pieces per hour per machine. The Baker Brothers reported that the three pieces per hour figure is an average given for determining delivery dates and allows for machining shapes other than a straight cylinder. They recommended a speed of 360 RPM for turning with a .010 feed.

Detail Calculations of the Estimated Shift in Stick-Fixed Neutral Point Due to the Windmilling Propeller and to the Fuselage of the Republic XF-12 Airplane

Description: Detail calculations are presented of the shifts in stick-fixed neutral point of the Republic XF-12 airplane due to the windmilling propellers and to the fuselage. The results of these calculations differ somewhat from those previously made for this airplane by Republic Aviation Corporation personnel under the direction of Langley flight division personnel. Due to these differences the neutral point for the airplane is predicted to be 37.8 percent mean aerodynamic chord, instead of 40.8 percent mean aerodynamic chord as previously reported.

A summary of the fission product metabolism studies up to March 1944

Description: The metabolic properties of the carrier free long lived fission products in the adult rat have been investigated at different intervals ranging from one to sixty-eight days following administration of the radioactive material. The radio elements studied include the most important long lived fission products, namely, Sr, Y, Zr, Cb, Ra, I, Xe, Cs, Ba, La, Ce, Pr, Np, and the unseparated uranium free fission mixture. The routes of administration included intraperitoneal, intramuscular, oral and intrapulmonary. The tissues assayed for the distribution of the administered radio elements included heart, liver, kidney, testes, spleen, muscle, skin, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, bone, blood, lungs, brain, fat, adrenals, lymph nodes. Urine and feces were collected separately at daily intervals for assay. Data acquired is provided in tabular form. For the fission products which were poorly absorbed from the site of both intramuscular arid intraperitoneal injection (namely, Y, Zr, Cb, Ru, La, Ce, Pr, Np, and the uranium free fission mixture) only the intramuscular data are given here and it is expressed in terms of the distribution of the fraction absorbed from the site of injection. For the radio elements which are completely absorbed following intraperitoneal and intramuscular injection or are absorbed in the digestive tract the distribution is expressed in terms of the administered dose. Due to the difficulty of introducing an exactly known dose into the lungs the distribution in this series of experiments is expressed as distribution of retained activity within the animal. A total of 510 animals were used and 10,500 samples assayed with at least two measurements made on each sample. The average measured recovery of the administered dose in the tissue and excreta was 103.6%.

Summary of research of the section on pharmacology. Progress report for December 1944

Description: Various studies relating the biological and behavioral effect of several uranium fluorides and chlorides as well as fluorine and oxyflourides are related. Most of these studies involved rats, guinea pigs, rabbits or dogs. Route of administration included inhalation, ingestion, or application to the skin.

Potash Salts from Texas-New Mexico Polyhalite Deposits: Commercial Possibilities, Proposed Technology, and Pertinent Salt-Solution Equilibria

Description: From Introduction: "Figure 1 shows the location of sources that have been either exploited or seriously considered at one time or another, super-imposed upon a map indicating by small letters the order of consumption of K2O in the leading States; the amount used in these States, together with the percentage of the total consumption of potash used as fertilizer in the United States in 1939, is given in table 1. Figure 2 shows the domestic production and total consumption of potassium salts, in terms of tons of K2O, with the value per unit at the plants, for each year since 1913. Considered together, these two figures tell a significant story."

Manganese Deposits in the Artillery Mountains Region, Mohave County, Arizona

Description: From abstract: The manganese deposits of the Artillery Mountains region lie within an area of about 25 square miles between the Artillery and Rawhide Mountains, on the west side of the Bill Williams River in west-central Arizona. The richest croppings are on the northeast side of this area, among the foothills of the Artillery Mountains. They are 6 to 10 miles from Alamo. The nearest shipping points are Congress, about 50 miles to the east, and Aguila, about 50 miles to the southeast. The principal manganese deposits are part of a sequence of alluvial fan and playa material, probably of early Pliocene age, which were laid down in a fault basin. They are overlain by later Pliocene (?) basalt flows and sediments and by Quaternary basalt and alluvium. The Pliocene (?) rocks are folded into a shallow composite syncline that occupies the valley between the Artillery and Rawhide Mountains, and the folded rocks along either side of the valley, together with the overlying Quaternary basalt, are broken by faults that have produced a group of horsts, grabens, and step-fault blocks.
