Thermal Distortion of SAR Hafnium Control Rod

Description: Abstract: The thermal distortion of a Y-shaped hafnium control rod heated by arrays of individually controlled radiation heaters was studied. The large axial and radial temperature gradients specified for this control rod were easily obtained with the radiation-heating method. The distortion, as measured with dial indicators, amounted to a 2-mil movement of the free end of the rod in the direction of the coolest blade.

Solid-Phase-Reaction Studies of Control-Rod Materials

Description: Report discussing experiments on the interaction of neutron-absorber materials and metal matrix materials used in the fabrication of control rods, such as "boron, cadmium, and some of the rare-earth elements such as gadolinium and europium...In order to evaluate the reactions that might occur during fabrication and use, experiments were carried out in which combinations of the various control materials were heated in intimate contact with the several matrices at elevated temperatures."

Survey of Refractory Uranium Compounds

Description: Abstract: Chemical and physical data on twenty binary uranium compounds that may prove suitable for refractory nuclear fuels were assembled. The compounds were those with aluminum, boron, carbon, iron, nickel, nitrogen, silicon, or sulfur. Too little is known at this time about the compounds to evaluate any of them for fuel. The program is being extended in an effort to provide the needed data.

Survey of End Capping Methods for Zircaloy-2-Clad Uranium Fuel Elements

Description: From Abstract: "A literature survey was made of both welding and brazing methods that might be used to minimize the amount of exposed core material and provide the longest path for corrosion in the event of a defective weld in enextruded Zircaloy-2-clad uranium and uranium-2 w/o zirconium fuel elements."

The Solubility of Oxygen in Uranyl Sulphate Solutions at Elevated Temperatures

Description: Abstract: "The solubility of oxygen in uranyl sulphate solutions and in water at 212, 275, and 325 F, and at oxygen partial pressures up to 1500 psia was investigated. The results are presented in tabular and graphic form. The solubility is proportional to the partial pressure of oxygen. The ratio of solubility in the uranyl sulphate solution to solubility in water at the same temperature and pressure is a function of the concentration of the salt in solution."

A Recirculating Supercritical Water Loop

Description: From abstract: "A recirculating high-pressure stainless steel loop was developed for the study of heat transfer from small-bore tubes to supercritical water. It was found that under certain conditions, hot spots developed on the test section. The conditions leading to the formation of hot spots were investigated; the results of several runs are tabulated here."

The Reactivity of Uranium and Blacosolv

Description: Abstract: "Blacosolv, trichloroethylene, is used in degreasing uranium metal. Tests were made under possible industrial conditions to determine whether a hazardous reaction between uranium and Blacosolv could occur. Temperature-rise measurements showed that there was no reaction of the metal, in various states of subdivision, with Blacosolv at temperatures up to 850 F. However, a reaction was observed in tests under which the finely divided metal, wet with solvent, was subjected to a severe impact."

Plastic Flow During Extrusion of Tubing

Description: Abstract: "A study of plastic flow during the extrusion of tubing was made by extruding colored Plasticine billets in a small-scale extrusion press. Decreasing the included angle of the conical die and tapering the ram end of the billet decreased the amount of coextrusion of the backer block into the tubing, lubricating the billet also decreased coextrusion."
