Transformations in uranium-base alloys : summary report, December 14, 1955 - March 31, 1957

Description: From abstract: "Transformation kinetics of binary U -Nb and ternary U-Nb-base alloys were investigated. Additions included zirconium, chromium, titanium, silicon, nickel, nnthenium, and vanadium. Encapsulated samples were given a homogenizstion anneal at 1000 or 1100/sup o/C, water-quenched from 906/sup o/C to retain the phase, and reheated to temperatures between 360 and 600/sup o/C. The metastability of the phase was examined by metallographic, hardness, resistometric, dilatometric and x-ray-diffraction techniques. The U -Nb system is characterized by a monotectoid decomposition of the high temperature allotrope at about 645/sup o/C to form alpha and ₂, a niobium-rich cubic structure. Decomposition in U-Nb and in most U-Nb-X alloys occurred by a continuous precipithtion of alpha from the body-centered cubic phase with a resultant enrichment in niobium of until the equilibrium ₂ composition was reached. In the U-Nb-Ti and U-Nb-V systems, alpha and /sub 2/ were coprecipitated. Annealing at 550 and 600/sup o/C produced decomposition products which, in most materials, originated at the grain boundaries; a fine precipitate which initiated throughout the matrix was observed at lower annealing temperatures. Increasing the niobium content resulted in greatly increased stability. The following elements added to a U-Nb base were found to retard transformation of the phase: zirconium, chromium, ruthenium, and vanadium. Additions of titanium, silicon, and nickel produced alloys which were less stable than the U-Nb base to which they were added. Cold-working a U-7 wt. % Nb-2 wt. % Zr composition caused a more rapid transformation upon annealing at 360 and 450/ sup o/C, and the resulting microstructures were different. Continuous cooling transformation studies were conducted on U-10 wt. % Nb materials, solution annealed at 700 and 950°C, and cooled at various linear rates to temperatures between 300 and 600/sup o/C. Cooling rates between 8.5 and 14.5/sup o/C per minute were required to prevent transformation of ...

Preliminary Studies of Scavenging Systems Related to Radioactive Fallout : Summary Report, May 1, 1960 to March 31, 1961

Description: Abstract: "Experimental investigation of aerosol particle capture by evaporating and condensing water drops has shown that capture is a function of the rate of water drop growth and aerosol particle diameter. Capture was found to be proportional to the rate of water vapor condensation and inversely proportional to aerosol particle diameter. The influence of water vapor gradient and particle size on aerosol particle capture during evaporation is insignificant. The experimental results are explained on the basis of particle penetration through the boundary layer of a water drop. An analysis of previous research on radioactivity of dry particulate matter in an urban atmosphere is included."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, August 1 to October 1, 1962

Description: Introduction: "This study is concerned with the classification of submicron aerosols by electrostatic means. The controlled charging of the particles without undue aerosol losses is of principal interest. We are investigating means of eliminating the interference due to the deposition of small and large particles in the same area. The sampler is to be developed to classify atmospheric dust particles at a rate approaching 1 cfm. During the period covered by this report, work was concerned with the charger and with bringing the high-volume classifier into routing operation. Further tests were made on the classification of atmospheric dust."

The variables of concern are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, and initial charge. During this period optimum charger design was studied. The results will serve as a basis for a systematic study of particle charging. A number of improvements were incorporated into the classifier flow system and electrical circuits. The technique for photographing deposits in the electron microscope was also improved, and sample photographs are included."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, February 1 to March 31, 1962

Description: Introduction: "This project is a study of eletrostatic classification of submicron aerosols with emphasis on particles below 0.1[mu]. Previous work has shown that classification of particles between 0.1 to 1.0[mu] is feasible by this process. Further improvements along this line include the elimination of interference from initial aerosol charge and increase in sampling rate. The effect of heavy deposits on collection have to be established. More information is desired on the charging regime below 0.1[mu]. Also the overlap of the smallest particles with the larger ones has to be eliminated. It is also of interest to study the possibility of measuring the current due to the precipitating particles. This would make it possible to automate the device. During this period project work was initiated again. There was some delay in finalizing the contract and the laboratory work was not started until early in March."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, April 15 to June 15, 1961

Description: Abstract: "This program is a study of the basic variables that affect electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols of submicron size,especially below 0.1[mu]. The variables of interest are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, and initial charge. During this period research was concerned with classifying particles as small as 0.01[mu]. This research included work on an aerosol generator for monodispersed 0.015-[mu] gold particles. The performance of the charger was further improved by studying its basic electrical characteristics. Tests with the electrostatic classifier showed very clearly the interference due to the stabilizer material associated with polystyrene latex suspensions. These suspensions are used to produce monodispersed aerosols for calibration."
