Annealing of Radiation Induced Defects in Fused Silica

Description: Technical report describes how glasses and crystals subjected to ionizing radiation develop absorption bands and become colored. The coloring of defects can be used to determine how nuclear reactor induced defects anneal out or disappear as an irradiated sample is heated.

The Standard Molar Free Energy of Formation of MgCl2, CeCl3, ThCl4, and UCl3 Obtained by Solid State EMF Techniques

Description: Technical report about a study in the use of galvanic cells using solid electrolytes to obtain thermodynamic data at high temperatures to study the free energy of formation of chlorides using Daniell cells where all components are solid. "The experimental techniques used are presented, including cell construction, preparation of anhydrous materials, and the handling of reactive metals and hydroscopic materials for galvanic cells." from the abstract. Results are presented for magnesium chloride, cerium chloride, uranium chloride, and thorium chloride, and are compared with other available data.

The Temperature Dependence of Birefringence in Irradiated Polyethylene

Description: Technical report on a study where the birefringence of irradiated polyethylene was observed as a function of temperature. The data is consistent with a mechanism in which crosslinking limits the growth and annealing of crystallites. Crosslinks formed in material which was oriented at the time the crosslinks were formed, results in an oriented gel. This effect explains the birefringence and the persistence of nucleation sites at high temperatures.

Eddy Transport in Liquid-Metal Heat Transfer

Description: This report seeks to "develop a practical method of evaluating the eddy diffusivity of heat transfer for liquid metals, so that it can be incorporated into the more or less standard theoretical methods to give heat transfer coefficients which are in reasonable agreement with experimental facts"--from introduction.

Determination of Diffusion Cooling in Graphite by Measurement of the Average Neutron Velocity

Description: From Abstract: "The diffusion cooling coefficient in graphite has been determined by measuring the change in the asymptotic average velocity with buckling, by pulsed neutron methods. The times necessary to establish equilibrium spectra in graphite and heavy water have been measured and are reported."

The Brookhaven Chemonuclear in-Pile Test Loop

Description: Technical report outlining the plan to develop the Brookhaven chemonuclear in-pile test loop because the interest in utilizing reactor radiation energy (fission-fragment recoil and neutron-gamma) for production of chemicals has developed to the point where a loop to study chemonuclear system in a reactor under dynamic conditions is necessary.
