The H-4, H-5, and H-6 Irradiation Experiments: Irradiation of N-Reactor Graphite, Interim Report Number 1

Description: Report regarding an experimental program by Hanford Laboratories' in order "to determine the long-term irradiation behavior of the graphite used as the moderator in N-Reactor. The primary objectives of the program are to provide data for predictions of the distortion of the N-Reactor moderator and the stress conditions which could arise from the difference in the the rate and extent of contraction between the transverse and parallel orientations of the graphite bars" (p. 1).
