[Facsimile of Junebug Clark The Early Years scrapbook]

Description: From Junebug Clark's introduction: "This scrapbook of the early work of Junebug Clark, was put together by Bernice Clark, my mother, and preserved by my wife, Kay Clark. The original is getting a little bit fragile and delicate so in order for you to take a gander at it, this document was created. I hope that you will have the time to set a spell and go through the pictures and stories within. It is a little bit embarrassing and unbeliveable for me to look at but after undertaking this project I have reconnected with some long lost friends and have come to realize that photography has been a big part of my life and the best part of my life. It was my start and I am forever grateful to the people named on this cover page and included in The Early Years."

INVENTION REPORT--DEVELOPMENT OF A SOLUTION TO OXIDIZE AND DISSOLVE URANIUM METAL AND ITS OXIDES

Description: Decontamination of a high-temperature pressurizedwater reactor core- coolant recirculation system following a fuel element cladding failure requires the dissolution of uranium oxides + uranium metal. An oxalic--peroxide-peracetic solution was developed which was found to be superior to other solutions for this task. The solution composition is: oxalic acid, 2.3 g/l: sodium oxalate, 32.0 g/ l; hydrogen peroxide, 15.0 g/l; 8-quinolinol, 1.0 g/l; and 40% peracetic acid, 12.5 g/l. 8-Quinolinol suppresses the decomposition of H/sub 2/O/sub 2/ in steel vessels. Corrosion data indicate that, of all the structural materials tested, only brass and brass alloys are corronded to any extent by this solution. This solution was used in the decontamination of the Plutonium Recycle Test Reactor. (D.L.C.)

Production of Void and Pressure by Fission Track Nucleation of Radiolytic Gas Bubbles During Power Bursts in a Solution Reactor

Description: The Kinetic Experiment on Water Boiler (KEWB) reactor is a 50-kw aqueous homogeneous research reactor which was designed to study the safety characteristics and dynamic behavior of this class of reactors. When the reactor is placed on a short-period power transient, its aqueous uranyl sulfate fuel solution becomes rapidly supersaturated with H/sub 2/ gas produced by the radiolysis of water. At a critical gas concentration, fission track nucleation of H/sub 2/ bubbles occurs. The rapid formation and growth of these bubbles creates a pressure field, the so-called inential pressure, which causes an increase in solution volume. This increase in solution volume, referred to as void, causes a loss of reactivity and constitutes an important shutdown mechanism. The conditions under which fission track nucleation of gas bubbles occurs are described. It is shown that the void volume and void compensated reactivity can be calculated from a knowledge of the pressure field. Simple models for the pressure field are presented which satisfactorily describe the observed pressures. The inpile capsule and KEWB experiments which confirm the validity of the mechanisms for these processes are described. The equations and data presented make it possible to predict with accuracy the onset and magnitude of the inential pressure and the dynamic reactivity for a large class of aqueous homogeneous reactors.

CHEMICAL PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY QUARTERLY PROGRESS REPORT, JULY-SEPTEMBER 1962

Description: Aqueous zirconium fuel processing studies, directed at adapting the hydrofluoric acid process to continuous dissolution-complexing in order to increase the capacity of the ICPP process, resulted in two successful approaches to the complexing-feed adjustment step. Continuous in-line adjustment (conversion of uranium(IV) to uranium(VI) necessary for extraction) was accomplished in one minute or less at approximately 90 deg C; surges of dissolver product from the operating dissolver up to 1.9 times the flow sheet rate did not inhibit the oxidation of the uranium at this temperature. Batchwise mixing in air of dissolver product solution with complexer solution oxidized the uranium within two minutes at 23 deg C or higher. Further studies of continuous zirconium dissolution indicated that precipitation of uranium at the acid inlet can be a problem, probably because of local concentration gradients of free HF, which result in conditions of low uranium solubility. Control of dissolver acid composition by electrical conductance measurement appeared possible due to the linear relationship of conductance with acid concentration. Aluminum alloy dissolution rates in nitric acid were found to vary significantly, depending on the type and amount of alloying agent. Silicon, nickel, and copper in the alloy significantly decreased the dissolution rate. Batch dissolution times for standard test coupons ranged from 14 minutes for a high purity aluminum to 1400 minutes for an alloy containing 2.9 percent silicon. In the electrolytic dissolution of Nichrome in a bench-scale basket dissolver, the substitution of titanium for niobium as the anode basket material significantly reduced the contact resistance. Current interruption due to contact failure was essentially eliminated, and contact resistance on the titanium was sufficiently low that increasing solution resistance due to acid depletion became a major contributor to current decline as dissolution progressed. The indirect solution-contact electrolytic dissolution principle was further studied, producing data on electrode ...

HEAVY ELEMENT ISOTOPIC ANALYSIS OF UO$sub 2$ FUEL IRRADIATED IN THE VBWR. Report No. 1

Description: Slightly enriched UO/sub 2/ fuel, irradiated in the Vallecitos Boiling Water Reactor (VBWR), with exposures ranging from 100 Mwd/t to 3200 Mwd/t was analyzed for heavy element isotopic composition and compared with computed data. The primary objective of this program is to obtain improved data on the changes in nuclear characteristics with burnup of UO/sub 2/ fuel in a boiling water reactor. This information is important in both evaluating the economics of a given reactor design and also in providing a sounder physics basis for improving reactor designs to minimize the resuiting fuel costs. Uranium oxide pellets, with an enrichment of 2.8 atom percent, were analyzed at several axial positions along the fuel rod, spanning the void (steam fraction) range of 0 to 30%. The isotopic composition for each pellet was computed, utilizing a general fuel cycle depletion code. Results of the analysis of the comparison of the measured and computed data indicate that the total amount of Pu computed is consistently lower than that implied from the measurement by approximately 10%, and the percentage difference between the measured and computed data increases slightly with exposure. One rod was irradiated near a control rod which was approximately 25% inserted. As expected, since no control rod effects were included in the calcuiation, the measured data in that region of the rod shows a greater Pu production per Mwd/t than computed. Physical effects which might explain the small, but apparentiy consistent, differences between the measured and computed data were postulated. It is concluded that the observed differences are the result of a substantial underestimate of void fraction and small uncertainties in fuel exposure and cross sections. (auth)

PHASE TRANSFORMATIONS IN CALCINATION OF NITRATES OF ALUMINUM, STAINLESS STEEL, AND NICHROME

Description: Earlier studies showed that low concentrations of boric acid inhibit the formation of alpha alumina in the fluidized calcination of aluminum nitrate wastes. Studies designed to determine the optimum concentration of boric acid and the relative effectiveness of phosphoric acid were performed by heating synthetic mixtures at moderate pressure; results indicared that they were equally effective at the same molal concentration. Differential thermal analysis of mixtures showed that the boric acid reacted with alumina below 183 deg C. Extraction of boric acid from selected samples indicated that the B was bonded (probably in a random manner, as in glasses) to the alumina rather than to Na, Additlon of fission products was studied, and no unusual effects were found. Transformation studies on calcination of stainless steel nitrates indicate that alpha iron oxide is formed even with the addition of moderate amounts of addltives such as boric acid, phosphoric acid, aluminum nitrate, or combinations of these. Rare earths are the most effective additive found. Similar studies on nichrome wastes indicate that nickel oxide (crystalline) is formed even with additives. The studies include heating of synthetic mixtures at moderate pressure, differential thermal analysis, and use of a laboratory fluidized calciner. (auth)
