Evaluation of The Texas Company Airborne Radioactivity Survey at Blanding, Utah

Description: Purpose and scope: The purpose of this report is to present an analysis and evaluation of the airborne radioactivity survey of the Blanding, Utah district conducted by The Texas Company on behalf of the Atomic energy Commission. Within the scope of the report, only the results of the airborne survey and the data used in its evaluation are presented. No attempt is made to discuss the details of the survey or of the drilling program conducted in the area. A separate report by P. 1. Melanoon, on the drilling program is in preparation.

Direct Current Electromagnetic Pumps

Description: Abstract: "A number of direct current conduction type electromagnetic pumps for liquid metals were constructed. Pumping capacities of over 400 gpm and efficiencies of over 50 percent were obtained. NaK alloy at temperatures up to 400 C was used in the test. The large currents required were obtained from rectifiers or from a homopolar generator constructed for the purpose."

Flux Distributions and Critical k [infinity] Values for Cylindrical Reactors Simulation the MTR

Description: From summary: "In order to estimate the effect of placing bismuth and thorium layers near the MTR core, radial flux distributions and k[infinity] values were calculated for cylindrical reactors having cylindrical layers of these materials of the same height as the core and beryllium reflector and placed either next to the core or embedded in the beryllium reflector."

A Precise Potentiometric Titration Method for the Determination of Uranium

Description: Abstract: "A precise potentiometric method for the determination of uranium in essentially pure uranium oxides is described. Ten gram samples of oxides are reduced in a Jones reductor and titrated potentiometrically to U+4, using platinum and tungsten electrodes. A weighed amount of solid Bureau of Standards potassium dichromate is then used to oxidize at least 99 percent of the uranous ion, and the oxidation is completed by titration with 0.01 N potassium dichromate using calomel and platinum electrodes. This method, which is based on a primary chemical standard, has a precision of +/- 0.015% on a single determination at the 95 percent confidence interval."
