Sea-Level Performance Tests of a 22-Inch-Diameter Pulse-Jet Engine at Various Simulated Ram Pressures

Description: Report on sea-level performance tests of a 22-inch-diameter pulse-jet engine on a thrust stand. The tests were conducted at several ram pressures and the entire range of fuel flows that the engine can operate at. Information about the maximum-thrust operation, operating frequency, maximum combustion chamber pressures, and operating lives is provided.

Wind-Tunnel Tests of a 1/6-Scale Model of Republic XF-12 Vertical Tail with Stub Fuselage and Stub Horizontal Tail

Description: "A 1/6-scale model of the Republic XF-12 vertical tail with stub fuselage and stub horizontal tail was tested in the Langley stability tunnel to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of the model, The investigation included a study of the effects of boundary layer thickness, rudder area, and cover-plate alinement on the aerodynamic characteristics. Tuft studies were made in the vicinity of the junction of the vertical and stub horizontal tails" (p. 1).

The evolution of iodine during metal dissolution

Description: During the dissolution in nitric acid of uranium metal which has been irradiated in a pile, radio-iodine (8.0 day) and radio-xenon (5.3 day) are liberated along with the oxides of nitrogen. Since in the plant these gases are discharged into the atmosphere, the presence of the activities (particularly radio-iodine because of its greater chemical reactivity) presents a physiological hazard. As a consequence, the cooling period (that is, the time between the discharge of the metal from the pile and the dissolution of the metal in nitric acid for the extraction of the product) should be sufficiently long so that the activities will have decreased through decay to the point where their concentrations in the atmosphere will not exceed 2.5 {times} 10{sup {minus}13} curies/cc* and 5 {times} 10{sup {minus}11} curies/cc* for radio-iodine and radio-xenon, respectively. A study was made of the existing information concerning the liberation of iodine and xenon during the dissolution of the metal and the information was summarized in a memorandum. At that time it was apparent that radio-iodine would present the greater hazard, and that very little was known about the factors governing the liberation of iodine during the metal dissolution. For this reason, an investigation of the factors involved in the liberation of iodine during metal dissolution was undertaken in the laboratory. This document describes the investigation and its results. 5 refs., 7 figs., 4 tabs.

Progress Report - Project 31: Vapor Phase Chlorination of TO₃

Description: "This work is a continuation of an investigation begun in January, 1945, on a laboratory study of various methods for the chlorination of TO3. The work carried out this month deals entirely with gas phase chlorination, the liquid phase chlorination of TO3 having been turned over to Miss Hubbard. Gas phase chlorination of TO3 by means of CCl4, S2Cl2, SOCl2, SO2Cl2, and Cl2 have been carried out under varying conditions in the several different types of reactors."
