The Effect of Crystallite Size on the Bulk Density and Strength Properties of Uranium Dioxide Specimens

Description: Fused uranium dioxide was separated into fractions of varying particle size by air separation. Specimens of the nominal size of 1/8 by 1/4 by 1½ in. were formed by hydrostatic pressing, firing, and lapping. Specimens prepared from the 0 to 5 μ fraction were the strongest and most dense. The room-temperature density was about 92% of theoretical and the room-temperature flexural strength was about 12,000 1b. per sq. in. When tested at 1000°C., the strength was about 18,000 1b. per sq. in. The fle… more

Coupled Transmission Lines

Description: In a discussion about design of cyclotron resonators, the suggestion has been made that a wide range variable-frequency system might be constructed with two coupled resonant circuits. It also would present the possibility of tuning without the switching of high-current contacts, a troublesome item now commonly used for cyclotrons. One of the circuits would be the dee and its stem which might, or might not, be tuned. The second circuit could be located out of the magnet gap in a region where mo… more

The Effect of Fluctuations in the Widths on Neutron Reaction Cross Sections

Description: The general Wigner-Eisenbud theory is used to develop a method of analysis for the cross sections of fissionable nuclei. The method is employed in giving a reasonable description of the low energy cross sections in U/sup 235/. The single level fit for U/sup 235/ is known to be unreasonable. Many level expressions for the cross sections are derived--the only approximation to the general theory being the neglect of all but a small group of resonances. It is shown that regardless of the number or … more

A Study for the Feasibility for the Large Sale Recovery of Ionium (Thorium-230) from the Uranium Ore Milling Industry in the United States

Description: Over the past ten years, there has been considerable interest and expenditure on the recovery of ionium (thorium-230) from certain residues accumulated from the World War II uranium process at St. Louis, Missouri. Most of these efforts were reported in the classified literature. However, an unclassified report was issued recently by the Mallinckrodt Chemical Works on the plant design for ionium recovery. A review of the earlier efforts shows that consideration of ionium recovery was limited to… more

Automatic Scanning And Measuring Of Bubble Chamber Photographs

Description: The development of high-energy charged particle accelerators such as the Bevatron and of improved nuclear-event detection devices such as the Berkeley 72-in. hydrogen bubble chamber has greatly increased the need for high-speed data reduction of nuclear events. Full exploitation of the potential of the 72-in. bubble chamber demands a very high-speed analysis system. This paper describes an approach to such a system.

Some Unsolved Problems Of Explosive Sensitivity

Description: To properly assess the "sensitivity" of explosives systems under impact conditions we must obtain detailed information on these mechanisms by which explosives are ignited by impact. It is necessary to know which impact conditions represent the greatest hazard to explosive materials, as well as to know for a given impact condition the relative responses of explosives of interest. I should like to describe to you a program sponsored jointly by the Department of Defense and the Atomic Energy Commi… more

A Study Of The Homopolar Generator As An Energy-Storage Device

Description: In the course of modern physics research, the need frequently arises for storage of large quantities of electrical energy which can be periodically discharged at high peak power into a load. Until recently, the homopolar machine has been an intriguing device having considerable academic interest but little practical value. In recent years, successful machines have been developed to utilize liquid-metal brush systems. The liquid-metal brush overcomes all the problems associated with current coll… more

Nuclear Safety of Right Elliptic and Right Annular Cylinders

Description: Past experience has shown that the demand for increase separations plant capacity comes up very regularly. One of the variables which greatly affects plant capacity is cross-sectional area of the individual vessels. Larger areas permit greater flow rates as well as more space for the installation of heat transfer piping (shell and tube concentrators). Design considerations of the separations plants vessels have been based on both circular cylinder and slab geometries. A study has been made to d… more

Representation of Slowing Down Functions in Water by Synthetic Kernels

Description: Fermi, Anderson, and Nagle's experimental distribution of Indium resonance neutrons around a point source of fission neutrons in water has been fitted by analytic expressions which are source functions in the two-group, three-group, Fermi and Christy-Wheeler pile theory. The Christy-Wheeler function (exponential followed by a Gaussian) is the best fit; the two-group function (exponential) is slightly better than the Fermi Gaussian.

The Contamination of Cooling Water by a P-9 Plant

Description: The following sources of contamination in cooling water of the P-9 plant are considered: (1) Fission recoils, (2) Corrosion of metal, (3) Recoil from aluminum, (4) Induced activity in the water. It is found that for a P-9 plant of 3.5 x 10(4) KW contamination of the river at "X" should not exceed the .1 r criterion unless coating failure occurs. Tables of the amount of coating failure permissible are given as a function of holdup time.

Exploratory Studies of Hydrazine Formation by Radioactive Ionization

Description: The production yields of hydrazine by various ionization methods are compared. The maximum value of M/N (number of molecules reacting per ion pairs) for electric discharge was 0.25 and for beta particles on liquid ammonia, M/N = 0.31. A 1-Mev reactor could produce 1.6 kg of hydrazine per hour if M/N = 0.04 as determined by alpha particles on liquid ammonia. About 300 ev of energy were needed to form a hydrazine molecule. (C.J.G.)

On the Stability of Certain Difference Schemes for Linear Parabolic PDE with Constant Coefficient

Description: Introduction. The von Neumann stability criterion is used to analyze the stability of three types of difference schemes for partial differential equations. It is shown that, contrary to the usual rule of thumb, there exist symmetric implicit schemes for a class of equations which are unstable for every mesh-ratio but that this cannot occur if (a) there are fewer than three "space" variables or (b) the difference expression is used to approximate the mixed derivative.

The Chelate Process III : Preliminary Continuous-Operation Studies

Description: Abstract: The rate of extraction of PuIV in either direction between benzene-TTA and aqueous HNO3 solutions is shown in the present study to be fast enough so that application of the chelate process to continuous operation should be feasible. This conclusion is based on two primary considerations: 1. The mechanism limiting the rate of extraction appears to be diffusion and not chemical-reaction-limiting. 2. The extraction may be controlled by adjustment of the system conditions to give almost a… more

Two-Phase Pressure Losses Quarterly Progress Report: Fifth Quarter, February 12, 1963 - May 12, 1963

Description: Technical report describing that void measurements were made in the 1/2-inch by 1-3/4-inch rectangular channel, for both flow up and flow down, at pressures of 600, 1000, and 1400 psia, and at various flows and quantities. Results at 1000 psia and 20 percent quality show that for the lowest flow both the void distribution and the average void are much different for flow down than for flow up, the void fraction for flow down being much higher. However, when the flow is increased both the void d… more
