Development of a Welding Process for End Closures on NPR and KER Fuel Element

Description: With the development of the zircaloy-2 clad uranium fuel element, it was necessary to develop a method of closing the end of the element after the extruded tubes were cut to the desired length. Regardless of the ultimate design of the closure, a satisfactory zircaloy-2 fusion welding technique had to be worked out. The first fully successful welding was performed with electron beam welding in a vacuum chamber. To make satisfactory welds, the electron beam welding involved time and equipment, pl… more

Sector 30 collimator radiation

Description: The collimators at Sector 30 of the SLAC accelerator are designed to scrape off a significant fraction (e.g., {approximately}20%) of the SLC beam. The electromagnetic cascade shower that develops in the collimator, and in the scraper and waveguide downbeam, leads to very high radiation exposures of TV cameras (and other devices) located nearby. The collimator (point) source accounts for one-third of the dose and is best shielded by extending the radius of the copper scraper. Radiation from the … more

Program for calculating x-ray powder diffraction interplanar (d) spacings with a Tektronix-31 desk top programmable calculator

Description: A Tektronix-31 (Tektronix Inc. Beaverton, Oregon) desk top calculator program, which is used as a backup to the PDP-8/I computer program, is described. The program yields interplanar (d) spacings and (2theta) angle values from measurements made on an x-ray diffraction film of a powdered sample of a crystalline material. Use of the calculator provides accurate computations in a relatively rapid time interval when the PDP-8/I is not functioning because of downtime for repairs, maintenance, etc.

Development of short pulse laser pumped x-ray lasers

Description: X-ray lasers have been extensively studied around the world since the first laboratory demonstration on the Novette laser at LLNL in 1984. The characteristic properties of short wavelength, high monochromaticity, collimation and coherence make x-ray lasers useful for various applications. These include demonstrations of biological imaging within the water window, interferometry of laser plasmas and radiography of laser-heated surfaces. One of the critical issues has been the high power pump req… more

3(omega) Damage: Growth Mitigation

Description: The design of high power UV laser systems is limited to a large extent by the laser-initiated damage performance of transmissive fused silica optical components. The 3{omega} (i.e., the third harmonic of the primary laser frequency) damage growth mitigation LDRD effort focused on understanding and reducing the rapid growth of laser-initiated surface damage on fused silica optics. Laser-initiated damage can be discussed in terms of two key issues: damage initiated at some type of precursor and r… more

Evaluation of P/M Ring Gear Using Computed Tomography and Ultrasonic Testing

Description: Ultrasonic (UT) and computed tomography (CT) evaluation of a P/M ring gear was performed at LLNL to characterize the gear and to determine the relative sensitivity of the two techniques to defects of interest. The features of concern lie at the root of the teeth and in layers along the sides of the teeth. These layers can be detected using metalography but success depends on chance and the number of sections polished. Much of the current focus is on improving the sensitivity of the CT scan and … more

Sensor modules for wireless distributed sensor networks

Description: A national security need as well as environmental monitoring need exists for networks of sensors. The advantages of a network of sensors over a single sensor are improved range, sensitivity, directionality, and data readability. Depending upon the particular application, sensors can be acoustic, chemical, biological, thermal or inertial. A major desire in these sensor networks is to have the individual sensor and associated electronics small and low enough in power that the battery can also be … more

Intercomparison of Climate Data Sets as a Measure of Observational Uncertainty

Description: Uncertainties in climate observations are revealed when alternate observationally based data sets are compared. General circulation model-based ''reanalyses'' of meteorological observations will yield different results from different models, even if identical sets of raw unanalyzed data form their starting points. We have examined 25 longitude-latitude fields (including selected levels for three-dimensional quantities) encompassing atmospheric climate variables for which the PCMDI observational… more

Increased process water pressure to 105 buildings

Description: This document discusses increases in water pressure from the 190 Building process pumps which has been contemplated for a range of pressures up to 550 PSIG. The existing process pumps are dual units, consisting of a steam turbine driven primary pump operated: in series with an electric driven secondary pump. The secondary pumps installed in 100-B, D, F, and H Areas were designed for 400 PSIG working pressure, and were given factory hydrostatic tests of 600 PSIG. The 100-DR pumps were given fact… more

[Discussion by R. M. Evans at a meeting held with the members of the Military Liaison Committee on February 17, 1954]

Description: Characteristics of the heavy water moderated and cooled reactor when fueled with natural uranium were compared with those of Hanford. The following topics were covered: (1) fundamental safety of the Savannah River Plant reactor and its fundamental efficiency as neutron collector; (2) many critical volumes result in a complex control system and high sensitivity of flux pattern to rod position changes; (3) due to lack of time had to sue slugs initially; (4) had to use D{sub 2}O sparingly; (5) eff… more

Specifications for Multifunction Storage Unit Type I

Description: The Multifunction Storage Unit, Type I is a storage device capable of storing geometrical information in visual display form. The storage is accomplished by means of an electrostatic storage cathode ray tube. The Storage Unit consists of this storage tube and its associated circuitry. Associated circuitry is considered to be all circuitry required by the storage tube itself which is necessary to make the unit a self-contained storage unit. The following six external signals are all that is requ… more

Expansion task force: Old reactors speed of control for no overbore cases

Description: The Criteria for Speed of Control must be met for all cases being considered in the Expansion Studies. These Criteria are dependent upon the ratio Volume of water/volume of uranium in the process channel, the reactor power level, and the rate at which the vertical rods are released and inserted into the reactor. For those cases wherein the graphite channel is overbored by 0.200 inch., the criteria can generally be met for the power levels under consideration since the ratio of Vw/Vu is maintain… more

300 Area, February 12 through February 18

Description: Extrusion was run on one day, February 2, and a total of 271 billets (178 Type G, 12 type BT, and 81 red band) were processed. Two failures occurred among the red band billets; UM 6610 had begun to melt in the furnace and TX 3323 disintegrated on being extruded through the die. Samples of these billets are being checked chemically and metallurgically in an attempt to ascertain the cause for the hot-short characteristics of these billets. A sample cut from a rod which possessed zero strength (fe… more
