Preliminary Report on 2% U235-Enriched UF4-C25H52 Critical Assemblies

Description: A series of critical experiments with blocks of 2% U235-enriched UF4-C25H52 has been initiated at the ORNL Critical Experiments Facility. Thus far assemblies with H:U235 atomic ratios of 195 and 294 have been built in parallelepipedal and simulated cylindrical geometries, both reflected and unreflected. From the results the minimum critical masses for reflected spheres have been determined to be 16.3 and 8.5 kg of U235 for fuel mixtures with H:U235 atomic ratios of 195 and 294, respectively.

Aerosol Collection by Wetted Fiberglass Media

Description: A wet collection system for aerosols has been developed using fibrous media. Tests show the performance to be in accord with recently developed theory of collection by fibrous media. The effects of varying aerosol particle size, particle density, and gas velocity have indicated that inertial impaction is the primary collection mechanism. Three-year operating experience on several full scale plant installations shows reliable performance.

Grüneisen's Law and the Fusion Curve at High Pressure

Description: A method to determine the correction to Grüneisen's law corresponding to the effect of the electrons at high pressure. It is assumed that the lattice contribution to the pressure is small and that the equation of state of the solid can be approximated by results of the statistical Thomas-Fermi atom model for the electron pressure.

Time Behavior of Godiva Through Prompt Critical

Description: The transition region between short, but controlled, pile periods and uncontrolled, highly-supercritical conditions has been investigated with an unreflected, spherical uranium assembly (Godiva). This study was undertaken because knowledge of the behavior of supercritical systems is important in evaluation of reactor hazards and also the hazards of less standard operations involving possibly critical quantities of active material.

Bibliography of ORNL-BSF Reports Pertinent to Swimming Pool Type Reactor Design (Revised)

Description: Much of the shielding work carried out with the Bulk Shielding Reactor (BSR) has yielded data of particular interest for the design of swimming pool type reactors, However, it is often difficult for a reactor designer to locate such data since it may be recorded in a report primarily concerned with shielding problems. Therefore, this memorandum presents a bibliography of reports from the Bulk Shielding Facility arranged according to the application of data to the various aspects of reactor desi… more

Air Scattering of Co60 Gamma Rays: Theory Versus Experiment

Description: For Co60 source at 15 meters, the air-scattered gamma dose rate predicted by theory is excerpted from ORNL-1575, pp. 167-203. This is compared with experimental measurements for the same source and comparable geometry reported by Convair in CVAC-170T. After applying an appropriate correction for ground scattering as estimated in Mart-55-16T (Convair), the two results are found to be in substantial agreement.
