Bibliography and Index on Vacuum and Low Pressure Measurement, January 1960 to December 1965

Description: From Abstract: "The bibliography, a supplement to NBS Monograph 35, of the same title, covers the years 1960 to 1965, inclusive, and include 109 references for prior years not listed in Monograph 35. It contains 1787 references, 38 of which are to books. The references, besides those directly concerned with pressure measurement, include those on vacuum technology which may bear on the technique of vacuum measurement, such as on adsorption and desorption, diffusion of gases into solids, gas conductance and hardware such as pumps, seals and traps."

Table of Wavenumbers: Volume 2, 7000 A to 1000 mu

Description: Report discussing "A two-volume table for converting wavelengths in standard air to wavenumbers in vacuum. Wave-numbers are given to the nearest 0.001 K (cm^-1) for wavelengths from 2000 to 7000 A in volume 1, and 7000 A to 1000 m in volume II."

Table of wavenumbers: Volume 1, 2000 A to 7000 A

Description: From Extension of Tables: "Because of its range and size, this table of wavenumbers is in two volumes, Volume I presenting wavenumbers for all wavelengths between 2000 and 7000 A, and Volume II giving wave-numbers for all wavelengths from 7000 A to 10000000 A=1 mm. In some cases Volume I may suffice for ionic spectra, and in others Volume II may be adequate for molecular spectra, but in general both volumes will needed to cover the entire range of spectral wavelengths measured in standard air."

Arguello Area (ARMS-II)

Description: "An Aerial Radiographic Measuring Survey (ARMS) of the Arguello area was made for the Civil Effects Test Operations, Division of Biology and Medicine, U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, by Edgerton, Germeshausen & Grier, Inc.(EG&G), between Apr. 5 and Apr. 29, 1962. The survey was part of a nationwide program to measure the present environmental levels of gamma radiation" (p. 5).

Design of the Argonne Low Power Reactor (ALPR)

Description: Report containing "[a] description (...) of the design of a prototype "packaged" nuclear power plant. The purpose of the plant is to alleviate fuel oil logistics and storage problems posed by remote auxiliary DEW Line radar stations north of the Arctic Circle. The ALPR (redesignated SL-1) is a 3 Mwt, heterogeneous, highly enriched uranium- fueled, natural-circulation boiling water reactor, cooled and moderated with light water. Steam at 300 psig, dry and saturated (421 deg F) is passed directly from the reactor to a conventional turbine-generator to produce electric power (300 kw nominal) and space-heating (400 kw) requirements consistent with rigid mechanical and structural specifications prescribed by the military, and dictated by the extreme geophysics prevailing at the ultimate site. The over-all design criteria emphasize: simplicity and reliability of operation and maintenance, with minimum supervision; minimum on-site construction; maximum use of standard components; limited water supply; utilization of local gravel for biological shielding; transportability by air lift; and nominal 3-year fuel operating lifetime per core loading."

Irradiation of an Aluminum Alloy-Clad Ceramic Pellet-Fueled Plate

Description: From Introduction: "An experiment, designated MTR-W10, was designed to determine the effects of high burnup on the cladding and fuel of an aluminum-1% nickel alloy (M-388)-clad ceramic pellet-fuelded plate if the type manufactured at Argonne for the BORAX-IV core. Conditions of irradiation were selected to allow local boiling at the high flux end of the plate at a pressure of 600 psig."

Transient Behavior of a Natural-Circulation Loop Operating Near The Thermodynamic Critical Point

Description: From Introduction: "Interest in utilizing natural-circulation loops to obtain results that aid in the design of some boiler and nuclear reactor coolant systems has focused attention on the dynamic behavior of such loops. Much analytical and experimental work has been done so as to permit predictions of the transient behavior of both single-phase and two-phase neutral-circulation systems. The analytical portion of the study consisted of simulating the loop by utilizing a digital computer to predict the measured transients."

Economic Effects of Mineral Content in Municipal Water Supplies

Description: Report describing the application of conventional cost experience to physical features of source of supply, treatment, pumping, transmission, distribution, and storage for community water supply sources. Some costs due to readily removable water quality characteristics like suspended solids, color, taste, and order are measurable, as are other conventional costs of operation and maintenance. Other costs related to an excess of dissolved solids, however, tend to be unknown and are the subject of this study.
