Cost Study of a 100-Mw(e) Direct-Cycle Boiling Water Reactor Plant

Description: Report issued by the Argonne national Laboratory discussing a technical and economic evaluation of a direct-cycle light-water boiling reactor designed for natural circulation and internal steam-water separation. The reference 100-Mw(e) reactor power plant design evolved from the study should have the best chance (compared to similar plants) of approaching the 8 to 9 mill/kwh total power-cost level. This report includes tables, and illustrations.

Irradiation of an Aluminum Alloy-Clad, Aluminum-Uranium Alloy-Fueled Plate

Description: Report issued by the Argonne National Laboratory discussing irradiation tests of an aluminum alloy-clad, aluminum-uranium alloy fuel plate. As stated in the introduction, "calculations were made to determine the lowest possible pressure which would allow the maximum possible local boiling on the plate and still assure a margin of safety against burnout" (p. 9). This report includes tables, illustrations, and photographs.

Evaluation of reduction of I.D. defects in I and E tubing with various billet I.D.: Experiment Number U-11

Description: It has been thoroughly documented in previous Bridgeport Brass Company reports that a problem exists in the production of HAPO I and E ``O`` size slugs via the extrusion route due to an excessive number of rejects for I.D. seams. As a result of a previous short-run experiments, it was suggested that smaller I.D. billets be employed, thus reducing the reduction ratio on the I.D. It was thought that this factor may contribute to the seam formation in the extreme flow demanded of the metal. It was also thought that the long billets, half of an ingot, could contribute to this defect. Therefore in this extrusion, some short billets, one-third of an ingot, were employed. Other methods or techniques for reducing the incidence of this I.D. defect will be studied later. It was intended to limit the present experiment to a study of the potential reduction involved in the above; namely, billet length and billet I.D., in an extrusion experiment with sufficiently large quantity of billets to give a fairly large number of slugs. By proper design, other contributors to the defect were held constant or randomized. This experiment proved definitely that a reduction in I.D. rejects due to seams and mechanical causes could be effected by a reduction in billet I.D. A conclusive result showed the 1 5/8 I.D. billet to produce the least extruded I.D. rejects. It was also found that extruded I.D.`s of less than .340 inch would improve the I.D. surface quality; that is, the incidence of the I.D. seam rejects. In this production run, a new method of packaging the I and E extruded rods resulted in receipt of rods at MCW with superior straightness. Therefore, the method of packaging for shipment in steel pans will be discontinued in the future.

A Transistorized Reactivity Measurement System

Description: An all-transistor system has been developed to be used in measuring the reactivity of the reactor in the Sandia Engineering Reactor Facility. In operation, the system triggers a pulsed neutron source (PNS) in the reactor and counts the resulting neutron flux, thus giving a measure of the time constant of the reactor. The counting is done in eleven time-sequenced counting channels. The reactor time constant is a measure of the reactor reactivity.

High Velocity Shock Testing, Equipment and Methods

Description: The need for special high velocity shock testing is pointed out and equipment that has been developed to meet these needs is discussed. The concept of velocity-change and its importance in shock-testing technology is brought out. The three types of equipment discussed are: accelerated drop testers, pneumatic actuators, and air guns. Examples of each type and their capabilities and limitations are presented.
