Compact Thermoelectric Converter. Phase II-C. Final Report, 1 July 1968-30 June 1969

Description: Tubular thermoelectric module technology was advanced during Phase II-C of the Compact Converter Program to the extent that the baseline temperature for module testing was raised from 1000°F 1100°F. Significant development work was performed to produce a system utilizing a heat pipe that transmitted thermal energy from an external heat source to a tubular module.

A heuristic examination of scaling

Description: This study investigates the scaling of dimensions of craters formed by nuclear explosive sources as well as the problem of making consistent estimates of other geonuclear effects including maximum base surge radius, vented fraction of the gamma emitting radionuclides appearing in close-in fallout, and main cloud dimensions. Input to the proposed scaling method includes the Froude number as determined by the depth of burial and the mound surface velocity at vent time, and the pressure in the cavity at vent time. These inputs are provided from long-running cratering-mechanincs numerical calculations. Illustrations are given of the use of the method for 1 Mt and 200 kt cratering events. 10 refs., 10 figs., 7 tabs.

Development of High Energy Polymers Systems: 6th Monthly Status Report

Description: The major objective of the current program is the preparation of high energy hydroxyl-terminated polyester prepolymers from combinations of energetic diols and dicarboxylic acid chlorides. The initial work was based on the reactions of 4,4-dinitropimeloyl chloride (DNPCl) with 2,2,8,8-tetranitro-4,6-dioxa-1,9-nonanediol (DINOL) and 3(dinitrofluoro- ethoxy)-1,2-propanediol (REX-18). In an effort to develop a smooth and rapid polyester polymerization method, reactions between DNPCl and both DINOL and REX-18 have been carried out in THF containing pyridine. It was expected that the pyridine would act as an HCl acceptor, permitting room temperature polymerizations. This was indeed shown to be the case. In fact, when the glycol and DNPCl were dissolved in THF and pyridine added rapidly, a very exothermic reaction took place, with copious quantities of pyridine hydrochloride being precipitated. Slow addition of pyridine to the reaction mixture also resulted in an exotherm. In both cases, brown polymers were produced and they were very difficult to work-up. The next series of polymerizations will be carried out at 0{degrees}C in an effort to control the polymerizations more carefully and avoid color formation. The diacid chloride of 2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethoxyfumaric acid has apparently been synthesized. Reactions of the acid with thionyl chloride at 50-60{degrees} for several days followed by a one-hour reflux produced a white solid. It was filtered, washed with hexane and dried in a vacuum dessicator over KOH. The powder melted at 104-106{degrees}. After it is recrystallized, it will be submitted for elemental analyses. Should it prove to be the diacid chloride, it will be reacted with DINOL and REX-18.

The Effect of Soil Parameters on Earth Penetration of Projectiles

Description: The purpose of this study can be divided into the three following parts: 1) to present complete sets of data obtained for projectile penetration into soil targets of precisely known properties, and to describe how to build and test these targets; 2) to present a numerical method of data analysis for empirically determining the force on a projectile, during penetration; and 3) to demonstrate how physical soil parameters, as well as impact velocity and a projectile property influence penetration.
