Geophysical Seismic Evaluation Study at Hanford

Description: From introduction: "In June, 1963, a geophysical research program was conducted at Hanford to determine the feasibility and desirability of using seismic methods in geohydrologic studies. Detection and delineation were desired of seven different geological features that in some sites affect the movement of liquid radioactive wastes discharged to the ground."

Engineering Development of Fluid-Bed Fluoride Volatility Processes: Part 5. Description of a Pilot-Scale Facility for Uranium Dioxide-Plutonium Dioxide Processing Studies

Description: Report describing a pilot plant constructed at Argonne National Laboratory for studying two major process steps for the recovery of uranium and plutonium from spent nuclear fuels of power reactors. A major objective is the demonstration of optimum process conditions for the two steps for synthetic reactor fuel compositions, including those containing mixtures of inactive fission products.

Evaluation of Beta Radiation as a Hydrogenation Catalyst: Interim Technical Status Report for the Period March 1, 1962 to October 31, 1963

Description: From abstract: The concept of using high intensity beta radiation from an isotopic source, Sr-90, inside a high temperature, high pressure chemical reactor has been developed for potential radiation chemical processes. Distinct advantages include high utilizable intensity from a relatively small source with a minimum of shielding against external radiation.

UC Fuel Element Design and Fabrication

Description: Abstract: Uranium monocarbide shows considerable potential for use as a fuel in high temperature, high power density, nuclear power reactors. As Atomics International is proposing its use in sodium graphite type reactors, it was necessary to develop a process for fabricaing sodium bonded uranium carbide fuel elements.
