Delayed Failure Hydrogen Embrittlement of Zirconium: Quarterly Report Number 2, December 1961 - March 1962

Description: Abstract: "The purpose of this investigation is to determine the extent to which zirconium and zirconium alloys exhibit delayed failure (static fatigue) as caused by a combination of absorbed hydrogen and applied stress. Both notched and unnotched specimens of unalloyed zirconium and Zircaloy-2 have been hydrogenated to 200 ppm by means of a modified Sieverts apparatus; specimens were evaluated at room temperature. Thus far, no time-dependent fracture has been observed which can be attributed to the delayed failure phenomenon; it appears that these materials are relatively insensitive to static fatigue. The effects of grain size, temperature, cold deformation, and superheated water and steam corrosion on susceptibility to delayed failure are being determined."

Preliminary Studies of Scavenging Systems Related to Radioactive Fallout : Summary Report, May 1, 1960 to March 31, 1961

Description: Abstract: "Experimental investigation of aerosol particle capture by evaporating and condensing water drops has shown that capture is a function of the rate of water drop growth and aerosol particle diameter. Capture was found to be proportional to the rate of water vapor condensation and inversely proportional to aerosol particle diameter. The influence of water vapor gradient and particle size on aerosol particle capture during evaporation is insignificant. The experimental results are explained on the basis of particle penetration through the boundary layer of a water drop. An analysis of previous research on radioactivity of dry particulate matter in an urban atmosphere is included."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles Progress Report: October-December 1960

Description: From introduction: "This study is concerned with the basic variables that affect the electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols in the submicron range, especially below 0.1 micron. The variables of interest are particle size, concentration, composition, dielectric constant, shape, and initial charge as they relate to rate of charging and therefore to the point of deposition in the classifier."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, December 15, 1960 to February 15, 1961

Description: Introduction: "This program is a study of the basic variables that affects electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols of submicron size, especially below 0.1 micron. The variables of concern are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, and initial charge. During this period optimum charger design was studied. The results will serve as a basis for a systematic study of particle charging. A number of improvements were incorporated into the classifier flow system and electrical circuits. The technique for photographing deposits in the electron microscope was also improved, and sample photographs are included."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, April 15 to June 15, 1961

Description: Abstract: "This program is a study of the basic variables that affect electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols of submicron size,especially below 0.1[mu]. The variables of interest are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, and initial charge. During this period research was concerned with classifying particles as small as 0.01[mu]. This research included work on an aerosol generator for monodispersed 0.015-[mu] gold particles. The performance of the charger was further improved by studying its basic electrical characteristics. Tests with the electrostatic classifier showed very clearly the interference due to the stabilizer material associated with polystyrene latex suspensions. These suspensions are used to produce monodispersed aerosols for calibration."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, February 1 to March 31, 1962

Description: Introduction: "This project is a study of eletrostatic classification of submicron aerosols with emphasis on particles below 0.1[mu]. Previous work has shown that classification of particles between 0.1 to 1.0[mu] is feasible by this process. Further improvements along this line include the elimination of interference from initial aerosol charge and increase in sampling rate. The effect of heavy deposits on collection have to be established. More information is desired on the charging regime below 0.1[mu]. Also the overlap of the smallest particles with the larger ones has to be eliminated. It is also of interest to study the possibility of measuring the current due to the precipitating particles. This would make it possible to automate the device. During this period project work was initiated again. There was some delay in finalizing the contract and the laboratory work was not started until early in March."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, June 1 to August 1, 1962

Description: Introduction: "This project is a study of electrostatic classification of submicron aerosols, with emphasis on particles smaller than 0.1 micron. The overlap of the smallest particles with the larger ones is of principal concern. Also, a faster sampling rate is desired, i.e., heavier deposits in a shorter time are necessary. During the period covered by this report, work was concerned with studies of charging by corona and diffusion, neutralization of initial charge, and classification of various types if aerosols."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, August 1 to October 1, 1962

Description: Introduction: "This study is concerned with the classification of submicron aerosols by electrostatic means. The controlled charging of the particles without undue aerosol losses is of principal interest. We are investigating means of eliminating the interference due to the deposition of small and large particles in the same area. The sampler is to be developed to classify atmospheric dust particles at a rate approaching 1 cfm. During the period covered by this report, work was concerned with the charger and with bringing the high-volume classifier into routing operation. Further tests were made on the classification of atmospheric dust."
