A Radio-Frequency Power Delivery System: Procedures for Error Analysis and Self-Calibration

Description: Abstract: An expression is developed for net power delivered to a load in terms of the indicated forward and reflected power and the system S-parameters and reflection coefficients. The dual directional coupler is treated as nonideal with power reflections assumed between all ports. The system itself is used to evaluate the major S-parameter terms in net power computation, and uncertainty in the computed power is derived from origins in the power meter readings and incompletely known S-parameters.

The Fabrication of Subassemblies for the Supercritical-Water Reactor

Description: In studies of the fabrication of fuel subassemblies for the supercritical-water reactor, the limited ductility of stainless steel-UO₂ fuel sheet made the fabrication of corrugated-flat-plate-type subassemblies impractical. A fabricable MTR-type assembly, 5/8 in. square and 30 in. long, was developed. Methods for edge cladding fuel sheet were developed and a brazing alloy, GE-75, was found to be corrosion resistant in supercritical water.

Survey of Refractory Uranium Compounds

Description: Abstract: Chemical and physical data on twenty binary uranium compounds that may prove suitable for refractory nuclear fuels were assembled. The compounds were those with aluminum, boron, carbon, iron, nickel, nitrogen, silicon, or sulfur. Too little is known at this time about the compounds to evaluate any of them for fuel. The program is being extended in an effort to provide the needed data.

Mammalian Radiation Genetics

Description: "This symposium is concerned with the basic aspects of radiation effects. When we turn to the genetic effects of radiation in mammals, there are so few aspects on which there is any information that the problem of sorting out the fundamental findings has hardly arisen. In this paper it will, therefore, be possible to survey most of what is known and pass on to a consideration of what is needed next. Since one of the purposes of this symposium is an interchange of views between investigators in different fields, an attempt will be made to avoid technical details. Among the practical needs in mammalian radiation genetics is a pressing one for more data on which to base estimates of the genetic hazards of radiation in man. The present paper will be concerned largely with this problem. Our own work is directed primarily in this direction, our objective being to uncover some of the basic facts in at least one mammal-the mouse. Before discussing the experimental work, however, it seems desirable to consider some of the general features of the genetic hazard of radiation."

Organo-Phosphorous Compounds for Solvent Extraction

Description: From summary: "The influence of the structure of phosphate esters on the distribution coefficient of uranium between solutions of these esters in carbon tetrachloride and aqueous nitrate solutions has been studied. Esters of secondary alcohols showed higher distribution coefficients than primary alcohols. Phenyl esters extracted less uranium than alkyl esters, and the presence of other negative groups also resulted in less extraction. Compounds containing carbon to phosphorus bonds gave higher distribution coefficients than the corresponding esters, and the distribution coefficients increased with the number of such carbon to phosphorus bonds. Tributyl phosphine oxide (with three carbon to phosphorus bonds) showed high distribution coefficients with many salts, including uranyl nitrate, uranyl sulfate, uranyl chloride, thorium nitrate, plutonium (IV) nitrate and some of the fission products in nitrate solution. It is planned to study these and similar compounds further."

Heat Transfer and Pressure Loss in Tube Bundles for High Performance Heat Exchangers and Fuel Elements

Description: From introduction: "The tube arrangement covered in this report was proposed in June, 1950, as a means of halving the weight and volume required for the heat exchanger. Ideally, the pressure drop across this arrangement should be little more than that required to overcome the skin friction on the tube surfaces. If the pressure drop across the tube spacers and in the cross-flow regions can be kept low, this ideal can be approached. much of the test work covered in this report was devoted to this phase of the problem."

Laboratory Development of the MTR-RaLa Process for the Production of Barium140

Description: From abstract: "This report presents the laboratory development of the MTR-RaLa Process for the production of barium140 from Materials Testing Reactor assemblies." The laboratory studied four possible chemical schemes with the final process being chosen "on the basis of chemical yield and purity of product, ease of recovery of uranium235, simplicty of equipment, and overall time required for processing" (from introduction).

Energetic Neutral Injection into Thermonuclear Machines

Description: Abstract: "A scheme is discussed in which D+ ions would be accelerated to about 100 kev in a conventional accelerator, then be sent through a gas target frmo which about half the ions would emerge neutral with very little scattering or energy loss; the neutral beam would then cross into a magnetic field and part of the atoms would be ionized and trapped by colliding with the already trapped ions. The smallest mirror machine with a central field of 30-40 kilogauss, 2;1 mirror ratio and β = 01 to 0.5 that would trap most of the neutral beam in the steady state, would be about a meter in diameter and require the order of hundreds of amperes of D+ ions into the neutralizer. The smallest stellerator with a field of 30 kilogauss and β = 0.1 that would trap most of the neutral beam would be about a meter long and require about 10 amperes of D+ ions. A preliminary mirror machine experiment that might be done using the 1/2-ampere, 100-kev D+ beam from the UCRL spare MTA injector is discussed. A method of starting these machine is discussed."

Primary Sedimentary Trend Indicators as Applied to Ore Finding in the Carrizo Mountains, Arizona and New Mexico

Description: Abstract: Field and laboratory study of primary sedimentary features of the Salt Wash sandstone was undertaken to learn if these structures can be of use in finding hidden deposits of ore and also if they have influenced the localization of either individual ore deposits or larger mineralized districts.

Drilling in the Flatirons Locality, Monument Valley, Arizona

Description: From introduction: A subsurface exploration program was undertaken to investigate the concentration of uranium and vanadium in or near the base of the Shinarump member of the Chinle formation in the Flatirons locality, and to develop criteria whereby adjacent unexplored areas could be evaluated as to potential production capacity from study of geological and mineralogical features at the host rook outcrop. An earlier study of the area by C. G. Evensen of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission had shown that geological conditions favorable to the accumulation of commercial uranium deposits were present in the Flatirons area.

Geological Investigation of Mexican Cry Mesa, Lukachukai District, Arizona with Diamond Drilling Recommendations

Description: Abstract: The Salt Wash member of the Jurassic Morrison formation of Mexican Cry Mesa, Lukachukai District, Arizona, was examined to determine size, grade, and distribution of contained carnotite deposits and the possibilities of developing reserves by exploratory drilling. Only three occurrences of carnotite-bearing sandstone were found in 17 miles of rim outcrop. Limited drilling is recommended in the vicinity of these exposures.
