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."

In-Pile Loop Corrosion Experiments with Uranyl Sulfate Solutions at 235 and 250 C

Description: Report presenting in-pile loop experiments DD, EE, FF, GG, L-412, L-413, and L-418, which were seven of a series designed to test the radiation corrosion of zirconium, titanium, and stainless steel alloys in solutions under various conditions of radiation intensity, temperature, solution composition, and velocity of flow. Steel specimens exposed in the loop cores showed increases in corrosive attack over that expected out-of-radiation.

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).

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."
