Flux Distributions and Critical k [infinity] Values for Cylindrical Reactors Simulation the MTR

Description: From summary: "In order to estimate the effect of placing bismuth and thorium layers near the MTR core, radial flux distributions and k[infinity] values were calculated for cylindrical reactors having cylindrical layers of these materials of the same height as the core and beryllium reflector and placed either next to the core or embedded in the beryllium reflector."

A Precise Potentiometric Titration Method for the Determination of Uranium

Description: Abstract: "A precise potentiometric method for the determination of uranium in essentially pure uranium oxides is described. Ten gram samples of oxides are reduced in a Jones reductor and titrated potentiometrically to U+4, using platinum and tungsten electrodes. A weighed amount of solid Bureau of Standards potassium dichromate is then used to oxidize at least 99 percent of the uranous ion, and the oxidation is completed by titration with 0.01 N potassium dichromate using calomel and platinum electrodes. This method, which is based on a primary chemical standard, has a precision of +/- 0.015% on a single determination at the 95 percent confidence interval."
