Pulse Amplifiers Using Transistor Circuits

Description: From Introduction: "The high frequency response remains important even when pulse shaping is introduced. Pulse shaping is used to improve the time resolution of the system, to minimize overload distortion, or to facilitate the action of discriminating and recording circuits. The amplifier response may be optimized by such shaping, but in general the overall characteristics will be fixed by the particular detector system."

Roll Cladding Uranium-Zirconium and Uranium-Zirconium-Niobium Alloys with Zircaloy-2 for Plate-Type Fuel Elements

Description: From Abstract: "Investigations were made of alternate methods of bonding fuel shapes and the use of alternate core alloys in flat plates. Alternations and additions were made to development facilities needed to fabricate roll-clad plates for the EBWR core. Pilot production of EWBR-type plates proved that the plate cladding process could be adapted to production facilities."

Report #27: Development of Photomultiplier Tubes

Description: From Development of Improved Electron Optics For the 16 Inch Multiplier Phototube: "In order to derive a more efficient electrostatic optical system to be used in conjunction with a large area, 16 inch diameter multiplier phototube the following analysis has been made. This analysis is based on a similar optical system which is to be used in the design of a 16 inch diameter image convertor. At the end on the minifier, we reached the conclusion that the relaxation method constituted the best approach to the solution of the boundary value potential problem inside an axisymmetrical image convertor."

Description: Supplementary report from the U.S. Bureau of Mines regarding the results of a survey of the natural gas (helium) resources available in the United States. From the summary: "Certain source data and results of analysis pertinent to 1,575 gas samples, which have been obtained from 26 States, Alaska, and Canada (only a few from the latter 2 regions) and analyzed in connection with the helium-survey program of the Bureau of Mines, are presented in tabular form. This publication is supplementary to Bulletin 486 of the Bureau of Mines. Samples analyzed from late 1947 to around May 1956 are included in this bulletin and augment the samples reported in Bulletin 486" (p. 1).

Some Effects of Flow Spoilers and of Aerodynamic Balance on the Oscillating Hinge Moments for a Swept Fin-Rudder Combination in a Transonic Wind Tunnel

Description: Memorandum presenting force-oscillation tests made in the 8-foot transonic pressure tunnel to investigate some effects of an overhang-type aerodynamic balance and of a flow spoiler on the dynamic hinge-moment characteristics of a full-span flap-type rudder on a 5-percent-thick, swept vertical fin of low aspect ratio. Test results how that the aerodynamic damping moment on the plain rudder becomes unstable near a Mach number of 0.975 and remains unstable to the maximum speed of the tests.
