Description: Experimental results are presented of pile oscillator measurements of cross sections of irradiated samples of seventeen elements. Mass spectrometer analysis of some samples was performed. Quantitative theory-experiment correlation yielded thermal absorption cross section information and also established the reliability of control rod lifetime calculations for each element investigated. Application of the results to calculation of the nuclear lifetime of reactor control rods is discussed. (auth)
