Research on Thermoelectric Heat Pumps

Description: From Results: "Prior to stating results achieved, let us first discuss the measurements we were able to make, and how these measurements might--or might not--be indicative of the objective we strove to reach. Tables I and II, and related Figs. 11 and 12, show the best results obtained. Final Columns of Tables I and II are believed to show, at least to a degree, how good or how poor our best sputtered films turned out to be, compared with top-quality Peliter semiconductor materials."

Demineralization by Transport Depletion

Description: Report concerning the demineralization of water via the transport depletion process, which is a variation of electrodialysis that uses just one ion-exchange membrane. The first portion of the report covers a year of studying the transport depletion method, while the second part includes details regarding the experiments, equipment, and complications in greater detail.

A Proposal for the Mc2 Isochronous Cyclotron: A General Purpose High-Intensity 810-MeV Proton Accelerator

Description: Abstract: "The Oak Ridge National Laboratory proposes to build an isochronous eight-sector proton cyclotron to provide an extracted beam in excess of 100 A at 810 MeV. The primary proton beam and the secondary meson and neutron beams will be used to investigate nuclear structure, and the interactions between elementary particles. Biomedical and Space-oriented research programs are also planned. Shielded research areas and an extensive beam transport and analysis system are provided. Theoretical… more

INSTRUMENT FOR DETERMINING CRUSHING STRENGTH OF PARTICLES

Description: An instrument for crushing-strength determinations of uncoated and pyrolytic-carbon-coated fuel particles (50 to 500 mu in diameter) was developed to relate the crushing strength of the particles to their fabricability. The instrument consists of a loading mechanism, load cell, and a power supply-readout unit. The information that can be obtained by statistical methods of the data analysis is illustrated by results on two batches of fuel particles. (auth)

A Sensitive Radiation Monitor for a Large Laboratory Area

Description: An instrument has been built to survey releases of radioactivity within the 22-acre enclosure of the Savannah River Laboratory. The device consists of a 2-in.diameter x 2-in. sodium iodide scintillation crystal with associated detector counting and recording circuits which provide a permanent record of radioactivity movements within the Laboratory area. The monitor detects signals of 6.9 mu r/hr from a 0.48-curie cobalt-60 source located 265 ft away. (auth)

THE SLUG-ANNULAR FLOW REGIME TRANSITION AT ELEVATED PRESSURE

Description: The annular slug flow regime has been investigated in vertical upflow without heating through the use of an electrical conductivity probe. The Teflon cladding and seals of the probe were found to work to at least 488 deg F. When the inlet velocity was sufficientiy high, the quality at transition was found to be a constant for each pressure going from 8.6% at215 psia to 17.6% at 615 psia. No fully developed bubbly flow was observed. (auth)

TECHNIQUES FOR ANALYZING NONSTATIONARY VIBRATION DATA

Description: Methods are described and discussed, from a general viewpoint, for analyzing data on non-stationary vibrations. The analysis must take into account both frequency and time as variables, so the methods used are complex and voluminous. The case is also considered in which the vibrations are non- stationary but repetitive. The application of the methods discussed in analysis of missile-vibration problems is outlined. (T.F.H.)
