Waukegan Station plume

Description: In a previous report on effects of thermal discharges from power plants into the Great Lakes, we stressed the need for a statistical analysis of the spatial and temporal pattern of the thermal plume. The plume pattern is recognized as stochastic in nature and requires statistical analysis. A single realization of the Waukegan Station plume is studied with emphasis on its information content. Areas between isotherms at various depths are computed together with volumes of water in given temperature ranges above ambient; these measurements indicate the extent of the various parts of the plume together with the heat content of each part.

Historical record and final status report of K Reactor Zircaloy hydride problem

Description: This document is intended to serve both as an historical record and final status report concerning the K Reactor hydriding problem which has been under study since its discovery in 1965. If neither of the K reactors are restarted, this will serve as an historical record which might be of some use to those using Zircaloy components in either the power reactor or chemical industries. (Its classification would limit such use.) If either of the K`s are reactivated, hydriding will again become an active subject since its deleterious effects on the tubes will have a significant bearing on future reactor operations. No attempt will be made to review or report on all work done on this problem but a complete list of references is appended. It is assumed that copies, or microfilms, of these references will be available for some time to come.
