Creep and Drying Shrinkage of Lightweight and Normal-Weight Concretes

Description: From Scope of Investigation: "The work reported here is part of a continuing program concerning the long-term volume changes in concretes made from lightweight and normal-weight aggregates. The creep, drying-shrinkage, and strength data presented are for concretes made with 24 expanded shale lightweight aggregates and 5 natural, normal-weight aggregates. These aggregates were from widely separated geographical locations and were to be representative samples of aggregates being used in the production of structural concretes."

Properties of High-Temperature Ceramics and Cermets: Elasticity and Density at Room Temperature

Description: From Introduction: "The present paper contains detailed descriptions of the methods used in calculating both the elastic constants and the statistical parameters. These detailed descriptions have been included for two reasons: (1) To leave no doubt as to the exact procedure, and (2) to act as a guide to other workers who might wish to make similar determinations."

Testing of Containment Capabilities of Reinforced Concrete-Shielded Enclosures

Description: From Summary: "The strains in the walls and ceiling of Cell No. 5 were recorded with 39 SR-4 strain gages strategically placed on reinforcing steel. Table I summarizes the comparative results without including correction for stress concentrations. The general pattern of cell behavior at 10 psig, as summarized in Table I, is shown in Figs. 10, 11, 12."

Two-Phase Heat Transfer With Gas Injection Through A Porous Boundary Surface

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this study is to investigate some of the hydrodyamic aspects of two-phase heat transfer in the lower quality range. The results of this study should contribute to a better and more thorough understanding of the processes and mechanisms affecting two-phase heat transfer, and in this way help in improving its prediction."

Preliminary Design of a Basic Radiation Effects Reactor (BRER)

Description: From Introduction: "Information has been accumulated about the property changes produced, but there are essentially no reliable quantitative data correlating property changes with the magnitude and energy distribution of the neutron fluxes responsible for the changes. The design of the Basic Radiation Effects Reactor (BRER) presented herein stems from the two main requirements: 1. a fairly high-level, high-energy neutron flux with minimal thermal neutron and gamma-ray background is desired; 2. the peak of the neutron-energy spectrum should be variable within the approximate range from 10 to 1000 kev."
