Precise Vapor Pressure Measurement At High Temperature

Description: "An apparatus using a silica Bourdon gage is described for the measurement of vapor pressures or dissociation pressures with an accuracy of 0.1 mm and 0.1 deg C up to maximum pressures of atmospheric or beyond and maximum temperatures of 650 to 1250 deg C. The method is applicable to corrosive substances, to substances whose vapor pressure is sensitive to slight changes in composition, and to substances difficult to purify of volatile contaminants which affect the vapor pressure."

The Design and Uses of High Flux Research and Test Reactors

Description: The need for thermal and fast neutron fluxes in the range of 1 to 5 x l0/ sup 15/ neutrons/cm/sup 2/(sec) for the production of heavy elements such as Cf/ sup 252/ and other special isotopes and for improving the quality of beam experiments, reactor materials testing work, and solid state research has led to plans for the construction of three ultra high flux research reactors. The designs of these and other high flux research reactors are based on the general technology of enriched tank-type r… more

Finite Amplitude Stress Waves in Rocks

Description: Production of new surface area by fracturing of rock behind an explosive-initiated high amplitude wave is probably an important mechanism for energy absorption in the region near n explosion in rock. Explosive-initiated high amplitude pulses in cylinders of three different rocks and two concretes were studied to determine the pulse amplitude need to damage the cylinders. An average high amplitude wave velocity of half the elastic wave velocity was observed in a porous limestone. Elastic theory … more

The Direct Reading Height Gage and its Applications to Inspection Work : Model 1 and Model 2

Description: The direct reading height gauge is a new and fast operating instrument designed primarily for checking hole patterns, but it can also be used for a number of other purposes as well. This report gives a brief review of what the gauge is, what it will do, and how it is operated. Speed and the elimination of most of the sources of error are its chief attributes.

A Discussion on the Layout of Elements of a Control Panel

Description: This memorandum is an outline of the principles and methods employed by 5100 Human Engineering Personnel in consultation on test equipment panel layout. The process of control panel layout is partially formalized with particular emphasis on test equipment panels. An experimental method is proposed for selecting an optimum panel layout. The essential role of experimentation is pointed out. The optimal layout for a nonrepetitive procedure is deduced and generalized to give methods of layout solut… more

The Effect of Crystallite Size on the Bulk Density and Strength Properties of Uranium Dioxide Specimens

Description: Fused uranium dioxide was separated into fractions of varying particle size by air separation. Specimens of the nominal size of 1/8 by 1/4 by 1½ in. were formed by hydrostatic pressing, firing, and lapping. Specimens prepared from the 0 to 5 μ fraction were the strongest and most dense. The room-temperature density was about 92% of theoretical and the room-temperature flexural strength was about 12,000 1b. per sq. in. When tested at 1000°C., the strength was about 18,000 1b. per sq. in. The fle… more

Intermediary Metabolism of the Photosynthetic Bacteria. Final Report

Description: The primary purpose of these researches was to clarify the various functions of organic substrates in bacterial photosynthesis. The following aspects were investigated; (1) metabolic pathways under photosynthetic and oxidative conditions, (2) energy transfers occurring during the metabolism in cell free extracts, and (3) the relationship between photosynthetic rate and light intensity for selected organic substrates. The results of these investigations were summarized in a paper entitled "The A… more

Occurrence of Technetium in Nature : Final Report for the Period November 1, 1954 to August 31, 1955

Description: Twelve neutron activation analyses for naturally occurring technetium-98 were performed. Positive results were obtained in ten cases. Precautions were taken to avoid interference by molybdenum and technetium-99. the cross section for the reaction [formula] as found to be equal to 4 +- 2 mb for the neutron spectrum of the vertical thimbles of the Argonne CP-5 reactor. The chemical state of molybdenum (VI) in basic solution was studied by an anion-exchange technique. Evidence was obtained for the… more

Coupled Transmission Lines

Description: In a discussion about design of cyclotron resonators, the suggestion has been made that a wide range variable-frequency system might be constructed with two coupled resonant circuits. It also would present the possibility of tuning without the switching of high-current contacts, a troublesome item now commonly used for cyclotrons. One of the circuits would be the dee and its stem which might, or might not, be tuned. The second circuit could be located out of the magnet gap in a region where mo… more

Eurochemic Assistance: Monthly Progress Report for Chemical Development Section B, January, 1959 (Sections 1.0, except 1.42, and 2.0)

Description: In order to make rational predictions of the operating characteristics of uranium anion exchange contactors, an understanding of the mechanism and kinetics of the exchange is necessary. Toward this objective an effort is being made to determine the equilibrium sorption isotherms and rates of sorption of uranium on the anion exchange resin Dovex 21K.
