Radiation hazards

Description: This report is a discussion between Dr, Robert Stone of Knoxville, Tennessee and Dr. W.D. Norwood, the Medical Superintendent at HAPO, concerning the health hazards involved from working at HAPO and the maximum exposure to gamma radiation which a worker could be exposed to without receiving adverse irreparable damage.

Cooling water requirements in 212 buildings

Description: This document provides plots of expected rates of heat evolution rates of heat evolution from irradiated metal which may be useful in estimating the cooling water flow required in the the 212 buildings. A comparison of three sources of data found in the Project Handbook is provided. The CN 526 calculations agree very well with the estimates of 16, 32 and 64 days decay periods. CN 526 information was used for calculating the heat evolution rates shown in the following figures, since the data does not cover decay periods under 16 days, and does not include the 93{sup 239} contribution. The expected BTU/Min.(Ton) heat liberation rate vs. cooling time in days for through operating periods is shown. The operating level is taken as 2000 KW/Ton; the BTU/Min.(Ton) liberated may be scaled to higher or lower operating levels by arithmetic ratio. A similar curve in which the cooling water required (GPM/Ton) is substituted for BTU/Min.(Ton) is provided. The metric ton and a water temperature rise of 25{degree}C (45{degree}F) are assumed. The product content of the metal has been substituted for operating level in another plot. The rate of heat evolution is plotted against decay period for various operating times. A base product content of 100 grams/ton was chosen, and the BTU/Min.(Ton) can be scaled to metal of higher or lower product content by arithmetic ratio. A similar plot with the ordinate GPM/Ton instead of BTU/Min.(Ton) is provided. 5 figs.

An Investigation of the Mutual Interference Effects of a Tail-Surface: Stern Propeller Installation on a Model Simulating the Douglas XB-42 Empennage

Description: Report discussing the mutual interference effects of tail surfaces and a stern propeller on a model of the XB-42.The main focus was to determine the effect of tail surface-propeller spacing upon the periodic tail surface loading coincident with propeller blade passage.

Charts for the Determination of Wing Torsional Stiffness Required for Specified Rolling Characteristics or Aileron Reversal Speed

Description: From Summary :"A series of charts are presented by which the wing torsional stiffness required to meet a given standard of rolling effectiveness may be quickly determined. The charts may also be used to obtain quickly the aileron reversal speed and the variation of the loss in rolling effectiveness with airspeed. The charts apply to linearly tapered wings and elliptical wings of tubular-shell construction having various aspect ratios with aileron span and location of ailerons as variables. In the derivation of the charts, induced lift effects have been taken into account and the form of the wing-torsional-stiffness curve has been assumed."
