Aircraft Reactor Test Hazards Summary Report

Description: The successful completion of a program of experiments, including the Aircraft Reactor Experiment (ARE), has demonstrated the high probability of producing militarily useful aircraft nuclear power plants employing reflector-moderated circulating-fuel reactors. Consequently, and accelerated program culminating in operation of the Aircraft Reactor Test (ART) is under way. In order to adhere to the compressed schedule of the accelerated program, it is essential that the Atomic Energy Commission approve the 7500 Area in Oak Ridge as the test site by February15, 1955. This report summarizes the hazards associated with operating the contained 60-Mv reactor of the ART at the proposed Oak Ridge test site.

Silicon Nitride As A High-Temperature Radome Material

Description: LRL has the responsibility of demonstrating the feasibility of a reactor for use as a power plant for a low-altitude, high-Mach-number missile. This reactor is literally a very high power air heater which must work at temperatures in excess of 2000' F. The reactor is exposed to high loads so one of the primary problems is providing high temperature structure. Considerable effort has been devoted to developing ceramic structural elements. One of the materials considered for this purpose is silicon nitride. In ceramic structural elements operating over large temperature ranges, a major problem is coping with thermal stress. In this respect there is a similarity with the radome problem. The work on silicon nitride at LRL consisted of limited fabrication studies (principally for familiarization), measurement of properties of interest to the application, and funding of fabrication scale-up efforts.

Wave Functions for Antishielding Factors of Ions and for the Electronic Polarisabilities of the Alkali Atoms

Description: The purpose if this paper is to present tables of perturbed wave functions which have been obtained in three recent investigations: (1) wave functions v1'(nℓ→ℓ') which pertains to the perturbation of the d electrons of various ions as a result of the potential due to a nuclear quadrupole moment Q3 (2) wave functions v1',H(nℓ→ℓ) which represent the antishielding of the d electrons for a possible nuclear hexadecapole moment H; (3) wave functions u2'(ns→p) which pertain to the dipole perturbation of the valence (ns) electrons of the alkali atoms. Throughout this paper, the notation is the same as in a previous report in which a similar tabulation of perturbed wave function was made.

On the Boundary Condition Between Two Multiplying Media

Description: The transition region between two parts of a pile which have different compositions is investigated. In the case where the moderator is the same in both parts of the pile, it is found that the diffusion constant times thermal neutron density plus diffusion constant times fast neutron density satisfied the use pile equations everywhere, right to the boundary. More complicated formulae apply in a more general case.

Spinning of Columbium & Columbium 1%- Zirconium Tubing

Description: The following objectives were planned for this project. (1) Development of spinning data necessary for spinning Columbium and Columbium-1% Zirconium tubing from ingot, forged or welded tube blanks. (2) Determine mechanical & metallurgical properties of spun Columbium and Columbium-1% Zirconium tubing. (3) Determine dimensional and tolerance limits possible to attain on spun Columbium and Columbium-1% Zirconium tubing based on our present equipment, tooling limitations, and the spinning tests performed for objective No. 1.

Weldability of Hayes Alloy #25

Description: Technical report describing the process to determine the fusion welding characteristics of Haynes Alloy #25 as applied to TLJ-100530, Corrosion Loops. Hayes Stellite Alloy #25 is a cobalt-base alloy for corrosion resistant high temperature applications. This material, when welded by the inert gas shielded tungsten arc method, produces sound ductile joints. Material thicknesses greater than 12 gauge require standard joint preparations, a V joint being preferred up to 1/4 inch and a U joint for greater thicknesses. Welding heat should be kept to a minimum followed by fast cooling. The molten metal is very fluid and may present difficulties when position welding.

The U + 4 - U02 ++ Couple in H2SO , and the U + S - u + 4 Couple in HCl

Description: Technical report: Measurements have been made on the equilibrium between Cu, Cu2+, U4+, and UO22+ in H2SO4 in an attempt to establish the value of the U4+ - UO22+ couple potential. The value of the formal potential for the U3+ - U4+ couple in 1N HCl at 0 degrees C was determined to be + 0.65 v.

Examination of Donut on Rupture Slug No. 14

Description: Pursuant to Dr. Kingdon's request for specific information concerning the donut pictured on pages 26-29 of WAPD-64, a close examination of this defect on Failure No. 14 was made. The slug was examined through 10 inches of Pb-glass and photographs were made. A clay impression of the surface area containing the donut was obtained, and using this impression, an Armstrong's Adhesive replica of this can wall surface area was cast.

Sid Magnet Model Test Results

Description: From introduction: "These data were taken on a 1/16th scale model of the magnet shown on sketch no. FS-2. The object of these measurements was to get information that would determine the final design of the full scale magnet. The one main point to be settled was whether a tapered or a cylindrical pole piece would give the largest value of Hρ for a given power input into the magnet (the cylindrical pole piece is shown in dotted lines in sketch FS-2)."

The Mass Spectra of Some Volatile Hydrides

Description: From abstract: "The hydrides of group VB an VB elements, except CH4 and NH3, have been prepared and, except for PbH4 and BiH3, their mass spectra studied. Fragmentation patterns and appearance potentials of the positive ions from these hydrides are reported. The ions have been tested for excess kinetic energy and this energy was found to be negligible. The average M-H bond energies and the ΔHf° obtained from appearance potential data agree well with values obtained by other methods. Evidence is cited for the existence of distibine."

The Application of Wax Laps to Vibratory Polishers

Description: From introduction: "In this paper the adaptation of the wax lab surface vibratory polisher is described. The wax lap requires little maintenance during the life of the lap. It is not necessary to remove any of the holding devices on the bowl to clean and recondition the lap. The bowl is merely washed out, recharged and placed in operation. The wax lap will not wrinkle or tear, nor is it necessary to change it each day such as the silk or nylon cloths."
