The Grüneisen Parameter for an Einstein Solid and Under Finite Strain

Description: The Grüneisen constant, as evaluated from the equation of state, is obtained for an Einstein solid. the presence of a state of finite hydrostatic pressure is taken into account explicitly by means of Murnaghan's theory of finite strain, to obtain the Grüneisen parameter's on the Debye and Einstein models. Results are identical in the two cases with the corresponding values obtained without use of the formal theory of finite strain.

Sizes of U. S. Steam- Electric Plants

Description: At the present time, plants in the 100-500Mv size range are more numerous and carry the greatest portion (over 50%) of the total steam-electric plant load in the U.S. utilities industry. The contribution of plants of over 1,000-Mv capacity is increasing more rapidly than any other size clarification and at present represents about 10% of the total capacity. By 1962 the TVA will have six plants with capacities of over 1,000-Mv. The largest steam-electric plant in the U.S. is the TVA plant at Kin… more

The Development of a Fluidized Bed Reactor for the Fluorox Process: Unit operations Monthly Status Reports for the Period November, 1958, Through May, 1959

Description: Results of four experiemental runs in the Fluorox fluidized bed reactor system are reported. The engineering feasibility of UF6 production from UF4 by use of dry air of O2, 2UF4 + O2 = UF6 + UO2F2, in an Inconel fluidized bed reactor at 800-850°C was demonstrated in two experimental tests in which greater than 90% of the theoretical amount of UF6 was collected or measured. Two runs made with crude UF4 (produced from unpurified mill concentrate) as the feed material, showed that UF6 could be pro… more

Determination of Trivalent Uranium in Fluoride Salt Mixtures by the Modified Hydrogen Evolution Method

Description: The hydrogen evolution method for the determination of uranium trifluoride which was developed by Manning, Miller and Rowan has been used for the determination of trivalent uranium in this laboratory for the past three years. The method has been applied to many different sample types supposedly pure UF3, mixtures of UF3 and UF4 and the large variety of mixtures of fluoride salts that have been investigated as possible nuclear fuels. These mixtures contained alkali metal, beryllium and zirconium… more

Interim Evaluation of the Fluorox Process for UF4 and UF6 Manufacture

Description: The conversion of UNH to UF4 and UF6, utilizing moving-bed techniques, is being studied; sufficient progress has been made that an evaluation of the process is warranted. The procedures under study, the Fluorox Process, have three major advantages: (1) substitution of HF for high-cost fluorine, (2) considerable reduction in HF requirements, and (3) marked reduction in plant-size and mechanical complexity.

The Combination of Hydrogen and Oxygen in Platinum Catalyzed Flow Reactions

Description: An extension of the concepts advanced by Langmuir regarding the nature of the platinum catalyzed oxidation of hydrogen and the application of the resulting theory to the experimental data observed by Ranschoff and Spiewak for an HRE type recombiner indicates that their data are corrected by the dimensionless equation (see report) equally well, with a mean deviation of 3.8 percent. This expression is recommended as a basis for the design of catalytic recombiners. The catalytic combinations is pi… more

Magnetic Measurement of AGS Experimental Magnets

Description: This is a preliminary report on the magnetic measurements taken to date on the AGS experimental magnets. It mainly summarizes the results which were necessary for the setting up of the proton separated beam in August 1961. A few curves on information obtained since then are included. When the study is finished, a complete report on all phases of the work, including the methods used, will be forthcoming.

Pilot Plant Fluorination of Uranium Fuel Elements by Bromine Trifluoride

Description: The so-called Fluoride Volatility Processes refer to several proposed non-aqueous methods of processing irradiated fuel elements. In each of these methods, the uranium is fluorinated to uranium hexafluoride and then decontaminated by distillation. One of the methods, involving direct fluorination of the uranium by bromine trifluoride, has been under investigation at BNL since 1950; subsequently a pilot plant was built to study this step of the process. The objectives of the program were to inve… more

Trough-Time Dissolver

Description: Designing a dissolver safe for up to 5 per cent U.235 enriched NPF's and having a one a ton per day capacity is a fundamental problem of Hanford NPF Program. Two basic design concepts have so far evolved, both of which employ a recirculating system in which the fuel elements are placed in the critically safe geometry separated from the bulk of the solution in another vessel. In one concept the fuel elements are charged to a set of geometrically safe cylinders or tubes and solution is circulated… more

Scratch Depth Measurement Methods

Description: Judging scratch depth or surface roughness by unaided visual inspection under controlled conditions, while rapid and popular, is not quantitative. Comparison methods improve reproducibility but are generally not applicable to evaluation of depths of single widely spaced scratches. Stylus-type contour recorders yield valuable scratch contour data but may themselves plow through soft materials and fine details. Depth measuring microscopes are particularly applicable to measurement of pinhole dept… more

A Note Concerning the "100% Value" in Iron Absorption Studies by Whole Body Counting

Description: The evaluation of iron absorption using a single crystal whole-body counter is complicated by the inherent difficulty of determining a correct "100% value". Shortly after ingestion, tracer radioiron can be found in the stomach, upper small intestine, portal circulation and liver. Fourteen to twenty days later, the time at which absorption is measured most effectively, the radioiron will be distributed between the red cell mass, liver, spleen, bone marrow and other storage areas. With this mixed… more

Polymerization in Solid Solutions of Acrylamide in Propionamide

Description: It has previously been shown that the polymer formed in solid state polymerization of acrylamide is amorphous in spite of the fact that the reaction takes place within a crystalline solid. The stage at which it becomes amorphous is not known at present. Work with dilute solid solutions of acrylamide in propionamide suggests that this occurs after the addition of, at most, a very few monomer units.

Determination of the Single Interstitial Migration Energy From Stored Energy and Thermal Resistivity Changes in Irradiated Graphite

Description: The model used to evaluate the single interstitial migration energy from property changes due to interstitials is extended to account for vacancy contributions. The annealing function obtained can be used to determine the relative contributions of the defects and is sufficiently sensitive to distinguish vacancy effects that are an order of magnitude less than interstitial effects. Application of the model to stored energy and thermal resistivity data yields the same values of the activation ene… more

Experiments With Pulsed Magnetic Cusps

Description: Experiments with a simple pulsed magnetic field in cusped geometry are described. The plasma is generated inside the containment region rather than injected from an external source. It was found that creation of the plasma by a linear pinch discharge is most successful. Only qualitative studies have been carried out so far, using time-resolved visual observation of the plasma. Well-defined plasma bodies located in the central region between the cells were photographed. In order to make them cle… more
