A GENERALIZED SHIELDING STUDY FOR NUCLEAR ELECTRIC SPACE POWER PLANTS

Description: The weights and thicknesses of two-layer W-- LiH shadow shields were calculated for SNAP-2, -8, and (assumed) -50 reactors. The shields are shaped as spherical sectors with haif-angles up to 30 deg and are sized so that no part of the reactor is visible within the volume subtended by the shield. Weights and thicknesses are presented for both manned and unnaanned vehicles over a wide range of reactor thermal powers, operating durations, reactorpayload separation distances, and allowable radiatio… more

Uniformly Reactive Uranium Dioxide from a Single Oxidation-Reduction Cycle

Description: Abstract: By use of a modified thermobalance and reactor as the primary experimental tool for sample preparation and evaluation, a process has been developed by which parent uranium feed materials of a widely variable reactivity and composition may be converted to a uniformly reactive uranium dioxide.
