Topical Report on Refining of MgX and Other Uranium-Bearing Materials

Description: This report discusses a study which explores the effects of feed and acidity on extractive methods. From abstract: "Results from fractional precipitation of MgX from dilute sulfuric acid solutions indicate that, in the presence of sufficienct iron, phosphate is precipitated as ferric phosphate, and not as uranyl phosphate."

Identification of Slag Constituents from Uranium Metal Production Bombs

Description: Abstract: "X-ray and microscopic examination of slags from uranium metal production bombs which gave good and bad yields in the plant at St. Louis have indicated the significance of uranium oxide formation. Apparently the oxide (UO2) results from reaction of the UF4 with linear material, particularly with moisture in the liner."

Final Report on Purification of Thorium Nitrate by Solvent Extraction With Tributyl Phosphate: 2. Mixer-Settler Pilot Plant Investigations

Description: From abstract: "This report describes the construction and operation of a mixer-settler pilot plant for the purification of mantle-grade thorium nitrate. The liquid-liquid extraction process utilized 30% tributyl phosphate - 70% 'Solvesso-100' as the organic solvent and nitric acid as the salting agent. Continuous steady-state operation of the equipment was demonstrated, with very good recovery of thorium."

Development of the Hanford Slave Manipulator for Use in the Multicurie Cells at Hanford

Description: Introduction: "During the early planning of the multicurie cells at Hanford it was decided that a slave type manipulator would be necessary to perform the experiments for which the cells were being designed. The design required steel roofs for installation through a port hole in the face. Technical Services Equipment Development began developing the proposed manipulator in January 1951 by making a study of those existing at that tune. None met the requirements which had been established; theref… more

Interpretation and Evaluation of the Uranium Occurences Near Goodsprings, Nevada: Final Report

Description: Abstract: The uranium occurrences near Goodsprings, Clark Co., Nevada, are divided into two distinct types which differ from each other in geographic distribution, localization of mineralization, mineralogy and origin. None of the known deposits is of present commercial significance and therefore this study emphasizes the genetic rather than the economic aspects.

Method for Estimating Lift Interference of Wing-Body Combinations at Supersonic Speeds

Description: Memorandum presenting the use of the modified slender-body method to predict the lift and moment interference of triangular wing-body combinations adapted to combinations with other than triangular wings. The methods are applied to the prediction of the lit-curve slopes of nearly 100 triangular, rectangular, and trapezoidal wing-body configurations.

Measurement of Static Forces on Externally Carried Bombs of Fineness Ratios 7.1 and 10.5 in the Flow Field of a Swept-Wing Fighter- Bomber Configuration at a Mach Number of 1.6

Description: Memorandum presenting forces and moments measured at Mach number 1.6 in the 4- by 4-foot supersonic pressure tunnel on bombs of fineness ratios 7.0 and 10.5 in the presence of a swept-wing fighter-bomber airplane configuration for a large number of positions under the fuselage. The results can be used to calculate bomb-drop paths.

An Investigation at Transonic Speeds of the Effects of Fences, Drooped Nose, and Vortex Generators on the Aerodynamic Characteristics of a Wing-Fuselage Combination Having a 6-Percent-Thick, 45 Degree Sweptback Wing

Description: Report presenting an investigation at transonic speeds to determine the effects of fences, drooped nose, combination fences and drooped nose, and vortex generators on a 45 degree sweptback wing-fuselage combination. The purpose of undertaking this investigation was due to the pitch-up tendency that results from leading-edge vortex-type flow on thin sweptback wings. The data for each component and their interaction with one another is also provided.
