State of Matter at High Pressure

Description: Abstract. The region where exact thermodynamic description of the state of matter at high pressure and high temperature is possible is located. In the remaining region various approximate theories and empirical relations are discussed. These considerations are applied to hydrogen to locate the density and pressure at which the diatomic bond collapses. Also the approximate conditions are determined at which no bound electron states exist.

GAUGE FOR MEASURING BOW OF TUBES

Description: A mechanical gage was designed to measure the bow over any one-foot length of long cylindrical material. The gage was used successfully for measuring bow in components of tubular fuel elements at the Savannah River Laboratory. (auth)

Abstract -- A description of low temperature hydriding of zircaloy at Hanford

Description: The two K Reactors at the Hanford Plant of the Atomic Energy Commission were retubed in 1963 with ribless Zircaloy process tubes. These tubes, 1.81 inch OD x 0.037 inch wall, were made by tube reducing methods from extruded blooms and were installed without final pickling or autoclaving. These tubes are used with once-through filtered water with a maximum coolant temperature of approximately 110 C. After approximately two years` service, it was discovered that these tubes were absorbing hydroge… more

Damage Flux in Critical Assemblies

Description: An important limitation on the design of an inpile thermionic reactor is the fast neutron irradiation damage to the insulators, which is expressed quantitatively by the energy weighted neutron flux, or damage flux. The behavior of the damage flux has been investigated for a set of hypothetical critical assemblies containing different types of fuel and different amounts of moderator. It is shown that for a given fuel, the damage flux is reduced by moderating the neutron spectrum, and for a given… more

U-10 Wt % Mo Fuel Element: Irradiation in SRE

Description: From abstract: The fuel element assembly was successfully irradiated in the SRE to a maximum burnup of 5300 Mwd/MTU, at a peak fission rate of approximately 1.5 x 10E13 fissions/cm3-sec and a maximum central temperature near 1200F.

COMPOUNDS OF DIVALENT-LANTHANIDES. PREPARATION, OPTICAL PROPERTIES, AND CRYSTAL STRUCTURE

Description: Preparation of the sulfates, carbonates, and fluorides of divalent samarium, europium, and ytterbium is described. Crystallographic data from both x-ray and optical examination of the compounds are presented. Due to the instability of these plus (II) salts, the precision of the measurement is affected, but sufficient for characterization. A simple and convenient electrolytic method was devised to prepare the divalent sulfates. By metathetical reactions, carbonates and fluorides were prepared. T… more

Gas-Phase Radiolysis of Propane

Description: Abstract. the direct and inert-gas radiolysis, as well as the vacuum ultra-violet photolysis of CD3CH2CD3, CH3CD2CH3 and C3H2+C3D3 mixtures have been investigated in the presence of radical scavengers. The major conclusions are : (a) at atmospheric pressures, neutral propane decomposition contributes to the observed products although to a lesser extent than parent ion decompositions ; (b) a variation in pressure has a pronounced effect on the fragmentation of the parent ion ; (c) the hydrogen a… more

Radioactive contamination in liquid wastes discharged to ground at separations facilities through December 1961

Description: This document summarizes the amounts of radioactive contamination discharged to ground from separations facilities through December 1961. Detailed data for individual disposal sites are presented on a month-to-month basis for the period of July through December 1961. Previous publications of this series are listed in the bibliography and may be referred to for specific information on measurements and radioactivity totals prior to December 1961.
