Separation of Rubidium from Irradiated Aluminum-Encapsulated Uranium

Description: A procedure was developed for separating rubidium from irradiated aluminum encapsulated uranium. The separations procedure produces a final ultra-high purity rubidium chloride product for subsequent high performance mass spectrometric analysis. The procedure involves first removing most of the macro-components and fission products by strong base anion exchange using, first, concentrated HCl, then oxalic acid media and second, selectively separating rubidium from alkaline-earth ions and other al… more

Improving the Accuracy of Computed Singular Values

Description: This paper describes a computational method for improving the accuracy of a given singular value and its associated left and right singular vectors. The method is analogous to iterative improvement for the solution of linear systems. That is, by means of a low-precision computation, an iterative algorithm is applied to increase the accuracy of the singular value and vectors; extended precision computations are used in the residual calculation. The method is related to Newton's Method applied to… more

Nuclear-waste-package program for high-level isolation in Nevada tuff

Description: The objective of the waste package program is to insure that a package is designed suitable for a repository in tuff that meets performance requirements of the NRC. In brief, the current (draft) regulation requires that the radionuclides be contained in the engineered system for 1000 years, and that, thereafter, no more than one part in 10{sup 5} of the nuclides per year leave the boundary of the system. Studies completed as of this writing are thermal modeling of waste packages in a tuff repos… more

Preliminary interpretation of thermal data from the Nevada Test Site

Description: Analysis of data from 60 wells in and around the Nevada Test Site, including 16 in the Yucca Mountain area, indicates a thermal regime characterized by large vertical and lateral gradients in heat flow. Estimates of heat flow indicate considerable variation on both regional and local scales. The variations are attributable primarily to hydrologic processes involving interbasin flow with a vertical component of (seepage) velocity (volume flux) of a few mm/yr. Apart from indicating a general down… more

Instrumentation report 1: specification, design, calibration, and installation of instrumentation for an experimental, high-level, nuclear waste storage facility

Description: The Spent Fuel Test-Climax (SFT-C) is being conducted 420 m underground at the Nevada Test Site under the auspices of the US Department of Energy. The test facility houses 11 spent fuel assemblies from an operating commercial nuclear reactor and numerous other thermal sources used to simulate the near-field effects of a large repository. We developed a large-scale instrumentation plan to ensure that a sufficient quality and quantity of data were acquired during the three- to five-year test. The… more

Status of the Nevada Nuclear Waste Storage investigations

Description: The Nevada Nuclear Waste Storage Investigations (NNWSI) are part of the National Waste Terminal Storage (NWTS) program being conducted by the Department of Energy. Within the NWTS program, the NNWSI is the component that focuses on siting evaluations on and near the Nevada Test Site (NTS). The objectives of the Nevada project include evaluating the suitability of a Test and Evaluation Facility (TEF) site on or near the NTS, evaluating the suitability of a commercial nuclear waste repository sit… more

Ground motion from earthquakes and underground nuclear weapons tests: a comparison as it relates to siting a nuclear waste storage facility at NTS

Description: Ground motion generated by a magnitude 4.3 earthquake at Massachusetts Mountain on the Nevada Test Site was measured at the control point and compared with ground motion generated at about the same distance by four underground nuclear weapons tests. The depth of the earthquake was between 4 and 4.6 km. The resulting signal at the distance considered was almost entirely body-wave components and had little or no contribution from the surface wave. The motion from the relatively shallower weapons … more

Scoping analysis for radionuclide migration test

Description: The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is to conduct an in situ test of radionuclide migration in fractured granite. Radionuclides are to be injected into a fracture in the Climax Stock of the Nevada Test Site, then transported by fluid motion and subsequently withdrawn. The fluid will be injected through a borehole intersecting a near vertical fracture and withdrawn through a second borehole that intersects the fracture directly below the first. The scoping calculations presented here are … more

Acidification of Geothermal Wells Laboratory Experiments - Geothermal Reservoir Well Stimulation Program

Description: This report describes the laboratory testing of the reactions of acetic, formic, hydrochloric, ad hydrofluoric acids with calcium carbonate, kaolin, sepiolite, and two formation materials at geothermal temperatures. In general, a workable test procedure was developed which provided information regarding the relative reactivities of selected minerals or formation materials with three of the four acids investigated. Tests with hydrochloric acrid were complicated by reactions of the acid with the … more
