The Input Admittance of a Ring Circuit

Description: "A ring circuit is a succession or two-port networks and at least one three-port network, each feeding the next at one port and the last feeding the first so that the sequence closes on itself leaving at least one input port. The input admittance is derived in terms ef various matrices describing the circuit for one- and two-input port rings."

Betatron Oscillations and Equilibrium Orbits in Terms of Amplitude and Phase Functions

Description: "Formulas are given to express the general particle trajectory and the equilibrium orbit for a slightly disturbed synchrotron in terms of the amplitude and phase functions for the ideal machine. If these functions are known, orbit computations can be carried out by simple integration procedures. The formalism is expected to be useful especially for considerations such as beam alignment or generation of an external electron beam. Some equations given earlier are repeated for completeness."

Radiation Effects in Circular Electron Accelerators

Description: "The effects of radiation emission on the motion of electrons in high energy synchrotrons are analyzed. The damping rates and quantum excitation of the three principal modes of oscillation are derived for strong focusing and constant gradient accelerators. Methods for correcting the radiation effects for strong focusing accelerators are discussed."

Analysis of Spurious Modes in Magnet Power Supply

Description: "The resonant frequencies of the magnet power supply are investigated. It is found that there are eleven resonant modes in addition to the desired mode of operation with six additional resonant frequencies. From measurements of the choke model, it appears that the frequencies of some of the spurious modes may lie in the same range as the desired mode of operation."

Evaluation of Foreign Multiplier Phototubes

Description: "Several multiplier phototubes produced by England, Russia, or Switzerland were evaluated for amplification, photocathode sensitivity, photo-electron collection efficiency, cathode uniformity, and dark current. A description of the various tubes by designation numbers is given, along nth a description of techniques and equipment used in testing."

The Response of Concrete Shear Keys to Dynamic Loading

Description: A program for determining the behavior of concrete shear keys under dynamic loading similar to that encountered in nuclear blasts was coupled with a study of the comparative behavior of shear keys under static loading. The testing procedure gave deflection recording for the shear keys, their strength in pure shear, under transverse compression and when dowelled, stresses and strains in the embedded dowels, and the mode of failure of each specimen. From an analysis of the data obtained and a st… more

Transit Times of Compression Sound Waves Through Aluminum Plate

Description: Experiments are described which show that the velocity of compressional waves along a thin plate varies as a function of the frequency of the waves. In terms of transit times in aluminum the value is between 4.02 and 4.94 microseconds per inch.

The X-ray Spectroscopy of Solids

Description: This technical report is based on a a paper presented in October 1955 before the Symposium of the American Society for Metals held at Philadelphia. This is by no means an exhaustive review; selection of the material discussed was made according to the author's interests. Some of the work reported here was assisted by the Office of naval Research and the Atomic Energy Commission through contracts with the Ohio State University Research Foundation.

A Timing Circuit for the UCLA FM Cyclotron

Description: A circuit had been constructed which supplied timing pulses for the various operating components of the UCLA F.M. cyclotron as well as counter gating pulses of variable widths and adjustable positions on the cyclotron duty cycle. The pulses are timed relative to a master pulse generated when the cyclotron oscillator passes through a specified frequency in the direction of decreasing frequency, thus giving only one master pulse per duty cycle. Overall stability of the timing circuit is about one… more

Plutonium Release Incident at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Description: A nonnuclear explosion involving an evaporator occurred in a shielded cell in the Radiochemical Processing Pilot plant at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Plutonium released from the processing cell contaminated areas in the pilot plant building and nearby streets and building surfaces. The explosion is considered the result of rapid reaction of nitrated organic compounds formed by the inadvertent nitration of about 14 liters of a proprietary decontaminating reagent.

Unit Operations Section Monthly Progress Report September 1960

Description: Measurements of the interfacial tension between water and tributyl phosphate solutions were made for application to the analysis of Marengoni effect in solvent extraction. A 24 hr flame calcination run to product Th02 particles yielded 40% as product and 54% collected from the furnace walls and from a coarse particle trap. The elution rates of uranyl ion from Dowex 21K using sodium nitrate could be approximated by assuming apparent diffusion coefficients of 1.67 x 10^-7 and 1.18 x 10 ^-7 cm^2/s… more

Recrystallized Texture of Alpha Uranium

Description: Uranium was plastically deformed 90% at room temperature by unidirectional rolling to a foil 0.002-inches thick. Specimens were recrystallized in the alpha region and several pole figures obtained from 0 to 40 degrees. From these, the preferred orientation was found to be in a spread of idealized (11) [010] about [010].

Infrared Spectra and Structure of the Crystalline Sodium Acetate Complexes of U(VI), Np(VI), Pu(VI), and Am(VI). A Comparison of Metal-Oxygen Bond Distance and Bond fFrce Constant in this Series

Description: Infrared spectra of solid NaXO2(Ac)3, with X=U, Np, Pu, and Am, have been observed. From the symmetric and asymmetric stretching frequencies of the O-X-O groups, approximate X-O force constants have been calculated and were found to decrease in the order kU—O>kNp—O>kPu—O> kAm—O, the respective values being about 0.705, 0.698, 0.675, and 0.612 megadyne/cm. From the cell constants for NaXO2(Ac)3 it is apparent that the X-O bond distance decreases in the same order—RU—O>RNp—O>RPu—O>RAm—O. Thus, a … more

The Spectrophotometric Determination of Dissociation Constants of Dibasic Acids. Methods Using a Minimum Amount of Data

Description: Two spectrophotometric methods are given for determining dissociation constants of dibasic acids. Each method is applicable for any degree of overlapping of the dissociation constants. Neither method requires a direct measurement of the extinction coefficient of any of the individual species that are in equilibrium with each other. A minimum amount of data is required in either method.
