Abscopal Effects of Localized Irradiation by Accelerator Beams

Description: The aim of this series of experiments was to evaluate the existence of abscopal effects of irradiation. No attempt was made towards the elucidation of mechanisms. Very early in the history of radiological research it was noticed radiation produces both local and general effects involving the entire body. Gauss and Lembcke introduced the term "Roentgenkater" (radiation sickness). They ascribed these "General Effects" to the circulation of toxic substances released from cells that disintegrated f… more

Adaptation of a Commercial Counter X-Ray Diffractometer for Investigations to 3000 C

Description: A General Electric XRD-5 diffractometer equipped with a scintillation counter, a pulse height discriminator, and a modified version of the Model X-86G high-temperature diffractometer attachment, was modified for x-ray diffraction analysis at temperatures up to 3000 deg C. These modifications include frame assemblies, viewing port, filament materials, and thermocouples. (D.L.C.)

Alpha-Gamma Angular Correlation Measurements With Liquid Sources

Description: Alpha-gamma angular correlation measurements were made with solid sources of Am/sup 243/ and with liquid sources containing either Am/sup 243/ or an even-even alpha emitter in dilute perchloric acid solutions. Even-even alpha emitters studied are U/sup 232/, Th/sup 230/, and Ra/sup 226/ . Thicknesses of the soli d sources were controlled so that the neptunium recoils from one source were stopped in Am/sub 2/O/sub 3/, while recoils from the other sources were stopped in the aluminum, gold, or mi… more

Antibody Formation by Transplanted Bone Marrow, Spleen, Lymph Node and Thymus Cells in Irradiated Recipients

Description: The role of the marrow as a site for antibody formation has been considered for many years. In 1912 Ludke reported the appearance of antibody in cultures of marrow cells obtained from previously immunized rabbits. Specific agglutinins for killed typhoid bacilli and lysins for ox red cells and sheep red cells were detected in the culture media 2 to 5 days later. However, the cultured cells failed to produce antibody when these antigens were added to the media. Similar findings by Reiter, Przygod… more

BEVATRON OPERATION AND DEVELOPMENT. XXXIII. Period Covered February- April 1962

Description: Experimental work consisted of one new run started and completed this quarter, and the completion of one of the three continuing runs. Of the scheduled operating time, the beam was on for 69.4% of the time, 2.3% of the time was used for experimental setup, and equipment outage took 29.3% of the time. There were two scheduled and two impromptu shutdowns. During one of the scheduled shutdowns the external-beam extraction magnets were installed in the east and south tangent tanks. The other schedu… more

BOILING WATER REACTOR TECHNOLOGY STATUS OF THE ART REPORT. VOLUME II. WATER CHEMISTRY AND CORROSION

Description: Information concerning the corrosive effects of water in power reactor moderator-coolant systems is presented. The information is based on investigations reported in the unclassified literature believed to be fairly complete to 1959, but less complete since then. The material is presented in sections on water decomposition, water chemistry, materials corrosion, corrosion product deposits, and radioactivity. It is noted that the report is presented as a part of a continuing program in developmen… more

Bromine Exchange in Graphite-Bromine Lamellar Compounds

Description: A kinetic study of the exchange of normal and radioactive bromine in graphite-bromine lamellar compounds has been made at temperatures of 30° to 50°C. Natural and synthetic graphite powders were investigated. Two alternative mechanisms for the exchange, volume diffusion and surface exchange, were considered. The data were in better agreement with the diffusion mechanism. Diffusion coefficients of 10 -9 to 10 -8 cm2/sec and an activation energy of 11 to 14 kcal/mole were calculated for the natur… more

BURNOUT CONDITIONS FOR SINGLE ROD IN ANNULAR GEOMETRY, WATER AT 600 TO 1400 PSIA

Description: Tests were run to determine burnout conditions for sn electrically heated rod in a circular tube with an annular flow path for the upward water flow. The conditions correspond to those which might exist in a reactor core. The burnout results for the basic test geometry (straight concentric annulus) showed that a plot of burnout heat flux vs quality is a straight line with a negative slope, and that the burnout heat flux is increased by a decrease in flow or an increase in pressure, while the hy… more

The Calculation of Zero-Point Energies of Molecules by Perturbation Methods

Description: Two methods are proposed for calculating zero-point energies of molecules. The first makes use of the fact that one can easily write down the quantum mechanical Hamiltonian for a vibration system. The zero-point energy can then be obtained by a perturbation scheme without solving the secular equation. The second method requires a knowledge of the normal modes and frequencies of a reference molecule, but then enables one to calculate isotope effects by a perturbation scheme. The methods are appl… more

Chronic Excess Salt Consumption as an Etiologic Factor in Human Hypertension

Description: Since 1940 it has been known that extra salt (i.e. sodium chloride) facilitated the development of experimental hypertension induced by various sterols; subsequently hypertension was induced by desoxycorticosterone acetate plus sodium chloride; then hypertension was produced by using hypertonic saline as the sole source of liquid; and finally, in 1953, Menesly and his associates reported that chronic ingestion of excess dietary salt alone would produce hypertension in rats. Furthermore, in conf… more
