An Approximate Solution for the Vaporization of Liquid Droplets Formed During Re-Entry Ablation

Description: Introduction: The purpose of this report is to describe a mathematical model which will help solve the ultimate-particle-size problem by estimating the evaporative mass losses during that portion of re-entry when the fuel is in liquid form.

Budget for FY 1967 and revised budget for FY 1966, Separations Research and Development Program (02 50 10 15 1)

Description: The Separations Research and Development Program consists of five identifiable activities in four general areas of effort. The five activities are: Chemical processes (Current processes and Innovations and new business); Chemical safety; Process equipment and control (equipment and instrument development); and By-products (recovery and purification). The proposed levels of funding for each of the five activities are listed. For each activity, the major accomplishments of the last year are listed, together with the proposed goals for the next two years. Significant trends in the program are noted.

C-1 coproduct development for N Reactor: Excerpts from N-Reactor Department research and development budget for FY-1967 and revision of budget for FY-1966

Description: This report discusses the production of weapon grade plutonium and tritium as an economically attractive mode of operation for N-Reactor. With the successful completion of the proposed research and development program coproduct production in N-Reactor could begin in January 1967. Approximately 5 kg of tritium could be produced at a reduction in unit total cost of up to $7 per gram equivalent when compared to other modes of operation of N-Reactor that yield only-weapon grade plutonium. Achieving this production level and unit cost requires a fuel and target design that will subject the materials to more severe temperature and exposure conditions than for the tube-in-tube design. Analyses of existing knowledge and experimental results obtained to date are very encouraging. However, there is a continuing need for additional experimental verification of the limiting conditions for both fuel and target to permit the specification of a production fuel and target design. The incremental cost of this program is estimated to be $1,055 million in FY-1965, $0.796 million in FY-1966 and $0.450 million in FY-1967 for a total of $2.3 million. The principal benefits to be derived from this expenditure of research and development funds are lower unit grade plutonium. When the reactor reaches equilibrium operation as a costs for both tritium and weapon dual-purpose reactor producing process steam for credit, it will be a highly competitive producer of plutonium and tritium in the AEC complex.
