Analysis of Current Distribution in Electrolytic Cells With Flowing Mercury Cathodes

Description: An idealized model is postulated embodying the essential features of industrial caustic-chlorine cells with horizontal flowing-mercury cathodes. This model is examined in detail, and relations expressing the local anode potential, cathode potential, and ohmic potential drop in the electrolyte in terms of local current density and other parameters are established. These relations are combined to give a system of equations relating current density at any location along the cell to applied total potential and to operating conditions in the cell upstream of the point in question. Numerical solutions of these equations for several cases of cell operating conditions are carried out on a digital computing machine. The effects of changes in operating parameters upon average current density, individual electrode potentials, and current distribution are evaluated. (auth)

Apparatus for the Study of Fission-Gas Release From Fuels During Postirradiation Heating at Temperatures Up to 1600 C

Description: An apparatus to study rare-gas fission-product release from nuclear fuel materials during postirradiation heating was developed. Xenon and krypton fission gases escaping from a small specimen during heating at constant temperature are measured using a continuous radioactivity monitor and charcoal adsorption traps. The rhodium-wound furnace is capable of operation at 1600 deg C. Helium carrier gas is purified by activated alumina, copper, and zirconium traps, and the oxygen and moisture contents of the gas are monitored continuously. The operating procedure and data are presented for a typical heating experiment in which fused uranium dioxide was studied. (auth)

APPR-1 STARTUP ANALYSIS

Description: The Army Package Power Reactor (APPR-1) control system was analyzed to find its response to a startup accident. The system was found to be adequate, at 0.086%/sec rod withdrawal, for operation of at least twice the rated power. (C.J.G.)

ART-04--A MODIFICATION OF THE ART PROGRAM FOR THE TREATMENT OF REACTOR THERMAL TRANSIENTS ON THE IBM-704

Description: Several recent modifications of the ART program for the study of the behavior of a nuclear reactor during various thermal transients are described. The program requires a 32,000-word IBM-704 computer with six tape units. The major modifications are provision for a slip flow model and for void reactivity contribution. (auth)

The Bonding of Molybdenum-and Niobium-Clad Fuel Elements

Description: A solid-state bonding technique involving the use of gas pressure at elevated temperatures was utilized for the self-bonding of molybdenum and niobium. Bonding conditions and surface preparation as a function of the integrity of the bond achieved were evaluated for each material. Optimum self-bonding of niobium was achieved by bonding parameters of 2100 to 2300 deg F at 10,000 psi for 3 hr with surfaces which had been prepared by etching in a nitrichydrofluoric acid solution prior to bonding. The process as developed was used to prepare niobium- clad flat-plate- and rod-type fuel elements and flat-plate subassemblies. Niobium tubing was also fabricated by this technique. (Molyb denum self-bonding was most readily achieved by gaspressure bonding at temperatures of 2300 to 2600 deg F at 10,000 psi for periods of 3 hr. With these bonding conditions a number of different surface preparations were satisfactory. Directional ductility of the molybdenum was encountered after bonding and methods to eliminate this were evaluated. Cross rolling with respect to the original rolling direction was shown to improve the ductility of molybdenum-clad specimens. (auth)

CHEMICAL DECONTAMINATION OF THE ANL-2 HIGH-PRESSURE WATER LOOP

Description: The chemical decontamination of the ANL-2 Highpressure Water Loop at the MTR is described. A mixture of sodium hydroxide and potassium permanganate was first applied to oxidize partially and loosen the magnetite corrosion film on the loop surfaces. Next, the system was treated with a solution of Versenol 120 to remove and suspend the loosened oxide film. The third chemical treatment was a mixture of sulfamic acid, HEDTA, hydrazine, and Rodine 80. After the first two chemical treatments a brown residue remained, which was presumed to be manganese dioxide. The third solution completely removed all traces of residue from the first two treatments. After a delay of one MTR fuel cycle (three weeks) due to mechanical difficulties, the loop was operated for approximately 300 hours at 420 deg F and 380 psig with excess hydrogen to passivate the loop surfaces. Approximately 70% of the corrosion film was removed from the loop surfaces as a result of the chemical decontamination. (auth)
