A Computer Code (CDC 1604A or IBM 7090) for Calculating the Cost of Shipping Spent Reactor Fuels as a Function of Burnup, Specific Power, Cooling Time, Fuel Composition, and Other Variables

Description: Report presenting the calculation of the costs incurred in shipping irradiated uranium-containing fuel elements. A computer code that designs a cask and calculates the shipping costs is presented. By use of the code, shipping costs were calculated for typical reactor fuels.

Deposition of Submicron-Size Particles in Ventilation Ducts

Description: The purpose of this study was to investigate mathematically the concentration decrease due to particle deposition phenomena in highly concentrated monodispersed aerosols (mean particle size less than 1.0 mu) flowing through ventilation ducts. It was found that, from the standpoint of removal, the decrease in concentration due to deposition on duct walls was insignificant; but, when considering contamination on duct walls, the amount deposited, even though small when compared with the amount in … more

Comparison of the Thermal Conductivity, Electrical Resistivity, and Seebeck Coefficient of a Hight-Purity Iron and Armco Iron to 1000 [degrees] C

Description: The thermophysical properties of Armco iron such as thermal conductivity, electrical resistivity, and Seebeck coefficient have been extensively investigated and reviewed up to 1000 degrees C. Few investigations of such properties have been made on high purity iron. If such a study is made using the same apparatus to determine the properties of two purity levels of iron, then several significant intercomparisons can be made which add meaning to data on a single material. The systemic errors for … more

A Thermal Comparator Apparatus for Thermal Conductivity Measurements from 50 to 400 [degrees] C

Description: The experimental details, mathematical models, and typical data for a rapid comparative method for thermal conductivity measurements are presented. The method consists of measuring the temperature change of a small silver sphere after it is brought in contact with a small disk-shaped specimen which was initially at ta higher temperature. This temperature change was calibrated in the range of 50 to 400 degrees C by making measurements on samples of know thermal conductivity. The accuracy of this… more

Thermal Properties of Grade CGB Graphite

Description: Grade CGB graphite is a nuclear graphite which is basically an extruded petroleum coke bonded with coal tar pitch. No carbon blacks are used and the low-permeation graphite is finished through a series of impregnations and heat treatments with a final heat treatment of all components to 2800 degrees C. A listing of the results obtained is given in Table 1. The results at 51 degrees C are considered questionable. There was a slight contamination of the 90% Pt 10% Rh-Pt thermocouples at 910 degre… more

Analysis of the Combustion of Graphite-Uranium Fuels in a Fixed Bed or Moving Bed

Description: The first step in a proposed processing method for recovery of uranium from graphite-uranium fuels consists of oxidation of the fuel by oxygen to volatilize the carbon. Residue ash from the combustion step can be treated in a variety of ways to recover and purify the uranium. The combustion step may be caried out by contacting the solid fuel in a fixed or moving bed with a stream of oxygen-bearing gas in a tubular or annular reactor. Oxidizing gas may be introduced to the reactor at several poi… more

Graduate Programs for the Health Physicist in the United States

Description: The first man-made nuclear reactor -- or "pile" as it was then called -- was rather hurriedly improvised and operated in a crowded space under the athletic bleachers of Stagg Field at the University of Chicago on December 2, 1942. Just prior to this time, there began the assembly of a group of physicists with an unusual assignment. They were determined that radiation hazards of unprecedented proportions must be coped with successfully in the conduct of reactor programs as planned. Since these p… more
