Stress analysis of 100-K primary piping

Description: The program to assess the integrity of the K Reactor primary coolant piping systems with regard to the potential for brittle failure includes as an essential part an analysis of stresses in the piping materials both during normal operation and during emergency conditions. This program of stress analysis has recently been completed and has included the physical measurement of stress (strain) during normal operation, calculation of working stresses under design and actual conditions, and analysis of the probable effects on these stresses of emergency loadings. It is the intent of this report to present the results of the analysis of the measured and calculated stresses and to define to the extent possible the conditions of stress in the primary coolant piping systems during both normal and emergency conditions. The data is presented for further evaluation in conjunction with the results of the investigations being conducted to determined fracture toughness properties, crack growth rates, and nil ductility transition temperature ranges of the K Reactor coolant piping materials.

Dynamics of Wheeled Vehicles, Report 1: A Mathematical Model for the Traversal of Rigid Obstacles by a Pneumatic Tire, Appendix B: Digital Implementation of Segmented Tire Model

Description: Summary: "This appendix presents the procedures for digital implementation of the segmented tire model, developed in the basic report for an analog computer. Two procedures are required: (a) determination of the segment spring coefficient from measured load-deflection test results, and (b) computation of the resultant force vector transmitted to the axle. Digital programs for both procedures were written in Fortran IV for a GE-420 system, and are included" (p. xi).

Effect of Cesium Pressure on Thermionic Stability

Description: It is shown that under certain conditions of heat input, reservoir temperature, and load voltage or resistance a thermionic converter can equilibrate at two radically different operation points, corresponding to conditions of high and low cesium coverage. Moreover, abrupt transitions between these operating regimes, accompanied by a temperature rise of hundreds of degrees, can occur whenever the critical heat generation rate for a given reservoir temperature is exceeded. To provide an adequate safety margin against such an occurrence, thermionic systems must be operated at relatively high cesium pressures, even though this may cause some performance degradation. This paper consists of two parts. The first explains the above effect with reference to a single converter. The second part illustrates the effect of cesium reservoir temperatures on the dynamic behavior of an open-loop thermionic reactor following a small reactivity perturbation.
