Feed Materials Production Center Summary Technical Report: July 1, 1963-September 30, 1963

Description: From abstract: The temperature of molten uranium was measured indirectly by an infrared radiation pyrometer. The emissivities of graphite and molten uranium were determined, and a series of equations correlating pyrometer readings with melt temperatures was derived.

Wall and Bulk Temperatures for Fluids Flowing in Concentric Annuli

Description: From introduction: "This brief paper deals with the subject of radial temperature differences for heat transfer to fluids flowing through concentric annuli under the following conditions and assumptions: a. constant heat flux; b. fully-established turbulent flow; c. heat transfer through inner wall only; d. physical properties independent of temperature."

Uniformly Reactive Uranium Dioxide from a Single Oxidation-Reduction Cycle

Description: Abstract: By use of a modified thermobalance and reactor as the primary experimental tool for sample preparation and evaluation, a process has been developed by which parent uranium feed materials of a widely variable reactivity and composition may be converted to a uniformly reactive uranium dioxide.

Materials for Fluorine Generator Anode Assemblies

Description: Corrosion of anode assembly materials in fluorine generators is pronounced, therefore, selection of the proper materials for construction is important. Several metals and alloys have been tested for corrosion resistance when anodic in a fluorine test cell. In general, copper, copper alloys and magnesium alloys offer the best corrosion resistance.

Experimental Evaluation of a Sodium-to-Sodium Heliflow Heat Exchanger at Temperatures up to 1200°F

Description: Abstract: Because of the outstanding heat transfer efficiency of sodium, it is necessary in sodium-cooled reactors to consider and attempt to prevent the occurrence of adverse stresses as a result of thermal transients in the system.

Surface Motion from an Underground Detonation

Description: Abstract: Surface and near-surface acceleration and strain were measured on a deep underground nuclear burst (Rainier Shot; 900 ft; 1.7 kt) to permit extrapolation of results to nuclear detonations of other yields under different test or employment conditions.

The Extraction Method of Purification of Uranyl Nitrate

Description: Technical report. Three extractions of a diethyl ether solution of uranyl nitrate with small portions of water are effective in removing rare earths, as is shown by radio-gadolinium and radio-europium tracer experiments. A study of representative ethers, alcohols, ketones, and esters showed that diethyl ether and a mixture of 85% ethyl methyl ketone with 15% xylene are the best solvents for the extraction.

The Heavy-Water Homogeneous Pile: a Review of Chemical Researches and Problems

Description: Technical Report: A generalized review of the chemical problems and researches related principally to the heavy water homogeneous pile is presented herewith. The report covers researches performed principally by the Columbia Group who initiated the study. This report contains a chronological outline of the development, a discussion of some special topics whose significance is paramount in any slurry pile discussion, and finally an outline of important research problems remaining, roughly grad… more

Preparation of Carrier Free Zr-Cb Tracer, Problem Assignment No. 263-X61C, Progress Report

Description: Technical report abstract. A rapid procedure for the preparation of very pure carrier-free Zr and Nb tracer involves the chloroform extraction of the cupferrides of Zr and Nb activities from process solutions. Zr and Nb form very stable chloroform soluble cupferrides in acid solutions (CK-993) and are separated from other fission elements almost quantitatively to yield pure mixture of Zr and Nb activity. A minimum of operations is required and the method is easily adaptable to remote control.

The Isolation and Properties of Curium

Description: From introduction: "The discovery of element number 96, curium, was realized by the preparation and identification of the isotope Cm-242 by G. T. Seaborg, R. A. James and A. Ghiorso by cyclotron bombardment of Pu-239 with helium ions."

Interfacial Tension Measurement on A1(NO₃)₃ - H₂O - HNO₃ - Dibutyl Cellosolve System

Description: This report discusses two methods used for experimental determination of the interfacial tension of an immisible aqueous-organic system where the density of the organic phase is less than that of the aqueous phase. The methods discussed are the falling drop method and the Donnan modification/rising drop method.
