Boundary Disturbances in High Explosive Shock Tubes

Description: Abstract: High Velocity disturbance are observed to propagate in advance of the plane shock front along the walls of a high-explosive-operated shock tube. Experiments were performed which indicate that the disturbance proceeds at a constant velocity relative to the shock front, and carries a considerable amount of energy as evidenced by its ability to penetrate metal plates. The velocity of a similar disturbance observed along a rod placed on the axis of the shock tube normal to the plane shock front was essentially independent of the rod material and diameter. This phenomenon was observed when shock tubes were filled with argon or chlorine but was absent when air or helium was used.

Steady State Temperature Distributions in Hollow Slugs

Description: This document is a sequel to HW-30226, "Steady State Temperature Distribution in a Solid Slug." A primary feature of the present as well as the former paper is a treatment of the stand heat flow equation in a manner which accounts accurately for the dependence of the thermal conductivity, K, on temperature, v.

Interpretation and Evaluation of the Uranium Occurences Near Goodsprings, Nevada: Final Report

Description: Abstract: The uranium occurrences near Goodsprings, Clark Co., Nevada, are divided into two distinct types which differ from each other in geographic distribution, localization of mineralization, mineralogy and origin. None of the known deposits is of present commercial significance and therefore this study emphasizes the genetic rather than the economic aspects.

Gas Cooled Nuclear Reactor Study

Description: Study of a gas cooled reactor with design specifications providing for a source of high temperature heat to a stream of helium. This reactor, in turn, is used as a source of heat for the air stream in a gas-turbine power plant.

Some Variable Contributors to Natural Background

Description: It was suggested that radon concentrations in air and potassium fertilizers on the ground contribute appreciably to natural background radiation levels. The effect on natural background gamma radiation from radon and its associated daughters in equilibrium and from potassium in fertilizers has been calculated and found to be negligible. Background radiation intensities have been assumed to be on the order of 10 [mu]rad/hr.
