Distribution of Uranium at Low Acid : Low Uranium Concentrations into 4-1/2 Percent TBP-AMSCO

Description: Report wherein acid free uranyl nitrate hexahydrate was distributed into 4-1/2 percent TBP-Amsco 125-90W and combined with various concentrations of acid in order to study the distribution of uranium and hydrolysis effects.

Energetic Neutral Injection into Thermonuclear Machines

Description: Abstract: "A scheme is discussed in which D+ ions would be accelerated to about 100 kev in a conventional accelerator, then be sent through a gas target frmo which about half the ions would emerge neutral with very little scattering or energy loss; the neutral beam would then cross into a magnetic field and part of the atoms would be ionized and trapped by colliding with the already trapped ions. The smallest mirror machine with a central field of 30-40 kilogauss, 2;1 mirror ratio and β = 01 to 0.5 that would trap most of the neutral beam in the steady state, would be about a meter in diameter and require the order of hundreds of amperes of D+ ions into the neutralizer. The smallest stellerator with a field of 30 kilogauss and β = 0.1 that would trap most of the neutral beam would be about a meter long and require about 10 amperes of D+ ions. A preliminary mirror machine experiment that might be done using the 1/2-ampere, 100-kev D+ beam from the UCRL spare MTA injector is discussed. A method of starting these machine is discussed."

Potential Applications of Nuclear Energy in a Marine Environment

Description: Introduction: In January 1959, Stanford Research Institute was asked by the Office of Maritime Reactors, Division of Reactor Development, of the United States Atomic Energy Commission to identify potential applications of nuclear energy in a marine environment, excluding those involving standard commercial surface ships and direct defense applications, and to conduct a preliminary evaluation of these applications in order to determine which ones appeared most feasible for early implementation.

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.

UC Fuel Element Design and Fabrication

Description: Abstract: Uranium monocarbide shows considerable potential for use as a fuel in high temperature, high power density, nuclear power reactors. As Atomics International is proposing its use in sodium graphite type reactors, it was necessary to develop a process for fabricaing sodium bonded uranium carbide fuel elements.

The High-Temperature Irradiation Behavior of Hypostoichiometric Uranium Monocarbide

Description: From abstract: A series of three multi-compartmented experiments was designed to investigate the irradiation behavior uranium carbide fuels, as a function of composition, temperature, and burn-up; and the mechanical properties of Type 304 stainless steel, as a function of temperature and integrated thermal neutron flux.
