The Spectrophotometric Determination of Boron in Plutonium Using an Oxalate Separation

Description: An improved method for the determination of boron in plutonium is reported. Precipitation of plutonium (III) acid oxalate prior to color development with curcumin results in increased precision, greater speed, and lower costs. Results are presented of a statistical study involving all variables.

The Anodizing of Zirconium

Description: Five continuous coatings were produced on zirconium coupons using an anodizing technique. These layers appear to be quite adherent and not subject to visible or audible failure caused by flaxion of the basis metal, Their abrasion resistance, though not investigated thoroughly, appears to be moderately good.

A Simple Leak Detector for Tritium

Description: From abstract: "An ionization chamber of the integrating type was built that could detect a tritium leak rate of 10[^-13] cc per second within a few minutes, after a gas-collecting period of 16 hours. Electronic circuitry was avoided by using a quartz fiber voltmeter to indicate the rate of discharge of the chamber."

Summary Report on Thorium Metal Quality for Production Reactor Use

Description: From abstract: "Background material leading to the development of the metal quality of reactor-grade thorium is given. The metal should be sound and of uniform hardness, free of internal cracks and inclusions, and corrosion resistant. It should contain only small amounts of natural uranium, thorium oxide, and elements that act as reactor poisons. Because of their effect upon metal quality, various methods for the production of thorium are discussed. Use of consumable electrode arc melting as the final step has contributed much to the production of thorium of excellent quality for reactor use."

Two-Phase Pressure Losses Quarterly Progress Report: Sixth Quarter, May 12, 1963 - August 12, 1963

Description: Technical report describing that the pressure drops along 3/4-inch, 1-inch, and 1-1/4 inch straight pipes and across three contraction-expansion inserts in a 1-inch pipe have been measured under both single- and two-phase flow conditions. Pressure was varied from 600 to 1400 psia, flow from 0.25 x 10(6) to 1.66 x 10(6) lb/hr ft, and quality from zero to 90 percent. The single-phase pipe friction factor agrees with the Moody value for smooth pipe. The two-phase friction for horizontal flow shows no size effect in the range of pipe sizes from 3/4 inch to 1-1/4 inch. The values lie below the Martinelli curve at the lower qualities (x<0.6), but at high qualities tend to be above the Martinelli curve. The single-phase loss coefficient for the three contraction-expansion inserts show very little Reynolds number effect in the range of channel Reynolds numbers from 3 x 10(4) to 5 x 10(5). The two-phase data for insert number 1 has not yet been reduced. The two-phase loss for insert numbers 2 and 3 lies generally below the loss prediction based on a homogeneous flow model. The two-phase loss for insert number 2 shows excellent agreement with the corresponding loss for the S-1 insert in the 1/2- by 1-3/4-inch rectangular channel reported earlier. The two-phase loss for insert number 3 agrees fairly well with the loss for the S-5 insert.
