Flora of Healthy Dogs: [Part] 2. Isolation of Enteroviruses from Lower Intestines

Description: Fecal specimens from apparently healthy dogs were inoculated into MK, DK, HeLa, and CP cells. Twenty-six cytopathic agents were isolated in MK, 11 in HeLa, and 4 in CP, but none in DK cells. Neutralization tests indicated that all but one of the viruses were either strains of ECHO type 6 or were closely related to it. Twenty-one of 29 dogs were carrying the virus.

Post-Test Physical, Chemical and Metallurgical Analysis of SNAPTRAN-3 Fuel

Description: The fuel element damage which occurred during the SNAPTRAN-3 Destructive Test of a Snap 10A/2 reactor is described. Chemical analysis of the fuel indicated that approximately 15% of the hydrogen was released and that the core flux was higher toward the center both radially and axially. Metallurgical analysis of the fuel determined the presence of the epsilon, delta, and gamma phases in the grain structure and evidence of a possible alpha or beta phase.

Type 316 Stainless Steel, Inconel, and Haynes Alloy No. 25 Natural-Circulation Boiling-Potassium Corrosion Test Loops

Description: Report issued by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory discussing natural-circulation corrosion test loops. As stated in the abstract, "an investigation was undertaken to determine the compatibility of conventional nickel, iron, and cobalt-base high-temperature alloys with boiling potassium. The tests were designed to obtain quantitative information on the dissolution of the container alloys by condensing potassium and the subsequent deposition of solute in the subcooled liquid region of the test d… more
