An Aerodynamic Raindrop Sorter. Technical Progress Report No. 1.

Description: A pilot model of an Aerodynamic Raindrop Sorter was constructed along the lines suggested by mathematical analysis. The function of the analyzer is to sort natural rain according to drop size and to collect the sorted drops for further analysis. The pilot model, a small wind tunnel inclined at 45 deg to the horizontal, demonstrated the feasibility of aerodynamic rain drop sorting over a wide range of drop sizes. (auth)

Bismuth

Description: This report provides a broad and in depth discussion of bismuth, discussing the properties of bismuth--including physical, electrochemical, and chemical properties. It then discusses the processes by which bismuth is detected and how bismuth can be separated and isolated, with discussions of dissolution, precipitation, and extraction.

Bremestrahlung in p-p-Collisions at an Energy of 150 MeV

Description: The differential cross-section for bremestrahlung in p-p collisions at an energy of 140 Mev is calculated at the upper end of the photon spectrum. the only transition which is considered is the E2 transition between 1D2 and the 1S0 state. The Siegart theorem is used and influence of the Coulomb force between the two protons is neglected.

Control and Dynamics Performance of a Sodium Cooled Reactor Power System

Description: Introduction: Objectives and Method of Approach. High plant efficiencies can be realized without excessively high core temperatures and high coolant pressures by the use of liquid metal coolant. In an attempt to prove the feasibility of liquid sodium as a reactor coolant ALCO Products, Inc., under sponsorship of the Atomic Energy Commission, is undertaking a design study of three vital system components: the intermediate exchanger, the boiler, and the superheater. Since, in the past programs,… more

The Crystal Structure of LiCuCl3-2H2O*

Description: This report undertakes research to study LiCuCl3-2H2O is from a structural standpoint, revealing the oxygen positions. The study uses the Levy-Bussing anisotropic temperature factor treatment and least squares program to determine a discrepancy factor for the visually determined intensities. The structure of the molecule is also found to have interesting magnetic properties which has inspired a new study at Brookhaven.

Evaluation of the Technical, Economic and Practical Feasibility of Radiation Preservation of Fish

Description: From abstract: Based on exploratory studies conducted over the last six years on the radiation-preservation of various marine species, it is apparent that low dose substerilization-radiation treatment of certain selected sea foods can provide advantages for the procurer, processor, distributor and consumer of edible marine products.

Fuel Element Development Program for the Pebble Bed Reactor

Description: ...Development during this quarter have caused a shift in emphasis of the Pebble Bed Reactor Fuel Element Development Program from coatings on the sphere surface to coatings on individual fuel particles as the major deterrent to fission product leakage. In a high level irradiation test, cracks developed in the coatings of specimens coated with pyrolytic carbon and siliconized silicon carbide. In another high level irradiation test, a graphite sphere fueled with Al2O3 coated with UO2 particles … more

Fuel Element Development Program for the Pebble Bed Reactor

Description: A variety of spherical uranium-graphite fuel elements were fabricated with the objective of meeting the requirements of the Pebble Bed Reactor. Major emphasis was on silicon-silicon carbide coatings, pyrolytic carbon coatings and alumina coated fuel particles. An exploratory program on the limits of thorium oxide loadings by the infiltration process was started.Poor results with sintered alumina coated UO2 particles led to development work on alumina coating by vapor deposition for which the … more

The Influence of Point Defects on the Mechanical Properties of Lithium Fluoride : First Technical Report

Description: Lithium fluoride crystals were quenched into silicone oil from near the melting point. The return to an equilibrium structure during annealing was observed by means of mechanical tests and etching techniques. Crystals containing three levels of impurity, zone refined, commercially pure, and doped with 0.05 mole per cent magnesium, were used in order to separate the effects of foreign ions from those of thermal vacancies. The changes of mechanical properties produced by quenching and by subseque… more
