A Regulated Power Supply for a High Current Magnet

Description: Current regulation of a Bitter type electromagnet powered by a 10 kw. motor-generator set has been achieved by control of the generator exciting field. An error signal, obtained by comparing the voltage drop across a series resistor in the magnet circuit with a reference voltage, is fed back with appropriate amplification to the grids of series tubes in the generator field supply. Magnetic fields from 400 gauss to 10 kilogauss in a fixed gap (1.5 in. width and 3.5 in. diameter) are obtainable w… more

Path of Triple Point for spherical Shocks Above a Rigid Plane

Description: Paths of trip points of Mach reflections produced by 0.5-oz pentolite detonations have been observed for various burst heights. The slopes, Y, at points on the curved path are found to vary from values of Y predicted from plane shock wave data. This discrepancy is attributed to the shock strength conditions at the early inception of the Mach reflection, which later influence the triple point equilibrium, and in lesser degree to radius of curvature effects.

The Shape of a Shock Wave Derived from a Spherical Shock Wave Incident on a Concave Wedge

Description: When a one-half ounce spherical charge of high explosive is detonated over a flat plane bounded by a 5 degree incline, the type of phenomenon encountered depends on the distance from ground zero to a beginning of the incline. If this distance is 48" the wave assumes a smooth contour on the plane. Detailed investigation of the shock velocity above the plane reveals that there is a pressure gradient along the shock front for a considerable region which replaces the usual triple point.

Emission Rate of Fission Products from a Hole in the Cladding of a Reactor Fuel Element

Description: It is assumed that when a hole appears in the cladding of a reactor fuel tube the fission products in the space between the fuel and the cladding will diffuse towards the hole. There they are swept away by the flow of steam past the hole. The process of diffusion is assumed to be governed by the ordinary diffusion equation with the boundary condition that the density of the fission products is zero at the surface of the hole. The diffusion equation is solved for the case of steady-state emissio… more

A Numerical Integration Scheme for Problems Involving Contour Representations

Description: The definition of the Lebesgue integral is used to develop a numerical integration method in which the integral is evaluated directly from a contour plot of the function. It is useful in working from weather maps, potential surfaces, etc., but was particularly designed to assist in reducing blast diffraction space-time diagrams to simple, meaningful quantities.

Principles and Techniques of Ultrasonic Inspection

Description: Ultrasonic inspection for subsurface flaws is widely used in American industry. This report reviews the general principles and specific techniques of ultrasonic testing. The information is based on a review of the technical literature plus the experience of the Quality Assurance Department at Sandia Corporation in applying this nondestructive testing technique to quality evaluation programs.

Datatron digital Computer Program for least-Squares Analysis of Variance

Description: A digital computer program for calculating least-squares solutions and making analyses of variance of sets of overdetermined linear equations is described. The entire code is reproduced with sufficient description of the program to enable anyone familiar with the Electrodata Datatron Computer to use it for similar problems.

The Mass Spectrum of Methane and the Energy Levels of the Fragment Ions and Radicals

Description: A MO calculation of the electronic states of CH4, CH3, CH2, CH, and their respective ions provided the basis for the application of correlation rules to an analysis of the existing appearance potential data for methane. An interpretation of the methane mass spectrum has been proposed which is based on the high value of the heat of sublimation of carbon. It is shown that the excited electronic states of the molecule- and radical-ions are prominent in the decomposition reactions.

The Mass Spectra of Large Molecules. III, Metastable Ions from Propane and the Mass Spectrum of 2,2 Di-Deuteropropane

Description: There is at present a large collection of data giving the relative abundances of ions formed when molecules, especially hydrocarbons, are bombard with electrons and collected as positives ions in a mass spectrometer. This data per se gives us little insight into the kinetic processes occurring until it is combined with thermodynamic data and subject to a theoretical treatment based upon an assumed model for the kinetic processes taking place in the mass spectrometer. In accordance with our desi… more

The Electronic Energy Levels and the Mass Spectrum of Methane

Description: Recent instrumental developments and theoretical speculation have indicated a need for more information concerning the excited electronic states of polyatomic molecules and ions in the elucidation of mass spectra. A theoretical description of these states is necessary for the proper interpretation of existing data and in laying a firm basis for the planning of future experiments. For the above reasons the energies of a number of the excited electronic states of methane have been calculated in a… more

High Altitude Cosmic Ray Neutron Intensity Variations

Description: Three groups of balloon flights carrying unshielded boron trifluoride counters were made from geomagnetic latitudes 10.1°N, 55.1°N, and 88.6°N. From the data obtained, curves of slow-neutron intensity versus atmospheric depth for depths less than 700 millibars are plotted. The mean absorption lengths for neutrons in the equilibrium portion of the atmosphere were found to be [formula]. The depths of the neutron intensity maxima were found to be [formula]. From these results and those of other in… more
