Gas-Cooled Fast Reactor Concepts: a Study

Description: Report describing the performance characteristics of gas-cooled fast reactors, which compare well with those of sodium-cooled fast reactors. With oxide fuel and helium, CO2, and SO2 coolant at pressures of 1000 to 1500 psia, the reactors have slightly higher breeding ratios than comparable sodium-cooled reactors.

Geophysical Seismic Evaluation Study at Hanford

Description: From introduction: "In June, 1963, a geophysical research program was conducted at Hanford to determine the feasibility and desirability of using seismic methods in geohydrologic studies. Detection and delineation were desired of seven different geological features that in some sites affect the movement of liquid radioactive wastes discharged to the ground."

The H-4, H-5, and H-6 Irradiation Experiments: Irradiation of N-Reactor Graphite, Interim Report Number 1

Description: Report regarding an experimental program by Hanford Laboratories' in order "to determine the long-term irradiation behavior of the graphite used as the moderator in N-Reactor. The primary objectives of the program are to provide data for predictions of the distortion of the N-Reactor moderator and the stress conditions which could arise from the difference in the the rate and extent of contraction between the transverse and parallel orientations of the graphite bars" (p. 1).
