Conceptual Design of a Nuclear Ram Jet-Rocket Missile

Description: The conceptual design of a nuclear ram jet-rocket missile is preserved. This missile is a modified, scaled-up AC-210 nuclear ram jet carrying ammonia in the space enclosed by the spike and inlet diffuser. The payload may be a 10,000 pound thermonuclear weapon or equivalent weight of reconnaissance equipment plus local shielding as in the AC-210 missile. The payload for a missile of body size equivalent to the AC-210 will be reduced by the weight of ammonia.

Flight Determination of the Lateral Handling Qualities of the Bell X-5 Research Airplane at 58.7 Degrees Sweepback

Description: Memorandum presenting the Bell X-5 variable-sweep research airplane tested primarily at 58.7 degrees sweepback to determine the characteristics at transonic speeds of a fighter-type airplane with extreme sweepback. Some of the dynamic and static lateral stability characteristics have been discussed previously. Results regarding the lateral control, roll coupling, lateral problems at high lift, wing dropping, rudder oscillation at supersonic Mach numbers, and some pilots' impressions are also provided.

A Pilot Plant for the Reduction of Uranium Hexafluoride to Uranium Tetrafluoride with Trichloroethylene

Description: Pilot plant experiments are described in which trichloroethylene was used for the reduction of uranium hexafluoride to uranium tetrafluoride. After unsatisfactory preliminary results with liquid phase reduction, satisfactory results were obtained with a vapor phase reduction system. It was found that vapor phase reduction at approximately 450 deg F, produced a low density product which contained only small quantities of uranium(VI); sintering the uranium tetrafluoride in a hydrogen fluoride atmosphere increased the product density to approximately 3 g/cc. The reduction was essentially complete, and the effluent gas contained less than 1 ppm of uranium hexafluoride. The purity of the uranium tetrafluoride produced was equivalent to that of the uranium hexafluoride used as feed. A complete discussion is given of the operation of the various parts of the system.

Preflight and flight-test investigation of a 50-percent-magnesium 50-percent JP-4 slurry fuel in a twin engine ram-jet vehicle

Description: Report presenting an investigation conducted by means of preflight and flight tests to determine the performance of a 50-percent-magnesium 50-percent JP-4 slurry fuel in a twin-engine ramjet test vehicle. Data were obtained over a range of Mach numbers. Although a successful flight test was carried out, the performance obtained from preflight testing was below theoretical values.

Reactor transient

Description: The authors are planning a calculation to be done on the Univac at the Louviers Building to estimate the effect of xenon transients, a high reactor power. This memorandum outlines the reasons why they prefer to do the work at Louviers rather than at another location, such as N.Y.U. They are to calculate the response of the reactor to a sudden change in position of the half rods. Qualitatively, the response will be a change in the rooftop ratio of the neutron flux. The rooftop ratio may oscillate with high damping, or, instead, it may oscillate for many cycles. It has not been possible for them to determine this response by hand calculation because of the complexity of the problem, and yet it is important for them to be certain that high power operation will not lead us to inherently unstable operation. Therefore they have resorted to machine computation. The system of differential equations that describes the response has seven dependent variables; therefore there are seven equations, each coupled with one or more of the others. The authors have discussed the problem with R.R. Haefner at the plant, and it is his opinion that the IBM 650 cannot adequately handle the system of seven equations because the characteristic time constants vary over a range of about 10{sup 8}. The Univac located at the Louviers Building is said to be satisfactory for this computation.
