Progress Report No. 50 for the Period June 1, 1957 Through August 31, 1957

Description: Progress is reported in fission elements chemistry, organic and inorganic nuclear chemistry, cosmic ray research, high-energy accelerator experimentation and physics, bubble chamber experimentation, and theoretical physics. Considerable attention was given to the ionization of mineral acids and hydrogen haloraetallates in inorganic solvents and to anion exchnnge behavior in metal complexes. Studies of various chemical reaction mechanisms were continued. The self-energy of a Dirac particle coupled through its charge with the electromagnetic field was investigated without perturbation theory. (For preceding period see AECU-3580.) (D.E.B.)

Zirconium Hazards Research. Summary Report No. 3655 for September 1, 1956 to August 31, 1957

Description: The sensitivity characteristics of a variety of Zr samples such as sponge, scrap, powder and process materials were studicd. Of particular interest was the determination of the relative seasitivity of these materials to such stimuli as impact, friction, electrostatic discharge, and heat. A study of the zirconium--water reaction at relatively low temperature was initiated. In general, scrap and sponge were relatively insensitive to impact. Only one proeess material, the distillation residue, exhibited any pyrophoric tendencies in this test. As anticipated, the majority of the samples tested were somewhat sensitive to friction. The dry distillation residues and Ca-reduced Zr powders, which had frequency rates of 100% in most cases, were the most sensitive of all the samples tested. Sponge was moderately sensitive, but the variation in sensitivity could not be correlated with either particle size or chemical impurities. Neither the Zr or Zircaloy scraps in the form of chips and turnings were very sensitive. The maierial which proved to be most insensitive to friction was the vapor phase residue. A frequency rate of zero was noted for all the samples tested. Using a condenser discharge to heat wire samples rapidly in aa inert atmosphere to a temperature well above the melting point, an attempt was made to determine the effect of stress on the pyrophoricity of Zr. It was found that the minimum energy requirements for fragmentation of a pure Zr wire are reduced by the application of mechanically induced stresses and bv the addition of chemical impurities such as C and/or H/sub 2/, Although the experimental phase of the study of the zirconium--water reaction has been barely- initiated, there is some evidence to indicate thai pre-treatment of a sample with N, at elevated temperatures does promote the oxidation reaction with steam.

Analysis of two-stage-turbine efficiency characteristics in terms of work and speed requirements

Description: From Introduction: "In this report two-stage-turbine efficiency characteristics are analyzed as a function of work and speed requirements in terms of the effect of changing the required mean-section velocity diagram. The fundamental assumptions and limits used in reference 2 and 3 are also used herein."

Cyclotron resonance absorption by a hydrogen plasma

Description: From introduction: "The work described in this report was undertaken as part of an experimental study to determine the effectiveness of radiofrequency field in heating the ions of a hydrogen or deuterium plasma. The ultimate aim is to find a method of heating a deuterium plasma until an appreciable rate of nuclear reaction takes place."

Effects of Internal-Area Distribution, Spike Translation, and Throat Boundary-Layer Control on Performance of a Double-Cone Axisymmetric Inlet at Mach Numbers From 3.0 to 2.0

Description: Report presenting an investigation to determine the effects of initial subsonic diffusion rate, variable geometry, and throat boundary-layer control on the performance of an axisymmetric double-cone inlet. Major gains in performance at higher Mach numbers were obtained with boundary-layer control in the form of a ram scoop at the throat. Results regarding the effect of internal-area distribution, effect of spike translation, and effect of throat boundary-layer control are provided.

Utilization of the Surface Tension of Liquid Metals in Making High-Vacuum Seals

Description: Abstract: "The free energy (surface tension) of a liquid film can withstand atmospheric pressure across a maximum theoretical gap of 10-(-3) cm between solids if the liquid wets and bridges the sides of the gap continuously. The eutectic alloy of Ga, lm and Sm is used for this purpose. This alloy is molten at room temperature with surface tension > 500 dynes/cm, vapor pressure < 10-(-8) cm at 500 C and excellent wetting properties. This alloy can be utilized in valves, motion seals, flanged joints and for electrical contacts mounted in any position. Using ultrasonic soldering techniques without heat or flux this alloy is readily wetted on W, Mo, Ta, pyrex, quartz and certain ceramics. These materials will withstand the corrosive action of this alloy at at least 400 C. Some de-wetting has been observed with only the nonmetals at high temperatures. This de-wetting may be due to thermal decomposition of gallium oxide. Stainless steel is easily wetted, but is attacked at temperatures above 300 C. Copper and brass are attacked at room temperature."
