Strontium Program: Quarterly Summary Report, May 29, 1959

Description: From Abstract: "This report is one of a sequence of quarterly reports, each designed to up-date its predecessor beginning with HASL-42, "Environmental Contamination from Weapon Tests". Herein are presented data which have accrued since HASL-55. Levels of strontinum-90 in fallout, milk, air, water, vegetation, foods, and bone are given, based on data available from February 1, 1959 to May 20, 1959."

The Scattering of Thermal Radiation Into Open Underground Shelters

Description: From Introduction: "The elimination of the burn hazard in shelters depends upon a separate, systematic investigation of each suspected agent. The purpose of the present investigation was to evaluate the contribution made by radiant energy and, if such contribution proved to be significant, to suggest means of eliminating this component."

A Structural Analysis of The Brothers Karamazov

Description: The purpose of this thesis is to reveal the structural unity of The Brothers Karamazov through the isolation and analyzation of the various techniques used by Dostoyevsky to unify the novel. In order to retain more than a few impressions and remembrances of outstanding events, in order to retain the novel itself, the reader needs to be aware of the structure of the work. If the fullest realization of the novel depends upon the reader's perception of its structure, the structure becomes the important critical element.

Army Gas-Cooled Reactor Systems Program Monthly Progress Report: April 1959

Description: Abstract: This monthly progress report covers the activities of the Army Gas-Cooled Reactor System Program for April 1959. The program includes a water-moderated heterogeneous reactor (Gas-Cooled Reactor Experiment I), a graphite-moderated homogeneous reactor (Gas-Cooled Reactor Experiment II), a mobile gas-cooled reactor (ML-1), and the coordination of the Gas Turbine Test Facility. [It reports] the progress of each project, the associated tests and data evaluation, the applicable design criteria, and the fabrication of reactor components" (p. 1).

Scram transient tests PT-IP-249-C

Description: The purpose of this production test is to provide a standard method of obtaining scram transient reactivity information at the eight reactors, under conditions conducive to valid data. These conditions include the bypassing of the Panellit system at a low power level for a short, controlled period of time during May 1959.

Elimination of TOA corrosion limits

Description: In 1958, planned large scale use of the new I & E slug geometry at more severe operating conditions than had been generally experienced suggested a possible compromise in reactor life and safety if a reasonable degree of rupture control with the new type of element was not maintained. The formalized slug corrosion limit (Top-of-Annulus limit) was issued as a Process Standard at the time of the full-scale loading of I & E geometry fuel elements to provide this limit for reactor operation. The loading of I & E slugs at all reactors has been accomplished and initial power level increases have been made. To date, 67 I & E ruptures have been sustained including both `hole` and `annulus` failures. The type and behavior of ruptures to be expected with I & E geometry are now characterized. Recent studies have indicated that the I & E failure experience is consistent with the general mathematical rupture model formulated from analysis of solid slug experience. Increased confidence in the use of this model in combination with Optimization Studies permits greater emphasis to be placed on the rupture model as a guide for reactor operation. It is the purpose of this report to present the basis for substituting the rupture model for the TOA corrosion limits for rupture control purposes.
