RADIOLOGICAL PHYSICS DIVISION SEMIANNUAL REPORT FOR JULY THROUGH DECEMBER 1959

Description: An investigation of the emission spectrum from radiation-daniaged xylene led to the conclusion that no gross corrections are needed for xylene when used as a scintillation solvent. Data are included from measurements of nonradioactive energy transfer in p-xylene and diphenyloxazole organic scintillation solutions. Measurements were made of the energy resolution of a twinscintillation fast neutron spectrometer. Accurate values of electron drift velocity in purified noble gases and nitrogen were … more

THERMAL STRESS TESTING OF SM-2 FUEL ELEMENTS. Interim Technical Report for January 1, 1959 to January 1, 1960

Description: Thermal stress testing was performed on two fuel plates, one cut from a brazed SM-1 dummy fuel element and the other from a TIG Welded SM-2 reference element. The test specimens were subjected to transverse temperature differences of up to 200 deg F, and distortion and strain at various locations were measured. The effect of the thermal stress was to increase the amplitude of original distortions. Adddtional distortions due to thermal stress were proportional to temperature differential and to … more

ISOTOPIC METHOD FOR AGE DETERMINATION OF INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS. Quarterly Progress Report, July-September 1959

Description: >The materials and methods used for the long-term nuclide pairs are essentially the same as those previously described. (April - June Report). The split planchet method was used to determine the resolving time of the tracerlab superscalar counting apparatus which is currently in use. A planchet was split in two and a sample of nuclide placed in each half and counted. From these results a formula for calculating true counting rates was evolved. Data on resolving time loss for the Superscalar are… more

Improved coolant backup 100-B, D, F, DR, H and C areas design study

Description: Preliminary engineering studies have indicated the need for modifications and improvements to the reactor coolant backup systems of the old areas in order to provide adequate safety of operation at power levels programmed for the future. These evaluations of the coolant backup systems were based on the recently adopted reactor cooling safety criteria. It was concluded that the secondary coolant systems would be adequate in capacity and reliability for the proposed future operating conditions ex… more

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING DIVISION SUMMARY REPORT FOR JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH 1960

Description: Chemical-Metalluaical Processing. A direct-cycle fuelreprocessing plant using pyrometallurgical procedures is being designed as part of the Experimental Breeder Reactor No. II project. The reduction of uranium oxide was investigated, using pure Mg and solntions of Mg in Zn and Cd. Cadinium solntions of U were shown to be stable in Types 405 and 410 stainless steel containers at temperatures up to 550 deg C. The liquid metal corrosion loop in which a U-Mg--Cd alloy is being circulated at 550 deg… more

An Improved Nuclear Density Gauge. Quarterly Report No. 2 Covering Period September 1 to December 1, 1959

Description: Techniques for improving stability of scintillation counter chopper systems and their development for use in industrial control applications are being investigated. Tests are being performed to determine the causes of fluctuations. An integration and frequency converter is being developed in which the anode current of the photomultiplier tube is alternately switched between two integrating condensers by action of a commutator switch. The voltages developed across the two condensers are proporti… more
