REMOTELY CONTROLLED SHEARING OF PIPE AND STRUCTURAL MEMBERS

Description: A shearing tool was developed for remotely controlled severing of pipes or structural members. The shear is rotated about its axis in a wrist motion by the pumped hydraulic fluid that also powers the shear blade. It can be used in a stationary mounting or suspended from a crane. A C-shaped support for the shear was designed to pass through a small top opening of a shielded cell. The controls for manipulating the shear pass through or along the Cframe. The shear jaw opens to 5 in. in height and … more

The Sideband Technique In A Variable Frequency NMR Spectrometer

Description: The purpose of this Note is to point out the advantages of the sideband technique over the derivative method in wideline NMR spectroscopy. In the sideband technique the absorption spectrum is recorded directly and the modulation amplitude is no longer a determining factor in the resolution.

Salicylic Acid as a Reagent for the Spectrophotometric Determination of Beryllium

Description: 1. The reaction between beryllium salts and salicylic acid was studied by the spectrophotometric method in the ultra violet portion of the spectrum. The optimum pH value for this process was found to be 9.0 to 9.5. 2. Two independent methods showed that beryllium and salicylic acid form a compound in the ration 1:2. The instability constant was determined for the a complex of the formula (Be OH Sal2)3- names (4.9 +- 0.6) x 10-18. 3. The stability of the complex and the availability of the reag… more

A Survey of the Hazards Involved in Processing Liquid Metal Bonded Fuels

Description: A survey of the character and magnitude of hazards involved in processing liquid metal bonded fuels was made and the scope of a preliminary experimental program outlined. Processing of SRE and CPPD fuels by mechanical decladding followed by controlled reaction of the collected methods. Simdlarly, shearing of PRDC fuel and controlled exposure of the Na in the severed portions to water appears more desfrable than chethical dissolution of the metallic cladding. (auth)

A Solution of the Distributional Error Problem in Cytophotometry

Description: Use of that portion of the characteristic curve of photographic film in which transmission is linear with log exposure eliminates the distributional error and thus makes possible the assessment of total mass of an inhomogeneously distributed cell consistent without scanning or measuring the cell's projected area. Measurement consists of obtaining the difference in output of a photocell receiving the total light transmitted by a photomicrograph of the cell, and a photomicrograph of the microscop… more

Some Metallurgical Applications of Autoradiography

Description: Macro- and high-resolution methods for autoradiography were used to investigate a number of problems concerning the distribution of uranium and other active elements in metal specimens. Illustrations are presented of the behavior of some of these materials with various henting and cooling treatments and in the presence of metals with which intermetallic phases are formed. Techniques are discussed for handling and examining autoradiographic stripping films by means of various types of metallurgi… more

100-C water plant

Description: System curves for each portion of the C Area Water Plant were obtained from referenced work and are presented in figures. Field test data, corroborating the calculated curves, are presented as singular points on the same graphs. Present maxima capacity of the C Area Filter Plant was 121,000 gpm with 118,000 gpm available for use as primary reactor coolant. Modifications to the filter effluent piping would increase this available flow to about 180,000 gpm. Of the 118,000 gpm available for C Reac… more

A Status Report on Reactivity Coefficients in Fast Reactors and Methods of Investigating Their Effects on Reactor Stability

Description: BS>Methods for predicting the stability of fast reactors in the presence of both positive and negative reactivity coefficients are surveyed. Experimental methods of determining reactor stability are reviewed: excursion, transient, and oscillator. Sources of reactivity coefficients are discussed for both zero power and nonzero power operation. Representative reactivity coefficient values are presented, and positive coefficients due to Doppler effect, fuel bowing, and sodium coolant expansion are… more

Alpha Particle Radiolysis of Anion Exchange Resins

Description: Technical report. From Abstract : "Irradiation of 'Dowex' 1, 'Permutit' S-1, and 'Permutit' SK anion exchange resins with alpha particles results in losses in ion exchange capacity and in 'apparent per cent crosslinkage'. The order of decreasing radiolytic stability for these properties in 'Permutit" SX > 'Permutit' S-1 > 'Dowex' 1."

Neutron Dosimetry in and Around Human Phantoms By Use of Nuclear Track Emulsion

Description: The power of nuclear track research emulsion as a fast neutron dosimeter is examined in the exposure of a human phantom to PuBe neutrons. Semiautomatic track scanning and high-speed data analysis obviate the major disadvantages of this dosimeter, and allow the following basic information to be obtained without a serious cost in time: the rulative proton recoil energy spectrum, the absolute differential proton track den sity spectrum, and the average proton recoil energy at various locations in … more

Evaluation of Kanigen, Electroless Nickel Plating for Steam Side of a Sodium Component Steam Generator

Description: Introduction: This is a final report on the evaluation of Kanigen electroless nickel plating for surfaces in contact with water and steam i a sodium heated AISI Type 316 stainless steel steam generator. The purpose of the coasting was to afford protection from stress corrosion cracking originating on the water-steam side of the unit. It has been concluded that the kanigen coating does not afford adequate protection for the services condition intended. This work was performed as part of the r… more
