The A.A.E.C. Atmospheric Pressure Heat Transfer Rigs

Description: This technical report describes two atmospheric pressure rigs with associated equipment designed for investigating heat transfer and friction characteristics of different type of "roughened" surfaces to develop suitable surfaces for an H.T.G.C.R. fuel element. Operating details are given together with techniques used to measure heat transfer and friction on a surface assembly incorporating selected "roughened" surfaces. Methods for calculating Stanton numbers, friction factors, and Reynolds num… more

An Analogue Solution of a Reactor Perturbation Initiated by a Metallurgical Phase Transformation of the Fuel

Description: The analysis of a reactor model that is thermally nonlinear is presented. The significant sources of feadback in the closed-loop model ane dilatational changes of the fuel due to axial expansion caused by temperature and metallurgical phase changes. Ths dynamics of this phenomenon has been represented on the Pace electronic analog com puter. The model was subjected to unusually large inputs of sinusoidal power and did not show any drastic tendencies toward being unstable. (auth)

Annual Report 1961

Description: This seventh Annual Report is a summary of some of the progress in scientific and engineering research and development carried on at Argonne National Laboratory during 1961. As is customary in this series, only those portions of the total program that have reached such a stage that they may be of general interest are recorded. Thus, a comparison with the Annual Reports for 1959 (ANL-6125) and for 1960 (ANL-6275) will reveal the description of a generally different set of scientific activities. … more

The Application of Inert Fluidized Beds to the Volatility Reprocessing of Reactor Fuels

Description: In the reprocessing of spent solid fuels from nuclear reactors by direct volatilization, one of the major problems is the removal of heat from the highly exothermic gas-solid reactions. The use of fluidized beds of inert granular material as heat transfer media to control these exothermic reactions forms the basis of one approach to volatile reprocessing which is under development at BNL The engineering scale work carried out under this development program is discussed.

Broad Range Spectrograph for Use With the Rochester 27" Cyclotron

Description: "A broad range nuclear spectrograph of the Buechner-Bainbridge type, which characteristic radius R-50 cm. has been constructed and installed for use in conjunction with the Rochester 27" variable energy cyclotron. For a given magnetic field, particles are focused over an energy range 0.63o‹E‹1.3Eo, where Eo is the energy of particles focused with orbit radius Q-R-50 cm. The resolution of the spectrograph ∆E/E is less than 0.2%. Particles may be recorded either in nuclear emulsions or in an arr… more

The Calculation of Nonlinear Radiation Transport by a Monte Carlo Method

Description: A monte Carlo method of solving the one-dimensional equations of nonlinear radiation transport is compared with the Sn "characteristics" method of solution. It is concluded that the Monte Carlo method is accurate and stable and furthermore for a given time-cycle length and space-zone size the Monte Carlo method is more accurate than the Sn method.

A calculation to simulate the underground Bernalillo shot

Description: From abstract: "Detailed calculations were undertaken in an attempt to explain some post-shot observations of the underground Bernalillo shot. A procedure was developed to calculate with a one-space dimensional code both the flow of energy up and down the hole and the energy loss into the walls of the hole."

CHARACTERISTICS OF RADIOACTIVITY PRODUCED BY NUCLEAR EXPLOSIVES

Description: The amounts and kinds of radioactivities produced by detonation of a nuclear explosive are dependent upon the specific design of the explosive. The two design extremes are a pure fission device, which will produce about 1.4 x 10/ sup 23/ fissions, and therefore about 2.8 x 10/sup 23/ fission products, per kiloton of energy released, and a pure thermonuclear device which would produce no fission products, but would produce approximately 10/sup 23/ atoms of tritium per kiloton. In both cases, int… more

Chemistry of Anhydrous Systems Containing Hydrogen Fluoride and Nitrogen Oxides

Description: Nitrosyl and fluoride ions are formed in liquid anhydrous hydrogen fluoride when nitric oxide, nitrogen sesquioxide, nitrogen tetroxide, or nitrosyl fluoride, are dissolved. Vapor infrared analysis was used to study the solution composition and gaseous reaction products. These solutions react with metallic uranium, plutonium, zirconium, iron, and aluminum, as well as ceramic uranium oxide and uranium carbide, forming soluble nitrosyl metal fluoride complexes and liberating nitric oxide. The ura… more
