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)

ARGONAUT REACTOR DATA-BOOK. A compilation of experimental and theoretical results of work done with, or related to, the Argonaut Reactor to July 1960

Description: This compilation was prepared to provide a comprehensive unified summary of the principal elements of the design, operation and nuclear characteristics of the Argonaut Reactor. Its primary content is made up of the theoretical and experimental evaluations of basic reactor parameters, both static and kinetic, which have been made to this date. The Databook includes also some practical information on the reaativity worths of fuel, moderator, and absorbers, as well as some data on radiation in the reactor vicinity. A list of Argonaut type reactors in all countries and a bibliography of Argonaut work are included. (auth)

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, interaction of escaping neutrons with the materials of the device itself, and with the surrounding media, could lead to further radioactivities. The behavior and ultimate fate of the activities produced by the explosion depend on the composition of the medium in which the detonation occurs, the nature of the detonation, and the chemical species involved. Some typical cases are described. (auth)

The Chemical Thermodynamic Properties of Hydrocarbons and Related Substances: The Use of n-Heptane as a Reference Substance for Low-Temperature Calorimetry

Description: From Introduction and Summary: "This bulletin presents the results obtained n-heptane by the petroleum thermodynamics laboratory of the Bartlesville, Okla., facility. Detailed results of five investigations are given; selected values if the low-temperature thermal properties are tabulated; and comparisons with results that were obtained in other laboratories are made. The findings of this extensive study will serve to characterize the low-temperature thermal data for over 100 compounds that will be presented in a later bulletin of this series."

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 uranium compound identified as nitrosylium hexafluorouranate, NOUF/sub 6/, was made volatile by passing nitrosyl fluoride gas over the dry salt at 500 deg C. (auth)

Contributions to the Data on Theoretical Metallurgy: [Part] 14. Entropies of the Elements and Inorganic Compounds

Description: From Introduction: "The present bulletin covers data available through September 1959 and is a further elaboration and revision, made desirable by the fact that nearly 1,300 entropy values for inorganic substances at 298.15 degrees K. now are known as compared with 800 in the 1950 publication, which covered data available through October 1948. The present bulletin contains the currently pertinent explanatory matter that appeared in its predecessors."

COSTS OF NUCLEAR POWER

Description: The discussion on the costs of nuclear power from stationary plants, designed primarily for the generation of electricity. deals with those plants in operation, being built, or being designed for construction at an early date. An attempt is made to consider the power costs on the basis of consistent definitions and assumptions for the various nuclear plants and for comparable fossil-fuel plants. Information on several new power reactor projects is included. (auth)
