An Analysis of Inconsistencies in Removal Cross Sections of Carbon and Oxygen

Description: Abstract. Some recent analysis of certain Lid Tank fast neutron dose rates measured in oil and water indicates that there are some basic inconsistencies with reported oxygen and carbon removal cross sections and the reported data. These inconsistencies may be explained in several ways: (1) The reported carbon removal cross section is wrong. (2) The reported oil composition is wrong. (3) The reported oxygen removal cross section is wrong since it is based on an assumed rather than a measured oil composition. (4) Some of the experimental data are wrong. It is not possible to determine which of the above is most likely on the basis of analysis alone but the possibilities are pointed out and, based on the assumption that all the experimental data are correct, it appears most likely that the oil composition assumed in ORNL 2197 was in error.

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.

The Boron-Carbon System: Final Technical Report, May 1, 1960 - April 30, 1961

Description: Abstract: The boron-carbon equilibrium diagram has been determined by X-ray, metallographic, and thermal analysis of sintered and arc-cast alloys. A single carbide having a range of solubility from approximately 9 to 20 a/o carbon and melting congruently exists in the system. The terminal solubility of carbon in boron is 0.1-0.2a/o. The freezing reaction at the composition and melting temperature of elemental boron; there is a eutectic reaction at 29a/o carbon and 2375 degrees Celcius. No allotropy of boron was observed.

The Boron-Carbon System: Quarterly Report Number 3, November 1960 - January 1961

Description: Abstract: A definitive investigation of the boron-carbon equilibrium system is being made by X-ray diffraction, metallographic, and thermal analytical techniques. On the basis of metallographic and X-ray diffraction studies it is concluded that boron carbide has a range of solubility from approximately 10 to 20 atomic per cent carbon at 1500 degrees to 2000 degrees Celsius. The melting point of the carbide-graphite eutectic has been established as 2325-2350 degrees Celsius. No reversible allotropy of the beta-rhombohedral structure has been observed. The solubility of carbon in boron is very small. The melting point of dilute carbon alloys is found to be essentially the same as that of pure boron (2040 degrees to 2050 degrees). No metallographic evidence of a three-phase reaction of dilute alloys is observed.

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, NOUF₆, was made volatile by passing nitrosyl fluoride gas over the dry salt at 500 deg C.

Effects of Insulin of Hepatic Glucose Metabolism and Glucose Utilization by Tissues

Description: The mechanism whereby insulin lowers the blood glucose concentration is currently under extensive investigation. Despite the general agreement that the addition of insulin increases glucose uptake by various isolated tissues, the question has been raised whether administered insulin produces its blood sugar lowering effect in vivo primarily in increasing glucose uptake. Furthermore, it has been suggested that physiologically-released insulin may not exert the same effects as are produced by administered insulin. Attention has also been focused on whether insulin (exogenous or endogenous) exerts its action mainly or entirely on the liver and to what extent insulin influences glucose uptake and glucose production by the liver. The studies to be reported are a continuation of earlier work and are concerned with the effects of insulin, both exogenous and endogenous, on glucose utilization by the tissues and glucose production by the liver under various dietary condition in the unanethetized, intact dog, using C¹⁴ glucose.

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, April 15 to June 15, 1961

Description: Abstract: "This program is a study of the basic variables that affect electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols of submicron size,especially below 0.1[mu]. The variables of interest are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, and initial charge. During this period research was concerned with classifying particles as small as 0.01[mu]. This research included work on an aerosol generator for monodispersed 0.015-[mu] gold particles. The performance of the charger was further improved by studying its basic electrical characteristics. Tests with the electrostatic classifier showed very clearly the interference due to the stabilizer material associated with polystyrene latex suspensions. These suspensions are used to produce monodispersed aerosols for calibration."

Description: Introduction: "This program is a study of the basic variables that affects electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols of submicron size, especially below 0.1 micron. The variables of concern are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, and initial charge. During this period optimum charger design was studied. The results will serve as a basis for a systematic study of particle charging. A number of improvements were incorporated into the classifier flow system and electrical circuits. The technique for photographing deposits in the electron microscope was also improved, and sample photographs are included."
