[UNT's first University Day, 1961]

Description: Photograph of the first University Day celebration at UNT on May 10, 1961. In the bottom portion of the photograph, the Green Brigade Marching Band can be seen performing with their backs turned to the camera. A large crowd is covering the rest of the photograph, facing the band. A group of people are standing on a stage to the right of a banner that reads, "ΔΣΦ N.T.S.U. May 10, '61 ΔΣΦ." Another banner that reads, "University Day -- Wednesday," is hanging on the Memorial Student Union in the top right portion of the photograph.

Supplement A to PT-IP-263-A-FP evaluation of chemically nickel plated fuel elements

Description: Irradiation of the initial test in this program involving ten tubes of alternately charged nickel-plated C-64 alloy clad test elements and X-8001 alloy control elements has been successfully completed. The test indicated that the nickel-plate spalling problem has been resolved as no significant spalling or flaking was observed during the post-irradiation examination. The second test in this program will be to verify the performance of nickel-plate with a pilot loading (up to 100 charges) of fuel elements which have been nickel-plated on a production basis. The objectives of this test are to demonstrate with a larger scale test that nickel-plate performs satisfactorily and that reducing the nominal plate thickness from .6 mil to .2 mil will not affect the performance of the nickel-plate fuel element. This test authorizes the irradiation of up to 100 columns of OIIN, chemically nickel-plated, C-64 alloy jacketed fuel elements to 200% of normal goal exposure to extend the evaluation of nickel-plated fuel elements on a pilot scale at DR Reactor. Seventy columns will be plated to a nominal thickness of .6 mil and thirty columns to a nominal .2 mil thickness. Twenty measured columns, ten representing each plate thickness, will be charged to monitor the irradiation performance. Effluent samples will be obtained during the course of the test from a pair of tubes, each tube containing a measured monitor charge representing each plate thickness.

Neptunium-237 content of E-metal

Description: An analytical program was carried out to obtain an accurate single point measurement of neptunium-37 content versus exposure for E-metal. Two large volume dissolver solution samples representing E-metal from the KW, KE, C, and DR reactors were obtained from the Redox Plant for the basis of analysis. The neptunium-237/U ratio was determined by direct analysis, and the exposure was estimated from the measured Pu/U ratio and the uranium-235 burn-out.

Final report on production test IP-289-I, Supplement 1, H reactor export flow test

Description: The raw water export system forms the last ditch water supply system to the ``O`` and ``C`` type reactors; in the event of electrical and steam power failure, the export system is designed to supply enough raw water coolant. After the original export orifice was modified twice, the export system was retested.

PT-IP-344-A-FP, Evaluation of Al-Si bond characteristics

Description: Tests in which aluminum-jacketed, Al-Si bonded uranium fuel elements were baked at various temperatures have shown there is a time-temperature relationship for Al-Si layer decomposition. For heat transfer and secondary coolant barrier considerations, the extent of bonding layer deterioration during fuel element irradiation is important. Currently, Al-Si bonded fuel elements show evidence of spire bond separation, and to a lesser degree, can-bond separation following irradiation. Such evidence has aroused concern for the ability of the currently produced Al-Si bonded fuel elements to withstand future reactor operating conditions. Several potential uranium fabrication and canning process improvements are being developed to further advance fuel element stability and performance. Optimization of process conditions based on these improvements may provide the necessary margin of safety for good bond layer integrity, but before a decision can be made to continue improvement of the present process or convert to a new canning process, more information on the stability of the present fuel element bond is needed. This report presents the irradiation phase of a test which was designed to more fully evaluate Al-Si bond integrity under anticipated future reactor conditions.

D-Reactor Graphite Burnout Interim Report: IP-25A(PT-105-532-E)

Description: The oxidation rate of the moderator in D-Reactor has been monitored from samples placed along the length of process tube channel 3478. During the interval from August 8, 1960, to August 10, 1961 were very high, up to 40%/KOD (1000 operating days). From the shape of the front-to-rear burnout profile, the oxidant appears to be oxygen and/or water.

Summary of the Operational Status of Reactor Control Instrumentation, Report No. 2

Description: The purpose of this review is to report the operability status of the reactor control instrumentation. The status of the instruments was determined twice during the first six months of this year, April 1 and June 1. The information contained in this report is not intended to be a complete description of the control instruments, but only as they apply to reactor control. The assigned Pile Physicist at each reactor reported the status of instrumentation at his reactor. Chart I summarizes the operability status of the various instruments. Chart II shows the relative range of reactor power over which these control instruments apply. Appendix II contains a functional description of the instruments and Appendix III lists how each instrument is used during reactor operation.

Proposal for charging heat treatment test elements GEH-10-44 & 45

Description: The objective of this irradiation is to determine the differences in irradiation behavior; typified by dimensional changes, surface roughness, and overall distortion; resulting from elements of similar fabrication history but different beta heat treating schedule. The fuel will be the inner tube only of an NPR fuel assembly. Both elements were heated in chloride salt at 730C; one was rapidly quenched and the other air cooled to obtain a wide variation in grain size and structure and residual stress.
