CORE REMOVAL COOLING SYSTEM-SECTION II. CORE I, SEED I. Test Results T- 641113. Section 2

Description: A test was performed on June 19, 1959 to determine the capacity of the Core Removal Cooling System for removing reactor decay heat under split-flow'' conditions. The system operated satisfactorily during this test; the pumps developed a flow of approximates 73 gpm at a total head of 254 ft water, as compared with their rated capacity of 75 gpm at a total head of 250 ft water.

Research and Development Studies on Waste Storage Process

Description: The basic objectives of this program were the determination of the thermal stability of various fission product oxides and nitrates, and an investigation of the gas phase decomposition of ruthenium tetroxide. To accomplish these objectives, a literature survey was flrst made of available physical and chemical data for the oxides and nitrates of Cs, Sr, Ru, Zr, Nb, and Ce. The data were supplemented by a calculation of thermodynamic functions for RuO/sub 4/ vapor from the experimentally determined infrared spectrum and the theoretically calculated raman-active fundamentals. Data are presented graphically. (C.H.)

Safety review of Nuclear Fuel Manufacturing Operations: Fuels Preparation Department

Description: Subsequent to a recent comprehensive review of the safety of Hanford`s reactor operations, a request was received from the Hanford Operations Office for a similar review of manufacturing processes within the 200 and 300 areas. Of particular concern were the non-reactor-oriented nuclear and radiological hazards involved in these operations, as well as the administrative procedures by which they were controlled. This report, which reviews these elements of safety of operations within the Fuels Preparation Department was accordingly prepared. Many individuals throughout the Department and Hanford Laboratories Operation contributed to this study.

Analysis of the stored energy distribution in D-reactor

Description: The purpose of this document is to characterize, as completely as possible, the stored energy distribution in D Reactor as of March 1958, the date of the last stored energy survey and to estimate the temperature rises which can be expected to occur during a stored energy release. D Reactor was chosen for this study only because it represents one of the oldest operating Hanford reactors and not because of any circumstances peculiar to this reactor. 14 refs., 13 figs.

Thermal Stability of Gadolinum Nitrate Solution at High Temperature

Description: During a feasibility study of auxiliary shutdown systems for the Spert II and Spert III reactor facilities, salts possessing high neutron absorption cross sections were considered for use in water soluble poison injection systems, and gadolinium nitrate appeared promising. Tests were carried out in a high pressure static autoclave to determine the stability of gadolinium nitrate solution at elevated temperature. At temperatures of 300 deg F and above, the solution decomposed with formation of a white precipitate. It was concluded that gadolinium nitrate is unsuitable for use as a soluble poison in high temperature, watermoderated reactor systems. (auth)

SOME PROPERTIES OF BERYLLIUM OXIDE

Description: S>The primary objective of the literature search was to determine the best values for the properties involved in the thermal stress parameter. Comparison of data from various investigators indicates that thermal expansion of beryllia is independent of density. A wide variation was found in the thermal conductivity values of beryllia. Graphs and tables are presented which summarize and compare data from various sources. A bibliography of 53 references for some of the major items of the stress parameter (thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, and modulus of elasticity) as well as for general properties of beryllia is given to books, journals, and reports published from 1914 to 1960.
