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."

Technical Concept-Operation Bren

Description: From Abstract: "The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Health Physics Research Reactor is to be attached to a hoist platform on a 1500-ft tower at the Nevada Test Site (NTS). The project is a continuation of the studies commenced in 1956 for evaluating the radiation doses of persons exposed to nuclear weapons, especially the residents of Hiroshima and Nagaski, Japan. Measurements will be made of the energy, angular, and spatial distributions of the radiation from the reactor."
