Determination of the Six Turbulent Reynolds' Stresses by the Hot Wire Method for Arbitrary Intensity and Geometry with Special Application to Axisymmetric Flow

Description: A relationship is derived the mean square fluctuating current of a hot wire anemometer and the sic turbulent Reynolds stresses in the stream-coordinate system without employing the usual low turbulent intensity approximation. The relatively simple result is a consequence of assuming proportionality between the wire current reading and the perpendicular velocity component instead of the non-linear dependence required by King's law. The assumption is valid for instruments equipped with the proper… more

HFIR Beryllium Reflector Preliminary Design Report

Description: This report considers the HFIR reflector design criteria and presents a summary of the reflector design. The reflector type chosen as complying best with the established criteria consists of a 3 in. thick removable beryllium annulus utilizing four concentric cylinders with cooling water flowing through the annuli between cylinders, and an outer 9 in. thick permanent beryllium annulus with axial circular coolant holes. Reflector support structures and experimental facilities are described and pr… more

Apparent Observations Ionic Sound Waves in an Arc Plasma

Description: Oscillations have been observed in a magnetically supported cylindrical rod of plasma. This rod of plasma can be the discharge occurring in the defining aperture of a Mode II, pressure gradient arc. Similar oscillations can also occur in the column of a Mode I arc. These oscillations appear to be the mechanism that drives the Mode II blowup phenomena.

Fuel-Cycle Analysis and Proposed Fuel and Burnable Poison Distribution and Loading for the HFIR and HFCE-2

Description: Further calculations have been made to determine the desired radial fuel distribution in the HFIR and in the forthcoming HFIR critical experiment. In the process the design of the core was changed to include a 1-cm-thick annular space of water between the two nearly equally thick fuel annuli, a metal-to-water ratio in the fuel annuli of 1.0 (0.050 in. thick plates and coolant channels ) was specified, and the active length of the core was increased from 18 to 20 in. Results of the calculations … more

Thermal Cycling Test of 3 1/2-in. and 4-in. Freeze Flanges

Description: A total of 104 thermal cycles between 250°F and 1350°F were imposed on a 3 1/2-in. and a 4-in. freeze flange to determine their susceptibility to thermal fatigue. The flange clamping arrangement was modified and various gaskets were used during the cycling in an effort to reduce the gas leakage problem.

Generalized Heat Conduction Code for the IBM-7090 Computer

Description: The IBM-70% code GHT has been programmed for the 7090computer, to be run under control of the IBM-7090 FORTAN Monitor System. By eliminating the use of tapes for intermediate number storage, it has been possible to reduce computing time by a factor of 26 over the 704. A minimum of three tapes are required; one for input, one for output, and the System tape. One scratch tape is required for transient problems, and one punch tape is required if the steady-state temperature distribution is to be p… more

Equilibrium Adsorption of Krypton and Xenon on Activated Carbon and Linde Molecular Sieves

Description: Equilibrium krypton and xenon adsorption isotherms were obtained for four varieties of charcoal and for Linde Molecular Sieves Types 4A and 5A, generally at 0, 25, and 60°c. Such data are of interest in connection with design and evaluation of adsorbers for radioactive noble gas fission products. The isotherms were fitted, by linear regression analysis, to straight-line forms of the Freundlich and Langmuir equations. The Freundlich linear equation gave the better fit and the parameters of this … more

Processing of Beryllium Oxide Fuels

Description: Preliminary results from experiments on the dissolution of beryllium metal and sintered UO2-BeO fuel pellets are reported. In all cases the pellets were fired in hydrogen at 1650-1800°C. Uranium, from UO2-BeO pellets containing more than 60% UO2, is readily leached with boiling 6-13 M HNO3 in about 6 hr. The BeO in these pellets dissolves only slowly in nitric acid; however, in 8 M HNO3-0.2M NaF, it dissolves at about the same rate as the UO2. Sintered pellets containing less than 10% UO2 do no… more

A Useful Solution for Short Cylindrical Shells and Other Applications

Description: The general solution to the basic differential equation d^4w/dy^4 +4w= -4f(y) is transformed from the primary form treated in most texts to an alternate form in which each integration constant corresponds to one edge condition at y=0. The relationships between the integration constants of the two forms are derived and the values for the transformed functions are tabulated. The particular solution is derived in general and given in unique form for various functional forms of f(y). Matrix notatio… more

Fission Product Release from UO2 and by High Temperature Diffusion and Melting in Helium and Air.

Description: The experimental demonstration of fission product release from over heated reactor fuel is necessarily subject in many respects to the arbitrary conditions imposed by the experimenter. Since an almost infinite latitude exists in the choice of materials, atmospheres, gas, velocities, temperatures etc., some allowance for an extrapolation to alternate conditions is definitely in order. The conditions imposed in this study are best described as those most likely to maximize fission product release… more

Bond Energies, Valence State Energies And Resonance¹,²

Description: Previous attempts to interpret chemical structure in terms of x-electron resonance have been recently criticized. A reinterpretation of the lengths of the C-C bonds in terms of orbital radii has not revealed any effects of x-electron resonance in the ground states of classical molecules such as 1, 3-butadiene, methyl acetylene, etc. Even in a non-classical molecule such as benzene, resonance shortening of the CC bond is only in terms of the strengths of the hybrid orbitals. If the lengths and f… more

The Infrared Spectra Of Marginally Metallic Systems, Sodium-Ammonia Solutions

Description: The sodium-ammonia solution system permits investigation of an array of compositions spanning the transition from non-metallic to metallic bonding. Reflection spectra in the range 1-20 [ ] were measured for solutions of mole ratio 5.5 to 168 [ ] per Na. The dilute solutions show peaks characteristic of the vibrations of ammonia and a strong peak near 1.5 [ ] which is assigned to the solvated [ ] species. Concentrated solutions show high reflectivity over broad wavelength ranges. The results for… more

Bremsstrahlung

Description: An electron can suffer a very large acceleration in passing through the Coulomb field of a nucleus, and in this interaction the radiant energy (photons) lost by the electrons is called bremsstrahlung (also, bremsstrahlung sometimes designates the interaction itself). If an electron whose total energy [formula] traverses matter of atomic number Z, the electron loses energy chiefly by bremsstrahlung. This case is considered here.

Effects Of A Magnetic Field On Natural Convection In A Toroidal Channel

Description: The problem of the natural convection of an electrically and thermally conducting fluid within a long, narrow, vertical toroidal channel centered in a large block of an electrically and thermally conducting solid is analyzed. A uniform horizontal magnetic field is applied to the fluid, and the bottom of the solid block is maintained at a higher fixed temperature than the top. The laminar steady-state single-cell convective motion of the fluid is considered and an approximate solution is found f… more

Orbital Radii, Bond Length And Resonance

Description: The radius of a c-p hybrid orbital has been found to be given by the expression: [formula] where A is the radius of the pure p orbital, B, a universal constant equal to 0.336 A, and [ ], the coefficient of mixing in the hybrid s + [ ]. When radii appropriate for the orbitals that are paired together are used, bond length is additive of the orbital radii and no Schomaker-Stevenson correction is necessary. This shows that most bonds can be treated as covalent, single and localized.
