100-C water plant

Description: System curves for each portion of the C Area Water Plant were obtained from referenced work and are presented in figures. Field test data, corroborating the calculated curves, are presented as singular points on the same graphs. Present maxima capacity of the C Area Filter Plant was 121,000 gpm with 118,000 gpm available for use as primary reactor coolant. Modifications to the filter effluent piping would increase this available flow to about 180,000 gpm. Of the 118,000 gpm available for C Reac… more

1B HEAT EXCHANGER LEAK TEST. CORE I, SEED 1. Test Results

Description: Descriptions are given of various procedures used in determining leaks in the tubes of the 1B heat exchanger. Air pressurization tests determined leakage and leak rate of nine tubes. The leak-location-detector-probe method was found promising for locating defects along the length of the tube. Results of the probalog, dye-penetrant, and ultrasonic tests proved inconclusive in determining leak locations. (B.O.G.)

Analysis of the twelve two-ton test batches for the review of plutonium formation rates as a function of MWD

Description: The 12 batches were individually dissolved in Redox dissolvers. U and Pu were separated from the test solutions and purified for isotopic analyses. Results are tabulated; Am-241, Cm-242, and Np concentrations are also reported.

Analytical considerations for K-downcomer and bellows

Description: A free body diagram of the bellows will show the possibility of three forces -- one in each direction, three moments -- one in each plane, and the internal pressure. Any or all of these forces and moments may fluctuate due to variations in a driving force, e.g., separation of streamlines which creates slugging of flow through an elbow. Whereas the static equilibrium condition can be analyzed and stresses and strains computed, the dynamic condition cannot be approached without information on the… 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.

Artificial cooling of the Columbia River by dam regulation, 1960

Description: This report discusses benefits in an increase in the flow of water from the lower depths of the Grand Coulee Dam which was used to lower river temperature at HAPO. A net average daily reduction of over 1.2{degree}C resulted at HAPO with a peak of 2.7{degree}C. The Net Production gain from temperature change was 6910 MWD and the Cost of Control was: Grand Coulee Charges $3,120.00, and other (Estimated) 6,880.00 for a total of $10,00.00.

Atomic Energy Levels in Crystals

Description: Report discussing discrete energy levels observed within certain crystals which are due to perturbations of energy levels of the free ion by an electrostatic field arising from the crystal lattice. The analytic procedures for determining the field from the charge configuration are given, and the resulting fields are classified according to their symmetry. After a general survey of group-theoretical ideas, the applicable groups are analyzed in detail, and characters appropriate for both integral… more

[The audience for the debate]

Description: Photograph of the audience for the debate. The photo depicts a row of people in the audience. In the foreground are three women then there is a young child bent over with his elbow presumably on his knees while his hands folded and two of his fingers pointing up at his nose. Next to the child is three men all looking toward the debate. In the background, there is a cameraman sitting in a seat that is lifted into the air. The cameraman is looking through the viewer of the camera.

[Bob Stanley with Sophomore Reporting Class]

Description: Photograph of Bob Stanley, professor in the Journalism Department, sitting with sophomore students in a reporting class in 1961. In the image Stanley and the three students sitting with him are looking at a newspaper together. Stacks of newspapers can be seen in the foreground, more students are sitting at individual desks behind the central group. A bulletin covered with newspaper scraps fills the back wall.

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 Boron-Carbon System. Quarterly Report No. 3, November 1, 1960-January 31, 1961

Description: 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 metallogaphic and x-ray-diffraction studies it is concluded that boron carbide has a range of solubility from approximately 10 to 20 at.% carbon at 1500 to 2000 deg C. The melting point of the carbide-graphite eutectic was established as 2325 to 2350 deg C. No reversible allotropy of the beta -rhombohedral structure was observed… more

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 allotr… 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.

BUILDUP OF Cf$sup 252$ AND INTERMEDIATE ISOTOPES FROM Cm$sup 244$ IN A HIGH FLUX

Description: The amount of Cf/sup 252/ and intermediate isotopes which could be made from Cm/sup 244/ in a reactor with high neutron flux was calculated. The variations of different isotopes formed in the bombardment as a function of time are described by a series of linear differential equations. The cross sections used were either weighed measured values or values estimated from the amounts of curium and californium isotopes formed in irradiations of heavy elements. The number of atoms of heavy curium iso… more
