Bobcat (Program No. 56) Code Preparation Analysis on the IBM-650

Description: The BOBCAT code that is programmed for the IBM650 is described. The code facilitates the nuclear analysis of APPR-type cores by performing many of the routine calculations necessary to obtain input to various IBM-650 and IBM-704 codes. Using fuel element geometry and U/sup 235/ and B/sup 10/ loadings as input, the code prepares input to the MUFT-III and various P/sub 3/ codes as output; in addition, a large amount of detailed descriptive core data that is useful in nuclear analysis calculations… more

Calculated Transient Pressures Due to Impulse and Ramp Perturbations to Ventilating Systems in Buildings 3019, 3026, 3508, and 4507

Description: As part of a general hazard review survey conducted by the Chemical Technology Division of its facilities, transient pressures due to impulse and ramp perturbations to the cell ventilating systems of buildings 3019, 3026, and 4607 and the closed glove box system of 3508 were calculated. From the portions of the pressure curves above atmospheric pressure, volumes of gas outleakage were estimated; thus the amount of activity released can be calculated if an estimate of the activity concentration … more

Calibration Of Bridgman Anvils, A Pressure Scale To 125 Kbars

Description: It is shown that a radial pressure gradient exists in the silver chloride when it is used as the pressure transmitting medium in Bridgman anvils. The gradient can be obviated by the use of circular sections of wire. The center of curvature of the wire hoop is made coincident with the anvil center. When the inner and outer diameters of the pyrophyllite retaining ring are 1/2 and 7/16" respectively, the pressure, P, is P = (0.725 + 0.468R) L where R is the fractional displacement from the center,… more

CLOSE-CAPTURE ABSORPTION SYSTEM FOR REMOTE RADIOISOTOPE CHEMISTRY

Description: Molecular sieves are used as the basic adsorber in a close-capture air recirculation system designed primarily for remote operation with master-siave equipment. A compact evaporator-dissolver unit provides a vessel for dissolution of an Al slug containing the radioactive material and provides an evaporator head under which volume reduction may be carried out within a specially prepared centrifuge cone. One movable condenser serves both operations. Resistance films of Pt provide heat for the cen… more

Close-Capture Adsorption System For Remote Radioisotope Chemistry

Description: Molecular sieves are synthetic zeolites which, when dehydrated, contain a network of empty pores and cavities that constitute almost 50% of the total volume of the crystals. They have the unique property of adsorbing within these cavities only those molecules that are small enough to pass through the pores of the crystals, Molecular sieves have a very strong affinity for water and other polar molecules. It is this selective property plus their stability and reasonable cost that make them of int… more

THE COEFFICIENT OF VOLUME EXPANSION FOR WATER AND WATER VAPOR IN THE CRITICAL REGION. Technical Report No. 6

Description: A tabulation is presented of the coefficients of volume expansion for water and for water vapor along eleven isobars in the critical region encompassed by pressures from 3000 to 4000 psia and temperatures from 690 to 750 deg F. Graphical techniques were employed to derive these values from precise P-V-T data. The over-all error in the derived values of the volume expansion coefficient was estimated to be within 5%. However, in the region of maximum values for the coefficient of volume expansion… more

The Crystal Structure Of Cobalt Sulfate Hexahydrate

Description: Calorimetric measurements by Rao and Giauque (1960) showed some unaccountable residual entropy in crystals of [formula] at low temperatures. We have investigated the crystal structure in search of an explanation of the disorder. The resulting structure offers no possibility of disordered rings of hydrogen bonds such as were found in [formula], nor do we find any other explanation of the entropy discrepancy.

The Development and Evaluation of Graphite-Matrix Fuel Compacts for the HTGR

Description: >A summary of development and evaluation of graphitematrix fuel compacts for the high-temperature gas-cooled reactor is presented. The fuel compacts consist of Th-- U dicarbide particles dispersed in a high-density graphite matrix and are produced by a hot-pressing process. Compacts prepared from Th--U oxide, Th-- U silicide, and Th--U dicarbide coated with pyrolytic C were subjected to radiation and fission-product-retention testing. Results of these tests are included and are discussed in det… more

Development of Niobium-Uranium Alloys for Elevated-Temperature Fuel Applications

Description: As a continuation of studies reported in BMI-1400, fabrication characteristics, physical and mechanical properties, and corrosion behavior in NaK, sodium, and water of niobium--uranium binary alloys containing up to 60 wt.% uranium were investigated. Alloys were cast by a skull melting and consumable and nonconsumable arc-melting methods. Fabrication difficulties with alloys containing greater than 25 wt.% uranium were related to coring-type microsegregation during casting. Tensile tests indica… more
