Heat-Shielded Magnetically Channeled Plasma Heat Converter

Description: A design for a thermionic converter is described which utilizes a permeable heat shield and a homogeneous magnetic field normal to the cathode and anode surfaces to minimize the radiant power loss without appreciably decreasing the electrical power output. The permeable heat shield consists of thin, close- spaced foils perpendicular to the cathode and anode surfaces. Radiant power transfer is expressed as a function of the spectral emissivities of the cathode and anode surfaces and the interfoi… more

Evaluation of Gas-Graphite Suspensions as Nuclear Reactor Coolants. Final Report

Description: ALL survey was made of experimental and theoretical work pertaining to the use of a suspension of graphite particles in a gas as a nuclear reactor coolant. Following a general review of the state-of-the-art and a detailed study of recent experimental data, it was concluded that present theoxy and experimental data are encouraging but inadequate as a basis for reactor design. Especially lacking are both theoretical and experimental work defining the hydrodynamic and thermal requirements for prev… more

Analytical Method for Inline Plutonium Analyses

Description: Laboratory studies demonstrated the feasibility of a colorimetric method for the in-line analysis of plutonium(III) and plutonium(IV) in the Purex process. Negligible interference was caused by normal variations in the concentration of nitric acid, nitrous acid, or ferric sulfate. (auth)

ANHARMONIC POTENTIAL CONSTANTS AND THEIR DEPENDENCE UPON BOND LENGTH

Description: Empirical study of cubic and quartic vibrational force constants for diatomic molecules shows them to be approximately exponential functions of internuclear distance. A family of curves is obtained, determined by the location of the bonded atoms in rows of the periodic table. Displacements between successive curves correspond closely to those in Badger's rule for quadratic force constants (for which the parameters are redetermined to accord with all data now available). Constants for excited el… more

Remote Plastic Bag Passout Unit for High-Level Radiochemical Operations

Description: A system is designed for making remote sealed-bag passouts from a multicurie-level chemistry processing enclosure. The polyethylene bags are changed remotely without exposing contaminated surfaces while always maintaining a low leak rate seal. The system employs an interchange box (passout box) attached to the chemistry enclosure. Integrated with the box is a hydraulically operated jack that raises and lowers the bags, and a welder-cutter for sealing them. A single master-slave manipulator team… more

Dimensional Behavior of the Experimental Gas-Cooled Reactor Fuel Element at Elevated Temperatures

Description: The Experimental Gas-Cooled Reactor (EGCR) fuel assemblies consist of a cluster of seven fuel elements contained in a graphite sleeve. Each element is composed of hollow cylindrical UO/sub 2/ pellets encapsulated in a type 304 stainless steel tube. The dimensional behavior of the fuel element was determined in an apparatus which simulated the thermal conditions predicted for the EGCR. Particular emphasis was placed on determining the relationship between the fuel temperature and axial expansion… more

MAGNETIC FIELD MEASUREMENTS IN A CYLINDRICAL PINCH TUBE

Description: Magnetic field measurements in a cylindrical linear pinch tube with probes are described. Tests are performed with a discharge current frequency of 20 kilocycles in nitrogen at an initial pressure of 0.1 mm Hg. Initial capacitor voltage is varied from 1000 to 5000 volts. The magnetic field distribution, the radial current distribution, and the current density in the pinch tube are described. The discharges are concluded to be symmetric above 2000 volts. The symmetric discharges have distinct ch… more

AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF HIGH-FLUX FREE CONVECTION HEAT TRANSFER TO WATER UP TO NEAR-CRITICAL CONDITIONS

Description: An investigation was made to increase the basic knowledge of nucleate and film boiling heat transfer to fluids up to their critical pressures. An extensive literature survey of the subject indicated a scarcity of consistent data and an absence of proven methods for analysis. This situation led to the design and construction of experimental apparatus suitable for measuring rates of free convection heat transfer and associated temperature differences for fluid conditions up to 4000 psi and 800 de… more

Development of a Ti-Al-Cb Alloy for Use at 1200-1800 F

Description: >Titanium-base alloys containing major amounts of Nb and Al are being studied to develop new high-temperature alloys of low density. Findings derived from the preparation and examination of quaternary alloys containing small additions of Sn, Hf, or Zr; high-purity ternary alloys, and ten-pound melts of Ti-l5Nb-10A1 and Ti-l7.SNb-l5Al are presented. In a number of alloys, improved tensile properties and oxidation resistance resulted from the addition of Sn, Hf, or Zr, and in some instances very … more
