The Decontamination and Recovery of Precious Metals

Description: "This report is the third quarterly report under Contract AT(30-1)-2528 for the decontamination and recovery of precious metals from contaminated scrap. The results described in [2nd quarterly report] and expanded in this report confirm the statement that the method achieves not only the desired decontamination but also produces a product of high purity. In addition the relative simplicity of the method makes it particularly adaptable to large scale manipulation."

Utilization of Radiactive Isotpoes in Coal Process Research

Description: "This is the fourth Quarterly Report on Task II dealing with Methods Development for Radio-Tracing of Coal Product Hydrocarbons With Tritium. The problem of radio-chemical purity of traces is resolved by developing a new method of labeling with tritium that generates essentially no highly tagged side products or impurities."

Utilization of Radiactive Isotpoes in Coal Process Research

Description: "This is the third quarterly report on Task II dealing with Methods Development for Radio-Tracing of Coal Product Hydrocarbons With Tritium. The problem of accurate low-level tritium assay for tagged hydrocarbons has been resolved and attention is now primarily directed at the questions of tritium mobility and radio-chemical purity in tagged tracers."

A Study of the Mechanism of Radiation Induced Gelation in Monomer-Polymer Mixtures

Description: "The degree of equilibrium swelling of low density polyethylene by various di- and tri-functional monomers has been experimentally determined. Non-extractable portions of irradiated monomer-polymer and monomer-free-polymer samples have been determined by refluxing in a Soxhlet extractor. Irradiated, monomer-free polyethylene samples that give a non-extractable portion after Soxhlet, refluxing dissolve by direct immersion in the same hot solvent.

A Study of the Mechanism of Radiation Induced Gelation in Monomer-Polymer Mixtures

Description: "Polyvinyl chloride degrades quite badly under irradiation due to the ease of splitting out HC1. The incorporation of polyfunctional monomers, however, has been found to lower the radiation doses required for gelation below those which result in degradation. Thus, gelation of polyfunctional monomer-polyvinyl chloride mixtures has been achieved quite readily."

A Manual of Experiments in Reactor Physics

Description: Nuclear processes are random in character, and, accordingly, are amenable to statistical treatment. In 1905, shortly after the discover of natural radioactivity, E. Von Schweldler showed that the analytical description of the decay distribution of radioactive substances followed from probability considerations regardless of the mechanism involved in the process of atomic disintegration.

Coolball, a Machine Code for Thermal Analysis of Pebble Bed Reactor Cores

Description: COOLBALL is an IBM 650 machine program designed to calculate local gas and ball temperatures, gas flow, and pressure loses as induced by non-uniform power generation and voidage within an axial flow Pebble Bed Reactor core. This code has been used extensively to study the thermal characteristics of Pebble Bed Reactor cores in support of a broad program for the development of the PBR concept.

Fuel Element Development Program for the Pebble Bed Reactor

Description: Previous results from the Pebble Bed Reactor Fuel Element Development Program had shown the excellent promise of vapor-deposited Al2O3 doq5intw on UO2 particles as a low permeability high temperature fission product barrier. However, since the matrix material for the PBR fuel element is a graphite sphere, carbonaceous coatings on the dispersed fuel particles might be of more interest because of improved particle coating-matrix compatibility and no displacement of neutron moderating materials. Since a pyrolytic carbon coating also appeared to be low permeability higt temperature material, emphasis was placed on the development of pyrolytic carbon coated UC2 particles dispersed in a graphite sphere as the reference PBR fuel element.

Diffusion of Krypton Through Uranium Carbide - Final Report

Description: This program was established to develop new information concerning the mechanism of diffusion of fission gases (krypton and xenon) through UO2 and UC. The work was to concentrated on measurements of diffusion rates in unirradiated materials in the temperature range of 1000°C to above 2000°C, these determinations being important to the projected use of refractory fuel materials in high-temperature, high-burnup reactors.

The Study of the Potential Applications of Radioisotope Technology to Water Resource Investigations and Utilization

Description: The study which has been carried out under Contract AT(30-1)2477 has as its objective the review of all work which has been done on the application of radionuclear techniques to research in water resources and supply, the evaluation of this work, and the suggestions of specific experiments which must be performed if these applications are to be extended.

A Systematic Study of (p,xp) Reactions in the 100-400 MEV Region

Description: (p,xp) reactions are those nuclear reactions induced by high energy protons in which both the mans and the charge of the target nucleus are reduced by x-1 units. The most common type of these reactions to be expected in the 100 to 400 Mev region involves the exclusive emission of protons as a results of the interactions. The specific (p,xp) reactions investigated in this study were those where 2 is less than or equal to x where x is less than or equal to 5.
