A Computer Program to Optimize Magnets in a Beam Transport System*

Description: A computer program which optimizes the locations and strengths of magnets in a beam transport system has been written for the IBM 704 and 7090 computers Programs have been previously written which trace a ray through a system of magnets and determine its focusing properties When using such a program, one examines the characteristics of the emergent beam and then varies the parameters of the system manually to optimize it In the program which will now be described, the computer itself performs t… more

Invention Report - Development of a Solution to Oxidize and Dissolve Uranium Metal and Its Oxides

Description: Decontamination of a high-temperature pressurizedwater reactor core- coolant recirculation system following a fuel element cladding failure requires the dissolution of uranium oxides + uranium metal. An oxalic--peroxide-peracetic solution was developed which was found to be superior to other solutions for this task. The solution composition is: oxalic acid, 2.3 g/l: sodium oxalate, 32.0 g/ l; hydrogen peroxide, 15.0 g/l; 8-quinolinol, 1.0 g/l; and 40% peracetic acid, 12.5 g/l. 8-Quinolinol supp… more

Production of Void and Pressure by Fission Track Nucleation of Radiolytic Gas Bubbles During Power Bursts in a Solution Reactor

Description: The Kinetic Experiment on Water Boiler (KEWB) reactor is a 50-kw aqueous homogeneous research reactor which was designed to study the safety characteristics and dynamic behavior of this class of reactors. When the reactor is placed on a short-period power transient, its aqueous uranyl sulfate fuel solution becomes rapidly supersaturated with H/sub 2/ gas produced by the radiolysis of water. At a critical gas concentration, fission track nucleation of H/sub 2/ bubbles occurs. The rapid formation… more

Acceleration of Deuterons or Alpha Particles in the AGS

Description: The magnetic field of the AGS ring can contain particles of magnetic rigidity about 34 Bv/c. This includes not only protons of kinetic energy 33 Bev, but also 32 Bev deuterons, 64 Bev alpha particles, and conceivably heavier nuclei such as 188 Bev carbon nuclei. It will be shown in this paper that such nuclei can be injected and accelerated in the AGS if some rather small modifications are made in the injection and acceleration systems. What physics could be done with such beams? Several types … more

Chemical Processing Technology Quarterly Progress Report, July-September 1962

Description: Aqueous zirconium fuel processing studies, directed at adapting the hydrofluoric acid process to continuous dissolution-complexing in order to increase the capacity of the ICPP process, resulted in two successful approaches to the complexing-feed adjustment step. Continuous in-line adjustment (conversion of uranium(IV) to uranium(VI) necessary for extraction) was accomplished in one minute or less at approximately 90 deg C; surges of dissolver product from the operating dissolver up to 1.9 time… more

HAPO IB Fission Product Shipping Cask Design Evaluation Report

Description: As a result of the interest in fission products for use as heat sources and/or radiation sources, in early 1960. Hanford was authorized to supply a semi-refined cerium-144 rare earth product to Oak Ridge National Laboratories. Facilities were installed for collecting this product and a cask war designed for shipping this product as a stabilized, dry powder. Since that time, numerous improvements have been made in the design of the HAPO I cask as described in Revision O of this document. In add… more

HEAVY ELEMENT ISOTOPIC ANALYSIS OF UO$sub 2$ FUEL IRRADIATED IN THE VBWR. Report No. 1

Description: Slightly enriched UO/sub 2/ fuel, irradiated in the Vallecitos Boiling Water Reactor (VBWR), with exposures ranging from 100 Mwd/t to 3200 Mwd/t was analyzed for heavy element isotopic composition and compared with computed data. The primary objective of this program is to obtain improved data on the changes in nuclear characteristics with burnup of UO/sub 2/ fuel in a boiling water reactor. This information is important in both evaluating the economics of a given reactor design and also in pro… more
