[Photograph of Anna Russell with Eugene Conley]

Description: Photograph of Anna Russell, an entertainer at North Texas State University. She sits at a piano, while beside her stands to Eugene Conley, tenor and Artist in Residence at North Texas from 1960 to 1978. The photo was taken about 1953, when both were in New York and both had the same booking agent. The photo was published 10 years later in the Campus Chat on February 8, 1963, as part of the publicity for Miss Russell's performance on campus.

BETA-RAY SPECTROMETER WITH REDUCED SPHERICAL ABERRATION

Description: Modern {beta}-ray spectrometers are based upon the concept, first introduced by Svartholm and Siegbahn in 1946, of focusing in both the radial and vertical directions. The theory of axially symmetric devices has been carefully studied by a large number of workers, culminating in the analysis, in 1956, of Lee-Whiting and Taylor. These last authors calculate aberrations through the sixth order and show that by appropriate choice of the magnetic field a spectrometer can be designed with a relative… more

Waste Management Program: Chemical Processing Department

Description: During the 18-year history of Hanford operations, a high degree of safety has been provided at reasonable cost by the storage of high-activity liquid wastes in underground tanks, by the percolation of low-activity liquid wastes (principally water) through the soil to the ground water, and by the adsorption or filtration of radioactive materials from gaseous effluents prior to their discharge to the atmosphere. Studies of the Hanford area indicate that current practices could be continued almost… more

Status of Harvey aluminum component evaluation: Production test IP-12-A

Description: About 298,000 OIIIN aluminum components were received from Harvey for evaluation after major steps were take in the vendor`s plant to upgrade product quality. This material met HAPO specifications and was comparable to Alcoa control components. Finished fuel elements (non-bumper and bumper) canned in the test and control components are tabulated by uranium core type and canning month. Non-destructive and destructive test data did not show any differences in clad fuel elements attributable to co… more

Test Results for Unrestrained Reactor, Gunbarrel-Nozzle Assemblies

Description: These tests were performed in accordance with a letter fran R. C. Breisch to J. R. Spink, May 7, 1962. An unrestrained gunbarrel condition was simulated for each of the standard process tube inlet assemblies for B,C and K type reactors. Primary objects of the testing were to obtain data on movement, pigtail damage, and effect on flow to the process tube in case of a Van Stone flange failure without key restraint of the gunbarrel. All test conditions were relative to actual conditions, but these… more

Interim report one to Production Test-IP-549-A, half-plant low alum feed water treatment at F Reactor

Description: A half-plant low alum water treatment test began at F Reactor on January 16, 1963 at startup from the scheduled January 3 tube replacement outage. The test, which was prompted by results obtained from a statistical analysis of fuel ledge corrosion attack, will demonstrate whether or not high alum feed is responsible for increasing the frequency of ledge corrosion attack on fuel element surfaces. The effect will be evaluated by comparing visual examination results obtained from normal production… more

Interim report 2: Production test IP-581-A half-plant high flocculation pH test at B Reactor

Description: A half-plant high flocculation pH test began at B Reactor on September 24, 1963. The purpose of the test was to determine whether operation of the water plant flocculation basins and filters at a pH higher than 7.0 with subsequent coolant pH adjustment to 6.6 is beneficial as far as radioactivity in the effluent is concerned. It is planned to increase the flocculation basin pH in steps to a maximum of 7.6. Although primarily an effluent activity test, fuel discharged after a metal cycle at each… more

Production reactor process tube film composition and radionuclide inventory studies. Status report

Description: The discharge of radioactivity from Hanford production reactors to the Columbia River has been studied for a number of years. The primary purposes of these studied have been to learn of the factors influencing production reactor effluent radioactivity concentrations and to develop methods for lowering the discharge concentrations of these radionuclides. In 1962 the Coolant Systems Development Operation (CSDO) began work on this program to determine the in-reactor film compositions and the inven… more

Preliminary report on CX-2 N-inner fuel tube number 1055-8

Description: The real cost of metallurgical examination of irradiated fuel elements is several times that of fuels before irradiation. Since post-irradiation study is necessary to determine the performance of prototype fuel designs in a reactor environment, complete physical characterization before irradiation provides an economical and efficient basis for comparing experimental data. Without such comparative study, unexpected damage to fuels in the reactor would be difficult, if not impossible, to interpre… more

Final report PT IP-513-C recalibration of horizontal control rods at H Reactor

Description: The control rod calibrations in the E-N core loading and in the natural uranium core with an E-N blanket yielded results which indicate that the controls are approximately 10 per cent less effective in an E-N core due to shadowing of the rod strength by the E-N lattice; it had been expected from theoretical, calculations that the E-N shadowing effect would be approximately 10 per cent. The tests thus indicate that there has been approximately 25 per effective rod calibration value since the 195… more
