Rear face hardware replacement 105-B, D, DR, F, and H

Description: Prior to the use of venturis on the front of the B, D, DR, P, and H Reactors, much of the pressure and velocity heads developed by the 190 process water pumps were used in overcoming built-in frictional losses in the system external to the process tubes. As Reactor Technology was gained, changes were continually taking place. Venturis replaced orifices installed during original construction. Hydraulically efficient front nozzles, front pigtails, front adaptors, and a second generation of front … more

FUEL ELEMENT GRAPPLE AND FUEL ELEMENT HOLD-DOWN LATCH DEVELOPMENT--LARGE SGR FUEL HANDLING

Description: A fuel element hold-down device, which is an integral part of the fuel element assembly, was developed to lock reactor fuel to the bottom grid plate. Concurrently with the hold-down latch development, a fuel bandling machine grapple capable of setting, releasing, and checking the hold-down device was developed. (auth)

Campaign rework of Z-Plant material at Purex

Description: The Purex Plant has been requested to process Z-Plant MR and EPT solutions containing about 200 kilograms of plutonium in order to alleviate processing problem at Z-Plant and to reduce the inventory of MR and EPT rework. Campaign recycle of uranium through the main plant is recommended as an economical and effective means of reworking large quantities of Z-Plant plutonium solutions. This memorandum outlines process alternates and costs for reworking the solutions and itemizes specific recommend… more

PITA IP-27C: Part 2, Increased coolant flow, H reactor operational physics requirements

Description: A program for increasing the available coolant flow at the H Reactor has been proposed and supported by documentation. This Process Improvement Transition Authorization (being written in two parts) authorizes the initiation of an immediate phase of the program designed to increase total coolant flow by about 6,000 to 10,000 gallons per minute. Part I of this PITA describes in detail the limitations and requirements peculiar to Process Engineering aspects of the proposed modifications and is pre… more

Effect of Long-Range Interactions on Order

Description: Harrison and Paskin (HP) have calculated the ordering energy of β-CuZn using recent theoretical techniques of treating electron screening and Mott's polar model of an alloy. Good agreement is obtained between the calculated total energy of the order-disorder transformation and specific heat measurements. A consequence of the HP calculation is that the ordering energy is long-range and oscillates in sign. Walker and Keating recently measured the neutron diffuse scattering of β-CuZn above the cri… more

Light-Droven Cytochrome Reactions in Anacystis and Euglena

Description: The basic similarity in cytochrome physiology between Anacystis nidulans ad Euglena gracilis, strains Z, is impressive in view of their gross dissimilarities in size, structure, and pigment content. We have investigated the cytochrome reactions by sensitive spectrophotometric methods in order to gain some insight into the patterns of energy transfer from the various light receptors to the reaction centers involved in the two photochemical reactions of green plant photosynthesis and also to eluc… more

Manganese Poisoning - New Insights

Description: The heavy metal intoxications involving the brain may be divided into two groups: One, in which the offending metal is clearly a poison, such as mercury or lead; and a second, in which the offending agent is normally an essential constituent of the body. The latter category would include manganese poisoning, copper poisoning (or Wilson's disease) and, if some recent data are valid, Huntington's chorea, in which iron seems to have been implicated. Our interest in the second category of diseases … more

A Model for Current Reversal Chronopotentiometry with Kinetic Complications

Description: A model has been developed for the analysis of current reversal chronopotentiograms in systems where the electrode process is followed by a homogeneous second order reaction. The model is analyzed using the IBM 7094 digital computer programed in FORTRAN language. Working curved, derived with the aid of dimensional analysis, can be used to evaluate rate constants from experimental data. The electroreducation of uranium (VI) to uranium (V) with subsequent second order disproportionation of uraniu… more

Neutron Activation Analysis: Clinical and Biological Studies of Manganese

Description: A strong motivation for metabolic investigations of essential metals lies with the simple fact that these elements are primordial metabolites and building blocks of living matter, a truism largely forgotten today. Among them, the metals of the first transition group display high physical and chemical flexibility: They can concomitantly coordinate natural or artificial ligands; they can regulate electron and proton transport; they can act as catalysts or as cofactors to catalysis.

Past Analogue Multipliers with Field-Effect Transistors

Description: The solution time of analogue multipliers using field-effect transistors is investigated. This time is ultimately limited by the charging time of the field-effect transistor junction. In typical devices suitable for analogue multiplication the charging time is found to be about 10-20 nsec less than one percent. A four quadrant pulse amplitude multiplier circuit is described, whose solution time is equal to the field-effect transistor charging time.

Recent Studies on the Experimental Program Requirements for a Super High Energy Accelerator

Description: Brookhaven has sponsored a summer program to study possible experimentation with super-high-energy accelerators of ~ 1000 BeV and to examine the feasibility of colliding beam experiments. A group of about fifty physicists took part in this study program. These investigations are a continuation and supplementary to our previous studies at Brookhaven about two years ago.

The Use of Low Energy Radioactive Isotopes in The Examination of Paintings on Thin Supports

Description: The importance of the examination of paper and textile supported art objects by means of low energy X-rays has been ably discussed in the preceding papers of this session. The apparatus used for such radiography, however, has tended to be both expensive and confined to laboratory use. A lack of mobility arises from the weight and size of X-ray apparatus and the fact that its installation frequently requires shielding and special electric power lines. An inexpensive radiographic apparatus that r… more
