DMM: A Multigroup, Multiregion, One-Space-Dimensional Computer Program Using Neutron Diffusion Theory. Part 1 - The Theory

Description: DMM is a program using one-space-dimensional multigroup diffusion theory to calculate the reactivity or critical conditions and flux distribution of a multiregion reactor. Calculations of fission-produced xenon and samarium and time variation due to production and depletion of isotopes are an essential part of this program. The adjoint fluxes may also be computed, and the program includes the calculation of the nuclear constaants from fairly simple input combined with a library of cross section… more

REACTOR FUEL WASTE DISPOSAL PROJECT-PERMEABILITY OF ROCK SALT AND CREEP OF UNDERGROUND SALT CAVITIES. Final Report

Description: A study was made of two problems of salt-cavity storage, namely, seepage of wastes out of formations and closure of cavities due to plastic flow of salt. The results indicate that both problems are negligible; bedded salt is more impermeable than dome salt. Kerosene was found to be nonreactive with dome salt whereas brine solutions showed some interaction. It is concluded that storage of radioactive wastes in salt cavities is feasible. (D.L.C.)

Analysis of E-N loadings

Description: Three E-N loaded tubes were dissolved, sampled and analyzed, starting November 9, 1960. The results of these analyses and an explanation of the methods used are the subject of this report. Each tube loading received an identification code in each facility in which it was processed. All of these codes are listed for future reference. Each batch of slugs was dissolved in a preflushed dissolver. When complete solution was indicated by a leveling off of the specific gravity, two 1 ml samples were t… more

Optimization Studies on Paste-Fueled Fast Reactors

Description: The reference design is an unmoderated, sodium-cooled reactor using a paste fuel of uranium monocarbide in sodium. The core is a cylinder 5 ft in diameter and 5 ft in height. An 18-in. thick breeding blanket surrounds the core, and an 18-in. thick graphite reflector surrounds the blanket. Various changes were made in the reference core to uncover any possible modifications for cost reductions and to evaluate the consequences of certain design modifications which might occur. Cases were studied … more

Aerodynamic Re-Entry Analysis. Task 2. Thermoelectric Generator Summary Report

Description: An analytical trajectory and aerothermodynamic analysis of a satellite containing a Task 2 thermoelectric generator was completed. A 300-statute mile circular polar orbit was used for this analysis and the launch was assumed to be from Vandenberg Air Force Base. Results of this study show that upon natural decay from a successful mission, the radio-cerium fuel will burn up in space at high altitude, thus only a very minor amount of radio cerium will be released to the stratosphere. A complete a… more

DISPERSION STRENGTHENING OF IRON-ALUMINUM BASE ALLOYS: A FEASIBILITY STUDY

Description: The feasibility of improving the mechanical properties at 1700 to 1800 deg F of oxidation-resistant Fe-Al-Cr alloys by means of a refractory dispersion was explored. A literature search was conducted, preliminary experimental determinations of properties of the alloy and its oxides were carried out, and certain mathematical relations between dispersion charaeteristics and metallurgical variables were derived. The results indicate that the alloys can be strengthened sufficiently by using a dispe… more

Final Report on the Pinot Experiment

Description: The Pinot Project was designed to provide some indication of the extent to which gases from a confined underground explosion in oil shale would migrate parallel to the bedding planes. At 0800 on Aug. 2, 1960, 946 lb of nitromethane was fired in shot hole No. 1. There was no visible damage to the mine adit or to any structure associated with cation of the extent to which gases from a confined underground explosion in oil shale would migrate parallel to the bedding planes. At 0800 on Aug. 2, 1960… more

Temperature Distribution, Moderator and Reflector Reactor Core

Description: Studies were made to determine revised moderator coolant flow requirements in the EGCR core for the latest design. The temperature distribution in the graphite columns was also determined. The total moderator coolant flow was calculated to be 24,024 lb/hr and 31,020 lb/hr for full power and maximum anticipated power, respectively. It was concluded that the maximum moderator temperature (1220 deg F average over the cross section), at full power operation, occurs near the peak heat flux at a loca… more

Optimum canning conditions for four-inch I & E fuel elements

Description: Because of difficulties in charging eight-inch fuel elements in bowed process tubes in the upper parts of the old reactors, IPD has requested that four-inch I & E fuel elements be provided for these tubes early in CY1961. Approximately 30,000 fuel elements of this design, Model OVN, will be required per year. Since most of these fuel elements will be charged in the upper fringe zones, they will be in-reactor for an extended period of time. For this reason, the quality of this material should be… more
