Radioisotopic heat sources. Revision 1

Description: For the radioisotopes with half-lives over a year, only eight appear to be obtainable in the foreseeable future. The fission products, strontium-90, cesium-137, and promethium-147, exist in wastes from reactor processing, diluted with enormous volumes of other elements and salts. Among those isotopes producible by irradiation of special target materials (cobalt-60, uranium-232, plutonium-238, and curium-244) cobalt-60, though easy to produce, requires a special design for the heat source genera… more

Activation of electrical machinery. Supplement 1. [Preliminary evaluation; not applicable to ground tests]

Description: The following analysis of the induced radioactivity in SNAP-50/SPUR electrical machinery having a high cobalt content is submitted. Induced radioactivity in the flight vehicle will contribute negligibly to allowable radiation levels. This is especially so due to the low neutron to gamma ratio of assumed radiation damage tolerances to semiconductors. A calculation to estimate the order of magnitude of induced radioactivity in cobalt is attached. The calculation is based on a best guess of the ne… more

Proposed Redox sand filter monitor and stack monitors

Description: The purpose of this January, 1963 report is to review existing Redox exhaust gas sampling equipment and to propose modifications and additions where appropriate. A study was conducted to determine what modifications, if any, should be made to the Redox exhaust gas sampling equipment to improve their present methods of monitoring for excessive amounts of fission product activity.

COMPUTER DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM. PROJECT ROVER, 1962

Description: ABS>A system was created for processing large volumes of data from Project ROVER tests at the Nevada Test Site. The data are compiled as analog, frequency modulated tape, which is translated in a Packard-Bell Tape-to-Tape converter into a binary coded decimal (BCD) IBM 7090 computer input tape. This input tape, tape A5, is processed on the 7090 by the RDH-D FORTRAN-II code and its 20 FAP and FORTRAN subroutines. Outputs from the 7090 run are tapes A3, which is a BCD tape used for listing on the… more

A DISCUSSION AND BIBLIOGRAPHY OF CURRENT LITERATURE CONCERNING VAN ALLEN BELTS FOR USE IN SNAP SPACE ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES

Description: Discussion of theories on particle motion in electric and magnetic fields precedes examination of theories on the source of the inner and outer Van Allen belts. Theories for the inner belt propose solar cosmic ray injection and galactic cosmic ray injection as the source of the protons. Neutron albedo is particularly examined but seems to be unaccountable for the proton belt. Neutron albedo and injection from the sun are also considered as possible sources of the electrons in the outer belt. Fl… more

Correlation of Liquid Fraction in Two-Phase Flow With Application to Liquid Metals

Description: A generalized correlation for the liquid fraction in twophase flow is presented which is proposed for use with all iluids, including liquid metals. The correlation is based on isothermal, two-phase, two-component liquid fraction data for liquid Hg--N/sub 2/ and water-air. Liquid fraction is shown to be a function of the Martinelli flow modulus and liquid/gas density and viscosity ratios. Good correspondence is indicated between the liquid fraction predicted by this correlation and the Martinell… more

BEAM TRANSPORT CALCULATIONS USING GRAPHS

Description: The spread of a beam of particles can be represented by an ellipse in phase space, which represents the spread of the beam in both angle and distance. It is shown that the changes in this ellipse can be followed simply by graphical means, as the beam passes through an optical system consisting of thick and thin lenses and drift spaces. Such calculations are of value when an injected beam must be matched to an accelerator, or when a beam of particles from an accelerator must be transported to an… more
