Multipurpose scintillation camera

Description: The scintillation camera is a nonscanning instrument for displaying the distribution of radioactive isotopes. It can be used, for example, to show abnormalities in the thyroid gland with I-131, the size, shape and location of kidneys with Hg-203 Neohydrin or to locate brain tumors either with Hg-203 Neohydrin or with the new positron emitting agent, Ga-68 EDTA. For many applications, the scintillation camera has higher sensitivity than conventional isotope scanners, and will produce pictures in… more

Tory II-C performance as a function of flight mach number and inlet pressure recovery

Description: In a parameter study involving thrust vs. flight Mach number, M.D. Mintz has found that net jet thrust becomes a maximum at about Mach 3.66 if the Tory II-C design value of inlet pressure recovery is used at all Mach numbers. This is not a realistic situation, however, because the attainable pressure recovery decreases markedly with increasing Mach number. The effect of more realistic pressure recovery values are presented in this paper. Two sets of values were employed, which differ by two per… more

Porosity gain from increase in core radius and fuel mass in Tory II-C

Description: A set of calculations has been done to determine the amount by which the volume of solid material in a Tory II-C core can be reduced with respect to the total core volume. Three separate problems were studied. In each case, some change was made which by itself would increase the K[sub eff] of the reactor. Then, in order to keep K[sub eff] unchanged, a certain amount of core material was removed. The calculations were done by means of the one-dimensional neutronic diffusion code ZOOM. The base p… more

Investigation of impulsively loaded pressure vessels

Description: Explosion containment vessels for containing from 2,000 to 3,000 five ton nuclear explosions are considered. Analysis methods appear adequate and lowest weights using the most advanced materials available in the next five years are projected.None of these materials can be fabricated today and all require extensive development. Present material technology limits the choice of materials and defines the weight. The addition of safety factors and fixtures (nozzles, etc.) will add to this weight con… more

Tory II-C off-design performance

Description: This memorandum reports the performance of TORY II-C at off-design altitudes and Mach numbers. Inlet pressure recovery has been varied with Mach number, reasonable values for a real inlet having been chosen. Nozzle throat area and exit area have been fixed at the design values. Hence this study can be used, in conjunction with missile drag data, to construct a flight envelope.

Increasing the capacity of the Tory II-C Side Support System

Description: The Tory II-C lateral suspension has been designed for 4 g`s of lateral acceleration of the duct. Calculations and model tests indicate that this requirement has been met or exceeded. In order to have a more realistic model to test, Tory II-C springs are going to be fitted around the full scale core slice which was previously built up. Instrumented accelerations of this assembly should give the most direct demonstration that is possible of the response of the system to flight. This memorandum d… more

Control rod studies

Description: This study was undertaken to answer questions asked regarding the required rod stroke for control of modified Tory II-C reactors. All problems described were solved with the Angie code and based on Tory-II-C design problems, RZ 501 and RZ 502, representing hot and cold reactors respectively.

Cryogenic targets for electron scattering

Description: Over the past few years we have developed a system which allows several different liquid hydrogen and liquid deuterium targets to be placed in the electron beam of the Stanford Mark III accelerator and which can be operated from a remote position. The geometry of our scattering chamber requires that the motion (of the various targets into position) must be in the vertical direction, but that the overall height of the system be constant. These requirements are met by using an internal retractabl… more

STUDIES IN CONTACT MICRORADIOGRAPHY

Description: Recent developments in techniques for low-voltage radiography have found application for the examination and evaluation of minute details in small or thin specimens. Utilization of x-ray tubes and helium chambers with thin windows for maximum transmission of soft x rays and bare film with dark-room exposure techniques have allowed very high contrast radiographs to be produced on low-contrast materials. These conditions, coupled with very high resolution photographic emulsion detectors, have res… more

I. THE THEORY OF ABERRATIONS OF QUADRUPOLE FOCUSING ARRAYS. II. ION OPTICAL DESIGN OF HIGH QUALITY EXTRACTED SYNCHROTRON BEAMS WITH APPLICATION TO THE BEVATRON

Description: In Part One they formulate in a general way the problem of analyzing and evaluating the aberrations of quadrupole magnet beam systems, and of characterizing the shapes and other properties of the beam envelopes in the neighborhood of foci. They consider all aberrations, including those due to misalignments and faulty construction, through third order in small parameters, for quadrupole beam systems. One result of this study is the development of analytic and numerical techniques for treating th… more

Deviation of the Test Program and Procedures for the 710 Critical Experiment Reactor Related to Changes in the Core Material Volume Fractions

Description: This document describes a deviation from the "Test Program and Procedures for the 710 Critical Experiment Reactor Loading and Rod Calibrations," TM-63-1-702, which was made in accordance with ITS Standard Practice J80-81 on March 13, 1963. The deviation did not involve a significant change in the safety of the operation.

Chloride Deposition From Steam Onto Superheater Fuel Clad Materials

Description: Experimemts using Cl/sup 36/ in a steam test loop were conducted to study the deposition behavior of chlorides on BONUS superheater fuel assembly materials. The moisture content of the steam was varied between 0 and 0.5 wt%, and superheat was added up to 15 deg F before the steam passed over the test cartridge heater. The effects of vaiiables on the chloride deposition on the heater were studied in detail. Chloride deposition from moist steam was found to result in heavy, adherent deposits whic… more

INSTRUMENT FOR DETERMINING CRUSHING STRENGTH OF PARTICLES

Description: An instrument for crushing-strength determinations of uncoated and pyrolytic-carbon-coated fuel particles (50 to 500 mu in diameter) was developed to relate the crushing strength of the particles to their fabricability. The instrument consists of a loading mechanism, load cell, and a power supply-readout unit. The information that can be obtained by statistical methods of the data analysis is illustrated by results on two batches of fuel particles. (auth)
