Acute Gamma Irradiation of Quercus Seed--Its Effect on Germination and Seedling Growth

Description: Dormant seed of Quercus alba and Quercus rubra were irradiated with gamma rays from Co/sup 60/ to determine the efiect on cytological and morphological expression in the resulting seedlings. Investigations included varying moisture content and physiological state of the seed prior to treatment, and preliminary evaluation of induced mutation. The following observations were made. The lethal radiation exposure was the same for both species although there were differences in germination within the… more

The AECProgram of Atmospheric Radioactivity and Fallout Research

Description: From Health Physics Society 8th Annual Meeting, New York, June 1963. The Atomic Energy Commission's research program on atmospheric radioactivity and fallout is reviewed. The main purpose of the research program is to provide an increasingly complete and sound scientific basis for the prediction of radiation doses to man that may result from the introduction of radioactive material into the atmosphere. Techniques and computation models for making such predictions are discussed. Emphasis is plac… more

Analysis of the Reactivity Characteristics of Yankee Core I

Description: The reactivity characteristics of the operating Yankee Core I are analyzed. Calculations of kinetic parameters, kinetic coefficients, control rod and boron worth, core lifetime and burnup rate, and fission product poisoning, are described. A large amount of experimental data obtained during Core I operation is included and comparisons are made between prediction and experiments. (auth)

Automatic Exit Steam Quality Control for Boiling Water Reactors

Description: From American Nuclear Society Meeting, New York, Nov. 1963. The need for control of the flow distribution and/or steam quality in boiling reactors is discussed. A quality control device is being developed which consists of an entrance venturi and an exit venturi for measuring the flow rates into and out of the channel, means for comparing the two flow rate signals, and a value for regulating the flow rate. This device can be used either as a constantquality device or as a controlled-quality dev… more

THE AVERAGE ENERGY AND ANGULAR MOMENTUM REMOVED FROM Dy COMPOUND NUCLEI BY NEUTRONS AND PHOTONS

Description: Excitation functions are presented for many heavy-ioninduced (HI) reactions that produce Dy/sup 149/, Dy/sup 150/, and Dy/sup 151/. Projectiles were C/sup 12/, N/sup 14/, N/sup 16/, O/sup 16, O/sup 18/, F/sup 1 9/, and Ne/sup 20/ of 4 to 10.4 Mev per amu. The reactions studied are all of the type (HI,xn), where x ranges from 3 to 9. A large fraction of the total reaction cross section is accounted for by these (HI,xn) reactions --9/10 at approximately 45 Mev to 1/2 at approximately 105 Mev. An … more

THE AXISYMMETRIC FREE-CONVECTION HEAT TRANSFER ALONG A VERTICAL THIN CYLINDER WITH CONSTANT SURFACE TEMPERATURE

Description: Laminar free-convection flow produced by a heated, vertical, circular cylinder for which the temperature at the outer surface of the cylinder is assumed to be uniform is analyzed. The solution of the boundary-layer equations was obtained by the perturbation method of Sparrow and Gregg, which is valid only for small values of the axial distance parameter xi ; and the integral method of Hama et al., for large values of the parameter xi . Heat-transfer results were calculated for Prandtl numbers (… more

BUBBLE DENSITY MEASUREMENT WITH THE HOUGH-POWELL DIGITIZER

Description: The maximum likelihood method is applied to HoughPowell Mark I flying spot digitizer bubble density measurements on bubble chamber tracks. The probabilities that a bubble will be recorded or missed are derived. Application of the maximum likelihood solutions obtained to Mark I data and to direct projection table measurements of the same track gave essentially the same results. (D.C.W.)

Calcium Turnover Studies in Man

Description: Methods for determination of calcium turnover in man with radioisotopes are presented and the clinical use of various techniques is evaluated. In the discussion of kinetic analyses, some important observations were made. The accretion rate calculation can be made independent of the number of compartments in the exchangeable calcium pool, and thus is not distorted by approximate estimations of this pool. However, if the exchangeable calcium pool is calculated with the isotope dilution technique,… more

The Cellular Differences Between Acute and Chronic Neutron and Gamma Ray Irradiation in Mice

Description: Data from many laboratories are summarized that indicate that for mice the RBE of large single doses of gamma rays or neutrons is about the same for shortening of the life span as it is for acute lethality. However, for chronic irradiation the RBE is quite high for shortening of the life span, due to the fact that very small doses of neutrons are proportionately just as effective as large doses, while for gamma rays, small doses are proportionately only about 1/ 4 as effective as large doses. T… more

Ceramic Materials for Nuclear Thermionic Converters

Description: The developement and fabrication of ceramic-to-metal seals for thermionic converters which will operate in the temperature range of 700 to 1200 deg C are reported. Two ceramic-to-metal seal combinations were developed which show promise for specialized applications. For operation in an oxidizing atmosphere near 700 deg C, magnesia and nickel appear to be a good combination. Seals operating near 1200 deg C, if an oxidizing atmosphere is not present, may be composed of niobium and alumina with pa… more

Chronic and Acute Radiation of Microsporogenesis and Mature Pollen in Quercus

Description: The production of pollen under conditions of chronic gamma irradiation was investigated for three oak species. Two chronically irradiated areas were studied: a low level (1 to 15r/day) area where trees had received varying amounts of radiation over a period of 11 years, and a second area receiving gamma radiation for about five months previous to the investigation. In the latter study dose levels ranged from lethal (45r/day) to a region of no detectable effect. In both areas pollen abortion sho… more

Colloidal Radioalbumin Aggregates for Organ Scanning

Description: Colloidal aggregates (10 to 20 m mu ) of human serum albumin /sup 131/I may be used safely by intravenous injection to perform photoscans of the heart, liver, spleen, stomach, and salivary glands in man. Large particle size suspensions (10 to 50 mu ) of the same material were investigated experimentally in animals for scanning the lungs after intravenous injection and the brain following injection into an internal carotid artery. The advantages of this test material are the relatively low radia… more
