The Shielding of Mobile Reactors - II

Description: From abstract: "The methods of applying results of bulk-shielding measurements to the design of reactor shields is outlined. Geometrical transformations for the more common shapes are derived, as are approximate means of calculating leakage of radiation. As an illustration of the methods, the ORNL Lid Tanks and Bulk Shielding Facility data are transformed to a standard geometry and compared. Two direct calculations of water attenuation, using cross sections described in the previous article, are finally compared with the experimental data."

The Effect of Fluoride on the Corrosion of Stainless Steel in the Presence of Excess Al+3 Ion

Description: Technical report detailing corrosion tests of Type 347 stainless steel for two weeks in boiling uranyl nitrate, sulfuric acid media, with and without additions of Al+3 and F-1 in a 2:1 mole ratio. The results of these tests show that although the presence of aluminum greatly reduces the deleterious effect of fluoride, the corrosion rates are still three to four times greater than when no fluoride is present.
