Title: Estimation of gas leak rates through very small orifices and channels. [From sealed PuO/sub 2/ containers under accident conditions]

Estimation of gas leak rates through very small orifices and channels. [From sealed PuO/sub 2/ containers under accident conditions] As a result of a literature search, equations have been compiled for estimating the flow rates of pure gases through very small orifices and capillaries. Such equations might be useful in establishing upper limits of leak rates from sealed PuO/sub 2/ containers under accident conditions.
