Title: H pile axial flux distribution

Abstract

Significant production gains could be made by improving metal rupture performance. A means of achieving this is by depeaking the axial flux distribution, thus reducing the maximum specific power for a given tube-power. The flux traverse program has provided some knowledge of front-to-rear flux, and was instrumental in prompting a change in the equilibrium HCR pattern during February, 1958. A ``before and after`` comparison of in-pile flux conditions is presented, and suggestions for further improvement are given.
