  • The steady-state release of active noble gas and iodine from defective fuel elements is described either in terms of a kinetic or a diffusion model. Both models assume a diffusional release in the fuel. Transport of fission products in the fuel-to-sheath gas is represented either by a first-order rate process or diffusion process, and is characterized with an escape-rate constant or diffusion coefficient, respectively. The kinetic model predicts a release dependence on the decay constant of lambda /sup -1/2/ to lambda /sup 3/2/. The diffusion model predicts a dependence of lambda /sup -1/. Observed release data from inpile loop experiments,more » for a wide range of defect states, confirm the predictions of the models. A fitting of the model to the measured data yields estimates of the empirical diffusion coefficient in the fuel matrix, and the scape-rate constant or diffusion coefficient in the fuel-to-sheath gap. Evaluation of the fitted parameters enables the various rate-controlling processes to be deduced as a function of the defect size.« less
  • The radiochemical separation of iodine-131 from tellurium by means of column chromatography is described. Initial studies were carried out using the technique of ascending paper chromatography and the results obtained applied to column chromatography. Using the method described presents the possibility of separating large quantities of extremely pure radioactive iodine. Both chemical analysis, and nuclear spectroscopic studies, were employed in order to check the degree of purity obtainable. The principal advantage of the reported method is that the materials made use of, for the separation, are unlikely to be subject to radiation damage. Thus high levels of activity can bemore » processed. (auth)« less
  • A new method has been developed for taking continuous measurements of rCBF by means of continuous infusion of 81mKr. Using this method, it is possible to follow the sequential changes in blood flow of various brain regions continuously. The method makes it possible to observe the sequential changes in CBF following drug administration, motor activation and various kinds of stimulation, and, furthermore, to observe the CO/sub 2/ reactivity and autoregulation of cerebral vessels. It will undoubtedly prove useful in the investigation of various pathological states.
