Title: HEAVY WATER MODERATED POWER REACTORS PROGRESS REPORT FOR NOVEMBER 1959

Abstract

At the end of November, 20% of the construction and 80% of the firm design of the Heavy Water Components Test Reactor (HWCTR) were complete. Proof testing of various seals and mechanisms for the HWCTR continued satisfatorily. Further analyses are given of the transient behavior of the HWCTR isolated coolant loops and of the experimental data on the nuclear effects of hot moderator. The results of additional fabrication and irradiation tests of uranium metal and uranium oxide are recorded. The manufacture of tubular metallurgical joints between Zircaloy and stainless steel is also reported. (See also DP-415.) (auth)
