Title: HOT BOX--A HIGH-TEMPERATURE CRITICAL FACILITY

Abstract

The purpose of Hot Box is the measurement of the behavior of enriched reactors at elevated temperatures which will allow the normalization of existing calculational techniques and allow a better understanding of neutron behavior at and near thermal energies. Initially, maximum temperatures will be 1200 deg F. Uranium foils will be 1 and 2 mils thick and moderator blocks 1 in. thick. Hot Box is located at the east end of Jackass Flats in the Nevada Test Site. (W.D.M.)
