Title: THE RETENTION OF FISSION PRODUCTS BY SOILS UNDERLYING THE NUCLEAR ENGINEERING TEST FACILITY AT WADC. Period covered: September 1955 to January 1957

Abstract

A study was made of the retention of fission products by soils underlying the site for the Nuclear Engineering Test Facility, The purpose of the study was to provide some data which would be of value in planning for the contingency of a reactor run-away and for possible seepage of contaminated water during normal operation. Experiments were conducted to determine total capacity of the soils, equilibrium sorption of ions by the soil in a static system, and elution of ions from the soil by water. These experiments were of an exploratory nature, and although not complete, do give an indication of the soils ability to retain various fission products. However, on the basis of the few experiments performed, it is possible to provide oaly qualitative information and to indicate the direction and extent of fature studies. (auth)
