Abstract

This paper reports on the use of radioactive inserts in studying the deformation of steel in hot rotary piercing for tube making. Iron or steel wires are activated in the pile, inserted in tubes drilled in iron or steel billets, which are then processed under normal production conditions. Careful monitoring shows that the radiation exposures and contamination of the plant are quite negligible. On cooling, the billets are scanned in the laboratory, using a collimated scintillationcounter mounted normal to the surface of the pierced billet, and isodose curves show the shape of the deformed insert normal to the tube surface. A similar scan of a section normal to the axis of the tube gives a second plot; from a combination of the two plots, a three-dimensional picture is obtained. Some results are quoted, but the main emphasis of the paper is on the experimental technique, which has quite general applicability to metal deformation studies. The insert must be located within a millimeter or thereabouts, for which a higher resolution is required than is normal in medical scanning techniques. The problems of achieving this are discussed in terms of {gamma}-energy, collimator design and energy discrimination. (author) [French] Le present memoire traite  More>>

(author) [French] Le present memoire traite de l'emploi de fils metalliques radioactifs pour l'etude de la deformation de l'acier durant le forage rotatif a chaud en vue de la fabrication des tubes. Des fils de fer ou d'acier sont actives dans un reacteur et places dans des cavites tabulaires menagees a l'interieur de billettes de fer ou d'acier que l'on transforme ensuite dans les conditions de fabrication normales. Un controle radiologique minutieux montre que les dangers d'irradiation et de contamination dans l'usine sont pratiquement negligeables. Apres refroidissement, les billettes sont examinees en laboratoire au moyen d'un compteur a scintillations avec collimateur de faible ouverture, monte de facon que l'axe soit perpendiculaire a la surface de la billette foree; les courbes isoactives montrent les deformations du fil radioactif dans la direction normale a la surface du tube. Un examen analogue d'une section perpendiculaire a l'axe du tube dorme un deuxieme diagramme; en combinant les deux diagrammes, on obtient une representation a trois dimensions. Les auteurs du memoire mentionnent quelques resultats obtenus, mais ile s'attachent surtout a exposer la technique experimentale qui trouve une application tres etendue dans l'etude de la deformation des metaux. Le fil metallique radioactif doit etre localise a un millimetre pres, ce qui exige un pouvoir de resolution superieur a celui qui est normalement necessaire pour les explorations medicales au moyen de radioisotopes. Les auteurs analysent l'influence de l'energie y, de la construction du collimateur et de la discrimination energetique sur les problemes a resoudre pour obtenir ce pouvoir de resolution. (author) [Spanish] La memoria informa sobre el empleo de insertos radiactivos en la investigacion de las deformaciones del acero durante la fabricacion de tubos por punzonado rotatorio en caliente. Se irradian en el reactor alambres de hierro o de acero y se insertan en orificios tubulares taladrados en tochos de los mismos materiales, que luego son tratados con arreglo a metodos normales de produccion. Un monitoraje meticuloso demuestra que se pueden despreciar el grado de exposicion a las radiaciones y la contaminacion de la planta. Una vez frios, se exploran los tochos en el laboratorio, utilizando un contador de centelleo con colimador, montado perpendicularmente a la superficie del tocho perforado. Las curvas isodosicas indican la configuracion del inserto deformado en un plano perpendicular a la superficie del tubo. Una exploracion similar de un corte perpendicular al eje del tubo da un segundo diagrama; combinando los dos diagramas se obtiene una representacion tridimensional. Se indican algunos resultados, pero la memoria trata principalmente de la tecnica experimental, que es aplicable a los estudios sobre deformacion de los metales en general. En este metodo es preciso localizar el inserto radiactivo con un error no mayor de un milimetro, lo que exige un poder de resolucion superior al que requieren normalmente las tecnicas de exploracion medica. Se examinan los problemas correspondientes en terminos de energia gamma, diseno del colimador y discriminacion de energias. (author) [Russian] V nastoyashchej rabote rassmatrivaetsya vopros ob ispol'zovanii radio- aktivnykh vtulok pri izuchenii deformatsii stali v pirsing-protsesse s pomoshch'yu goryachego rotatsionnogo metoda. ZHeleznaya ili stal'naya provoloka aktiviruetsya v reaktore, pomeshchaetsya v truby, pro- sverlennye v zheleznykh ili stal'nykh zagotovkakh, kotorye zatem podvergayutsya obrabotke v normal'nykh proizvodstvennykh usloviyakh. Tshchatel'noe nablyudenie pokazyvaet, chto radiatsionnoe obluchenie i zagryazneniya ustanovki sovershenno neznachitel'ny. Posle okhlazhdeniya zagotovki podvergayutsya analizu v laboratorii putem primeneniya kollimirovannogo stsintillyatsionnogo schetchika, raspolozhennogo perpendikulyarno k poverkhnosti prosverlennoj zagotovki; krivye izodoz pokazyvayut formu deformiro- vannoj radioaktivnoj vtulki, raspolozhennoj pod pryamym uglom k poverkhnosti truby. Drugoj grafik poluchaetsya ot podobnogo roda razvertki uchastka, nakhodyashchegosya pod pryamym uglom k osi truby; pri pomoshchi dvukh poluchennykh grafikov poluchaetsya kartina v trekh izmereniyakh. V dokumente privodyatsya nekotorye rezul'taty, no osnovnoe vnimanie v nem udelyaetsya metodam provedeniya ehksperimentov, kotorye shiroko ispol'zuyutsya pri izuchenii defor- matsii metallov. Vtulki dolzhny byt' raspolozheny na rasstoyanii millimetra ili okolo ehtogo, dlya chego trebuetsya bolee vysokaya razreshayushchaya sposobnost' po sravneniyu s normal'nymi metodami issledovaniya, primenyaemymi v meditsine. Problemy dostizheniya ehtogo ras- smatrivayutsya v nastoyashchem doklade v zavisimosti ot ehnergii gamma-izlucheniya, konstruk- tsii kollimatora i diskriminatsii ehnergii. (author)}
