This record consists of data and notes contained in a file folder labeled "Dragon Calcs. - Thermal Expansion as Safety Valve." There are several versions of this work included, along with many pages of equations. The work centered on the following supposition: Suppose that a "dragon" - type assembly is stopped instantaneously at the moment of greatest criticality and only a small fraction of the total energy in a normal burst had been released. Includes tables, sketches and drawings.
