This record consists of a report on reactor calculations. The calculations were based on a reactor that was cylidrical with the gas flowing through round holes parallel to the axis of the cylinder. Topics include: critical size calculations; heat transfer calculation; pressure drop; reactor dimensions considering gas flow; mass flow rate and power density; independence of mass flow density; and design procedure. The report includes calculations, drawings and tables. The drawings are labeled: "Reactor Diameter vs Density;" "Assumed Distribution of Power Density;" "Enthalpy of Hydrogen Gas;" and "Sampe Calculation of Reactor Size." The tables are labeled: "Symbols and Units for Heat Transfer and Flow Calculations;" "Power Density and Gas Condition Near Axis;" "Reactor Parameters;" and "Gas Velocities for Typical Reactor." This copy of the report was issued to H. Gordon of Lawrence Radiation Laboratory.
