Abstract  

The flux of cold neutrons that is obtainable from various high energy netron sources is studied for a particular model of a cold neutron source when the cold moderation region of the apparatus is at 20, 70, and 298K. The maximum flux obtained with a californium-252 source was 2.7·10−3 cold neutron per (cm2·second (source neutron)). This flux was obtained when the cold moderation region of the apparatus was at 20K and when the thermal moderator is either polyethylene or trimethylbenzene and the cold moderator is polyethylene. This flux should allow sensitive prompt and delayed neutron activation analysis measurements.

Abstract  

This report presents results from the application of the Monte Carlo N-Particle (MCNP) computer code to the252Cf neutron activation analysis (NAA) Device in the Technical Physics Institute of the Heilongjiang Science Academy of the People's Republic of China. The thermal and epithermal neutron flux at the sample positions and the neutron and photon fluxes on the surfaces of the device were calculated. A comparison between the calculated and experimental thermal and epithermal neutron fluxes at sample positions yield relative errors of less than 10% for the thermal neutron flux.

In this paper, we explore locally principal element lattices in terms of primary, semiprimary and prime power elements.

Let be aC-lattice which is strong join principally generated. In this paper, we consider prime elements of for which every semiprimary element is primary. We show, for example, that a compact nonmaximal primep with this property is principal. We also show that if every primep=m has this property, then is either a one dimensional domain or a primary lattice. It follows that if every primep satisfies the property, and if there are only a finite number of minimal primes in , then is the finite direct product of one-dimensional domains and primary lattices.

Abstract  

Equilibrium adiabatic heat-capacity measurements have been made on zone refined samples of CeB6 and PrB6. Companion measurements made on LaB6, NdB6, and GdB6 have been reported elsewhere. These show cooperative lambda-type anomalies associated with antiferro-magnetic ordering. Except for lanthanum hexaboride, Schottky internal crystal field levels result in significant contributions to the thermodynamic functions. The gross thermodynamic properties at 298.15 K heat capacity (Cp/R), entropy increment (ΔT 0,m S 0/R), and Gibbs energy function are correlated with the nature of the lanthanide. For LaB6, CeB6, PrB6, NdB6, and GdB6 the three properties are, respectively: {11.654, 12.014, 11.997, 11.916, 11.695} Cp/R; {10.001, 11.803, 12.430, 12.558, 13.982} S0/R, and finally {4.379, 5.912, 6.232, 6.451, 7.905}Φ0 m/R.

Abstract  

This paper is concerned with the estimation of heat capacities in the IVA 3d-transition element compounds using especially Zr and Hf compounds as examples. Most prediction schemes routinely tacitly assume that volumes and masses trend in parallel. However, the lanthanide contraction here ensures for ZrX/HfX systems — and generally elsewhere — that this is not so in this portion of the periodic table. Available methods such as Latimer's, Volumetric Priority, Komada-Westrum, Grimvall's, and Sommers' are compared on IVA elements and compounds. Only the Sommers approach has volumetric input. It provides the best prediction.
