Warrendale, PA: TMS, The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society, 1997. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. ix, , 153,  pages. Figures. Tables. References. Author Index. Subject Index. Name of previous owner on the half-title page. The Symposium on Materials for Spallation Neutron Sources, held in four sessions on February 10-12, 1997, in conjunctions with the 1997 TMS Annual Meeting, was the first symposium on this topic to be held under the aegis of TMS. It was sponsored by the Nuclear Materials Committee of the Structural Materials Division. The term "spallation", used in a nuclear context, appears to have been coined by Glenn Seaborg in a short 1947 article in Chemical and Engineering News, and it has been known since about that time that several items of spallation neutrons cab be produced when a 1-2 GeV proton strikes a heavy nucleus. But, it was only relatively recently then--with advances in accelerator technology--that this copious source of neutrons began to be applied in several important ways. One significant application of spallation neutrons is for neutron scattering and diffraction research facilities. Another major application of spallation neutrons sources was for accelerator production of tritium. Other applications may subsequently be developed. The Symposium addressed Radiation Effects, Corrosion, and Neutronics. Spallation is a process in which fragments of material (spall) are ejected from a body due to impact or stress. In nuclear physics, spallation is the process in which a heavy nucleus emits numerous nucleons as a result of being hit by a high-energy particle, thus greatly reducing its atomic weight.
Los Alamos, NM: Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory of the University of California, 1964. First Edition, First Printing thus, This Report supersedes LANL-2674, Parts I and II., Stated as 31st Edition. Wraps. x, 245,  pages. Printed on both sides. Figures. Tables. Formulae. Bibliography. Stapled on left side. Number on front cover. Name and organizational code in ink on front cover. Title on spine. This report is a revision of LAMS-2674, Parts I and II, to which a discussion of the nitrides and carbides of U, Th, and Pu has been added. State of the art as of mid-1960s. In general the literature covered extends from about 1930, depending on the system and the quality of the work, to March 1964. Although an effort has been made to present as complete a description of each system as possible, only that work which, in the author's opinion, would led to a clearer understanding has been discussed in any detail. Most early work and some recent measurements have been largely ignored except to show the effect of oxygen content or to give an approximate measured value when no other exists. Many of the references cited, as well as several books, contain complete bibliographies of the early literature and may be consulted when necessary. The carbides and nitrides discussed in this report suffer from two properties that have led to a considerable accumulation of questionable data. First, they are commonly single phase over a wide range of composition, and, second, they will form a solid solution with each other and with their respective oxide. Both of these factors will affect the properties of these materials, sometimes in a very striking manner. Without the use of care in preparing the compounds and the application of proper analytical techniques, an investigation may offer little meaningful information.

Rear cover creased. Maps. Fold-outs. Illustrated front cover. RARE surviving copy. This report is a comparison of merits of Crystal Springs town site and Aurora town site (located in Southern Nevada, adjoining the Nevada Atomic Test Site) to serve the people employed at Mercury Test Site and Test Site Area #3. The plan consists of construction of a lake, newly created community, encompassing complete services for residential and commercial, recreational, hospital, schools, electricity, water, gas, sewer systems to serve the needs of the people employed at Mercury Test Site and Test Site Area #3. The report concludes that "It is obvious that Crystal Springs Town Site, being approximately one-half the distance between Mercury and Test Site Area #3, will better serve the employees rather than the Aurora Town Site. Among the factors considered were location, water analysis, recreation, irrigation, Soil's report, time element, financing, and comparison of merits. Information in this document indicates it was prepared circa 1962.

References. Ex-Los Alamos National Laboratory with usual library markings. Back cover tear. This collection of W. F. Libby's papers contains all those on Radiocarbon and Tritium Dating and Tracing. The papers are introduced briefly by either a collaborator or the editors. After the war, Libby accepted an offer from the University of Chicago of a professorship in the Chemistry Department at the new Institute for Nuclear Studies. He returned to his studies of radioactivity. In 1939, Serge Korff had discovered that cosmic rays generated neutrons in the upper atmosphere. These interact with nitrogen-14 in the air to produce carbon-14: 1n + 14N 14C + 1p. The half-life of carbon-14 is 5,730±40 years. Libby realized that when plants and animals die they cease to ingest fresh carbon-14, thereby giving any organic compound a built-in nuclear clock. He published his theory in 1946 and expanded on it in his monograph Radiocarbon Dating in 1955. He also developed sensitive radiation detectors that could use the technique. Tests against sequoia with known dates from their tree rings showed radiocarbon dating to be reliable and accurate. The technique revolutionized archaeology, paleontology and other disciplines that dealt with ancient artifacts. In 1960, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry "for his method to use carbon-14 for age determination in archaeology, geology, geophysics, and other branches of science". He also discovered that tritium similarly could be used for dating water, and therefore wine.

Postscript--Submarines of the future, Appendix I--Awards, and Appendix II--Glossary of Terms. This book is the direct sequel to the author's brilliant and successful submarine story, Unbroken. Lieutenant Commander Alastair Campbell Gillespie Mars, DSO, DSC and Bar (1 January 1915 – 12 March 1985) was a Royal Navy World War II submarine commander. In 1952 he was court martialled and dismissed from the service under controversial circumstances and pursued a career as an author. In November 1941 Mars was appointed as commanding officer of HMS Unbroken, which he served on until June 1943 on operations in the Mediterranean. From August 1943 until December 1943 he was a staff officer at HMS Dolphin submarine base in Portsmouth. In December he was placed in command of HMS Thule in the Far East, remaining there until November 1945. Mars was arrested and court martialled for insubordination and absence without leave, which resulted in his dismissal from the Navy in June 1952. The controversy over his dismissal was the subject of a parliamentary question the following month, when the future prime minister James Callaghan asked the then First Lord of the Admiralty whether Mars would receive his pension.

Gainesville, FL: University of Florida, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, 1995. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Comb binding. i, 108 pages (printed single-sided only). Figures. Tables. This work had three main thrust areas: Solidification Studies and Single Crystal Growth; Mechanical Behavior of NiAl Single Crystals, and Other Characterization Studies. During the second year of this program, the efforts shifted from specimen preparation and characterization to property measurements and interpretation. Specifically, the authors continued to refine the processing strategies with the goal of producing high quality materials with controlled compositions and impurity levels and to then correlate the properties measured with the impurity and solute levels present. Among the accomplishment was the demonstrated ability to produce single crystals of NiAl with minimal contamination. They also had observations that suggested that NiAl superheats above its melting temperature and felt this merited further consideration. A major focus of this work was the area of mechanical property measurements. Significantly, the authors have shown that both static and dynamic strain aging (SSA and DSA, respectively) occur in NiAl, as originally hypothesized in their initial proposal. This was part of the University Research Initiative of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.

Storeplay, Inc., c1987. Presumed First Edition, First issuance thus. Boxed board game. MELTDOWN is the nuclear energy conflict game designed to be played by 2-6 players or teams ages teen to adult. The game involves elements of both chance and strategy. The strategy level ranges from simple to complex depending on the level of sophistication of the players. The two elements are heightened and interrelated as events in the game impact players both by the chance roll of the dice, and by strategic design of the other players. Each player is assigned 6 zones on which there is a clean reactor printed. The object of the game is to be the first player to make all six zones "Nuclear Free" or :Nuclear Safe" Working against you is the fact that both the game board and your opponents will be trying to force you to experience nuclear incidents at the reactors in your zones. These incidents will progress from the Alarm Stage (a level 1 incident) to the Radiation Warning Stage (a level 2 incident) to the Reactor Fault State (a level 3 incident) and finally to the MELTDOWN stage. Naturally, each stage is progressively more difficult to correct; and moreover a MELTDOWN requires a serious cleanup operations. Appears complete.
