Abstract:

IRRADIATED ARGON MEASUREMENT ARE PRESENTED FOR THE AIRCRAFT SHIELD TEST REACTOR. Results are reported of the initial studies performed on the exhaust effluent from the dry-pool environment configuration III of the 3-mw ground test reactor GTR. With the ASGEOMETRY OF CONFIGURATION II, no detectable amounts of ARGON-41 WERE PRESENT IN THE AIR ABOVE THE REACTOR AT A POWER LEVEL OF 2 MW. With the GTR in the irradiation closet of configuration III 4-inch water reflector, an argon activity of 0.5 x 10 to the-10th power microcuriecc-watt was generated in the dry side of the pool.
