This report discusses fission fragment distribution tudies, colloi l UO2 preparation, improvements in U and N2H4 a alytical techniques, in-reactor loop design modifications, fission fragment deposition measurements for a variety of sources, correlation of experimental heat transfer data, and a parametric reactor systems analysis. Gas disengagement development is essentially complete. hree methods were evolved for converting aqueous UO2 sols to colloidal UO2 dispersible in liquid NH3. In-reactor loop design was modified to incorporate a compact equipment cubicle within the MTR biological shield. Polarographic analysis showed no uranium contamination in liquid samples filtered from LPTR irradiatio capsules. Statistically reliable hydrazine G-values as high as 2.2 were obtained in recent LPTR runs. Author
