Abstract:

Henrys Law constants for fission product elements and important activated elements are estimated for the system dilute element, 1 atm oxygen pressure, and liquid silicate solvent. A lower oxygen pressure limit for use of these values is also presented. These constants may be used to calculate solubility of fission products in fallout as a function of temperature. In conjunction with diffusivities, half-lives, yields, and detonation parameters, these constants can be used to calculate fractionation effects in fallout. A simple estimating scheme is given for describing fission-product distribution and fractionation in fallout.
