Pagination or Media Count:
The report describes a preliminary investigation into the effects of radiation on a proposed gyroscope damping fluid. The effects of gamma radiation on the viscosity of the fluid are described, together with a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the gases evolved during irradiation. An attempt has also been made to determine the minimum radiation dose necessary to produce bubbles of gas in a sealed container of the fluid.
