Corrosion Resistance of Stainless Steels and High Ni-Cr Alloys to Acid Fluoride Wastes

Explosive Forming of Aluminum-Lithium Alloys
This paper proposes the use of explosive forming to form large, near net shape components for HLLV propellant tanks and structures in meeting this need. Combining with high strength to...

Degradation Mode Surveys of High Performance Candidate Container Materials
Corrosion resistant materials are being considered for the metallic barrier of the Yucca Mountain Project's high-level radioactive waste disposal containers. Nickel-chromium-molybdenum...

An Electrochemical Approach to Predicting Corrosion Performance of Container Materials
The pitting potentials of nickel-rich Alloy 825 are measured in chloride-containing solutions at different temperatures and adjusted to different pH values. The pitting potentials were...

Potential Uses of Lead in Nuclear Waste Disposal
In order for lead to be considered as a nuclear waste packaging material, it must be shown that it has adequate corrosion resistance, and that it does not degrade the properties of other...

Observations of Microcracking and Pore Collapse in Limestone Using Liquid Metal Porosimetry
A technique has been developed to preserve and observe the microstructure of rock or other porous material, as they exist under stresses, using liquid metal porosimetry. Cylindrical specimens...

Weld Overlaying with a Cavitation-Resistant Alloy
The characteristics and applications of a cavitation-resistant alloy, Hydroloy HQ913, are described. The alloy as weld overlays applied on hydropower plant components by covered electrodes...

Certification Challenges in the Development of an Innovative High Payload Capacity Spent Fuel Transportation Cask
The design approach and certification strategy used in the development of an innovative transportation cask for legal weight truck shipments of spent nuclear fuel is presented. The proposed...

Carbonyl Extraction of Lunar and Asteroidal Metals
The century-old Mond process for carbonyl extraction of metals from ore shows great promise as an efficient, low energy scheme for producing high-purity Fe, Ni, Cr, Mn, and Co from lunar...

The Use of Activated Carbon as a Polishing Step for Treatment of Industrial Plating Wastewaters
An activated carbon adsorption process was utilized as a polishing step following the precipitation (hydroxide or sulfide) process. Zinc and cadmium were the metals studied. Since plating...

Direct Filtration of a Semiconductor Wastewater
A pilot plant study was conducted to determine the feasibility of direct filtration for the removal of metal precipitates from a semiconductor manufacturing wastewater. The pH of the acidic...

Factors Influencing Zinc Cementation of Cadmium
The research reported here examines an innovative procedure for removal of cadmium from wastewaters. This process is the cementation of cadmium by zinc metal. Cementation is highly attractive...

The Adsorption Characteristics of NI (II) Onto Bubble Surface
The removal of Ni(II) by foam fractionation is brought about by the electrostatic mechanism. From removal and zeta potential measurements, it clearly demonstrates that Ni**2** plus and...

Fixation of Chromium and Cadmium from Electroplating Waste Sludges
The authors compare the effectiveness of two fixation techniques, namely silicate-cement and lime-fly ash, for immobilizing chromium and cadmium in a waste sludge obtained from an electroplating...

Impact of Metallic Solders on Water Quality
A description is given of first-draw water testing at residences in a Long Island, N. Y. , water district. Results for heavy metals, particularly lead, leaching from the solder and plumbing...

Adsorption and Release of Heavy Metals in Contaminated Soil
This study investigated the adsorption and release rates of toxic metals in soil type associated with hazardous waste sites common to the Northeastern United States. Five heavy metals...

Structural Materials in Aerospace Applications
In the selection of materials for aerospace applications, consideration is given to factors, such as strength and weight, as well as to economics and energy requirements for both manufacture...
