    Signal-flow graphs have long been exploited in feedback-control analysis, and can greatly aid in kinetic studies of nuclear reactors and nuclear reactor systems. The signal-flow graph is a means for conveniently and compactly displaying a set of linear differential equations. Such a flow graph can be easily and quickly formulated from a set of equations, or, with experience, directly by inspection... View full abstract»

    An approach to the application of nuclear rocket systems is to consider the integration of such systems into the national space vehicle program. Within the framework of the general configuration and the various missions for which these space vehicles are planned the potential performance which nuclear rockets may provide is illustrated. Although a wide range of potential applications is apparent w... View full abstract»

    A system is described for pulse testing of transistors in the 10-10 to 10-9 sec range. Based on these measurements, a nanosecond, current switching, multiple coincidence system has been constructed. It is dc coupled and has input pulse limiters and clipping stubs. A ten-nonosecond scaler-discririnator stage is discussed which also employs current switching techniques. One output is scaled for puls... View full abstract»

    It is assumed that the mission for a nuclear rocket upper-stage vehicle is the transfer from a 300-mile earth orbit to a corotational earth orbit. An engine of the solid fuel, heat exchanger type is assumed and briefly described. The engine duty cycle requirements are deduced from the incremental velocity requirements of the mission. Controls attention is fixed on the thrust programmer without dis... View full abstract»

    An experimental study of background pulse pileup in neutron counting channels has been performed. Noutron- and gamma-produced pulses from two BF3-filled counters and one boron-lined counter were photographed for several input circuit time constants. Several measurements were made for each of ten counting channels: five commercially available circuits, three Bettis reactor source range channels, an... View full abstract»

    In the field of nuclear instrumentation, there is need for an economical instrument capable of storing data compactly in digital form. This paper delcribes a magnetic tape recorder which can store binary numbers from one to a maximum of eleven digits in parallel on a continuously rotating loop of tape. The tape is operated at a constant speed of 30 inches per second and a packing density of 667 bi... View full abstract»
