Title Simulant Development for Hanford Double-Shell Tank Mixing and Waste Feed Delivery Testing.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 86p
Personal Author D. N. Tran P. A. Gauglitz W. C. Buchmiller
Abstract The purpose of this study is to prepare small batches of simulants in advance of the demonstrations to determine specific simulant recipes, to evaluate the compatibility of the liquids and particles, and to determine whether the simulants are stable for the potential range of test temperatures. The objective of the testing, which is focused primarily on the Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, is to determine the composition of simulant materials that gives the desired density and viscosity or rheological parameters.
