Effects of Pressure on Thermal Transport in Plutonium Oxide Powder
Radial temperature profiles of plutonium dioxide powder in a cylindrical vessel were measured over a pressure range of 0.055 to 334.4 kPa with two different fill gases, helium and argon. The powder provides a very uniform self-heating medium for analysis. A thermal conductivity model was developed f...
