Study of low temperature mechanical properties of metals and solidified gases by Jesse W Beams( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies of metals at low temperature (OOR 826:16, Part A): Two methods which were used to determine the tensile strength of thin metallic films are described. The adhesion of one metal to another by high speed technique was investigated. Studies of solidified gases at low temperature (OOR 826:16, Part B): An investigation was made of the measurement of PVT relationships and phase transition parameters for various solidified gases. The following reprints are also included: Mechanical properties of thin films of gold and silver (OOR 826:14); Compression and densities of four solidified hydrocarbons and carbon tetrafluoride at 77 K (OOR 826:10); Alarm for Philips air liquefier (OOR 826:15); Phase transitions and compressions of solid CH4, CD4 and O2 (OOR 826:12); Application of indium resistance thermometry (OOR 826:11); Compression and phase transitions of solid NH3, SiF4, H2S, and CF4 (OOR 826:13)

Cryogenic Instrumentation( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

For the period June 15, 1969 through December 14, 1974, research on Cryogenic Instrumentation was carried out at the University of Virginia as part of project Themis. The emphasis of the program was on experimental and theoretical study of various low temperature phenomena that have device applications, particularly superconducting devices and materials. Accomplishments are reported on the following topics: Tunneling, Conduction and Magnetic Phenomena, Superconductivity in Transition Metals and Transition Metal Compounds, Device Applications of Weak Links, Fluxoid Quantization and Flux Flow, Fundamental Fluctuation Measurements in Superconductor Microchannels, Applications of High Q Superconducting Cavities, Properties of Liquid Helium, and Low Temperature Centrifugation. Short summaries of the work are given together with lists of publications which report the details. (Author)
