The Solubility Of Zinc Ethyl Xanthate In Water, Thomas M. Mckenzie Oct 1944

The Solubility Of Zinc Ethyl Xanthate In Water, Thomas M. Mckenzie

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A determination of the solubility of zinc ethyl xanthate was attempted by measuring the refractive index of a saturated solution of that salt. The small increment in refractive index effected by adding zinc ethyl xanthate to water in saturation quantities rendered measurements difficult and of dubious accuracy.


Hydrogen Overvoltage Of Cadmium Bismuth And Antimony Bismuth Alloys, Edwin W. Stevens Oct 1944

Hydrogen Overvoltage Of Cadmium Bismuth And Antimony Bismuth Alloys, Edwin W. Stevens

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A method to measure hydrogen overvoltage was devel­oped and checked with metals of known overvoltage. Alloys of bismuth and antimony and of bismuth and cad­mium were prepared and their overvoltages determined.


The Electrodeposition Of Copper-Cobalt Alloys, Richard L. Dunn Oct 1944

The Electrodeposition Of Copper-Cobalt Alloys, Richard L. Dunn

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

An attempt was made to deposit a 50:50 copper-cobalt alloy from various sulfate electrolytes. No true 50:50 alloy was obtained but various mixtures of cobalt and copper rich crystals were deposited.


Fluorite Near Silver Bow, Montana, Charles V. Campbell Feb 1944

Fluorite Near Silver Bow, Montana, Charles V. Campbell

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The wartime demand for fluorspar has caused renewed interest in fluorite deposits. Near Silver Bow, Montana, a deposit of massive, coarsely crystalline fluorspar, which has not been described in the literature, has attracted the atten­tion of the United States Geological Survey.


The Incompatibility Of Certain Alcohol And Soap Frothers, John Thomas Doherty Feb 1944

The Incompatibility Of Certain Alcohol And Soap Frothers, John Thomas Doherty

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this thesis is to elucidate this phenomena of frother incompatibility, and to offer an explanation based upon several divergent lines of investigation. The research was limited to four common frothing agents, namely, pine oil, n-amyl alcohol, sodium oleate, and sodium lauryl sulphate (Dreft).


Hardness And Electrical Resistivity Of Copper-Iron Powder Metal Compacts, Fred A. Foyle Jr. Feb 1944

Hardness And Electrical Resistivity Of Copper-Iron Powder Metal Compacts, Fred A. Foyle Jr.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Although powder metallurgical methods have been used for years to fabricate tungsten and platinum, very little scientific data have been recorded until the beginning of this century. A large percentage of all commercial production at present is based upon past practice rather than upon scientific knowledge.


Methods Of Determining Porosity And Spatter Losses Of Arc Welds, Campbell W. F. Funk Feb 1944

Methods Of Determining Porosity And Spatter Losses Of Arc Welds, Campbell W. F. Funk

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The original objective of this project was to determine the effect of varying current intensity and electrode coating composition upon the spatter losses and porosity of arc welds made by alternating current. This subject was suggested by the Welding Research Council of the Engineering Foundation, which is a clearing house for welding research in order to avoid du­plication of work.


Age Hardening Of Copper Antimony Alloys, William R. Stern Feb 1944

Age Hardening Of Copper Antimony Alloys, William R. Stern

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A large number of alloys of varying percentages of copper and antimony were prepared. These alloys were treated in various ways which might be expected to produce age hardening. The effect of cold working was studied in the range where the alloys were malleable.


Production Of Iron-Tin Compacts By Powder Metallurgy And A Synopsis Of Their Principle Properties, Matt C. Andrews Feb 1944

Production Of Iron-Tin Compacts By Powder Metallurgy And A Synopsis Of Their Principle Properties, Matt C. Andrews

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This thesis is concerned primarily with the production of metal powder compacts of iron and tin. In producing these compacts, the effects of process­ing variables on some of the essential properties of the pellets made were investigated.


The Electrodeposition Of Iron-Manganese Alloys, Raymond D. Magorien Feb 1944

The Electrodeposition Of Iron-Manganese Alloys, Raymond D. Magorien

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

An electrodeposition of an iron-manganese alloy was made from the same conditions determined by previous re­search. Various addition agents were experimented with in an attempt to produce better conditions for electro-deposition. It was found advantageous to add small a­mounts of sodium lauryl sulfate and ammonium sulfite to the electrolyte.


An Isopach Map And Discussion Of The Marine Jurassic Of Western United Sates And Canada, John H. Ferry Feb 1944

An Isopach Map And Discussion Of The Marine Jurassic Of Western United Sates And Canada, John H. Ferry

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Recent demands for petroleum to carry on the war effort have resulted in widespread prospecting in the northern Great Plains. Nearly all oil wells now drilled are of a depth to penetrate the marine Jurassic formations. It is known that these strata differ in thickness from place to place, but information of distribution, thickness, and lithology has not yet been compiled.


Electroplating Of Chromium Upon A Nickel Plated Magnesium Alloy, Harmel Dawson Jan 1944

Electroplating Of Chromium Upon A Nickel Plated Magnesium Alloy, Harmel Dawson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A nickel plating operation for magnesium alloys was investigated and proved successful in plating a small sample of a typical commercial magnesium alloy, Dowmetal J1.
