The Investigation Of Different Variables In The Assaying Of Silver Cyanide Solution, Warren M. Mahan May 1940

The Investigation Of Different Variables In The Assaying Of Silver Cyanide Solution, Warren M. Mahan

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The assaying of gold and silver cyanide solutions is by no means new. The first method of analysis which is given in the literature is an evaporation method by S. B. Christy in 1896. However, the fire assaying of gold and silver dates further back than this. There is a method of fire assaying for gold and silver given in literature as early as 1556 in Georgius, Agricola’s De Re Metallica book.


Areal Geology Of The Post-Paleozoic Surface Of The Northwest Plains, William M. Broderick May 1940

Areal Geology Of The Post-Paleozoic Surface Of The Northwest Plains, William M. Broderick

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Probably most of the area included in this report has been ex­amined to some extent by oil geologists, and most, if not all, of the important domes have been discovered and surveyed thoroughly. In parts of the area, the bedrock is covered by glacial drift or alluvium materi­al, but it is reasonable to believe that no new domal structure will be found. This means that surface examination alone will be insufficient in locating new oil fields, so future prospecting will be dependent, to a great extent, on studies of sub-surface stratigraphy.


A Study Of Metallic Eutectics, Robert P. Corbett May 1940

A Study Of Metallic Eutectics, Robert P. Corbett

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

All of the metals have definite melting points. When a metal is heated above the melting point, it exists as a liquid. Now if the melt is allowed to cool, it will solidify when a temperature corresponding to the melting point is reached.

However, if one metal is added to another metal, both of which are mutually soluble in the liquid state, a certain effect can be noted. The melt will not solid­ify when the melting point of the pure metal is reached, but will freeze at a lower temperature.

Electrolysis Of Molten Mixtures Of Galena And Lead Chloride., Donald Q. Cole

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Electrolysis of molten mixtures of lead chloride and galena was carried out under various conditions of temperature, time, composition, and current densities; without a diaphram, and with various diaphrams. Continuous runs, with necessary additions of lead sulfide and lead chloride to maintain a melt of the proper composition, were attempted on a small scale.


The Electrolytic Recovery Of Copper And Zinc From Scrap Brass With Special Reference To Lead-Bearing Brass., Frederick A. Hames May 1940

The Electrolytic Recovery Of Copper And Zinc From Scrap Brass With Special Reference To Lead-Bearing Brass., Frederick A. Hames

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Several methods have been investigated, with some success, for treating scrap brass to recover copper and zinc, either as pure metals or as salts of the metals. One of the more promising of these methods is electrolysis in sulfate solution for the recovery of pure copper and zinc.

A Study Of The Effect Of Third Metals On The Wetting Properties Of Solders, William L. O'Brien May 1940

A Study Of The Effect Of Third Metals On The Wetting Properties Of Solders, William L. O'Brien

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Solders are not new alloys, since they were known in late Roman times when they were mentioned by Pliny. These solders differed very little from our modern ones. Tertiarium, consisting of one part of tin to two parts of lead, is known today as plumbers solder; and argentarium, consisting of equal parts of lend and tin, is still extensively used for many purposes.

At the present time the principal uses for tungsten lie in the manufacture of ferro-alloys and tungsten steels. Due to it’s hardening and strengthening characteristics it holds an important position among steel hardening metals. The great rush for it’s production during the World War years clearly points to it’s importance in the manufacture of armament.


The Measurement Of Current Efficiency In Zinc Sulphate Electrolytes Containing Antimony And Cobalt By Hydrogen Evolution, Arthur R. Hard May 1940

The Measurement Of Current Efficiency In Zinc Sulphate Electrolytes Containing Antimony And Cobalt By Hydrogen Evolution, Arthur R. Hard

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The measurement of current efficiency by hydrogen evolution is based on the assumption that the portion of the current which deposits no zinc will release hydrogen. This assumption is correct for solutions containing no impurities electropositive to zinc.
