Los Bombardeos Atomicos de Hiroshima y Nagasaki por el Distrito de Ingenieros de Manhattan, 29 de junio de 1946( )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los bombardeos atómicos sobre Hiroshima y Nagasaki fueron ataques nucleares ordenados por Harry S. Truman, presidente de los Estados Unidos, contra el Imperio del Japón. Los ataques se efectuaron el 6 y el 9 de agosto de 1945, y ayudaron a poner fin a la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Después de seis meses de intenso bombardeo de otras 67 ciudades, el arma nuclear Little Boy fue soltada sobre Hiroshima el lunes 6 de agosto de 1945, seguida por la detonación de la bomba Fat Man el jueves 9 de agosto sobre Nagasaki. Hasta la fecha, estos bombardeos constituyen los únicos ataques nucleares de la historia. Se estima que hacia finales de 1945, las bombas habían matado a 166 000 personas en Hiroshima y 80 000 en Nagasaki, totalizando unas 246 000 muertes, aunque sólo la mitad falleció los días de los bombardeos. Entre las víctimas, del 15 al 20 % murieron por lesiones o enfermedades atribuidas al envenenamiento por radiación. Desde entonces, algunas otras personas han fallecido de leucemia (231 casos observados) y distintos cánceres (334 observados) atribuidos a la exposición a la radiación liberada por las bombas. En ambas ciudades, la gran mayoría de las muertes fueron de civiles. Seis días después de la detonación sobre Nagasaki, el 15 de agosto, Imperio del Japón anunció su rendición incondicional frente a los Aliados , haciéndose formal el 2 de septiembre con la firma del acta de capitulación. Con la rendición de Japón, concluyó la Guerra del Pacífico y por tanto, la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Como consecuencias de la derrota, el imperio nipón fue ocupado por fuerzas aliadas lideradas por los Estados Unidos --con contribuciones de Australia, la India británica, el Reino Unido y Nueva Zelanda-- y adoptó los Tres principios antinucleares , que le prohibían poseer, fabricar e introducir armamento nuclear

Pile kinetics by Lothar Nordheim( )

2 editions published in 1946 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From abstract: "A pile will run steadily at an arbitrary level if it is just critical. For a pile not at equilibrium, equations of motion can be set up that contain as variables the pile power, the number of delayed neutron emitters and, in case it is of importance, also the pile temperature. The coefficients will depend on the average lifetime of the neutrons in the pile, the fractions and periods of delayed neutrons, temperature coefficients of resistivity and similar quantities. For a definite 'excess resistivity', which may be positive or negative, the power level will change exponentially with time with periods determined by the so-called 'labour' relation. For control and safety problems the transient behavior of the pile under reactivity changes has to be investigated. A number of limiting cases can be solved explicitly. A general method for the solution of the pile equations is available for small deviations from a steady state. In this case a pile impedance can be defined in close analogy to electric circuit theory."
