Southern Research Intstitute buildingSouthern Research Institute

The Southern Research Institute is an AWE facility for the time periods1955-1958; 1962; 1976; with residual radiation from 1959-1961; 1963-1975; 1977-March 1, 2011 so workers are eligible to file for Part B claims.

During the period from November 10, 1955 through June 1, 1958, it was licensed (License #C-3417) to receive source material from National Lead Company of Ohio (Fernald) for research on the properties of uranium-liquid metal fuel elements. The Institute performed hot tensile tests on uranium metal and was authorized to receive 300 pounds of normal uranium from NLO. Records also indicate that it handled test quantities of radioactive metals for NLO in 1976. The file also contains a proposal to NLO to test uranium workability at elevated temperature, but does not indicate if the work was done.
