A Marine Railway and Transfer System for the UNDEX Test Facility

New Insights into Explosive Compaction of Loose, Saturated, Cohesionless Soils

Bubba, A Teleoperated Countermine Vehicle
A recent countermine test program required the development of Bubba, a 5 ton, 6 wheel drive, M-923 military truck converted to teleoperation. The Mine Detection by Energetic Photons (MIDEP)...

Safety Assessment of a Chemical Reactor Vessel
The potential explosion loadings on a chemical reactor vessel is described in this paper. The potential loads presented provide a basis for designing spherical storage vessels which will...

Estimation of Near-Regional Seismic Ground Motion from Underground Nuclear Explosion Tests
A problem unique to the location of a nuclear waste repository adjacent to the Nevada Test Site is the assessment of seismic ground motion from potential underground nuclear explosion...

Crisis Management Training at Nuclear Facilities: Simulations in Bomb Threats
Substantial enhancements to the study of the theoretical and applied foundations of crisis management have been achieved in recent years. Whereas risk managers study 'the probability that...

Hanford Ferrocyanide Reactivity: Effects of Other Tank Constituents
In this study simulated wastes were used to determine the effect of potential waste constituents on the reactivity and explosivity of Hanford ferrocyanide-bearing wastes. Test results...

Managing the Data Explosion
Sound data management practices have always been central to a successful project. However, the data explosion brought on by high-tech electronic sensors and automatic samplers can exceed...

Explosive Forming of Aluminum-Lithium Alloys
This paper proposes the use of explosive forming to form large, near net shape components for HLLV propellant tanks and structures in meeting this need. Combining with high strength to...

Principles of Control for Robotic Excavation
Excavation can be considered one of the most unstructured problems in the construction environment. On one hand, many technologies have been developed in the past to build shelters using...
