The effects of nuclear weapons by United States ( Book )
6 editions published between 1957 and 1962 in English and Undetermined and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When 'The Effects of Atomic Weapons' was published in 1950, the explosive energy yields of the fission bombs available at that time were equivalent to some thousands of tons (i.e., kilotons) of TNT. With the development of thermonuclear (fusion) weapons, having energy yields in the range of millions of tons (i.e., megatons) of TNT, a new presentation, entitled 'The Effects of Nuclear Weapons, ' was issued in 1957. A completely revised edition was published in 1962 and this was reprinted with a few changes early in 1964. Since the last version of 'The Effects of Nuclear Weapons' was prepared, much new information has become available concerning nuclear weapons effects. This has come in part from the series of atmospheric tests, including several at very high altitudes, conducted in the Pacific Ocean area in 1962. In addition, laboratory studies, theoretical calculations, and computer simulations have provided a better understanding of the various effects. Within the limits imposed by security requirements, the new information has been incorporated in the present edition. In particular, attention may be called to a new chapter on the electromagnetic pulse. The material is arranged in a manner that should permit the general reader to obtain a good understanding of the various topics without having to cope with the more technical details. Most chapters are thus in two parts: the first part is written at a fairly low technical level whereas the second treats some of the more technical and mathematical aspects. The presentation allows the reader to omit any or all of the latter sections without loss of continuity

Laboratory investigation of plastic-glass fiber reinforcement for reinforced and prestressed concrete by John C Wines ( Book )
2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The investigation consisted of the evaluation of plastic -glass fiber elements, commonly called fiber glass, that could be used as plain reinforcement in concrete members and the design of concrete members to utilize the properties of the fiber-glass elements. Fiber-glass rods were tested for tensile strength, long-duration load, and elasticity and bond in concrete. Utilizing these essential properties, concrete beams were designed with fiber -glass rods as the tension elements. The fiber-glass reinforced concrete beams were compared both experimentally and analytically with similarly designed steel reinforced concrete beams on the basis of ultimate flexural strength, deflection, and long- duration load. The low modulus of elasticity of the fiber-glass rods together with the lack of a good bond between the rods and the concrete, caused the neutral axis of the beam to move up, thus reducing the compression area of the beam. The beams then failed in compression before the fiber-glass reinforcement could be fully utilized. While ineffective as plain reinforcement in concrete beams, fiber-glass rods, with their low modulus of elasticity and high strength, theoretically show promise if used as tension elements for prestressing concrete by the pretensioning method.

Investigation of expanding grout and concrete : report 1 : preliminary studies by Billy J Houston ( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Portland cement and grout are construction materials used in widely varied types of structures. One of the major disadvantages of these materials is drying shrinkage. Researchers have worked on this problem for many years, and technology has advanced to the point where products are now being manufactured which when used in protland-cement concrete can cause expansion to counteract shrinkage or, depending on amounts used, cause positive expansion. Two expansive mixtures were investigated in the program described herein: Type K expansive cement, which consists of portland cement clinker, anhydrous calcium aluminate sulfate, lime (CaO), and calcium sulfate (CsSO4); and Type M expansive cement, which is a mixture of portland cement, calcium aluminate cement, and calcium sulfate. The purpose of the research effort was to develop expansive concrete and grout mixtures for use in structures in connection with underground nuclear testing. (Author)

Shock-absorbing materials : report 3 : selection of a suitable low-density concrete for backpacking for a proposed field test by G. C Hoff ( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The objective of this study was to investigate three insulating concretes being considered for use as a backpacking material to determine their handling, mixing, and placing characteristics, as well as the density variation, plastic shrinkage, aggregate segregation, and rate of hardening occurring in large sections made with each concrete, and to determine the problems that may be associated with the use of these concretes in a prototype situation. Metal, half-scale model sections of a typical rock opening and tunnel liner were used in the study. The annular space of each section was pumped full or partially full of cellular, vermiculite, or polystyrene concrete. Each concrete was evaluated on the basis of ease of handling, batching, and placing and on the density variations occurring in both the unhardened and hardened condition of the concrete. In situ density variations were studied by the use of three techniques: ULTRASONIC PULSE VELOCITY, HEAT DEVELOPMENT, AND HARDENED CONCRETE SAMPLES. Fresh concrete unit weights were used for the unhardened concrete quality control. Rate-of-hardening tests were conducted to aid in the estimation of form-removal times. Methods of reducing plastic shrinkage and bleeding are discussed. (Author, modified-PL)
Initial evaluation of the free-field response of the large blast load generator by Thomas E Kennedy ( Book )
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tests were conducted in a 23-foot-diameter, nuclear-blast-simulation device in order to calibrate the device and to determine the free-field response of soil specimens loaded dynamically. Two free-field sand specimens, each 10 feet deep, were tested at overpressures ranging from 39 to 450 psi. Twenty-nine tests were made on one specimen and five on the other. Soil tests, conducted both preshot and postshot to determine changes in the physical composition of the specimens, are described. Measurements of blast pressure, free-field pressure, free-field acceleration, and free-field arrival time were made. The results are tabulated. The regions within the specimen affected by the boundaries of the test chamber were approximately defined. (Author)

The objective of this study was to define the state of the art pertaining to the design and analysis of both homogeneous and reinforced concrete deep beams. The study was accomplished by reviewing information found in thirty references, i.e. technical journals and reports. Each of the references is summarized, the important conclusions resulting from the study are presented, and recommendations are made as to needs for additional study. (Author)
