Operation hardtack II : structural response and permanent displacement measurements by R. H Sievers( Book )

2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Subsurface accelerations and strains from an underground detonation by F. A Pieper( Book )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Planning Thermal Radiation Experiments at High Flux( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report covers analyses; experimentation; equipment design and fabrication; instrumentation design, selection, fabrication, and tests; and recording equipment selection in preparation for high thermal flux experiments on soil surfaces. The reported effort is preparatory to a continuing program to obtain empirical data and examine parametric relationships on the response of different surfaces and the formation of an overlying thermal and dust layer resulting from the thermal pulse of a nuclear weapon
Review and Assessment of Reduced Emissions/Clean Burning Diesel Engines for Integration into the Army Inventory( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This effort examines the availability of diesel engines having reduced emission/clean burning characteristics for potential trial in 4000 lb. capacity forklift trucks to be used in closed and semi-closed environments. The effort includes identification of substances which have been identified in diesel engine exhausts, health and safety considerations relating to those substances as established or recommended by U.S. and foreign governmental and professional agencies, and ranges of concentration of the substances which have been noted. Twenty-nine diesel engines which might be suited for use in 4000 (and 6000) lb. forklift trucks are characterized by manufacture-provided descriptive information and test data. A ranking scheme based on exhaust emissions and other parameters over a standardized work cycle was developed and applied to identify the candidate engines which appear most promising for the Army's application and, thereby, most appropriate for further testing. Analysis of the data did not identify a candidate engine suitable for use in a closed environment without precautions or limitations for human exposure. These questions are to be subjects of further analysis and empirical testing
Nuclear warfare water contamination( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The fallout contamination of watersheds and water supplies resulting from surface burst nuclear weapons is sufficiently high to require the use of water purification equipment to produce potable water that meets the current radiological water quality standards. Problems with existing radiation detection and monitoring equipment are discussed. A water contamination model is described. (Author)

Structural response and permanent displacement measurements by R. H Sievers( )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Measurements and visual observations made during the Hardtack II series of underground shots provide basis for conclusions regarding shock-resistant design of protection for cavities in rock and qualitative prediction of permanent displacements in rock due to nuclear detonations. Vibration measurements on blast-resistant construction in soil provided non-nuclear test results which apply to shockresistant design. With varying soil cover, the compressive mode predominated in arch structures and a mass of soil apparently acted with the structure that varied in magnitude in inverse fashion with two depths of cover. Underground structural harmonic response theories were in part verified, for some structures, though the absence of an appreciable flexural mode in buried arch structures was significant. (Author)
