Description: This report provides new liquidus temperature (T<sub>L</sub>) versus composition data that can be used to reduce uncertainty in T<sub>L</sub> calculation for DWPF glass. According to the test plan and test matrix design PNNL has measured T<sub>L</sub> for 53 glasses within and just outside of the current DWPF processing composition window. The T<sub>L</sub> database generated under this task will directly support developing and enhancing the current T<sub>L</sub> process-control model. Preliminary calculations have shown a high probability of increasing HLW loading in glass produced at the SRS and Hanford. This increase in waste loading will decrease the lifecycle tank cleanup costs by decreasing process time and the volume of waste glass produced.
