Earthquake Resistance of Earth and Rock-Fill Dams, Report 2: Analysis of Response of Rifle Gap Dam to Project Rulison Underground Nuclear Detonation

Description: Summary: The motion of Rifle Gap Dam was measured in September 1969 during the Project RULISON underground nuclear explosion. The observed response was then compared with the response computed in a mathematical model. Observed and computed responses were similar. From this study it appears that the mathematical models used are applicable to the design and analysis of soil structures, at least for ground motion intensities comparable to those observed at Rifle Gap Dam.

Vibroseismic Survey, Railroad Test Embankment, Aikman, Kansas

Description: Report regarding refraction seismic and vibratory tests conducted on a railroad test embankment near Aikman, Kansas as well as attenuation and dynamic laboratory tests. The refraction seismic tests indicated the existence of two distinct velocity zones, one for the embankment and one for the underlying limestone bedrock.

PHYSICAL EFFECTS OF THE HANFORD WINDSTORMS OF JANUARY 11, 1972 AND JANUARY 21, 1972

Description: The windstorm of January 11 caused a minor amount of damage to the Hanford Reservation and Hanford vicinity. Damage sustained to Hanford Reservation structures (roofing, flashing, fences, windows) was approximately $20,000. One building did receive structural damage to roof members. Evidence that wind pressures did not reach 30 lb/ft{sup 2} during the January 11 windstorm was provided in the fact that specially designed exterior wall panels did not fail. These panels were designed and carefully proof-tested to insure that they would fail at a loading of 30 lb/ft{sup 2} as a requirement of structural safety in the original design-construction program in 1952-1954. There was one power outage on the Hanford Reservation due to the January 11 windstorm (Rattlesnake Mountain Observatory). Damage to power lines and electrical facilities amounted to about $1600. Damage to structures in the Hanford vicinity (excluding the Hanford Reservation) from the January 11 windstorm was estimated to cost $13,000. This does not include damage to private residences, etc., which has been estimated by others to be near $250,000. Power line damage in the Hanford vicinity amounted to about $80,000, of which $60,000 was accounted for in the loss of four transmission towers in the tie-line between Priest Rapids and Wanapum Dams. The January 21 windstorm, which struck Toppenish, Washington, was a straight-wind of the catabatic foehn type and not a tornado-type wind as described in newspaper accounts. No funnel cloud was associated with this windstorm. The maximum gust was about 85 mph at 30 ft above the ground. Cost estimates of damage in Toppenish were not available. There were no power outages or structural damage on the Hanford Reservation from the January 21 windstorm. Total damage to the Hanford Reservation from the two windstorms was estimated to be about $22,500.

PIPING & EQUIPMENT ELECTRICAL HEATING CONTROL SYSTEM

Description: All sodium piping and equipment is heat traced to maintain the sodium in a liquid state. The Pipe and Equipment Electrical Heating Control System controls the rate of heat application to sodium piping and equipment during heatup of empty systems prior to filling with sodium and to maintain heat in operating sodium systems. The Pipe and Equipment Electric Heating Control System is designed to aid in detecting malfunctions and failures within the system. The Control portion except for the control thermocouple is electrically independent of the alarm portion, thus providing a more reliable check on the overall system. Instrumentation is modular to provide for easy removal and replacement. Detailed maintenance procedures will be developed as a part of the detail design work and will be included in the Operation and Maintenance Manual. Procurement specifications will call for detailed maintenance and calibration procedures for each type of instrument.

COLLECTIVE PHENOMENA IN ACCELERATORS

Description: Recent years have witnessed the development of accelerators of ever-larger current, both peak and average, as well as a proliferation of storage rings of ever-greater luminosity. Consequently, there is considerable interest in and growing concern with, the phenomena which limit beam currents and beam densities, namely, the collective modes of behavior of relativistic particle beams. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that the collective behavior can be controlled, at least to some extent, turned to good advantage, and employed for collective acceleration in devices such as the electron ring accelerator. Quite naturally then, almost every accelerator conference during the last five years has had a review paper on collective effects, while at the same time the number of original papers in this area now exceeds many hundreds. And thus I am faced with the dilemma of being unable to give a comprehensive and complete review (such a review, incidentally, would be most valuable; in my judgment the time is ripe for a comprehensive monograph on the subject.), and yet finding it difficult, in a brief review, to be comprehensible, balanced, and yet fresh. I have resolved the dilemma by firstly supplying sufficient references as to allow the interested reader to readily approach and efficiently attack the literature. Secondly, I take a few steps away from the details and the realities of the field and with the advantage of the broader view so gained, describe the basic many-body physics underlying the subject. Thirdly, I present a few examples of collective behavior, in part to make the general remarks concrete, but in large measure in order to illustrate the beauty of this kind of physics. Finally, I make some remarks on methods for control of undesirable collective behavior, and on the present state of understanding of the field.
