Crater Measurements

Description: From abstract: Based upon the results of Project Pre-Schooner new cratering curves for basalt have been developed. The deepest detonation Charlie, produced a mound of broken rock and earth that had a crater-like depression in its center entirely above the preshot ground surface.

Craters From Four Equal Charges in a Horizontal Square Array

Description: Craters were observed resulting from square arrays of 64-pound charges at various spacings and depths. The closest spacings yielded craters very like those from single 256-pound charges, while wider spacings yielded craters more or less square in shape and with a mound or pier at the center. Generally, the areas so uncovered were greater than for single 256-pound charges, except for very deep charges. Volumes, too, were enhanced by this configuration by as much as a factor of three. If the same factor is maintained for nuclear charges, the cost per unit volume of a crater from such an array will be within 20 percent of that for a single charge.

Creep in model pillars. [Salt, trona, and potash ore]

Description: A study was made of the deformational behavior (creep) of pillars made from three quasi-plastic rock--salt, trona, and potash ore. The first phase of this study considers the design of a model pillar suitable for creep tests; in the second phase, six model pillars were prepared from salt from two sources, from trona, and from potash ore. The pillars in each group were subjected to a different but constant axial stress, and the axial strain was measured for 1,000 hours. An analysis of the data shows that in general the creep rate for these model pillars can be expressed by the relationship .epsilon = K/sub 1/ sigma/sub 0//sup n/, where .epsilon is the strain rate, sigma/sub 0/ is the applied stress, and K/sub 1/ and n are constants. For the rocks included in this test, n ranged from 2.4 to 3.3.
