  • The determination of monomer sequence distributions in polymer backbones, and the variation of these distributions to optimize polymer properties, is the focus of considerable industrial research activity. Details of copolymer molecular structure as a function of method of synthesis and processing history have been elucidated using a variety of combined approaches. A controlled sequence polyester has been synthesized through the interfacial polymerization of di(p-chlorocarbonylphenyl) isopthalate with the disodium salt of hydroquinone. Infrared bands related to the C-O motion have been calibrated against known structural parameters as determined by NMR analysis. The infrared method extended the range of samples that couldmore » be analyzed since a minimal amount of sample was required and the diad distributions could be determined for insoluble materials.« less
  • This work involved the response of a liner-bolt system installed on the wall of the DIAMOND FORTUNE cavity, a 22-m diameter nearly semi-spherical chamber in tuff, at the Nevada Test Site. DIAMOND FORTUNE is a low-yield nuclear test of the Defense Nuclear Agency which was performed in April, 1992. A 1.4-m square, 2.5-cm thick steel plate was anchored by 9-m long bolts: four 2.5-cm diameter bolts at the comers and a 5-cm diameter bolt at the center. The bolt ends daylighted in a tunnel surrounding the cavity, and were tensioned from there. The system was aped with 20 data channelsmore » for strain, acceleration, contact pressure, and temperature. We relate the thermal analyses and the 3-dimensional dynamic analyses performed for this project, and we present the test results which indicated the excellent response of this system to the high dynamic loads and temperatures.« less
  • An overpressurization experiment was conducted on a scale-model of a reinforced concrete containment building. The test was terminated when tears formed in the steel liner. Virtually all leakage occurred through a large tear that propagated along the edge of a thickened insert plate that surrounded a piping penetration. This paper describes the results of a post-test finite element analysis of this region. Results of the analysis indicate that the large tear initiated due to high strains produced by a stud anchor. The results of the analysis also suggest that a relatively simple analytical technique can be used to estimate themore » pressure at which tears will initiate near penetrations in lined containment structures. 5 refs., 8 figs., 1 tab.« less
