  • During the summer of 1991, a rocket-triggered lightning test was performed on an earth-covered munitions bunker located at Ft. McClellan, Alabama. Nine negative cloud-to-ground lightning flashes, comprising a total of 38 individual return strokes, were successfully initiated and directed to designated attachment points on the structure. High resolution measurements were simultaneously made of the incident flash currents, both return-stroke and continuing current components, and of responses at 24 test points located throughout the bunker. The response quantities that were recorded included currents, voltages, and electric and magnetic fields. The maximum responses observed at each test point, both as measured andmore » as linearly scaled to median and severe return-stroke incident current amplitudes, are presented and discussed. 8 refs.« less

  • A general purpose finite element computer code has been used to analyze the steady state and transient response of a confined fluid that is heated volumetrically. The numerical procedure is demonstrated to be capable of resolving flow fields of considerable complexity without undue computational expense. Results are discussed for a Grashof number range (4.0 x 10/sup 4/ to 4.0 x 10/sup 6/) in which the flow varies from a steady, single cell configuration to a multiple cell configuration that includes a periodic interaction.
