  • Dynamic fracture initiation and propagation in Al 7075-T6 was investigated experimentally using the optical method of reflected caustics combined with a simplified high speed photography. A crack propagation testing configuration consisting of a three point bending specimen loaded In a drop weighting was used. It was found that prior to crack initiation the stress intensity factor time record calculated using the dynamic impact load and a static formula disagrees with the actual stress Intensity factor measured by caustics. The impact fracture tests are performed. With use of Al 7075-T6 band plate test specimens with a V-notch on their one side.more » The dynamic stress intensity factor K{sub id} are given. With this, the authors experimentally calculated the dynamic fracture toughness K{sub ID}.« less
  • Eddy current is the only nondestructive technique used to determine the extent of the Li--Al alloy in tubular aluminum target tubes. It was desired to have an independent nondestructive method to confirm the extent of the alloy at the tube ends. The method explored and described in this paper is to provide a neutron radioscopic image of 25 cm sections of each tube end. Two small-source neutron radiologic systems were used in this study, a mobile accelerator neutron radiography system and a californium-252 system. These two systems have been shown to provide an accurate alternative method for the determination ofmore » the extent of Li--Al alloy in target elements. 8 refs., 6 figs., 1 tab.« less
  • Although widely recognized, the importance of secondary porosity in the overall porosity development of petroleum reservoirs is often debated. One camp suggests that dissolution of framework grain results in significant increases in porosity, while other workers argue that secondary porosity simply represents a redistribution of primary porosity. The research presented here supports the former scenario and suggests that this is an important aspect of porosity development. Many petroleum reservoirs of the west-central San Joaquin basin occur in Miocene sandstones derived from erosion of the Salinian block as it migrated northwestward along the San Andreas fault. Petrographic examination of core samplesmore » from west-central oil fields reveals a similar history of porosity for each despite differing depositional and tectonic histories. Initial compaction accompanied by alteration and squashing of volcanic grains resulted in near total destruction of primary porosity. Continuing compaction altered the geometry of the secondary pores to create intergranular secondary porosity which mimics primary intergranular porosity. Although difficult to quantify, collapsed clay rims and rearrangement of grain fragments indicate substantial destruction of secondary porosity. These features are present in all oil fields studied, regardless of depositional or post-depositional or post-depositional histories. These observations indicate that the secondary porosity is not simply a redistribution of primary porosity. They also support previous assertions of secondary porosity destruction and suggest that this process is much more widespread than is normally recognized. Thus, mass transfer of material, including Al, out of the system may be more significant than is generally acknowledged.« less
