Title: PRESTRESSED CONCRETE SPHERICAL CONTAINMENT VESSEL

Abstract

A description is given of a 20-foot-OD, 16-foot-ID spherical concrete shell, prestressed, with an outer steel skin, which was designed to serve as a container for explosions. This 20-foot containment vessel. which has not been built, is described in Part I. Design specifications and reproductions of the original engineering drawings are also given. Part II describes a quarter-scale model of the vessel, which was built and tested to destruction with high explosives. Results of the tests are described, and details are given. (auth)
