Title: Data acquisition, handling, and display for the heater experiments at Stripa

Abstract

In June 1978, a joint Swedish/American research team began acquiring data from the Stripa mine in Sweden, 340 m below the surface. Electrical heaters are used to assess the suitability of granite rock as a repository for radioactive waste material. Extensive instrumentation also measures temperature, stress, and displacement effects caused by these heaters. This report describes the data acquisition system, its design considerations, capabilities, and operational use. The techniques employed to detect and analyze any anomalous experimental results are also described. Environmental considerations are described in an appendix.
