This report covers the preliminary data obtained in a metallurgical study of the three enriched uranium slugs which ruptured in the 100-C Pile. The three slugs were from PT-105-532-A2, ``Irradiation of Enriched Uranium Slugs,'' a test conducted by Pile Technology for the purpose of studying the effects of high specific powers in uranium slugs. The uranium used in this test was enriched to 1.75.
