Abstract:

During the month of August metal beads and glass beads for efflux testing at Philadelphia were separated, measured, and recorded for the following bead properties as defined by our test procedures a Average diameter with 95 confidence limits b Range of diameters for 30 beads c Percent of beads within 14 mil and 12 mil of the average diameter, to 95 confidence limits d Percent spherical beads e Maximum bulk density f Average bead density g Percent voids at maximum packing and h Photographs showing surface roughness, voids, size, and shape. Equipment and procedures were designed to obtain the above listed properties. Work was continued on the mathematical analysis of accelerometer performance, and procedures set up to clean equipment and beads. Author
