Five prototype tubes were evaluated and an extensive investigation of the fabrication and processing procedures was conducted. All five tubes were new starts built within the reporting period see AD-426 811. The separate tube fabrications and processings were undertaken as a step-by-step attack on the problems of temperature, metallic deposits, and gassiness observed in previous starts and in the investigation of mock-up structures. Details on the investigations and on the individual tube starts are given. The conclusions and recommendations resulting from these activities are presented. Author
