The survey and collection of relevant literature was continued at an accelerated pace due to the addition of personnel to this program. The cataloguing and crossindexing of the documents collected to date is well under way, and the document library has been established within the Science Library at the University of Denver. A method for investigating the microstructural aspects of shock hardening in metals was initiated during this report period. This technique involves electron microscope investigations of thin specimens produced by electropolishing techniques. The initial efforts to prepare thin specimens of 2014 aluminum met with limited success. Additional development will be required to produce a routine technique for sample preparation.
