Abstract:

Both the advantages and limitations of the shear type, sealing connector, Model 1957, used in these studies are summarized and analyzed. The goal of 99.99 reliability was reached to within .08 and proven attainable. Modification of the connector to eliminate imperfection of the 1957 field study model has been initiated and is nearing completion. Final verification of these modifications will require further field observation in addition to the laboratory evidence accumulated at the date of this paper. It is expected that a commercial form of the connector utilizing the improvements made possible by field studies 1 and 2 will appear in 1958. Author
