Abstract:

Dimensions and geometry of the Dugout crater, produced by the detonation of a row of five 18,144 kg nitromethane charges in basalt, were analyzed. Factors for the enhancement in row charge crater dimensions over those of the comparable single charge crater were generally larger than those developed from the Pre-Buggy 2 row charges in alluvium.
