Abstract:

In Project DANNY BOY a nuclear device of low yield was detonated in basalt at the U. S. Atomic Energy Commissions Nevada Test Site as a part of Weapons Effects Tests. The Waterways Experiment Station determined pertinent physical properties of the basalt and developed a grout mixture with matching properties for use in grouting scientific instruments in holes drilled near the shot location grouted 8 deep and 9 surface holes and cast specimens of the field-mixed grout to determine its physical properties at shot time.
