The report describes the work performed to bring the Large Blast Load Generator to the point where actual test firings in the completely assembled equipment could be undertaken. The areas of major effort were development of suitable explosive and propellant primary charges, containments and firing trains assisting in proof testing the individual firing tubes to demonstrate their strength and freedom from flaws drawing up recommendations for preparations, precautions and operating protocol for the initial test firings assisting in development of sealing techniques to permit performance of high pressure hydrostatic tests on the pressure vessel and providing engineering analysis of the hydraulic jack system for the platen rail lift mechanism.
