Abstract:

Phase II, detail design, analysis, and test has been completed except for some specimen testing. The uncompleted specimen testing consists primarily of tests involving the structural layer of the composite wall, but these tests have been underway for some time and are nearing completion. Phase III, prototype fabrication and preliminary qualification has been in progress for about four months with work proceeding on the fabrication of the composite tunnel wall, the packaging canister, and the test carrier to support the completed tunnel during testing. The rigid sandwich floor structure has been completed and has been joined to the rigid foam mandrel.
