BATTELLE COLUMBUS DIV OH
Pagination or Media Count:
A 5-foot-diameter, spherical blast containment chamber was designed for the repeated containment of 40-pound charges of TNT. The vessel included a reinforced access port 18 inches in diameter, closed by a pair of inward- swinging cafe doors which overlapped the port reinforcing ring all around the edges. Four vessels were built to this design. Two of the vessels, mounted on cradles identical to the trailer-mounted version, but without the trailers, were experimentally evaluated for their blast containment capability.
