The primary task during this period was material evaluations for the Diablo Hawk and Hybla Gold events. Tuff, grout, concrete, saturated sand and reconstituted tuff were tested. The material evaluations are used for initial nuclear test site selection, detailed site evaluation for purposes of insuring successful stemming and containment and support of related experiments. The majority of the tests were uniaxial strain tests with accompanying physical property and ultrasonic velocity measurements. Additionally, hydrostatic and triaxial compression, heat transfer, burst, and permeability tests were conducted.
