Abstract:

This report contains a summary discussions of geotechnical programs that were conducted in Fiscal Year 1980 FY 80 for U.S. Air Forces USAFs Missile X MX advanced ICBM program. The purpose of the geotechnical studies is to provide technical information to support MX siting decisions and requirements and to provide data needed by other associate MX contractors and government agencies. This effort, called Verification studies, is primarily for the purpose of verifying the suitability of areas that were identified in the prior literature-based studies. Verification study results provide more precise definition of the suitable area where MX shelters and supporting facilities can be sited. In addition, the results are used to guide the scope and location of the other geotechnical studies that are proceeding in Nevada and Utah. Other geotechnical programs summarized in this report were conducted to provide specific technical data to satisfy various MX project needs.
