Abstract:

To prepare for the planned Contained Firing Facility at the LLNL Site 300, we investigated various multilayered shrapnel protection schemes to minimize the amount of material used in shielding. As a result of testing, we found that two pieces of 1-in.-thick mild steel plate provide adequate general-purpose protection from shrapnel generated by normal hydrodynamic and cylinder shots at Bunker 801.
