RIGID VINYL MODEL PREDICTION OF PLAINVIEW (AGEH-1) ELASTIC STRUCTURAL RESPONSE

This report describes the experimentation results of the 1:20 scale rigid vinyl model of PLAINVIEW (AGEH-1). Static load experiments were performed on the model and the results compared favorably with full scale stress and deflection trials data. Also included in the report are stress predictions for future full scale sea trials and recommendations for additional instrumentation and revised operational "redline" strain values.
