NUCLEAR EXCAVATION RESEARCH

RESEARCH TO DATE HAS CONFIRMED THE BASIC THEORIES OF CRATERING APPLICABLE TO NUCLEAR EXCAVATION. CONTINUING ADVANCES AND IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE EXPECTED, AS WELL AS NUMEROUS NEW APPLICATIONS. STUDIES SO FAR INDICATE A VARIETY OF REALISTIC USES FOR NUCLEAR EXPLOSIVES IN CONSTRUCTION. SOME OFFER ECONOMIES AND OTHERS SHOW POSSIBILITIES FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF PROJECTS CONSIDERED IMPRACTICAL BY OTHER MEANS. INTEREST SHOWN BY THE ENGINEERING PROFESSION WILL BE A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION OF NUCLEAR EXPLOSIVES AS A NEW AND POWERFUL CONSTRUCTION TOOL. /AUTHOR/
