Abstract : This report summarizes progress made during the second year of the DARPA Navy Hydrothermal Oxidation (HTO) program covering the period of May 1996 through April 1997. The report follows the same format as the prior monthly reports and presents a task by task description of activities according to the work breakdown structure (WBS) adopted for the project. In general, excellent progress has been made on the program during this second year. Activities completed include the remaining HTO systems engineering tasks, supercritical water oxidation corrosion studies at the University of Texas, all pilot-scale HTO engineering tests, and preliminary and final design of the HTO demonstration unit. Procurement and fabrication of equipment for the demonstration unit was started and is nearly complete, and assembly of the demonstration unit was started.
