System requirements: PC compatible; Windows; Mouse. The U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment station was actively involved in the development, testing, and fielding of a wide variety of grout and concrete mixtures in support of underground nuclear test programs at the Nevada Test Site. Detailed information on mixture designs, laboratory data such as unconfined compressive strength, sonic velocity, density, and modulus, and similar results for actual as-placed mixtures have been archived in a database. There are 264 mixture designs that were fielded at 2132 locations on 48 underground nuclear test sites between Feb. 1970 and Sept. 1992. This software is designed to query that database.
