Larger igneous masses are generally accompanied by minor intrusions in the form of dykes, sills, and sometimes laccoliths. Attention has recently been drawn, in some detail, to numbers of these inExpand
Reorientation Measurement in 56Fe
The reorientation effect in Coulomb excitation has been used to measure the static quadrupole moment of the first 2+ level of 56Fe. Using beams of 4He and 16O on thin highly enriched targets andExpand

Coulomb excitation of Pt nuclei
Abstract Coulomb excitation of the second excited states of 192 Pt and 194 Pt gave B (E2, 0 + → 2 + ′) values of 0.020(3) and 0.0111(17) e 2 · b 2 respectively. The 199.3 keV level of 195 Pt wasExpand

The Effect of Air Gaps on the Propagation of Detonation in Charges Consisting of Stacked Blocks of Cast TNT
Abstract : A series of experiments was conducted to examine the influence on the uniformity of detonation propagation of air gaps between large blocks of slow-cooled cast TNT. Donor-receptorExpand
Nuclear g factors in $sup 55$Fe
The ( alpha ,n) reaction on natural chromium was used to study levels in /sup 55/Fe up to 2.5 MeV excitation. Intensities and angular distributions of the decay gamma rays were measured, yieldingExpand
Portable Ultrahigh Speed Photographic Field Laboratory Suitable For The Study Of Self-Luminous And Nonluminous Detonations In Solid High Explosive Charges (10 To 130 Pound TNT Equivalent)
Studies of detonation phenomena in solid high explosive charges at Defence Research Establishment Suffield, undertaken in 1977, generated a requirement for a photographic range facility which wouldExpand
