Impact Modelling and Reduced-Scale Tests

  • Brian Evason


We have been told that the transportation flasks have been designed with large factors of safety against failure due to foreseeable impacts, and of how this has been confirmed by experiment. We have also heard that credible doubts have been raised as to the validity of the tests at a reduced scale. I am sure that you wish me to comment on the question of whether or not the flasks are proof against any conceivable collision. That I cannot do as I have had no involvement, nor sufficiently detailed information, to justify such comment.
