Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: At the time of this conference, a deep underground base was a viable alternative for basing strategic defense systems. Among many of the questions that needed to be considered in establishing the suitability of such a basing system was how water would impact the survivability of the base. A hypothetical geology was proposed (Generic Mountain "C ") which was analyzed by a number of private companies and individuals. A consensus was generally reached that the model contained inconsistencies, thus leading to several revisions. Although analyses of water flow were done, there seemed to be little confidence in their estimates and it became evident to practical tunnelers that a closer look at predictive techniques was required.
