General Purpose Fissile Package (GPFP) prototypes of two configurations, 16 in. and 18 1/2 in. diameter drum overpacks, were subjected to the free-drop, crush, puncture, and thermal Hypothetical Accident Condition (HAC) sequential tests for 10CFR71, Type B packagings. The tests demonstrated that the prototypes are very robust, easily withstanding the structural tests. The tests also confirmed that the urethane foam-filled overpack was able to withstand the thermal test.
