The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in conjunction with the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Fissile Materials Disposition, planned to eliminate stockpiles of weapons-grade, highly enriched uranium by down-blending the material to low-enriched uranium.  In support of Washington Group International’s structural design, SGH performed seismic soil-structure interaction (SSI) studies of the new pit disassembly and conversion facility.
