Photographs of Cable Response to Live Fire (CAROLFIRE) Tests: Penlight Typical Setups (NUREG/CR-6931, Volume 1)

The photographs on this page depict the typical cable and equipment setups used in the CAROLFIRE Penlight tests discussed in NUREG/CR-6931. Although they were taken during the tests, these photogaphs are not intended to provide detailed test documentation. Rather, they provide a generic representation of the facilities used, the cables tested, and the appearance of those cables (both before and after the Penlight tests).
