This section presents individual reports on internal projects supported by the Time Allocation Committee on the VP2200, VPP300 and SGI Power Challenge. The reports were prepared by the individual principal investigators in a standard format. In some cases several projects are combined into a single report. At the time of going to press reports had not been received for a small number of projects.
