1 Reproduction interdite © ALMA EUROPEAN CONSORTIUM Reproduction forbidden Design, Manufacture, Transport and Integration in Chile of ALMA Antennas Page 1 Design, Manufacture, Transport and Integration on-site in Chile of ALMA Antennas REFLECTOR PANEL DELTA QUALIFICATION PM# February 2006 Dated November 18 h, 2005

2 Reproduction interdite © ALMA EUROPEAN CONSORTIUM Reproduction forbidden Design, Manufacture, Transport and Integration in Chile of ALMA Antennas Page 2 Present Qualification Status According to document BD-TN-ML-010 (Reflector Panel Qualification Status, dated March 2003) a comprehensive qualification test campaign has successfully been passed by the present Panel design Testing on Sample Sealing Tests UV Resistance of the Sealant Thermal Cycling Test Thermo-Optical Measurements RF Reflectivity Measurements Accelerated Corrosion Test Electrical Conductivity Measurement Sandwich Peeling Test Impact Test Coating Corrosion Tests Coating Adhesion Test Testing on Prototype Panel Surface measurement Sun Exposure Test Thermal Cycling Test Modal Survey Test Static Load Test Vibration Test Fatigue Test
