Abstract : A series of 55 underwater explosives were fired against an instrumented Floating Shock Platform (FSP). The FSP is a specially designed barge regularly employed as a shock test vehicle for shipboard equipments up to 40,000 lb; for this calibration study three consecutive test loadsheavy, medium, and light-were installed to simulate actual equipment test conditions. Objectives were to define shock-response characteristics of the FSP under nonstandard attack configurations, and to evaluate shock measuring instrumentation based on accelerometer transducers rather than the commonly employed velocity transducers. Shock-response data is under analysis and will be the subject of a subsequent report; this report deals with operational and instrumentation aspects, including tabulation of the test geometries, test configurations, and the installed instruments.
