Abstract : Peak pressure calibration, pressure-time profile response tests, and pressure-resistance hysteresis of the Manganin in C-7 epoxy transducer are described. It is shown that predicted and measured pressure-time profiles agree to within 10 percent. Also presented are: the transformation of profile measurements from transducer to test specimen, Hugoniot temperature calculations for C-7 epoxy up to about 500 kbar peak pressure, a method of constructing gages of Manganin in conducting materials, and gage field test results on the FLAT TOP series of events.
