Abstract:

Neary 8,000 Squibs Mk 1 Mod 0 were fired with a 4.00-microfarad capacitor in order to provide data to serve as a basis of deciding on a proper statistical distribution function to express the response of the squib to adiabatically delivered electrical energy pulses. The Log-Logistic Model was not completely satisfactory but considerably better than the Log-Gaussian Model. With the use of suitable tolerance intervals, the Log-Logistic Model can be made to include the observed data. A direction is indicated which future work might take in developing a more accurate statistical model.
