Abstract:

The design and operation of a newly developed testing system for hydrodynamically simulating the pressure-time response typical of large cal cannon are described. The system is capable of producing peak pressures in excess of 44,000 psi in rise times of about 3 msec. It is also capable of producing a wide variety of pressuretime curves at lower pressures andor longer rise times. The system may be used for the study of a wide variety of pressure vessel configurations under high loading rates. Author
