Abstract:

Drop tests were performed at -65 F and at ambient temperature on a standard Little John motor container in which was enclosed an inert Phase II Littlejohn rocket motor XM-26 E1. Instrumentation as used to record impact acceleration sustained by the motor and container during the tests. The tests resulted in shearing the rubber shock absorber, shearing the saddle bolts, and fracturing one of the inner steel supports. The rubber shock absorbers system mounting, bolts, and rubber absorbers is inadequate. The large number of lid bolts is not necessary. Author
