Abstract:

The design of a gage capable of measuring free field stress, strain, and acceleration is re ported. Prototypes based on the above design were fabricated and tested in a test tank capable of producing dynamic pressures up to 800 psi and static pressures up to 1000 psi. The above gages were used to investigate the static and dynamic characteristics of the test tank. Developmental soil gage prototypes and a field system were developed for and used in a nuclear field experi ment. A description of this field system and test results are given. The field system was later refabricated into two systems one remained at UED, the other was delivered to the Air Force Shock Tube Facility for further evaluation. A description of the Shock Tube System is given. Author
