Abstract:

Static and dynamic tests were conducted on thick-walled tubes to determine relative values for mechanical properties. The dynamic loading was produced in test specimens as a pressure pulse derived from the propellant gas discharged from a rifle. Results indicate an increase in yield strength of 10 to 20 under dynamic conditions. Procedure is given and results are discussed. Author
