Abstract:

A 5.1-pound shock tester the size of a hand tool is described. For items the weight of piezoelectric accelerometers, the tester produces shock pulses ranging from 400 g to 1000 g peak with durations of one millisecond and velocity changes up to 15 fps. In operation, two 6.2-ounce, constant-load spring motors accelerate a small, 77.5-gram test vehicle and payload down a 6-inch barrel at a maximum impact velocity of 10 fps. Impact is against a thin rubber disk bonded to a high-impact nylon plastic spring. The hand grip of the tester makes up 80 percent of the tester weight and is the reaction mass for the shock vehicle.
