Abstract:

The reportpg reviews the requirements and operation of a conventional mechanical artillery fuze. A comparison is drawn between the conventional system and a proposed fluid equivalent system which utilizes a pure fluid i. e., no moving parts timer. The problems associated with packaging the fluid system components within a standard fuze contour are discussed and possible solutions to some of the problems are indicated. A detailed discussion of the operation and system logic of a pure fluid, feasibility demonstration timer is presented. Author
