Abstract:

In order to investigate and define some of the variables involved in the impact testing of liquid explosives and monopropellants, a standard Olin Mathieson drop-weight tester was instrumentated for dynamic pressure measurements and high speed camera studies. This instrumentation allows pressure measurements up to 7000 kgssq cm which is the calculated burst pressure of the rupture diaphragm in the sample cup assembly. The high speed camera studies provide a visual display of the impact - initiation - explosion process as it occurs in the sample cup assembly. Author
