Abstract:

The paper explains the need for mechanical proofing tests on equipments, sub-assemblies and components and briefly describes the first bump test machine built to carry out such tests, and the machines shortcomings. The characteristics of the current British bump test and the reasons for its form are dealt with, leading to the design and manufacture of the 501b and 2501b machines currently used in the U.K. capable of applying the test. The design, operation and performance testing of these machines is dealt with in some detail. Author
