Abstract:

The shock wave characteristics of an AVCO three-dimensional weave, carbon-carbon material AVCO 3DCC were experimentally investigated and analytically modeled. Using the gas gun facility, Hugoniot and wave attenuation tests were performed on flat specimens cut from arcs of the material. From these tests, equation-of-state inputs for use with the PUFF computer code were derived and used to make correlations with the wave attenuation experiments. Explanation of the 3DCC material behavior is given based upon the degree of correlation between the calculations and experiments.
