Abstract:

The Naval Weapons Center is conducting a series of hydraulic ram effects tests on simulated fuel tanks. 12.7mm API projectiles are fired at a fluid-filled rectangular tank with a stretched rubber membrane entry wall and a thin 20 inch x 20 inch aluminum exit wall. The computer code SATANS has been used, in conjunction with NWC code for the fluid pressure, to predict the response of the exit wall to the passage of the 12.7mm projectiles. This report presents the computer results.
