Abstract:

A series of pyrotechnic shock tests were conducted to evaluate several concepts of attenuating the shock generated by the pyrotechnically actuated nuts during Transtage separation on the Titan IIIC launch vehicle. An orifice installed between the pyrotechnic device and the separation mechanism piston reduced shock levels by approximately 40. This volume contains the shock response spectra from each of the 15 accelerometers for all 51 test runs.
