Abstract:

An ACA-805 prototype container with an inert BL-755 item was received from ADTCSDMT, Eglin AFB FL and subjected to the Vibration Repetitive Shock Test in accordance with Method 5019 of Federal Test Method Standard FTMS No. 101. Prior to vibration, the Vacuum Retention Technique was performed in accordance with Method 5009.1 of FTMS No. 101. The container failed to pass both tests. Vibration resonance throughout the 3.5 to 4.5 Hertz range caused failure of the front and rear shock mounting system and collapsedisintegration of the forward sheet metal suspension structure. Some damage was caused to the BL-755 item. It is concluded that the ACA-805 prototype does not meet established requirements and is not suitable for Air Force use. Author
