Abstract:

Two identical tests were performed on half scale P-2 model earth penetrators to define strains and accelerations imparted during high velocity impact, 1800 fts, into a sandstone media. Tests were conducted in the reverse ballistic mode by firing the sandstone at the P-2 test models. Extensive strain and acceleration data was recorded during the successful performance of these tests. Both P-2 models were reviewed after testing and all test objectives were achieved. A brief description of the test facility, instrumentation and procedures is presented.
