Abstract:

An analysis was conducted by Naval Weapons Handling Center, WPNSTA Earle to determine isolation system parameters for a shipping and storage container to be used with the ASROC launched version of the HARPOON missile. A computer program package specifically written for container designers was used and is the main computational tool in the analysis. Two possible solutions to the isolation systems are presented. The primary difference between the solutions is that unlike Solution 1, Solution 2 uses offset isolators, thereby resulting in better placed longitudinal and vertical frequencies and lower sway space requirements. This report presents the details of the analysis and provides information concerning the predicted shock and vibration forces on the weapon caused by the hazards of transportation and handling.
