Abstract:

The Stamp Strap Program requires that Live All-Up round Configuration MK-82 Bombs be shipped by aircraft for rapid deployment. There is, however, concern that the vibration caused by the aircraft on the MK-82 bombs with fins may have an effect on the safety of personnel and aircraft. Vibration tests were conducted on palletized inert MK-82 bombs with fins IAW a modified Method 5020.1 vibration test of Federal Test Method Standard No. 101. Although the vibrations developed during aircraft shipments may not be as severe as those developed during the tests, there is concern whether damage could occur to the propellant, igniter, squib, fuze or if preignition could occur in shipment.
