Abstract:

The relation between the shock wave pressure on the propeller hub and the size of the detcord charge was determined experimentally by a series of shots conducted on a full-scale test platform. The shock-induced response of the shaft was measured directly with strain gages and accelerometers. Additionally, the experimental shock wave pressure data provided the basis for numerical prediction of the response profile of the shaft.
