Abstract:

Standard specifications for mounting the Hardened Aircraft Shelter Fire Protection System HAS-FPS are not sufficient because of the wartime threat to the facilities. Therefore, representative sections of the HAS-FPS, previously tested against actual fire threats, were installed in a full-scale HAS and tested against the blast threats. Data collected with accelerometers and strain gages on equipment were used with wall measurements to analyze the response of various mount concepts. Shock spectra and raw data were formulated into specifications that can be used in the performance specifications for HAS- FPS and other equipment of similar capacities and locations.
