Abstract:

Shipboard combat systems must be designed to withstand moderate to severe excitation induced by underwater explosion. Current specifications for combat systems shock qualifications are mandated in MIL-S-901D. Analyzing the differences and relationships between the predicted shock excitation, as derived from previous ship shock trials, and that shock excitation which is produced by the U.S. Navy Medium-weight Shock Machine required by MIL-S-901D, a proposed modification to the existing shock test procedure is presented which will better represent the shock phenomena experienced by combat systems exposed to underwater explosion. U.S. Navy medium-weight shock machine, Tuned mounting fixtures.
