This report describes the work performed to predict dynamic response and stress limits for quartz tubes for the NASP prototype facility. The specific objective was to evaluate the responses of several flat plate, curved plate, and tube configurations when subjected to a given level of overall sound pressure level. The RMS stress values were obtained at several locations and the maximum value for each case is reported in this report. The objective of this study was to identify concepts with the RMS stress response that does not exceed the recommended design tensile stress level. Three concepts were investigated the flat plate, curved plate and cylindrical tube. The flat plate concept results in a high level of response. Several curved plates met the design criteria.
