Abstract:

Use the theoretical knowledge of shock attenuation and advance with experimental evidence to the point where the results can be used in practical scenario. Our first objective is to characterize the material with respect to shock attenuation from a blast load. This achieved by the design and development of a test rig that can be used to evaluate analyze and eventually understand the parameters in a material that influence shock attenuation with verification of the existing theory.
