This report discusses the measurement techniques and procedures used by BRL to obtain the loading and response data from structural designs of several agencies on Operation Sun Beam. Project objectives were 1 to provide supporting instrumentation for pressure versus time, acceleration versus time, displacement versus time, stress versus time, and deflection versus time measurements for structures projects and 2 to obtain data on air blast or ground shock required to properly analyze the results of the structures projects. The instrumentation used to obtain data in support of the requesting agencies was adequate to accomplish the objective. Modifications to the instrumentation procedure to gain improved results are desired.
