Paper Abstract

Currently available methods and systems for testing components for survival and performance under shock loading suffer from several shortcomings for use to simulate high-G acceleration events with relatively long duration. Such events include most munitions firing and target impact, vehicular accidents, drops from relatively high heights, air drops, impact between machine components, and other similar events. In this paper, a new class of shock testing machines are presented that can be used to subject components to be tested to high-G acceleration pulses of prescribed amplitudes and relatively long durations. The machines provide for highly repeatable testing of components. The components are mounted on an open platform for ease of instrumentation and video recording of their dynamic behavior during shock loading tests.
