Abstract: This paper presents a description of the various test devices of the Blast Load Generator Facility and their capabilities. The Large Blast Load Generator is capable of testing models of underground protective structures at pressure up to 500 psi dynamically and 1000 psi statically. The Small Blast Load Generator can be used to test small models at static pressures up to 2000 psi and dynamic pressures up to 250 psi. Higher static and dynamic pressures can be obtained using the 15,000-psi static loader and 1500-psi detonable-gas shock tube, respectively, For determination of the static and dynamic properties of materials, the 200- and 500-kip loaders are available
