Description: Contract report
Foreword: This manual was prepared by the General American Research Division of the General American Transportation Corporation for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Waterways Experimental Station, Vicksburg, Mississippi, under Contract No. DACA 39-68-C-0047. The manual culminates a 12 month program to design, fabricate, install, and make operational a 1500 psi Dynamic Load Simulator. The program was performed during the period 1 May 1968 to 10 October 1969. The manual contains the theory behind, and operation of, the 1500 psi Dynamic Load Simulator and is divided into four sections. The first section is a general description of the system and lists its specifications. The second section covers the theory of thermochemical and detonation wave analysis. The third section describes the operating procedure. The last section provides guidance for maintaining and trouble-shooting the system. The overall management of the program was the responsibility of Dr. M. J. Balcerzak, Associate Manager of Engineering. The Project Engineer was R. J. Klima. Appreciation is extended to the following personnel who contributed to this program: L. E. Fugelso, R. S. Koike, S. A. Stohl, and F. E. Wolosewick. Appreciation is also extended to Messrs. W. Flathau, J. Ballard and J. Hossley of the Waterways Experimental Station for the cooperation and assistance given to General American Research Division during the performance of this program.
