Abstract:

Presently, at-sea ship shock tests subject the vessel to high-pressure pulses created by detonating large explosive charges in the open ocean. The process is highly disturbing to the environment and subject to a variety of operational restrictions. Theresults are severe costs and scheduling constraints. Legal challenges due to increasing environmental concerns are driving costs upward and may potentially prevent the Navy from performing this vital testing. DYNAFLOW INC., teamed with APTI and AnteonCorporation proposes to leverage previous research efforts to develop a completely non-explosive technology that will enable `in-situ' shock testing in an enclosed facility such as a dry-dock or wet slip. This technology can also be applied to an openwater near shore environment through the use of appropriate pressure mitigation techniques. The concept,
