Abstract
A REQUIREMENT EXISTS TO ACQUIRE ACCURATE AIRBLAST LOAD DATA AT DYNAMIC PRESSURES UP TO 10 KBAR FOR LONG DURATION. THE GAGE USED TO MAKE THESE MEASUREMENTS SHOULD EXHIBIT A LINEAR AND NONHYSTERETIC TRANSFER CURVE, HAVE ADEQUATE FREQUENCY RESPONSE TO MEASURE THE PARAMETER OF INTEREST, USE EXISTING SIGNAL CONDITIONING, SHOULD BE SMALL TO AID INSTALLATION IN STRUCTURES, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY BE EXTREMELY SURVIVABLE. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN AIRBLAST SENSOR THAT WILL MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS BASED ON LOAD CELL TECHNOLOGY. THE STRAIN GAGES WILL BE MOUNTED INSIDE THE LOAD CELL FOR INCREASED RELIABILITY. ADDITIONALLY THE SENSOR WILL BE COST EFFECTIVE TO PRODUCE AND RAW ELECTRICAL DATA WILL BE EASILY CONVERTED TO ENGINEERING UNIT PLOTS.
