Abstract
THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RELIES ON SENSING THE RELATIVE DISPLACEMENT BETWEEN AN INERTIAL MASS, SUSPENDED IN A VISCOUS FLUID, AND ITS RIGID CASE. MUTUAL INDUCTANCE ELECTRICAL SENSING METHOD IS PROPOSED WITH THE AC CIRCUITRY ASSOCIATED WITH THE GAGE SO THAT THE GAGE OUTPUT WILL BE A DC SIGNAL.
