Other articles where Hypervelocity impact is discussed: meteorite crater: The impact-cratering process: extreme speeds is called a hypervelocity impact. Although the resulting depression may bear some resemblance to the hole that results from throwing a pebble into a sandbox, the physical process that occurs is actually much closer to that of an atomic bomb explosion. Single-Stage (Cold) Gas Guns [Velocities up to km/s]. Solid Propellant (Powder) Guns [Velocities up to km/s]. Two-Stage Light Gas Guns [ Velocities up to 10 km/s]. Applications for research launchers. mm/38mm two-stage light gas gun with enclosed evacuated range tankage.   The impact of a single low‐density sphere on an aluminum target was analyzed with two‐dimensional finite difference wave propagation codes. The results of these analyses are compared with experimental measurements of the target back‐surface velocity history. An improved basis for establishing how closely a given equation‐of‐state and failure description represent the real material Cited by: 5.

The Slingatron is described as 'A railroad to space using a mechanical hypervelocity launcher.' Kickstarter If you read the endorsements from NASA scientists on Derek Tidman's book, his idea may.

A MPa pressure was applied to the interior rail faces, simulating the Lorentz force in the rails during launch. The deflection at the inside center of the rail was determined to be mm, which gives an equivalent spring constant of ×10 9 N/m node at the left end of the beam was given an initial vertical velocity and the beam was then allowed to vibrate by: launcher impedance and results in a lowering of the rail-to-rail voltage developed at each supply.

The reduction of the rail-to-rail voltage gives the UDESS the potential for achieving hypervelocity. Flagg RF () The application of implosion wave dynamics to a hypervelocity launcher.

The Hypervelocity Impact Society (HVIS) fosters the development and exchange of technical information in the discipline of hypervelocity impact phenomena by promoting technical excellence, encouraging peer review publications, and holding technical meetings on a periodic basis.

Recent years have witnessed an astonishing growth in research on materials science. Exotic new materials, innovative processing techniques and challenging computational methods make the pursuit of research in this field increasingly interesting and rewarding.

Considering as it does, the significance of shock-wave phenomena in the rapidly changing materials science scene, this collection of. Launcher Scaling The largest known hypersonic light gas gun was the Lawrence Livermore SHARP Gun in the early 's, which reached 3 km/s with a 5 kg projectile, for a kinetic energy of MJ.

The largest hypervelocity gun launcher was it's namesake predecessor, the High Altitude Research Project (HARP) in the 's. Abstract. The concept of using electromagnetic forces to launch projectiles to high-velocity has been pursued since the laws of electro-motion were first derived by Oersted and Ampere in the early ’ by: 3.

The concept of using electromagnetic forces to launch projectiles to high-velocity has been pursued since the laws of electro-motion were first derived by Oersted and Ampere in the early 's. During the l 's, there were a number of attempts to develop practical hypervelocity. the aerodynamics, aerothermodynamics and gas-dynamics associated with hypervelocity flight (such as incurred during atmospheric entry).

A broad range of model velocities are attainable with its arsenal of powder guns and light-gas guns. Data derived from observations of model.

Hypervelocity is very high velocity, approximately over 3, meters per second (6, mph, 11, km/h, 10, ft/s, or Mach ). In particular, hypervelocity is velocity so high that the strength of materials upon impact is very small compared to inertial stresses. Thus, metals and fluids behave alike under hypervelocity impact.

Extreme hypervelocity results in vaporization of the impactor. This is the homepage content being displayed in a new section on the homepage. You can edit this content from the Pages menu in the WordPress administration panel. You also have the ability to disable this content if you so wish.

American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite Reston, VA The research and development effort, called Hypervelocity Anti-Tank Missile (HATM), has a principal goal of testing technologies applicable to the U.S.

Army's Compact Kinetic Energy Missile (CKEM.

An interesting application is to use hypervelocity stars as test particles to map the Milky Way’s visible-matter and dark-matter distributions. The modern paradigm presumes that dark matter is made of weakly interacting massive particles that gravitationally clump together in the halos on the outskirts of individual galaxies (see Physics Cited by: 3.

During the optimization, the RSM (Response Surface Method) is adopted to find the operating parameters that could maximize the projectile speed. To construct a reliable response surface model, 3 full factorial method is used with the selected design variables, such as piston mass Cited by: 1.

Other articles where Implosion is discussed: atomic bomb: The properties and effects of atomic bombs: method used is that of implosion, in which a core of fissionable material is suddenly compressed into a smaller size and thus a greater density; because it is denser, the nuclei are more tightly packed and the chances of an emitted neutron’s striking a nucleus are increased.

Hypervelocity definition is - a high or relatively high velocity (such as thousands of feet or meters per second). Although hypervelocity impactors routinely hit spacecraft, the physics behind the formation of the plasma and the dynamics of its expansion that can cause electrical damage remain largely unknown.

The complexity of this phenomenon necessitates a research approach that includes both experimental studies and numerical simulation in order to. United States Patent Office announced today the issuance of Patent No.
