Description

The Gun Dynamics Laboratory is a research multi-task facility, which includes two firing bays, a high bay area and a second floor laboratory space. The high bay area is used for the investigation of structural dynamic response of heavy weapons and weapon components to launch excitation. The room is 80 feet x 40 feet with a high load density floor. Instrumentation includes 12 channels of digital data capture and display in 3 synchronized Nicolet oscilloscopes with 4,000 points per channel. There is also a data acquisition system with 10 channels at 256,000 points per channel. The photo shows an instrumented experimental 6Omm tube being prepared for firing, to evaluate its dynamic response.
