Abstract : The patent describes a high impact shock machine for imparting shock of a controlled and reproducible magnitude to test specimens. Equipment to be tested is mounted either vertically or horizontally on a table which rolls on a track with some clear travel. A free-travel link permits the table to reach its peak velocity before buffers are engaged to slow the table with a constant deceleration.
