Abstract : For the purpose of obtaining structural loading data in connection with Program 3 of Operation UPSHOT-KNOTHOLE, Project 3.28.1 was given the responsibility of measuring transient physical phenomena associated with the blast loading of specially designed structures and a variety of test items. On Shots 9 and 10, a total of 892 channels of instrumentation were provided to secure information on air pressure, earth pressure, structural strain, displacement, acceleration, panel-time-of-break and angular velocity.
