Abstract : The patent describes a pulse press testing apparatus in which a pressure vessel containing a propellant chamber is positioned adjacent to a force piston that acts upon a test specimen. Above the propellant chamber is a reaction piston which is movable into a back pressure chamber which contains one or more vents that can be adjusted to contour the shape of the pressure pulse. A pressure plate beneath the test specimen in the form of a rotary stepped incline plane applies torque for stress and strain tests and a concrete base is used as a seismic mass.
