Square Shock Tubes

Blast Generation

      At CIBM3, the flexible design of the different shock tubes allows generation of a wide range of blast loads by varying: 1) blast medium (helium, nitrogen, air), 2) changing the volume of the driver section, 3) changing the location of test section, 4) varying the overpressure magnitude by selecting different membrane thickness, and 5) altering the end plate configuration.
