Abstract/Summary An alternative to traditional momentum pendulum and pressure gauges is considered to resolve an improved temporal response to blast and fragmentation, with a protected gauge design. An alternative design based on the use of strain gauges is suggested. A gas gun fitted with a diverging nozzle has been used to validate a version of the system. Numerical analysis has been performed to explore and assess the accuracy of the experimental validation process and indicates an appropriate time range for the validation data. The test and simulation results demonstrate the potential of this device for measurement of blast and fragmentation effects.
