X2 Diaphragm Holder and Buffer Assembly, Drawing Number X2-DIA-000-0
This collection contains files which detail the design of the secondary diaphragm holder and buffer assembly used in the X2 expansion tube test facility. This electronic submission contains the 3D CAD files in Solid Edge and STEP file formats, and 2D drawings in Solid Edge and pdf file formats. All Solid Edge files are grouped together in one zipped folder due to interdepdendence of files (i.e. 2D .dft drawing files as well as 3D solid part and assembly files). For reference, development and testing with the new hardware is discussed in the following three documents: 1.) Gildfind, David E. (2012).
