Research of mine imitator interaction with nondeformable surface
AbstractThis paper presents experimental interaction re-search of the detonator’s cap of the mortar trainer’s mine imitator and nondeformable soil surfaces. For this purpose experimental research methods were developed, test rig created, and performed. The experimental testing during which the cap deformation was determined and interaction force dependences on cap deformations and stud deflec-tions at different interaction angles were obtained. Field test results of the deformations of detonator’s cap of the mine imitator at different firing angles are presented.
