Innovative Approaches to Shock Events

Tue, Jul 3, 2012

Over the years, MGA’s team has developed new ways to simulate the high amplitude shock events that are present in various applications. These approaches have been the result of MGA’s strong collaboration between our laboratory personnel and our equipment team. The approach implemented is to draw upon the technologies that have been developed at MGA in the areas of new sled designs, pyroshock devices, dynamic impactors, and large-scale drop towers.  In many cases, these approaches have been combined to produce the desired acceleration shock pulses.  A few recent examples include the following:

  • Battery Shock Testing
  • Horizontal Blast Simulation
  • Pyroshock
  • Curb Impact
