Abstract : In this report the high explosive DATB is evaluated for use in a nondestructive pulsed high pressure gas system. A test configuration is described which permits measurement of acceleration and velocity of a free piston driven at various pressures generated by detonating small DATB charges. Test results are described and applicability to the LINUS-O system is considered. (Author)
