Description

Testing activities today at LLNL occur at three different locations: Livermore, Site 300, and the Nevada Test Site. At the Livermore location, there are three gas guns, two of which are used primarily for materials studies and scientific experiments on materials. The third gun is located in the High Explosive Applications Facility (HEAF) and fires into a chamber rated for 10 kg of explosive containment. The HEAF gun is used primarily for impact studies on explosives. Also within HEAF are five other containment chambers for explosive testing. Each is instrumented to varying degrees to supply the necessary information of explosive ... continued below

The HEAF gun is used primarily for impact studies on explosives. Also within HEAF are five other containment chambers for explosive testing. Each is instrumented to varying degrees to supply the necessary information of explosive behavior. These include high speed optics, Fabry Perot velocimetry and radiography. The descriptions of the three gas guns and a summary of the HEAF facility are presented in the accompanying figures.
