Punch Valve Development Testing
Low and High Velocity Test Results

This is a report on the use of quasi-static tests to predict fundamental parameters for
punch valve development. This report summarizes the results from low and high velocity
tests performed with .63 and .38 centimeter diameter plungers, 5 centimeters long,
penetrating aluminum and composite targets. The low velocity tests, .025 meters per
second, were performed to understand the effects and interactions of plunger diameter,
plunger tip shape, target material, and target support on penetration energy and plunger
functionality. High velocity tests, 75 meters per second, were compared to low velocity
Here’s what’s next.
