This low cost shock tube has a square cross section (2.5 inches x 2.5 inches) and can be used in either open or close ended modes. It has been primarily used for instrumentation response evaluations to transient loads and shock wave dynamics.
-2 feet long 140 psia driver section,
-multiple layer burst diaphragm,
-12 feet driven section is composed of two 6 feet sections.
Separate driven sections allow for the ability to fill one section with different fluid, such as water to enable water immersion transducer response.
A typical response from a high speed transducer in water and subjected to a transient shock wave.
