Dual Mechanical Environment Simulations on Liquid Reserve Batteries


Article Preview

Dual mechanical environment simulators are usually used to supply recoil force and centrifugal force for simulation of liquid reserve batteries during artillery projection. When the vehicle with fuze batteries impacts the wooden block rotating with high speed, whether the transient impact parameters and the time required for the vehicle reaching the rated revolution are in accordance with the test conditions of fuze batteries is one of the key technologies. Finite element simulations are implemented for the transient vehicle impact process, the variation of vehicle acceleration under different projection velocities, the variations of vehicle acceleration and impulse duration with different wooden block thicknesses, and the time required to achieve stable rotational speed are discussed in this paper, which can be a reference for the simulator design.
