Gas Gun

BISRU has a light gas gun that is used in various research projects, such as ballistic penetration and as a launching device for Taylor test specimens. In the case of a Taylor test a sabot system is used to launch a 5 g copper specimen at over 200 m/s. The gas gun is also used to launch striker bars that set up the required stress waves in split Hopkinson bar systems.
