Published February 01, 1968 by SAE International in United States
Annotation ability available
A versatile acceleration facility is described which accelerates and decelerates a sled or a modified automobile on its own wheels. The same propulsion and snubber systems are used for both the sled and the vehicle configurations with less than an hour required between runs.
Accelerations and decelerations up to 60 g, velocities up to 60 mph, onsets of 200-2000 g/sec, acceleration distances up to 10 ft and deceleration distances up to 6 ft are available with excellent reproducibility.
Extensive safety features for the operating personnel are provided.
