VIBRACON

Vibracon Shock Tests

 

Problem: Huge amounts of maintenance resources are required to mount shipboard equipment accurately. Vibracon adjustable chocks have been used in NATO Navies for many years. They have not been shock qualified for use in the U.S. Navy. 

Solution: Subject the Vibracon chock to several representative, high stress shock applications. Results from these tests could be extrapolated to other sizes and weight ranges.

Benefits

Estimated Navy Cost Avoidance:

Minimum annual:            $3,150 K

Minimum 15 Year:        $47,250 K

 

Fleet Impact: These cost avoidances are based only on pumps and compressors. Nearly all auxiliary equipment would ultimately be users. Jet Blast Deflectors and catapult trough covers are immediate uses on aircraft carriers. Ultimate potential is extensive.

Status: Pending

 

Upon award of contract to NSWC/Philadelphia, a minimum of two pumps and a compressor will be barge-shock tested using Vibracon chocks as the leveling and hold-down devices. These applications were chosen in order to permit extension of shock approval to other systems of equivalent weight and moment.

 

Applications:

All classes of ships.
