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: Ongoing

Four of the five shock tests at Hi-Test Laboratories have been completed. After completion of the final test in the next few weeks, the Navy will review the test results and make a decision on their use and applicability.

    Applications
  • All classes of ships.
