- Perley Pitkin's personal fireworks. Vara, Jon // Yankee;July97, Vol. 61 Issue 7, p36
Presents information on the discovery of a number of Civil War cannon shells at the bottom of Number 10 Pond in Calais, Vermont. Why the police and United States Army were called in; Details on another batch of shells discovered in the pond in June 1996; Speculation on who put the shells in the...
- Research keeps bombs exploding on target. // Electronic Design;2/19/96, Vol. 44 Issue 4, p25
Reports that researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico are using high-speed photographs of a shock wave from a penetrating projectile in a block of high explosives to understand how explosives inside a weapon might react when projectiles penetrate the weapon. Equipment...
- Dynamical and collisional approaches to the transport of core and Rydberg projectile states in solids. Vernhet, D.; Rozet, J-P.; Lamour, E.; Gervais, B.; Dube�, L. J. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2000, Vol. 500 Issue 1, p666
Experimental studies of the production and transport of projectile excited states in solid carbon targets have been performed for Ar[sup 17+] and Kr[sup 35+] at high velocity (respectively v[sub p]=23 and 35.6 a.u.). A range of target thickness from single collision condition to equilibrium has...
- Slow ions scattering on C[sub 60]: The electronic response of the C[sub 60] molecule and its ions. Cederquist, H.; Fardi, A.; Haghighat, K.; Langereis, A.; Schmidt, H. T.; Schwartz, S. H.; Levin, J.; Sellin, I. A.; Lebius, H.; Huber, B.; Larsson, M. O.; Hvelplund, P. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2000, Vol. 500 Issue 1, p616
In this progress report we discuss the electronic response of the C[sub 60] molecule and its positive ions by means of comparisons between experimental results and two different models for the charge mobility in C[sub 60]. We have measured projectile angular differential cross sections, ds/d?,...
- Onager Catapult. // Popular Mechanics;Aug2012, Vol. 189 Issue 8, p98
The article offers step-by-step instructions for making catapult frame for the projectile-hurling model of the ancient Roman weapon.
- Projectile Acceleration Aiming at Velocities above 9 km/s by a Compact Gas Gun. Moritoh, Tatsumi; Kawai, Nobuaki; Nakamura, Kazutaka G.; Kondo, Ken-ichi // AIP Conference Proceedings;2002, Vol. 620 Issue 1, p1204
Optimization conditions were studied for the conventional two-stage light-gas gun, which is a part of a three-stage light-gas gun having a preheating and filling stage. A firing test achieved a velocity of 6.2 km/s using helium as driver gas with a projectile weighing 0.6 gram. In the case of...
- Life's a blast. Deans, Alan // Bulletin with Newsweek;12/18/2001, Vol. 119 Issue 6306, p19
Features the projectile found on the landscape of South Australia. Notice given to the residents about the rocket; Origin of the place from a brick structure covered in red earth; Use of motorbikes in mustering the plains.
- Small Arms... THE DANGERS OF CCMCK! Parr, Mark // PS: Preventive Maintenance Monthly;Feb2016, Issue 759, p36
A comic strip about the hazards associated with stuck close combat mission capability kit (CCMCK) projectiles is presented.
- A Levallois point embedded in the vertebra of a wild ass (Equus africanus): hafting, projectiles... Boeda, Eric; Geneste, J. M. // Antiquity;Jun99, Vol. 73 Issue 280, p394
Provides information on the discovery of a fragment of broken Levallois point embedded in the vertebra of a wild ass. Analysis of the lithic point fragment; Hafting and projectile point hypothesis; Conclusion.
