The methodology and analysis used to characterize the performance of a sabot/rod as it is subjected to lateral and axial loading during launch is presented. The methodology described incorporates the experimental and numerical portions of the evaluation. Three separate sabot/rod designs are evaluated for their performance in the launch tube and are compared with one another. The experimental portion of the research involved full-scale testing of two separate sabot/rod designs in a 120-mm launch tube that was slightly bent. When launched through the bent tube, the sabot/rod system was forced to negotiate lateral displacements at axial velocities of approximately 5400 fps. This combination of axial velocity and lateral displacement produced significant lateral loading on the sabot/rod system. A 2.3-MeV x-ray unit was used to determine the lateral displacement that occurred as the sabot/rod was forced through the bent tube. After the sabot/rod exited the launch tube, the sabot separation and rod straightness were recorded by four 150-keV x-ray units. The in-bore radiography experiments used x-ray shielding techniques to reduce x-ray scatter, and layered indexed film and intensifier screens to record the sabot/rod image. The processed film was computer scanned with a microdensitometer and was remapped on the computer to enhance the x-ray image. Results indicated rod lateral displacement accuracy to 0.007 in. Test results were used to benchmark the numerical analyses used to characterize the in-bore performance of each sabot/rod system studied. The numerical portion of the research involved three-dimensional modeling of the sabot/rod systems in three launch-tube environments: a perfectly straight launch tube, an existing accuracy tube, and the slightly bent tube used in the experimental program. Because of the good agreement between the experimental and numerical models, stress, strain, and displacement time histories were obtained from the numerical work and used to evaluate each of the three sabot/rod systems in three launch environments. A dynamic analysis was performed for each of nine separate models. Sliding surfaces, nonlinear constitutive relations, and multiple materials were used for each analysis. Results from both the experimental and numerical analyses are presented.

The purpose of this study was to determine kinetic and kinematic characteristics of Thai Boxing Roundhouse Kicks. In order to measure the kinetic variables of peak force and impulse, a triaxial accelerometer was inserted into a kicking bag. The force data were derived from the known mass and measured acceleration of the kicking bag. Validation testing comparing applied forces to estimated forces based on accelerometers output showed this instrument provided accurate estimates of the force applied to the kicking bag (r=.99). The MacReflex motion analysis system was utilized with three cameras operating at 120 frames per second to obtain the kinematic characteristics of final linear velocity of the kicking ankle, linear velocity of the kicking ankle and knee, angular velocity of the knee, and the angular velocity of the shank and thigh projected onto the horizontal plane. The subjects were ten male Thai Boxing performers with 8 to 48 months of training experience. The kicking trials were conducted at three height levels. It was hypothesized that the peak force, impulse, and the final linear velocity of the kicking ankle at impact would be greater for the lower level of kicks as compared to the higher level of kicks. It was also hypothesized that peak force and impulse would be positively related the subjects' leg strength. For the relationship between kinetic variables and kinematic variables it was hypothesized that peak force and impulse would be positively related to the final linear velocity of the kicking ankle. In comparing the roundhouse kick at different height levels the middle level kick generated the greatest peak force and impulse, while the high level kick involved the least force and impulse. The amount of peak force and impulse were directly related to the final velocity of the ankle (r=.86, and r=.79 respectively), but they were not significantly related to the leg strength. This study found that the Thai Boxing roundhouse kick can easily generate enough force to cause neurological impairment, skull fractures, facial bone fractures, and rib fractures. These results suggest that there is a greater need for regulations protecting the competitors in Thai Boxing. / Graduation date: 1997
