Blast data Blast data DPM (Aeronautics) (OP) 22 Nov 02 06:55 Looking for aerogel data under blast condtions (high shock pulse). Anyone aware of any tests or data that indicate that aerogels may provide good attenuation or mitigation of blast effects? RE: Blast data IRstuff (Aerospace) 22 Nov 02 14:17 Isn't that a contradictory use?I though aerogels were rather "leaky" by their very nature and therefore, it would seem that even a moderately thick layer of aerogel would not do much to slow down a pressure wave.TTFN RE: Blast data DPM (Aeronautics) (OP) 22 Nov 02 20:29 Actually, there is limited data that suggests that they perform well in this application. Looking for more information. RE: Blast data Glenndo (Military) 26 Jul 03 12:27 Talk to Mario Saba at Aspen Aerogels. He may help you.
