Abstract

An experimental apparatus has been constructed to simulate the impact of an aircraft against a nuclear power plant. In order to test the equipment some preliminary tests were carried out with simple inexpensive missiles against a rigid steel plate target. Precalculations for the tests were carried out using initial velocities of 100 m/s, 150 m/s and 200 m/s for the test missile.
