A new pipe is being created in Russia to simulate powerful atomic explosions

28

The head of the 12th central research institute of the main military department of the Russian Federation Vladimir Chipko spoke about the creation of an object for simulating atomic explosions with a capacity of several megatons.


Such a statement, Vladimir Chipko made for the program "Military Acceptance", which goes on the channel "Star".

According to the head of the 12th Central Research Institute of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, we are talking about a special joint pipe. They plan to equip it with explosive and pyrotechnic generators. With the help of the first, a powerful shock wave will be created, with the help of the second - light radiation.

A feature of the new test tube is precisely the calculation of the power of an atomic explosion. Modern objects of this kind are designed to simulate the explosions of atomic warheads with a capacity of several kilotons. Now, power is actually growing a thousand times.

Some data of the new test tube also became known. Its length is about 450 m with a diameter of 12 m.

Pipes of this kind make it possible to evaluate the effect of an atomic explosion of a certain power on equipment, manpower, buildings and structures. Analysis of this data allows you to create reliable security systems and regulate the security concept itself.

      And there is yes

      There is at least one such object of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, but on a smaller scale:



      The video demonstrates how the energy of a blast wave is modeled, corresponding to the power of an explosion of a nuclear charge (ammunition).

      Well, back in the early 70's, guys from my department went to KopYar "to the pipe" to test our products. With its own instrumentation, tools, alcohol "for wiping contacts". Tellingly, all this was later written off under the article "radioactively contaminated". Although oscillographs, welding machines and other tools were safely deposited with the guys in the garages ...

        No, well, we really did wipe the contacts too. But most of all, we spent alcohol on the preparation of alcohol canin. Oh, how much we "dissolved" it! Yes, there was a time.

      Good news!

      Interestingly, but in this pipe can you simulate a prototype of a nuclear engine? For space?

        There, one can rather model not a nuclear engine, but its irreparable failure.

    Any weapon requires verification, testing close to the real conditions of use. Tests of vigorous ammunition are not conducted ... you have to look for other ways.

        Not the ammunition itself, of course, there are other methods, theoretical. But this is a close topic.

      Nuclear tests are conducted solely for the purpose of improving the nuclear weapons themselves. All military equipment, in order to counter the damaging factors of a nuclear explosion, is tested separately. Why there is a special research institute. But to build a stand, with the ability to simulate a megaton shock wave, is cool.

        Let alone, but next.
        They seek to test everything theoretical in practice, if possible.

      Yes, even if they were carried out, you won’t get enough of the testing of the whole range of vigorous loaf equipment.

    So they remembered about megaton ammunition ... I do not believe that it is just like that, "smoke without fire" ... Has the danger increased? Will Democrats in the United States, having come to power, begin to "democratize" the world? Warheads in the hundreds of kilotons ... They will become.

    In light of the gradual withdrawal of the United States from all agreements with nuclear weapons with our country, it is necessary to modernize our nuclear weapons ... a good thing ... nowadays the US Department of State cannot be sober up without a nuclear baton ... they began to forget that they are as mortal as we .

    I always knew that the Russians would come up with something .. hi

    Find a middle ground for nuclear missiles and more ..
    Look at the peasants, they snapped and silence .. Everything also functions and works .. But there are NO centers!

    I wonder what is the range of the shock wave from the pipe? Kilometer? Two? How will the territory be organized along which the wave will go? And then a few megatons - this is really scary

      The action of the shock wave is studied directly in the pipe.

        If you believe the "Military Acceptance", then not in the pipe. I watched this program. And the pipe is an open structure. The blast wave comes out of there

          At the exit from the cylindrical part, it diffracts (diverges) and loses its power. We need to look at the diagram, in fact this is an explosive chamber of this type.

            Wow! Are you concerned at least with some kind of study of physics? Congratulations.
            Only these pipes are not built by un-degenerate degenerates. And the dispersion of the wave is taken into account, as it is strictly calculated at what distance from the pipe cut the equipment is placed.

              There is a book by Ya.B. Zeldovich, "Shock Waves". I recommend.

    If only signs were placed on Novaya Zemlya: "Do not approach! Dangerous! Testing of 50 megaton ammunition is underway."

      I confirm the aforesaid, and the earthquake is not small. In the early 70s in the Northern Urals there was an attempt to implement a project to reverse the northern rivers, in the framework of which an underground atomic explosion was carried out, on the site of which a lake was formed, now called Nuclear. At that time I lived 35 km. from the place of the explosion and I remember well how the ground under my feet staggered and bulbs began to swing. Before this, everyone was recommended to seal the windows with paper strips crosswise so that the windows would not fly out. It is good that the project was canceled and did not begin to be completed, otherwise radioactive northern water along the Kolva-Kama-Volga rivers would reach the Caspian.

    I heard that almost all manufacturers of high-quality weapons have similar pipes. In the United States, Britain, Sweden, France, China recently increased, Israel.

    (black fighters for racial justice in Europe have already scattered through the cracks after watching the news that we will finish building the Nord Stream with such a pipe in response to American machinations).
