US Navy conducted a mine test of the USS "Jackson" warship

57
In the United States, the USS "Jackson" coastal stability ship was tested, which was handed over to the customer in August 2015. According to the portal DefenseNews a few tens of meters from the ship, an explosive device with a capacity of about 4-4,5 t (10 thousand pounds) was activated. Reportedly, the ship received minimal damage after the explosion.


US Navy conducted a mine test of the USS "Jackson" warship


During the tests on the coastal zone warship, 260 of various sensors were fixed, which were supposed to monitor the Jackson reaction to charge detonation. The sensors measured the temperature, the force of the shock wave, the roll of the ship, the degree of deformation of certain sections of the skin and other parameters.

From the statement of the official representative of the US Navy:
The ship passed these tests exceptionally well. He survived the explosion, receiving minimal damage. At the same time, he returned to the port on his own.


After testing, the American ship actually went to Mayport (Florida), where experts will analyze data from all sensors, conduct a visual inspection of USS Jackson, on the basis of which they will draw conclusions and present a report to the US Navy Command.

The test takers stated that the result was better than expected. At the same time in the Florida seismic service they reported that an earthquake of magnitude higher than 3 points was recorded in the test area. It is checked whether the earthquake was caused by the explosion of an explosive device during tests of the USS "Jackson" or not. Experts are inclined to the version that it was the testing of the US Navy that led to the emergence of seismic shocks.

The US Navy announced that similar tests of another new coastal ship, the USS Milwaukee (Milwaukee), will be conducted next week.

      On the one hand, yes, but what valuable information is that you need a larger charge or closer.

        - Exactly! I don’t remember something that rockets or torpedoes exploded far away. Usually the explosion of their warhead occurs already inside the ship's hull. So such distant explosions are the usual show off for taxpayers.

          What does the show have to do with it? eggheads are simply trying to figure out how much pelvis they have left after our retaliatory strike. otherwise there is simply nothing to explain such a mass of explosives. here is another interesting, the alleged damage suits them or not?

        Yes, apparently 4,0 tons of explosives per 1,0 kb from the side will not be enough!
        But the ama are slyly silent about "minimal damage". Surely the bottom shut-off equipment received "hydrocontusion", and the AP AP had to conduct BZZh at the TG combat posts.
        I hope our KR and MO will be more accurate: let them calculate the consequences of a 10-15m explosion from the side !!!

          Explosion at what depth? Generally (information) is scarce and what about? The basin didn’t drown. Then, with all the data, the same battleship of the Second World War or the battleship of the 1st world war didn’t even notice what was overboard. Or they want to say that this basin so strong that don’t attack? Maybe there are frames through 150mm. are the thickness of the side like the armored belt of a battleship? request EXPLOD under it and surprise us!

          Vibration resistance is best checked in a storm. And about PR ... When poachers suppress fish, do they PR too, or do they check their boats for vibration resistance? smile The fact is that the USS Jackson case is built according to an unconventional scheme and its strength characteristics are not completely clear.

    But do mines really explode so far from the ship? Maybe the question sounded stupid and unprofessional, but I'm really not up to date.
    In my opinion, if such a mine explodes in the midsection - the consequences will be much sadder. And are there mines in service that are activated when the ship passes and come closer to it? And yet - are mine fields still being used?
    Pros - enlighten on this subject!

        Magnetic mines are sabotage weapons of combat swimmers. And what you are writing about - mines with a "magnetic" fuse. These are the ones that are triggered when the MF threshold is exceeded in the fuse duty channel. The most destructive is the explosion at a distance of 8-10 m from the NK side.

          As a joke, I recalled a domestic children's cartoon of the 70s (the name flew out of my head). The pioneers, having gone down in the bathyscaphe, found a fascist destroyer at the bottom, and from there an angry, toothy ... magnetic torpedo rushed at them. Wow, and she drove them! But in the end I ended up at a scrap metal collection point. For an 8-10 year old boy, it was still action! Damn, I can't remember, I have to look.

          These are those that operate when the threshold of the MP is exceeded in the standby channel of the fuse. The most destructive is the explosion at a distance of 8-10m from the side of the NK.

          But since then, all warships have been equipped with a demagnetization system. As for the destructive explosions, the news has now surfaced infa that the Americans could not drown their old decommissioned frigate for half a day, starting with a single "Harpoon" and ending with bombing with a B-52 and torpedo attacks. Maybe in this case, something went wrong with them, and now they are just trying to excuse themselves with a smart look? smile

        Well, actually ... have long been there.
        Reactive pop-up mines. They stand, stand at a depth, waiting for a vessel to match the passage number. How it falls into the radius of action and corresponds to the multiplicity - ascent (reactive) and broads.
        Mino torpedoes. Such units are at a depth, for installation as mines, in action - torpedoes. Again, the target falls into the view of the action - well, the result ... the torpedo went to the target (exactly like in the cartoon).
        ...
        Mines with horns that are so fond of showing in films are such a rarity.

    Interestingly, we have ships in a similar way?
    Under the keel, they already blew up when they tested a torpedo, of course the ship broke in half and sank, no one would do such stupidity with the acting ship.
    It seems to be tested for the effect of a blast wave over the hull. It is quite reasonable, like on this boat a completely sealed hull for counteracting WMDs, if it loses its tightness from the effects of a shock wave, does it make sense to fence a garden? I would check.

      There is an idea (a non-professional in this matter) that compensating devices like couplings have been invented for sure, taking into account the discrepancy in the alignment of the axes of the engine output shaft and the propeller shaft. Yes, and the engine on ships (ships), in any way, "exposed" is not the same as on land. Probably on compensating pillows, which also dampen the acoustic field .. With the corresponding requirements for rolling and impact.

        No, Basil, it is not true.
        You forgot about pitching, there are storms at sea, you know.
        And, much worse than storms, swell.
        Sometimes even a "dead swell". Symbolic, right.
        So, there are no shock absorbers and pillows there. It is impossible to consider, calculate, so many unforeseen factors.
        Everything is done ironically. A bunch of balancers. A bunch of dampers.
        Like lead weights on rims.
        And the highest quality workmanship of spinning parts.
        Why did the Toshiba company suffer in due time, selling to the Union precision machine tools for shaft turning for submarines.

        The acoustic field is formed just from beats. And if there is no beating?
        And no "grandfather" will bring the mechanism to such a point that its bearing "buzzed".

    Hmm, just in the news, about how the Americans for half a day "could not drown" a decommissioned 83rd year ship. They fired rockets, planes were involved, even torpedoed him, and he, like, doesn't sink, that's all. I immediately thought that there should already be an article on VO, but no. Probably they just write it. And I even guess who ...

    Who does not want to spoil the impression before the news appears on VO, that, of course, let him not go and do not read further.

    Here is the news, July 20, 2016 published:

    Py Sy. Why in quotes - "could not drown", it is doubtful that drowning the target should have been the goal of these shooting. On the contrary, it is usually useful to study the damage. Unless, of course, there were plans to create an artificial reef.
    Strictly IMHO.

    usually a torpedo detonation occurs in front of the ship below the waterline ... and a water hammer breaks through the skin and partitions to a state of instability.
