Abstract

Tests used to simulate the separation of the lower stage of the Ariane Vehicle Equipment Bay (VEB) were carried out on a flat full scale model. Theoretical studies carried out prior to testing are described. Three different mathematical methods, finite element, component element, and wave propagation, were used. Comparison of the predicted theoretical results with the actual test results is planned.
