Abstract: 155 mm projectiles are detonated in a test arena with steel momentum plates of 30×50×2cm3 with 23.55 kg weight, positioned 1.25m above the ground where their achieved velocities are measured by the displacement distance on the ground. Although the impulse density results show a large scatter, they can be roughly described as exponential equations of the scaled displacements.
