A description of an impact tester, of the basic ABMA design, and the test procedure used with the tester is presented. Results of impact sensitivity tests performed with the tester are also presented. These results indicate that the impact sensitivity of two different materials is increased significantly when the sample thickness is decreased from 0.040 to 0.020 inch. Also, the repeatability of the test is shown to be within 3 in. (5 ft-lb) based upon the threshold values obtained for one fluid sample.
