National Instruments Case Study: Using NI LabVIEW and NI PXI to Measure Field Blasts

Version 2

    "Because of the integration of LabVIEW and the NI PXI-8110 quad-core controller, we efficiently captured millions of synchronized data points."

    - Mohammed Alias Yusof, National Defense University Malaysia



    The Challenge:

    Designing a field blast measurement system to test the response of concrete panels subjected to explosive loading.

    The Solution:

    Using strain gages, pressure sensors, accelerometers, shockwave probes, NI LabVIEW software, and PXI hardware to record the load data from explosive tests conducted on a concrete structure, and to directly display those measurements. NI
