Does the volume of the vessel have an effect on the blanket?
For hydraulic applications volume is not typically a factor unless the volume is very large at a high pressure which is uncommon. For Pneumatic applications volume is a significant factor because in the event of a failure, a pressure wave can precede the projectile and may pre stress the blanket, lowering its capability to contain the projectile. Because a pressure wave impacts a large area of the blanket, its energy absorbing capability can be decreased. A pressure wave can be a greater stress on the system than the projectile itself. Our engineering practices and resources allow us to effectively design for large volume pneumatic applications.
