Burst Disk Grenade (Multi-Directional)

Unread postAuthor: Davidvaini » Wed Sep 17, 2008 11:35 pm

So I was thinking about the main problem with burst disk grenades which is they only shoot in one direction (uni-directional).

So I think I may have figured out a way to get a uni-directional burst of air to convert to multi-directional burst.

Image

The button pushes the cap and nail down over the 3/4 pipe.

Between the 3/4 pipe and 3/4 coupling is where the burst disk is located.

The 2" tube will hold the ammo (flour) and the holes will be located in a way that the flour would not come out with free movement.

When the device is thrown it lands and the nail punctures the burst disk which releases the air out and pushes the cap up.

The cap wont fly out because the hole for the button is too small to let the cap fly out. (kind of like a piston)

Since the cap flys up the air gets redirected around into the 2" tube.


Now I realize I forgot to add 2" caps to the 2" pipe.. Caps will be on both ends. A hole for the push button will be located through the top cap.

So hopefully you guys understand my idea.

do you have any insights as to how this will work? also how are you expecting to load the flour in the first place? maybe make the bottom cap friction fit on?

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

Shoots in one direction = uni-directional
Shoots in all directions = omni-directional

uni = one or single
omni = many or all

Maybe you could use paper to act as a burst disk for the flower.
Just glue up the outside and roll it onto a piece of paper.

You could use toilet paper couldn't you? It's far weaker too.
