Abstract : Tests were conducted to determine the ability of 24 internal grooves 1/16 wide and 1/8 deep in the AAP rocket motor to produce rod-like fragments. The inert motor was assembled to a Composition C-3 loaded and fuzed AAP rod- producing war head. The data indicated the internal grooves to be of no significance in controlling fragment size. The poor performance was attributed to the fuze booster location.
