Abstract : This document is the Final Technical Report for PETTT Special Project BY09-005SP, Blast Fragmentation Modeling and Analysis. Explosively driven fragmentation of ductile materials has long been a subject of great interest in both the design of munitions and armaments and the importance of reducing the vulnerability and enhancing the lethality of armor systems and personnel, Gurney, 1943; Taylor,1963. The objective of this research is to develop a methodology to quantify and characterize near-field fragmentation from a multi-mode weapons device containing a multiphase blast explosive (MBX).
