Abstract:

An experimental program dealing with the sensitivity to impact by regular fragments of certain cased explosives and propellants is discussed. The program is designed to aid in determining a more realistic quantity-distance relationship for the storage of ordnance explosive material. It is the intent of this project, through an experimental program, to establish a limiting fragment mass vs impact.
