Abstract:

This special report describes an experimental method for determining the effect of radial distance from an explosive charge on the net size reduction of solid particles in a spherical CW bomblet. Data showing the effect of positaon in bomblet, size of bomblet, agent-to-explosive mass ratio ad shock amplification on final breakup are presented. Methods for chemical analysis of both the inorganic and organic materials used as agents simulants and tracers are presented.
