Abstract:

The first part of the paper is directed towards investigating the distribution of casualty producing material from the dynamics of dispersion. Some of this information may prove useful in establishing theoretical upper bounds on the region of Lethality. The last part of the paper is concerned with an analytical model for flame distributions resulting from a bomb dispersed gell, and of a flamethrower as based on empirical data. This data will serve as a lower limit of desired effects since it is currently obtainable. A number of curves are included showing the area of the target covered as a function of the orientation of the strike relative to the target center.
