Abstract:

Three tests of 110 scale specially reinforced concrete test bay were performed to evaluate the explosive capacity of a specific cubicle arrangement and as a first step in establishing the validity of scaled testing of concrete structures. The tests consisted of firing 2.00, 3.24 and 4.25-lb. charges of Composition B in the center of the test bay and evaluating the extent of damage to the bay to estimate its ultimate explosive capacity.
