Abstract:

A comprehensive view is taken of the physical models required to estimate volumes and heights of blast-initiated debris. Particular emphasis and development is directed toward three areas the fragmentation of frangible elements, the failure of elements with limited ductility, and the transport of debris particles by blast winds. Computer programs to handle the computations involved in these three models have been written.
