Abstract:

An improved computer program was formulated to calculate the average blast impulse loads acting on a wall of a cubicle when an explosive charge is detonated within the cubicle. It was devised by the Ammunition Engineering Directorates Process Engineering Laboratory in connection with the Safety Design Criteria Program and it simplifies an earlier computer program used to calculate data points for the construction of impulse charts in Technical Manual 5-1300, Structures to Prevent the Effects of Accidental Explosion.
