Abstract:

The report presents a broad treatment of fragment-blast damage starting with the mechanisms of failure and then presenting methodology for computing damage from fragment-blast weapons. Calculations are based on an assumed mode of failure after fragment damage takes place. An example problem is given assuming a buckling type failure for both wing and fuselage. The report also presents failure calculations for cylindrical shells and compares the results obtained for collapse with those for collapse hinge buckling and lobar buckling.
