Abstract:

Static fragmentation tests were made to investigate the fragmentation characteristics of a double wall cylindrical warhead as compared to a single wall cylindrical warhead of the same overall dimensions. The purpose of these tests was to obtain a quantitative estimate of the difference in fragment mass, numbers, velocity and spatial distribution between a double and a single wall cylindrical warhead.
