Abstract:

An investigation of fragment hazards from multiple munitions in open stores is described. The objectives of the study were to estimate fragment hazards as a function of type and quantity of munitions, and configurations of the store. To this end an analytic stack model has been developed from insight gained on a series of small- and full-scale tests. A series of tests were run utilizing M117 750-lb bombs in order to verify the analytic stack model. Another set of verification tests were run with 155mm shells.
