Abstract:

A computer program has been developed and documented that generates the information necessary to establish minimum separation distances between various munition types and personnel in order to mitigate fragment hazards. This information includes the fragment density at any point from an accidental detonation and the probability of injury to personnel within the hazardous area. Computed results have been obtained for seven munitions and are presented in the form of contours of constant fragment density and damage probability in the horizontal plane surrounding the munition of interest.
