A method is developed for the prediction of the probability of missile impact upon a given structure or object and the maximum missile range from a cratering event. The data are from missile areal distribution studies made after several high explosive cratering events. Several empirical and theoretical scaling techniques are used to combine the missile areal distribution data into a form that allows the prediction of missile impact probability and maximum missile ranges as a function of charge yield, media, and depth of burial. This method of prediction is of direct interest in determining missile damage from typical explosive cratering events. Author
