Abstract:

Computer programmed methodology has been formulated which may be used to estimate minimum separation distances for the storage of five different quantities of stored explosives with respect to minimizing damage to ten specific types of civilian targets. These procedures have been based on the results of more recent analytical and experimental blast damage assessment programs in which structures or structural elements subject to blast could be related to the civilian targets of interest through similar structural elements and construction techniques. Analytical techniques have been programmed which will develop a minimum separation distance, for a selected target and quantity of explosives, which minimizes the probable risk that the blast damage resulting from an accidental detonation will exceed a predetermined acceptable level. A discussion of the program and operating instructions are presented in this manual. Author
