Abstract:

This handbook embraces the areas to be considered in the design of pyrotechnic ammunition with emphasis on the engineering aspects of the terminal effects. Associated topics to be considered during the design--such as light, sound, heat, ignition, and ballistic considerations--are covered briefly with the expectation that the reader will use pertinent references in this and the related handbook series for detailed information. Consideration is given not only to design with respect to performance but also to producibility, reliability, maintainability, cost, safety, and human factors.
