Abstract:

This study examined the economic consequences of treating wooden ammunition boxes with a preservative to prevent rapid deterioration in tropical climates. The study was basically an expected-value analysis presented in terms of cost-indifferent storage duration with life expectancy of the treated and untreated boxes as parameters. The results indicated that it would not be reasonable to store ammunition in untreated boxes.
