Abstract:

Experiments were performed with M26E1 propellant, multiperforated, 0.038 inch web size, in subscale and full-scale shipping drum, dryer, and blender configurations to determine the airblast pressure and positive impulse resulting from the detonating material. Variables considered included propellant weight, booster size, and configuration. Peak pressure and positive impulse were measured in the scaled distance range of approximately equal to 3 to 40 ft per lb to the one third power. TNT equivalency curves for both pressure and impulse were developed as a function of scaled range. Author
