Abstract:

A method for modeling the thermal behavior of a warhead section adaption kit in an accidental fire environment has been described in detail. A Control Data Corporation Model 6600 computer operating under SCOPE version 3.4.2 and utilizing the dynamic simulator called CSSL 3 is used. The model permits study of the temperature versus time of a few points within a three-dimensional system. The effects of radiation, conduction and convection are included, as well as changes in heat paths due to melting of some parts. Author
