Abstract:

An experimental and theoretical investigation of the mechanisms of fragmentation has been conducted for explosive-filled cylinders of Armco iron and HF-1 steel. Dynamic fracture nucleation and growth parameters for HF-1 steel were determined from gas gun experiments for use in computer modeling of the fracture and fragmentation processes. Calculated fragment mass distributions are compared with experimental results.
