Abstract:

This report contains the results from a series of high explosive tests designed to determine the blast loading from 150th scaled models of the type planned for exposure on operation ESKIMO VI. A 1.27 kg charge was used to simulate 158760 kg in a full size storage magazine. Blast loading on structures located to the front, side, and rear of a donor magazine are presented. Correlation with other model studies and full scale tests were made and predictions for the blast loading to be expected on the ESKIMO VI one-half scale structures are made.
