Abstract:

An experimental design has been developed to be used to determine the shielding thickness required between rounds stored in a storage area to prevent round-to-round propagation from an initial explosion. Extreme value quantal response techniques were used with shielding thickness as the stimulus variable. The development design drastically reduces the sample size required for a given probability and confidence when compared with known distribution-free extreme value designs.
