Abstract:

Titanium response under a nuclear encounter environment was modeled and incorporated into a computer program. Predictions were compared with experimental results under simulated laboratory environments. Excellent agreements were obtained for all test cases. While no evidence of sustained combustion was observed for the missile shroud under potential flight environments, it was demonstrated that titanium failed catastrophically under certain simulated conditions.
