Abstract:

Peak side-on blast overpressure and scaled positive impulse have been measured for M31A1E1 slotted stick propellant. The equivalency testing addressed the shipping container. High explosive equivalency values for each test series were obtained as a function of scaled distance by comparison to known pressure and impulse characteristics for TNT hemispherical surface bursts.
