Abstract:

Enhancing the fragmentation capability of current and future projectiles is critical to meeting the armies Future Combat Systems, FCS, requirements. In order to meet these requirements, enhancements to the fragmentation capabilities of these future weapons is needed. Only through the use of the latest modeling tools can these goals be achieved. The U.S. Army Armament Research and Development Center, ARDEC, has continued its efforts to develop its modeling capabilities further to generate these optimized warheads.
