Abstract:

COMEX Computer model for design and Optimizing Magazines of EXplosive materials, was designed to examine resistance of magazines against blast and impact created by explosion of soil covered neighboring magazines. The input contains locations and structures of magazines, inhabited sites and roads. The effect of explosion is examined on the base of ESKIMO tests data and structure resistance of neighboring magazines. With safety considerations of magazines, roads and inhabited sites, the model computes maximum permissible mass of explosive TNT equivalent. The model can treat over a hundred magazines in a ranch, designing configurations of new ranches or maximizing permissible storage in existing ranches, possibly by emptying some of the magazines.
