Abstract:

A systematic approach to planning underground ammunition storage based on an interaction matrix is presented. The interaction matrix is essentially a collection of the most important parameters with all possible interactions among them. Depending on the objectives of planning and design, several levels of the interaction matrix can be designed with the highest level having the least details, and the lowest level being complete with all relevant parameters included, which can be used for final planning and design. The advantages of the interaction matrix is that it gives you an overall picture at varying degrees of details. One parameter can not be changed without knowing its effects on the rest of the system. It also allows one to gather all relevant factors and mechanisms in a coherent structure. In this paper the basic structure of the interaction matrix is presented. Practical examples are then used to demonstrate the use of this system.
