Abstract:

This paper compares the predictions of the latest Institute of Makers of Explosives Safety Analysis for Risk IMESAFR model versus physical test data recovered from ISO-1 and ISO-2 tests in Woomera, SA. ISO-1 testing included placing 1054 kg 2324 lbs of ANFO ammonium nitrate-fuel oil inside an ISO container on a flat bed truck. ISO-2 testing was identical except the NEW was 4000 kg 8818 lbs. The IMESAFR predictions are based on model runs using the best match available to the actual donor type involved in the test. This type of debris analysis is not the standard output of IMESAFR, as the program is designed to assess the probability of human fatality. However, all of the IMESAFR predictions presented were obtained from the use of the actual model equations and algorithms without adjustment. Test results from ISO-1 and ISO-2 will be presented as well as findings from the comparison between model results and actual explosive results from the ISO testing efforts.
