Calculational techniques for predicting warhead performance based upon the fragment velocity distribution are presented and compared with experimental data. A simple technique is shown to be inadequate for many practical configurations. For accurate distributions, a two-dimensional, time- dependent, finite-difference code is shown to be adequate. As an integral part of this code, a model for the effects of casing fragmentation and explosive gas leakage has been included. Author
