Abstract:

This paper describes the effects of appropriate shielding material with the aim to get a non-massdetonating reaction between 155 mm Artillery Shells on pallets and also between DRAGON-missiles packed in steel-containers on pallets. As shielding material millboard-tubes around the shells and foamed polyurethane around the DRAGON-warheads was chosen and gave efficient solutions. The results are described and documented.
