Abstract:

Tests were conducted to determine if propagation could be prevented between stacks of MK 82 500 pound and MK 84 2000 pound bombs in storage. The effects of four variables were explored orientation of the bombs, fuze well protection, distance between stacks of bombs, and placing material between stacks of bombs. A total of 19 tests have been conducted and conclusively prove that propagation between stacks of bombs in storage can be prevented.
