Abstract:

A need potentially exists for overpack containers for 115mm M55 Rockets. A single round overpack system has been designed and a series of tests were conducted, ultilizing M61 Rockets, to determine effect of the overpack on the previously-established Maximum Credible Event MCE for palletized M55 Rockets and to provide data for storage hazard classification of rockets stored in the overpack containers. This paper presents results of those tests.
