Abstract:

The Naval Surface Weapons Center NSWC has a continuing task from the Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board DDESB to establish methods for predicting the fragment hazards due to the inadvertant explosion of ordnance items. As part of this task, NSWC has established a computer model which predicts fragment hazards. The computer model calculates individual trajectories for each fragment recovered in small-scale fragment arena tests.
