Abstract:

This proposed fragment hazard evaluation will develop a meaningful code for small explosive quantities in the range of interest to DOE operations with very probable spillover to DoD operations in the same range of explosive quantities. It will provide a uniform solution to fragment hazard mitigation. The economic application of DoD 6055.9 criteria is of paramount importance. New facilities can be designed to meet the current DoD criteria however, the upgrading of existing facilities to meet the current DoD criteria is not practically nor economically feasible. Therefore, it is proposed to develop a design criteria to supersede andor supplement DoD 6055.9 criteria for smaller quantities of explosives.
