SENSITIVITY OF CASED EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS TO IMPACT BY REGULAR FRAGMENTS
LITTLE (ARTHUR D) INC CAMBRIDGE MA
The program is designed to aid in determining a more realistic quantity distance relationship for the storage of ordnance explosive material. It is the intent of this project, through an experimental program, to establish a limiting fragment mass vs impact velocity relatationship for the detonation of certain explosives andor propellants enclosed in cartridge cases of different thicknesses. Tests, Test methods, Velocity, Projectile cases, Storage, Propellants, Detonation, Thickness, Calibration, Tables, SENSITIVITY, Impact shock, Fragmentation. This report discusses the firing of 0.2 oz fragments for velocity calibration and assessment of fragment damage. Receiver charge detonability tests were also fired. No detonations were recorded.
