Abstract : hi exp rim ntal program deals with the ensitivity of certain c sed explosives an propellants o impact by regular fragments. It is designed to aid in determining a more realistic quantity-di tance relationship for the torage of ordnanc e plosive mat rial. The intent of this project is to establish a limiting fragment ass vs impact veloci y relations ip for t e detonation of certain explosives a d/or propellants enclosed in casings of different thicknesses. The initial calibration tests, the first test firings into receiver charges, and a preliminary evaluation of results are discussed. (Author)
