Abstract : This report presents the results of a study designed to determine the blast loading on above ground munition storage magazines. The magazines are located at a separation distance of K2 (2W1/3), where W is the maximum allowable weight in pounds mass, and have barricades between each structure. Responding and non-responding 1/23.5 scaled structural models were designed for the tests. Blast loading with and without the donor magazine over the charge was documented.
