Abstract : An improved method of producing a controlled fragmentation warhead case by embedding an expanded metal liner on the interior surface of a casing for a warhead or other ordnance device. The process of embedding an expanded metal liner into the casing during the forming of the casing produces a controlled fragmentation grid on the interior surface of the easing. The improved method of producing a controlled fragmentation warhead ease is particularly suitable for weapon systems employing large, unitary warheads.
