Abstract : The objectives of the work discussed in this paper were to: (1) determine bare explosive charge sizes and shapes which may be used to simulate blast and shock effects of cased munitions against buried structures, and (2) to expand the current weapons effects data base for cratering, ground shock, and soil stresses produced by munitions.
