Abstract : This work presents a computational study of blast venting from a cubicle, for a charge, detonated at the center of the cubicle. The study is carried out using the PISCES 2DELK code employing modern, second order accurate, flow calculations. The computational model has provisions for varying the charge weight, the venting area, and the frangible panel mass. The results of the calculations are presented in the form of wall impulse and average pressure time-histories. Comparison with previous work is included.
