Abstract:

We propose to develop an improved multi-purpose munition container with reduced hazard classification and ability to pass the fast cook-off test. The currently rielded container, when loaded with munitions and exposed to a large fuel fire, acts as a pressure vessel to contain the product gases evloved form the buring munitions inside, until it catastrophically ruptures, with a release of fragments and possible projection of munitions. Using special materials and design features, these containers will be modified to first thermally insulate the contained munitions from the fast cook-off environment; to vent the internal pressure of evolved gases or to fail in a controlled, non-fragmenting manner; and finally, to protect the contained munitions from fragments projected by nearby detonating munitions.
