Missile Battery Damage Prediction Methodology
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Warhead design calculations and weapons effectiveness estimates require a methodology to predict the terminal ballistic structural response and the associated functional damage to operating missile batteries subjected to warhead fragment impacts at speeds up to 16,000 ft/sec. The objectives for the proposed Phase I study effort are to develop a candidate structural representation for the missile batteries of interest, to select an appropriate baseline fragment penetration and target response model, to identify requirements for new model developments, and to develop a test and analysis plan for completing development of objective missile battery damage prediction methodology to be accomplished during the Phase II effort.
