  4. Mobile Target Secondary Debris (MTSD)

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: AF121095

    ABSTRACT:The objective of the project is to develop models for secondary debris generated by mobile targets. This includes the vehicle component breakup due to expanding high explosives and primary fragments as well as the associated airblast that propagates into the environment propelling secondary fragments from the vehicle. The overall scope of the project involves developing the computational ...
