The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  3. Stochastic Consideration of Cased Munitions for Casing Breakup and Airblast

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: DTRA102003

    OBJECTIVE: To develop an analytic method to predict fragment characterization and the resulting airblast propagation from the detonation of a cased explosive. Current procedures are heuristic, based on empirical analysis of test data and simplified analytic expressions. While these work satisfactorily for traditional munitions that detonate in conditions similar to the testing arenas, there is co ...
