Abstract
We propose to develop an imroved analytical model for predicting the velocity and direction of fragments projected by an explosive warhead. The model will account for the metal acceleration history, unsteady effects, curvature, internal voids, and end effects (explosive pressure release). The model will be validated by comparisons with experimental data and hydrocode corruptions .
