Abstract
THE OBJECTIVES OF PHASE 1 ARE TO ACQUIRE AND ASSEMBLE DATA ON MUNITION SENSITIVITY TO SYMPATHETIC DETONATION, DEVELOP DISCRETE ELEMENT CODES FOR LOADING AND REACTION OF EXPLOSIVES, EVALUATE THE PREDICTIVE UTILITY OF THESE CODES TO PREDICT SYMPATHETIC DETONATION OF MUNITIONS, AND TO PLAN THE PHASE 2 PROGRAM OF TESTING AND COMPUTER MODEL IMPROVEMENT. THE GENERAL APPROACH TO PHASE 1 IS TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF DISCRETE ELEMENT CODES TO PREDICT MUNITION SENSITIVITY BY FIRST ASSEMBLING SYMPATHETIC DETONATION DATA FROM THE NAVY, ARMY AND AIR FORCE AND THEN EXERCISING THE EXISTING AND NEWLY DEVELOPED (IN PHASE 1) CODES AGAINST THESE DATA. THE RESULTS WILL BE AN EVALUATION OF THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OF PREDICTION OF EFFECTIVENESS, A COMPENDIUM OF EXPLOSIVE AND MUNITION SENSITIVITY DATA, AND A PHASE 2 PLAN TO PROCURE MORE DATA AND IMPROVE PREDICTIVE CODES.
