Abstract
Warhead design calculations and weapons effectiveness estimates require a methodology to predict structural response and the associated damage to air targets from reactive munitions. The objectives for the proposed Phase I study effort are to develop candidate launch conditioning, reaction initiation and reaction rate methodology, to incorporate existing ballistic, blast and quasi-static pressure response and damage codes to complete a reactive munition methodology and computer model, to compare the reactive fragment model predictions with existing test results and simulations, to identify requirements for new model developments, and to develop a test and analysis plan for completing the development of the reactive munition methodology and computer model to be accomplished during the Phase II effort.
