Detonation transfer : summary report, FFI project 803.03
MetadataShow full item record
In connection with the upgrade of AMRISK, a program for risk analysis of ammunition storages, the process of detonation transfer have been studied. Based on earlier work a model for sympathetic detonation is developed and implemented. To validate the model experiments have been carried out. The agreement between the model and the experimental results is not very good. A better initiation model will probably improve the accordance. Models for detonation propagation in a stack of ammunition and between stacks have also been developed. Based on these models and a reliable model for sympathetic detonation the amount of ammunition that contributes to a mass detonation may be estimated.
