Abstract

Improvised explosive devices as well as conventional ammunition, such as grenades, mortars, bombshells, rockets and missiles generate both a blast wave and the projection of multiple fragments at high velocity when detonated Develop a controllable laboratory scale technique to generate repeatable combined
loading conditions and experimentally and numerically analyze the response of
plates.

The synergistic effect created by the combination of both loadings on the impacted materials and structures can be greater than the sum of the effects of each loading separately.

A laboratory-scale technique to generate a repeatable combined blast and fragment impact loading is proposed and evaluated. The technique is based on the use of one spherical steel projectile, attached to a given quantity of plastic
explosive The detonation of the explosive charge generates a blast wave and propels the projectiles towards the plate.
