Degraded states vulnerability analysis by John M Abell( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1988, the Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL) and the Army Material Systems Analysis Activity (AMSAA) began a joint program to develop improved metrics for use in vulnerability assessments, especially of ground combat vehicles. Traditional tank vulnerability metrics have made use of a mapping procedure called damage assessment lists (DALs). A DAL maps killed components and sets of components into degradation of combat utility DCU). It has been known for a number of years that the use of DALs in the process of developing vulnerability measures of effectiveness is conceptually and mathematically problematic. Recent DAL work led to renewed focus on the problems associated with DAls, and to a proposal for their yields the probabilities that a tank is in one or more degraded states

An integrated environment for army, navy and air force target description support by Paul H Deitz( Book )

2 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than 40 years the vulnerability community has been developing analytic methods to predict the potential damage to targets from threats likely to be encountered in hostile engagements. Early methods of analysis consisted of manual calculations for bullet/target interactions. To perform a vulnerability analysis 1) a target description had to be generated. This file represented the three-space definition of geometry and coupled material information. 2) Mathematical rays, simulating bullet trajectories, were then passed through the target descriptions in order to find points-of-intersection, surface normals, line-of-sight thicknesses, and materials. 3) All of the information from step 2) was then passed to a vulnerability analysis were penetration relations and component-damage criteria were applied to calculate average system-level damage.

IBGRAF : display of XNOVAKTC interior ballistic computations by Ronald D Anderson( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A menu-driven computer program, called IBGRAF, has been developed to display output from the XNOVAKTC one-dimensional interior ballistic code. The data is viewed in graphical form on a multi-windowed color screen. Graphs and drawings may be shown in a static mode, or may be animated on a frame-by-frame basic in which each frame corresponds to designated interior ballistic times during the computation. The user chooses the physical parameters to be displayed from a menu of data types extracted from the interior ballistic calculations

Free radicals : bibliography and survey of publications, up to 1959 by George Israel Lavin( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey was made of the free radical literature published up to and including the year 1959. Approximately 2200 references are presented in the form of the title of the paper, author, and a brief description of the work where the title is not self-explanatory. (Author)

High-resolution, item-level weapons modeling by Paul H Deitz( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern item-level weapons analyses call for a computer environment which supports both geometric modeling and a substantial suite of predictive codes. The paper reviews the generation and interrogation of solid geometric models as well as a diverse set of performance-related applications codes. Examples of geometric modeling of armored fighting vehicles are given; in addition, various structural analysis are illustrated. Such modeling and analytical methods are critical for 1) evaluating the benefits and burdens of design options, 2) supplying necessary Measures-of-Performance for battlefield modeling, and 3) supporting and complementing the field testing of weapons systems. Keywords: Geometric modeling, Weapons modeling, Vulnerability analysis, Performance measures, Item-level analysis
Railroad tank car fire test : Test no. 7 by U.S. Army Ballistic Research Laboratory( Book )

Preliminary report on medium studies by B Perkins( Book )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Operation Hardtack, thirty instruments were installed for the Tamalpais Shot to measure the (free field) ground shock parameters of the seismic wave resulting from a contained nuclear explosion in tuff material of a weapon having a total energy yield equivalent to 0.057 kt of TNT. About half the records were lost due to an oscillator power supply failure, caused by the malfunctioning of the battery charger following the final dry run. The following measurements were recorded at Tamalpais and are reproduced: Five stress time histories were measured from 100 to 410 feet from the explosion. Two displacement time histories were recorded at 300 feet from the detonation. Four displacement time histories were recorded at distances greater than 10,000 feet from the explosion
