Abstract


For studying response characteristics resulting from fragmentation warhead fragment impact on shielded H6 explosive. H6 explosive has been shielded with Q235 steel, what was impacted for cuboid tungsten fragments at the velocity range of 2000 m/s~2200 m/s launching from 25 mm ballistic gun, with different quality and length-thick ratio of square, The process of impact response was observed by high-speed photography. The maximum diameter and duration of the fireball as well as destruction of shielded H6 explosive were recorded, then corresponding features of shielded H6 explosive were analyzed accordingly. Furthermore, the mechanism of H6 explosive responses was analyzed based on the theory of explosive impact initiation. Results show that it mainly includes combustion, deflagration and detonation for response features of targets, and it has highest probability for deflagration. Adiabatic shear effect was regarded as the functional mechanism, which could produce different response characteristics. Deflagration reactions could be sparked in which of the situations the quality of fragments was no less than 10 g. what's more, the most violent deflagration reactions could be sparked under the certain condition that the length-thick ratio of fragment was about 1.6.
