Development of Compact Blast Containment Vessel for 10 kg Explosive

Abstract:

Article Preview

The development study of blast containment vessels for anti-terrorism has been conducted. The goal of this study is to develop safe disposal vessel for 10 kg of explosives. Considering of the use at the airport or railroad stations, it needs to be more compact compared with the conventional explosion chamber. By introducing both the internal structure and attenuation technology in the vessel, sufficient blast proof ability to contain internal explosion is realized. The blast containment vessel can be used repeatedly by exchanging the internal structure. To realize these concepts, model experiments were carried out using high speed photography, strain and pressure measurements. By introducing these technologies, the vessel for the 1 kg of explosive materials has been made, and the experiments employing 1 kg C4 explosive have been conducted. Finally, the compact blast containment vessel for 10 kg explosives was made, and its blast proof ability was shown by the internal blast test.
