Poole, Christopher James (2001) Shrapnel motion. Masters thesis, University of Oxford.
When a bomb explodes, the bomb-casing breaks up causing shrapnel fragments to scatter off with high velocity. Whilst study on penetration of the designated target has been addressed, the mechanics involved in the motion of the shrapnel have not been examined in great detail. This dissertation will address shrapnel motion using ideas from gasdynamics. The motivation for this problem comes from QinetiQ who, among other things, play an active role in modelling violent mechanics.
