Abstract


The purpose of this article is to develop a mathematical model describing the process of forming the initial kinematic parameters of the fragmentation field. Efforts to increase the effectiveness of ammunitions have been explored, namely increasing the area of damage, by using system for continuous initiation of the explosive substance. The results obtained can be used in the development of ammunitions designed for countering terrorist and other threats as components of critical infrastructure protection systems.

Keywords
