Lethality Criteria for Debris Generated from Accidental Explosions.

Abstract The present criteria for the lethality of debris is based on work by conducted in the early part of the last century. The criteria for converting this lethality into separation distances for explosives storage is somewhat less clear but appears to be based on a conditional probability of lethality of around 1%. Investigations have indicated that the actual probability is considerably less than this level. This paper compares the criteria for establishing Inhabited Building Distances for the various Hazard Divisions and the different inherent explosion effects and recommends new criteria for use with HD 1.1 debris and details what effect this would have on the current QD tables.
