Design and analysis of fragmenting warheads
SPLIT-X is an expert system for the design and assessment of fragmenting warheads. Natural or controlled fragmentation of an explosive filled casing can be studied with SPLIT-X. In contrast to complex finite element codes, SPLIT-X is based on analytical procedures and engineering approximations which are calibrated by experimental results. Therefore, the tool requires relatively little computing time and provides the results within a split second.
SPLIT-X can be used for various applications in defense engineering:
Design and optimization of fragmenting warheads
Arena test layout
Calculation of input data for vulnerability models
Design of structural elements to protect vehicles or buildings
SPLIT-X applies several unique algorithms and models:
3D Gurney-Method for the calculation of fragment velocities
Models of multiple and/or asymmetric initiation
Mass and shape calculation of natural fragments
Optimization based on design constraints and performance requirements
Material library (explosives, casing materials, etc., user expandable)
