About: Explosion Danger Area Calculator

The equations for this calculation are as follows:

For fragmenting munitions when public access is possible to the demolition range area:
         Distance = 634(AUW)1/6

For fragmenting munitions when public access is denied to the demolition range area:
         Distance = 444(AUW)1/6

For bare exposed explosive only:
         Distance = 130(AUW)1/3

Explosion Danger Area Calculator

This calculator can be used to estimate range danger areas when planning the destruction of ammunition by open detonation.  It may be used for 'quick planning' on demolition ranges with existing danger areas. If used on demolition areas with no formal danger areas the user should remember that the distance produced by these equations is that distance outside which no more than one fragment would be expected to fly. They are NOT absolutely safe.

The All Up Weight (AUW) is the total weight of the munition, or munitions, including packaging and palletisation.
