About this product
- DescriptionIn this exploration of the mathematical equations and logic behind antiballistic missiles (ATBMs), the author examines theatre missile defence as well as warhead design and concepts for ATBMs. The book demonstrates the system aspects needed as a systems warhead engineer designing complex tactical and defence warheads under tight budgetary constraints. The text features an investigation of energy, momentum and methods for estimating damage on very complex ballistic missile payloads, such as submunitions of chemical and biological nature. Direct hit, missile debris and fragmentation are discussed. High strain rate, explosives, thermodynamics, heat transfer, chemistry, penetration mechanics, statistics, dynamics and finite element equations are also covered.
- Author BiographyRichard Lloyd is current manager of the Warhead Lethality Group of the Raytheon Company Electronic Systems Division. He has extensive hands-on experience with advanced state-of-the-art interceptor missules, having served as principal investigator on such noteworthy missile projects as the Patriot PAC-3 and, more recently, the SM-2 Block IVA/P31 Warhead. A practicing engineer with more than 15 years experience, Mr. Lloyd holds three patents on warhead concepts as well as a B.S. in mechanical engineering, and a B.S. in agriculture engineering with a mathematics minor from Washington State University.
