Abstract : "The damage analysis of two targets due to submunition-type missile warheads has been studied. The paper discusses (a) damage to a battlefield (comprising army personnel, tanks, armoured personnel carriers and soft-skinned vehicles) due to bomblet-type warhead and (b) the denial of an airfield comprising runway tracks inclined to each other due to blast-cum-earth shock (BCES) type of warheads. Simulation technique has been used in both the cases. In addition, a mathematical model has been discussed in the second case to compare the results of the simulation model. For comparison, A particular methodology for checking the denial criterion called conventional methodology has been used Later, a new methodology has been incorporated for checking the denial criterion in the simulation model. A mathematical formulation of the new methodology has also been given."
