RESUMO

Destruction of munitions including toxic substances by open detonation/open burning becomes more and more difficult due to increasing emphasis on environmental protection. The destruction in a robust chamber utilizing explosive energy is one of the most effective ways to destroy toxic and/or chemical munitions. This paper describes features of a detonation system named DAVINCH® (Detonation of Ammunition in Vacuum INtegrated CHamber), including the feature of chamber construction based on a new American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) design code 2564 on detonation chamber, feature of implosion, and its high destruction efficiency (DE) as well as environmental friendliness. The authors also propose effective and practical mobile systems named DAVINCHlite on land and DAVINCHfloat on the sea, which are on-site destruction systems where the munitions are found.
