Abstract [en]

This report compiles the results of window explosion tests carried out as part of the METRO project by the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) and Mälardalens Högskola (MDH) in Shock Tube IV in Märsta, Sweden. 15 shots were made with varying distances between window and charge and varyingcharge weights.

The report describes the components and assembly of the tests and the results are presented in detail. It further questions the previous method of definingdanger zones, suggesting a new approach and gives ideas to improve further similar tests.
