Knowledge Based Performance Analysis Expert System for Fragmentation Ammunitions

Chao Wang, Chunlan Jiang, Liang Mao and Xinyi Cheng


In the fragmentation ammunition design and analysis process, difficulties to choose adequate calculation models are remarkable and affect the design efficiency. Recent development of Knowledge-Based Systems (KBS) has made widespread applications in different areas. However, few attempts have been made to apply KBS in the analysis of fragmentation ammunitions. In this study, the application rules of analysis models were studied and a performance analysis expert system was developed using Knowledge-Based Engineering (KBE) for fragmentation ammunitions. In the development of the prototype system, the hybrid knowledge representation techniques including rule system, objected-oriented system were applied and an inference and calculation mechanism with blackboard architecture was established. Visual C++ and relational database were employed to facilitate the prototype system. The system can be combined with a quick design platform and proved to be practical. It lays a foundation for further study on quick design system for fragmentation ammunitions.
