a. Interstack -the minimum distance between the closest edges of adjacent stacks. This is designed
to prevent propagation of detonation from blast pressures.
b. Inter-FSU -the distance between the nearest edge of the nearest stacks in adjacent FSUs. This
distance is designed to prevent the spread of fire.
c. Intercategory -the minimum safety distance between FSUs of different field storage categories.
Figure 6. Field storage distances
5. Optimum safety distance: The optimum safety distance is the limit inside of which, physical or
structural damage from blast or missiles will be serious. These distances should be considered when
locating ammunition facilities near:
a. Fuel dumps and other storage facilities.
e. Inhabited areas.
Fill in the answer to each question.
1. What is the storage location for ammunition stored in Section 2, FSU B, Stack 1? (Figure 5).
2. What is the storage location for ammunition stored in Section 3, FSU C, Stack 2? (Figure 5).
3. What is quantity-distance?
