ASME published Code Case 2564 [1] in January 2008 on impulsively loaded vessels, which is currently the first design guidance of this kind worldwide. The authors participated in the Task Group on Impulsively Loaded Vessels reporting to Sec. VIII, Div. 3 [2] and were also intimately engaged in the development, design and operation of the DAVINCH® detonation chambers. DAVINCH® is an acronym for D etonation of A mmunition in a V acuum IN tegrated CH amber, utilized for destruction of old non-stockpile chemical weapons, which were recovered from underground and sea in several areas of Japan, China, and Belgium. The quantity destroyed to-date has reached as high as 7,000 munitions.
