​Where do I find info on Explosive HAZARD / Chemical Sign requirement for outdoor open storage; size, visual placement  location, size, durability, same symbol upon approach and leaving (instead of 2 different HAZARD signs) and should they be reflective? I wasn't sure if 49 CFR 172.519 applies?

​Does any agency or organization have a method (forumula or algorythm) for computing storage space requirements in magazines?  I've asked depot systems and USADACs and never got a clear answer. Mostly what I have received was "there is no standard, everyone does it differently" but no examples.  Mostly what my team here does is compute the SQFT for a variety of dodics, and then divide available space by the SQFT reguirements, then tweak it for various known pallet size and cube - cross-checking againstt compatibility and type, and compare with drawings of like items  - very slow methodical, tedious, drawn out. . 

Does anyone have a formula (ie. Short Ton to CF) etc for Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) purposes.
