A stack consisting of CR-39(DOP) detector with 2.6 cm Al target was exposed to a238U beam of energy 0.927 GeV/n from LBL BEVALAC to study the large-fragmentation phenomena during U+Al interaction. The diameter distribution of the etch pits formed in the plastic detectors for the first three projectile fragments of chargeZF≥89 yields the partial cross-section data which is comparable to the data obtained from the cone length distribution. The present result on the partial cross-section is significantly higher than those expected from the abrasion-ablation model of Wilson, Townsed and Badavi (1987).
