Chinese term or phrase: 链杆
In context of the warhead of a missile, this sentence shows up"...破片(或链杆)飞散平均速度。“ Could anyone tell what 链杆 refers to and how to translate it into English. Thanks much in advance.

Explanation:
Just guessing...

See ref. source:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuous-rod_warhead

A continuous-rod warhead is a specialized munition used as part of an anti-aircraft missile.

When detonated, the high explosive imparts a momentum to the rods, thrusting them outward in an expanding circle. The rods are sufficiently ductile to allow the expansion without breaking the welded joints, the rods instead bending at these locations. At some intermediate point the ring will have a zig-zag (alternating direction) appearance within a cylindrical envelope. Upon ultimate expansion the ring is circular and contained within a plane.

That describes the warheads, not the rods themselves, of course...
