We have examined relativistic nuclei of iron, krypton, xenon, holmium and gold, accelerated to maximum rigidity at the LBL Bevalac, interacting with targets of aluminum, carbon and polyethylene. For each projc*:tile and target combination we determined the total and partial charge changing cross-sections. From these measurements we have developed a new representation of the dependence of the total charge changing cross-sections on beam and target charge. We have also identified simple representations of the variation of the partial cross-sections with the charge of the produced fragments and shown that they are dependent on the charge and energy of the beam.
