MSIAC Science of Cook-Off Workshop 2016

MSIAC are in the process of planning the next workshop to be held in April/May 2016. The location will be the East Coast of the USA, further details will be released soon.

The overall objective of the workshop will be to update nations knowledge and understanding of cook-off by focusing on how the role of the heating rate and surrounding conditions effects determining reaction violence. It will be achieved by understanding chemical and physical changes that lead to critical ignition and growth, reaction phenomenology and linking this, via scaled testing, to system level tests.

The secondary objective will be to advance methodologies in predicting response mechanisms including modelling and updates to AOP-39 protocols.
