This report provides supporting data and references for the 50 mm critical diameter engineering “rule-of-thumb” applicable to passing the shaped charge jet impact (SCJI) Insensitive Munitions (IM) threat test defined in AOP-4526. If a munition subject to this test contai
In great many cases the properties of energetic materials have not been obtained by measurement. Therefore they have to be estimated by mixing rules for the technical literature, which are often not validated and it is often unknown which mixing rule works best.
Following many discussions and multiple iterations over two years, MSIAC has produced a largely self-consistent taxonomy and lexicon of terms related to defects in energetic materials and munition systems, based on the paradigm of materials science and engineering.
