Defects in energetic materials or in other materials used in munitions systems are often a cause for concern. This includes voids, cracks, and foreign materials, as well as chemical, physical and or mechanical properties that are outside design tolerance specifications.
This document summarizes output from the Applicability of Hazard Division Assignment to Storage Focus Area breakout session of the MSIAC Improved Explosives and Munitions Risk Management workshop held in Granada, 10th to 14th September 2018.
This document provides a review of techniques used for compatibility testing of energetic materials. The methods that these techniques employ and how they relate to the chemistry involved are discussed.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) started to develop in the early 80’s with many different processes being invented simultaneously. Of these only a few processing techniques have been adapted for the manufacture of Energetic Materials (EM).
