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).
This document summarizes output from the Thermal Effects Focus Area breakout session of the MSIAC Improved Explosives and Munitions Risk Management workshop held in Granada, 10th to 14th September 2018.
The Munitions Safety Information and Analysis Center (MSIAC) has developed a number of safety related computational tools, including NEWGATES (New Excel Worksheets on GAp TESts)  which is a large data base and computational tool for gap test data.
As part of energetic material qualification, this paper will review recent discussions with respect to the required parameters for modeling energetic materials, the methodology required in acquiring these parameters, the current processes that demand experimentation, and what is still needed to b
