Ce document contient le compte-rendu de l'atelier NIMIC 1993 sur la sensibilité des matériaux énergétiques fracturés ou granulaires, tenu à l'US Army Edgewood Conference Center, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD (Etats-Unis) du 19 au 21 juillet 1993.

Designers, programme managers and users of weapon systems need to be constantly aware of the hazards which may result from munitions exposed to stimuli that may occur during their service life as the result of accidental or aggressive threats. These threats include:
This document is the first product of a programme to collate data on the physical and chemical properties of new explosive ingredients that is normally dispersed throughout many papers, journals and laboratory notebooks.

This document discusses the need for the rational characterisation of the new energetic materials that have been developed in recent years, and it proposes a coordinated collaboration program whereby the properties of these materials can be collated and assessed.
In this paper, the term "ballistic impac" applies to impact and further penetration of bullets, fragments (from warhead casings) and shaped charge jets. The corresponding threat on munitions has been studied for a number of years by various methods, from mere empirical tests t
