Traditionally countermeasure flares have been manufactured from a mixture of Magnesium, Teflon® and Viton® (MTV). Unrivalled in their high temperature output, they have protected aircraft for almost 50 years.
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
