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
In April 2016 MSIAC held the Science of Cookoff (SoCO) workshop in Atlanta. This was a five day workshop aimed at discussing the complex problem of cookoff. The objectives for the meeting were to improve the understanding of cookoff of energetic materials and their systems.
Knowing the critical diameter of an energetic material is important, as it can provide information about its sensitivity and performance, as well as what tests should be used for characterization. However, finding this value quickly and precisely can be complicated.
