  • L-202 Critical Diameter Correlations

    September 2016

    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.

  • O-149 Superior Infrared Flare Compositions based on Magnesium Diboride (MgB2) and Dimagnesium Silicide (Mg2Si)/Polytetrafluoroethylene/ Viton™ Infrared Decoy Flares

    August 2012

    The mechanical threats Fragment Impact (FI), Shaped Charge Jet (SCJ) and Explosively Formed Projectile (EFP) are recognized to be really severe because they can lead to a shock to detonation transition of the energetic materials, which is difficult to manage and difficult to mitigate.  Conse
