Additive manufacturing (also referred to as AM) offers many opportunities in the munitions design space to tailor bulk properties, such as spatially-variant composition, density, etc., with intent to subsequently affect macro behaviour through changes in stress/stra
Over the past 20 years, the community of technical practitioners in munitions safety, quality assurance, life cycle assessment, and life extension throughout NATO have worked to accumulate and disseminate the Alliance’s knowledge on these topics, to facilitate exchange, gr
The Munitions Safety Information Analysis Center (MSIAC) is preparing a report that collects the most common age-induced degradation mechanisms, as they pertain to the most common materials applied to munition systems.
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
This report documents MSIAC’s generation of a consolidated guide to energetic material parameters needed for typical IM modeling and simulation efforts. An explanation of tests and experiments to determine the parameters will also be included.
