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 paper updates progress to date on MSIAC’s generation of a consolidated guide to energetic material parameters needed for typical insensitive munitions (IM) modelling and simulation efforts. An explanation of tests and experiments to determine the parameters will also be included.
This document compiles work among MSIAC and NATO member nations over the last 20 years in the field of munition cook-off simulation. We have collected representative publications, papers, presentations, and other information on the topic, provide a cursory analysis of the breadth of efforts
In the interest of providing immediate information resulting from Phase II of this Workshop, NIMIC has prepared Volume III of the IM Testing Workshop Report, covering Bullet Impact, Fragment Impact, Shaped Charge Jet Impact, Spall Impact as well as some considerations on Spigot
During the last 5 years NIMIC has organised a series of Workshops for its nations on IM threat stimuli. These workshops have covered Bullet/Fragment Impact, Cookoff (Slow and Fast), Sympathetic Reaction and Shaped Charge Jet Impingement.
In 1997 NIMIC held a Workshop on IM Testing the aim of which was "to write guidance on full-scale IM testing in order to improve confidence in and achieve international acceptability and broader applicability of test results".
