  • L-253 Instrumentation Techniques BLAST

    June 2020

    Blast effects are part of the performance characteristics of explosive materials, usually in comparison with reference explosives like TNT. Especially for sub-detonative events, blast effects are hardly predictable without complex numerical simulations.

  • L-215 A Review Of International Hazard Classification

    April 2020

    MSIAC maintains a Hazard Classification (HC) database for Ammunition and Explosives (AE) with 16 contributing nations. Governmental personnel from MSIAC member nations are able to access the data through the MSIAC secure website.

  • L-257 Life Cycle Cost Method And Examples For Munition Health Monitoring

    March 2020

    Within the NATO context, a cost benefit analysis (CBA) is a valuable support tool for economic analysis for defence programs. A major part of any CBA is a sound life cycle cost analysis of all options.

  • L-255 Instrumentation Techniques Velocity of Detonation

    February 2020

    Detonation properties are part of the performance requirements for any explosive material. They include the density, the detonation pressure and the velocity of detonation (VoD).

  • O-215 A Better Use of IM-HC Test Results

    September 2019

    During the 2018 MSIAC Improved Explosives and Munitions Risk Management (IEMRM) workshop, it was recognized by the community that low violence reaction types such as a burn on one side, and high violence reactions such as detonations on the other side, are relatively well understood.
