  • O-206 TNT and Blast Equivalency Characterization of Energetic Materials

    July 2019

    When dealing with energetic materials, TNT Equivalency is commonly used for different purposes. For scientific purposes, it is a means to compare the explosive effects delivered by different energetic compositions, by expressing them in terms of an equivalent TNT detonation.

  • O-207 Reaction Mechanisms for Rocket Motors under Mechanical Insults

    July 2019

    Rocket motors are designed to propel payloads to their final destination by ejecting hot gases through a nozzle. The gases are produced by combustion of fuel and oxidizers, which can be separated (hybrid combustion) or mixed with each other (gun propellant, propellant grain).

  • L-247 Additive manufacturing for energetic materials

    May 2019

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) started to develop in the early 80’s and has been keeping on evolving ever since. Many different processes were invented simultaneously.

  • O-204 Additive Manufacturing Processes Applied To Energetic Materials

    May 2019

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) started to develop in the early 80’s with many different processes being invented simultaneously. Of these only a few processing techniques have been adapted for the manufacture of Energetic Materials (EM).

  • L-224 Reaction Mechanisms For Rocket Motors to Mechanical Threats

    February 2019

    Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) have been used for decades to propel tactical and ballistic missiles as well as space launchers. The high impulse delivered by today’s solid propellants and their availability mean that they continue to be widely used by the military.
