  • 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-245 Resonant Acoustic Mixing Applied to Energetic Material

    May 2019

    Resonant Acoustic Mixing (RAM) is an innovative process that provides a homogeneous distributive mixing in a short period of time. RAM is based on the resonance of a platform on which the mix vessel rests.
