  • L-228 History of Natural Fragmentation Models

    September 2018

    When dealing with the performance of munitions and warheads, the most important parameters to characterize are the mass distribution of fragments and their velocity.

  • L-199 Compendium of Mitigation Technologies for Rocket Motors

    July 2018

    One of the challenges related to munitions safety is to make munitions insensitive to external stimuli (heating, operational threats, etc.) To reduce the violence of response of munitions to Insensitive Munitions threats, several mitigation technologies are used.

  • L-222 Life Assessment of NC Based Energetic Materials

    June 2018

    Nitrocellulose (NC), with its variable energetic content, solubility with energetic and non-energetic plasticisers, and formation of structural materials, makes it a very versatile material.

  • O-191 Reaction Mechanisms for Rocket Motors

    April 2018

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

  • O-192 Mitigation Technologies for Propulsion Applications

    April 2018

    During the last decades, strong efforts have been made by the IM community to decrease the reaction level of munitions when submitted to standardized tests considered representative of operational threats such as fast and slow heating, bullet and fragment impacts, sympathetic reaction and shaped
