  • L-137 TEMPER V2.0 Tutorial

    October 2007

    The objective of this document is to provide TEMPER users with a tutorial reviewing the main features of TEMPER v2.0. The first section is devoted to the description of the successive steps in a TEMPER simulation.

  • O-118 BIRD, FRAID and SYR IM Test Results Databases

    October 2007

    To assist the Insensitive Munitions (IM) development community, the NATO Munitions Safety Information Analysis Center (MSIAC) has created three Excel databases that  compile available munition responses to bullet impact (BI), fragment impact (FI) and sympathetic reaction (SR) stimuli.

  • L-138 Implementation of New Stimulus and Model in TEMPER v2.0

    October 2007

    TEMPER is distributed in both a user version as an executable and in an open-source version to add new models or modify existing ones. This opportunity to have multiple TEMPER developers was taken into account early on in the code structure.

  • O-116 TEMPER Software from v1.0 to v2.0

    October 2007

    TEMPER, an acronym for Toolbox for Engineering Models to Predict Explosive Reactions, is a "toolbox" of empirical and analytical models dedicated to ammunition safety. Experts can use it in order to aid in the prediction of the response of a munition to a mechanical or a thermal threat.

  • L-086 Ed2 Fragment Impact Testing: MSIAC's Review and Proposal

    September 2007

    One of the potential threats identified in NATO STANAG 4439, Policy for Introduction, Assessment and Testing for Insensitive Munitions, is Fragmenting Munition Attack, or Fragment Impact as it is more commonly known.

  • L-131 Ed2 Implementing a Sympathetic Reaction Analytical Model in TEMPER: Setting the Stage

    August 2007

    The main objective of this document is to provide background and detailed information about sympathetic reaction phenomenology, relevant analytical models, parameters and key issues required to predict the response of a warhead subjected to the detonation of a donor.
