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).

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.

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).
This document provides a review of techniques used for compatibility testing of energetic materials. The methods that these techniques employ and how they relate to the chemistry involved are discussed.
