  • 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).

  • 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-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).
