L-059 Previous NIMIC Workshop Conclusions Relevant To The Small Scale Testing And Modelling Workshop, Fort Walton Beach

March 2000
Dr Peter R. Lee (Project Manager), Dr Michael W. Sharp (Energetic Materials)

The NIMIC has recognised from its inception that its regular workshops constitute a significant factor in the advancement of IM technology in the member nations. They have the virtues that experts in different aspects of IM technology can inform others of their research and participants can comment on it and bring new perspectives to it via their own experience. New understanding of the technologies has been achieved via the insights of participants and the process of the organisation, conduct and reporting of a workshop, which is regarded as of vital importance to all member nations by the NIMIC staff.

In order to build on the progress made at these previous meetings, NIMIC has issued this report detailing the pertinent discussions and conclusions from previous workshops. In total, eight workshops (one in two parts) have a bearing on this meeting.

  • Bullet and Fragment Impact (1992)
  • Cook-off (1993)
  • Sensitivity of Energetic Materials when Fractured or Granular (1993)
  • Streamlining Safety Testing for Munitions (1994)
  • Sympathetic Reaction between Munitions (1995)
  • Shaped Charge Jet Impingement on Energetic Materials and Munitions (1996)
  • Cook-off and XDT Mechanisms (1996)
  • IM Testing Workshop [Parts I and II] (1997)
