Following many discussions and multiple iterations over two years, MSIAC has produced a largely self-consistent taxonomy and lexicon of terms related to defects in energetic materials and munition systems, based on the paradigm of materials science and engineering.
This report discusses the methodology employed by MSIAC in developing a model for classification of material performance, and subsequent development of the taxonomy and lexicon.
