Catalytic Effect of Two Shapes of Nano‐Fe2O3 on Hexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane Using a Non‐Isothermal Decomposition Kinetic Method

06-Jul-2016 | Rong Gao, Ningning Zhao, Jianbing Liu, Ting Zhang, Haixia Ma, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract Nanosized Fe2O3 particles (nano‐Fe2O3) with two shapes (tetrakaidecahedral and grainy) were synthesized by hydrothermal methods. The morphologies and structures were characterized using a combination of experimental techniques including X‐ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron ...


Insensitive Munitions Fragment Impact Gun Testing Technology Challenges

07-Jun-2016 | Ernest L. Baker, Nausheen Al‐Shehab, Kevin Miers, Daniel Pudlak, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract The STANAG 4496 Ed. 1 Fragment Impact, Munitions Test Procedure, specifies a standard test of 2530±90 m s−1, an alternate test of 1830±60 m s−1 and a standard fragment (projectile) geometry. The standard can be challenging to achieve and has several loosely defined and undefined ...


Structural Defect Evolution of TATB‐Based Compounds Induced by Processing Operations and Thermal Treatments

02-Jun-2016 | Mathieu Guerain, Alexandre Forzy, Alexandre Lecardeur, Hervé Trumel, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract 2,4,6‐Triamino‐1,3,5‐trinitrobenzene (TATB) compounds are commonly used in high performance explosives because of their thermal stability and high detonation velocities compared to other materials. The insensitivity and mechanical properties are related to the stability of their ...


MSIAC – Supporting the Insensitive Munitions Community

02-Jun-2016 | Michael W. Sharp, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract The NATO Munitions Safety Information Analysis Center (MSIAC) is a multinational collaboration that collects, stores, and analyses technical information related to Munitions Safety (MS) and Insensitive Munitions (IM). MSIAC supports its member nations through a variety of products and ...


Characterization of P(BAMO/AMMO) ETPE Prepared Using Different Diisocyanates

02-Jun-2016 | Gang Wang, Yunjun Luo, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract Poly(3,3‐bisazidomethyl oxetane/3‐azidomethyl‐3‐methyl oxetane) energetic thermoplastic elastomers (P(BAMO/AMMO) ETPEs) is one of the most valuable ETPEs in the field of energetic binders. P(BAMO/AMMO) ETPEs were prepared using different diisocyanates (TDI, HMDI, IPDI, and HDI) to ...


Reactive Liners Prepared Using Powders of Aluminum and Aluminum‐Magnesium Alloys

23-May-2016 | Jose Guadarrama, Edward L. Dreizin, Nick Glumac, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract Cylindrical reactive liners filled with powders of aluminum, aluminum‐magnesium alloys, and aluminum‐magnesium powder blends were prepared and initiated by a centrally located explosive charge. The experiments were performed in a cubic chamber. Several transient pressure measurements ...


A Comparison of the Structure, Synthesis, and Properties of Insensitive Energetic Compounds

18-May-2016 | Philip Pagoria, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract The continued interest in improving the safety of munitions towards unintentional insults has led to a significant amount of research in the synthesis of new insensitive energetic compounds. This paper discusses various approaches to the synthesis of insensitive energetic compounds, ...


Pressure Profile Prediction of Dual‐Thrust Rocket Motors under Uncertainties

18-May-2016 | Alaa R. Abdel Gawad, Mahmoud Y. M. Ahmed, Hamed M. Abdalla, Mohamed A. El‐Senbawy, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract Mathematical models that simulate the internal ballistics of solid propellant rocket motors are widely used in lieu of the expensive, hazardous, time‐consuming static firing experiments. Since they rely on the input of various measured data, these models are vulnerable to ...


Some Aspects on Safety and Environmental Impact of the German Green Gel Propulsion Technology

12-May-2016 | Helmut K. Ciezki, Karl Wieland Naumann, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract This article gives a short introduction into the technology of gelled propellant rocket motors and gas generators. A brief introduction outlines the specific features of the German green gelled propellant rocket motor technology and the family of monopropellants that cover a variety ...


Covalent and Ionic Insensitive High‐Explosives

09-May-2016 | Thomas M. Klapötke, Tomasz G. Witkowski, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2016

Abstract Ongoing research into new insensitive energetic materials with low sensitivity toward accidental stimuli, high thermal stability and high performance characteristics is undertaken in many research groups worldwide. In order to obtain promising compounds, which fulfil the sensitivity, ...
