Plastic bonded energetic materials

plastic bonded explosives are composites containing energetic grains, ranging in size from less than one to a few hundred micrometers, embedded in a matrix of high-polymer binder.

modern explosion science and engineering

This blog focuses on the behaviors of energetic materials (such as solid rocket propellants, high explosives), shock waves,  and explosions. And also on the protections, from the design of protecting materials and structures.

Mitigating the threat of terrorist attacks

The following are links to the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) documents:

Mitigating the threat of terrorist attacks against high occupancy buildings is a challenging task.

Chapter 1: ASSET VALUE, THREAT/HAZARD, VULNERABILITY, AND RISK
This chapter presents several methodologies for architects and engineers to quantify risk and to identify the most effective mitigation measures to achieve a desired level of protection against terrorist attacks at an acceptable cost.

Size effect of energetic crystals in high explosives and solid propellants

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Energetic materials, such as solid propellants and high explosives, can be considered as composite materials with energetic particles embedded in polymeric binder matrix. These energetic materials display strong particle size effects. For example, large particles debond earlier than small ones in high explosives.
