Abstract:

The effort described herein seeks to explore the near-resonant thermomechanics of energetic and mock energetic particulate composite materials. The effort specifically focuses on i characterizing the macroscale, elastic and plastic responses of these materials under various mechanical excitations at a range of ambient temperatures and ii developing preliminary computational modeling tools, which can be used to predict material response during energetic material formulation and munition design.
