Abstract:

Some of the various methods used to evaluate the compatibility and degradation of organics when exposed directly or indirectly to energetic and nonenergetic materials is described in this report. The compatibility and degradation of materials has been and will continue to be a repeated problem with both developmental and field commodities. The deterioration process is due to numerous factors, i.e., time, temperature, humidity, heat, types of exposure storage - direct or indirect, materials involved, etc. If this type of information is not available prior to fielding an item, catastrophic failures could result. Therefore, it is imperative that information on the compatibility of systems be known or generated prior to fielding.
