  1. Mesoscale Thermo-Mechanical Response of Traditionally and Additively Manufactured Energetic Materials to Dynamic Loading

    15 Sep 2021 | Contributor(s):: Keyhani, Amirreza

    Advisors: Min Zhou, Richard W Neu, Antonia Antoniou, Shuman Xia, Julian J RimoliThe thermo-mechanical responses of traditionally manufactured polymer-bonded explosives (PBXs) and an additively manufactured energetic material (AMEM) simulant under dynamic loading are studied. The performance of...

  2. The Role of Viscoplasticity in the Deformation and Ignition Response of Polymer Bonded Explosives

    08 Jun 2015 | Contributor(s):: Hardin, David Barrett

    Advisors: Min Zhou, Richard Neu, Michael Lindsay, Naresh Thadhani, Julian J. RimoliThe effect of viscoplastic deformation of the energetic material HMX on the mechanical, thermal, and ignition response of a two-phase (HMX and Estane) polymer bonded explosive (PBX) is analyzed. Specific attention...
