  1. Dynamic Failure of Polymer-Bonded Explosives under Periodic Excitation

    07 Aug 2017 | Contributor(s):: Rachel Katherine Kohler, Camilo Alberto Duarte, Marisol Koslowski

    Accidental mishandling of explosive materials leads to thousands of injuries in the US every year. Understanding the mechanisms behind the detonation process is crucial to prevent such accidents. In polymer-bonded explosives (PBX), high-frequency mechanical excitation generates thermal energy...
