Explosives Technology & Modeling Training

Introduction:

Explosives Technology & Modeling Training Course Description

This four-day Explosives Technology & Modeling Training is designed for scientists, engineers and managers interested in the current state of explosive and propellant technology. After an introduction to shock waves, the current explosive technology is described. Numerical methods for evaluating explosive and propellant sensitivity to shock waves are described and applied to vulnerability problems such as projectile impact and burning to detonation.

Skills Gained:

What makes an Explosive Hazardous?
Where Shock Wave and Explosive Data is available.
How to model Explosive and Propellant Performance.
How to model Explosive Hazards and Vulnerability.
How to use the furnished explosive performance and hydrodynamic codes.
