Abstract
RESEARCH WILL BE CARRIED OUT TO DEMONSTRATE THE UNIQUE VALUE OF CHEMICALLY BONDED CERAMICS (CBC) AS MATERIALS FOR FABRICATION OF MECHANICAL DETERRENTS TO SYMPATHETIC DETONATION OF MUNITIONS. CBC MATERIALS WILL BE FORMULATED AND CHARACTERIZED FOR SHOCK ATTENUATING PROPERTIES AND FRAGMENT CAPTURE OR VELOCITY REDUCTION PROPERTIES. THE FINAL MATERIAL IS LIKELY TO BE A BINARY MATERIAL (TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF MATERIALS BACK TO BACK) OR A MATERIAL THAT IS HIGHLY ANISOTROPIC IN MATERIALS PROPERTIES. A FAMILY OF THESE MATERIALS WILL BE COMPLETELY CHARACTERIZED (INCLUDING SHOCK HUGONIOT DATA) TO ANALYTICALLY DETERMINE THEIR POTENTIAL TO ELIMINATE THE THREAT OF SYMPATHETIC DETONATION IN MUNITIONS.
