Research Project: High Strain Rate Characterization of Polymer-based High Explosives

There is an emerging need for better understanding of the behaviour of polymers under shock loading, particularly during the penetration of a munition through hard targets. Polymers are being used around the electronics to attenuate shock, and the explosive charges are now polymer bonded materials. There is a need for validated material models / behaviour laws to describe the behaviour of these materials for use in hydrocode modelling tools to provide high integrity simulations of the munitions mechanical responses during penetration.
