Focus Area 3: Materials Properties of Energetic Materials (EM) and Additively Manufactured Energetics Materials (AMEM)


Due to limited resources, this Focus Area is currently delayed.


Goal: Additively fabricate model EMs with variations and gradients in their chemistries, porosity, particle size, and mechanical/thermal properties, and subject these materials to high-rate impact and thermal loadings with a suite of in situ diagnostics.
