Explosives Technology & Modeling
$2290 per person
This four-day course 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. Attendees will receive his book Numerical Modeling of Explosives and Propellants, Third Edition, published in 2008 by CRC Press.
Laptops are required for this course.
