612 Thermophysics and Reactions in Energetic Materials

Wednesday, November 16, 2016: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
Bay View (Hotel Nikko San Francisco)
Description:
The focus of the session is on theoretical prediction and measurement of thermophysical properties of energetic materials. The properties of explosives and propellant compounds are important for manufacturing and packaging munitions and for predicting and managing and resulting environmental consequences of their use. We encourage you to sumit and abstract for presentation at the session.
