S&T research team develops method to test insensitive explosives

Posted by on March 2, 2023

The goal of developing new explosives is often to enhance their performance by increasing key metrics such as pressure and velocity of detonation while simultaneously decreasing their ability to be initiated, in order to reduce the likelihood of accidental initiation. Reducing that likelihood makes their manufacture, storage and transport safer. With the aim of helping make those processes safer, a Missouri S&T student is working with a leading explosives engineering expert to evaluate the sensitivity of explosives.
