Title: Considerations on the Safety and Performance Assessment Trials Conducted for the Energetic Materials Equipping Munitions
Author(s): Constantin Enache   Daniel Antonie   Doru-Adrian Goga         

Abstract: This paper aims to present the most significant tests necessary in order to evaluate the safety and performance of the energetic materials comprised by explosive ammunition. Its purpose is to present the results obtained for several energetic materials considered as representative and most frequently employed in producing ammunition. It should be noted that the tests for safety and performance evaluation are performed for all explosive materials comprised by the ammunition.

Keywords: testing and evaluation, explosive materials, ammunition.
