12 Evaluation of explosives Interior ballistics and detonics
The main focus is the measurement of performance characteristics, safety parameters and the investigation of phenomena: Gun propellants, solid rocket propellants, explosives and special systems are investigated, especially new substances and propellants The infrastructure (incl. shooting range, explosives bunker, rocket test stand, intrinsically safe boxes) enables investigations from a laboratory scale up to the kg range Beside standard test methods and evaluation processes (e. g. ballistic vessels with interiour ballistic analysis), measurement technologies and experimental setups are further developed (e. g. miniaturised detonation speed measurement), and modelling and simulation are researched.
