The workshop's objectives are to improve understanding of cook off of energetic materials and the role that heating rate and heating conditions play in determining reaction violence up to system level.� These objectives will be achieved through discussions and presentations on chemical and physical changes leading to critical ignition and growth conditions, reaction phenomenology and models, and linking these through sub-scale testing to system-level tests.
