Explosive Characterization Testing
What are the proper test methods to develop relative effectiveness factors for explosives?
DSIAC was tasked with researching and determining the testing methods to develop relative effectiveness factors for various explosives to support a modeling effort. DSIAC contacted authors of the technical manual that lists effectiveness factors of military-grade explosives, who then recommended laboratories within the Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center (ERDC). DSIAC then facilitated the introduction between the inquirer and the laboratory branch chiefs who conduct explosive characterization testing.
