WORKSHOP ON PYROTECHNIC COMBUSTION MECHANISMS
Since 2004, the Workshop on Pyrotechnic Combustion Mechanisms has occasionally occurred as a separate event in conjunction with IPS Seminars. This one-day workshop has featured extended presentations by invited specialists. The most up-to-date information about these workshops, including registration information, may be found on the Lutradyn website.
The 16th Workshop on Pyrotechnic Combustion Mechanisms will be held as a “virtual” online event, on June 28-30, 2021. Topics will include reactive materials, enhanced blast, agent defeat, and infrared countermeasures. Please check the Lutradyn website for the latest updates.
The 12th workshop was the most recent one that occurred in conjunction with an IPS Seminar. It was held on 9 July 2016, before the 42nd IPS Seminar. The topic was “The Science and Technology of Next Generation Pyrotechnics.” The invited speakers and presentations of that workshop were:
Jason Brusnahan, DST Group, Edinburgh, AUSTRALIA
Magnesium Boride, MgB2, a Fuel for Green Flares
Walter Focke, University of Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA
Towards “Greener” and Safer Mining Detonators
Sebastian Knapp, Fraunhofer ICT, GERMANY
Emission Spectroscopy on Pyrotechnic Mixtures
Thomas Winfield Myers, Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA
Explosive Chromophores for Laser Initiation
Steven Son, Purdue University, USA
Tailored Energetic Materials Using Modified Aluminum and Alloy Powders
Denis Spitzer, Institut Franco-Allemand Saint Louis, FRANCE
