Material Characterization in the Development of Advanced Defense Subsystems

Presented by Arya Hakimian

Thermal conductivity is critical in the aeronautics industry, from understanding the thermal behavior of the fuel, to the thermal management of internal electronic systems, at various temperatures and pressures.

Join our upcoming webinar on April 4th to explore how thermal conductivity measurements and thermal/mechanical analysis can be used for various defense applications, including storage of explosives, batteries, composites, and composite tire tracks.

From explosive use and storage, to thermal management; thermal conductivity is a key property that must be known to fully understand the system properties and predict performance. The defense industry contains a multitude of applications, from energetics and aeronautics, to batteries and power electronics.  Understanding the thermal kinetics for these defense applications is necessary for both safety and performance. Common applications include predicting ignition energy for Self-Accelerating Decomposition Temperature (SADT) for the safe storage and predictable use of energetics.

The rapid advancements in material science also requires extensive mechanical analysis for quality control, research and modelling before these materials are put into the field. For example, monitoring the crack growth behaviour of a composite rubber track (CRT) through the use of a high force Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA).  Other thermal analysis topics will include measuring the ignition temperature of a material, testing composites, and measuring the performance of vibrational dampers.
