MSIAC Hazard Classification (HC) Tests

MSIAC

Will start two new projects in 2019 that are related to data collection during Insensitive Munition (IM) and Hazard Classification (HC) tests:

Guidance on Instrumentation for IM and HC Tests. This project will review the use of existing instrumentation and will seek to share and develop best practice.

Collation and Analysis of IM and HC Test Data. This project will analyse existing IM blast, thermal and fragmentation test data to gain a better understanding of the explosive effects for sub-detonative munition responses. The output from this study will be used to inform on reduced consequences from accidents involving IM, which could be taken into account in quantitative risk assessments.

We need your inputs to help us gather available information and we therefore kindly ask you to contribute to a new MSIAC questionnaire.Benefits of contributing are that your test procedures and data will be included in the analysis. Also we will make recommendations for improved and harmonised test procedures as well as recommendations for the characterisation of the munition responses and their use for safety distances and risk analysis.

Please follow the hyperlink below to access the questionnaire:
