The objective of the Dynamic Materials and Interactions portfolio is to develop fundamental scientific knowledge of the dynamic chemistry and physics of complex materials, particularly energetic and reactive materials. The portfolio focuses on energetic materials science and dynamics of heterogeneous materials.
Research supported by this portfolio seeks to discover, characterize, and leverage (1) fundamental chemistry, physics, and materials science associated with energetic and reactive materials; and (2) fundamental dynamics, shock physics, and materials science associated with complex, heterogeneous materials. The research will be accomplished through a balanced mixture of experimental, numerical, and theoretical efforts. This is required for revolutionary advancements in future Air Force weapons and propulsion capabilities including increased energy density and survivability in harsh environments. Research areas of interest emphasize the characterization, prediction, and control of critical phenomena which will provide the scientific foundation for game-changing advancements in munitions development and propulsion.
