Explosive Effects and Testing
To solve practical problems related to the effects of explosions, impacts, and fire on materials and structures in both military and commercial settings, SRI's Poulter Laboratory conducts extensive research and creates simulation scenarios. SRI also operates one of the largest, best equipped, privately owned explosives testing facilities in the world.
Products and capabilities include:
Low-pressure dilute explosives
A wide range of impact experiments
Explosive detection systems and other counter-terrorism solutions
Analysis of X-ray deposition, pulsed lasers, and shock waves on materials
Missiles and missile launch tubes
Methods for clearing landmines and obstacles in the surf zone
Improving the effectiveness of torpedoes
Simulating underwater explosions
Together with GexCon US, SRI is designing and conducting experiments to improve and validate tools used to minimize the risk of explosions or fires on offshore platforms.
SRI has developed a novel approach to safely and efficiently render harmless weapons and ammunition that are no longer needed for military use.
SRI has partnered with Sandia National Laboratories to provide the data necessary to ensure that hydrogen can be used safely as a transportation fuel.
SRI has developed a breakthrough technology for diagnosing and predicting fatigue failure in pipelines, aircraft, bridges, power plants, and other structures using quantitative 3D fractography.
