International Ballistics Society
This symposium will be chaired by Dr VK Saraswat, Member NITI Aayog, Government of India and Dr G. Satheesh Reddy, Secretary, Department of Defence (R&D) & Chairman DRDO, Government of India. The Aeronautical Society of India, Hyderabad Branch, and Cyberabad Convention Center Private Limited are helping to organise the ISB. Submission of abstracts is now open.

This is a new book published by DesTech and endorsed by the IBS. It is authored by Boris Ermolaev and Alexey Sulimov, Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics, and edited by Anna Crowley This book presents original research into the behavior, ignition mechanisms, and wave structure of convective burning and low-velocity detonations (LVDs). Such processes occupy an intermediate position between modes of normal combustion and normal detonation, and their properties directly affect the dynamics of explosions, including unplanned explosions caused by accidental ignition. The book illustrates techniques to stabilize convective burning and LVDs and control their properties, thus enabling energetic materials specialists and ballistics experts to manage potentially dangerous hazards of transition to normal detonation. In addition, the book provides a scientific foundation for the technical application of these processes in pulse-nozzle and missile devices and in jet injectors. It also offers new studies on compacted modified propellants, which, due to their burning mechanisms, can significantly enhance the performance of barrel systems. IBS members can purchase it at a special price. Contact the Membership Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. The book can be bought at the link below.
