The International Detonation Symposium started in 1951 and was originally a Navy-sponsored discussion of about 17 papers. In subsequent years, it has been sponsored by both DoD and DOE labs and has grown to over 450 participants with more than 250 papers presenting experiments and models of detonation phenomena, shock, properties of explosives, equations of state, etc. The object of the symposia is to bring together scientists actively engaged in research on detonation and associated phenomena from all over the world.

The technical program of the 17th International Detonation Symposium will focus on the following primary areas:

  • Detonation and Sub-Detonative Phenomena
  • Modeling capabilities
  • Molecular and Meso-Scale Effects
  • New/Non-Traditional Materials
  • Thermal and Mechanical Properties
  • Advances and Novel Experimental Techniques
