A message from our President, Dr. Ernst-Christian Koch:
Dear members of the International Pyrotechnics Society,
I have pleasure in announcing that Dr. Michael M. Nardai (Fraunhofer ICT, Pfinztal, Germany) has been selected the recipient of this year's Dr. Bernard E. Douda IPS Young Scientist Award with his work "Interaction Energies Between Binder Polymers and Crystalline Surfaces in Composite Materials Determined by Solution Microcalorimetry and Computer Simulation".
Dr. Nardai has contributed significantly to the understanding of the interaction between energetic solid crystals and polymeric binders. The findings, the theoretical and experimental methodology disclosed in his paper provide the basis for the straightforward development of composite energetic materials with improved performance and reduced sensitivity towards shock and impact. Considering the current developmental trends his findings are of paramount importance for the energetic materials community.
The awarding ceremony will take place at the upcoming EUROPYRO 2015 Conference, May 4 – 7, 2015 in Toulouse, France. As part of the awards benefits Dr. Nardai receives a paid two year membership in IPS.
Dr. Ernst-Christian Koch
