Classification of pipe bomb fragments using optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy
Date of Original Version
A study was carried out as part of an on-going research to correlate the energy of the propellant used in pipe bombs to the number of fragments produced. Using optical microscopy, microstructural changes within the fragments were studied. The average grain size and aspect ratio of individual grains were evaluated for pipe bomb fragments produced from different propellants. Finally, the resulting data was analyzed.
