Terms of Reference of the MABS-Symposia

as adopted at Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1994 by the MABS Executive Committee
Reviewed by MABS Executive Committee September 20th 2016

Technical Scope

  1. MABS Symposium is an unclassified conference of primarily military scientists and engineers and their consultants, and all papers should be prepared with this audience in mind.

  2. The primary interest of the Symposium lies in phenomenology and damage studies of shock and blast involving explosive events.

  3. An essential feature of papers considered for presentation, therefore, is that they either be descriptive of such events or should illustrate techniques for the simulation of their effects. Such simulations could consist of studies using explosive charges, shock tubes, blast simulators, other loading devices, or computational and analytical methods.

  4. The military nature of the proceedings does not preclude the acceptance by the organizers of papers arising from a civil event or catastrophe.
