Few studies have previously attempted to establish the nature of chemical evidence that can remain following detonation, with the majority focusing instead on developing methods for trace explosives analysis. In this talk, the findings from detonations of improvised and military explosive charges will be outlined, in particular that each produces morphologically distinct post-blast explosive residues that disperse uniquely around detonation centres. Methods of combining experimental and computational modelling techniques within this field are explained, and the benefits of doing so for the development of post-blast crime scene investigation are highlighted.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
