Weak impacts on high explosives (HE) can give rise to either violent reactions or harmless fracture and material dispersal. Predicting this response or the state of damage in the material remains an unsolved technical challenge. In situ mesoscale insights to anisotropic dislocation-mediated plasticity, phase transitions, and damage are needed to quantify fundamental structure-property relationships, inform theory, and enable high fidelity simulations.1 We have attempted such an effort and will present an overview of our progress so far.
