Results of experimental measurements are presented for the dependence of the detonation velocity on the charge diameter for homogeneous nitromethane and propylene glycol dinitrate and for the ideal detonation velocities for allyl nitrate, diethlyene glycol dinitrate, methylene glycol dinitrate, and ethyl nitrate. Literature data on measurement of the dependence of the detonation velocity on the charge diameter for liquid TNT, nitroglycerin, glycol dinitrate, and methyl nitrate are collected. It… 
Similarities and Differences in Explosion Hazards of Organic Peroxides and High Explosives: an Experimental Study
Properties that cause explosion hazard of organic peroxides, hydroperoxides and nitrocompounds are examined in the article. Ability to thermal explosion initiation of benzoyl peroxide and of
Autoignition Parameters and Detonation Critical Diameter of Hexanitromannite
The dependence of the ignition delay of hexanitromannite on the initial temperature was determined experimentally. The detonation critical diameter of cast hexanitromannite and its solutions in
Analysis of Solid Explosion Products of Mixtures Based on HMX and Peroxide Benzoyl with Aluminum
The explosive transformation of mixtures of HMX and benzoyl peroxide with aluminum was studied. Aluminum oxides formed during initiation of an impact explosion were investigated. An x-ray analysis


Detonation transformations in an aerated liquid
In this work the DEGDN was obtained by the standard method [4] from diethylene glycol (pure grade) and gelled with a small quantity (3%) of KNh colloxylin (12% N). The nitromethane (PNR production)
