  • The present report describes detonation front particle velocity profile measurements for three high explosives (HE). Two were plasticized compositions based on PETN, HMX, and the third a TNT/RDX 50/50 mixture. Measurements were carried out using laser interferometry techniques with few nanosecond time resolution. Particle velocity profiles were recorded at HE-window (lithium fluoride [LiF]) interfaces. The detonation waves were diverging since they developed from a single initiation point… CONTINUE READING
