Similarity and differences between conditions for initiation and failure of detonation.

Abstract

A theory is proposed to study the sensitivity of cylindrical explosives. Using the equations governing the conservation of mass, energy, and momentum, the equation of state, and Newtonian mechanics, we have derived the expression D = D(o)e(-a2/d), in which the apparent length of the reaction zone, a, takes into account burned and unburned explosive and… (More)
