Nitroglycerin, trinitrotoluene, nitroguani-dine, and other high explosives are used in admixture with nitrocellulose in smokeless powders. Fulminate of mercury if. High explosives consist of materials that typically combine the reacting elements in the same molecule. This allows them to react much faster, and they “detonate.” Detonation involves supersonic shock waves that pass through the material, causing chemistry that happens quite a bit faster than burning. High explosives do not need to be.

    Chapter EXPLOSIVES DEFINITIONS 1. An explosive substance is a solid or liquid substance (or mixture of substances) which is in itself capable by chemical reaction of producing gas at such a temperature and pressure and at such a speed as to cause damage to the surroundings. Pyrotechnic substances are included even when they do not evolve gases. Ammunition and Explosives Safety Standards *Department of the Army Pamphlet –64 H i s t o r y.

H.; Persson, P. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at   The shock and detonation response of high explosives has been an active research topic for more than a century.

In recent years, high quality data from experiments using embedded gauges and other diagnostic techniques have inspired the development of a range of new high-fidelity computer models for explosives.

High Explosives and Propellants, Second Edition is a four-part book classified into High Explosives, Blasting Accessories, Application of High Explosives, and Deflagrating and Propellent Explosives.

Part I, High Explosives, centers on the general principles, manufacture, design, and assessment of this type of explosive.

Military high explosives are safe to handle, have a long shelf life, their energy density is high and the propagation of the explosion (detonation reaction) is very fast. The energetic compounds. Explosive devices may be mechanical, chemical, or atomic.

Mechanical explosions occur when a closed system is heated—a violent pressure rupture can occur. However, this doesn’t make a heated can of soup an explosive. An explosive substance is one which reacts chemically to produce heat and gas with rapid expansion of matter.

Detonation Wave. A detonation wave is a combustion wave propagating at a supersonic speed. It is composed of a leading shock followed by a chemical reaction zone. The leading shock compresses the high-explosive material, and converts the high-explosive into gaseous products with very high pressure and temperature in the reaction zone.
