Abstract : This publication contains a list of 341 references relating to the mechanism of transition to detonation in heterogeneous high energy solids, with particular reference to solid rocket propellants and granular propellant charges for guns. Because of the important role played by porosity, many of the references pertain to flow, flame spread and pressure rise in porous materials, and to the mechanics of formation cracks and propagation under dynamic loading. This partial list of references was developed primarily from lists contained in papers presented at the 1978 ONR/AFOSR Workshop on Deflagration-to-Detonation Transition (CPIA Publication 229, September 1978), and from reports received subsequent to that Workshop. A subject coding was developed and used to classify each reference. (Author)
