Abstract:

A summary is presented of the present formulation of the difference equations which form the basis of the one- and two-dimensional computer programs for pressure-initiated detonation. Since information on the chemical and physical behavior of actual propellants under detonation conditions is very limited, provision has been made for maximum flexibility in the form of the rate equations and the equations of state. A calculation has been carried out to determi e the detonability of a composite propellant, the properties of which conform to experimental data on reaction kinetics and equations of state published by other investigators. The material was found to be non-detonable under the particular initial conditions assumed for the problem. Author
