Abstract:

Consideration is given to the burning rate of powdered and porous explosives which sharply increases when the pressure is increased above a certain critical pressure of the disruption of the normal burning regime. The phenomenon of the disruption of the normal burning regime is treated and associated with a penetration of the hot combustion products into the pores of the explosive under the effect of the so-called dynamic increase of pressure over the burning surface.
