Ignition energies for a large number of propellants and some explosives have been determined using the locked-stroke compressor 2,3,4. The energies have been compiled and presented in tabular form. Effects of varying the sample diameter as well as the space between the sample and the viewing window have been investigated. The results show that the rate of heat transfer decreases as the diameter of the propellant cylinder increases, and increases as the spacing between the sample and the window increases.
