Abstract:

The sensitivity, output, and density of pure DATB and DATBZytel 95 5 have been studied in the small scale gap test for consolidating pressures ranging from 4 kpsi to 64 kpsi. The results show that composition alone is not sufficient for stating the performance of these explosives. The density of the charge has a major effect on the sensitivity and output.
