Abstract:

The development of a continuous ionization sensor which can be used to study detonation and predetonation phenomena in solid propellants and explosives is discussed. The system described is capable of following the progress of an ionized front down a charge and at the same time it measures the resistance or conductance of the front. During the evaluation of the technique, a number of explosives were used TNT, Comp B, Pentolite. The results are discussed qualitatively.
