Abstract:

A high-speed photographic study was made of the initiation of explosive liquids using sparks and impact and of single crystals of explosive solids using shock and hot wires. The physical homogeneity of the material was shown to have a marked effect on its sensitivity. Studies of the fracture of inert solids demonstrated the importance of geometry on the fragmentation process. Various branches of classical explosion theory were extended. Author
