Abstract:

The initiation of detonation by impact on an explosive is described and discussed in detail. The differences in behavior of homogeneous and heterogeneous explosives are delineated and discussed. A mathematical model is proposed which provides results agreeing with the results of an experimental study of the generation of detonation in a solid granular explosive. A critical examination of various theoretical studies of the initiation of detonation by shock wave is included.
