Abstract:

It was demonstrated that, with equal thicknesses or metallic shells enclosing charges of Trotyl of 1.63 gcc density, the comparative impulse is greater in the shell in which the velocity of the shock wave is lower. Additional liberation of heat behind the detonation wave front of Trotyl in the presence of a shell was verified. Author
