Abstract:

Simple empirical equations are given which permit the calculation of the detonation pressures and velocities of C-H-N-O explosives. The detonation pressures so derived correspond quite closely to values predicted by the computer code RUBY see AEC report UCRL-6815 or NASA report N62-16450, which employs the most recent parameters and covolume factors with Kistiakowsky-Wilson equation of state.
