Abstract:

DNT shows Group 1 explosive behavior although it can be dead-pressed moderately easily. Its infinite diameter detonation velocity is approximated by detonation velocity mmmicron sec 1.84 2.913 loading density. Its detonability and shock sensitivity are, respectively, near those of high bulk density nitroguanidine and DATB. A review of factors affecting detonability and sensitivity of a chemically homogeneous explosive is also presented.
