Abstract:

The steel dent output of thirty-four explosives has been measured as a function of the explosive density and consolidation pressure using the Small Scale Gap Test Configuration. Output data summaries include observed dents, assessment of measurement errors, dents corrected for block hardnesses, and dents fitted to straight lines. Discussions are included to explain those various presentations. Useful by-products of the output study are the density vs consolidation pressure data. Nomographs have been devised as a compact way of presenting this information.
