Abstract:

A miniature detonation chamber has been designed and manufactured to allow loading, detonation, reloading, and gas sampling without appreciable loss of products or pressure. The actual products of detonation are compared with the theoretical products. From this comparison, a study is made of the effects on the environment from sequential, confined detonation of conventional explosives in an Atomic Energy Commission test site. Author
