A new concept in excess and waste military explosive material disposal envisions that conventional military ordnance material be disposed of in large batch configurations by detonationdeflagration in confined underground chambers. The gaseous products of the disposal event could be vented, if desired, to appropriate recovery or environmental control equipment, or left to vent naturally through the surrounding earth filter. The purpose of this work is to determine the percentage concentration of the major gaseous products that are produced by the disposal of conventional military explosives in a laboratory-scale confined chamber and related these results to full scale implementation of this new concept in conventional explosive disposal.
