Abstract:

Four explosives pressed to three densities and boostered with truncated cones of pressed pentolite were used to continue a study to determine optimum density and boostering for underwater evaluation of small charges. The results show that shock-insensitive mixtures will not fire reliably unless pressed at 90 TMD or less.
