Abstract:

The detonation parameters of a representative of each of four types of commercial explosive a mixture of ammonium nitrate and fuel oil, commonly called ANFO, a traditional stick dynamite, an aluminized slurry blasting agent, and a nonaluminized slurry blasting agent were determined experimentally by instrumented cylinder and hemisphere tests. The equation-of-state parameters for each of the materials were then calculated by using the J-W-L equation of state.
