Pagination or Media Count:
An analysis is conducted of the many works which have been published on the sensitivity of explosives to shock waves. An attempt is made to bring out the relative influence of various chemical and physical parameters associated with the explosive as well as the need to characterize the impact by pressure and time span. A critical study of the notion of energy threshold concludes the report.
