Abstract:

There is a surge of efforts to develop continuous processing techniques for the manufacture of explosives and propellants. A standardized procedure to measure the homogeneity of mixtures produced is required. This paper proposes a new algorithm, based on the concept of entropy, for the calculation of homogeneity of solid mixtures which could be adopted as an industry standard by the scientific community. Homogeneity Propellants Explosives.
