Abstract:

Within these four Q-D categories there are two indices which determine which Q-D prescription should be selected for use in a given situation. The first is the United Nations Hazard Division 1 subdivisions of the explosives being considered. The second is the Net Explosive Quantity NEQ. These indices are two of the three major reasons why big bucks are wasted. The third reason introduces probabilities. Lets look first at the waste caused by using the two Q-D indices.
