Abstract:

In many experiments done with explosives it is necessary to rapidly heat the explosive. The common technique is to introduce the heat by conduction. These experiments are difficult to treat theoretically because its not at all clear what the temperature is at a small fraction of a second after the start of heat conduction. As a result interest is found in the rapid body heating of explosives where large thermal gradients can be avoided. The most obvious applicable technique is to use dielectric heating.
