Abstract:

A series of experiments were performed to determine environmental condition effects of HC white smoke mix. Temperature, humidity level, blending rates and time were found to have minimal effect on input sensitivities and energy release. Significant findings were gross sublimation of hexachloroethane from stored samples large inhomogeneities in the blended samples and inconsistencies in impact sensitivities of all samples compared to previous results.
