Abstract:

The objective of this program was to investigate the detonation propagation characteristics of aqueous slurries of TNT, Composition B, M-9 and M-10 in 2 inch, schedule 40, stainless steel pipes of various lengths. Two operational modes were studied the dynamic or pumping mode and, the static, or settled slurry mode. The dynamic condition was simulated by adding an inert gelling agent to a homogeneous, aqueous, explosive slurry. Information generated by this program will be used in support of the United States Armys munitions manufacturing and loading facilities.
