Abstract:

The detonation wave velocity in a solid explosive body of material, increased by the channel effect, is further increased by compounding of the channel effect andor by partial shock wave interruption by means of a threaded or rifled passage wall surface in a continuous, open channel arrangement. The high velocity detonation wave can be used to increase the jet velocity of shaped charges.
