Abstract:

The technique of Accelerating Rate Calorimetry ARC was used to investigate the thermal stabilities of energetic materials used in production and manufacturing at MRC-Mound. Plots of heat rate versus temperature, along with temperature and pressure versus time plots, were determined for selected secondary explosives and one model compound. Analyses of these data were used to derive zero-order kinetic parameters, time-to-explosion plots, and approximate critical explosion temperature.
