L IntroductionI T is almost axiomatic that the macroscopic behavior of a material is strongly dependent on its microstructure. This is especially true for explosives, where variations in microstructure have a marked effect on many aspects of reactivity that affect safety, handling, and performance. Although the importance of effects of microstructure on certain aspects of explosive behavior has been well known for many years, a thorough and accurate description of the relationship between explosive behavior a…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
