Abstract: 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…
