a b s t r a c tElectrical conductivity profiles were measured in three detonating high explosives with initial densities slightly greater than loose-packed ones. Behind the detonation fronts, the conductivity peaks were found presumably correlating with the reaction zones. A distinct grain size effect was demonstrated: the conductivity peaks were clearly shorter in fine-grained materials. This suggests that the chemical reaction rate is faster for smaller grains. This supports the concept of a ''hot spots" re…
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 on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
