Physical properties of explosives. Quarterly report, January--March 1964

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This work is for the development of testing methods and determination of physical properties of H.E. formulations. An eight-cycle bulk compliance test on LX-04-1 produced a gain in density of 0.017 gm/cc from an average starting-density of 1.858 gm/cc, net gain of .810 gm/cc after one month storage. A group of tensile specimens were tested on three test machines in three locations (Baldwin at LRL, Instrom in Pantex Engineering and Tinius Olsen in Pantex Development), using specimens from a single pressing. The tests showed that these machines are able to produce similar results and are not extremely operator sensitive. It ... continued below

A group of tensile specimens were tested on three test machines in three locations (Baldwin at LRL, Instrom in Pantex Engineering and Tinius Olsen in Pantex Development), using specimens from a single pressing. The tests showed that these machines are able to produce similar results and are not extremely operator sensitive. It has been determined that LX-04-1 will not flow well enough at a loading of 50 psi to produce orientation grooves for pents. A tabulation of density, tensile strength, strain at ultimate stress, granule size and HMX particle size has been compiled for evaluating the several powder lots of LX-04-1 which have been used. Density and tensile strength appear to be better when PBX 9404 is pressed in the 300-ton (ram) press than it was for the same lot of material which was pressed in the 20-inch hydrostatic press.
