A study of diverging detonation in high-explosive systems. [Detonation in PBX-9502 main charge with two different booster materials; TATB and X-0407]
Description: Initiation of an insensitive high-explosive main charge can be achieved by using a booster. The requirement for the booster high explosive should be high sensitivity rather than high energy. Using a reactive model, this study presents the evolution of detonation in PBX-9502 main charge with two different booster materials: low-density ultrafine TATB and X-0407 in a diverging configuration. 7 refs., 3 figs.
