Summary

NONEL tube finds vast applications in civil and military because of its safe and confined explosion technique. Spectroscopic and chemical analysis of a NONEL tube with an uniform mixture of HMX and Al is reported here. Peak temperature obtained at the open end of the NONEL tube due to the detonation of the explosive has been calculated using Planck’s radiation law. The products of the chemical reaction taking place due to the ignition of HMX + Al are characterized using FTIR spectroscopy.
