Methods have been developed to calculate the detonation parameters of mixtures of hexogen with inert additions and evaluate their reliability. It is shown that it is possible to obtain explosives with unique properties — explosives that can undergo detonation but not burn and then detonate. That in turn eliminates the chance of accidental explosions during their use.
