Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves


Experimental data on the low-energy high-current electron beam initiation of some energetic materials in the presence of a nanosized inert powder (copper oxide) are reported. The resistance of the energetic material + inert admixture composition to the action of the pulsed electron beam is demonstrated to fall dramatically at a certain admixture concentration.
