Detonation velocity of highly dispersed ammonium perchlorate and its mixtures with explosive substances

This paper describes the measurement of the detonation velocities close to ideal velocity relative to large charges of highly dispersed ammonium perchlorate (AP) and its mixtures with different explosive substances in thick-walled steel pipes. The relationship of the detonation velocity of AP with its density and the relationship between the detonation velocity of mixtures with the component ratios and oxygen coefficient of the mixtures are determined. The calculation of the detonation velocity of AP/explosive/Al three-component compositions is proposed for the first time.
