Abstract

The impact sensitivity and detonability of water-containing explosive compositions based on the powerful explosives RDX and HMX are studied. The relationship between the parameters characterizing the corresponding types of explosive tests is established. Formulations with practically acceptable sensitivity, power, and detonability parameters are found.

Key words
