By Rudolf Meyer

The unequalled, definitive reference for nearly forty years, this vintage paintings on explosives is now in its 7th, thoroughly revised and up to date version.
a few 500 monographic entries, prepared alphabetically, ponder the physicochemical homes, creation equipment, and secure purposes of over one hundred twenty explosive chemical substances. furthermore, 70 fuels, ingredients, and oxidizing brokers are mentioned in addition to the corresponding attempt equipment. exchange, corporation, and armed forces brief names are supplied for lots of of the fabrics indexed, whereas extra key beneficial properties comprise a mixed index and thesaurus with phrases and abbreviations in English, French, and German, in addition to conversion tables and plenty of literature references. ultimately, this integral resource additionally comprises defense information and shipping laws.

Bioprocess and Algae Reactor Technology, Apoptosis

This quantity within the sequence "Advances in Biochemical Engineering/Biotechnology" specializes in bioprocess and algae reactor expertise and apoptosis. All points of this interdisciplinary know-how, the place wisdom, equipment and services are required from chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, chemical engineering and desktop technological know-how are handled.

Suspension acoustics

This e-book is an advent to the physics of suspensions of bubbles, droplets, and reliable debris in either gases and fluids. instead of treating each one mix individually, a unified strategy is used that allows so much particle-fluid mix varieties to be mentioned jointly. to do that, the publication first provides an in depth dialogue of the elemental particle motions that small debris can maintain, paying specific awareness to translations and pulsations, and to the thermal results that ensue due to these motions.

Cryogenic Regenerative Heat Exchangers

An in-depth survey of regenerative warmth exchangers, this ebook chronicles the advance and up to date commercialization of regenerative units for cryogenic functions. Chapters disguise old heritage, recommendations, useful purposes, layout facts, and numerical suggestions, offering the most recent info for engineers to improve complicated cryogenic machines.

Sample text

One negative property of DNAM is its rapid hydrolysis at 80 °C, which results in the liberation of nitrous oxide (N2 O). This hydrolysis requires only one to two days at room temperature and is acid catalyzed. 861 g∕cm3 melting point: 186 °C Derivative of trinitroethylalcohol, addition product of → Trinitromethane and formaldehyde. Black Powder Schwarzpulver; poudre noire Black powder is a mechanical mixture of potassium nitrate, sulfur and charcoal, which is mostly pressed, granulated and classified into definite grain fractions.

Propellant-powered device used to generate electric or fluid power. Aquarium Test 18 Aquarium Test The parameter measured in this test is the pressure of underwater explosion. Lead or copper membranes are employed and the membrane deformation as a function of the performance of the explosive and of the distance from the explosion site is estimated. The measuring apparatus, consisting of piston and anvil, resembles the Kast brisance meter. An alternative technique is to measure the deformation of diaphragms or copper discs accommodated inside an air-containing vessel such as a can.

Booster Sensitivity Test The booster sensitivity test procedure is a scaled-up modification of the Bruceton Test (unconfined charge). 60 in long, of approximately 100 g total weight. The initial shock is degraded through wax spacers of cast Acrawax B, 15/8 in in diameter. The test charges are 15/8 in diameter by 5 in long. The value given is the thickness of wax in inches at the 50% detonation point. The weight of the tetryl pellet noted is the minimum that will produce detonation with the spacer indicated.
