    Abstract: The experimental data for photoneutron reaction cross sections for 127I obtained using beams of quasimonoenergetic annihilation photons and the method of neutron multiplicity-sorting at Livermore (USA) and Saclay (France) were analyzed using objective physical data reliability criteria. It was found that data of both laboratories contain significan... Show More

    Abstract: Detonation velocity is one of the most important characteristics of explosives. For solid hydro carbon-based explosives it is generally greater than 4000 m/s. Detonation velocity depends to some extent upon the particle size of the explosives, increased charge diameter and increased confinement of the explosive. There is no report indicating the de...
