    • Abstract


      Propagation of converging detonation waves in various explosives is studied using the equation of state, which considers both the thermal and elastic pressures. It is seen that the rate of increase of thermal pressure is higher than that of the elastic pressure during convergence. The present equation of state is better since it also gives the variation of temperature, whereas the polytropic form of the equation of state is independent of temperature. It is seen that the total detonation pressure is slightly greater than the elastic pressure. Results are compared with those reported elsewhere.
