Abstract : A technique for spheroidization of RDX has been developed using acetone as medium. Effect of spheroidized RDX vis-a-vis ordinary crystals of RDX on the pourability of RDX/TNT slurries has been studied. It is seen that mixture of different sizes of RDX crystals and ratio of coarse to fine plays very important role in increasing the pourability as well as the content of RDX in RDX/TNT charges up to 75 per cent.
