Prediction of Overpressure from Finite Volume Explosions
Keywords: Tri nitro toluene, Blast waves
AbstractTri-nitro toluene (TNT) equivalence is not a good criterion for evaluating the practically encounted nonideal blast waves during ignition and in explosion-safety problems. A theoretical model which shows the trends related to the effects of source volume and energy time release on blast wave strength is discussed. A slower energy release and a larger source volume are shown to be necessary to reduce the blast effects.
