Abstract:A number of secondary explosives has been compared with regards to their detonation velocity and detonation pressure in a method involving a small detonation cap placed against a witness plate. The resulting craters in the plate correspond to literature data for the detonation behaviour of the chosen secondary explosives. CL-20 is the explosive with highest impact in the witness plate in accordance with the literature.

In the development of a new explosive; copper tetraaminodinitramide; this method in combination with other tests has been of great help in the characterisation of both explosive and sensitivity properties.
