Experimental Researches on Detonation of Aluminized Explosives to High-Speed Flyer Impact
In present paper, aluminized explosives with separator inside are detonated by plane wave loads from metal flyer impacts. Four types of aluminized explosives(THAL、H-6、HBX-1、HBX-3) that used widely in warheads are test experimentally in order to obtain the critical thickness of separator(thicknesses L50-50% possibility of detonating). The critical separator thicknesses of detonating four types of aluminized explosives are calculated through statistical method according to experimental data. Stability sequence for these four explosive were determinate according to anti-detonation capability. The experimental results provided reference for the selection of explosive and structural design of warhead.
