Abstract

"It was the purpose of the investigation described herein to find the answers to some of the questions which arise with the use of an ammonium nitrate--non nitroglycerine--mixture as an explosive, such as

a) the effect of the percentage of fuel oil in the mixture

b) the effect of the loading density of the mixture

c) the effect of the diameter of the charge

d) the effect of the particle size of the ammonium nitrate

e) the effect of different reducing fuels

f) the effect of different primers"--Introduction, pages 5-6.
