Paper Abstract

A detailed study of the detonation characteristics of initiating systems can be made using the well known "Aquarium Technique". High speed photography, in conjunction with computer simulation, help to set out the limits of initiating systems design criteria. The poster will present a) How high speed photography and computer predicted simulation work together - from fundamental experiments to new product design, and b) The benefits of this two-fold approach to primer design.
