Commercial explosives, heterogeneous in nature, used in mining and quarrying applications tend to detonate non-ideally and their performance characteristics are not solely determined by thermodynamic analysis. Manufacturing companies are required to give some energy output estimate for their products and some occasionally undertake a non-ideal detonation analysis based on simplified theory in order to optimize the blasting process. This talk will discuss ideal and non-ideal detonation performance prediction currently in use in industry and will conclude with a brief review of a more sophisticated and reliable approach being undertaken within the Laboratory for Scientific Computing in Cambridge.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
