High explosives differ from other chemical substances in their ability to sustain steady detonation wave after proper initiation. In order to study the detonation wave itself or the effects it induces in inert materials one needs to be able to carry out experiments with reasonably sized charges. This talk will focus on practical aspects of selected “on campus” experiments in which explosive material is intentionally detonated.

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