Towards the miniaturization of explosive technology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Condensed phase explosives used in conventional explosive systems have a charge size on the order of a meter or a sizable fraction of a meter. This paper addresses a range of issues required to scale downwards the size of explosive systems by a factor of one hundred to one thousand.
