Reduction of aerodynamic drag by J. E Field( Book )

2 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the design, construction and evaluation of a working torsion disc viscometer. Initial tests at gas pressures between 9.1 mbar and 1000 mbar show that the theory of the instrument is adequate and that the viscometer is capable of detecting small changes in gas viscosity. A thorough investigvation of the effect of radioactive irradiation on gas viscosity will be made shortly, following the work of Kestin and sHah. An analysis of their approach is given here, viewed in the light of our preliminary work, and suggests the most likely ways of achieving a change in gas viscosity. (Author)

Initiation of Explosives by Low Strength Shocks by David Tabor( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes a study of initiation processes involving weak (i.e., Kbar strength) shocks. The rapid collapse of a gas space onto the surface of an explosive has been photographed directly and it is shown that adiabatic heating of the gas can cause initiation of azide crystals within 10 to the -7th power seconds. Gas bubbles down to 50 micrometers in diameter have been shown to be effective. The impact behaviour of films of the secondary explosives, PETN, RDX, HMX, TNT and Tetryl in the drop-weight test has been photographed in transmission. PETN has been shown to ignite at local hot spots following melting and flow. Mass spectrometry studies of thermally induced and fracture induced decomposition due to fragmentation can be important. Experimental results on initiation by micro-particle impact and by electrical breakdown are presented. (Author)
