Quick Overview

Two Component High Explosive Mixtures and Improvised Shaped Charges


Desert Publications


Yet another result of research at Frankfort Arsenal, the material contained in this volume never reached our covert operatives before the program was phased out. The emphasis in these tests was to produce extremely powerful, yet easily made explosives by combining two compounds which separately were very safe to handle. One of the resulting explosives covered, Astrolite A-1-5, is the world’s most powerful non-nuclear explosive.

Two Component High Explosive Mixtures and Improvised Shaped Charges

Two Component Compound Explosives
When the decision has been made to use improvised explosives against a target, the target should dictate what type to use. There are three basic types of targets:
1. Soft (earth and personnel)
2. Medium (timber and concrete)
3. Hard (reinforced concrete and steel)
Explosives can also be classified into basic types. These are Low explosives that have the ability to burn (deflagrate) when ignited by a spark or flame (e.g. black powder) and High explosives that have the ability to detonate when ignited by a detonator (e.g. TNT).

High explosives can be further divided into low velocity, medium velocity and high velocity types. Velocity is the speed it takes to change a solid or liquid explosive into gaseous byproducts. The velocity of this transformation is called brisance. It is measured in meters per second (MPS).
