The wonderful projectile was not even heated under the intense deflagration
of the powder, nor liquefied, as they seemed to fear, in a shower of aluminum.
Index (KST)--How fast does the pressure wave travel?
The EIPV is an economical, yet highly reliable form of explosion isolation, a method for preventing deflagration
propagation through interconnecting conveying lines, thereby protecting additional process equipment and operating locations.
That sluggish burning is known as deflagration
. In car engines that knock, the flame travels supersonically, a burning known as detonation.
"From preliminary information that we have, the incident was an explosion caused by a deflagration
The accumulation of an explosive mixture in a pipeline is unsafe and one cannot rely on the absence of an ignition source during mechanical operations to prevent a deflagration
or detonation in the pipe.
His paper, "A Case Study of Pipework Fracture Due to Hydraulic Shock in an Ammonia System," describes the results of an incident investigation of a deflagration
that occurred at a frozen food factory.
Eighteen chapters containing abundant exercises cover topics including: thermodynamics; stoichiometry and thermochemistry of reacting systems; fuels; chemical kinetics; mass transfer; conservation relations; combustion of solid fuels, carbon, and char; deflagration
and detonation; and introductory turbulent combustion, among others.
The developers explain that the directed energy from the laser is capable of rapidly clearing unexploded devices by inducing a low-order burning or deflagration
reaction in the explosive material from a safe distance.
The tubular-shaped device directs a hot flame at the munitions to achieve a deflagration
effect, he said
In low-order explosives, the process of decomposition, called the speed of deflagration
or burning, produces heat, light, and a subsonic pressure wave.
