Investigation on friction sensitivity of explosives using Up-and-Down method(*in Japanese)
Dayu Ding


The friction sensitivities of high explosives and primary explosives were tested by the BAM Friction Apparatus with the Up-and-Down method and an equal interval of logarithm of a load was used as the testing interval. Only the logarithm standard deviation cannot estimate variation in sensitivity data because the distribution of ignition probability from the experimental results is related not only to the logarithm standard deviation but also the mean. Therefore, this research evaluated the variation by the range of loads corresponding to ignition probabilities.
