Abstract

This paper presents a theoretical analysis, based on a simplified one-dimensional model, of the response of an explosive to a wide range of light intensities. A primary result has been the identification and development of a relationship among the important critical parameters. Numerical results illustrating the relationship among the critical light intensity, sample dimension, and ambient temperature have been obtained, with lead azide as the example.
