This Explosives Engineering book by Paul Cooper is designed to help you get better understanding for all principles and theories in explosive engineering system, including chemistry and properties of explosives so readers know how to select, measure and manage proper explosives.
This Explosives Engineering textbook presents the basic technologies employed within the engineering of explosives and explosive techniques, i.e., chemistry, burning, detonation, shock waves, initiation theories, scaling. The Explosives Engineering book is published for undergraduate or graduate-level scientists and engineers with good background knowledge of basic physics, chemistry, mechanics and mathematics of calculus.
The intent in the Explosives Engineering book is to provide the engineer or scientist in the discipline with an understanding from the phenomena involved and the engineering equipment needed to solve/ design/ review a broad range of real challenges.
This Explosives Engineering book includes six sections cover the chemistry of explosives, energetic of explosives, shock waves, detonation, and initiation. Concise descriptions in the physical processes and underlying principle are expressed in terms. Special attributes consist of solved difficulties in each technical area, intensive data on explosive supplies and their properties and conduct, and lots of useful reference lists and bibliographies.
This Explosives Engineering book will aid engineers, scientists, and students get the engineering equipment needed to recognize, analyze, and solve a broad selection of explosion difficulties and design applications. It also will interest crime and accident scene investigators, and any person concerned using the regulatory and environmental problems concerned within the transportation, storage, and commerce of explosive supplies.
