The Physics and Chemistry of Modified Explosives, November 4th – 8th, 2007.

The logo for the 4th Workshop on Explosive Behaviors is one image from a high-speed sequence of the detonation of a TBX charge. The sequence shows a unique nano-energetic-based TBX charge with a configuration designed to enhance turbulent mixing of the explosive's abundant fuel products with surrounding air. Frames are 10 µs apart, showing an expansion of approximately 7 charge radii at 55 µs.
