Abstract : 'Some detonation characteristics of aluminumcontaining substances,' by B. Ya. Svetlov: Experiments were performed on samples of ammonal (stoichiometric mixtures of ammonium nitrate with trinitrotoluene and aluminum powder) having different contents and dispersions of aluminum. The results showed that the difference in the rate of burning of the aluminum was not reflected in the rate of detonation of the ammonals (including those without trinitrotoluene) in charges of high enough diameter. The conclusion is that the rate of detonation of ammonals decreases with substitution therein of trinitrotoluene by aluminum. 'Perfecting the methods of measuring the speeds of detonations,' by F. M. Galadzhiy, V. I. Zenin and B. I. Vaynshteyn: Methods are described for measuring the speed of detonation of explosive charges by which there are employed the oscillographs OK-17M and IV-13M.
