Abstract : The temperature and absorbing capacity at the height of the flame flare of a secondary explosive - hexogene was measured at various pressures. The quantity of heat liberated at the initial stage of combustion of the powder and its role in the balance of the heat entering into the heating of the powder in the process of combustion, considerably exceeds the quantity and role of the heat being liberated in the reaction layer of the condensed phase in the combustion of hexogene, at least in the region of pressures investigated.
