Abstract : Results are presented from studies of the influence of nitroesters on the stability of detonation of explosives performed for work safety in the mining industry. The stability of detonation is characterized by the critical adjusted distance to compacted charges at which the charge being studied detonates. The less this critical distance, the higher the detonation stability of a charge of explosive. (Author)
