Abstract : Under conditions of impact in copra the critical conditions for the generation of an explosion of model mixtures of explosive + explosive and explosive + indifferent admixture systems were investigated. It was shown that for all the studied systems, with the exception of explosive + indifferent admixture system the addition with high hardness and strength, the critical conditions for the generation of an explosion remain the same as for chemically uniform solid explosives.
