Abstract : Heat of explosion, ignition temperature, and McLain Propagation Index, PI, defined as heat of explosion divided by ignition temperature, are correlated for various pyrotechnic delay and ignition compositions. A novel propagation index, described by heat of explosion, ignition temperature, burning rate, and density is proposed as a comparative screening criterion for pyrotechnic compositions. (Author)
