Abstract : Piezo-electric gauge records were taken of the pressure of single section and two section unstacked charges and also of four section stacked charges. It was found that the four section stacked charge was the only type that gave smooth pressure-time curves. The velocity dispersion for this type of charge was much smaller than for the other ones.
