Detonics of explosive systems
Basic principles and methods of application
This course will provide learners with the basic knowledge necessary to understand and predict the operation of explosive systems and their effects.
The course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and includes:
- 21 hours of lectures
- 3 hours of presentation of activities and resources of an explosives R&D facility
- 6 hours of practical work/tutorials
To provide learners with the basic information necessary to understand and predict the operation of military and civilian explosive systems and their effects.
This course can be supplemented by courses DET 004 "Explosives", DET 005 "Improvement in pyrotechnic safety and powder magazines", DET 007 "Applied pyrotechnics" and DET 020 "Warheads".
Course level: Basic
To follow this course, we strongly recommended reviewing/refreshing your knowledge of continuous media mechanics, compressible fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.
