Detonation Phenomena of Condensed Explosives

Shiro Kubota

This book presents fundamental theory of shock and detonation waves as well as selected studies in detonation research in Japan, contributed by selected experts in safety research on explosives, development of industrial explosives, and application of explosives. It also reports detonation research in Japan featuring industrial explosives that include ammonium nitrate-based explosives and liquid explosives.

Intended as a monographic-style book, it consistently uses technical terms and symbols and creates organic links between various detonation phenomena in application of explosives, fundamental theory of detonation waves, measurement methods, and individual studies. Among other features, the book presents a historical perspective of shock wave and detonation research in Japan, pedagogical materials for young researchers in detonation physics, and an introduction to works in Japan, including equations of state, which are worthy of attention but about which very little is known internationally. Further, the concise pedagogical chapters also characterize this book as a primer of detonation of condensed explosives and help readers start their own research.

About the Author

Shiro Kubota is a group leader in the Industrial Safety and Physical Risk Analysis Group at the Research Institute of Science for Safety and Sustainability (RISS), the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). He received his Doctor of Engineering from Kumamoto University in 1996 and became an assistant professor in the Department of Earth Resources Engineering at Kyushu University. He moved to AIST in 2003 and has served in his current position since 2016. He also became a visiting professor in the Department of Earth Resources Engineering at Kyushu University in 2020. His research interests focus on detonation physics, physical hazard analysis, numerical modeling, and application of explosions of high-energetic materials.
