An ecological study on the effects of certain concentrations of cacodylic acid on selected fauna and flora by Kelly H Oliver( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was made of the effects of cacodylic acid on the flora and fauna of specific ecotones. Approximate lethal dosages have been determined for specific plants and animals under certain conditions. The five ecotones, sandhills, hammock, grasslands, pond and stream, are briefly characterized and the effects of cacodylic acid on the inhabitants of each are summarized. (Author)
Fuzed Insensitive General Purpose Bomb Containing AFX-645( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The U.S. Air Force Wright Laboratory, Armament Directorate recently completed an in-house technology demonstration program. The program objective was to develop a general purpose bomb which can be stored as an Insensitive Munition (IM). The system developed integrates a modified FMU-139 fuze and a modified Mk-82 (500 lb.) bomb containing the insensitive high explosive AFX-645. Goals of the program include demonstration of a fuzed bomb which achieves 1.2 hazard classification and a non-fuzed bomb which achieves 1.6 hazard classification while maintaining the lethality of tritonal. The goals of this technology demonstration program have been achieved. Wright Laboratory has developed an insensitive high explosive for general purpose bombs, designated AFX-645, which is readily initiated by a modified version of the FMU-139
Detonability of Some Natural Gas-Air Mixtures by Elizabeth Vanta( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Seven mixtures (ranging from 5.2 to 12.5 percent by volume) of natural gas in air were screened for their detonability using a bag test method. Erratic, uneven detonations were initiated at the 8.6 to 8.8 percent concentration level, with explosive charges ranging from 1001 to 1020 grams. At all other tested fuel concentrations deflagrations occurred. Although the detonations successfully propagated the entire length of the bag, a steady Chapman-Jouguet type wave front was not observed. The experimental detonation velocities and minimum initiator weight requirements are compared to those obtained in other studies under similar experimental conditions. (Author)
