Download and read online The Chemistry of Powder And Explosives in PDF and EPUB The present volume contains in one binding the whole contents of Volume I, first published in May, 1941, and the whole contents of Volume II which was published in March, 1943. The book was primarily for chemists. The writing of it was commenced in order that a textbook might be available for the use of students in the course in powder and explosives which the author gave for about twenty years (nearly every year since the first World War) to fourth-year and graduate students of chemistry and of chemical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[...] The aim of the book has been to describe as clearly and interestingly as possible, and as fully as seemed profitable the modes of behavior, both physical and chemical, of explosive substances, whether these modes find practical application or not. Historical material has been included where it was thought that it contributed to this end, and has not been included elsewhere or for any other reason. It is a fact that a knowledge of the history of ideas, of persons, or of things produces something of the same sympathetic understanding of them that living with them and working with them does.-Print ed.

Download and read online Boom in PDF and EPUB Black powder, the world's first chemical explosive, was originally developed during the Tang dynasty in China.It was a crude mixture at first, but over time chemists discovered the optimum proportion of sulfur, charcoal, and nitrates, as well as the best way to mix them for a complete and powerful reaction. Author and chemistry buff Simon Quellen Field takes readers on a decades-long journey through the history of things that go boom, from the early days of black powder to today's modern plastic explosives. Not just the who, when, and why, but also the how. How did Chinese alchemists come to create black powder? What accidents led to the discovery of high explosives? How do explosives actually work on a molecular scale? Boom! The Chemistry and History of Explosives reviews the original papers and patents written by the chemists who invented them, to shed light on their development, to explore the consequences of their use for good and ill, and to give the reader a basic understanding of the chemistry that makes them possible.

Download and read online Black and Smokeless Powders in PDF and EPUB Some 600 pipe bomb explosions have occurred annually in the United States during the past several years. How can technology help protect the public from these homemade devices? This book, a response to a Congressional mandate, focuses on ways to improve public safety by preventing bombings involving smokeless or black powders and apprehending the makers of the explosive devices. It examines technologies used for detection of explosive devices before they explode--including the possible addition of marking agents to the powders--and technologies used in criminal investigations for identification of these powders--including the possible addition of taggants to the powders--in the context of current technical capabilities. The book offers general conclusions and recommendations about the detection of devices containing smokeless and black powders and the feasibility of identifying makers of the devices from recovered powder or residue. It also makes specific recommendations about marking and tagging technologies. This volume follows the work reported in Containing the Threat from Illegal Bombings (NRC 1998), which studied similar issues for bombings that utilize high explosives.

Download and read online Vom griechischen Feuer zum Dynamit in PDF and EPUB "Beginnend mit dem berühtem ""griechischen Feuer"", das die Existenz des byzantinischen Reichs über Jahrhunderte sicherte, stellt dieses Buch allgemeinverständlich die Entwicklung der zivilen und militärischen Sprengstoffe dar. Als Katalysator bestimmter gesellschaftlicher Entwicklungen, wie etwa beim Zerfall der feudalen Ordnung oder dem Eintritt ins Industriezeitalter, wird den Sprengstoffen in historischen Darstellungen oft zu wenig Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt. Dabei veränderte die technische Nutzung dieser Stoffe nicht nur die Waffentechnik, sondern auch die insutrielle Fertigung von Konsumgütern. Die vorliegende kulturgeschichtliche Darstellung schließt diese Lücke. Durch die Vielzahl der Referenzen kann der Leser das Buch als Ausgangspunkt verwenden, sich je nach Vorkennntis und Ausbildung auch angrenzende Fachgebiete zu erschließen. Historische, volks- und waffenkundliche, naturwissenschaftliche und politische Aspekte sind mit der Geschichte der Explosivstoffe eng verknüpft."

Download and read online Chemie des Ingenieurs in PDF and EPUB Dieses Buch erhebt nicht den Anspruch, besser in die Chemie einzuführen, als dies andere, vorab die ausgezeichneten Lehrbücher der allgemeinen Chemie von G. SCHWARZENBACH oder L. PAULING tun. Das ·Wesentliche unserer "Chemie des Ingenieurs" liegt vielmehr darin, daß ihr Autor zusammen mit den Lesern, die er sich wünscht, die Chemie bewußt, oft gar eigenwillig vom Standpunkt des Inge nieurs aus betrachten will, deshalb aus der Gesamtheit der Stoffe und der Fülle der Erscheinungen mit Entschiedenheit jene herausgreifend, welche den Ingenieur selber betreffen und unmittelbar angehen. Unter technischen Gesichtspunkten zu einem Ganzen geordnet, soll sich daraus eine Lehre der Stoffe und chemischen Reaktionen ergeben, welche eindrücklicher als bisher die Bedeutung der Chemie, wesentliche Hilfswissenschaft des Ingenieurs zu sein, aufzuzeigen und das Interesse von Ingenieuren jeder Richtung an Fragen der Chemie zu wecken vermag. Werden dabei auf der einen Seite beim Leser Kenntnisse der elementaren Chemie voraus gesetzt, so sollte umgekehrt über eine gedrängte, häufig bloß skizzenhafte Dar stellung nicht hinausgegangen und vom Hilfsmittel tabellarischer Ubersichten reichlich Gebrauch gemacht werden. Einzelnen Abschnitten beigefügte Lite raturhinweise möchten zugleich zum vertieften Studium des einzelnen Gegen 'Standes die erwünschte Anleitung geben. Bei der Bearbeitung der Aufgabe, die sich der Verfasser gestellt, kam ihm naturgemäß sehr zu Hilfe, was ihm der Chemieunterricht an die Ingenieure der Eidgenössischen Technischen Hochschule wie die Anwendung der chemischen Wissenschaften auf das Gesamtgebiet der Materialprüfung und Werkstoffkunde ständig an neuen Erfahrungen vermitteln.

Download and read online Chemistry of Pyrotechnics in PDF and EPUB Primarily driven by advancing technology and concerns for safety, advancement in the world of pyrotechnics and high-energy materials has exploded in the past 25 years. The promulgation of new government regulations places new and more stringent restrictions on the materials that may be used in energetic mixtures. These regulations now mandate numerous training programs, and initiate other actions, such as OSHA’s Process Safety Management standard, intended to eliminate accidents and incidents. Unfortunately, the US lacks an organized, broad-range academic program to cover the science and use of energetic materials and educate the next generation of pyrotechnicians. Designed as a bridge to allow a smooth and confident transition for personnel coming from a chemistry background into the practical world of explosives, Chemistry of Pyrotechnics: Basic Principles and Theory, Second Edition emphasizes basic chemical principles alongside practical, hands-on knowledge in the preparation of energetic mixtures. It examines the interactions between and adaptations of pyrotechnics to changing technology in areas such as obscuration science and low-signature flame emission. Much more than a simple how-to guide, the book discusses chemical and pyrotechnic principles, components of high-energy mixtures, and elements of ignition, propagation, and sensitivity. It offers heat compositions, including ignition mixes, delays, thermites, and propellants and investigates the production of smoke and sound as well as light and color. Promoting the growth and expansion of pyrotechnics as a science, Chemistry of Pyrotechnics: Basic Principles and Theory, Second Edition provides practitioners with the ability to apply chemical principles and logic to energetic materials and thereby make the field as productive, useful, and safe as possible.
