ABSTRACT
Correlation dependences between the critical diameter of high explosive (HE) charges and characteristics of their shock-wave sensitivity are theoretically justified. Relations for the critical radius of curvature of the detonation-wave front and for the critical detonation diameter are derived on the basis of the author�s theory of the critical diameter and the generalized kinetic characteristic of HE decomposition determined from the experimental dependence of the distance of transition of the initiating shock wave to the detonation wave on the wave amplitude. A qualitative analysis of these relations reveals good agreement with available experimental data. Key words: detonation, critical diameter, sensitivity, shock-wave initiation of detonation, HE decomposition kinetics.
