The detonation velocity deficit in bending flexible detonating fuses is studied, based on the detonation wave's corner effects and delay time phenomenon. A physical model and a theoretical mathematical equation of the detonation velocity deficit are established by using the dimensional analysis. Based on experimental data, a semi-empirical formula of the detonation velocity deficit for bending fuses in the same charge size is derived. It is shown that the detonation velocity deficit and the reciprocal of the curvature radius are in an exponential relationship.
