Lemaire, predecessor of the author as Director of the Institut National des Mines. Explosives Used in Belgian Theft. They said that the burglary, the second in six months at the same shop, was the first time thieves had used explosives to rob a store in Belgium.

A Brussels hospital official said the bombs were packed with nails, one way that bomb-makers use to maximize the damage from shrapnel after the bomb explodes.“The bomb contained nails to create more victims.

Some victims have nails in their bodies,” spokesman for the University Hospital Gasthuisberg in Leuven Marc Decramer told reporters.A hospital X-ray of one of the victims, obtained by Author: Charlotte Alfred.

Explosives have a unique identification code, which must be entered into the register. technology in recent years. The majority of modern explosive materials no longer contain high percentages of explosive oils which may exude as the products age causing them to become more sensitive and/or less stable.

Additionally, other newer explosive materials contain inhibitors and/or stabilizers that lengthen the shelf life of the products. In the US and Canada alone, blasters use more than 6 billion pounds of explosives and 75 million detonators per year.

Coal mining accounts for two-thirds of consumed explosives of which more than 80% of it is ANFO. Today, sophisticated explosive materials and new technologies are being utilized to improve the quality of life for all of us.

An explosive is not particularly energetic, and its combustion energy is far less than that of a normal combustible, however, grams of an explosive with a density and a detonating velocity of metres per second will easily smash one ton of rock in a few millionths of a second.

Classification of explosives. Permitted explosives. These explosives have been designed to use in u/g coalmines to avoid methane-coal dust explosion. These are available in granular, gelatinous and slurry forms. For wet coal mines gelatinous type is more suited. The V.O.D of these explosives is in the range of to 16, ft/sec.

Police searches later found 15 kgs (about 32 lbs) of explosives, as well as nails and screws found in the explosive devices in Tuesday’s attacks.

By Philip Blenkinsop BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgian investigators believe explosives used in the attacks in Paris in November may have been made in an apartment in Brussels that was rented under a false name and where a fingerprint of a key.

military compared with commercial explosives, and on theoretical against practical aspects of the technology. The quantity of military explosives made in the Second World War exceeded the total ever made for peaceful use by mankind.

On this count it could be argued that military explosives should occupy a major portion of this book. More than 1, lbs of high explosive were packed into underground chambers along a seven-mile front. On June 7, 19 of the mines detonated in the space of 30 seconds in the biggest series of controlled explosions yet seen.

Buildings within a mile radius rocked on their foundations, and the bang was heard in Downing Street. The attacker, identified as Oussama Zariouh (alt: Usamah Zaryuh) was a year-old Moroccan national who had moved from his home country to Belgium in and had been living in the Molenbeek neighbourhood of Brussels since He was only known to police for sexual misconduct, but had no identified ties to terrorism.

Used as the high velocity explosive lens in the implosion type nuclear weapon, Fat Man: Composition H6: 45% RDX, 30% TNT, 20% powdered aluminium and 5% wax: Replaced Torpex for use in naval applications. DBX (Depth Bomb Explosive) 21% RDX, 21% ammonium nitrate, 40% TNT, 18% powdered aluminium.Many explosives have been stud-ied in past years to determine their suitability for mili-tary use and most have been found wanting.

Several of those found acceptable have displayed certain characteristics that are considered undesirable and, therefore, limit their use-fulness in military applications.An explosive (or explosive material) is a reactive substance that contains a great amount of potential energy that can produce an explosion if released suddenly, usually accompanied by the production of light, heat, sound, and explosive charge is a measured quantity of explosive material, which may either be composed solely of one ingredient or be a mixture containing at least two.
