  • O-206 TNT and Blast Equivalency Characterization of Energetic Materials

    31 July 2019

    When dealing with energetic materials, TNT Equivalency is commonly used for different purposes. For scientific purposes, it is a means to compare the explosive effects delivered by different energetic compositions, by expressing them in terms of an equivalent TNT detonation.
