Title: The ignition temperature of solid explosives with the boundary temperature increasing at a constant rate. Revision 1

Abstract

Goal was to determine variation of ignition temperature with heating rate for some common explosives. Numerical calculations for HMX and TATB are in agreement with experiment. Numerical results also fit a simple curve (single Arrhenius reaction). A simple modification to the One-Dimensional Time to Explosion (ODTE) method would provide data matching the boundary conditions of this paper. A mathematical model is derived to explain this fitting function.
