What we did

The figure shows Nammo’s model of detonation of High Explosive (TNT) tube experiments. IMPETUS software with discrete particle physics is used to simulate the detonation pressure, velocity and energy. Nammo has validated the discrete particle functionality of IMPETUS software used for detonation waves in super-compressed gases.
