Краткое описание

This paper explores how particles interact with one another in the fireball of an explosion. The dispersal of a tracer, powdered lanthanum oxide (as La2O3), is investigated, as are the effects of the entrainment of soil in the explosive fireball. Experiments have involved detonating 15 g charges of C-4 in a sealed 5 L detonation vessel under atmospheres of nitrogen or air, and in contact with quartz sand, black earth, or clay. It has been found that particle interactions serve to increase the overall size of particles because the particles fuse together, deposit onto one another, and form agglomerates. As bigger particles are heavier and less able to stay suspended in the air, particle interactions with soil serve to decrease the quantity of the powdered tracer that remains aerosol sized. Essentially, particle interactions in the fireball reduce the number of particles that are small enough to stay suspended in the air.
