Whether explosives are being used to clear land for construction and digging deeper mines, or are being encountered by the military and police, it is important to understand how various chemical mixtures and detonators affect the power of an explosion. High-speed imaging can be used to quantitatively capture explosions, the resulting damage, and to measure other important parameters of the explosion. The data collected can provide information to aid in the understanding and characterization of a detonation, which can then lead to the creation of better and more precise explosives.
