Researchers Develop Bomb Detection System Using Sound Waves
2013-10-24 14:01:22

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Dynamic Systems and Control Conference have developed a remote bomb detection system that can identify whether a bomb contains low-yield or high-yield explosives. The device is the first remote bomb detection that is able to discern between these two parameters. Existing methods require the user to get really close to the suspicious object, but the latest device is a remote...

2013-02-21 11:19:17

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory [ Watch the Video Advancing Explosives Detection Capabilities: Vapor Detection ] Method focuses on direct, real-time vapor detection rather than collection of explosives particles; could change paradigm for explosives screening A quick, accurate and highly sensitive process to reliably detect minute traces of explosives on luggage, cargo or traveling passengers has been demonstrated by scientists at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest...

Shock Tube Used By Researchers For Insight Into Physics Early In Blasts
2012-11-27 12:45:38

Sandia National Laboratories Sandia´s one-of-a-kind multiphase shock tube began with a hallway conversation that led to what engineer Justin Wagner describes as the only shock tube in the world that can look at how shock waves interact with dense particle fields. The machine is considered multiphase because it can study shock wave propagation through a mixture of gas and solid particles. Shock tubes – machines that generate shock waves without an explosion – have...

Dogs Inspire New Electronic Nose

Dynamite, invented by Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel in 1867, is an explosive that harnesses the potential of nitroglycerin to explode. Normally it is sold in an 8 inch long stick and weighs about .6 pounds although other sizes do exist. TNT is usually the standard by which explosive power is gauged; however, dynamite actually has more than 60% greater energy density than TNT. Nitroglycerin dissolved in nitrocellulose and a small amount of ketone can form another type of dynamite. This type...
