Thermal Conductivity of Ammonium Nitrate

In recent years, there have been numerous incidents involving runaway reactions with ammonium nitrate emulsion (ANE) explosives. In most cases, thermal explosions have occurred during abnormal (dry-running or deadheading) pumping operations. Current work at the Canadian Explosives Research Laboratory (CERL) involves assessing the thermal hazards of ANE explosives in order to better understand the effects of formulation and physical properties on thermal stability.
