Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This work in the important field of explosives is due to the plans of several experts to issue a large, comprehensive handbook of the entire technique of explosives. Difficulties encountered at the time did not allow this to be carried out, so that the author, to whom the preparation of the section on nitroglycerine and dynamite was entrusted, decided to issue his work as a special volume. This on one hand may explain the breadth of the treatment in including all matter worth while on the subject, and on the other hand, a certain limitation of material. For example, the theory of explosives in general is assumed to be known. A discussion of it seems unnecessary, particlulary on account of the recent (1921) appearance of the classical work on explosives and detonators by Kast. It is also assumed that the ordinary methods of determining the value of explosives and blasting materials is known.

On the other hand, the technical side of the manufacture of nitroglycerine, with particular reference to recent advances and improvements, is treated at great length, as well as a careful characterization of nitroglycerine with critical consideration of previous publications, references to recent research and to experimental work by the author.

With an experience of twenty years and innumerable personal tests the author dares to hope he has made a welcome contribution to the knowledge of an important branch of the art, which may be of use to all who manufacture, test or use explosives.

(These comments from the publisher are from 1923.)
