In order to determine the performance of an explosive, various parameters such as the detonation pressure, detonation velocity, heat generation, and fume generation of the explosive should be accurately described. In this study, the pressure increase, volume expansion, temperature increase, and detonation velocity of high explosives were tried to determined theoretically based on thermochemical theories. From this study, a Fortran program for calculating the explosion parameters, which can influence on the performance of explosives, was developed and applied to the high-explosives, ANFO and NG.
