Term of the week:

Low explosive vs. low order explosion

These two terms, although they seem similar, in fact describe very different things. A low explosive is a material that has an explosion velocity of less than 1000 m/s. A low order explosion describes an explosive event where the blast pressure front moves slowly, displacing or heaving (rather than shattering) objects in its path.
