Term of the week:

High explosive vs. high order explosion

These two terms, although they seem similar, in fact describe very different things. A high explosive is a material that has an explosion velocity of greater than 1000 m/s, or a material capable of sustaining a detonation. A high order explosion describes an explosive event where the blast pressure front moves rapidly, shattering objects in its path.
