This paper presents physical and chemical properties and explosion parameters of ammonium nitrate. Emphasis is on detonation velocity, sensitivity, fume qualities and other performance parameters of ammonium nitrate-fuel oil (ANFO) mixtures widely used as explosives. The advantages of ANFO, primarily in material costs and safety, are underlined. Sa...
