Abstract: In this paper, detonation temperature of CNO and CHNO explosives is evaluated by the base of atomic composition and heat of formation. It is shown here how only atomic composition and condensed phase heat of formation of CNO and CHNO explosives are sufficient for reliable prediction of detonation temperature as compared to complicated computer codes. New correlations are introduced so that they can easily be applied for determining detonation temperature via specified different pathways of decomposition of explosives. Calculated detonation temperatures by this procedure for both pure and explosive formulations show good agreement with respect to measured and the BKWS-EOS predictions of detonation temperatures.
