Abstract: A novel method is given to estimate the detonation velocity of mostly ideal and less ideal composition explosives. This method is based on the utilization of theoretical specific impulse of the explosive, which can be designated as a monopropellant, and loading density. The simple empirical equation in calculating the detonation velocity has the form: DCJ=1.453ISPρ0 + 1.98, where DCJ is the Chapman-Jouguet detonation velocity, ISP is the specific impulse and ρ0 is the initial density. Calculated detonation velocity by this procedure shows good agreement with respect to measured detonation velocity.
