This graduate text, and Cooper's companion introductory text ('Introduction to the Technology of Explosives'), serve the same markets as the successful explosives reference by Meyer, now in its 4th edition. VCH also published the International Journal of Propellants, Explosives, and Pyrotechnics. The resulting package would give VCH the major presence in the field.
This text presents the basic technologies used in the engineering of explosives and explosive systems, i.e., chemistry, burning, detonation, shock waves, initiation theories, scaling. The book is written for upper-division undergraduate or graduate-level scientists and engineers, and assumes a good grasp of basic physics, chemistry, mechanics and mathematic through calculus. It is based on lecture notes used for graduate courses at the Dept. of Energy Laboratories, and could serve as a core text for a course at schools of mining or military engineering. The intent of the book is to provide the engineer or scientist in the field with an understanding of the phenomena involved and the engineering tools needed to solve/ design/ analyze a broad range of real problems.

From the Publisher:

This text presents the basic technologies used in the engineering of explosives and explosion systems. The six sections cover the chemistry of explosives, energetics of explosives, shock waves, detonation, and initiation and intiators. Concise descriptions of the physical processes and underlying theory are expressed in terms. Special features include solved problems in each technical area, extensive data on explosive materials and their properties and behavior, and many useful reference lists and bibliographies.

From the Back Cover:

Explosives Engineering Paul W. Cooper Explosives Engineering presents the basic technologies used in the engineering of explosives and explosion systems. The book's six sections cover the chemistry of explosives, energetics of explosives, shock waves, detonation, and initiation and initiators. An understanding of basic physics, chemistry, mechanics, and mathematics through calculus is assumed. Concise descriptions of the physical processes and underlying theory are expressed in terms as useful for the designer or analyst as for the engineer. Special features include solved problems in each technical area, extensive data on explosive materials and their properties and behavior, and many useful reference lists and bibliographies. This book will help engineers, scientists, and students acquire the engineering tools needed to understand, analyze, and solve a broad range of explosion problems and design applications. It also will interest crime and accident scene investigators, and anyone concerned with the regulatory and environmental issues involved in the transportation, storage, and commerce of explosive materials.
