Waterspout Created During an Underwater
Energy Test at UTEC's Underwater Energy
Various geologic conditions require specific 'types' of energy to maximize results.
The two main components of a chemical detonation are 'shock' energy and "gas" energy. Both different, necessary, and a resultant of all explosive detonations. Certain conditions require more "shock" energy, others require more 'gas' energy.
UTEC can test and evaluate any explosive product or specific formulation and determine the energy partition or ratio of "shock" to "gas" energy output for any specific commercial product or potential new formulation.
UTEC scientists can help you develop specific formulations to enable maximization of either 'gas' or 'shock' energy per your geologic conditions.
