Flashcards in Terminology Deck (39):
symbol detonation ratio of a circle to diameter (3.1459265).
perimeter of a circle.
length of a straight line through the center of an object.
half the distance of a diameter
half the distance that the explosive force of an explosive breaches through. (3 dimensional) (AFTER THE ROUNDING RULES)
lacking depth, A line example; the horizon
area with no depth only surface. Example; the top of a table.
area plus depth. Example; a brick
surface set in 2 dimensional. Length x width.
amount of space occupied by 3 dimensional objects. Length x width x height.
rectangle with equal four sides, no depth (2 dimensional)
object with 6 sides has depth (3 dimensional)
a circle with depth. Example; a roll of quarters (3 dimensional)
a cylinder with a triangular top. Example; ice cream cone
a factor of a number that the root is itself times itself. Example; square root of 9=3. 3 x 3 = 9.
the factor of a number when the root is itself times itself. Example; the cube root of 27=3. 3 x 3 x 3 = 27.
a numerical representation indicating a quotient of two numbers. Example; 1/2, 1/4. A portion, A fragment.
a part of a fraction above line and signifies the number to be divided by the denominator.
part of a fraction below line and that fractions divisor of the numerator.
fragment or part of a whole number expressed in numbers by percentage. Example; .12, .32
entity not a fragment.
taking the first number passed the decimal point and rounding it up to the nearest whole number. Example; 3.12=4, 4.56=5, 3.78=4, round down 4.49=4, 2.15=2
taking the numbers two places passed the decimal and rounding up to the nearest whole number if it is .50 or above and rounding down to the nearest whole number if it is .49 or lower. Example; round up 4.56=5, 3.78=4, round down 4.49=4, 2.15=2
change from solid to gaseous state relatively slow (burning)
instantaneously or rapid change from solid to a gaseous state.
consist of 8 blocks of M5A1 C-4 PKG. wt 20 lbs
M-37 satchel charge
consist of 16 blocks M112 C-4 PKG. wt 20 lbs
M183 satchel charge
consist of one or more blocks of explosive. Example; you have 4 trees to destroy, each tree takes 4 blocks of TNT. To destroy all 4 trees, take 4 charges, each charge consisting of 4 (1lb) blocks of TNT for a total of 16 (1lb) blocks of TNT.
single entity of explosive
M60 used for non-electrical firing system. M-81 used for MDI.
modern demolition (initiators)
consist of an initiator (usually M-60), time fuse (usually M700), and a non-electric blasting cap (usually M-7)
non-electric firing system
consist of power source (usually CD-450), firing wire, and an electric cap (usually M-6).
electric firing system
det cord tied into itself in a circle in between charges from which branch lines are tied off.
strip of det cord with a priming knot on one end. used to prime a charge and tie into a ring main.
a knot used to take the place of a blasting cap to prime a charge. Example; uli, spiral, double overhand knot, four wrap, eight wrap, wiseman knot, det cord lace, and sliding uli.
used to connect det cord together and tie in firing systems to ring main.
quickest method of constructing a charge and attacking a traget. Most amount of explosives, conventional charge, external charge.
