by

of
the
Ordnance
Technical
Intelligence
Agenr
Y.
At
th~nt
tirio;
the
ncope
of
ths
Encyclopedia
included
duly
explosives
nomenclature
and
a
brief
statement
of
uses
for
each
entry.
Prelimi2.nary
research,,
however,
quickly
revealed
that
unclassifiedpublicaton-..
in
the explosives
field
were
either
outdated
by
-vhe
69conA
Worl
Wa,
or
were
too
technical
or
t~oo
brief
to
be
useful
to
the
novice
working
with
explosive~s
data,
The
ecope
of
the
present
Encyclopedia~
was
determined
by
this
gap
iln
publications
on
ez-plosives*
The
Encyclopedia
is
intended
to
serve
as
a
research
and
reference
aid
on
domestic
and
foreign
explosives,
both
industrial
and
military.
It
has
been
prepared
as
Pa
relimainary
edition
with
the
hope
that
its
users
will
readily
contribute
their
suggestions,
additions,
and
general
Iyaprovements.
These
suggestions
will
be
incorporated
into
a
later
final
edition.
The
main
body
of the
Encyclopedia
is
divided
into three
sections:
Glossary,,
General
Section,
and
Foreign
Section.
In
addition, there
is an
appendix
and
a
bibliographyW.
The
Glasnary
contains
primarily
thbose
ter-As
which
either
are
unique
to
explosives
or
which
have
a
partioular
specialired
meaning
when
applied
to
explosives,,
Thus,
termssuchas
"hygroscopicity"
which
do
kxot
chango
in
meanin~g
when
describing
explosives
are
omitted,
while those
Like
"power"
which
have
a
particular
definition
forexplosives
are
Included.
The
General
Sectiou
it#
ntended
to
coverdomestic
&r4
foreign
sandarciexplosives
that
are
currently
in
use,
or
vaere,
in
use
during
World
War
II. It
also
includes
some
explosi-Te
co~pcsitions
which
havebeen
seriously,
considered
for
standardization
by
the
United
Stat-es
in
recent
years*
With
few
