One aspect of this research includes determining how much chemical residue remains after the explosion of ordnance--to include trinitrotoluene (TNT), cyclotrimethylene trinitramine (RDX), and high-melting explosive (HMX).
Residue from high velocity of detonation explosives, such as cyclotrimethylene trinitramine (RDX) and pentaerythritol (PETN), have in practice proven more difficult to detect than residue from lower velocity of detonation explosives, such as ammonium nitrate-based explosives.
