loading density

[′lōd·iŋ ‚den· səd·ē]
(engineering)
The number of pounds of explosive per foot length of drill hole.
(ordnance)
A term applied specifically to explosive charges of projectiles, bombs, warheads, and so on; it is the quantity of explosive per unit volume, usually expressed as grams per cubic centimeter.
