When the results are analyzed after the trials with the up and down method, it becomes problematical to make the intervals of the fall heights the same size or to make the logarithms of integrals of the fall height the same. Professor Dixon et al. described that, in the case of sensitivity data for explosive substances, the distribution of the probability of explosion becomes closer to a normal distribution when the logarithm of the fall height is used rather than the fall height itself. In the up and down method, the analysis is done under the supposition that the distribution of explosion probability is a normal distribution. [Pg.99]

The standard deviation ( o ) of a normal distribution is also presumed for trials for the 50% explosion height (Hs ) with the up and down method. The 1/6 explosion height can be estimated using these two values. Accordingly it seems better to use the up and down method to find the 1/6 explosion height. [Pg.99]

Methods A to E are drop hammer tests and F to I are drop ball tests. The order of amounts of energy necessary for explosion to occur is [Pg.100]
