A new estimate of the threshold condition is proposed for shock-induced chemical reactions in inorganic powder mixtures. The condition is based on a concept of energy balance whereby a sudden increase in interface areas is equated to fluctuating local kinetic energy. Estimates based on the analysis for Ni/Al and Ti/Si compare well with recent real time measurements.
