- Explosives : Explosive agent; a compound or mixture susceptible of a rapid chemical reaction, as gunpowder, or nitroglycerin.
- Detonation : Extremely fast combustion in solids or fluids, which produces a supersonic shock wave with a detonation velocity; self-propagating through compression, heating and ignition of the explosive
- Countermining : Disabling or detonation of hostile land and sea mines using sympathetic detonation, principally caused by deliberately placed explosives
- Line charge : An explosive formed as a long, flexible package, intended to have a linear blast pattern much longer than it is wide; military applications in clearing mines; general applications in breaking concrete, paving, ice, or log jams
- Ditching dynamite : A dynamite containing 50% nitroglycerin, deliberately made shock-sensitive so it can be used for commercial excavation without complex interconnection, relying on sympathetic detonation to fire all charges
- Detonating cord : A fuse with an extremely high, explosive-range propagation velocity, used for the essentially simultaneous triggering of explosive charges or to deliver a long, narrow blast; typically a fabric or plastic jacket filled with PETN or PBXN-8 and initiated with a blasting cap
