Abstract
Explosions are generalized as the result of a rapid release of pressure without regard for the source of pressure; they may include a confined thermal explosion, a confined deflagration, a detonation, or simply pressurized gas. Each of these sources is examined in broad terms and some basic similarities of the physical processes are suggested.
