How much energy consume to destroy?

  1. Nov 25, 2011 #1
    When some gun powder explode in a iron hollow cylinder , how much energy consume to destroy that cylinder?
    We have inner and outer diameter and height .
    I calculate all of energy by enthalpy of combustion , I don`t know how much convert to thermal energy and how much consume to destroy .

    I guess it also depends partly on the cylinder.
