Abstract:

A summary of the important results obtained in this research is given. The subject matter included 1 high explosive generators for fast particles 2 mechanism of cratering in ultra high velocity impact 3 observations of vaporization accompanying ultra high velocity impact 4 mechanism for crater expansion in shaped charge penetration 5 ionization and electron densities in detonating solid explosives 6 electrical fields and electromagnetic radiation from chemical detonations 7 external detonation generated plasmas 8 the effect of pressure on the degree of ionization in gaseous detonations 9 ionization and electrical conductivity and its relationship to the deflagration to detonation transition in solid explosives and 10 transition to detonation in liquid explosives.
