Abstract:

Measurements were performed on bridge wire assemblies to relate their electrical, thermal, and physical characteristics. A series of electrical tests were performed using dc and pulsed dc. Temperature-current relationships were determined. The temperature-self destruct point of the wire element was ascertained. New variables were discovered which, unless taken into account, can possible invalidate all electro-explosive device instrumentation calibration developed during previous programs of this type. These and other design function criteria are presented in the technical discussion. Elliptical reflectors are also studied and the results are examined in connection with general optical theory.
