Abstract:

The prospect of obtaining a material which will limit firing energies to desired values, will maintain stability after repeated firings, and will also possess desirable manufacturing characteristics seems reasonable. Spark testing has been conducted to determine the correlation between the energy to rupture the diaphragm and combinations of electrode to electrode resistance, diaphragm thickness, and spark chamber volume. One hundred ninety squibs were shipped to Flare-Northern Division of Atlantic Research Corp. for loading and firing using various explosive mixtures. Results are reported herein. Future work is also indicated.
