Abstract:

Equations for initial heating rate, resistance rise, power input and energy input for exploding wires are derived from elementary physical principles. The theory ib expected to be valid for an interval beginning at switch-on and ending sometime before the wire expands. Comparisons are made between different wires and pairs of elements are identified which may show similar explosion histories. Author
