Abstract:

A literature survey in capacitor discharge extrusion and dynamic effects of shock loading was completed. A stress analysis considering the effect of explosive shock type loadings is nearing completion. The objective of the program is to extrude steel to 14 in. rounds by the use of capacitor discharge energy. Pressure chamber requirement is a vessel which must hold hydrostatic pressure of 200,000 psi and be capable of containing shock energy from a 155,000 joule capacitor discharge.
