Abstract:

An analysis of the problem of breaking up solids into very small particles by means of explosive loading techniques is made. The important parameters which effect the strength and ductility of solids under static slow strain rate loading conditions are discussed as well as the parameters and modes of fracture which are important under dynamic loading conditions. Some possible paths to direct future research are indicated. Author
