Abstract:

Adequate experimental techniques - electrical and explosive - were developed and used to measure piezoresistance of alloys, electrical properties of insulators, shock impedance of alloys in insulators, time coverage, and rise time. In addition several types of experiments were conducted to confirm that the pressure induced pulses in the transducers are indeed due to a piezoresistive effect. Author
