A shock-wave signature technique based on the 130kilobar phase transition in Armco iron was explored. In addition, a spherical shock source to be used in shock reflection studies was developed and calibrated. The results of a detonation-rate study, using both liquid and solid explosive systems, as well as some theoretical computations of the oblique collision of metallic liners, are also presented.
