A TECHNIQUE FOR ARTIFICIAL CAVITATION AND DETONATION-WAVE SHAPING,
PICATINNY ARSENAL DOVER N J AMMUNITION ENGINEERING DIRECTORATE
Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of the investigation was to determine the effect of discontinuities in explosives occurring as a result of the loading process, when the discontinuities were simulated by expanded polystyrene foam. The investigation was part of a larger program to determine the limits of permissible cavitation in certain shaped charges. It was hoped that the use of polystyrene foam would give precise control over the extent and location of simulated cavitation voids. Author
