Expansion Waves in Metals Vaporized by Electron Beam Pulses.
BALLISTIC RESEARCH LABS ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND MD
Pagination or Media Count:
An initial attempt to detect vaporization expansion waves in ribbons of copper and lead is described. Vaporization energy is deposited by impulsive, electron beam irradiation. The approaches used to prevent inundation of the expected signals by those directly related to the electron pulse device were not adequate. New designs, reflecting inferred results of the exposures, are included with an experimantal program directed toward preventing signal inundation. Author
