Abstract:

The damping process of explosion in tubes was considered as behavior of a cold plasma in a magnetic field. From theoretical considerations and experimental data, an explosive charge acted on the explosion as a generator and electromagnetic oscillations in a broad frequency range including very high frequencies. The electromagnetic field arising in the tube affects the process in the reaction zone and is the main factor causing the damping of detonation.
